And of course, for many, it has been an extremely difficult and challenging period over the past three years dealing with the full impact of the COVID pandemic that has affected everybody’s bottom line.
The fitness industry was one of the hardest hit ones during the health crisis with lockdowns shutting down businesses for extended periods of time. Many didn’t survive.
Chen, formerly in the oil and gas industry, founded Rumble Boxing Studio in 2016, and it’s seen rapid growth since then.
In fact, the now widely popular boutique fitness studio where FightClub meets NightClub is slated to open its doors in Yorkville, Toronto on March 18, marking its fifth studio in Canada.
“I graduated from the University of Calgary expecting to build a career in oil and gas, but I quickly realized that a 9 to 5 corporate job wasn’t going to fulfill me in the way I needed,” says Cissy Chen, founder and CEO of Rumble Boxing Studio. “At the same time, I started enjoying spin as a fitness routine, and it sparked an idea: if people can ride to the music, why can’t they box to the beat?”
In this video interview, Chen discusses the concept of her business, how she toughed it out during the pandemic and the company’s plans for growth.
