Aidan is right at home at 3rd Street with a fellow Dubliner at the wheel! πŸ€ #3rdstreettribe

How did you get into boxing and how did you find yourself at 3rd Street?

β€œI 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?

β€œI 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?

β€œIt'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.”
