    The Pacific Beach resident works as a trainer, has a background in art and also happens to be a two-time U.S. Boxing Champion who is hoping to make the 2016 U.S. Olympic Boxing Team.

    So when Wolf was asked to be part of The Body, she said thought it would be an amazing experience and an awesome opportunity.

    “I never thought I would do something like that but it’s a very tasteful magazine,” she explained.

    She shared a sneak peek of her image on her Facebook page Monday.

    Wolf appears in boxing stance captured in a black and white image with the caption, “"Boxing is like a blank canvas for me. I see it very much like my artwork. With a painting, it's what you put into it -- throwing all the paint on the canvas was eating healthy, strength training, cardio and going to all the tournaments. So when you're done, you get to stand back and look at your masterpiece and say, 'Wow, I did that.’”

    There was one thing unexpected about the shoot - the atmosphere on set.

    “Didn’t think that the staff would be 30 guys on the set,” she added. “It was a pretty interesting experience.”
