    Hey all,

    Not that anyone was waiting anxiously to hear this, but...
    I started boxing about a month ago. Found an old-school style gym less than 2 miles from my place. Not an MMA gym, not a cardio thing - they do straight-up boxing. Head coach is totally Mickey from Rocky. lol

    I hate it and love it. It's embarrassing being such a newbie and feeling so clumsy, but I f'n love going anyway. It feels great.

    Anyway, this is something I have wanted to do forever, and I am so glad I am finally doing it. I had mentioned this on the forums a few times before, and I just wanted to tell y'all that I am doing it.

    Congratulations on taking the first step. Now you just have to stick with it. Even on those days when you don't feel like going in to train. They will be some of the best days as the feeling of exhilaration and accomplishment overcomes you.
    Make sure to buy some quality gear to train in and not that store bought crap as you want boxing gloves and shoes that will last you during you most difficult workouts.

    Here's to becoming a contender or rather a Master's Boxer
    Keep your guard and come out punching.
    Peace!
