About

Trainer Garret Garrels didn’t set out to create an empowering fitness movement, but that’s exactly what happened. After training a woman who had been belittled by her previous trainer, Garrels accidentally developed a following—that client’s friends. The women joined Garrels in a Montana soccer field, where they worked on boxing drills and built a community with one another that relied on encouragement and camaraderie. Dubbing it Pink Gloves Boxing, Garrels soon established the fitness program in various cities throughout the U.S. and Europe, keeping the focus on women’s empowerment and raising much-needed funds for breast cancer research along the way. Though his work has helped transform and galvanize women around the world, Garrels remains humble, giving credit to the movement itself. As he says, “I never founded Pink Gloves—Pink Gloves founded me.”
