Brussels fitness: Why everyone should try boxing


Aspria, experts in Brussels fitness, explain how this sport allows you to combine cardio and all-round muscle strengthening with a focus on core muscles and developing speed, agility, co-ordination and flexibility. It banishes stress, tension, frustration and anger.  And that’s not all, because this sport is also very good for your self-confidence.

Ryad Merhy, the recent light heavyweight WBA world champion and member of Aspria, told us how all-encompassing this discipline is: “I started boxing when I was 14 years old.  I needed to get out of my comfort zone.  Besides the physical aspects of boxing, it’s a discipline which allows you to let off steam within a spirit of respect for yourself and for others, and to work on your reflexes and your mental agility.  Boxing is the school of life and of humility.”
