Adidas Women's Meet The Creators celebrates women from around the world who are changing the game. Recently, Adidas featured Liz Q. Parr, a Los Angeles-based trainer and owner of Guvnor’s Boxing Club in Long Beach, California, who is the definition of a boss. Parr's story is similar to anyone who is a first generation American. While Liz was not the greatest when it came to school, she was phenomenal in the boxing ring. Parr's father mentioned in the video that Liz was set on making it to the Olympics but the year she was supposed to make it, a notice came that they weren't accepting women that year. This didn’t stop Liz from fighting professionally, then move onto training and finally opening up her very own gym. Check out Liz Q. Parr’s feature on Adidas Women's YouTube channel below:Working out is beneficial and can be fun as well.
