Read on to discover the many benefits of taking part in box fit sessions as well as learning how you can gain access to the classes which are on offer at The Box Health & Fitness Studio which is located in a scenic countryside location on the grounds of The Kilnwick Percy Resort in East Yorkshire, just 18 miles away from York city centre.
Box Fit Classes Explained
Box fit is a fantastic way to maintain or improve fitness no matter your current level of activity. With a set up similar to a circuit class, Box Fit incorporates boxing-specific movements including crunches, punches and footwork to provide a fun and functional workout that will leave your metabolism boosted hours after the workout has finished. Box fit is a great way to experience all the discipline and fitness training of a boxer, without the prospect of getting a right cross on the nose or chin!
Tough day at Work? Focus your energy as you release your aggression in a controlled manner on the pads or as you gather the energy to complete one more shuttle run or one more push up at your exercise station. Popular with both men and women, Box Fit is a fun way to boost your fitness levels and overall sense of wellbeing.
Box Fit Class Format
Box fit classes are set out in a similar fashion to a traditional circuit class. With ‘exercise stations’ set out around the studio. Each exercise station is used to perform a specific exercise such as press ups or hitting pads. One of our friendly instructors will then tell you when to stop or switch the pads when working with a partner.
After each exercise is completed, for around 1 minute, you get chance to catch your breath as you move to the next exercise-station. Beginners are encouraged to extend the rest period to suit their own levels of fitness and work at an intensity that they are comfortable with. This can be done by moving along to the next exercise station, but waiting an additional number of seconds before starting.
Class formats do vary week to week but will normally utilise hitting pads, shadow boxing, push ups and short sprints. There is no sparring or hitting of anybody! Which helps to keep classes fun, enjoyable and suitable for virtually everyone.
Benefits of Box Fit
Box fit classes have been shown to offer a wide range of health and fitness benefits, including:
- Increased core strength;
- Increased muscular endurance;
- Improved cardiovascular health;
- Improved co-ordination;
- Improved agility.
In addition to the above, studies have also shown that Box Fit can have a positive impact on your general levels of self-confidence as well producing a heightened sense of wellbeing.
The psychological benefits are further enhanced by the levels of social interaction which are offered in our classes, with participants being warm and friendly with a community feel very much in evidence amongst our gym members. This is perhaps enhanced by the warm and friendly manner of our highly trained instructors who aim to educate and improve fitness levels in a fun environment which makes you want to come back.
Here at The KP Resort, we don’t just want to make you thinner or fitter; we are also aiming to help improve your mental health too with our range of classes.
