Posted by

Boxing has always been one of the most popular sports in the world. Thanks to names like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, a lot of people anticipate fights between the best fighters the world has to offer.

However, boxing has taken on another field by storm – health and fitness. It is fast becoming the exercise of choice for a lot of people. The good thing is that women are taking to it as well. There are a lot of reasons why the public is jumping on this.

First it offers great cardio vascular exercise that burns out calories. This makes them healthier. Second it helps practitioners develop stronger and more toned muscles. People think that this exercise only affects the hands and arms. In fact, 30 minutes of it against a punching dummy tones all muscle groups.

Some people take to it because they want to learn how to defend themselves. Boxing is the best way to defend oneself when trouble comes. Then there are those who want to lose weight. Spending half an hour in your home boxing with a punching bag helps people lose weight. It makes them sweat a lot.
