    What do you do in your first boxing lesson?

    I was wondering is £5 a week worth for boxing lessons. And how much do you pay for your boxing lessons?

    Probably conditioning, how to stand, and a few basic punches.

    That depends on how often you can train for that.

    The boxers at the school I train in pay $10(australian) per class.

    When I trained many years ago it was skipping, skipping and more skipping. After that you could have a break and go for a run, followed by bag work or shadow boxing. It may have changed now that we are in the new millennium.

    the absolute first thing most rainers do is show you how to stand, then they usually spend the rest of the session working on footwork and a jab. usually the first couple of session focus on the jab since it is the single most important punch in boxing.

    Like my instructor told me "the jab is the only punch, that if that is all you throw, you can win the fight"

    P.S. I train for free with friends of mine so I really wouldn't know how much lessos cost.

    At my gym you spent most of the first lessons on footwork, they would also take you on the pads for some basics. Then of course the conditioning :)

    It was 2 or 3 quid for a couple of hours i think

    dunno about that, he has that blank vacant look in his eyes. maybe he'son something.

    1st day at gym? hmmm... jog to warm-up, stretching, footwork drills, footwork drills, footwork drills, footwork drills, footwork drills and when we were knackered footwork drills to cool down.

    depends on how fast you progress from foot work, basic punching, bag work, pad work, pad work combos,

    then again, it depends on the program of the gym you're in.

    Depends on how much you train.

    I think boxing gyms are great...

    In my experience, much cheaper than other MA dojos/dojang etc. I know of a few places were its 50p (£0.50) for 2 hours.

    Also the work ethic and emphasis on conditioning your body to fight is great

    You are pushed hard but the results show.
