As a spokesperson for Everlast, Cary created a boxing class format for 24 Hour group fitness called Everlast ShadowBox.

Community involvement includes creating the annual Black Tie & Boxing Benefit that not only benefits the non-profit Prime Time Boxing Club training scholarship program, but also has benefited Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other foundations. As a professional boxing promoter in California, Cary put on professional boxing at Raley Field baseball stadium, which was the first time the stadium allowed a boxing venue.
Cary founded the “Knocking Out Obesity” tour which stopped at 10 of the “fattest” cities in the nation (according to Men’s Fitness). Cary conducted non-contact boxing workouts with students at 10 middle schools in the nation. The principals, teachers and students of each of these schools were excited that their school had been chosen as a stop on the tour and asked to be on the list for the following years. Subway was the “lunch time” sponsor at 4 of 10 cities stopped at. The only way to create awareness is to get out there in the communities and that is what the tour is all about.
