This Fierce Trainer Is Blending Ballet With Boxing

If anyone’s ever said you weren’t good enough to reach your goals, you’re not alone. Once a young ballerina in training, boxing fanatic Julie “Jaws” Nelson was consistently told she just didn’t have what it took to dance alongside the best. That’s when she decided to make a turn. Using her fine-tuned discipline and natural artistic technique, she now fuses her two passions together to cross-train and shine in the boxing ring. Watch the video above to see how her setbacks motivate her to keep moving forward.

We’ve partnered with adidas Training to show that the possibilities are endless when you work hard and push yourself.
