I agree that he shouldn't spend a ton of money before he's tried it, but he seems pretty enthusiastic and we need more youths taking up the sport. You know that most things worth pursuing are very unpleasant in the beginning but once you get in the groove it's...therapeutic.

I was all over that like white on rice in a paper plate in a glass of milk in a snowstorm. Got $200 of gear for $100

Wish they'd do it with other brands though, because I'm not a huge fan of everlast.

I dont think anyones hating here. Just telling him to try it first. He may have other things he can spend his money on if he doesnt really like it, Im sure he will but just in case theres no sense spending the cash if hes not going to stick with it.

Why? You're in the gym looking to improve your boxing ability. Maybe you should concentrate on progressing rather than worrying what you look like.

Don't get discouraged if this happens, just turn up session after session until they see you are serious, then they will get involved.

Number two: Don't act like you know it all. Attitude is everything. If you show a keen ability to learn and take constructive criticism & advice on board, things will run a lot smoother.

Good luck and just enjoy yourself.
the highlighted post above is a great thing to remember, this happens to nearly everyone (and it shouldnt) i even do it myself, keep going and practising yourself, you will have to prove to these trainers that you have a bit of talent and most iomportantly you WANT it
