PiloxingFitness: What is it?
Piloxing is high-intensity interval training that combines elements of Pilates, boxing, and dance in a group training format. It was invented and conceived by Swedish-born VIP trainer and fitness expert Viveca Jensen. He can recall many years of training and experience in dance, Pilates, and boxing training, as well as bodybuilding. The workout combines intense, grueling boxing moves for added strength and energy, with body-shaping and posture elements of Pilates that gracefully strengthen and lengthen muscles.
What does Piloxing Fitness provide, what can I achieve with training?
The benefits of the elements of Pilates are the building of long, lean but powerful muscles along with an improvement in mobility as well as in body control and coordination of movement. The boxing elements give you defined arm and back muscles, they are fun, they give you energy and help you blow off steam and release endorphins. Dancing clearly brings fun, graceful movements and endurance. This successful combination will leave you breathless and prevent you from getting bored. Give it a try and spice up your training plan with a dynamic and refreshing variety.
In short, it can be said that intensive training increases your physical condition through its elements and also improves your mental condition and mood. You gain energy, shape and tone your entire body and significantly improve your resistance and movement control. Individual problem areas such as “flabby arms” are specifically addressed and the tight butt also comes to the fore. The back acquires a beautiful muscular structure and let’s not forget: a beautiful back can also delight.
Do you exercise at home or at the gym?
Exercising in the gym with piloxing gloves
It is clear that training in group classes in the gym has several advantages. The music and group dynamics add a great fun factor and this is very motivating to persevere and stay tuned. In addition, the trainer is present and keeps an eye on you. So he or she can give direct instructions or feedback and can correct you if you don’t make a move correctly. All movements can be modified for different individual fitness levels. Therefore, it is suitable for both beginners and advanced fitness users. Also in this case, the trainer can give you direct and competent instructions and advice. The trainer also lends her the piloxing gloves at the gym, which she can use there for free and therefore does not necessarily have to buy them herself.
exercise alone at home
However, if you still prefer to train at home or in the garden, alone or with your partner or with friends, Piloxing fitness videos or DVDs are also available in stores. This way you get training instructions and you have the opportunity to try the training without having to go to the gym or the group.
Tip: If you want to train at home, get a large mirror so you can see that your movements are being done correctly. In Pilates in particular, the correct execution of the movement is the highest priority. Provide an accident and injury free training environment to minimize the likelihood of injury.
What do I need for the training?
You don’t need a lot of equipment for piloxing training. Tight-fitting functional training clothing and non-slip shoes are recommended. You can also train barefoot if you prefer and feel more comfortable that way. There are also special piloxing training gloves available on the market that have a built-in light weight. They intensify boxing movements by increasing resistance. In the gym, these are usually given to the training group before the course. Otherwise, all you need is a serving of good humor combined with the desire to exercise and train, which can also come from this cool workout on its own.
What precautions should I take?
Because this is high-intensity interval training, if you have a medical condition or chronic illness, or are taking medication, you should talk to your doctor beforehand to determine if this is right for you. As with any workout, you should always pay attention to how your own body feels and pay attention to how your body reacts and responds to the specific movement stimulus. In short, see if it is something you enjoy and enjoy because that is when you get the most out of it.
