Default Preparation training before joining Boxing Gym?

Right, I'm moving to a new city in September and am going to start boxing again when I get there. However in the months before I want to get back into shape for it. I'm not out of shape but I'm carrying a tad too much fat and my cardio and technique are probably a bit sloppy. My plan was to...

Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Bodyweight exercies (push ups, sit ups e.c.t.)
Followed by a short run, more like a series of sprints

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
2 rounds Skipping
3 rounds Shadow Boxing
3 rounds Heavybag (I have an old one in my garage)
2 rounds Skipping

What do you guys think?

Get straight to the fighting gym, don't bother with fitness gyms.

if you really out of shape I would do that workout mon tues then weds take a break thurs and fri do it again. The thing is some gyms aren't the greatest and will throw you into sparring within a few days. You don't want to walk into those places if you are out of shape. Also it's hard to dedicate all your energy to learning technique when you are panting after a few rounds.

That is a good plan though for a beginner... only thing is if you don't have any prior instruction how is your boxing technique? If you don't actually know anything you might want to just do other fitness stuff until your in shape because you might develop bad habbits.

Best to jump in, you'll sort yourself out at the gym.

Don't worry about first impressions or being embarrassed when you get there, nobody should be copping a judgmental attitude toward newbies in a real gym to be taken seriously.

Exactly, that was my experience when I joined. Most guys are more than willing to go out of their way to help or at least be friendly as long as you present yourself as humble and willing to learn. And some of the most out of shape guys at our gym were pro boxers who take a year or so off after retiring and then come back. Don't overthink that stuff. Boxing humbles most, not the other way around.

Good stuff guys, it's true. That in a good club they're happy to help and the sport is more gentlemanly than any other even though its looked upon as barbaric. I think the hardest thing to do is to get through the doors for the first time and then all it takes is willingness to listen learn and keep going back, you won't regret it mate!

My experience with pre-training to get back in the gym is that I rarely start it and if I do I get frustrated pretty quickly at my terrible fitness. Then I end up not going back to the gym.

This time around I'm just going to jump in and let the coaches sort me out, but having done this once before it's pretty humbling because you're in such horrible shape you get shown up by relative newbs.
