Boxercise® utilises training principles and skills that have existed for over two hundred years within the noble art of Boxing. While it's true to say that Boxercise® won't make you into a ring-crafted fighter, it does use those same skills in a controlled non-combat environment to give you a full body workout experience. So, if you want to learn to box, join a Boxing gym and learn to box, but if you just want the fun of hitting pads and a great workout, then Boxercise® could be for you.
In fact, Boxercise® is such a great way of working out and and toning the body that it can be used in many sports to enhance individual fitness and endurance requirements, plus it's much more fun and challenging than just sitting on a bike that's doesn't go anywhere.
Primarily there are 8 punches used. Those with a boxing background will know them as 'jab', 'cross', 'hook', etc while those experiencing Boxing through the medium of Boxercise® will become familiar with the numbering system 1 through 8. Boxercise® as a fitness discipline was established in the UK in 1992 and has trained literally thousands of instructors in many different venues across the globe. A source study from 2006 calculated that over 1.2 million people took part in Boxercise® classes, just in the UK.
Having successfully adapted age old training principles to engage novice fitness participants it's easy to see why the discipline is so popular as it provides a fun, addictive, safe, stress busting exercise suitable for all ages and levels of ability.
The benefits of regular exercise are numerous but to name just a few:
✓ healthier lifestyle
✓ feel good factor
✓ social (meet new friends)
✓ weight loss
Boxercise for schools
Exercise isn't only good for your child's body; it also helps shape their mind. With concerns over child fitness and obesity, Boxercise can provide the perfect answer for exercise sessions that are great fun and engaging especially for those children who don't enjoy the competitive nature of team sports. We operate classes from our Luton based ACS MAGFA studio and on site at schools and scout/guide groups.
