I made a New Years resolution for me to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone. I’ve been curious about boxing for a long time but never did anything about it, probably because I was scared as it was something I was so unfamiliar with. But one day I woke up and decided not to keep making excuses. This is when I started Google searching for places and Box it Out seemed like the best fit for me.
I had many concerns to begin with because I was nervous starting something like this alone and didn’t know if I’d fit in. But during the technique sessions with Dave and Dee, they were really encouraging and made me feel very comfortable from the start. Everybody I’ve met has also been so welcoming and supportive. I knew I had made the right choice choosing Box It Out when I didn’t have to force myself to attend just for the sake of staying fit.
I’ve been with Box It Out for about 4 months now, and have noticed many benefits! I feel stronger, more energised and happier overall. It doesn’t feel like a chore to work out anymore. My clothes are also fitting better now which is always great!
I would recommend Box It Out to anyone who wants to keep active in a fun, supportive and positive environment. Anyone who is or has been afraid to try boxing/kicking (just like me) needs to definitely give Box It Out a go!!! - Nhi
My sister asked me to join Box it Out with her – I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it or have the energy to do it but thought why not give it a go and see what it’s like. I also knew I had to start doing something else fitness wise if I wanted to stay healthy and keep my current lung function or even improve it slightly – I suffer from Cystic Fibrosis so keeping fit and healthy as I get older is important. After the first week trial we really enjoyed it and so decided to continue on.
To start with I didn’t think my body would cope or that I would be fit or strong enough, especially for the runs – I’m not a runner. I like that the classes are always different and challenge me every time, I also enjoy the fitness tests to see if I have improved since the last one.
Since becoming a member I generally have more energy, my body is starting to slowly change shape wise although I didn’t set out to loose weight only to tone up. I have yet to see an improvement in my lung function, however I last tested it not long after we started. My weight has also been a lot more stable and I don’t seem to bloat so much.
I would recommend Box It Out to anyone who is looking to get fit and have fun at the same time, with a group of lovely people. - Kendra
