    Decatur Boxing

    Actually I'm not sure where to ask this question (so if this is the wrong forum my apologies). Has anyone been to the Decatur Boxing club in Atlanta? I'm fairly close to it and I thought I'd check it out since I haven't been coached or taken classes in a very, very long time. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I don't know anything about the Decatur Boxing Club, but I will whole-heartedly recommend Hitsville Boxing on Memorial.

    Hitsville is good? I'm litterally a couple of blocks from that place as well. Thanks for the help.

    edited for follow up question:

    I read on the Decatur Boxing site that they don't have weights in their facility nor do they encourage people to lift. Which I found kind of strange. Thoughts?

    That's pretty common boxing mentality. Get good at boxing by boxing. Except running most of them still want you to do that...

    There are weights at Hitsville, and we do use them, but they're a very small part of what we do. They're there for you if you want them but very little emphasis is placed on them.

    I've only had one coach and that was back when I was a sophomore in high school (about 7 years ago). He never had me lift weights either, except for occassionaly using dumbells for shoulders and triceps. Honestly, I thought it was just becuase he was sort of old school.
