Christina Cruz, the US Olympic Boxer, Trains with the Robot for Martial Arts

Christina is a Bantamweight style Boxer ranked #1 for the US Olympic Boxing team, as well as a two time world medalist.

My story is a little different than of a typical boxer. I started boxing at the age of 22. Most boxers start at the age of 8 competing. I came into the sport really late — a friend introduced me to a boxing gym, and I fell in love with it like the second I walked in there. But growing up I was a tomboy, so I was really athletic, I was the schoolyard champion.

I didn't believe how quick it was. When I saw the videos, I was like — no, it can't be that quick, it can't be faster than I am. But then, getting on it, — it's really quick, it's smart, and it made me work just letting you know if you're punching hard enough, letting you know if you're throwing the punch correctly.

The reason why I like the Drills mode so much because it's correcting you and it's allowing you to take that step back and do it correctly rather than just keep on going forward and not improving.

Sometimes when working on the heavy bag, it doesn't feel as real as the actual thing. But this pretty simulates somebody's head, especially the way it pops back. It's good!
