Boxing

Burns Calories

Did you know that after just an hour spent in a boxing class, you’re burning about 450 calories? Boxing is ideal for boosting your metabolism and keeping your body lean and fit. If you’re hoping to shed a few pounds or to maintain the weight you’re at, boxing is our workout of choice. So, how’s it done? Boxing classes often cause a calorie deficit, meaning that you’re burning more calories than you consumed. This is how you lose unhealthy fat, which is essential to keeping yourself healthy and protected from sickness and disease.

Builds Endurance

Between its interval training, strength-building drills, and aerobic conditioning, nothing builds endurance like boxing. Despite what you may think, endurance isn’t just necessary for professional athletes or marathon runners. Not only is endurance essential for everyday tasks, but it maintains heart and lung health and can protect you from various diseases. As you build up your endurance from all those fast-paced, repeated kicks and punches, you’ll find all your other exercises become easier. Say goodbye to feeling winded after a long trip up the stairs!

Improves Energy Levels

While many forms of exercise leave practitioners feeling drained, boxing often does the exact opposite. By improving oxygen circulation and blood flow, boxing will help your energy levels soar. You’ll soon find yourself feeling more energized throughout the day as you work, run errands, and do chores around the house.

 

Strengthens Mental Health

Last, but certainly not least, let’s take a look at the mental health benefits of boxing. At EDJ School of Jiu Jitsu, mental health is just as important as physical health. That’s why we’re so passionate about providing classes such as our boxing course. This form of exercise provides a safe space for you to release feelings of frustration, worry, and stress, and releases your brain’s “happy chemicals.” EDJ School of Jiu Jitsu promotes an uplifting environment where students support each other and athletes feel free to grow through trial and error.
