Boxing Is For Everyone!
Boxing is one of the most physically demanding sports on your entire body! Here at Corner Team, our USA Boxing Coaches continually train to work with all ages and abilities to provide the most complete and rewarding experience for our members and guests. Check out some of the benefits of being involved in one of the world's oldest sports!
Strong Bones & Joints
Your bones work in much the same way as your muscles do. The more weight you put on your bones and joints, the more those bones produce bone mass which is critical your long-term health. Boxing gets you up on your feet, puts weight on your legs, knees, and arms and keeps your bone density growing!
Through training routines like sit-ups, push-ups, running, punching, agility exercises, and more, boxing strengthens your muscles and makes you more powerful and speedy.
Boxing involves a lot of coordination because you need to be able to bounce around and move in certain directions with your feet, while at the same time landing punches on your opponent. Moreover, you have to be able to aim your hands perfectly to land those perfect punches, something that requires serious hand-eye coordination!
Boxing on a regular basis goes a very long way in helping you lose weight. An average training or sparring session in the ring, or even just going after a heavy weight bag will allow you to burn anywhere from 400 to 700 calories every single hour.

Throwing punches actually puts your muscles to work and your heart into action! Avoiding others' punches using quick feet, weaving and bobbing, ducking, and moving, also gives your heart and lungs a workout. Finally, building up your stamina through boxing drills such as jump rope and shadowboxing provides your with hours of solid, full-body workout challenges.
Do you know how good it feels to be fitter, stronger, healthier, faster, and in the company of an amazingly diverse group of people? You should try it! It's a game-changer and will put a new pep in your step.
Building a stronger core is critical to having better posture, less back pain, and better balance. Training for the ring targets your core so that you have the ability to deal with quick rotational movements.
Sticking to boxing automatically increases your endurance as you build muscles mass, strengthen your core, and put in your cardio work. For every competitive boxer, endurance is key to outlasting and out maneuvering your opponent, especially in those championship rounds!
It doesn't hurt to have the wherewithal to defend yourself if the unfortunate situation arises. While we train for fitness or for competition in the ring, the lessons we learn in boxing and the ability it teaches us is extremely valuable in real life situations where your life may be threatened.
One of the best things about boxing is that it has the ability to relieve stress and tension in your body. Part of the reason for this is because hitting things and taking your anger out on an inanimate object like a punching bag simply feels good.
Violence is never the first solution, but when it comes to relieving stress and getting rid of pent up rage, a few right hooks and left uppercuts will definitely make you feel better! Another part of the reason that boxing is good for relieving stress is because of the physical intensity it involves. Exercising at increased levels is shown to make people feel happier and relieve the symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression.
