Things to do in Gainesville, FL: Boxing for Fitness! **At a REAL boxing gym!**
If anyone had told me a year ago that I would become a boxing fanatic, I honestly would have giggled. However, recently I realized that I have a family history of a movement and executive functioning disorder disease (very rare, it's called Fahr's Disease... I may have it and I may not... but I'm doing everything I can to slow things down, if possible). The symptoms are Parkinson-like (Parkinsonism is the term).
While I was at the hospital with one of my relatives who has the disease, I saw a brochure for boxing for Parkinson's patients. It made sense to me, so I contacted the closest boxing gym, signed up for private lessons, and the rest is history! I love it! I will not, however, actually fight anyone- but I do all of the boxing exercises and the punches with my trainer, Coach Chell, so no chance of getting hit in the head.
I LOVE my boxing gym, Beast Mode Boxing, and it's close to all of my rental properties. For any of my guests/ renters who are looking for an awesome workout, definitely contact them (Coach Jitt and Coach Chell) and sign up for a group or private lesson. It's an intense workout.
Here are a few great articles about why boxing is such a fantastic workout:
