Getting your heart rate up on a regular basis does wonders for cardiovascular health — aka protecting you from heart disease. In addition, cardio helps you burn calories and reduce stress. However, the aerobic exercise often gets a bad rep for being boring. The fix? Nix the treadmill and say hello to boxing.
Boxing classes — think Rumble or Shadowbox — are phenomenal workouts that are adored by celebs and fitness newbies alike. The draw is that they sculpt every muscle, burn calories fast, improve coordination, and enhance cardiovascular health all in an efficient and, dare we say, fun way.
To make the most out of your boxing workout, dress the part in shorts, a high-neckline sports bra, and a pair of HOKA Tivra sneakers. You’re going to be sweating a whole lot in this class, which means light, moisture-wicking materials are ideal. In addition, you need a shoe that will work as hard as you do. The Tivra is a gym-first sneaker that’s designed for agile, diverse workouts. Particularly, its notable sidewall wraps, extended heel for more stability, and flatter outsole for better balance, make this shoe a true boxing champ.
