It’s easy to think that boxing classes are best left to the professionals but nothing could be further from the truth. Even if you’ve never worn a pair of boxing gloves before in your life, if you take the plunge you’ll be surprised at just how rewarding (not to mention fun!) it is to try out a boxing class.
Whether you’re just starting on your fitness journey or are looking to mix up your current regime, let’s take a look at the top benefits of boxing exercise classes.
1. Better cardiovascular fitness
The minute you walk out of your first boxing class, you’ll know right away that you’ve had an amazing cardio workout. You’re always on the move during the class which keeps your blood pumping and your heart rate raised so you’ll be constantly pushing your cardiovascular system. Not only does boxing increase your cardiovascular fitness, it also reduced your risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
2. Strong, toned muscles
A great yoga studio is completed with a sense of community and support. Sharing your practice with others is a beautiful part of the class, and this is forged with a passionate and knowledgeable teacher. Facilities which offer a variety of yoga classes and yoga meditation classes are a great way to try something new, and meet new people. However, make sure that your chosen facility offers highly trained teachers for these classes- the connection to the practice is more powerful, and you’ll feel the benefits.
There’s something about going along to your regular boxing class that really boosts your confidence. The satisfaction of learning how to master your boxing technique, the endorphins that come of the regular exercise and improvements in your physical wellbeing all combine to make you feel good about yourself. The support of your boxing teacher and others in the class also gives your self-esteem a boost.
4. Effective stress reliever
It may be surprising to hear that boxing classes can be a powerful antidote to daily stress. After all, how does hitting stuff help with stress? The answer is, it helps a lot. Boxing is a great way to relieve any tension throughout your body and to get your daily frustrations out of your system as you work out. Don’t be surprised if you walk out of your class feeling a lot calmer than when you walked in.
