Answer this question real quick: have you ever seen an overweight boxer? (George Foreman coming out of retirement doesn’t count). Unless you’re watching some backyard fights on YouTube, professional boxers barely have an ounce of fat on them. Here’s why: boxing is the original high-intensity interval training—and few athletes are as fit as a mid-tier boxer.

If you want to take your mental and physical fitness to the next level—to really get your mind, body, and soul aligned—boxing class is where it’s at. Boxing isn’t just for boxers; it's a skill that everyone should integrate into their routine. Why? Because boxing develops rhythm, stability, strength, speed, mental sharpness, spatial awareness, and reflexes like a panther.

Here’s the best part: as a trained fighter, he teaches his students skills that benefit them on the street as well as the gym. Most “big guys” fight with their arms—Jason teaches his students (especially the 100-pound ones) how to use power from the ground up. That’s the sort of training you can’t get at the local cardio farm.
