One, Two, Hook...

Imagine having someone scream at you one, two, hook over and over and OVER again until you're blue in the face. Well, that about sums up my evening. Tonight was my last boxing class in the package that I got and it was like Alberto (the instructor) knew that. He pushed me further than I felt I had gone before and trust me, I'm already feeling it!

As much as I wanted to throw up at the end of class from the amount of energy I exerted, it is still one of the best workouts I've ever done. I can honestly say that I feel myself getting stronger with each class I take. Turns out the deal I wanted to buy last week was for new clients only, so I think I'm going to bite the bullet and buy a package of classes. It's not every day that you find something that you enjoy doing yet also makes you feel like you're going to die.

For anyone that is a slave to their gym, I highly recommend quitting! I was so sick of mediocre teachers at NYSC pretending they were yoga instructors and kickboxing instructors and decided it wasn't worth my $90 a month. Since then I found a gym that is $20 a month with no commitment that has more treadmills and ellipticals then you could imagine. The trade-off is, there are no classes, but that's ok! I've been exploring yoga studios and now found a boxing studio, both of which I would never have done if I hadn't quit NYSC. So if you're sick of the same boring workout routine, take a chance, you never know, you could be the next Muhammad Ali.


  1. Awesome! That sounds like such an intense work out! This week (and next week) T-Slav is on business trips so instead of getting rides to work, I've had to walk a LOT further than usual. The school is at the very top of a steep hill and I've been late so I've had to basically run it. It's been great to have that bit of more activity in my day and has inspired me to exercise more! Your blog is giving me more ideas ;) Keep writing Dana!

    1. Aw thanks Nikki! I'm really enjoying blogging so far and I'm glad you're enjoying reading it. We're inspiring each other from afar. :)
