Being 50 years old and above does not mean the end of the road; do not let age be an excuse for not including boxing into your fitness program. Boxing is one of the most intense kinds of workout that can get you in shape and also improve your ability to balance. This is because a boxer needs to maintain his/her centre of gravity to throw effective punches.

The benefits of taking up boxing are numerous. Some of them are:

  • Boxing keeps you mentally and physically fit because of the rhythm, movement, coordination, the swings of hips and the power of the arms.
  • Boxing improves and maintains the health and function of your heart.
  • All the punching, kicking, squatting and jumping require an amount of strength; boxing on a regular basis gives you strength.
  • It is also a good way of letting out your stress; you punch your stress out. Whenever you feel like snapping at people, boxing will calm you down. Hitting something is a healthy and productive way to help you let go of the tension.

Boxing is fun. It is good for your heart, mind and soul. By watching what you eat and boxing regularly, you will notice changes and general improvement in your body composition.
