Cardio boxing is my favorite workout, the first class I took was let’s say challenging. Any new workout you do might seem hard but it gets easier once you get used to the workout. Before you take the class buy wraps for your hands, at class, there will be someone to show you how to do it. I like Mexican boxing wraps they are a lot longer and will protect your hands more. Boxing wraps look like an ace band-aid, so if you don’t like boxing they will still come in handy for other things. There is a difference between cardio boxing and regular boxing. In most cardio boxing classes you will be punching a bag which is still effective and you will have less of a chance of getting hurt. A boxing gym may have bags but they focus on martial arts and to fight. Cardio boxing is good to get all your stress out
At some cardio boxing gyms they can lend you gloves, but if they don’t you may need to buy some before your first class, but my experience is that most gyms will have gloves that you can rent or borrow. Now you are all ready to workout, and it may seem difficult at first, but the end result is very rewarding. Boxing is a high intensity and full body workout, you can burn a lot of calories in an hour of class if done correctly. In boxing, you are using your core more than your arms during your first class, try to feel the abs working. As you pivot from your hips you will create more torque and thus hit harder and work your body more. I suggest focussing more on speed than trying to hit as hard as you can. If the instructor is good he or she will let you know if you are doing something wrong to prevent you from hurting yourself. Like all exercises you can injure yourself in boxing you can hurt your hands, knees, and back which are the primary injuries.
