5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Informative, practical, empowering
Great Book. It covers the fundamentals, presents the material in a readable manner, and comes from a place of support and empowerment. The author is definitely not from the macho school of boxing. She manages to address both the how-to of boxing and the mental/emotional issues. Reminded me of why i started boxing in the first place, and why i want to teach someday.

I feel this book is very outdated. The graphics are very poor, the workout ideas are minimal. It seems to be aimed at women who are JUST getting into sports. Too much basic information (filler) from stretching to...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Results - Super Fitness and Stress Reducer, July 27 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Boxing for Everyone: How to Get Fit and Have Fun with Boxing (Paperback)
I incorporated the Coach's principles into a workout initially geared toward reducing stress from my career as a health care professional. I had no idea of the fitness and stamina I would develop and the weight loss I am experiencing. This book explains the complexities of boxing in an easy to understand manner. Great Book!

This review is from: Boxing for Everyone: How to Get Fit and Have Fun with Boxing (Paperback)
I box at Cappy's Gym in Seattle, and I have referred to this book countless times when working on alignment technique, footwork, etc. It's a great reference for boxers of all skill levels, plus it doesn't "read" like a manual- it's interesting!

This review is from: Boxing for Everyone: How to Get Fit and Have Fun with Boxing (Paperback)
I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it not only provides factual information on the technical aspects of boxing but also inspires female would-be boxers to be their best. An invaluable asset to anyone thinking about boxing.

This review is from: Boxing for Everyone: How to Get Fit and Have Fun with Boxing (Paperback)
This book really helped me get started working out on the heavy bag. The steps are pretty easy to follow and I like the question and answer section at the end of each chapter.
