Aidan is right at home at 3rd Street with a fellow Dubliner at the wheel! 🍀 #3rdstreettribe
How did you get into boxing and how did you find yourself at 3rd Street?
“I did various martial arts in my teens and early 20s and loved them all. As I approach my 40s, the weight doesn't stay off like it used to so I went looking for a local combat sports gym to join and get moving again. I found 3rd Street after some online searching and the fact that it is run by a fellow Dubliner was a welcome surprise!”
What's the best part about boxing? Why do you train?
“I love that boxing combines a high intensity full-body workout with a lot of mentally demanding aspects. The mental demands keep me engaged and prevent me from getting bored - there are always incremental improvements to be made.”
Any words of advice or encouragement for newbies?
“It's a very friendly vibe at 3rd Street so don't be intimidated if you've never done a combat sport before. You will definitely get a great workout either way, but it's worth trying to focus on technique and form as you start out.”
