About Boxing Lessons

Boxing, both as a form of exercise or as a hobby, is a great sport for anyone at any skill level. It truly is an activity anyone can pick up. There’s no expectation to go pro with boxing. You can simply use it as a full-body workout that also increases your strength.

Your goals will influence the overall cost of your lessons, such as how long you train for and who you train with. But there are other factors that can cause the cost for your lessons to vary, which are discussed in further detail below.

Considerations For Boxing Training Near Me

Before you lace up your gloves to start your boxing lessons, you’ll want to make sure you are going to enjoy them! Although there is no guarantee you’ll love boxing, you can do a bit of work to sift through the options and find the right instruction. There are a few things you’ll want to consider first. This allows you to select the right instruction to find your perfect lesson structure.

Goals For Your Boxing Training Program

Boxing lessons provide a way for you to reach your goals, no matter what those might be. Setting aside time both to learn and practice a new skill is vital in your journey to reach boxing proficiency.

But first, think about what’s drawn you to boxing. Boxing is a great choice for general fitness, and it’s fun too! A great option for someone looking to incorporate its fitness aspect is boxing personal training.

Then again perhaps you are an amateur boxer looking to improve skills such as endurance, coordination, technique, or punching technique for professional athletics! Lessons help you hone your abilities and prepare you for competitions.

Or you may have heard that boxing is a great way to get fit. Boxing workouts can boost your confidence and are a fun way to relieve stress. Plus, it teaches you important self-defence skills that you can use in case you are ever in a dangerous situation. All of these are great goals that you can achieve with the right boxing lessons.

Keep in mind that when starting a new routine you may need to consider adding in more nutritious options to your meals as well. Plan delicious, energising options for your diet with a local nutritionist to ensure you feel your best for your next boxing class.

Class Size

Most of the time, you will be choosing between private or one to one boxing lessons, or group lessons. Each has its own benefits, such as private lessons offering one-to-one time with your instructor. This is a highly popular type.

Large or small group lessons are also a great choice, especially if you are just starting out. You’ll be able to work on perfecting your new skills with others in the class. With lots of fellow students, there will be a wide range of abilities that you can work with to become an expert at anticipating — or landing — a hit.

Of course, you can also join a small class and really get to know the others learning to box with you. This creates some great relationships and a very enjoyable session!

But did you know that boxing can be a great activity for couples? Not only will you learn something new, you’ll also grow closer as you spend this time together. It’s a unique way to spend date night, so why not give it a try!

Frequency of Lessons

Most boxing lessons are set up for a session running over several weeks. But depending on what your end goal is, this length may vary. You may also find that you love the sport and want to continue indefinitely!

Generally, you’ll want to visit the gym for boxing lessons at least once a week to start. This gives you enough exposure to the teaching with the time to practice what you’ve learned to grow in skill. But you may need to bump up your routine to reach time-sensitive goals, such as preparing for a tournament. Tell your instructor about your goals to work out the best option and schedule together. You can take lessons a few times a week or even as often as every day.  

Time

Boxing lessons are usually about one hour in length. In the beginning, your boxing lessons may feature less time in physical activity, at least while you are learning the proper way to hold your body and hands. Perfecting your technique will take some time, so it’s great to have the time to work through it without rushing. Your instructor will be able to watch you to correct any mistakes so you learn properly.

If you think an hour isn’t enough time, wait until you have your first class. You will work up a sweat in boxing no matter how long you are out there! But if you still aren’t satisfied, you can speak with your instructor to create a custom lesson plan that is as long — or as short — as you need.  

Boxing Trainer’s Experience

You’ll want to ensure the person leading your lessons is trained and qualified. But what are you looking for?

First, check that your instructor is registered as a boxing trainer and has achieved training levels by taking courses and classes to prepare them for teaching. This ensures that the quality of instruction you receive is up to standards and correct. You may also wish to check that they are certified and suitable to work as a teacher.

Some boxing instructors have even competed professionally! They may operate out of a boxing gym and are teaching as they gain their qualifications. This is a great way to work with someone and gain the benefit of their knowledge.

Student’s Experience

No experience? No problem! Boxing for beginners is a perfect choice to learning how to box, no matter where you are starting from. An experienced instructor can teach you boxing basics, such as proper posture and the correct way to hold your hands. This is an easy way to learn technique while doing boxing exercises.

You’ll also benefit from lessons even if you already have some idea of what to do inside the ring. So whether you’ve had one or two years of experience or more, honing your skills is still important.

Make sure to advise your boxing coach of any experience. This turns your lessons into the perfect fit, challenging you and allowing your skills to grow.

Location - In-Person, at a Boxing Gym, or Online Boxing

Picture your perfect boxing lesson. Are you in the comfort of your own home in a space like your garage, basement, or a spare room dedicated to the pursuit of fitness? Perhaps you see yourself going to a boxing studio to take advantage of the range of equipment, such as heavy bags and strike pads. This is a great choice for training in group lessons.

You can also choose a gym to transition from your boxing class to machines and equipment to help you work out the rest of your body.  This can be handy if you are working with a local personal trainer as well. You can arrange training sessions to accompany your lessons for overall fitness.

Do you prefer to train at home? Then online boxing lessons are the perfect option. Boxing training online is a convenient way to learn boxing techniques and try out boxing at home with professional instruction. Boxing training at home is also a great option if you don't have a gym nearby as this can save you time commuting which you can then focus on training.

Knowing where you want to train will help you choose the right type of instruction. Keep in mind that having a boxing instructor come to your location may cost a little more because of travel considerations. It is more convenient for you, so it may be worth it!
