Q: I am __ years old and just barely started boxing. Am I too old to box or ever be any good?
A: I’ve never been one to believe the old adage about boxing that goes “Boxing is a young man’s game.” There was an article on ESPN 2 years ago showing how there are still several boxers in their 30′s and 40′s that are still winning world championships!
I would recommend a safe and healthy dose of boxing for just about capable person! It’s never too late to improve your physical health, sharpen your mind, raise your confidence, and break a sweat all in the name of fun! As long as you have a good trainer and gym that understands your goals as a boxer, there’s no reason why you can’t accomplish them. Boxing can be a great source of exercise, entertainment, or competition whatever your needs may be.
I’ve seen people start boxing at the age of 25 with minimal dedication and still manage to have a great time while accomplishing new personal goals in fighting and physical shape.
The bottom line – it’s never too late to start boxing. All you have to do is go to a gym and see for yourself that there are men and women of all ages looking to get a great workout mentally and physically. I hope this helps!
