Group Training

IMG_0973

 

New research suggests that group exercise unleashes a flood of chemicals in the brain, triggering the same responses that have made collective activities from dancing and laughter to religion itself such enduring aspects of human culture. For some (but not all) people, finding workout buddies could help turn fitness into a pleasant addiction.

BKFitness is the best stress buster around, is one of the most effective forms of cross-training available today.

 

A BKF class can incorporate many components, depending on the strengths and personality of the BKF Instructor taking the class. So every class is different and exciting.

 

One of the favourite class formats is a circuit style class including boxing style stations, such as the Focus Pads, Punch Bag, Skipping Ropes, Medicine Ball and other more general exercises found in a good circuit class.

 

Focus Pads are the closest you’ll ever get to hitting your partner for real, often used by personal trainers as the intensity of the workout can be varied from beginner to advanced. The pads allow the BKF Instructor one-to one contact with each person in their class every time! How many fitness classes can claim that? It’s no wonder that the retention rate of BKF class participants is so high.

 

Working the punchbag, a major component of any boxer’s regimen, combines cardio work, strength training, timing, balance and boxing skills into one fitness activity. Hitting the bag is a fast high rep workout that builds muscular endurance as well as strength. Hitting a heavy bag is similar to weight training in principle, because it offers resistance.

 

Another favourite is the BKF Aerobics format. This uses power moves to punch up your heart rate. Every hook and jab puts your rectus abdominis, obliques and lower back to work. Simply punching works the biceps, triceps and deltoids to give that upper body a toned look.

 

BKF is the latest and best exercise to empower women and get men back into the studio.

 

The workout uses the entire body. Cardiovascularly you burn more calories in an hour than using a stairclimber.

BKF combines use of both aerobic and anaerobic energy systems with the systematic recruitment of both fast and slow twitch muscle fibres in a manner that not only ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination, balance and timing.

BKF classes are always fun, energetic and addictive. Correct technique takes practice and good instruction.
