Back at Gleason’s, here’s where it gets hardcore.
By now, it has been more than an hour and I’ve just finished several rounds on the punching bag.
I’m taking a (much-needed) breather.
Boxing is seriously challenging, on a cardiovascular level, in comparison with cycling or running. I feel winded.
Moving onto the speed bag…
“The Heat” (aka: Heather Hardy) shows me how it’s done. Rhythm is a quick 1-2-3, 1-2-3 with your fists in constant motion, no pause, as if they’re pedals on a bike.
I give it a try, first with one hand, then, with two…it’s much harder than it looks (concentration required).
But, I finally get it.
And, another half hour later…workout complete. I feel BEYOND AMAZING.
Okay, so: who’s coming with me to Gleason’s for round 2?!
Email now to reserve a spot in my class, led by The Heat: email@example.com.
