Join FightCamp (opens in new tab) Founding Trainer Flo Master (opens in new tab) for a 4-Round "Box 'n Burn" shadowboxing workout. The only equipment you will need is your body, water, and a towel. You will learn and use six different punches, footwork, and bodyweight exercises during this total body workout. Get ready to sweat, learn, and have fun!
Fast-paced workouts such as this one can help lose weight easier; in fact, a 2012 study (opens in new tab) showed that "Twelve weeks of HIIE resulted in significant reductions in total, abdominal, trunk, and visceral fat and significant increases in fat-free mass and aerobic power" in overweight young males.
HIIT workouts have other benefits, such as increased metabolic rate, improved cardiovascular health and the fact it's time and space-efficient. This shadowboxing workout is an excellent example of a time and space-conscious HIIT session: you need minimal equipment – wearing workout shoes wouldn't hurt – and very little space to shed fat.

Watch: Flo Master's 4-Round “Box ‘n Burn” shadowboxing workout
Please remember to take it easy: if at any point you feel weak or out of breath, you'd better take some water and breath to bring your heart rate down. It wouldn't be the worst idea to don a multisport watch or a fitness tracker to keep your heart rate (and calorie burn) in check.
Wearing a fitness wearable is a good idea for another reason. One of the many pitfalls of following a healthy lifestyle is not remembering how much progress you've made, but by tracking your workouts, you'll have a log of all the exercise sessions you had to remind you to keep going.
