All About Boxilates

Love Pilates but want to kick it up a notch?

We’ve got the perfect class for you — Boxilates. It’s dynamic, exciting, challenging, and offers exceptional results.

And, it’s downright fun.

Here, we’ll cover everything you need to know about Boxilates, including the benefits of Boxilates, what to expect for your first class, and who Boxilates is ideal for.


What Is Boxilates?

Boxilates is an interval-style workout that fuses the fast-paced movements of boxing with some Pilates core sequences. While the combination of boxing and Pilates may sound a little surprising, these two workouts complement each other beautifully.

In class, you will use boxing gloves and pads to perform a variety of boxing drills with a partner. In between the upbeat boxing drills, various Pilates exercises are seamlessly weaved throughout.

Together, the functional movements of Pilates combined with the heart-pumping boxing action to form a creative, high-intensity, full-body workout.


Benefits of Boxilates

Between the faster pace, functional movements, and challenging exercises, Boxilates is excellent for:

  • Reducing stress and calming down an overactive mind
  • Getting strength and cardio workout all in one
  • Enhancing the mind-body connection
  • Improving posture
  • Increasing flexibility
  • Providing an all-over-body workout (seriously, you’ll probably notice muscles hurting the day after class that you’ve never worked before)
  • Improving coordination and muscle control
  • Providing a natural energy boost
  • Improving muscle tone and sculpting long, lean muscles
  • Building powerful muscles in the arms, back, and shoulders
  • Mental empowerment


Is Boxilates Right for You?

If you need to work through some stress, Boxilates is your class. Between the rapid boxing drills, challenging sequences, and intense need for focus, you won’t be able to think about anything but the next move.

Boxilates is also great for individuals who easily lose motivation or get bored doing the same movements over and over. You’ll never know what to expect from a class, or even what to expect for the next move! If your workouts have been feeling stale and your motivation has been lagging, we highly recommend the creative, exciting vibe that Boxilates has to offer.

Along with the varied movements and sequences, Boxilates offers the encouraging vibe of a group class. If you thrive on positive energy, you’ll love the atmosphere of Boxilates.

For instance, you can keep your intensity lower until you gain more strength and endurance. Our instructors will work with you to help you get the best workout possible in a safe manner.


What To Expect From a Boxilates Class

Typically, a Boxilates class will start with some warm-up Pilates or mobility exercises to get the muscles primed for the workout ahead. Other warm-up moves, such as shadow boxing, plank sequences, and squats will ensure your joints, muscles, and mind are ready to go.

From there, expect to incorporate a variety of Pilates exercises (you can learn more about our Mat Pilates classes here). As you move through the workout, you’ll perform boxing drills, cardio intervals, and additional Pilates exercises.

Between the heart-racing boxing drills and Pilates exercises, you’ll enjoy the benefits of endorphins that accompany a great cardio release. You’ll also feel mobilized and strengthened from the core out.

As with any of our classes, our instructors will go out of their way to ensure you feel welcome. We place a heavy focus on injury prevention, meaning our instructors are always ready to educate on proper form and provide modifications if necessary.
