Default Going boxing alone tonight for the first time!

Ok so I had one boxing session 2 weeks ago and someone came with me. I missed last weeks session due to transportation issues which I was very annoyed about.

The friend who was coming tonight has pulled out so I have made the decision to go alone. I feel pretty ok about it considering. I've had a good day so far in terms of being out the house for a lot of it so that has helped.

I am just going to go; explain how scared I am to the instructor and why and just see how I go. I'm aiming to be able to stay the whole session!

Good luck Nat

Well done on not pulling out yourself, great courage!

Good idea to let the instructor know how you feel, it'll help him to make the experience more comfortable for you... Go get em ..Have fun.

Well done, Nat. Once you start punching things and moving about it will feel good and hopefully will make you feel like you can stay for the whole thing. I went to zumba the other week and had the thought of wanting to leave at the very beginning, but the the thought of people thinking I'm odd for leaving was stronger. Then after a bit I didn't feel that way any more.

Well I went and stayed!!! Had the odd moment but the exercise sessions are short and constantly changing so that helped to keep my focus.

Learnt how to uppercut and right hook tonight!

Feel amazing now but I'm sure I will hurt in the morning! lol

I even managed to stay and chat for 20 mins afterwards with the instructor which was great

Feel much more confident going each week now i know I've done it ok on my own.
