Huge shout out to Chris this morning. He said he wanted to improve his boxing technique so I spent an hour helping him fine tune his footwork, headmovement and punching.
A lot of people say they want to learn good technique but after 10 mins it’s pretty easy to see that they are getting frustrated and bored with it - Chris did not! He persevered through the whole session and by the end was boxing better than he ever has. Great work this morning mate and thanks for staying patient and focussed the whole way through, it really paid off.
"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of the hard work you’ve already done."
Di is one of my longest standing PT clients and she’s been boxing with me consistently for over 2 years now (???… I’m not exactly sure how long, perhaps you can help me out Di?) But my point is that her consistent training over time, along with her willingness to learn has meant that she’s developed into not just a good boxer but a very technical boxer!
She has a great understanding of how to move her feet, how to turn her body in order to generate power and how to slip and roll out of the way of punches. Well done Di keep being awesome!
I spent today (along with a lot of my family) celebrating the the 87 years of my Pop’s life. He didn’t get everything right but he did do A LOT! And I think he lived a life that anyone would be proud of.
I knew him as a quiet and thoughtful man but also a very competitive man. And from the stories I heard from him as well as from my gran, my mum and my dad he always backed himself and if a job needed doing he got it done.
It’s funny how something so sad can make you realise how important it is to make the most of your time on Earth. There’s a few things that I’m very ambitious about and at times I’ve wondered if I’ve made the right choices… But I’ve heard that when you’re lying on your death bed - it’s not the things that you did do that you regret, it’s the things you didn’t do.
