Yes! My trainer talks about that all the time, I have a newfound respect for boxers!

Kickboxing should be good too. You work more of your lower body then in boxing and as such the different areas in your core. Well, in my theory anyway. I am sure there is some evidence to back it up, lol.
Definitely agree! Before starting with my trainer, I looked into boxing gyms but I was blown away by how pricey they were for just a few classes a month.

Well I do plenty of strength exercises to target the rest of my body but kickboxing is good too.

I never get tired of that.
I could see that for you lol

It's supposed to be hard - if it wasn't hard everyone would do it.
The hard, is what makes it great.
