Why does a late middle-aged copywriter box? For cardiovascular fitness. For stress release. For trimming pounds and turning fat into muscle. To hear my doctor tell me I have the cholesterol levels of a twenty-one year old. And oh yeah, for fun–lots and lots of fun.
About 8 years ago, I realized my family history clearly revealed high blood pressure and diabetes. So I began looking for a workout routine that would help me keep those risks at bay. I remembered that my Dad and Uncle had boxed as young men, so I thought let’s try it. Wow! I found the boxing workout incomparable for cardiovascular health and overall fitness. And punching heavy bags and speed bags are great ways to release workday stress.
I’ve been training with Freddy Marratto now for more than three and a half years, and it has become an important and rewarding part of my life. Freddy is a consummate professional, who has carefully designed my program to meet my individual needs and desires. I like to train and box in the old school way. So Freddy blends a mixture of core strength exercises with a wide array of footwork, punching, and defensive drills that let me train like Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, and Rocky Marciano trained! And I love listening to Freddy — a passionate boxing historian – tell all about why the old timers did what they did – in the ring and out!
I’m never bored!
If you want to get in and stay in the best shape of your life, call Freddy right away! Don’t wait!
