Who is the boxer/fighter in one of last year's Gatorade commercials?

Does anybody know the name of the woman working the heavy bag in this commercial? Is she a big deal in the fighting world, or just someone Gatorade wanted to use in their spot? [more inside]

Does anyone know how I find more women that box or do mma?

I'm working on writing and shooting a story of a female fighter for a film competition. Unfortunately, all the fighters I know, whether in mma or boxing, are all guys. Obviously, women also go to the gyms around me but not that many compete. And my friends weren't close to any female fighters. They offer some insight but I'd rather talk with a woman who has been in the ring or interested in competing amateur or otherwise, so at the very least I don't create a story that rings false. Any ideas about how to get in touch with women who do competitive boxing/mma? [more inside]

Where to watch Mayweather-Pacquiao in Burlington Vermont

I'm going to burlington vermont this weekend for a job interview. I know no one there, and have never been there before. I really want to watch the fight on Saturday night, though. Where should I go to watch the fight and maybe meet a few nice strangers? I have no preference for drinks but good food is always welcome.

What is Apollo Creed's trainer doing?

In the first Rocky movie, just before the fight, we see both Rocky and Apollo being prepped in their respective locker rooms. Rocky is having Vaseline put under his eyes and Apollo is sitting on his bench breathing deeply, with his trainer behind him holding his torso. There is another man (His corner man? A doctor?) sort of squatting in front of Creed with his hands in the vicinity of Creed's waistband. What is this preparation for? What are these guys doing? I've looked at different boxing sites and haven't seen anything helpful.

Help me decide which martial art to pursue.

I think I'd like to take up some kind of martial art for both self-defense and exercise reasons. There are some quizzes online, but I don't really know how to answer a lot of the questions, given that I have never done this kind of thing before. I'm located in Houston, TX so I imagine I have a lot of options. More details on me and my preferences inside. [more inside]

Help me figure out a sustainable exercise and nutrition routine

I used to exercise a lot, generally violent sports like rugby or boxing, but several years ago I got injured and two years ago I got pregnant and I haven't really done much since. I really want to figure out how to get back on the horse -- and while I'm at it eat a little better -- but every time I try to just think about it, the many layers of interacting constraints exhaust me. I'd really appreciate help thinking through these, or ideas about what might work. [more inside]

Help me deal with a bully in an otherwise positive competitive sports environment.

I train in a martial art at a place with an active competitive team, which I am trying to join. The other person there who is my size/skill level and on the competitive team goes very hard with me in sparring and always leaves me injured/bruised to a greater degree than any other student. How can I work around this situation or have a mature and productive confrontation about it, given that I still want to compete so I cannot avoid working with this person 100%? [more inside]

Recommend books on boxing for non-readers.

My nephew is 20. He's starting college again. He doesn't read, so his essays are poorly written. The information is in there, but it is poorly structured, Capital letters appear for no Apparent reason, etc. If he read anything, ever, his writing would improve. But he won't. He likes boxing. Can anyone recommend a boxing book which would entertain him and is simple enough for him to understand ?

Where can I find a great boxing gym for a teenage boy in the South Bay area, SoCal?

My youngest brother is 15 and became interested in boxing recently. So far we have the gear ready and laid down some ground rules (eg no boxing outside the club, keep up grades if want to continue). However, the club he was hoping to get into are not accepting new members and now he's crushed. We're looking for gyms in the Torrance/Lomita/PV/San Pedro. We live towards San Pedro, but my brother's high school is in Torrance. Hopefully there's a gym my brother could ride the bus to. I am also worried about him training with adults as he's quite slight. Any suggestions?
