Q: My friend said you have to be in amazing shape to join a boxing gym. Is that true?
A: The answer is NO. People of all ages and backgrounds join boxing gyms. It doesn’t matter what you look like. If you have the heart to train and enjoy boxing, you will survive in any boxing gym. Don’t worry about excess fat around your body. There are many off-season professional fighters that walk around at “fat-weight” and train alongside the more slender and trim looking boxers. Again, ignore everyone else, just work hard and you’ll be fine.
