Ready To Rumble

20229084_10213688362753063_205585877112026510_nRecently I have been putting in a lot of time at the gym and following an awesome workout plan (thanks Workout Labs!!!! ), but I still wanted to spice things up a bit, find something fun and try something new.

So say hello to boxing. I have always wanted to try boxing and I finally decided that there was no time like the present. I had started following a boxing studio in Calgary called Rumble on Instagram a few months ago, and seeing their posts was the final push that I needed.  About a month ago I logged into their website and on a whim booked myself into a class.

20229113_10213688363273076_7391214987261958464_nI will readily admit that I was nervous walking into the studio. I had no idea what to expect. Was everyone going to be better than me? Would I be the only new person? Was I going to look ridiculous? The answer to all of these questions ended up being yes, but I still had the most fun that I have ever had in a workout session.

I got there and their friendly staff helped me get checked in and gave me a quick tour. I was handed gloves and hand wraps and scampered off to the change room (which is frigging beautiful!!!Seriously the most modern and sleek change room I have ever seen) to get ready. I quickly realized I had no idea how to wrap my hands, but luckily the instructor Janice was there to help me. She walked me through the process and then welcomed me into her class.

So the studio at rumble is a black room with white accents and when class starts and the lights go down… it all makes sense. This is like dance club meets fight club (according to their website) and it sure lives up to that expectations. The music was pumping and quite frankly the perfect workout playlist. Between sets of punches, the instructors have you doing squats, pushups, sit ups and all other sorts of moves to keep your heart pumping and give you an incredible all over workout.

Since starting boxing, I have been going 2-3 nights a week and I absolutely love it. It is such a great stress reliever and such an awesome environment. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and non-judgmental.

If you have ever contemplated trying boxing, I urge you to give it a go! You will have a blast! You can find out more on Rumble’s website, here: http://rumbleboxing.com/

I dragged my BFF along for a class and despite his protestations, he ended up loving it!
