Default Boxing gyms

I live in the middle of no where.
There are no boxing gyms. The closest I get to is making my own gym at my house and having my own set fights with my friends.
Any suggestions besides moving?

Having your own gym is better than nothing but there is no substitute for a trainer unfortunatly. Youd have to travel or move to get real instruction.

Whats the closest gym around you? There may be some trainer that doesn't have his own gym anymore living somewhere near you. I don't know if you would be able to find something like that out or not, but that's better than not going to a gym at all.

I was in the exact same boat you were for a while. Look, unless you move or something you're going to have to find a trainer. I searched for close to year until i found my trainer (Still have to drive like 30 minutes). He has a gym setup in his garage. Until you can find a setup like that, or move, you should concentrate on just basic conditioning (running, calisthenics, situps, jump rope, etc.) Don't do anything boxing specific, you'll only develop bad habits.

Got a basement? Set up your own gym and get some boxing videos. If you have talent you will learn a few things. Of course sooner or later you will have to get a real trainer. There are limits to what you can achieve by yourself.
