Jacqui Bergmann had a lot to contend with—a divorce, depression, and a two-packs-a-day smoking habit. As she drove her son to the gym, she wondered what she should do to turn her life around. As it turns out, the answer was at the gym. Watching her son take a boxing lesson, Jacqui decided she wanted to give it a try. She traded her cigarettes for boxing gloves and felt her negative thoughts fade away to be replaced by a sense of confidence and empowerment.
Today, as owner of Glove Game Boxing, Jacqui gives guests this same feeling of empowerment through 30- and 60-minute boxing classes. Her team of trainers holds group and one-on-one lessons for men and women of all ability levels and goals, whether they just want to get in shape or to compete in amateur or professional circuits. They teach the same exercises used to drill the gym's pro pugilists—students learn about punching combinations, for example, and the importance of throwing at the X on King Hippo's stomach. The trainers emphasize proper form and technique so participants get the most out of each workout while minimizing the chance of injury. They also offer special training packages, including parent-child, postbaby, and wedding-day-countdown boot camps. To keep clients focused on the training and not the paperwork, Jacqui forgoes things such as long-term contracts and membership fees.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
Helping people discover the benefits of IV vitamin drips and how they can feel great using natural alternatives. We tend to think of our health in terms of "being sick" versus "feeling great." We chat with our patients while they get their drips. We love helping people see their health from a different point of view; that a state of wellness is where are bodies naturally want to be.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I've always had an interest in naturopathic medicine, and after working with patients several years ago with vitamin injections and the Myer's Cocktail I was amazed to see how many of them reported feeling great and how many kept coming back week after week for their vitamin injections. I started exploring how to make health and wellness the main focus for patients, and The Drip Room was born.

The main treatment areas has a very social atmosphere, and we also have a separate lounge for those who might like a more quiet experience.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The inspiration for The Drip Room was to bring awareness of the benefits IV vitamin drips and make it easy and accessible for the general public. Our patients are seen by doctors and nurses, and they don't have wait for appointments or pay office visits or consultation fees. It's all included.
