You must be kinda a crazy stepping into the boxing ring against the multiple worldchampion of female boxing, Christina Hammer. For those who are not familiar with the world of professional boxing: this lady can knock out cold any man or woman at any given time. Still we were tempted to get some insider tips from her on the boxing canvas. And, we were surprised. Christina is such a lovely lady. If you see her in the ring, you would invite her for a cup of coffee and a girly chat but beware ones she puts on the boxing gloves. Luckily for us, she wasn’t there to hit us hard but to bear some sparring punches coming from our side which in fact for here were more like sweet caresses, our guess. Still there was a tension when she stood there, here piercing eyes pointed at us and here gloves in a ready position. 😉
The reason we could meet the wonderful Christina Hammer was thanks to German lingerie brand Anita during a press/blogger moment with the boxing diva in the Antwerp Boxing Academy. But it wasn’t a meet and greet. It was an active workshop that consisted of a solid warmup session followed by a demo of two times European champion Ermano Fegatilli. After that, we got the opportunity to get into the boxing ring ourselves with Christina. The common denominator: we all were dressed in Anita’s Momentum (2011) en DynamiX Star (2014). Both Anita sport bra’s were crowned with a Red Dot Design Award and excell in fit, support and ergonomics. Perfect, because when you’re meeting the queen of boxing in the ring, you’d better be geared up right. Kudos for Anita ! Such a great experience.
