Girls Just Wanna Box: For FUN and For REAL

GJWB and the concept (although it's not new girls wanting to box) was created in 2007 by Kristina Ejem because of her own personal boxing journey, wanting more and knowing there could be a better way with all the support and tools she dreamed of. Fast forward a decade of creating programs, events and all-female positive class environments within the typical boxing gym structure bringing boxing for fitness (fun) and boxing for competition (real) together in a five-level program. Each level has a symbol that Kristina loves and is carried throughout the branding to explain the technique and empowerment of boxing for women (and anyone really) in a new way. It wasn't until her now business partner Helene Jafine came on board in 2018 did GJWB 2.0 come to life with a line of boxing gloves and gear that are so desperately needed for women to #protectthepretty while boxing. Women aren't small men. 🤓🥊

Listen in as they give me a sneak peek into the soon-to-launch ⭐️ TEAM GJWB collective uniting the women around the world doing amazing things in boxing in hopes of growing and developing opportunities in the sport for women.
