When a lot of people hear about boxing training, they imagine experienced athletes doing tough strength drills and following strict diets. However, unless you want to become the next champion of Australia, this is not necessarily true.

Boxing can also be a great amateur option that'll help you improve your speed, agility and general physical fitness, as well as relieve stress after a long day in the office.

In recent years, the sport has become extremely popular across Australia and numerous Australians have chosen to join a boxing gym for working out. So, let's see why boxing is such a good discipline?

You can learn more about boxing lessons near you in our article.

First of all, you need to know that boxers don't just throw punches at each other but also move around the ring. This part is very important because it means that in addition to strong arms, a good athlete also needs very quick legs.

Additionally, even to perform a good jab or hook, your whole body, starting from your feet, will be involved. All this means that boxing classes are a way to develop all the parts of your body harmoniously without favouring one or another.

Second, boxing classes are a very good way to improve your mental well-being. When we go out of our offices at the end of the day, we are often full of different troublesome thoughts.

Throwing a couple of punches at a punching bag can help you unwind quickly and feel more relaxed.

Finally, boxing is anything but monotonous. Throughout your classes, you'll learn a variety of punches and other techniques that'll add a great deal of variety to your style. This means that boxing can also be very fun.

So, let's see together what are the best locations to take up this amazing sport in Adelaide and boost your fitness in no time.

Let's go

Develop a good boxing technique in a club in Adelaide

Probably one of the best places to get started in boxing is specialised boxing gyms. Those are locations where amateurs and professionals meet to practise their favourite sport and they often employ very good coaches.

Usually, you'll be offered a good choice of contact and no-contact lessons and can opt for one or another depending on your level. Your coach will explain the right posture to you and suggest workout routines to boost your physical fitness.

The advantage of taking group classes in a gym is that you'll be motivated by the people around you and make a lot more effort than if you were training alone. What's more, honing your punches can be much more efficient and fun when you do it with other people.

Another strong point of boxing gyms is that you'll be sure to find all the necessary equipment there. Aside from punching bags, you may also need focus pads, dummies or a ring for your exercises.

A gym can normally offer you all that, so you won't need to worry about anything.

Being a big and developed city, Adelaide has some of the best boxing clubs in South Australia and even Australia in general. Here are some examples of locations to get started in boxing.

You can also find an excellent boxing gym in Melbourne.

Team Turner Boxing Gym

This can be an excellent place to learn boxing with a qualified coach in a friendly environment. The gym offers a good choice of lessons, such as group boxing, pad classes and sparring sessions.

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced boxer, you'll certainly find something interesting for you at the gym to improve your technique and general physical fitness.

What's especially good about the gym is that it offers a free training class to beginners, which can be a great opportunity for them to discover the sport and meet with the trainers.

And if you want to improve your skills quicker, you can book personal training lessons at the club, during which a qualified coach will help you draw up a personal workout programme and understand your mistakes.

Boxing Club "Tractor"

People can practice boxing for different reasons. Some would like to learn their technique and take part in competitions, others are simply looking for physical fitness. The Tractor boxing gym is a place where all these objectives can be reached.

The gym offers special "boxing for fitness" lessons, training and sparring sessions for advanced boxers, as well as their original "music box" lessons. You can choose either of the options and have fun exercising.

Our article can also help you find an outstanding boxing gym in Brisbane.

These are just two examples of excellent boxing gyms in Adelaide, but the city has many more locations to offer. You can easily find something near you on the Internet and contact them by email if you ever have any questions.

And if you are a student, you can find sports lessons at your university. Find out more on the University of Adelaide website.

Muay Thai or Kickboxing?

The particularity of classical boxing is that fighters are only allowed to use their fists. But you might wonder, wouldn't it be a good idea to use your legs too? Well, it actually would, and this is the reason why kickboxing and Muay Thai have become so popular.

Both of them actually allow fighters to use their legs, but the difference of Muay Thai is that you can also hit with your knees and elbows, whereas in kickboxing you can't.

Training both your legs and arms can be extremely efficient for fighting and fitness, so a lot of people choose Muay Thai or kickboxing instead of classical boxing. On top of that, Adelaide has really a lot of locations to practise them.

Southside Muay Thai

This is one of the boxing studios in South Adelaide specialising in Muay Thai. They offer a good choice of lessons that can suit not only men and women but also teenagers. You'll train in a group with other students and your fitness and technique will quickly improve.

There are excellent Muay Thai gyms in Perth too.

And if some particular kick or punch seems especially difficult to you, you can always book a personal training session with one of their coaches and they'll help you overcome all the difficulties.

Adelaide Kickboxing Academy

Another excellent location to learn kickboxing in Adelaide is the Adelaide Kickboxing Academy. The gym is equipped with excellent training facilities for both kickboxing and weight training and its coaches offer excellent courses.

The location can be convenient for those living in the North and the centre of the city. It has training sessions both in the morning and evening and also at the weekends. You can contact them by email and they'll help you choose the right classes for you.

Learn boxing with a private coach

Adelaide has a lot of boxing clubs offering a variety of services, but they may not be suitable for everyone. Whether you live in the North or the South of the city, an excellent alternative for you can be taking lessons with a personal trainer.

They'll help you develop a training programme tailored to your needs and make sure you acquire the right technique. What's more, private classes can give you greater flexibility in terms of place and time.

There are also excellent boxing trainers in Canberra.

Exercising in a park

To make your boxing training as enjoyable as possible, an excellent idea can be to take lessons in one of the city parks. Working out in the open air is very good for your health and you'll have a lot of space.

You can do exercise on the grass and then work on your technique with your coach. Additionally, many of the parks in Adelaide have training equipment you can use to improve your fitness and skills.

Boxing lessons online

Online lessons may not be the most obvious format but they can be extremely effective. First of all, it is much easier to organise because you can do it right from your home and don't need to commute.

Second, you can use a webcam for your lessons, so your trainer can show you the right movements and see occasional mistakes. This means that online lessons can be as good as lessons in boxing clubs, especially for beginners who don't usually do any contact sparring.

Find the best coach for you on Superprof

A lot of people who'd like to take up boxing struggle to find the right trainer for that. This is where Superprof comes in. On our website, you can view the profiles of numerous boxing coaches from Adelaide or South Australia, as well as trainers working online.
