Editorial Reviews:

The Boxer's Workout is a fitness routine for whole body conditioning, aerobic fitness and fun. It presents the non-contact workout program that boxers use to get into shape.

The Boxer's Workout starts with the basics: pre-conditioning, roadwork, when and where to train, diet, & equipment. It contains over 80 photo illustrations on warm-up, movement, shadow boxing, heavy bag, speed bag, punches, circuit, developing your own boxing style and more. It assumes no prior knowledge of boxing. The Boxer's Workout is suitable for men, women, teens and seniors.

Since its publication in 1990, the book has sold over 17,000 copies worldwide. It has grown to become the definitive guidebook for serious boxers and martial artists, and is also recognized in boxing circles as the "bible" of the burgeoning boxing-for-fitness movement. The Boxer's Workout has been excerpted in Men's Health and Men's Fitness magazines, and was featured in Men's Journal magazine and on TV's "Body By jake" fitness show.

Summary: Boxing for white-collars
Comment: I had the chance to attend at some boxing lessons as side-training to my karate activity. Till this point, I've rather under-estimated this sport, even if I've always admired boxers (who on this planet didn't just love the "Rocky" movies?). But I have to admit that the physical training is intense and complete, so I recommend this kind of workout (sparring included or not) to everybody who wants to remain fit.
I've choose this book because I find myself in the same boat as the author: a white-collar who wants to stay in shape after his sporting career was over.

Summary: Must buy for boxing beginners
Comment: Gives nice clear explanations and a descent workout regiment... if you are new to boxing you NEED this along with an experienced trainer... Its also a good go to book to polish fundamentals.

Summary: Great Book!
Comment: This book lays it all out for you. How to get started, what equipment you need to buy (if any) and a step by step progression on boxing. It gives you the tools, some strategy, and of course, the "Boxer's Workout" which is great.

Five stars for this great look at boxing!

Summary: A Good Basic Boxing Book
Comment: Re: All the negative comments - Boy, what a bunch of whiners! The author is an amateur white-collar boxer and uses his yuppie buddies in the photos - so what? All I care about is if the techniques are solid, the photos are clear and the writing is coherent (yes to all). Is this book the ultimate boxing reference? No, but it is a very good book for someone just starting out in boxing. I got this book used so I don't feel like I got ripped off.

Summary: a book for the few
Comment: As a working class reader (truck driver). I was a bit annoyed that this book focussed on the white collar gentleman at all times and not on just anyone interested in the sport. this can be off putting and annoying. I persevered with the book though and found it to be an enjoyable read and have applied some useful tips and techniques to my own boxing training and sparring. The big dissapointment for me was the diet section (one of the main reasons for me buying the book). I expected a whole chapter with meal planning, weight loss/gain advice and more, but got barely a page.
Overall i think you should get it if you are begining boxing training and wanting to get fit but try to look past the stuff about white collar boxing. the sport is for everyone regardless of class. The author should have written it with everyone in mind.
