Physical Stretch Quest

Time: Sunday, January 14 - 10am

Place: Panther Gym, Edmonton

Started the new year strong, by crushing the first of twenty 2018 goals: hit a boxing class (pun intended).

For this stretch quest I had no idea what to expect. I walked down the stairs into the gym, ready for a completely new experience. All I knew about the Panther Gym Sunday boxing class before I went, was what I had seen in the digital space of Instagram. The interface allowed for social interaction, photos, and videos. Even though this was far from my comfort zone - it had a feeling of familiar. I had seen photographs and stories from this place over the past few months, so in a way, Instagram had allowed me to visualize this place in my head before physically being there. Seeing it in person allowed me to fill in the true details. 

Comfort level: 5 3
