Have you tried Boxercise?

Boxercise is an effective form of cross training that incorporates a combination of boxing movements and aerobics. This makes for a fun alternative and also improves rhythm, coordination as well as burning calories.

Boxercise is an exercise class based on the training concepts boxers use to keep fit. Classes can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve shadow-boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punch bags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. Most Boxercise classes are aimed at men and women of all ages and fitness standards. As no class involves the physical hitting of an opponent, it is a fun, challenging and safe workout

It focuses on upper body conditioning, toning of your arms, chest and abdominals. It also includes some lower body exercises as well as improving cardiovascular fitness so is considered the perfect training workout.

Our new Boxercise class is available at Whitton Sports & Fitness Centre on Thursdays 6.30-7.30pm
