14 Mar BENEFITS OF BOXING
Boxing has to be up there with one of our favourite forms of exercise. Why? Because it is not only a great way to get you into shape physically, but its also a great way to get into shape, mentally.
Here are our top 6 reasons why we love smashing the pads!
Its Therapeutic: Having a bad day? Or a bad week? Kicking and punching is a great way to release any stress, anxiety or depression! Not only will it leave you feeling physically stronger, but you will finish the session feeling much lighter mentally aswell.
It Burns Serious Calories: Boxing is one of our highest calorie burning classes. And not only will you burn the 500+ calories in the 45 minutes, you will continue burning calories for the entire day thanks to the high intensity interval combos! Who wouldn’t want that??
The Time Goes Fast: There is so much variety in Boxing, that the sessions absolutely FLY! There is nothing worse than looking at the clock during your workout, wondering when its going to end! The combos and partner work in the sessions definitely keep your mind occupied, so before you know it its finished!
Its BAD ASS: We don’t know about you, but we love the feeling of smashing the pads with bad ass beats. Its like you feel invincible and that you can take on anything. Hello Rocky Balboa, we got this!
It Increases Your Fitness Levels Drastically: Ever wondered why Boxers in the ring are so incredibly fighting fit? Its because Boxing is one of the best ways to increase your cardiovascular system and fitness levels, faster than anything else. 2 minutes of intense combos at 110% is all you need to get to that red zone. But don’t worry, there is rest too!
It Will Drop Body Fat Fast: Looking to get lean and drop some serious body fat? Gone are the days of spending an hour on the treadmill.. Because lets face it, who wants to do that? 45 minutes of Boxing, 2-3 times a week will get you shredding into that lean machine within 12 weeks!
