- It is perfect for your heart
Boxing is a high-intensity workout that decreases the risk of heart disease. In fact, boxing exercises require excessive bouts of activity that leave your heart pumping and your lungs working harder every time you put your boxing gloves on!
- Promotes hand-eye coordination
Since boxing requires focused movements and multiple motions at the same time, your visual-motor coordination will automatically become stronger the more you train.

Boxing doesn’t only strengthen your arm as most people think, but also your core, back, hips, glutes, and legs. Why? Because you need your entire body to deliver a good blow.
