Everyone should know how to defend themselves, and some women may feel more comfortable learning and working on self-defense with fellow women.

We had the opportunity to meet Reese Scott at an event.

One can learn about boxing by going to Women’s World of Boxing Gym, established in NYC in 2018. This is New York City’s first privately owned and operated women’s boxing gym located at 2147 2nd Avenue at 110 Street in East Harlem.

Reese Scott is the founder of Women’s World of Boxing Gym. She is a Former Heavyweight, Personal Group/Private Boxing Trainer, On-Set Boxing Consultant, a Registered Amateur Fighter and Licensed USA Boxing Coach. She has 10 years experience as a motivational boxing coach and has trained over 1,000 women and girls on her mission to open New York’s first women’s boxing gym.

She wanted a safe, uplifting and empowering boxing gym for women and girls to comfortably explore the sport of boxing. Here the organization provides annual mentoring boxing programs for teen girls while offering women and girls a safe space to train on both competitive and non-competitive levels.

Her group and private technical boxing training helps women ranging in age from 12-76, focusing on proper body mechanics in boxing, punching techniques, building combinations, stamina, endurance, self defense and in improving overall body strength by incorporating H.I.I.T. in between rounds.

This was the most popular workout in Manhattan on the ClassPass Inc. App.

Reese Scott was a Creative Director for a publishing company. Then she discovered boxing and left her secure job to start her own company, Women’s World of Boxing. She felt it was the right career path and a healthier lifestyle.

Reese was introduced to boxing seventeen years ago when she was looking for a way to get in shape and shed some of her 220 pounds. Through the sport, she found confidence, developed inner strength and lost over 70 pounds.

Besides her busy schedule, she gives back. Reese is a mentor and partner with PowerPlayNYC, a nonprofit organization that empowers young girls through sports and leadership programs.

She has been featured on ABC via Tamron Hall, Harry Connick Show on NBC, Now NY1, HarryTV, FreeformTV, CNBC, PIX11, Telemundo, TLC, ESPNW, amNewYork, DailyCandyNYC, Refinery29, Well+GoodNYC, SELF, Black Enterprise, DNAinfo, Small Business Opportunities, Madame Noire and in The New York Daily News, Shape and Competitor Magazine and Body Plus, a health + wellness + beauty publication in Japan
