I loved this story! I joined a kickboxing class, went once because I couldn't keep up. Now I'm going to try again and get out of "my comfort zone!" Thanks for sharing.

I found this article very inspirational. Fitness should do more stories on ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Please do a follow-up if Leah has a match and tell the readers the outcome.
