Trainer Trials: Amelia & Julie Glove Up And Box

Amelia McDonell-Parry / August 16, 2013

I gotta admit, I was especially excited for this episode of Trainer Trials. My grandfather — shout out to Frank Joseph Parry, whut whut! — was a boxer and won the Golden Gloves for all of Pennsylvania way back in the day. So, you know, boxing is in my blood. Plus, I have a lot of untapped aggression (sometimes you’ll see it come out when I lose my fifth Candy Crush life), so I was psyched to channel some of that energy into boxing. The amazing Albert Russo, an instructor with Real Fitness NYC and a Training Manager with Hype Gym, stopped by The Frisky video studio to show Julie and I some beginner boxing footwork, punches, combinations and drills. I gotta tell you guys, of all the various workouts I’ve tried over the years, boxing was by far the most fun and challenging. Like, I’m obsessed. (And my forearms were sore the next day.) Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, bitches! Check out our workout above — and if you’re in the NYC area, give Albert a shout to set up your own training session.
