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.
