Moms, we see you. We see how hard you work for your family, your friends, yourself. We see you trying to balance it all with grace and compassion. We see your strength and your fears and your insecurities and your frustration.

And we just want to say, in case someone hasn’t reminded you recently: You are wildly worth it!

Okay so, what does boxing have to do with this? When I was 7, my mother used to take me with her to her kickboxing class every Thursday night. This was way back in the ‘90s, but I remember sitting on the edge of the mat, watching her beat up the heavy bag like a fierce warrior. I thought she was beautiful in her boxing gloves. An actual Wonder Woman.

Years later, I joined a kickboxing gym because she’d set that example for me early on. I saw how much she loved it, how she took that time for herself, how strong she seemed when she was in the zone. I wanted to be like her.

My mom taught me that I was worth taking care of myself. We are all worth taking care of ourselves.

With FightCamp’s at-home boxing and kickboxing workouts, it’s easier than ever to make yourself and your well-being a priority.

8 Reasons To Prioritize Your Boxing Workout and YOU!

1. Keep Up With Your Kids

Boxing and kickboxing are highly efficient (and fun!) cardio workouts that also help you build a solid core, which means that you’ll be building a strong, lean body that can chase, carry, and play with your kids, especially as they get bigger.

2. Set An Example For Healthy Living

You are your children’s biggest role model, and they’re going to imitate you. Set the example of self-care, moving your body, and prioritizing yourself. Boxing teaches you a lot about yourself: perseverance, grit, concentration – all skills you’ll be teaching your kids by example. Our subscriptions allow you to pair up to five people on your account, so you can get the whole family involved!

3. Boxing Is A Full-Body Workout

Even though the foundational strikes of boxing are punches, it is so much more than an upper-body workout. The FightCamp App includes hundreds of full-body boxing and kickboxing workouts in addition to workouts that target your upper body and lower body. Whether you have ten minutes or an hour, our trainers have effective and engaging workouts ready for you to make the most of your limited time.

4. Boxing Improves Mental Health

Boxing several times a week not only strengthens your body but also your mind. Let’s be honest, motherhood demands a lot. Boxing is an amazing way to escape the pressures of work, family, and other stressors. The fast-paced workouts consume your mind, allowing you to block out everything besides your body and the punching bag, and achieve a kind of mindfulness unlike any other. Boxing helps sharpen your mind and manage your mental health. There’s nothing like punching a heavy bag to get out all of your frustrations.

5. Boxing Builds Confidence

We already know that moms are some of the toughest fighters. But between the diapers and the homework and the carpooling, being a mom isn’t always the sexiest job. Boxing lets you unleash your inner fighter and instills a sense of achievement and power that does wonders for your self-esteem. The confidence you develop from mastering the techniques and combinations will carry over into your personal and professional life.

6. You Can Workout At Any Hour

Mom life is go go go! Boxing with FightCamp means that you can hit the heavy bag on your schedule, whether that’s early in the morning before the family gets up or after everyone else has gone to bed. You don’t have to choose between your family’s plans and your fitness goals.

7. Develop Self Defense Skills

While we certainly hope you never need to use your boxing skills to defend yourself on the street, knowing that you can protect yourself and your children is huge for peace of mind.

8. Gain A Support System

Sometimes being a mom means spending a lot more time with toddlers than adults, and your brain – and heart – crave adult interaction. FightCamp’s Facebook Community is by your side to answer questions, share suggestions, and provide motivation through friendly competition. With FightCamp, you are part of a team.
