Member having fun in a 1MR One More Round Boxing Class
Traditionally, boxing has been viewed as a male-dominated workout - but that is anything but the case. More and more women have been giving boxing a try, and they have been loving it! Here are 6 reasons that will convince you that boxing is great for women!
Boxing is fun!
Women love boxing classes because they are so engaging and so much fun. Women's Boxing Classes are nonstop action in every class! From jump-skipping, to shadow boxing, to the rounds of punching the bag, it feels brand new and exhilarating every class. Each class will teach you a new combination of punches and challenge you in different ways.
Boxing is a great social experience!
In a boxing class, often times students are guided to partner up on the focus mitts and work collaboratively with a partner engaging in different combinations of striking and defence. Partnering with someone is not just fun, but a great opportunity to get to know and work closely with a friend gaining better trust, coordination of the movements and better flow! Students in Women's Boxing Classes motivate each other and push each other bonding over a great workout.
Boxing is an amazing full body workout!
Women's Boxing Classes are perfect, because they lets everyone get a quick and fun, full body workout. Many people think boxing is just about punching and working your arms, but that is not the case. When you are punching and moving in boxing, you are working your whole body. To generate power behind your punch, you have to incorporate your core, your hips and your legs, not just your arms and shoulders. Also in boxing, you will learn footwork for both defence and to set up combinations better on the bag. This footwork will test your legs - your calves especially. You will also consistently work your quads, and your glutes in boxing, because you will have to learn to squat low to duck punches. This movement is called bobbing and weaving. So, with everything that is involved in a boxing workout, it is safe to say that boxing is definitely a full body workout for everyone!
Boxing is perfect for weight loss!
Ladies who are looking to shed off some extra pounds should definitely try boxing classes. Women's Boxing Classes can help you burn up to 700 calories in one session alone. Its intense pace will have you sweating like nothing you have ever tried before. Since it is a full body workout, it will target your fat everywhere, and help you hit your weight goals!
Boxing is a great form of self-defence.
Boxing for women, and for men, is more than just a sport, and more than just a workout. It is a form of practical self-defence as well. It is important to stay safe and useful knowing some self-defence. In Women's Boxing Classes you will learn to punch with power and speed, to quickly help them get away from a dangerous situation!
Boxing will add tone and definition to those muscles.
Women tend to often avoid strength training, because they don't want to build bulky and big muscles. Instead, they want lean and toned muscles. This is exactly what you will achieve in Women’s Boxing Classes! In boxing, you will build functional strength, without getting the bulk that you would get from weight training. Ladies can tone their arm muscles when they punch, and their leg muscles when they move around the bag, practicing bobbing and weaving. Giving them the tone and shape they desire.
