Boxing is one of the most effective methods for both self-defense and personal fitness. As a training method boxing is one of the best for all around stamina, developing muscle tone, and for practical usage. If you look at modern day boxers, particularly in the lower weight divisions, you would be hard-pressed to find any other athletes in better shape.

The biggest benefit that boxing can offer is being in exceptionally good physical shape. Most professional boxers will train for a few hours per day and will run several miles every morning. If you compare this to the average person's fitness, then you will quickly see that boxing surpasses most other forms of training. Boxing will help develop hand-eye coordination, and will improve leg speed and reflexes. It will also work all of the major muscle groups and, through sparring, greatly increase stamina and upper body strength.
