Have you been following our HOW TO BOX video series? Well to make things easier we’ve put them all together for you. Former champion boxer and head coach at BXR London Gary Logan shows us everything we need to know about boxing

The rise of female boxing and boutique boxing gyms

Boxing has become a super hot topic with an abundance of celebrities, including superstars such as Gigi Hadid, the Kardashians, Dua Lipa and Adriana Lima, saying it’s their favourite way to keep fit.

‘Women’ and ‘boxing’ are two words that no longer sound odd if used in the same sentence, with women’s participation in boxing and other fight styled sports rising dramatically in recent years.

Champions such as Nicola Adams, Ronda Rousey and Katie Taylor are just some female boxers who have made headlines and who have inspired women everywhere to fight fierce in what used to be seen as a male-dominated sport.

Due to such a rise in popularity, boxing gyms are popping up all over London. Boutique boxing gyms help you to train like a boxer, without actually finding yourself in any real physical fights, because let’s be honest after a long day at work that’s all you need.

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 gyms are set up to take people from a beginner level to a more advanced stage, so if you are worried you’ll be the only one there who has never boxed before, think again.

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) 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.
