Health Tip: Benefits of Fitness Boxing

(HealthDay News) -- Fitness boxing is a popular way for adults to stay fit.

Unlike regular boxing, fitness boxing does not involve sparring, so there is no risk of head trauma, says Harvard Medical School. Instead, participants throw punches at the air or at a punching bag.

Harvard mentions these benefits:

  • Increased upper-body strength.
  • Better hand-eye coordination.
  • Increased aerobic fitness.
  • Improved mood.
  • Better balance.
