For many, conventional gym training approaches have become unappealing with many people dropping out of their exercise routines through boredom or lack of motivation. Boxing has become increasingly popular as a sport and as a way of getting into shape and keeping fit. It’s great for making exercise interesting and fun and for helping people maintain their commitment.
I have the experience to train people at any level whether it be beginner, white collar or professional. I aim to make sure that the technique and ‘art’ of boxing isn’t lost in a flurry of punches and ensure you gain the necessary skills to perform efficiently but with maximum effect. I use a huge mixture of techniques and equipment you would find in any professional boxing gym. This includes punch bags, floor to ceiling balls and spar bars, as well as punch tracker technology that measures speed, intensity and shots thrown which can be tracked to measure ongoing improvement. Footwork drills and learning how to skip will be key to even the most novice clients wishing to learn my favourite sport.
SO WHY HAS BOXING TRAINING BECOME SO POPULAR?
Boxing comprises various styles and combinations which means it’s difficult to get bored of it. There is no comparison between three rounds of intense boxing training and running on a treadmill for 10 minutes.
Boxing can be learnt at all different levels from beginner to advanced. Your training programme is pitched at your particular level of skill and fitness, so you would not be expected to be able to box ten rounds the first time you try it!
Boxing not only challenges your cardio-vascular system but is also superb for weight loss and developing co-ordination, speed, agility, power, stamina, muscle tone and of course the core.
It’s one of the best ways to keep fit and stay in good shape. Many of my clients aim to progress to white collar boxing and everyone I have trained for this has gone on to be very successful. So why not give it a try? Not just for competing in the sport but to make keeping fit and coming to the gym as enjoyable as it can be.
