Want to learn to box? This video series shot at Anthony Joshua’s gym will help

He did it – Anthony Joshua has regained his world title against Andy Ruiz Jr.  We’re celebrating with a series on how to box shot at Joshua-owned BXR London 

Britain’s unified champion Anthony Joshua, 30 has been redeemed six months after he was defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in New York.

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

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 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.
