Training for life


Steel Curtain Boxing and Fitness, which recently opened at 905 Warwick Ave., is a gym where values and direction are more important than just getting into the ring. “Not everyone is going to be a champion and we are more concerned with the education and well being of our young members moving forward in life,” says owner Steve Reid. Growing up misdirected and with childhood trauma along with substance abuse in life, Reid is able to identify some of his members who may be in crisis due to working in mental health and substance abuse at one time. “I’m blessed to work with this community and continue to make it stronger,” he said.
