This is particularly perfect for those who are slightly nervous – hitting a bag is far less nerve-racking or intimidating than hitting an actual person.
Boxing is an intense full-body workout and the techniques can be quite intricate. This can be slightly intimidating for those who are new to boxing.
That’s why Healthista have teamed up with BXR (a luxury boxing gym that launched in January 2017 and is part owned by Anthony Joshua himself!) to give you HOW TO BOX, Boxing School lessons with BXR’s head boxing coach Gary Logan.
Logan has trained top clients, including a number of celebrities, since he retired from professional boxing. He knows his stuff, and although he can be strict he also makes sure you have a great time and learn loads from your experience – so naturally he was the perfect choice.
Gary’s mantra is ‘it’s all in the details’, which is what our new ‘Boxing School’ series will focus on – how to execute the details correctly.
From footwork to stance, keeping your guard up to balance, Gary will teach you how. If head boxing coach Gary Logan can’t teach you how to deliver a punch fit for a professional fight then no one can.
