Published on May 16 2014


A documentary that features a Brock professor has already punched above its weight at an American film festival.

Outside the Ring is a 28-minute documentary about the Shape Your Life boxing program at the Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, the only boxing gym in Canada that is owned and operated by a woman. The documentary was screened at the Shadow Box Film Fest in New York City, where it was a finalist in the Best Short category.

Cathy van Ingen, an associate professor in the Brock kinesiology program, was instrumental in starting the Shape Your Life program in 2007, and she figures prominently in the documentary.
