The Sauna Suit originated from Boxing and Martial Arts. Losing Weight for contests is a vital aspect of these sports and Sauna Suits are commonly used from novice boxers to world champions. World Champion boxers such as Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto and Ricky Hatton to name a few have all used Sauna Suits as part of their training routine.
Boxing Training in the Sauna Suit is an excellent form of exercise and a great discipline to learn. Boxing training involves a variety of different aspects including running, boxing technique, skipping, bag work (hitting punch bags), pad work, sparring and circuit training. Boxers are without doubt one of the fittest athletes in the world of sport as the training takes immense personal dedication with training and dieting. Boxing can also help with increasing self esteem and confidence.
Boxers use the Sauna Suit to accelerate weight loss during exercise by increasing your metabolic rate and calorie burning. This means not only does exercising in the Sauna Suit require more energy but the Sauna Suit stimulates your body to burn fat. This means that instead of using carbs or muscle tissue, fat is the fuel of choice, meaning you lose weight in an effective manner. It is fact that exercising in the heat really can “burn off” the pounds.
For boxers who have to weigh in for contests the Sauna Suit is vital piece of training equipment. The Sauna Suit will help lose water weight and this can be a great benefit to those that hold excess water weight. This is also known as cutting weight and once the weigh in is completed the boxer can rehydrate with fluids.
Most towns or cities will have a local boxing club offering classes to beginners and boxing fitness classes. The majority of fitness gyms will either have a punch bag or a boxing based fitness class such as boxercise.
Boxing is a great sport to take up especially if you suffer with knee problems, certain aspects of the training would have to be avoided but even just punching the bags is a great workout.
