Participating in BOXING ALLEY'S FIT TO FIGHT CHALLENGE (October 2022)


With a supportive family, safe home, my incredible husband and my brand new precious baby boy I was living my dream - except I wasn't. I was 1 of the 15% of women who have experienced Postnatal Depression and Anxiety after the birth of my gorgeous first born son, and before my beautiful second born.

To feel like you didn't want to be here, yet have everything you could have ever wanted, is one of the most devastating feelings in the world. A time which was incredibly hard - not just for me, but for my family.

It's not a matter of just being grateful and get on with it (something I'm hopeful many New Zealanders are learning more about), there is help and Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Aotearoa (PADA) are one beautiful charity to offer that support, to educate and resource others. It's a challenging time bringing another human into the world and to be living with depression and/or anxiety adds even more.

I am now incredibly healthy and absolutely thriving - this fight is to push me outside of that comfort zone. To remind myself how loving, powerful and strong I am as a woman and to remind YOU that you are too!

My desire is to offer women who may be where I was that there is hope, that they can get well, they can thrive, and to raise funds for PADA ensuring the education, resources and support for these beautiful women is easily accessible.

It's Fight Week baby!   26 September 2022

If you follow me on social media (instagram @joelle_legg) you will have seen the incredibly intense training coach Albie has put us through.

It involved training Friday night/Saturday morning from 12am until 3am, followed by running sand dunes and sparring in the sand VERY early on Sunday morning (ummm what clock change!). All to test and challenge our mental and physical strength - i LOVED it!

This week the intensity continues with sprints, skills and sparring Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night before tapering to more gentle movement and mental preparation ahead of Saturday night.

It's mental health awareness week here in NZ and my youngest son also has his final day at Kindergarten which feels like an end to a chapter which I early on was a very challenging part of my life, I am grateful for all of it because of where I am today. I can not WAIT to step into the ring on Saturday night to celebrate how far I have come and to represent every beautiful woman who may be where I was to remind them how strong, beautiful, and incredibly powerful they are.

The photos are of my team lead by coach Albie Roebeck: 3 of us in this team are participating in the Fit In Fight challenge on Saturday night.
