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.

Why Boxercise?

Boxercise is the best stress buster around. It is considered one of the most effective forms of cross-training available today.

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.
