Calorie Burning

Boxing can easily burn as much as 500 calories per session, and due to its high intensity training ability continues to burn calories for hours after the session has ended.

Increased Muscle Tone – Without bulking up!…

Punching is a fast repetitive action that produces toned taut muscles, in contrast to the slow, controlled, heavy movements involved in body-building or weight lifting.

Build Strong Bones & Ligaments

Resistance training strengthens your bones and reduces the progression of osteoporosis. In boxing, punching bags provide resistance as does the bodyweight exercises you will endure during class.

Increased Cardiovascular Fitness

Boxing is a full body movement testing your cardiovascular system to the max, forcing your body to adapt and making your heart and lungs work more effectively allowing you to train at a higher intensity, giving an even greater fat burning effect.

Improved Muscular Endurance

Boxing requires your muscles to contract repeatedly causing the muscles involved to fatigue. With training, your muscles can keep contracting for longer durations without getting tired, allowing you to train harder for longer and ultimately burn more calories.

Improved Core Stability

Anything that causes your body to become unstable requires your core muscles to work harder to keep you balanced. Boxing requires lots of fast rotational movements and these core muscles will develop to allow you to punch hard without losing your balance

Improved Strength and Power

Boxing is the ultimate full body workout. Correctly thrown punches use your legs, hips, glutes, core, obliques, back, shoulders, chest and arms. Punching against resistance causes all of these muscles to contract with more force and speed, developing further your strength and power.

Stress Relief

Punching bags will empower you and make you feel really good! Take out the stresses of your normal life in a safe, controlled environment. It will leave you calm and relaxed and ready to tackle whatever curveball life throws at you next!

Improved Co-ordination and Body Awareness

Moving lots of parts at the same time requires a good connection between your brain and your body. With patience and practice, focus and discipline can transfer over to other sports and activities.

Improved Confidence and Self‑Esteem

Mastering the techniques involved in boxing often make people feel pretty good! The better your technique, the more force you can put into your punch. The noise you hear when you land a strong, accurate punch right on the sweet spot of the focus pad is so satisfying!
