It’s not often that you hear about two co-founders meeting on Tinder. But that’s actually the business origin story of this week’s Side Hustle Pro guest, Angela Jennings of BOOMBOX Boxing Club.
BOOMBOX is a boxing-inspired, hip-hop-fueled fitness studio.
A finance professional at a global accounting firm by day, Angela always knew she wanted to tap into her interest in food or fitness.
After being introduced to boxing three years ago by Tinder match and co-founder, Reggie Smith, Angela became passionate about the sport’s potential to be a fun and powerful workout to people of all fitness levels and backgrounds.
The pair launched their first studio in Washington, DC in 2019 and it’s now host to members who sweat through themed boxing workouts or private training with coaches.
In this episode, I really love what Angela had to share about:
- Deciding on a location when each co-founder lives in a different city
- Building buzz leading up to opening day
- Navigating the fitness industry during covid and how they are working to adapt
- How she’s doing this all while side hustling during a pandemic and so much more!
