What is boxercise?
A fitness class which incorporates a number of boxing moves and techniques without the physical contact.
Who is it for?
It is certainly not just for men. It is actually popular with both men and women.
Men are usually put off aerobics classes because they're worried about their lack of co-ordination. Here there is a level of co-ordination but it's restricted to boxing movements.
Women love it too. The only thing you actually punch is thin air and it is a great way of toning your body and letting off steam at the same time.
