I’ve been boxing for over 10 years now. I’ve been trying to box since the day I was born. My goal is to one day box professionally but, for now, I’m just doing it because I love it.
Ever since I can remember, I have been a boxer. Ive been training since I was 4 and have spent the last 9 years of my life training and fighting. My training partners are my family and friends. I train 4 days a week, usually 3 rounds in the gym and the rest at home or the shop. I currently box in the gym and the shop when I’m not training.
I’m not a big fan of physical training, but I use the gym for that when I can. Training makes me hungry and I love how I can eat anything I want. Boxing is about discipline and focus and it’s very difficult to get into a bad rhythm if you’re just sitting there with your legs crossed looking like a zombie. And just like any other sport, it’s easier to knock out an opponent who’s not motivated or has a good plan.
I love boxing, but I hate when people complain about how they can’t go box and I have to work out with a ball peen hammer. I dont need either of those things, I just need to get my mind off of the fact that I can’t get in a fight or do my training, and let the boxing do the work. And I dont mean letting it run away, I mean just letting it do its own thing.
One of the biggest issues in learning how to fight is how to train your legs. When I was a kid, I was supposed to train my legs. The one time I got my legs over my shoulders, it would throw me out of my bed. I didn’t have a lot of strength, but they didn’t have to be on the floor.
Well, thanks to the rise of free weights, we now have a whole slew of gyms around. There are now gyms in every city and town that specialize in lifting weights. One of these gyms is called the “ROCK FITNESS CLUB”. A club that I used to belong to used to have a weight room full of the most ridiculous (and deadly) bodybuilding machines.
So what do you do when you have a gym full of machines that are deadly, but also dangerous as hell? Well, you get into a boxing gym that actually trains people for real fights.
The first time I visited the Rock Fitness Club was a few years ago. I was there to do some yoga and I was in the kitchen. I was looking at a rack of weights and I started looking at the weights. And I started thinking, “Wait, are these things that I’ve seen pictures of?” And I thought, “Well, no. These are all weights that were actually used in the past. These are the weights that are in the gym.
Yeah, yeah, we know that. But it’s because we know that boxing is a sport that’s very much a dangerous sport that we don’t actually want to be in a gym that’s really training people to fight. This is because you might have to have a real fight with a real opponent. If you get into a fight in a gym, then you’ve already lost. That’s not how you do it. That’s not how we’re going to do it.
This is why we’re talking about all of these boxing classes in the first place. This is because there is a very real risk involved when youre doing a boxing class. You will be surrounded by some of the most dangerous people youve ever seen, you will have your nose to the grindstone, and if you hit an opponent, you may very well end up dead. This is why we are talking about these classes in the first place.
