Gentlemen,

I have been having the hardest time trying to find someone who wouldn't mind giving me boxing training!

I am looking to train like a boxer for health reasons as well as a few other reasons but I am having no luck at all finding someone who will work with me. I have been told that this training is very tough but I am determined to try it.

Do any of you know someone in Philadelphia, PA that would be willing to work with me? I have my gloves (12 oz.) already and am looking to try it once maybe twice a week. (I am going to the gym 3xs a week.)

If you know someone...please let me know.

Ky'a

Ok...maybe I should have said this earlier but I am not interested in taking a "girlie class" at the local gym. LOL

I want individual training. The classes that are at my gym are not "focuhsed" enough. But thank you very much for your comment.

I'm sure there are plenty of gyms in Philly, well, I know there are. There were a lot in the Golden Gloves this year. Just go to a few, check them out, and tell them you just want to work out, no sparring or fighting.

No problem, and don't let a gyms looks fool you. A lot of times the hole-in-the-wall gyms are the best, and the fancy gyms are the worst.

Hi Darlene. It is funny but I almost left. Really...I was but saw your posting and I think I might stay a while. :) Thanks for the vote of encouragement. I did surf the net again last night and got the phone number to a guy who used to box who is now giving training lessons. I was gonna call him today.

The price is a bit steep for me but no harm in trying, right? I'll let you know what happens.

That was exactly the reason I didn't want to "box" at my gym. I would prefer going to a place that looks more like a men's locker room with no light! LOL (No offense guys!) I will remember your advice when I am looking at the gyms. Thanks again.
