THE SCIENCE OF BOXING
The physical benefits of boxing listed above stem from the high intensity levels, fast repetitive punching actions, resistance of the focus pads, multiple muscle groups working together and repeated contractions using force and speed. The mental benefits, such as improving focus and decreasing stress are produced through the fast, furious and fun nature of boxing. Boxing requires you to fully concentrate on the task at hand, allowing you to switch off from the stresses of the outside world. Targeting those focus pads increases the production of endorphins to create feel-good thoughts.
It is clear boxing gets results fast, all within an action-packed workout! Boxing is offered at various times throughout the week. Find a time to suit you from our Group Fitness timetable and join us for some boxing sessions - you won’t regret it!
