For 9 years, I did only yoga & I began to feel that I was losing strength and muscle tone. Someone suggested taking some boxing classes. I thought about it for about 6 months before I could get up the courage to come.
I researched all the gyms in the area when I first moved here and I heard and saw great things about South Beach Boxing. I’m a little older and felt very intimidated about going to a boxing gym. I expected big egos and rough people and I was really scared, but I wanted a real gym.
It was the exact opposite!
Everyone was so nice from the moment I walked in. The staff welcomed me with big smiles and made me feel at home and the members were so cool, everyone was so nice. The trainers are so passionate; they really care and love what they do. It makes you feel great about yourself, I just love it here.
Initially I started with boxing then eventually I got into Muay Thai. I use to be a dancer and I discovered that it was like dancing, it’s so technical and challenging.
I’ve gained confidence; I overcame my fears and started doing sparing. It helps you to feel stronger and more able to overcome challenges in life.
It’s been almost 2 years since I first came and I have never looked back. It took about 3 months to notice changes. I began getting the kicks and having the alignment and started coming more and more, my cardio has improved so much.
This place is non judgmental, it not only gets you in shape, you learn a lot of skills and it’s fun!
My life has completely changed: I have more confidence and feel stronger, healthier, and more energetic. This is like reverse aging for me, I feel younger. Win, win all the way around!
