Benefits of Combat Training in the Gym

MMA Cage Workout

Get stronger and fitter in the combat zone

We provide all members with access to our great quality combat facilities so that regardless of ability and fitness level, have a go and work on improving your fitness and general health.

Our full-size boxing ring will rival any boxing gym and the Mixed Martial Arts cage presents a unique opportunity to strengthen your body. Training in the combat gym zone will not only help you to strengthen muscles but also help you to lose weight and burn body fat.

Work on weight loss and fat burn

Wanting to lose weight fast? Try a workout using the combat gym zones at Xercise4Less gyms. By including boxing and Mixed Martial Arts into your workout programme, you’ll be taking on a serious fitness challenge and push your heart rate to its peak meaning that you’ll burn a large amount of calories in a short period of time. Burning excess calories will help you to lose weight quick and leave you feeling a lot more body confident.

It doesn’t matter if you have no combat-style training, we encourage all of our members to give it a go and try something new. Using the boxing equipment is a real physical challenge but definitely one that you won’t regret because after your workout you’ll feel happier, much more energised and relaxed.

Combat training is an intense full body workout that will improve your strength. Sparring in the ring will use muscles in your arms, legs and core. Boxing bag workouts can be as challenging as you like but are guaranteed to work multiple muscle groups at one time. Try a couple of punches and then some short sprints, or even 10 punches and 10 burpees, and just repeating this process. This mixture of cardio and strength training will you lose weight and burn excess body fat in shorter period of time.

Improve your mental health strength

Another amazing benefit of combat workout such as using the punching bags or having a spar in the MMA cage is that it will do wonders for your mental health. Think about your really bad days, when you’re stressed and feel stretched and overworked. Imagine that you were able to let all of this out on the boxing bags or by shadowing boxing in the ring.

Everyone should be working on their mental health regardless of their physical ability. This is where the combat gym zones step in. They provide you with enough space to workout for however long you like to become mentally stronger. By releasing your stresses from a long day at work on the combat gym zones in our gyms, you’ll feel happier and much more relaxed in every day life which is something that we all need a bit more of.

Not forgetting about endorphins. Endorphins are what your body produce during exercise so that once you finish your workout you’re left feeling much more relaxed and happy. You may initially find the combat zone intimidating but when you think about the after effect, it’s worth giving it a go!
