This week’s movement schedule is all about learning and getting comfortable with the foundations of boxing. Boxing is an all-encompassing physical and mental workout with benefits for every age and ability. You will build strength, coordination, balance, and work up a sweat — all while training your mind to learn new moves and put them together in combination rounds. Are you up for the challenge? Let’s jump in by learning the most important position in boxing, Stance & Guard.
