Boxing is a Total Body Workout: In addition to boosting strength and cardiorespiratory fitness, boxing improves a number of skill-related parameters of fitness, including balance, coordination, reactivity, and agility.


Boxing Incinerates Calories—Fast!  Boxing has the potential burn rate of 13 calories a minute, boxing goes head-to-head with other types of cardio like running and cycling. Perhaps the ultimate high-intensity interval training workout, most boxing rounds alternate between periods of maximum effort and active recovery. It is both an aerobic and an anaerobic workout. That means as the workout intensity increases, your body requires more energy than aerobic metabolism can provide, and suddenly you’re also in anaerobic training territory—the type of exercise that builds strength, speed, and power, and boosts your metabolism. So, compared to running, boxing burns more calories in less time.


Boxing Flattens the Belly: Boxing is extremely taxing on the core, your hips need to rotate in order to get full extension and deliver a more powerful blow.


Boxing Knocks Out Stress: There’s nothing better to release some stress than punching a mitt or a heavy bag,


Boxing Builds Grace: Fine-tuning coordination probably isn’t high on your list of gym goals right now, but it should be. Coordination helps you perform better in any workout and strengthens the brain-body connection, boosting your body awareness so you can tune in to how you're feeling physically


Upper Body Cardio: Most cardio focuses on the lower body. With boxing, however, your primary moves come from your upper half, making it a great cross-training option when you want to bust a running or cycling rut, or knock out some cardio that won't tax your legs too much


Boxing Keeps Improving Your Body: No boxer who has ever gloved up has mastered all aspects of boxing, so with our boxing trainers, it will never get boring.  And that means your muscles will never start yawning, so your body will continue improving too.


Boxing safely pushes your limits:  Forget tire flipping and box jumping—boxing can be a safer (yet just as effective and demanding) alternative to some of the riskier heart-pounding workouts out there. Your body moves exactly the way it was intended to move, just at elevated speeds. Plus you can train with the same intensity and purpose of a competitive boxer. That's not necessarily so for other fitness endeavors.
