Muay Thai Champion. Kiwi Goddess. 7Seas Roasting Co. Ambassador.
Rumor has it the producers of Wonder Woman asked Genah Fabian to play the starring role, but she was too busy training for fight day.
Her career began like many successful stories do: an accident. A hamstring tear that ended a track career led her to try Muay Thai for fun and fitness on a trip to Thailand. She was hooked. Every day, she’d show up to train and one coach took notice. He asked Genah to fight...with three days notice.
And fighting in Thailand is serious business. No shin guards. No helmets. Remember that movie, Kickboxer? Yeah, it’s like that. But with a real fighter.
To all the young fighters out there, Genah has a message for you: “If I can do it, believe me, so many people can! I'm not special, you know? I'm no different... I didn't come from a rich family.... I just always had a really relentless work ethic and belief and desire.” This message coming, of course, from one known as AKA Thailand’s “Alpha Female”.
It's time to kick a** and chew bubblegum, and Genah’s all out of bubblegum.
Caffeinate. Train. Conquer. Repeat.
