#1 It Burns 🔥🔥🔥
Boxing is a great form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Since most boxing rounds include periods of both maximum effort and active recovery, this means that as the workout intensity increases, your body would typically require more energy than aerobic metabolism can provide. So, unlike running at a steady pace, boxing burns more calories in less time.
#2 It Relieves Stress 💆💆💆
Nothing feels better than hitting the bag after a long day at work. We have a tip. Just imagine your boss 🌚 IS the bag. 😂 It'll make you hit that much harder! Think of it this way; boxing kills two birds with one stone. It's a fun and effective outlet for you to get rid of your stress and is also a great form of exercise. You'll walk out of class feeling fit and less stressed. 👊
#3 It Gets Your Heart Pumpin' 💓💓💓
Most people perceive going for a run, swimming or spinning as the only few ways to gain effective cardio training. Well, MYTH BUSTED! Boxing is guaranteed to keep you panting and desperately in need of rehydration. In other words, a high intensity boxing session will exert a moderate amount of stress on your heart and lungs to push them to work harder, allowing you to burn those calories and enhance your blood circulation. If this is a new realisation for you, it’s never too late to rethink cardio and inject some variation to your next workout!
#4 It's SO. MUCH. FUN 💃 👯
Last but not least, if there’s one word I’d use to describe boxing, it’d have to be: FUN!
I am well aware that there are many out there like me, who at best only tolerate the idea of exercising. But fret not, I speak from experience when I say that our boxing-inspired classes are a far cry from what we had to withstand in physical education classes growing up.
During our classes, you'll spend half the time punching it out and half the time doing a variety of different exercises on the floor. We keep things exciting and new, keep the lights low and the music loud. At the end of every session, you can be assured of obtaining an endorphin high – something those P.E. classes were never able to help us achieve.
For those who’ve yet to give it a go, come try punching it out with us and witness for yourself how the fun never fades!
