Switch up your exercise routine with boxing! Boxing is a stress-relieving, full-body workout that challenges your endurance while helping you develop confidence and coordination.
I incorporate boxing for my clients who want to work on their cardiovascular endurance, want to try something new, or want to let off some steam. It’s a safe and effective workout that people of all ages and fitness levels can enjoy. A lot of individuals seem intimidated when they first start a boxing routine, but their confidence grows as they continue to progress and get comfortable! Self-defense and life skills, like hand-eye coordination, can help you navigate through everyday life with ease and alertness. (Think of dancing over spilled Legos on the floor while knocking out all the tasks on your to-do list - yes, that includes virtually learning.)
Have you tried shadowboxing? It’s a great alternative to boxing and can be done from anywhere. You don't need equipment or a lot of space, and you can do it alone. It’s as easy as hitting the air and moving your head and feet.
I started boxing because I wanted to learn self-defense. The skills I learned helped me with my career in Mixed Martial Arts. I loved the fact that I got to test my physical abilities. The workouts left me drenched in sweat and wanting more! I appreciate that there are endless combinations, and every workout is slightly different. There’s always something new to learn!
