Fitness Boxing is a light version of the actual boxing. Although there are many contents of the actual boxing exercise before but basically it is about general physical fitness and not about sparring, competitions and knock outs.
What is Fitness Boxing? Elements of the actual boxing training such as strength training, punch training, jumping rope, sand bag, claws, pushups, running training, abdominal training are complemented by content of fitness training such as aerobics or stretching. Fitboxing exercises improve endurance, speed, strength, flexibility and coordination, and this has a positive effect on holistic fitness. It has a high endurance component, which has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and demands many muscle groups that are trained for strength, speed and agility.
Fitness Boxing is a full-body workout. The boxers need strength to attack the sandbag and to be able to put endurance into the body for longer. Speed, coordination and agility are improved when jumping or batting. And let’s be honest who does not want a sandbag or a claw from time to time to beat it to get rid of the stress or small aggression. So fitness boxes increase not only physical fitness but also mental well-being.
The trend coming from America has also arrived in Europe. Fitboxing offers the optimal opportunity to escape the everyday stress and switch off.
