Do any of you kickbox? Is 34 too old to start?

I really think this would be an awesome workout and it would help me better deal with stress issues. Wonder though if I'm too old to start?

you're never too old to start anything. and 34 can hardly qualify as old. Plus kickboxing is good for everyone, i know so because someone i know has their own institute of kickboxing and it's good from kids till oldies.

I'm 35 now! lol, but still wanting to get in better shape. I'd like to lose about 15 lbs and tone a bit before I get any older, but they found something on my spine that needs to be looked at first. I don't know that it's the right time to kick box so until I know what's up with me medically I'm just walking and stretching. ;)

You are never to old, but, if you have not exercised in a long time, I would not start off kick boxing. Start off getting your body ready for something like that. Start by taking it slow, first walk or jog a few weeks, lift some weights, then in the 3rd or 4th week, start kick boxing but a bit each time. If you don't prepare your body, you could get injured by pulling a muscle, then you won't be able to do anything.

Never too old to learn anything! Go for it! I have seen women in their 60's on the Tae Bo videos.

You can do anything you want too, it doesn't matter what age you are. Maybe it's a little late to compete competitively, but not for just doing it and having fun.
