There’s a reason why boxing training is so popular with athletes, models and celebs. Not only is fighting a combination of cardio, strength & skill, it’s one of the most powerful ways of finding that inner bada##!

It’s a complete body workout & will help sculpt muscles you didn’t even know existed!

The lift & fall of your heart rate changes with intensity of the rounds, hence it’s ability to crunch calories & FAST! Burning a whopping 13 to 17 calories per minute, combine that with conditioning in the same session & you’re absolutely crunching numbers.

Focus on the punches & the ability to snap them back challenges the muscles & mind. The focus allows you to totally zone in & before you know it, you’ve finished a killer session.
Sessions don’t become repetitive like other types of training such as running on a treadmill, as there’s always something to learn! The ability to gain fitness, skill, strength & stamina is some serious incentive to keep training!
