So you decided to take up boxing well here is a quick article to get you started with the basics.

A great quote:
"THE FIGHT IS WON OR LOST FAR AWAY FROM WHITNESSES - BEHIND THE LINES, IN THE GYM, AND OUT THERE ON THE ROAD, LONG BEFORE I DANCE UNDER THOSE LIGHTS"
I love to go to the ol boxing gym and train there's nothing else like it, my dad has taken me since I were six years old and I love every minute from training to watching.
If you are starting from scratch on your fitness quest you may want to build up a basic fitness foundation before finding and attending a boxing gym.
So back to the basics don't be getting too fancy too quick as you may find it a great shock, you need to build yourself up and it takes time.
Roadwork aka jogging/running
Hailed as essential to many boxers conditioning roadwork is getting out and jogging. Now not everyone is good at jogging especially to begin with but persistence + consistency will get you there. Build up to doing at least 15 minutes 3 times per week then increase the time in small increments of a minute or 2 as the weeks go. Then when you are up to 45 minutes you have reached a good level and can consider changing your running programme to become more advanced. You will have increased your fitness and feel more confident.
Work your body - utilise bodyweight exercises to become more conditioned and develop bodyweight strength here are a few.
