357: Bullying and anxiety to America’s #1 Heavyweight Boxer with Cam F Awesome

Cam F Awesome is a Keynote Speaker, Diversity Consultant, Event Emcee, and a multi-time National Champion Heavyweight Olympic boxer. As a motivational speaker, Cam shares lessons he’s learned traveling to 30+ countries as Captain of Team USA. Cam’s Olympic journey was featured in the NETFLIX Original Documentary, COUNTERPUNCH!

Growing up, Cam dealt with academic and social challenges. Bullying and anxiety led him to join a boxing gym to protect himself. Cam had tried out but was unable to make any teams he tried out for. Boxing was the only available choice since no team had to be made.

Cam quickly fell in love with the sport. He realized his potential to be great and dedicated every waking moment to be the best boxer possible. Cam’s mental toughness served as his superpower in the ring. Within 2 years in the sport in 2008, Cam won the National Championship claiming the title as the #1 Super Heavyweight boxer in the country.

Cam holds 4 Golden Gloves Championships, 6 US Championships, 3 PAL National Championships, 6 Ringside Championships, and 3 Olympic Trials. Cam holds the title as the Winningest Boxer in USA Boxing history. Cam’s accomplishments are impressive but pale in comparison to the losses he has accumulated to reach this point.

During his motivational speeches he shares how he faced adversities in and outside of the ring with a Championship Mindset. Boxing is the greatest metaphor because everyone is fighting their own battles.
