Don't get your hopes up and stick with it. Chances are a trainer won't even talk to you the first month. He is busy with other boxers. And alot of the time People come in and want to box are there a week or two and get hit hard or don't want to train hard so they quit for some reason or another. So the trainer won't waste his time on newbies. Best bet is to bust ass your first few weeks and show you really want it. Don't bug him, he'll notice you if you train and stick with it.

You will want to run and do alot of push ups and sit ups and such before going in. When your running practice throwing your arms out and always hold your hands high.

If you find a gym in the inner city you will not need to spend alot of dough, but you will certainly have to fight hard. If you find a gym in the burbs somewhere you will not have to fight as hard but it will cost you plenty.

Somebody had suggested going to a gym and just start working hard from day one with out asking for to much assistance from trainers, best advice I have read in here in a while. Bust your ass and they will notice you and begin working with you in time.

When you step into the gym be a man, leave the child inside of you behind. It is no place for cry babies or people who want things to come easily. Its a place to work hard and grow with in yourself. Dont be surprised if you happen to get your ass handed to you in your first sparring session, this is common. What is not common is for the new guy that just got his ass kicked to show up the next day for another serving, and the next and the next day. Show them that you are strong inside and they will show you how to be strong on the outside.

Best of luck man,

i am only 16, but i have been boxing for about 4-5 years, although i am not as experianced as most other on the site it will probably be good for me to give u some info seeing that i am young like you. you will treally have to bust ur ass the first month to get noticed and always ask questions to the trainer so he knows that you are interested in boxing. if you really want to go somewhere with your boxing you will have to train outside the gym aswell, e.g skipping, daily runs and pushups and situps.
just basic stuff like that will get you going,
work hard and take in everything you are tought
good luck

if your 225 you should probably focus on increasing speed and power rather than strength for the moment unless alot of that is fat then you should do cardio and sort out your diet

17 is not to old...you gotta run and sprint, get your condition up...burn off the fat...and work on technique...soon as you go toa boxing club...all is up to your coach and you...

clubs are usually free or less then 50 bucks a month i suppose

very good advice from all. just a note make sure u know the difference between not demanding attention but also savouring and heeding n e u do get. nothing a trainer loves more than a fast learner.
