RI man to share inspirational story on Steve Harvey Monday

(WPRI) — A Pawtucket man that took some big advice from Steve Harvey will be on the “Steve Harvey Show” Monday.

Richard Gringas is a former heavy weight champion of New England and the owner of Fight to Fitness. Through his many struggles he said he learned to box.

After he retired, Gringas was inspired by the first he ever finished reading, Steve Harvey’s book, “Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success.”

Gringas opened his own gym and after working closely with a man suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, now coaches more than 70 members of his gym who have Parkinson’s through a program called “Rock Steady Boxing.”

You can watch Richard Gringas as he sits down with Steve Harvey Monday, February 1, at 4 p.m. on FOX Providence.
