We have said before, our community offers so many unique opportunities to get moving and stay moving. Boxing isn’t all that unique, but it is a perfect fit for Don!
There are many benefits of boxing, but the two we like the most are the mind body benefits. Boxing is a way to improve coordination. By repeatedly practicing the movements and punch combinations, you begin to feel more graceful and coordinated––even if you weren’t at all to begin with. You don’t have to be coordinated to box, but boxing can help you become more coordinated.
Boxing flexes your mental muscles. You have six punches and five defense moves. You have to remember the names, you have to be quick, you have to be light on your feet. When putting all those combinations together it requires focus and memorization. Your brain ends up getting as much of a workout as your biceps!
