While most boxing instructor-Taskers have all the necessary equipment to train you, you may have to prepare your boxing shorts, shoes and gloves. Some Taskers can buy these for you or lend them to you upon request. If you booked a private boxing instructor and plan to have the lessons at home, you might want to prepare a space where you can take your boxing lessons undisturbed.
This can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months. The time it takes to complete your boxing lesson depends on what your goals are and how difficult it is for you to reach them. If you still need to get into good physical shape, this can take weeks depending on your current body condition. Ask your boxing instructor after a few sessions to give you an estimate of how much more time you need to complete the lessons.
There are several qualities you need to look for in a good boxing trainer. The first is experience. An ideal trainer should have years of experience turning people with different physical attributes into formidable boxers. They should also be good communicators, organised, analytical, optimistic, excellent at motivating people and have good character. If you’re serious about pursuing a boxing career, try to find someone like Mickey Goldmill in Rocky but without the profanity.
Yes, that can work depending on how long you keep to that regimen. Note that you can’t get fit with exercise alone - fitness professionals will advise you that getting and staying fit has 3 pillars: rest, diet and exercise. Make sure that you’re getting at least 8 hours of quality sleep every night and eat healthy meals at home. Combine all these with consistent boxing training and you may reach your fitness goal in 3 to 4 months.
Absolutely. Whether you’re booking them for your kids to let off steam, training for fitness or self-defence, or even to help you improve your boxing technique, these lessons can pay off. Your kids can benefit from improved motor skills and learn about fitness and health. When you train consistently, you can build your confidence along with the added benefit of increasing strength, muscle mass and decreasing your risk of heart disease.
Yes, it is useful even if you aren’t a professional fighter. Boxing can be an effective means of self-defence. You can not only defend yourself if you train in boxing, but you can also minimise your injuries. Most people without boxing training don’t know how to block or evade strikes. More often than not, they also don’t know how to punch the right way, causing them to injure their fingers, wrists or hands.
Boxing instructor services include all the activities and tasks necessary to achieve a variety of goals related to boxing. This can include teaching boxing for kids, or boxing lessons to achieve your fitness goals, learn it for self-defence, or improve your technique if you’re a pro boxer. The activities can include having a training regimen at the appropriate level and intensity. You get to learn the different techniques for punching and footwork. Some Taskers can have you spar with an opponent to gauge your progress and see how well you absorbed the lessons.
Your boxing instructor discusses with you what you intend to achieve by booking their services. They can help you set your goals and create the right fitness program to help you achieve them. Your boxing instructor can help you achieve a variety of goals like teaching your kids to improve their balance and motor skills, helping you achieve your fitness goals, teach you how to defend yourself or even help you become a better fighter if you want.
If your Tasker finds it necessary, they can help you lose weight and gain more muscle to build up your punching power, speed and endurance. They can recommend a fitness and diet program so you maximise muscle gain, so you may want to stock up on healthy food.
If you are on an intense fitness regimen, you may have to get up before sunrise, so why not have a quick breakfast before training? The workouts can take a few sessions, have the workouts before boxing lessons or both - this can depend on what your Tasker thinks is right to achieve your goals.
Your Tasker can teach you the right way to punch without hurting yourself and how to protect your hands before you put on the boxing gloves. Along with the rules, they can teach you how and when to do jabs, uppercuts, crosses and hooks. They can work with you whether you’re right-handed or a southpaw. They can also teach you how to block punches, and evade them with footwork. You can also learn to increase your punching speed with a speedball and increase punching power with a punching bag.
Towards the end of your boxing lessons and when your Tasker thinks you’ve learned and absorbed the techniques, they may have you spar with them or with a student of equivalent level. This can serve as a practical assessment of your progress, and help your boxing instructor see which areas you might need to improve. They can repeat this process of sparring and giving feedback until you master all the boxing techniques and reach your goals. Why not get a memento of this achievement?
