Boxercise: Worth a punch?

This month I signed up to my local gym and I have already been 10 times!   Tonight, I thought i would take advantage of the fitness classes my membership includes, so I went to my first class: Boxercise.

I had heard of Boxercise before, but I had no idea what to expect from the class (other than boxing). The class duration was 45 minutes and wow did I feel every minute. It was 45 minutes of intense training and I loved it!

Firstly, we were divided into pairs for the warm up, which included sit ups and light punches , squats and press -ups

Then 3 different circuits, including: jumping squats, kettle bell lifts and boxing. repeat x 2 times

Last high intensity exercise before the cool down: Abs. Oh yeah!

Finally, the cool down and stretching never felt so good!

I was extremely impressed with my first fitness class, I was looking to mix up my work outs to keep me motivated and on my toes, this class will certainly become a regular activity for me!

If you are looking to:

  • Improve upper body strength and muscle tone
  • Release stress and improve overall fitness
  • Learn boxing moves without the worry of getting hit
  • Vary your usual workout

I think you have found your new favourite class!
