THE STORY:

Heidi began boxing in 2008 at the suggestion of a friend. She is now a senior open female fighter in the light-heavyweight class. She is a USA Boxing certified coach and instructor at Uppercut Gym in NE Minneapolis and specializes in working with left-handed boxers. She is a southpaw herself. Heidi also holds a 200-hour RYS certificate for teaching yoga. She incorporates the breath and focus of yoga into her boxing training.

Heidi spent 2014 in training with the Women's USA Boxing Team, winning bronze at the 2014 Continential Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico and competing through quarter finals in the 2014 AIBA Women's World Championships. She is currently pursuing her dream of participating in the 2015 Olympic Qualifications for inclusion in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Knock em out Heidi! One of my favorite quotes I read before I compete! In every match, there is a second when the win is up for grabs and one person reaches out and grabs it. It may happen at he very beginning of a match, when one fighter comes right out swinging and catches the opponent before she's ready. The opportunity to win might happen in the middle of the match, when your opponent lets up for just a second, to catch her breath or gather her thoughts. Sometimes, the fight is up for grabs at the very end, when you both have been trying your hardest. No matter how tired you are, you find a way to dig down deep and make it happen. I don't care what you have thrown at me. I don't care if I'm tired or injured or trailing in the last second. I'm going to be the person who wants it the most. I want it so bad that I'm willing to die for it. I am going to be the one who summons my last ounce of strength and my last breath to do everything humanly possible to emerge victorious. And when the fight is over, I am going to be the one who won. -Ronda Rousey 3 years ago
