Get moving this year with a free boxing class
Looking for a fun, different way to get moving this year?
Take a free beginners boxing class at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at TITLE Boxing Club at 7601 Mentor Ave., Mentor.
The class is part of the Mentor Public Library’s Get Healthy Series. Each month the library will offer a free program on how to improve all aspects of one’s health.
The boxing class is open to everyone. No previous experience is necessary. In addition to learning some basic techniques, participants will also learn the different parts of the body that boxing exercises. (It’s more than the arms.)
Participants should prepare for a workout, be dressed to move and come about 15 minutes early so they can get their hands wrapped. TITLE Boxing Club will provide hand wraps and boxing gloves, though people can bring their own if they prefer.
You can register for the class on Mentor Public Library's website or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 216.
The Get Healthy series continues with a talk on happiness on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch. James Kargakos, a psychology professor and certified life coach, will discuss the science behind happiness and what detracts from happiness.
