Great trainers are always looking for ingenious way to keep workouts interesting and beneficial to their clients. One of the once that is currently receiving quite some attention is boxercise. While most enthusiasts might not be very conversant with it, is a type of workout that uses boxing movements incorporated with other types of workouts to create a fun and exciting combo.
Even though this type of workout is relatively new, its benefits are already self-explanatory and a great deal of clients and gym lovers have expressed their satisfaction with the routine.
There is no question that boxing is a very aggressive sport. Boxercise even though a little mild is not anything less. It make for a great workout for you to dump all your aggression and frustrations into something that is more constructive to your body. Boxercise involves a lot of punching, punching moves and motions. If your aggression is concentrated on completing the workout, you’re assured of a positive outcome.
Makes you stronger
Like any workout you might have done in the past, if done consistently, boxercise helps to build muscle and improve muscle tone. Also, because it is more aggressive the results are more appealing and in some cases might appear earlier. The routine also features some fast paced hooks, upper cuts and even swoops that engage the shoulders, back, your core and even the arms. It makes tightening and toning with each punch a reality.
The lower body is not forgotten in this case. The glutes and hops are tasked with pivoting and balancing the body and moving alongside a tight core makes that goal even harder hence improving muscle build.
It works your cardio as well
If you usually have to take two different gym classes to take care of your cardio and any other needs that you might have, with boxercise, you don’t have to. The routine is pretty intense and fast-paced. That allows it to work both on your cardio while it also works on your muscle tone and build. It could potentially save you from having to invest in a second class and at best, you will have great results while investing half the time.
It’s for everyone
The most beautiful thing about boxercise is that it is for everyone. Of course you don’t expect all the participants to operate at the same level. But, with a professional and friendly trainer like Scott, you will definitely fit in. It can be done by both men and women and even those with low esteem. It is a great way to vent while making a positive impact on your body and because it does not require superior athletic ability, it is kind to the beginners as well.
It is affordable
This is not one of those workouts that requires you to get a bunch of expensive equipment before you can try it out. With boxercise, the only thing that you might have to buy is a pair of boxing gloves. You can use the usual trunks and tank tops for the training.
There are plenty of benefits that are associated with boxercise and these five just highlight the most notable ones. The routine is not only best suited for those people that would love to pack an extra punch in their muscle. It can also be a great idea for someone that has balance issues and is looking for a fun way to work on that.
