How Can Boxing Help Your Physical and Mental Fitness Goals?

I receive this question quite a bit.   At first prospective students are interested in the concept or fantasy of becoming a skilled boxer, but only for fitness and health.  Over the years, I have had to think about this from the perspective of the motivated 20-30-year-old male, women interested in fitness and self-defense, and even older folks that are interested in keeping both their minds and bodies healthy for the long haul.

The truth is that Boxing is not only a popular Olympic sport, but it’s also an intense and dynamic workout that is available to almost everyone.  Boxing training can help a person lose weight, become fit, and it relaxes the mind.

If you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy running on a treadmill or working out on traditional gym equipment, boxing is a dynamic and challenging workout that can help you shed pounds and learn a useful skill while improving your overall fitness.

One of the main benefits of taking boxing lessons for weight loss is that it’s a high-intensity workout that burns a significant amount of calories. Boxing involves a combination of cardio and muscular endurance training, which means that you’ll be working on both your circulatory system and your muscle’s ability to perform a motion repetitively over a long period of time. A typical boxing workout can burn up to 800 calories per hour and can help improve your mental health as well.

When you exercise, it increases endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline, and endocannabinoid — these are all brain chemicals associated with feeling happy, feeling confident, feeling capable, feeling less anxiety and stress, and even less physical pain.

Another benefit of boxing for weight loss is that it’s a full-body workout that engages multiple muscle groups. Although legs and core are still used while boxing, runners use boxing to give their legs a break while still performing cardio fitness. I certainly did while training 6 days per week for competitions.

  • Mon-Wed-Fri Boxing
  • Tues-Thurs-Sat Running

When throwing 1,000-3,000 punches in an hour, you’re using your shoulders, back, chest, and arms more than running or biking ever could.  This makes Boxing a great addition to any runner’s or biker’s workout routine.

Boxing is also a great way to improve your balance, coordination, and agility, which are all important for overall fitness and health.

Boxing is also a skill that you can learn and improve upon over time. This can be incredibly motivating and rewarding, especially if you enjoy learning new things and challenging yourself.

Learning proper boxing techniques and strategies for throwing punches and using slick footwork, as well as defensive moves like blocking and slipping, requires focus and concentration. This mental engagement can help take your mind off the physical effort of the workout, making it more enjoyable and engaging.

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of boxing for weight loss is that it’s a fun and dynamic workout that can be adapted to your fitness level and goals.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced athlete, there are always new techniques and combinations to learn and master.

“I had a client many years ago that never did a physical thing in her life.  She literally could not jump over the line designed in the carpet.  She was a social worker for more than 30 years and the mental stress had taken its toll.  After 30 minutes of boxing, the cobwebs cleared and she walked out of the gym after every lesson, a new person.  It was quite a thing to witness and many other personal trainers would comment what a difference her boxing lessons made.”

You can also adjust the intensity of boxing drills that use 2lb or 3lb dumbbells (yes, that’s right), lighter or heavier jump ropes, adjust HIIT routines, or just increase or decrease the speed and power of your punches.

Working with an experienced boxing instructor means that you can keep your workouts challenging and engaging, which can help you stick to your fitness goals over the long term.
