Having spent the better part of my adult life trying to maintain my weight and engage in a “healthy” lifestyle, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting fitness classes. I have two main criteria, they must not be boring and they have to show results. The latest fitness program to hit the gym circuit is called Piloxing. Not so sure about the name, but as an ardent advocate of pilates, and knowing that boxing really will kick your …, I thought I would look into it.
As the name indicates, Piloxing is a fitness program that blends pilates and boxing. It also incorporates dance with interval training to burn the maximum amount of calories and increase stamina. It was developed by the Swedish-born Viveca Jensen, a former professional dancer, who is also a trained pilates instructor. She came up with the idea of Piloxing as it combines her passions of dance and fitness. She says, “At the core of Piloxing is the principle that women are powerful and can boost their self-esteem by taking charge of their own health.” Sounds good to me. Having started in California (of course), it is now taking over the gyms of England. You can read more about it by going to the Daily Mail UK link below.
