Happy Friday! We made it through the week:) Since it is now February I have officially finished my month of boxing at Title Boxing and will be moving onto a new workout routine. Today I will be breaking down my experience with boxing and whether or not I would recommend you try it. At the end of this post, I will also announce February’s Fit Fridays Challenge so keep reading!
For Fit Fridays the goal of the challenge is to attend class three times a week for the entire month or a total of 12 classes. January started off great and I had no problems attending classes three times a week. I honestly loved the classes because it was a great workout plus every time I left I felt so accomplished to have made it through another class. I also felt like I was improving as I took more classes. Most classes I had the same instructor because I like to create a routine so I went at the same times each week. The instructor was pretty cool and I liked her style, however, she rarely corrected people (I promise I made a ton of mistakes to correct). I think it would have been nice to have slightly more feedback on things like form and technique. I did take one class with another instructor on a Saturday and his style was a complete 180. His class was very intense and there were many times I felt like dying. He focused more on technique for the first half of the class and gave feedback before moving into combinations. There was also one class where another instructor was floating around and engaged each of us one-on-one for a full 3 minute round. I worked on my jabs and crosses with him off to the side and after I felt so much more confident in myself. I would not say I am particularly stronger or in better shape after boxing but I had a lot of fun.
Overall, I truly enjoyed boxing at Title Boxing. I think it would be beneficial to have more one-on-one instruction to learn the basics and technique more thoroughly. They do offer private sessions with a trainer but I am unaware of how much those cost per session. Towards, the end of January I did get into a week-long funk where I had absolutely no motivation to do anything, especially get up at 5am to go box. That week was followed by a huge week-long snowstorm that made driving dangerous and businesses close. So January was a slight bust because I barely got half the amount of classes I originally set out for, however, I can see myself going back to Title Boxing again. I highly recommend giving it a try at least once in your life:)
With January wrapped up, it is time to announce February’s workout!! For the month of February, I will be complete 3 workouts a week at OrangeTheory Fitness! Check back next Friday for an update on my first week at OrangeTheory. Leave a comment below on what type of fitness class I should try next!
