    With the likes of Anthony Joshua filling out stadiums, boxing is as popular as ever. There are hundreds of gyms all over the United Kingdom. Club finders in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland will help you get started.

    Is it for me?

    There are different weight categories which means boxing is for everyone.

    You don't need to get hurt to enjoy boxing. But most people use the sport as a way of fitness rather than getting in the ring and or competing.

    Skipping, hitting the punch bag or pads and different exercise drills are used in training and beginners can take it at their own pace.

    • Boxing-related exercises such as Boxercise are a good way to benefit from the fitness side of things.
    • Wheelchair boxing in making the sport more inclusive and England Boxing have produced a development plan to open up boxing to those with physical and mental disabilities.
