Personal training with Mischa

mischa10Personal training sessions can range form being a total fitness and weight-loss workout to a focussed boxing lesson that challenges you mentally as well as physically.

You can use the time to polish those technical boxing skills, so that you don’t just punch with your arms but learn to use your whole body. Or maybe you want to improve your defence or footwork. Or you can keep it simple, focus on your strength and cardio fitness with, or without, boxing thrown in.

Boxers don’t just box, after all, they also do a lot of cross training to get themselves in shape to fight. And they are in great shape. They’re lean, strong, explosive and aerobically conditioned. If you train like a fighter, chances are you’ll end up looking like one too.

But the catch is you have to put in the time and the effort. You also have to eat well and be consistent with your training.

I’ve been training and fighting for nearly 20 years and I know what works and what doesn’t. I know that most people can only tolerate boring gym machines for so long and need to be mentally engaged to maintain their fitness.

There’s no better time to start than the present, no matter how out of shape or inexperienced you are. Everyone has to start somewhere, even the great champions were once beginners.

And if you want to join a Boxing Central class, but feel a bit self-conscious, why not start with a series of one-on-one sessions to get the ball rolling. Or bring a friend and do two-on-one sessions together.

Most personal trainers fixate on body shape and appearance, focussing on what the scales tell you. But I like to go a bit deeper, teaching you skills and helping you to enjoy the process, so that training becomes part of your life and not just a short-term quick fix. Sometimes not knowing the destination is the best part of the journey.
