I tried out a local boxing gym, Title Boxing Club McKinney, and boy was it a blast! One of the hardest classes but also one of the most fun.
We started with a warm up and that alone really got your heart pumping and the sweat flowing. Next was 8 rounds with the bag including calisthenics in between, ending with abs and stretch. Does it sound easy? Well it wasn’t!
It was my first class with the gloves and my hands didn’t really enjoy being confined that long. I found myself wanting to take the gloves off and stretch my fingers. I didn’t but I really felt relief when we took them off for the abs. I believe over time my hands will adjust just like with anything else. It was also surprising to me how much it took to move the bag, that isn’t the goal, but realizing the force behind a punch to move a 100 lb bag is more than you think. FORM is much more important!
Anthony taught the class and he was wonderful. I really like that he noticed each person in the class and gave individual notes to each person to make sure the form and combination was correct. It is hard for me to fully understand just hearing over the microphone, especially with the music too. I really like to be able to see a demo first so I can make sure I am processing it correctly. I was positioned in a great place to be able to see him which really helped. They also taught me how to wrap my hands and assisted with everyone who had questions. The team was very concerned that each and every student in class had proper equipment, form and got a great workout for every different level. Each class is open to all levels and modifications are available to meet all needs. Don’t be shy and head on over.
Every person from the front desk, instructor and owner were welcoming, educational and personable. Don’t miss trying this great workout and your first class is free! I can’t wait to go back. Their website below has their class schedule and videos about what to expect.
