Nigel’s own personal journey is amazing. She weighed close to 400 pounds when she decided things had to change. She joined a boxing club but it was more for serious fighters. She left and started teaching what she had learned remotely at parks. “I was surprised how quickly it grew, I was teaching all over Houston.” As her number of clients continued to grow, Nigel opened Women’s Elite Boxing Club in January of 2013. Her slogan “You don’t have to be a boxer to train like one”.
Over the last ten years Nigel has build not just a gym. She has built a community, a home for many others who want to stay fit. Nigel’s advice for someone just starting out or someone wanting to keep their New Year’s resolution, “Don’t over think it, don’t set unrealistic goals, commit to it and just do it. Come in and have fun and create a routine, your body will start changing.”
