The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women: A 4-Week Head-to-Toe Makeover
I must have at least 2 dozen books on martial arts fitness/boxing/kick boxing workout books. There are several I just read and never go back to. There are a few that are like my Bible that I go back to every so often to improve on my offering for clients and martial arts students.
The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women: A 4-Week Head-to-Toe Makeover is one of these books that I go back to every so often. I don’t agree with all their stances and footwork but there are lot of good nuggets in that book that I culled into my Cardio Kick Boxing Class.

More info about this book:
Roca and Silverglade break down all the boxing basics, from how to make a fist and how to stand, to more advanced boxing moves and various ways of jumping rope and include a nutritional plan to maximize results. “The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women” offers the ultimate workout for women who want to look their best, feel their best, and be their best.
World-renowned trainer Hector Roca and owner of Gleason’s Gym (an icon in the world of boxing), Bruce Silverglade, have published boxing secrets for women in The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women. This book outlines a step-by-step program that promises to get any woman into knockout shape in just four weeks.
I found this book to be well done. It has a 4-week workout schedule with three workouts per week. I am on the third week and not only are my arm muscles developing, but they glow when I finish a workout and I feel great. This is a full-body workout – you don’t stand still and push your arms around. In addition to 3-minute round-style combo punches and defense, you jump rope and do strength exercises (push ups, crunches, flutter kicks). The instruction is well-illustrated and the book does a great job of motivating you. This can be an intense workout, but you’ll feel stronger after each one. You really need to put your all into the workout – no half-hearted punches, and no cheating!
