Cleveland Hughes Jr. Is the creator of Healing Mitts Intentional boxing training™system. Cleveland started boxing to help manage his anxiety and depression. Boxing helped him manage his emotions and gave him confidence.
“In 2009, a therapist encouraged me to try boxing and that one decision changed my life. Boxing has allowed me to regulate my emotions, has continued to sharpen my mind and has given me confidence in my ability to overcome any obstacle. I am committed to elevating my skills as a boxing coach, in order to give people the same opportunities I have received from the sport.”

It’s a common practice in the fitness industry to tell people that they are not fit enough, or it’s time to shed those ‘covid 15’ lbs or any other weight loss gimmicks.
As fitness professionals, we have a unique opportunity to help people take care of their most important asset-their health! So why is the fitness industry so outwardly focused?
