When an injury left Claire Quinn searching for a new form of exercise, her dad recommended one of his favorite sports - boxing.

It didn't take long before she was hooked, and started turning heads with her rapidly improving skills. She went on to become a Golden Gloves boxer, winning most of her fights by TKO, and losing only once in her first seven matches.

Her strong right hand also helped her fend off an attempted robbery when she was ambushed on the streets of Chicago. While she hopes to one day become a professional boxer, she currently works as a personal trainer and boxing coach, specializing in training kids with special needs and people with Parkinson's Disease.
