It is not necessary to be punched in the face in order to get in shape. Most people prefer to use a Peloton bike or lift weights to get in shape rather than go to a boxing gym, which makes sense. Boxing for fitness, on the other hand, has grown into a thriving subculture as it has progressed from dank gladiatorial dungeons to upscale boutique fitness centers. Boxing is an excellent workout for people of all ages and body types, and it is especially beneficial for those who are overweight.
I oppose violence, but I am in favor of punching inanimate objects for the sake of physical fitness. Infamous Fight Camp is a full-fledged boxing system that can be used in the privacy of your own home. Punch trackers, lessons and workouts, gloves and wraps, and other accessories are all included. The workouts are fun, and they’ve helped me maintain a healthy weight during the pandemic. I couldn’t say the same for all of the other time-consuming tasks I needed to finish.
Fitness camps, such as FightCamp, have recently gained popularity as a form of high-intensity training that can aid in weight loss and physical fitness development. FightCamp brings the thrill of boxing and kickboxing to the convenience of your own home.
Is boxing an effective form of exercise?
Boxing for fitness is a great cardio workout that anyone can do. Aerobic exercise, which increases heart rate, aids in the prevention of hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It can help with bone and muscle development, fat burning, and mood enhancement.
Is it acceptable if I bring my own gloves and heavy bag? Yes, you can bring your own gloves and/or hand wraps to FightCamp. With their Connect plan, you can continue to use your existing heavy bag while saving money.
Boxing is an excellent way to burn calories and lose weight. Boxing’s high-intensity nature aids in the burning of visceral fat, or fat that accumulates around the waist.
As a former boxer, I’m both excited and saddened by the transition from battle-hardened warriors to average Joes trying to stay fit in the modern era. These cardio-boxing boutique classes are popular, but the quality of boxing skills taught in them is, in my opinion, questionable.
After my first workout with FightCamp, my reservations about their approach were dispelled. Tommy Duquette, co-founder of FightCamp and former member of the United States National Boxing Team, demonstrated the four punches used in the workout: the jab, straight right, left and right hooks. His tips, which included everything from planting your feet and twisting your hips to throwing hooks with your elbow level with your fist, were nearly identical to mine.
To round out the workout, 15 minutes of shoulder and lung-burning combinations, speed work, core strength, and leg movements were performed. The punch counter encouraged faster movement and increased workload as a variety of exercises were performed.
