Why Women Should Take Up Boxing

Boxing has always been thought of as more of a mens’ sport - women have always been in the background. It’s time to change that today. Boxing can benefit women in so many different ways - not only your body benefits from this high-intensity exercise, but your mental wellbeing as well. Ladies, here are some reasons why you should pick up your boxing gloves today!

1. Self-Care

You are responsible for yourself in the ring - just you, yourself, and your boxing gloves. The punches and hits are yours to bear - no one else's. Boxing will train your reflexes and response time - you’ll be more alert of everything around you. Through boxing, you'll develop a sense of self-care that’s unparalleled to any other activity or sport. You’ll look out for yourself more, and in essence, care for yourself more than ever.

2. Entire Body Workout

Boxing gives you an entire body workout. It works out your arms, shoulders, chest, abdominals, back, and legs - all in just one session. Besides, boxing is definitely far more fun and exhilarating as compared to just lifting weights at the gym or going for a run. You’ll get your fun with exciting boxing combinations whilst getting your workout in - it’s a win-win situation for you ladies.

3. Fat Burner
