Default My first experience in a boxing gym.

I finally went to a boxing gym. me and a couple friends decided to walk down to check it out tonite . I was soo excited. we walked in , and asked if we cud check it out. the place was deserted due to golden gloves . we wer given a tour of the musty gym (think apollo creeds gym in rocky 3 , but smaller) he first showed us all the equipment, and then told us to try the speed bag lol. none of us hit it more than 3 seconds lol. next he told us to go in the ring and get the feel. alot softer than i thought.
i couldnt believe wat was happening, i had only expected them to giv us a membership form lol. next, he held out the pads and told us combos to hit them , like he shouted " one, two", "two jabs" "gimme 4!" "gimme 6!", my friends didnt really understand the orders., But me i knew, thanks to the ppl on this forum!
last but not least , we wer given registration forms. as we walked out i found i couldnt get rid of the grin that was on my face.

Nice, I should be going sometime this week or when I get back from vacation.(I would have gone a while ago but my mom is being a pain about me going)

Anyways, I'm really excited. I hope that I get to do more besides just watch.

I don't know how your arguments have gone, but tell them that training(excluding sparring) is basically risk-free. Sparring isn't much worse than playing football, in my opinion.

My mom is a little hesitant about me boxing(mostly because of the gym location i think), but the way I see it in 3 months I'll be 18, and in 5 or 6 months I'll be in college, so I can pretty much do whatever I want at that point.

Good luck man, iv had to find a new gym recently since moving house, but its all good since theres a boxing gym about 10 minutes run away from where i work.

They have boxing fitness a 5:30 to 6:30 and then Amateur training from 6:30 on would, so im thinking of joining up there doing the fitness class just to warm up aswell as doing the Amateur class, it all works out nicely for me though its much smaller then the other gym.
