Hey, I've been interested in boxing for over 2 years now, watching fights, see others training etc. And since I want to gain some weight (I'm a girl and I'm naturally skinny) I wanted to start boxing. I have a few questions though, hope y'all can help me out a little. - First of all: can you gain weight by doing boxing? Or do most people lose weight? - My mom doesn't really like the though of me boxing, I already told her it's about more than just beating eachother etc, anything else I could possibly tell or show her? - This may seem like a weird question but do they take girls seriously in the boxing scene? Since a lot of people still think fighting sports are just for guys etc. - Should I work on my condition before I start going to a gym? Thanks!
