Boxing isn’t just a sport anymore. It’s also a popular way to stay fit among modern fitness centres, through a version known as fitness boxing.

There’s no getting into a ring or taking any punches, so there’s no risk of head trauma. Instead fitness boxing has adapted the movements of the sport into exercise routines. This kind of exercise has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture.


There’s no proof that fitness boxing is superior to any other types of exercise, but it does have many health benefits. One is strength. You’re swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength.

When you’re in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you’re strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs. Stronger muscles make it easier to get up out of a chair or carry a bag of groceries.

This style of training is also a great aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise gets your heart pumping and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

It can strengthen bones and muscles, burn more calories, and lift your mood. Aerobics can also boost your endurance.
