Tired of your Monday evening yoga class? Sick of your Sunday morning walk? This week in body+soul, we meet the women who have added some kick to their fitness regime — quite literally — by entering the world of combat sports.

These Aussie female fighters are smashing gender stereotypes and proving that ‘fighting like a girl’ is actually pretty impressive.

Boxer Lauryn Eagle tells us about getting knocked down — physically and emotionally — and how she deals with criticism. Muay Thai champion Melissa Anderson chats about how she balances fighting with her full-time real estate job and how fighting affects her relationships.

We also speak to 37-year-old UFC fighter Alex Chambers about why more mature women are starting to fight, with 18 per cent of professional female fighters in NSW currently aged between 35 and 43.

Age hasn’t stopped these women and for MMA fighter Anna Silver, neither has motherhood. She tells us about her journey from motherhood to the ring, inspiring mothers out there to take up the empowering sport.

If you’re feeling inspired, pro-boxer Ben Savva will show you how to train like a fighter (and you can do it all from home).
