Boxing is it’s own kind of therapy

There’s a secret that a lot of people don’t know about. It’s the fact that boxing can provide much needed relief from stress besides providing an outlet for pent-up frustration and worry. And that’s not all. Boxing must certainly rate as one of the premier sports for conditioning and toning the body and strengthening muscles, not to mention burning tons of calories in the process.
With a minimum of equipment (good boxing gloves and a punching dummy or punching bag) one can elevate their physical fitness to a degree that may not have thought possible.
While there remain millions of people who have not yet been introduced to the sport of boxing as a participant, there are many thousands of others who have found that boxing is just the outlet they need in their lives. Many of those thousands are younger people who have channeled into a much more positive life after discovery this age-old sporting activity. The National Golden Gloves Tournament which will be held in May will include many participants who have taken the road to a better life and left behind a troubled existence through the sport of boxing. Some of them claim that boxing literally saved their lives.
Certainly boxing is not the only sport that provides stress relief and an avenue to physical fitness but it is one that a growing number of people are turning to.
