Hello, I tried keeping up a log before on this site but due to school, work, and some personal issues I had to go AWOL on it. I'm starting up again this time with a goal in mind, I want to compete and win the 2009 Chicago Golden Gloves. So let's start with the stats: Age: 19 Height: 6'3 Weight: 175.5 Division: Middleweight I have had no formal training really. I've been on and off training for about a year now. I'm looking for classes but being a college student, money is a little thin right now. The scoop: I'm at one gym right now and plan on transferring to another in a month. The first gym is called "Degerberg Academy." It's more of a martial arts school that oftens boxing but it has a couple rings, fuckton of bags, and everything else. Why am I transferring? It's 159 a month with only two classes a week that's western boxing related. The only reason I'm staying here for a month is because I paid a trial period of a month so when that's done I'm off to another gym. The gym I plan to hit to after that is pretty well-known, at least in the chicagoland area, called JABB. It's 25 dollars a month and charges 155 for 6 classes.
