If you’re feeling that “new year, new me” vibe you’ve probably thought about working out.
So to get in on the secret of getting in shape and having fun at the same time we met up with 22-year-old Olympic boxer Carlos Balderas.
Balderas said the trick to staying on a path to reach your goal is taking fitness one step at a time,
“Motivation comes from within yourself, you gotta push yourself … more so it’s about just taking that first little step … you have to be physically and mentally in shape.”
David Balderas, boxing trainer, and uncle of Carlos said it’s more than just throwing punches if you choose boxing as a way to get fit, “The workout is hard, you know boxing is just hard. It’s running, it’s jumping rope, push-ups, sit-ups, medicine balls.”
But, regardless of the work out you choose, there is one thing the pros want you to remember to always push forward, “I don’t think just because you have a setback or because you have a little injury, that means you should stop. If you run into a wall, you gotta look for a way to get around the wall,” said Balderas.
