Boxing Training

The Ringside Boxing Gym located in the Les Mills carpark building was renovated in May 2006, and various boxing classes were introduced.

The techniques used for boxing training are powerful... with the resistence of the heavybags, boxers need to sharpen up their techniques, thinking how each combination would be applied in real fighting in the ring.

Having heard the benefits of boxing traning and how it would challenge us both physically and mentally, I started to attend the "Ringside" classes at the boxing gym. After a few weeks, I started to noticed the differences... the biggest being that my punches are now more powerful and faster! Sometimes I need to slow it down when throwing air punches in order to fit the beats, and I love both BC and Ringside :)

The boxing classes at Ringside Boxing are mostly instructed by Amin Afzaly.

Amin is an awesome instructor / fighter. He holds titles including:

  • 2002 Golden Gloves
  • 2003 NZ Welter Weight Silver Medalist
  • 2005 Tasman Cup

Next time when you visit Auckland, I'd recommend you to try one of the Ringside Classes :) Are you up for the challenge?
