Yesterday I had a major breakthrough, if you have been following my GET FIT for 2012 series you will know that up until a month ago I did not nor had I ever worked out before; gym membership…? Pah!!! Well now, I have a gym membership at Nuffield Health which I’m using to the fullest, (I’ll be putting up my personal workout regime aka #cyrenasworkoutplan on here soon) and I’m looking into external classes/boot camp sessions. I tend to workout on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (if I don’t keep strict days I won’t go); as this week was full of bank holidays I spent one of my ‘workout days’ in bed! So, back to my breakthrough yesterday – I did 45 mins of cardio at the gym in the morning, then in the evening I went to Boxit Bootcamp! TWO BOUTS OF EXERCISE IN ONE DAY PEOPLE!!! I’m truly growing in this department!
One of the things I’ve always wanted since I was a child was a punching bag, take from that what you will, but you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to attend a Boxit 2 the Beat class in Brixton. It’s a non stop, 1 hour, intense pad circuit class with a live DJ spinning house tunes so you can literally Boxit 2 the Beat! They say you can burn up to 1,000 calories in one hit and it definitely felt like it; the class has you sweating buckets! The instructors have you bouncing around, punching pads, doing squats, lunges, crunches – everything to work out your entire body. The best bit for me was the stretching at the end because that’s when I knew it was almost over! Just kidding, well not really…I’m feeling the effects as I type this but I would definitely go again. I’ve been told the outdoor class is great too! I recommend everyone gives this class a try at least once, you’ll be hooked. The best stress relief!
