What are the benefits of doing aerobic and cardiovascular fitness and why would someone choose a fitness class like boxing to accomplish this?
What is Aerobic/ Cardiovascular Fitness:
A simple way to think about aerobic or cardio exercise and fitness is any exercise that gets your heart pumping. Aerobic fitness is classified as any form of physical activity that increases your heart rate and your bodies use of oxygen. When working on your aerobic fitness, you are working on improving the ability of your heart and lungs to supply oxygen-rich blood to your working muscles so they can keep working for longer periods of time. This is integral in a class/sport like boxing. While the anaerobic system comes into play during your quick and high intensity burst of punches, its your aerobic system which sustains you over time to allow you to continue to work for periods over 30 minutes and longer.
