Did you know that boxing can boost your mental health and general wellbeing?
Nowadays, there exist many variations of boxing: focused on fitness (punches at the air, or at a bag), focused on strategic punches (offense and defense techniques), and focused on using brutal force to beat the opponent.
This discipline is full of benefits because it requires you to change your posture, be ready to think quickly and sharpen your hand-eye coordination. It is not a coincidence that many celebrities are learning this discipline.
Many models have in common that they choose a particular exercise to tone their whole body.
Take advantage of the benefits of boxing:
- Increase your upper-body strength. It will help your muscles to become bigger and stronger.
- Increase confidence levels. Having a better shape can improve your self-esteem.
- Self-protection. What you can learn at boxing lessons may be useful in a risky situation or during a fight (we hope you don't need it for this).
- Improve specific brain functions. While doing this sport you will develop better hand-eye coordination, and probably you will get to feel more alert and attentive.
- Beneficial for your cardiovascular system. It is a great aerobic exercise; you can burn high amounts of calories, preventing also heart diseases or diabetes.
- Release tension and stress
- Improve your physical endurance
- Increase bone mass

Another example can be Brooklyn Beckham (eldest son of footballer David Beckham). He usually plays intensive gym workouts and boxing.
Karlie Kloss is another model that never gives up on training, especially with boxing lessons.
Ellie Goulding is a big fan of boxing and she said, "Without wanting to use that clichéd word, I feel empowered. I've got the power to defend myself. It's a great feeling to know that you don't need to have a bloke around to protect you."
