Boxing for fitness is more than just a fad these days. It’s been growing in popularity, and I’m glad it’s here to stay. Everyone can now benefit from the metabolic training effects of learning the science and art of boxing, as well as the mindset shifts that come with it.
Take my word for it! I’ve only been a student for three years, but I’m completely hooked. I wish I had discovered it when I was younger because I can see why those who take the discipline seriously train to fight in the ring.
Everyone, regardless of age, gender, or current fitness level, can benefit from learning how to box, even if it’s just for a workout.
Boxing teaches discipline, speed and agility, body awareness, coordination, and mental toughness, among other things.
But we’re here to talk about metabolism.
