In the world of athletics, team sports are far and away the most popular. Most likely you or a friend, or someone you know, played football or baseball in high school. But do you know anyone who boxed? It’s doubtful. Boxing is often seen a lone wolf sport, regulated to seedy gyms in the shifty part of town. And if a person doesn’t want to compete, why box?
More’s the pity. It’s regrettable they are missing out on one of the most enjoyable and engaging sports there are, with a rich history stretching back to the Roman era, if not before. Many Roman boxers are immortalized in stone. How likely is it that statues of Mike Tyson will be around 2,000 years from now?
The day of the outdated, dark and seedy gym, so common in the movies, is long gone. Modern gyms, like the Lab MMA, are large and bright, with plenty of room to practice. The instructors are in shape, and probably are former pro’s. Rocky wouldn’t even know what to do in a gym these days.
Whether you plan to compete or not is really not important. More people who box stay OUT of the ring than the number who go in it. Just like kickboxing and jiu jitsu, boxing is a great way to stay fit and have fun while boosting self-confidence and learning a skill.
Boxing will get you in shape. It will get you toned up. And, it will give you a little (or big) ego boost. Learning a new skill, especially a martial art, tends to have a flattering effect on one’s ego. No matter why you want to box, don’t hesitate. It is an extremely worthwhile endeavor that WILL help you feel better and help fulfill your commitment to fitness.
