Balazs Boxing Newsletter - March 2002
Boxing is not a means to an end, but is an end in itself. This hot new fitness program is safe, intense, and best of all, a great full-body workout. Boxers, unlike the general fitness enthusiast, perform exercises that go far beyond the usual scope of an individual’s workout. Fitness boxing helps to tone, stretch, and develop muscles. Basic boxing techniques cover every aspect of athletic training. Aerobic exercises improve your heart rate, while jumping rope fosters speed and agility. The heavy bag demands strength, and the prolonged nature of the workout requires stamina, energy, and concentration. Fitness Boxing provides a safe, effective and fun workout for all fitness levels.
