Felicia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Ironically, I couldn’t have started my career further from fitness. After graduating from Stanford and receiving my MBA from UCLA, I worked in sales and marketing with companies like Mattel and Sony. Most recently BBU (Before BoxUnion!) I was the VP of Sales & Marketing at Demand Media, now Leaf Group.
Throughout my life, I always loved fitness. I am still a total studio junkie. My (now) business partner, Todd Wadler, and I had known each other for over ten years and we saw a very clear gap in the market around boxing. It is such an empowering skill, and a total sweat session, but it is often extremely inaccessible in the fitness market. I put on my first pair of gloves when I was 16 after my dad suddenly passed away. Beyond a total body workout, it was cathartic and helped build my confidence.
We wanted to bring the amazing benefits of boxing to everyone—all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels in a way that was fun and accessible. From that belief, BoxUnion was born.
