Roxy "Balboa" Richardson
Roxy Muay Thai

Hi I’m Roxy “Balboa” Richardson ACE CPT, SFG II, FDN-P.

I earned the nickname “Balboa” from battling in the ring for 10 years in the sport I love, Muay Thai.

I retired from professional fighting in 2011 and today I run my gym Function 5 Fitness in Los Angeles, CA where I am the head Muay Thai Coach, an SFG Kettlebell Coach and a Nutritional Counselor.

I started Lift Fight Love as a community where I could help inspire, motivate and educate others to find strength in their training and their lives. My goal is to promote the sport of Muay Thai and the benefits of strength training, give back to the world and always keep a positive, mind, body and spirit.

Unrelated to fitness, I am also crazy about cats, coffee and creative writing. I enjoy a well made old fashioned and I listen to deep house music when I’m writing.
