About a year ago I was feeling uninspired by my workouts. I was gaining weight and losing energy. As a life-long exerciser and with 25 years of experience in the fitness biz, I knew these were signs for potentially developing some poor habits.
While expressing my frustrations with Enrique, a long-time MINT staffer, and our fitness-boxing trainer, and he suggested that I try boxing. It’s a sport that always intrigued me, but frankly had always intimidated me. I used to think to myself “how difficult is it to throw some punches? I’m not looking for a fight.”. But I was wrong.
Switching up your routine is essential for staying motivated and is true for both life and fitness.; In fact, it is both a personal and business mantra of mine to try new things, especially if they push me out of my comfort zone. So, I jumped into boxing and was quickly hooked! The workouts are intense, focused, very progressive (building upon what you learn during each session) and diverse (about 30-40% boxing, and the rest agility and explosive work, plus an overall great cardio workout), and, of course, fun.
14 months later I can share with confidence that I’ve never experienced such a full-body effect, and after losing about 10 pounds I was motivated to make dietary changes as well. Having lost 23 pounds and over 4% body fat, I can tell that my hips are more open, I move easier, I am more relaxed, and feel better than I have in years. This experience has inspired me to try another sport that I have always been drawn to, surfing (more on that later, man does surfing have a steep learning curve, but I’m sticking to it!).
Bottom line is that stepping out of my comfort zone has really opened my eyes and expanded my horizons, beyond just fitness related. So, Enrique, take this as an extra thanks.
If you are interested in getting out of your comfort zone and want to give fitness-boxing with Enrique a try please don’t hesitate to send me an email and I’ll give the first 5 people a free session.
Whatever you do, keep mixing it up!
