When you first start training in a boxing gym you're naturally self conscious because you don't want to look like an amateur or beginner or whatever. My advice: just keep practicing until you're comfortable and eventually forget about everyone else..

make sure you don't shadowbox just to look good though, it's easily done and not useful, make sure you're practising the things you're NOT good at, **** what anyone thinks, you're there to practise.

^good advice. Just stay with it until you get better and more confident. Your time in the gym is going to constantly test you and overcoming shyness is one of the easiest tests you're going to face.

just remember that everyone in that gym started out like you did, making mistakes and learning, yes maybe some did faster than others but w.e. remeber aswell if you want them to stop "laughing"(pretending that they are) there going to laugh even more if you quit, so you can practice, get better, assume they're laughing at you and then get better, or quit and let them laugh harder. and lastly if they're laughing at you, who gives a ****. it only effects you if you let them. i remember i was shadow boxing once, doing something completly wrong( my right hand wasnt covering my face when it came back from a straight shot, and i was doing that for about 10 minutes till i realized, i just shrug it off and started doing it right) just remember that its just there thoughts, and can only effect you if you let them



plus if they actually are laughing at you and you know they are that should motivate u to proove them wrong

For most of us in similar types of situations, its probably more in our heads than the reality. Sure everyone checks out the new guy, makes a quick assessment of their skills and unless you are really good, really bad, or doing things that purposely bring attention to yourself, most of the others in the gym will stop thinking about you after a couple of seconds.

The caveat to the rule... you are a female and really hot.
