Boxing and Walking - Matlock Weight Loss Camp Day, 1 July 2015

This special blog post report is what happened in one of our recent Fitfarms fat camp weeks as reported by one of our instructors.

Boxing Workout and Walking

Only 2 days left at FitFarms and clients are really starting to notice positive changes in their body composition, fitness and physical appearance. It is amazing how much you can achieve when you are in an environment that encourages your to grow and you are surrounded by positive people.

Today was another day to try something new. One of my favourite sessions is boxing and kick boxing. Not only does it give you a fantastic cardio workout but allows you to learn new body co-ordination skills and release a little bit of frustration on the pads.

Many people shy away from martial arts when they are looking at weight loss as they feel that its not for them. My reply to this is if you can move you can do it regardless of ability. We had those more experienced doing high kicks and big punches and also those with leg injuries working there arms in a chair to give them and alternative session.

Boxing is quite a high intensity workout so we like to compliment this with a lower intensity session like walking. With the weather being beautiful we headed to Chatsworth House which is a lovely country estate. Covering a large area of country side it is so nice to wondering the grounds, seeing the beautiful architecture, getting close to the local wildlife and stunning gardens. This truly is a breath-taking place to exercise with out even really knowing that you are doing it.
