Why should we don the gloves and punch a pad?
Considered high intensity training, boxing has the benefit of burning as much as 500 calories in one session PLUS calories continue to burn post-workout.
I won't lie, I love a lovely toned physique. Boxing does just that without the 'bulk' which comes from slow controlled movements. The fast pace and repetitious boxing movements shapes and tones muscle giving you a sexy lean look.

Boosts Mood and Energy Levels
Exercise releases endorphins which produce those feel-good hormones not to mention the increased energy levels which will see you flying through the DAY in no time.
Reduces the chance of illness
Sitting for long periods of time has been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. It is also associated with increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and cancer. Studies found that every hour spent sitting increases cardiovascular disease and risk of cancer.
Sometimes a situation crops up early in the week that needs a great deal of brain power to solve. When this happens, the best solution is to engage in a little sweat session. When the blood flow and oxygen levels are increased, the brain creates new connections which improve your cognitive performance, helping to solve those tricky problems, issues and thoughts.
When we exercise, our brains produce more serotonin, a chemical which acts as a mood stabiliser that helps to relieve depression and reduce stress. A much better solution than crying in a toilet cubicle.
