Is boxing the right fit for me?
Boxing is a good full-body workout. It covers all body areas and provides a useful balance between cardio and resistance training.
Short bursts of high intensity cardio are shown to burn more fat than a steady state cardio session, and also continue to burn more calories long after the workout is over.
It's not all about getting in the ring either, a lot of clubs offer sessions focussing on the boxing skills or even Boxercise / BoxFit classes.
Is this suitable for me?
Boxing is an activity for all ages and fitness levels. if you’re worried about being out of shape, recovering from an injury or suffering from a condition, it may be worth consulting your GP before you start.
Remember, you don't have to be like Rocky, boxing is excellent for baseline fitness without even stepping in a ring for competition.
