Kirsten Eby Dzavashvili
My passion for sport started very early in life. When I was seven years old, I joined Prince Rupert Amateur Swim Club. At an early age, I enjoyed quite a bit of success. I was provincial age-group champion for 10 and under, 11 and 12, and then 13 and 14 year old girls. I held the provincial age-group record in 200 meter back and this record wasn’t broken for almost 15 years. I was also ranked number one in Canada in 100 meter and 200 meter backstroke in age-group standings and was on the Olympic tracking program. In 1993, I was awarded the Prince Rupert Athlete of the year. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury cut my swimming career short.
While at the University of British Columbia, I competed in several sprint triathlons and participated in as many sporting events I could get my hands on. I rowed on the university recreation team and was on a winning team for Storm the Wall, one of the largest intramural events in North America. I also played on the women’s varsity rugby team.
After finishing university, I was constantly searching for a sport I could play that would inspire a desire to play hard again. Two years ago, I joined Sugar Ray’s Boxing gym in Vancouver. I immediately fell in love with the sport. I was so impressed with the fitness level and technique required to be a good boxer. I started boxing daily and have made it a part of my life ever since.
What we believe:
We believe that everyone has the chance to become physically fit and change their lives in the process. Most important, the atmosphere in the gym should not be boring but should reflect one of an energized spirit. Working out should be something you look forward to and get excited about not something you dread.
