Boxing is a great, social activity that can be a very effective workout. Not only does boxing exercise your upper body, but it’s also a great abdominal and cardio workout. Plus you'll burn more than 320 calories in just 45 minutes of practicing your right hook.

Check out some boxing studios in your area and inquire about any free classes. Sometimes studios will offer a deal for a first time trial or you may be able to pay per class.
