Time to Try Cardio Boxing!

So it seems to me that there are 2 main types of people in the gym world – those who love, love, love cardio boxing and those who are going to love it but don’t yet because they haven’t tried it!

I’m going to help spread the love now as cardio boxing is not only fantastic for fitness but it is also the absolutely best fun so I am pretty sure you will hear more laughter and see more smiles in a cardio boxing class than most other types of classes!

Fantastic for fitness hey .…..well OK here are just some of the seriously good benefits that regular cardio boxing will deliver for you:

  • Improved Cardio Fitness: Boxing requires rapid full body movements that get a huge number of your body’s muscles activated together making your heart and lungs work pretty hard to pump blood containing oxygen to all parts of your body – cardiovascular benefits to the max!.
  • Strengthened Core: Boxing is very challenging for your core as the fast pivoting movements in a standing position dynamically and consistently taxes your main core and stabiliser muscles super hard.
  • Fat Burn: Cardio boxing can burn well over 300 calories per session and as it is high intensity training you will continue to burn heaps more calories well after the session.
  • Toned Muscles: So think about a typical boxer’s physique – lean with a lots of firm well defined (“rippling”) muscles – arms, shoulders, back, chest, abs, butt, hips, thighs and calves. Because cardio boxing is fast and repetitive requiring strength and endurance it helps to produce toned firm muscles all over.
  • Stronger Bones and Ligaments: The pad and glove work during a class provides hundreds of resistance points during a class and as you know resistance training creates stronger bones, joints, tendons and ligaments.
  • Better concentration and mind-body co-ordination: Getting many different parts of your body to move quickly, synchronised and through the right sequence of movements while you are physically fatigued is terrific for improving your mind-body (neuromuscular) connections and mental concentration.

And finally, a word from Jessica Matthews, an exercise physiologist for the American Council on Exercise “A two-for-one cardio and strength workout, boxing targets the entire body. In addition to boosting strength and cardiorespiratory fitness, boxing improves a number of skill-related parameters of fitness, including balance, coordination, reactivity, and agility,”

So come on now what are you waiting for ……there are 3 great cardio boxing classes currently available to you at The Gym Factory – 6.30pm on Monday, 5.30am on Tuesday and 10.30am on Tuesday and all the equipment you need is provided.
