Boxing is a fantastic workout. It will help you physically, Mentally and spiritually. At Shaddock’s MMA And Fitness a large percentage of our classes are boxing related. Lately I have noticed more and more women coming in the door to take my classes . The Huffington Post helps to demonstrate why more women are boxing in their blog.
PHYSICALLY– “Boxing burns 500 calories/hour builds lean muscle, develops stamina and endurance, and ramps up metabolism” according to the post. The Fitboxing and Girlboxing classes at my gym get you in shape through boxing footwork drills and calisthenics as well as bag work. The IronBoxing class combines weight training with training on the punching bags at the gym.
MENTALLY- The post blog suggest “The research on successful aging urges us to learn something new, strategic and to keep testing ourselves with new sequences and moves.” In our classes there are a variety of skills and drills that not only work you out physically but mentally as well. Each class has different stations and different drills, my classes train your body and your mind.
SPIRITUALLY– In the post they stated “nothing works one’s complete attention and concentration” Boxing takes focus. A lot of the skills require extreme focus. A portion of my class my students participate in meditation.
Some boxing facilities turn women away, we welcome that. In fact we have a women’s ONLY boxing class called GirlBoxing on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Come in and give us a try.
Keep your hands up,
