Boxing is a two-for-one cardio and strength workout regimen which targets the entire body while boosting strength and cardiorespiratory fitness. It also improves a number of skill-related parameters of fitness – including balance, coordination, reactivity, and agility. This ultimate, high-intensity interval training workout program is comprised of boxing rounds that alternate between periods of maximum effort and active recovery. It is both an aerobic and an anaerobic workout …. the type of exercise that builds strength, speed, and power, all while boosting your metabolism and burning calories.
BOXING GLOVES REQUIRED! NO ACTUAL FIGHTING INVOLVED.
We offer two types of boxing classes:
Kickboxing combines elements of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics to provide overall physical conditioning and toning. Kickboxing begins with a warm-up and gradually increases in intensity, offering a full-body workout that includes movements such as knee strikes, kicks, and punches. Exercises like push-ups and crunches are incorporated into the workout to boost your strength and flexibility, in addition to functional training movements and high-energy training. Couple that with some pumping vibes and motivating beats… you’ve got yourself one kick-butt workout!
Punchography™ is a boxing class structured around strengthening moves and rocking vibes. A trademark of its creator and our amazing instructor, Kristina Doiron, this class will increase your coordination and help you strengthen the brain-body connection. Hand-eye coordination is key for boxing. Punching a bag or sparring requires focused movements and amazing recall, challenging your muscles and your mind. How about some core work…? Let’s skip the sit-ups and glove up instead. Boxing is highly targeted to your core since your hips need to rotate in order to get full extension and deliver a more powerful blow.
