Gearing up for a BSBC class? Don’t go in blind!

Here’s all you need to know about boxing for the first time.

Top Tips For Beginner Boxers

Is it time for you to throw yourself into the sport? Make a mental note of these tips to help you make the most of your first class!

  • Work with professional coaches. Safety and support are important in the ring, and we only work with the BEST trainers!

  • Invest in premium equipment. Equipment can transform your training, so it’s advised to start your routine with high-quality picks. Need some guidance? We offer gloves and hand wraps at our reception to elevate your training.

  • Pair your technique lessons with cardio. Boxing includes many technical elements, but good cardiovascular health will build your endurance.

  • Combine training with a healthy diet. This isn’t a must, but if you’re serious about getting fit, start making changes in all areas of your life.

  • Accept that you might make mistakes. Boxing is a new skill, so accept that you might not nail each more straight away – and that’s okay!

  • Believe in yourself. Your mindset affects your performance more than you’d expect. So, try to turn up with confidence and an open mind – don’t be your own biggest obstacle.

  • Practice, practice, practice! No one walks into the ring with the skills of a pro (even if they claim they do). Practice is a secret weapon for new boxers.

  • Don’t overtrain. Too much of a good thing might harm your progress. Allow your body to rest after each session, or you might end up paying the price.
