If you’ve watched boxing matches, you’ll notice that those fighting are in really good shape. This is because boxing is an overall great exercise that works most of the major muscles in your body.
While your goal is probably not to look like a boxer, boxing is one of the best workouts you can do as a woman. The Hook in Grapevine offers boxing classes for women in order to take advantage of this amazing fitness exercise. Learn more below, and stop by our boutique fitness studio today!
WHY BOXING IS GREAT FOR WOMEN
Sculpt Most Muscles
When you use your bodyweight to hit a bag that is resisting you, you are using most muscles in your body, from your arms and torso to your legs and glutes. Boxing is a full-body workout that you will feel and see in your back, arms, core, hips, legs, shoulders and more.
Since you are using every major muscle group in your body, you will burn a ton of calories when you box. Your cardiovascular health and endurance will increase as well. As a high-intensity cardiovascular activity, you’ll gain the benefits of HIIT workouts as well, including burning calories after you workout in the “afterburn” effect. Furthermore, as you build muscle, you will in turn speed up your metabolism, which helps burn even more calories that can lead to weight gain.
In today’s world, we all have a lot of stress, from career and home life to love life and more. So much is demanded of us from our jobs, others, and, frankly, of ourselves that your stress can be high, which can cause health conditions and a weaker immune system. Boxing is one of the best ways to relieve stress. After all, there’s nothing quite like punching a bag and letting go of all your pent up stress and angst.
You’ll Improve Your Overall Fitness
Not only will you burn major calories and sculpt your muscles, but you’ll also improve your overall health. Boxing requires a lot of coordination, balance, strength, stamina, endurance, agility, and reactivity. When you engage in boxing for women, you will be improving every aspect of your health and well-being.
