An Overview of Boxercise
Classes can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve shadow-boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punchbags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. Most boxercise classes are aimed at men and women of all ages and fitness standards. As no class involves the physical hitting of an opponent, it is a fun, challenging and safe workout.

Prices vary, but generally start from around pounds 5 for a single class, up to pounds 75 a month for unlimited classes with professional boxers.
Adaptations and Equipment
Silk shorts and flashy robes are not required, but you will need a pair of trainers, leggings or shorts and a light, loose top. If training in a boxing club, you may be tempted to invest in a pair of boxing shoes (around £25), but boxing gloves, punchbags and skipping ropes are generally supplied.
