boxing classes christchurchAre you looking for a boxer's workout to keep you in ship shape and get a full on cardiovascular workout while you shape those arms into guns of steel? Punch Fix is Body Fix’s own boxing fit workout. We all know how great boxing can be for keeping you fit and toned but what are some of the other benefits you can experience while punching it out at our Christchurch gym.

Here are the Bodyfix Team’s 8 Top Reasons to do Punch Fix Boxing Fitness Class

1. Build your fitness

Several years back, ESPN along with a group of researchers decided that boxing is the sport that takes the most athleticism. Being a good boxer requires a lot of endurance, strength, power and a fair amount of speed and agility. During this class you will really push your fitness, get your heart pumping and sweat hard. This means week after week you will feel yourself become faster, stronger, more durable, and agiler.

2. Tone your arms - Get ready for the gun show!

Do you dream of killer arms? Boxing classes are one of the easiest ways to tone your arms and build lean muscle quickly. Often the arms can be a hard place to tone, particularly for woman. With Punch Fix you can help target those problem areas. Perfect for keeping the winter insulation at bay during the cooler months OR toning up for singlet top season.

3. Refine your technique

Whether you are a beginner or advanced, every time you come along you will get stronger, sharper and can start to hone your boxing technique with a variety of combinations and footwork drills. Our instructors who have experience in kickboxing and boxing can teach you the sweet science.

4. Increase Physical and Mental Toughness

Boxing is as much mental as it is physical. The physical and mental toughness gained from punch fix will translate into other parts of your life. You will find that your pain threshold will increase, you will become less scared of physical harm, and you will become grittier. Dig in!

5. Increase Self Confidence, Self-Esteem

Self-confidence is the degree in which you value your ability. Self-esteem is the degree in which you value yourself. Both increase in boxing. When you acquire a new skill, become competent at it, and learn to apply to real-world situations, all kinds of things start happening in the brain. You become more sure of yourself and value yourself much more.

Competence breeds confidence. Confidence increases self-esteem.

6. Increase HGH In The Body

HGH is an acronym for human growth hormone. This hormone has long been the holy grail of the life-extension community which helps you look and feel younger and stronger.

Research shows that HGH is produced when you approach maximum VO2 levels when exercising, around 75 to 90 percent of VO2max and when you are training as hard as you do in punch fix, you will get your VO2 levels up that high.

7. Increases Proprioception

Proprioception is also known as bodily awareness, spatial awareness, and hand-eye coordination. In other words, it’s kinesthetic intelligence. Boxing and many other martial arts rely on kinesthetic smarts in order to be effective. Science has shown that increasing proprioception also increases working memory, the memory that is responsible for holding short-term information to do math, solve logic puzzles, remember phone numbers, etc so punch fix won’t only help train your body physically, but also help you with sorting your business accounts at the end of the financial year!

8. Get Healthy and Motivated

Don’t bore yourself on the cross trainer or treadmill again! Jump into a motivating punch fix class and with the high intensity, your heart will thank you with improved cardiovascular fitness and you will lean down and maintain your figure by burning a ton of calories.
