Most of the people living in Sydney will never know the value of the boxing gym, a brilliant resource they will never get to know. Sydneysiders will grow up, learn, work, exercise, travel and return never fully understanding what they have missed out on.
If you are one of those people reading this article and have never tried boxing training, take a chance and do yourself a favour by trying it for at least 12 months. The benefits of the training are amazing and you should take the following points under consideration:
You Will Understand What It Is Like To Be Truly Fit
Professional boxers are amongst the fittest people in the world and have physical conditioning for high intensity. If you have never achieved peak physical fitness at any time in your life, you won’t know of the natural high you have each day that comes from being in great physical shape. Boxing training will get you on this path and give you a glimpse of the athlete you can be, even at an amateur level.
You Will Know What It Is Like To Be In A Fight
If you attend a boxing gym, part of your training will be sparring. It is a well-known fact, that this kind of training can scare people. They confuse it with violence. What they don’t know, is that learning how to fight decreases the risk of violence-related injury if they are ever unfortunate enough to be attacked. The first natural response to anyone in an attack is usually intense alarm that will inhibit their ability to defend themselves. The shock of being in a combat type of situation scares them into not being able to respond in a way that minimise their chance of injury. Athletes that have sparring experience will have a much better chance as they will fall into a defensive position naturally while they fully understand and assess the danger of the situation. They are also in a much better position to respond to shut their attacker down.
You Will Drop A Lot Of Weight
The object of boxing exercise for you may not be weight loss, but anyone who is overweight will drop extra kilos quickly. The intensity of boxing and the training make it one of the most effective forms of weight loss around. Many weight loss programs and boot camps use boxing training as a fundamental part of their program for this reason. Combined with a healthy nutrition plan, boxing is also one of the most fun ways to lose extra weight.
You Will Meet People From All Walks Of Life
It is healthy to meet people that you wouldn’t otherwise get to meet. People from all sorts of backgrounds participate in boxing training. You will get to meet lots of people that you wouldn’t otherwise get to meet.
Even if you try boxing training and you decide it isn’t for you, the experience you gain from the training could possibly save your life and at the very least, you will learn some things about yourself that will be invaluable in whatever you choose to do after in your professional and personal life.
