Boxing basics

Boxing can burn up to 2 000kJ in 40 minutes. Use the tips below to learn how to be a knockout!

·         Why box?

It’s an effective way of improving fitness and body tone. It’s also great for weight loss because of the intensity and variety. Every class also incorporates the use of functional training methods like weighted balls as well as core and ab work.

·         What to expect

Boxing is a method of interval training with bouts of intense exercise followed by short recovery periods. A typical session is 60 minutes. Depending on your fitness, some jumping, weight work, core exercises and stairs are used. You can also lightly box some rounds with a trainer, wearing full headgear and gum guards.

·         Need to know

You need to be taught the basics by a qualified instructor. You’ll need training gear, gloves, handwraps and a water bottle.
