Sport is often credited with helping people through difficult times, and for Gemma Price that sport was boxing.
Gemma set up her own boxing class so that she could share the benefits she had experienced with others.
Today ‘Boxing Pretty’ in Llanrumney in Cardiff has more than 30 women training every week, putting the gym in line for a National Lottery award.
Gemma said putting gloves on was the release she needed.
While training, she said she “cried, laughed, screamed and shouted.”
“Everything I was feeling for 10 years had literally left,” she added.
Gemma realised there was a lot of women who were feeling very similar and who needed “a safe space to release everything.”
The female boxing class is described as a “safe space” for women to come and train.
