Yes: Boxing is a great tool for cardio conditioning and muscle toning. It’s fun, interactive, challenging and best of all — it gets results!

Highly recommended. As a ringside physician myself, just working out with the boxers is totally fun even if you never actually throw a punch at anyone else.

Both diet & exercise: Make sure you exercise at least 90 minutes a day, don't skip meals, avoid soda, juice, dairy, alcohol and fried foods. Eat a healthy well balanced diet! also water, organic vegetable broth, green leafy vegetables, natural pickles, apples are great to fill you up so you dont feel hungry and they are very low in calories.
