We’ve all been scrolling through our Instagram feeds, seen at least one of our favorite celebs throwing punches at a boxing gym and wondered why that is their method of staying in shape? It’s because boxing is a strength and cardio workout in one! The good news is, you don’t have to be in Hollywood to train the same as a celebrity! Taught by some of the best instructors in the Atlanta area, X3 Sports offers boxing classes that will have you raving about it to all your friends. If that’s not enough to convince you to add boxing to your regimen, these five perks will have you signing up in no time!
1. You’ll Sculpt Every Muscle
Boxing improves a number of skills including balance, coordination, reactivity, and agility. Your arms extend for each punch, you’re driving power from your hips and legs, and you’ll work your back, shoulders, and core all in a 55 minute session!
2. You Are Burning Major Calories – Fast!
Boxing improves your resting heart rate and muscular endurance. That lowered resting heart rate and increased stamina gives you an edge in any other workouts you choose to do.
3. You’ll Relieve Stress Like Never Before
Whatever has you stressed out, boxing will help you calm down. Not only is hitting something a healthy and productive way to help you let go of tension, the rush of endorphins will make you happier too. The mental perks don’t stop there! Boxing builds confidence and discipline at another level.
4. You Never Stop Learning
It’s easy for your fitness routine to become repetitive, but boxing will keep you on your toes. It requires complete focus, which makes the time fly by. And unlike running on the treadmill, there’s always something new to learn (or someone new to spar), giving you serious incentive to keep training.
5. You’ll Have So Much Fun!
Boxing classes are so much fun! If you normally dread going to the gym, boxing is the workout for you. In a group class setting, there’s lots of interaction with classmates and many opportunities to make your workout one of the things you look forward to each day!
Why travel all the way to Hollywood when you can train like your favorite celebrities right here in Atlanta! X3 Sports offers beginner boxing classes as well as advanced boxing. Sign up for one of our beginner boxing classes and bring out the warrior within!
