We hit the boxing gym last night for a little tour.
Guys and gals working out on the punching bags, mitts, and pads.
It was great to see the energy--push ups, sits ups, weaving and jabbing, kicks, and more.
They even had an Israeli self-defense class, taught by what I believe was a non-Israeli--that was a little strange.
I asked one guy who looked like he'd been around the block there, if he was one of the instructors, and he told me how he's been boxing for 30 years.
Curious, I said "What did you do before boxing?" He said, "Fighting! I've been fighting my entire life."
Anyway, whoever is laying around the house in front of the boob tube day and night--you need to get out and try some moving and shaking.
Great stuff, and right in the mold of my role model, Rocky! ;-)
