FIND A DREAM PARTNERS WITH ONE PUNCH FITNESS TO OPEN YOUTH BOXING FACILITY

PhilBoxing.com


Find A Dream?a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream?has announced that they have partnered with One Punch Fitness in Myrtle Beach and have opened up a new youth facility.

One Punch Fitness contains 1,400 square feet with a designated boxing area complete with state-of-the-art equipment, as well as cardio and weight machines throughout.

?We are excited to have Find A Dream here,? said Pete Guthy, former professional boxer and co-owner of One Punch Fitness. ?I?ve known Don Steele (Board member of Find A Dream) for a long time, and we have always been about supporting charities. I love boxing and love sharing it with other people, especially if it is going to help kids stay out of trouble. There are a lot of temptations out there nowadays, and boxing will teach kids dedication and discipline and keep them from going down the wrong road in life.?

Find A Dream?s program will be available to local youth on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m., and all day Saturday and Sunday. The program will include the fundamentals of boxing and core strength and conditioning. Additionally, One Punch Fitness will open up their 6 p.m. boxing class on Thursday to the Find A Dream kids.

?We are honored to be working with One Punch Fitness,? said Rod Ricciardi, co-founder of Find A Dream. ?Pete Guthy is a class act and the facility is perfect for what we want to bring to Myrtle Beach. Our mission is to provide the local youth with an outlet to learn the basics of boxing while working towards their goals in life.?

In addition to former boxer Don Steele, Find A Dream?s all-star team also includes former Olympic Gold Medalist Ray Mercer, former world champion Bobby Czyz, Hector Camacho Jr., and several other professionals.

On going forward with Find A Dream, Ricciardi continues, ?What we are trying to do is help kids of any age and bring positive influence into their lives. We are trying to do it through boxing, martial arts and music, to instill in them discipline and structure. We know that we are not going to be able to help everybody because they?re going to have to want to help themselves, but even if we can make a small difference, that?s what we are trying to do, with as many people as possible.

Any local youth in Myrtle Beach that are interested in joining Find A Dream?s programs, visit One Punch Fitness at 4036 River Oaks Drive, Suite B4, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, 29579; or visit them online at www.onepunchfitness.com
