Health and fitness benefits of Thai boxing

Thai boxing is popular for those that want to keep fit and learn something useful. This type of boxing is great for conditioning the body but it also teaches techniques for self-defence. This is excellent for men, women and children alike and there are many gyms and fitness centres that offer classes.

The main benefit for choosing Thai boxing is that it will help with gaining strength, especially core strength. This not only helps to keep muscles going for longer but also helps with balance and posture. These are important to live a long and healthy life.

This type of boxing also aids with flexibility. Unlike traditional boxing, a lot of the techniques are to do with the legs. The flexibility also aids with balance and strength. There are a lot of conditioning classes that run in conjunction with this type of self-defence and they are extremely helpful. You could also consider doing Yoga or Pilates as well to help with stretching.

Thai boxing is all about endurance and stamina. You need to do lots of repetitions of something in a short amount of time. Stamina and endurance does not just help you to do more in your chosen sport, it also helps you in everyday life. You can also improve your stamina during training through jogging (especially sprint training) and other cardiovascular exercises.

You should look for a boxing class close to you to really benefit from the training and go to it every week. This will help you develop the technique quicker as well as gaining the motivation to keep it going. You should also train and practise to gain more between classes.
