Boxing for fitness is high intensity interval training ( HIIT) that creates an all over-body workout. Most importantly, boxing will make you physically stronger as well as aerobically and anaerobically fitter. Boxing is a complete workout for your cardiovascular and endurance systems as well as training upper body, lower body and core strength.
A boxing fitness class engages all muscle groups for a total workout. When you are using so many muscle groups in one exercise you are generating greater energy consumption – which is great news… more calories are being burnt! Boxing is perfect for FAT BURNING.
Did you know that you can burn between 500- 650 calories in just one class? Just wear a heart rate monitor and you’ll see those calories burn.
Calorie expenditure and fat burning are elevated during boxing as it is such a high intensity workout utilising large muscle groups and constantly keeping you moving. Boxing fitness classes don’t add muscle bulk but tone and define muscles due to high repetitions.
Boxing is a workout that can accommodate all ages and levels of strength & fitness and can be enjoyed by beginner to advanced participants. Drills can easily be modified by you during any class to increase or decrease intensity and complexity of the workout. Work at your own pace and get the results you desire from your training.
