Boxerciseis a great way to do that, making you feel calm because all the aggression is very channelled and controlled. Even though there is no physical contact, it enables you to feel in control of your body and more confident about protecting yourself if you are required to.
Boxercise stimulates your mind and boosts your self-belief. It's a great sport for overweight children, and it also helps build self-esteem and respect in young people who may be bullied or lack physical confidence - I worked with children from the age of 10 and have seen first-hand how it can stop bullying and increase their confidence.
Each session will involve a warm-up and cool-down, with a series of boxing drills and skills. The class will challenge your aerobic stamina with constant moving exercises, plus the short, sharp exercises, such as punchballing, that train your anaerobic energy systems. If you are not used to doing explosive, short-burst activity, expect to be challenged.
