My commute to and from work is around 60 miles round trip, most of it highway, and then there are the miscellaneous errands and weekend trips … I spend a lot of quality time behind the wheel.

I had pretty much given up on trying to incorporate regular cardio boxing into my routines, but then I got to test the Quiet Punch. And now I’m in love.
