Boxing is one of the best full-body workouts you can possibly do, because it requires a little bit of everything. Boxing requires great speed, endurance, and strength throughout your upper-body, lower-body, core, and cardiovascular system. ESPN has even recently named boxing the sport with “THE MOST degree of difficulty. Unlike a lot of other training methods, boxing is extremely functional for building up explosive power and stamina. That being said, ladies you don’t have to worry about bulking up because the high intensity intervals of your traditional boxing round can burn up to 1000 calories in a single workout! Long story short, boxing shreds fat, FAST!

Boxing is also a really fun skill to learn, because unlike traditional workouts, you are constantly working on something new, or perfecting a certain punch. It truly is a great way to de-stress as well. Boxing is also a great form of self-defense too, and can allow you to better protect yourself if heaven forbid you ever need to. There are so many reasons you should give boxing a try!
