Q: I haven’t exercised in a few years, do I need to get in shape before I start training?

Q: Will I lose weight?
A: Boxing training is great for weight loss. It’s an intense sustained workout that burns between 500-1000 calories depending on the intensity. Training usually lasts 90 minutes and although it might seem slow after completing Boxing Mechanics, soon enough you’ll be sweating like you never have before.
Q: Why is boxing such a good workout?
A: Training like a fighter is a total mind & body workout that combines aerobic exercise with calisthenics. It tones the body while increasing muscle mass and decreasing fat. Boxing improves endurance, stamina, reflexes, balance, flexibility, cardiovascular health, self-discipline and self-confidence.
