Everything You Need to Know Before Starting Boxing Classes with a Boxing Instructor

Boxing is a physical, athletic, and psychological sport. There are a lot of things you’ll need to know about before you start: the types of boxing gloves, the ring, training with a punching bag, hooks, uppercuts, and jabs, for example. 

Boxing is a sport that has allowed men and women in boxing clubs all over the country to get together to practise this unique sport.

Why Take Boxing Lessons

Boxing is now a key part of staying fit and not just for bodybuilders. It’s a sport where you learn discipline. Boxing is also famous for its discipline and being one of the hardest sports in the world.

This reputations has led to the creation of hybrid sports like Shadow Boxing and Cross boxing, a cross between boxing and cross fit. These are becoming quite popular in gyms across the country.

What’s the goal?

You box either on your own or against a punching bag or speed bag. You don’t have an opponent that’ll punch you back. This helps aspiring boxers to gain muscular definition very quickly!

Boxing: A Complete Sport

We often say that boxers are all-round athletes. They do so much more than just working on their punches, their jabs, and hooks, they also:

  • Work on their endurance and cardio so that they go 8, 10, or 12 rounds in the ring;
  • Work on their legs so that they can effectively move round the ring like Sugar Ray Robinson;
  • Work on their abs so that they can take heavy punches to the body and also dodge quickly;
  • Work on their upper body, shoulders, and arms so that they can throw powerful punches.
