In our world, a woman is the embodiment of beauty, but there are exceptions like the award-winning, self-motivated and very strong-minded women such as, for example, Laila Ali.
Laila’s father was, actually, against the idea that his daughter would follow his career.
Every her day Laila began with three-kilometer run and a two-hour strength training in the gym. But in spite of the tenacity and “iron” will of the girl, her father was skeptical about the decision of the daughter to become a boxer.
It took several months to change his attitude and to persuade Mohammed to train the daughter. All summer 1997 Ali spent on her father’s villa in Michigan training under his leadership. And after 2 years was held the first Laila’s fight in the status of a professional boxer.
Laila has completed her career undefeated. In total, she held 24 fight, 21 of which ended by knockout (in the other three cases, victory was recognized by the judges decision). Ali became a real triumph, winning all the major boxing titles (IBA, WBC, IWBF and WIBA) and destroying perennial stereotype that box is not for women. Laila Ali became a role model for many female boxers.
According to Laila’s confession, her father never lectured and moralized her, because he believed that the most effective way of upbringing is your own example. Therefore, Laila believes that the best way of influence is to lead a healthy lifestyle and to exercise, rather than try to force children and teach nutrition and physical education. Ali says that this method gives the fruit: her children eat only fruit for the dessert an instead of any sweets. Besides, more often they join celeb mom while she is doing morning exercises.
