Boxing For Women At 40

Boxing for women can be terrifying. For anyone to walk into a boxing gym for the first time, but if you’re a woman 40 and older and many of the boxers are young enough to be your kids, your first tendency might be to run away. If you can stand up to that urge and provide yourself to sign up for a subscription, congratulations. You’ve just opened the door to one of the best workouts you’ll ever encounter.

If you’ve seen any boxing motion pictures, the unmitigated thought of a boxing gym’s atmosphere might be enough to make you want to take up golfing instead. In reality, many boxing gyms aren’t occult, damp, odiferous places. Look for one that’s brilliantly lit and welcoming, and check to see if it has female trainers on staff and offers female-only classes. You might also be surprised, and relieved, to see other women working the heavy bag when you arrive. Many gyms give you a trial membership for one day. Use that time to gauge the atmosphere and the attitudes of the trainers and members to see if the gym is a match for you.
