Default Problem going to the gym.

So basically, the gym I want to go to is, as my mom puts it, "In a bad area"

She's said she doesn't me to go down there, then she said she didn't want me down there by myself, and then she said she didn't want me down there after dark. Now, there ARE other gyms I could go to, but for some reason, this is the one that I want to go to. For anyone at all familiar with Cincinnati gyms, the one at the very bottom(Queen City Boxing Club) is the one I wish to go to.

If I don't go to this gym, I would probably go to Mt Auburn PAL or the Millvale PAL.

Now, all 3 of these gyms are about 20 minutes from my house. I'm not really scared of going to the gym in the "bad area" but like I said before, my mom is kind of paranoid.

What should I do? Suck it up and go to a gym where there's not as many black people?(That's basically why my mom doesn't me to go to Queen City Boxing) Or should I keep trying to go to the gym that I want to go to?

Is anyone here familiar with any of these gyms?

I agree, a tough gym is better.

Except if it's just a place where a bunch of idots go to hit ****. Then you won't learn anything. But if it's actually a boxing gym, and everyone's there to box, than go for it.

Just don't go to a gym full of wild mother****ers thinking it will make you tough. Maybe it will, but you won't learn a whole lot if all that happens is you get in a ring and get pounded.

I want to, that's what I have my heart set on, but my mom doesn't like the idea.

Also, I don't know what the atmosphere is like down there. I wanted to go down there last week just to check everything out, but like I said, my mom didn't want me to.

I mean obviously if it's just a bad gym, I wouldn't want to go there, but I haven't even had a chance to see what it's like.

Dude maybe you should sit down and have a chat with her even take her there because if u really want to take this sport seriously u need to go there and check it out. It may not be that good but if its better than the others thats where you need to go your mum needs to understand this i what u want
