Boxing is open to both females and males and all that is required is gym clothes and a pair of clean gym shoes. Should a boxer proceed to sparring then they are required to supply a mouth guard. All competition uniforms, gear and costs of competing are usually covered by the boxing clubs. Boxing is the most affordable sport to participate in.
Bring to the gym your determination, effort and a willingness to learn and you can become a boxer. The worst that can happen is that you get in the best shape of your life.
Boxers always compete against others that are the same gender, within their same age category, weight category and experience level. Boxers compete in “bouts” not fights. Boxers compete with respect for their opponent and themselves.
