Moto-Fitness continued

Way back in January I mentioned my interest in joining a boxing gym and getting into fighting shape, in the interest of motorcycle safety of course. Since then, my martial arts friends keep asking me for updates on my progress.

This is, incidentally, why it's good to tell people about your goals.

Thus far, I have watched a lot of videos of Muhammad Ali, read a bunch of articles, researched gyms...

...and that's about it. Oh, I also got a jump rope which I've slowly been getting the hang of again.

Before I actually start going to the gym, I want to be in somewhat better shape than I'm in right now. I know I won't be in nearly as good of shape as the boxers when I do start, but I'd like to be able to keep up with the coach a little bit.

As such, I'm resolving to start my new exercise regimen for the next 30 days. As I said in my other post, I want to be able to do exercises that require minimal equipment. Luckily, I found this handy work out provided by the Iron Gloves Boxing gym. It takes about 30 minutes to do, which is easy because I can do it all at home. It kicked my butt tonight, but I'm feeling great now.

In 30 days, we'll see how I'm feeling about actually going to the boxing gym.

Hey that's awesome! I also have fitness goals that are, well, overall good for me but mainly driven by wanting to have more endurance riding.

Boxing, eh? Sounds neat. Just don't go all Mike Tyson on us. ;)

Truly, motorcycles provide inspiration for so much. I could probably write a post about 100 things motorcycles make me want to accomplish.

hmmm...

Fitness.

What's that? I hope it doesn't have anything to do with eating right, pain, or gain...

Steve - I'm a firm believer in the principle that No Pain = No Pain.

And whatever I'm doing has to be fun. I don't often do things I don't like doing...
