Have you seen the new boxing equipment at The J? Located in the lower gym, the boxing dummies are used for Better Body Boxing, a new group fitness class offered at The J on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and Fridays at 5:30 p.m.
The class is designed for participants that want to get a high-intensity workout, with lower impact on the knees, hips and feet. The workout includes low impact boxing drills, metabolic conditioning and strength and core work.
The boxing equipment is also used for Rock Steady Boxing, a monthly program for men and women diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Boxing works to help enhance people with the disease’s daily life by moving the body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine.
