Let's get FIT - The boxing edition

Another thing I've been trying to do recently is get fit and live a healthy  lifestyle. Those close to me know how averse i am to the gym or anything exercise related, as such,  my colleagues are always trying to encourage me to get involved in fun exercise activities that would be better suited to me than simply going to the gym.

This week, they managed to persuade me to attend a boxing gym and boy was it FUN. It is definitely not for the faint hearted, because they really work you hard, warm up is like 30 minutes of stretches, squats, push ups, mountain climbing, all sorts and lord knows how much i was aching after warm up alone.

After warming up, you practise boxing, jabs, 1 2s, hooks, foot work, upper body movements etc all of which are working out your muscles in almost every way.....then after this they put you through stomach exercises then warm down, in total, the class lasted for an hour & thirty minutes.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be going back, but right now, i am in a LOT of pain ALL over!!!!
