By taking up boxing training, you are making a significant contribution to your physical and mental health and your social well being too. I apply my boxing knowledge and experience through nearly a decade of training as an elite athlete and adapt it to my every day training sessions.
We all seem to feel that little bit better about ourselves when we are physically active. Scientific research now provides a strong evidence base for this. Some of benefits and positive effects include:
• Psychosocial: distraction from anxieties, worries and preoccupations
• Thermogenic: increasing body temperature reduces muscular strain, turning down the brain signals that associate pain with anxious thoughts
• Neurotransmitters: activation of a variety of brain pathways are associated with positive mood state, with feeling happier and in less pain
