Searching for a fun, class that gets the heart pumping, every muscle involved, and allows you to take out your frustrations on your partner pads without anyone getting hurt? Well grab your gloves and try some 'Thump Boxing'.
Now before you ladies completley dismiss it, with thoughts of people knocking ten bells out of each other! Let me tell you it is nothing like that, this is 'boxing for fitness' instead it is a total body workout, couples work together someone holds the pads while someone throws combination punches for time then swap over roles. We also incorporate moves such as squatting, lunging, twisting. stepping, and skipping for functionality and variety.
Boxing can be performed by anyone as it is low impact. Overweight and very unconditioned people will often not think twice about going for a run, thinking it is best for weight loss, sadly this is not the case and in time may lead to ankle, knee, hip and or back injuries. Boxing on the other hand as mentioned is low impact, weight bearing so you are putting positive (not negative) stress through your joints, conditioning your heart and lungs (during boxing you work both aerobically and anaerobically, the latter means you cause an afterburn effect which leads to burning more calories for longer after you've finished your class). Boxing also requires some co-ordination, focus and thinking. For example a three minute round of jab, cross, duck, cross, uppercut, hook and a squat does require a little thought and planning! Don't panic the example is an advanced combo, we start off with easier combinations, but however you look at boxing it is fun and a great challenge, people always put in 100% effort and the benefits you receive from boxing are well worth it:)
