What to expect when you walk into a boxing gym?

Are you terrified of walking into a Boxing Gym or joining a boxing training class? Does your fear gets magnified when you think that someone is going to punch you in face? No worry! Most of us aren’t bred for combat. People join boxing classes for variety of reasons and goals. Some join the sport as a tool for fitness, some come for self-defence, and some come with aspirations to compete. Every aspiring fighter looks for a place to train. Let’s find out what to expect when joining a Boxing gym in Sydney for the first time.

Three Kinds of boxing Clubs or Gyms that boost your confidence and make it an enjoyable experience

  • The Hardcore fight clubs

The most unnerving kinds of gyms you should join, if becoming a boxing champion is your goal. If you want to learn the actual art of how to fight and compete then you need a place like this. You will often find fierce competition among budding boxers who are striving for the trainer’s attention with the hope of becoming aces in Boxing.

  • The Fitness clubs

These clubs are meant for those who want to get in shape. The trainers are more focused on keeping you moving to burn calories and far less concerned with technique. Rare is the possibility that you’d spar with anyone in place like this.

  • The hybrid clubs

These are the clubs perfect for those who aspire to compete and get fit. The coaches here train fighters and run fitness classes. Interestingly, there are far more enthusiasts of getting in shape than there are in learning how.

When you walk into a boxing club, either hybrid or hardcore, you’ll find people looking all mean and nasty. Your boxing coach will possibly get you to sign in a wavier releasing themselves of liability if you happen to get hurt. You are also required to submit medical release form and an application to join the amateur boxing association in your location to compete.

A typical Boxing class might resemble:

  • 3 rounds of jump rope or skipping
  • Wrap up (Put on your hand wraps)
  • 3 rounds of shadowboxing
  • Glove up (put on your bag gloves)
  • Around 12 rounds of heavy bag work
  • 2-3 rounds of body weight exercise
  • Cool down including some ab work


On a final note

The more dedicated you are, the quicker you learn. The trainers and coaches in the boxing clubs look for fighters with potential to win. So, the more heart you show the more time you are likely to win from trainers.
