Both male and females alike recognise the benefits of boxing, whether you want to compete or are just trying to get fit. Stepping into a boxing gym for the first time can seem pretty daunting, especially if you are doing it by yourself.
I didn’t take up boxing until I was 22, I wish I would have had the confidence to start earlier; I knew the gym was round the corner from my house but I didn’t walk in until a friend introduced me. So I thought it might be helpful to provide a little bit of advice for surviving your first experiences in a boxing gym
Have a good attitude
Remember you are there to learn, not to show how big and tough you are and how much you want to knock someone out. I personally think that showing that you can listen and learn from what the trainers have to say is one of the most important parts of being taken seriously. This includes being humble, even the guy that has only had one fight will still be able to tell you about his experiences, and you might be able to learn from him.
