Our coaches lead BoxFit by demonstrating choreographed movements of punches and knee strikes. The punching combinations you will learn are: – jabs – crosses – hooks – uppercuts
Class also incorporate a warmup of dynamic and static stretching. We end our Class with 10 to 15 minutes of core exercises like crunches and planking to complete the fully body exercise.
Despite the name, BoxFit is a noncontact workout. All punches and kicks are thrown into a bag or onto pads. It’s a high-energy workout that can burn between 350 and 450 calories an hour, according to the American Council on Exercise.
Your elevated heart rate moves into in an intense zone in which cardiovascular conditioning takes place. This has a positive impact on your heart.
Cardio conditioning can help you have a daily calorie deficit, allowing for fat loss. This loss may include the belly fat that can be so difficult to lose. Excess belly fat has been associated with a higher risk of heart disease, certain types of cancer, and diabetes. Our BoxFit class challenges your technique, endurance, and above all, concentration. Half the battle is mental — you need to focus on the individual movements that make up a combination.
Cardio kickboxing is a good fitness choice for those looking to burn calories for weight loss, or to improve stamina and heart health. People who become easily bored with stationary cardio equipment like treadmills and stair steppers will enjoy the fast pace and new movements in a BoxFit class. We welcome ages 10 and up!
You don’t need any martial arts or boxing experience. Everyone is welcome.
Beginners are advised to begin slowly. Listen to your body and take water breaks when you need them. Work your way up to exercising at full intensity.
