Piloxing: what is it?

A practical dance suitable for anyone in which each lesson lasts one hour . There are stages: let's find out which ones!

The first 5 minutes are used to warm up, then the heart rate is increased and the muscles activated. Then several blocks of about 4 minutes each are made; during this time, exercises inspired by boxing or pilates are performed. The last 4 minutes, on the other hand, are practiced with dance step exercises and then conclude with stretching. With Piloxing it is possible to train the whole body, from the abdomen to the legs.

Piloxing: the benefits of activity

The benefits of this discipline are numerous, as it is an activity in which the whole body is worked. The buttocks are firmed , weight is lost and the arms are toned; moreover, it is also a way to let off steam inside and have fun despite the fatigue . The subject will have the task of balancing the posture and giving greater strength to his body, and therefore to his muscles.

In addition, the training is practiced without shoes but with non-slip socks and at the end of each workout you must absolutely say goodbye with the motto "Sleek, sexy and powerful" which literally stands for "Elegant, sensual and strong"!

The variants of Piloxing

As with almost all disciplines there are variations to the classic Piloxing. They are:
