Here are a number of other reasons why I think boxing should be high on your to do list:
You can get a great workout with no equipment whatsoever. Shadow boxing is going to give you a great workout and you don't need any equipment.
Regardless of whether you are training by yourself or with a partner you really only need a few square metres to get the job done. This makes it an ideal workout to do when you are traveling or can only workout at home.
You can get a great workout in 30 minutes or less. Intensity is the key here. The shorter your workout the higher the intensity needs to be.
4. Oddly enough, it can be low impact.
Boxing is low impact for the lower body most definitely. Compare this to something like running which is going to beat your weight bearing joints (such as your ankles, knees, hips and lower back) in a hurry. If you are injured you won't be doing any sort of workout.
5. Great for your shoulders.
As long as you don't have a shoulder injury, you will find that boxing strengthens not only your muscles but really improves your shoulder stability and strength. (Trust me, I know first hand on this!)
So here's the thing. If you can come up with a reason why you can't box I'm all ears. But it had better be a good reason.
There is so much going for it in terms of the benefits of boxing and there is very little (if nothing at all) that should stop you from being able to box.
