WHY I FIGHT | JESSIE GOLD
What’s your name, where are you from, and what do you do?
Hey there! My name is Jessie Gold. I am from California and I am a Product Manager at a software company in downtown Boston. I am also a self-appointed community dog petter and an amateur cheese and wine connoisseur.
What makes you a fighter?
I am a fighter because I won’t accept defeat for myself or for those I love. Challenges aren’t to be feared, they are to be accepted and crushed!
What do you fight for?
I fight to be mentally, spiritually and physically my best self! And for those around me that give me the strength, drive and courage to do so everyday.

The amazing people around me.
If you could fight side-by-side with one person, past or present, who would it be?
Abraham Lincoln! Okay.. well maybe not in the ring but I have always been so fond of his drive and fight to do what was right against all odds. It is something I try to keep in mind in everyday life and everyday fights.

What’s your favorite EverybodyFights class?
BAGSxBEATS hands down! It is challenging, fun and the perfect combination of technique, rhythm and musicality.
Who is your favorite EverybodyFights Trainer, and why?
Oh geez… I LOVE THEM ALL! But seriously, that is why EBF is so amazing. Every trainer and member shows up everyday with the same humble, encouraging and unstoppable mindset and that passion and energy is contagious.
How do you Fight It Forward?
I try to fight it forward in the small, everyday stuff. A smile or kind word to a stranger can go a long way.
