Looking for something new to lift your fitness levels that will make you break a sweat whilst grinning ear to ear? Barre Box is a high intensity workout combining the best of all things we love most, from standing Pilates work, short cardio boxing intervals, to dance moves all in a ballet class! Punch your way through cardio intervals and take a jab at non-traditional dance and core movements with this 50 minute cardio Barre Boxing workout.
Boxing is an effective way to get the heart rate up and burn fat without having to run 10kms or do back breaking boot camps. Boxing will get your heart rate into your target heart rate zone improving your cardiovascular endurance and improve your overall physical fitness levels. Your cardiorespiratory system and aerobic energy systems become more efficient at delivering oxygen to the working muscles and converting carbohydrate and fat to energy. Who doesn’t want their body to do that?
It uses the basic techniques of boxing in a fun environment and increases your strength, muscle tone and cardio fitness. A great all-over workout that also helps to reduce stress. Take out the stresses of your normal life in a safe, controlled environment. It will leave you calm and relaxed and ready to tackle whatever curveball life throws at you next.
Each class takes a variety of formats to keep you excited and motivated all year round. Mastering the techniques involved in boxing often makes people feel confident. The better your technique, the more force you can put into your punch.
Barre Box will also improve your co-ordination and body awareness. Moving all your limbs at the same time requires a good connection between your brain and your body, creating new neural pathways so the brain gets a workout too! With patience and practice, focus and discipline you will transfer this benefits into your other classes including Reformer Pilates and Yoga.
So now you are ready to try a class what should you bring? Definitely water, a towel and boxing gloves if you have them. Check the Active Mind Body timetable for our next Box Barre class and come along to break a sweat that will leave a smile on your face for hours!
