Boxercise® - Beneficial for Health
Boxercise, the best stress buster around, is one of the most effective forms of cross-training available today.
A Boxercise class can incorporate many components, depending on the strengths and personality of the Boxercise Instructor taking the class. So every class is different and exciting.
One of the favourite class formats is a circuit style class including boxing style stations, such as the Focus Pads, Punch Bag, Skipping Ropes, Medicine Ball and other more general exercises found in a good circuit class.
Focus Pads are the closest you'll ever get to hitting your partner for real, often used by personal trainers as the intensity of the workout can be varied from beginner to advanced. The pads allow the Boxercise Instructor one-to one contact with each person in their class every time! How many fitness classes can claim that? It's no wonder that the retention rate of Boxercise class participants is so high.
Working the punchbag, a major component of any boxer's regimen, combines cardio work, strength training, timing, balance and boxing skills into one fitness activity. Hitting the bag is a fast high rep workout that builds muscular endurance as well as strength. Hitting a heavy bag is similar to weight training in principle, because it offers resistance.
Another favourite is the Boxercise Aerobics format. This uses power moves to punch up your heart rate. Every hook and jab puts your rectus abdominis, obliques and lower back to work. Simply punching works the biceps, triceps and deltoids to give that upper body a toned look.
Boxercise is the latest and best exercise to empower women and get men back into the studio.
The workout uses the entire body. Cardiovascularly you burn more calories in an hour than using a stairclimber. Boxercise combines use of both aerobic and anaerobic energy systems with the systematic recruitment of both fast and slow twitch muscle fibres in a manner that not only ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination, balance and timing. Boxercise classes are always fun, energetic and addictive. Correct technique takes practice and good instruction.
