When Laila Ali decided to pursue boxing at age 18, her father Muhammad Ali was not happy that she was choosing such a dangerous career. However, Laila took after her father more than he realized. During her career, Laila held four different super middleweight titles along with the IWBF light heavyweight title. She was undefeated in her 24 matches with 21 wins coming via knockout. Now, she is considered as the most successful female in the history of women’s boxing.

In addition to her success in the ring, Laila has been a trailblazer for women’s rights in sports and continues to encourage young women to be confident, healthy, and strong through the power of sport. She formerly served as President of the Women’s Sports Foundation and was a major voice during the 40th anniversary of Title IX.

Reach! Finding Strength, Spirit and Personal Power Book Cover


Reach! Finding Strength, Spirit and Personal Power

Combining a gripping personal story with practical advice on such subjects as diet, training, family, romance, and much more, Laila Ali shows readers of all ages and backgrounds how to transform the demons of self-doubt and stagnation into positive, winning energy. In fifteen straight-talking, hard-hitting “rounds,” Laila offers her dynamic formula for physical, emotional, and mental power, demonstrating how to sidestep feelings of self-pity and defeatism.Born with a proverbial silver spoon in her mouth, Laila never felt comfortable as a child. In her parents’ mansion – surrounded by maids, celebrity visitors, and hangers-on – she longed for a “normal” existence. As an adolescent, she became increasingly drawn into negative behavior. But after she found herself, at age sixteen, in juvenile hall, Laila realized it was time to make a change in her life. She resolved to become a responsible, financially independent adult, and soon achieved her long-time dream of owning her own manicure business. Ultimately, however, she would find success in another arena: professional boxing.
