What is fitness boxing?

Boxing is becoming more and more popular. But not everyone is ready to accept taking punches. A good alternative is fitness boxing.

Fitness boxing incorporates all the boxing elements that you know from “normal” boxing. With one exception – and that is that in fitness boxing there is no sparring or other physical contact involving punches.

The goal of fitness boxing is to improve physical fitness. Preparation for a fight is not crucial here.

Fitness boxing courses are often offered in gyms. These are often a mixture of boxing and strength or cardio training.

Of course, the exact calorie consumption varies from person to person. Still, with the right diet and challenging fitness boxing, you can watch the kilos melt away on the scale.
