The benefits of taking a boxing class are endless and range from increased lung power, increased strength, to better overall conditioning. A true two-for-one cardio and strength workout, time spent with the heavy bag is known to improve overall fitness, for anyone at any age (and not to mention, it blasts mega calories and relieves stress! ).
That said, there is good news for Jacksonville, FL members. Bailey’s Health and Fitness: “Boxing with Baileys”, the newest addition to the group class, just dropped on its members this week, and it’s much more different than your typical pugilist program.
You’ll never be bored with this high-energy, action-packed, fitness-packed new boxing class. No more joining specialized gyms to get a killer boxing workout. Everything you need to be in the best shape of your life is here! Known as Jacksonville’s top health club since 1981, Bailey’s Gym has 17 locations in the Northeast Florida region extending to Brunswick, GA. And with over 1,800 group fitness classes per month, Boxing with Baileys debuts this week.
It’s a mix between an intense and full boxing session followed by full body conditioning exercises. The results are Mayweather-like conditioning. A closer look shows that 75% of training time is spent on boxing, while the rest of the time is spent on resistance and bodyweight training.
Using authentic boxing moves on the heavy bag, along with boxing-exclusive conditioning drills, members will increase overall strength, cardiovascular endurance, speed, agility, and core stability; while learning the ropes of proper boxing form and hand wrapping techniques to get the most out of their boxing experience.
During a session, members will be guided by professionally trained boxing coaches who are there to motivate, encourage and help improve practitioners’ boxing skills, thereby increasing confidence and ability.
Classes are designed and led by trainers who are knowledgeable and have hands-on experience with this type of training helping to shed body fat, relieve stress and build the confidence they need in the sport of boxing.
This full body workout redefines the way you train and gives members more class options than traditional group fitness classes!
