What is Boxercise
Boxercise first began in the UK in 1992 and is based upon
training principles that have existed for hundreds of years.
It combines aerobic and anaerobic energy systems in a manner
that not only ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances
sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination,
balance and timing. The class is based on the training concepts
that boxers use to keep fit. Classes can take a variety
of formats but typically will involve shadowboxing, pad
work, skipping, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. Boxercise
is guaranteed to be fun, energetic and motivational.
Boxercise is the best stress buster around. It is considered
one of the most effective forms of cross-training available
Boxercise combines a cardio workout with a conditioning
workout to help you increase your fitness and stamina, lose
weight and tone up all at the same time, making it one of
the most effective ways to exercise.
