Through the practice of boxing, Carla Wilcox coaches people through their perceived limitations. Working with body, mind, and spirit, she guides them on the journey to becoming their best selves. The road to becoming a professional boxer was an indirect one for Carla. A member of the Snohomish Tribe, Carla grew up on the Spokane and Wellpinit Indian Reservations in Eastern Washington. Athletics played an important part of her life on the reservation. Carla took the lessons she learned from her coaches and mentors to Seattle, where she opened the BQ Workout Gym in the Broadway Market in the early 90s. There, she worked as a personal trainer, giving classes on circuit training, power lifting, and general fitness. Boxing found her as a young adult. She fought for six years as an amateur and six years as a pro, competing for the superflyweight world title in Korea in 2004. Today, she owns the Wilcox Boxing Studio, where she translates her collected life exeriences into modern wisdom of the spirit, helping her clients become a "vision of perfection at the top of their game."

TEDxRainier is an independently produced TED event held in Seattle, Washington
