What is it?
Piloxing is a cardio interval workout fused with elements of boxing, Pilates and dance steps. Although, Pilates movements to dance music may seem odd at first, it’s actually a motivating combination. Firstly, it uses core strengthening from Pilates and combines this with upper cuts and jabs from boxing, and then adds in dance moves from ballet, hip hop or even salsa. This powerhouse workout has been specifically designed to tone different muscle areas while sculpting your figure to the max. Therefore, it’s a workout that’s accessible to everyone and you don’t need to have any specific technique to try it. Additionally, Piloxing stands for empowering women to gain confidence by training together, so you can train and feel confident in your own skin. It’s the new, hot way to keep fit!
The benefits of a hard core Piloxing workout are pretty impressive. Not only does it make your arms firmer from weighted arm movements, but your core gets a harsh workout of its own. Having a strong core benefits your posture, alignment and helps support strength and flexibility. Plus, Pilates movements strengthen your muscles without bulking ,so you can get that sleek toned look. Additionally, an hour of interval training is a mega fat burner so you could shred well over 500 calories, you know what they say – the more you put in the more you get out.
