BOXING FOR FITNESS new training method
Boxing is a sport that has long been renowned for its intense training programmes and strictly disciplined athletes. Nowadays it has evolved into a fitness and training method, writes HENARE TAHURI , of which the benefits are being utilised by those acros
Boxfit, as it is now commonly referred to, is becoming ever more popular and expanding throughout the country as more and more people reap the rewards and realise its potential.
Boxfit is a fun and addictive way to get quick results whatever your goals. Because/ of its multi-faceted approach, utilising a wide range of training methods you are able to shred fat, sculpt and tone, develop flexibility, improve stamina and muscular endurance, enhance speed, increase lung capacity, improve hand-eye coordination and mental processing time. Also, in a world that is increasingly busy and demanding, boxfit is a proven stress relief. Allowing you to forget your troubles and release any negative energy and tension as it builds up.
Boxfit uses a combination of “HIIT” workouts – High Intensity Interval Training – and strength and conditioning programmes which lift the heart rate for sustained periods of time exercising the cardiovascular system. This allows individuals to triple their calorie burn in half the time of regular workouts. Boxfit also supports individuals to become skilled in a form of self-defence as they develop correct boxing technique, learn multiple punch combinations and learn how to transfer their weight into each punch for maximum effect.
One of the best things about boxfit is that it can be easily adapted to suit your preference – delivered one-on one, in pairs or groups. Individuals often find a team environment more motivating, drawing strength and support from those around them, pushing themselves harder than if they trained alone.
As a boxfit coach, I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their general health and wellbeing, lose weight, lift their fitness and energy levels, or achieve their sporting goals. Boxfit is an effective training method which caters to all fitness levels and ages. It offers a fun and exciting alternative to regular workouts which clients find enjoyable, satisfying and rewarding, offering results like nothing they’ve ever experienced. I dare you to try it, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
