Default Beginner needs your opinion

I'm 22, 5"7,180 .
I did hand to hand military combat about two years ago, then started boxing at home-Heaveybag and shadowboxing(3 times a week).
Last week, I decided to train in a boxing gym.
I checked 2 places: First gym-2times a week 90 min each
Second gym-3 times a week 120 min each
I enjoyed training at both places, problem is I'm a student, which means I can't train more than 2 times a week.
In addition, the first gym is about 30% expensive than the second one, so I can barely afford it.
I need your advice.
Thanks in advance!

Its a delicate situation but obviously choose a feasible option. If you can't afford the expensive gym then its not feasible. What you can do is train at the first gym twice, after each session write down what you did and then when you find a day off repeat the session. I don't know if your Boxing just for hobby which is what most people do but when i would train home before i wouldn't do technique because i was afraid i would do it wrong and develop bad habits so i would focus on pure fitness and if your just training for a hobby fitness is something you would like

Actually,my dream is becoming a pro-boxer, but I learn engineering, that means I can't focus on boxing in the next four years.
I guess I would box as a hobby in the following years, yes.

I think your advice is very good.
Thank you, man.

Aight then, no problem. Do the exact same thing but don't do pure fitness. Add a bit of technique like 3 rounds shadowboxing but remember this. Do it slow and good, and KNOW your doing good. Another thing i did was record myself and shadowbox at the same time, i still have my first clips when i first started till today and you see mistakes and to try to 'Patch them'. Do a bit of technique, record, finish your fitness training then watch the video. You notice something isn't right then go record yourself and do the same movement slower and work on it until you get it right. If you some doubt on your technique post a video up here and show it to us and we will tell you what your doing right and wrong.

You did not mention the most important thing.

Which gym has the best trainer?

Answer that and you will know which gym is best.
