You are probably kidding us with your 19 years. Young as hell.

There a two kinds of people. People with talent or people without talent.

i had doubts and put it off for a long time but just thought i better stop wasting time and just give it a shot otherwise I really will be too old! I just want to give it a a year ortwo and see what happens.

If the fitness from the start is there it is achievable, and you will progress quicker.

I am looking for a trainer around me and the nearest is 60 miles away its a commitment when the nearest gym is 60 miles away
You need to work your chain of command and let your commander and all people in power find out you want to represent your unit on the USMC boxing team. At the same time you need to find out when and where are the next try outs and the try outs after that.

After you find that out? You have to make a judgement call. Do I have enough time to be good enough to make the team this try out or should I train and wait for the try out after next? The try out will NOT be the place to "test" your skillz. Trust me, if you get TAD to go there and get your ass busted in the first round you will probably NOT get another chance under the same commander.

So I guess you aren't too young, you just have to be smart. Just remember, getting on the team isn't like joining a gym. There are tons of guys with solid skill sets from all around America joining the Corps with the express intent to get on teams. There are even more "freaks" who are just damned good from birth. This isn't to say you can't hang, but to say make sure you approach it like it is do or die!

You can go, but when you do... GO HARD!

You are NEVER too old to take up boxing. You may not get in their with the "Young Lions" but you can ALWAYS kick the shit out of a heavy bag! Hahaha.

I think it depends on what you want to do. If you just want to box because you like it than your not old at all. However if you're thinking of turning professional and becoming a world champion etc. than I think you are at a big disadvantage, but never say never. I'm 21 and decided to join a boxing gym because I enjoy it and want to box. Good Luck

Not too old at all, go for it. I just had my first fight and I'm 22, I wish I'd done it years ago but I've got the party life style out of my system now and I'm not looking back!
