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. As no class involves the physical hitting of an opponent, it is a fun, challenging and safe workout.
Here are a few of the benefits boxercise training in Abu Dhabi and Dubai provide:
MENTAL HEALTH BENEFITS – The controlled and specific movements in Boxercise require a great deal of focus, so much so that trainers actually say that it can improve your concentration and discipline.
RELEASE TENSION – If you’re feeling tense or stressed, Boxercise is the perfect way to let all that go by channeling your aggression in a safe and controlled manner. Even though Boxercise is non-contact, you will feel more in control of your body, and certainly more relaxed and de-stressed after a class.
BURN FAT QUICKLY – Boxercise is the ultimate combination of strength and cardio, so after a few classes you may start to find that the excess pounds are melting away. The classes take the form of HIIT (high intensity interval training) where you combine short bursts of intense exercise with recovery periods – the very best method for losing weight.
TONES FULL BODY MUSCLES – Boxing itself requires quick movements, which encourages your muscles to develop, and Boxercise takes this element and incorporates it into the classes. But it works your whole body over, from your arms, back, legs and core.
