I'm wanting to join a boxing class. I did a test run yesterday with my earplugs and did notice an increase in tinnitus afterwards. Not sure if it's from all the noise or just from working out in general. Anyone have any feedback?

Just out of curiosity, why boxing? I would suggest karate and learn some self defense techniques along with punches and kicks. Use all them body parts.

Sometimes earplugs can spike a T Try a class without earplugs And if they play music request them to lower the volume

Don't do that activity, 10 000 kinds of hobbies and exercises you can do. Unless you are very passionate about it and done it all your life...? I run on the beach , swim in ocean, no speakers, nobody to tell to turn the volume down! Do something that doesn't require plugs, natural environment, I'm not a big fan of gyms...

I've wanted to do this for a while! I may just do it month to month rather than commit myself for the year. Thanks for your input!

They don't hit you back? Then it's fine;) just keep in mind that gym with plugs can aggravate the t and possibly contribute to hyperacusis...pick a gym that's quieter, that instructor doesn't respect your wishes, ask first , then pay after!
