Improves cardiovascular health - boxing is exhausting, throwing punches at a bag over and over again is a great way to build up to better cardiovascular health. The more your heart works closer to capacity the more accustomed it will become to doing so, getting stronger in the process.
Increase strength - as well as actually punching, training to supplement punching involves increasing muscle strength so you can punch harder and more quickly. Getting better at boxing will make you stronger overall, so as well as helping you lose weight, it can help you gain and maintain muscle.
Improves reactions - learning how to box will improve your full-body coordination. This is something that becomes increasingly important as you age. Typically coordination is reduced as you age, making you less physically aware and more susceptible to falls. So with boxing, you help bolster yourself against declining faculties in the future.
Relieves stress - any form of exercise increases production of certain chemicals such as serotonin, endorphins and dopamine that can help reduce stress and boost your mood. Boxing is no different. And what better way to take out your frustrations than on a bag?
Burns fat and builds muscle - and who doesn't want that? Boxing training is basically a form of HIIT. You have short bursts of intense activity punctuated with periods of less explosive movement.
