Local Fitness Champion – Jennifer’s Boxercise & Abs Class!

Here’s a video of our Local Fitness Champion, Jennifer after her first Boxercise & Abs class at AMPT Fitness in Southgate.

Boxercise is an exercise class based on the training concepts boxers use to keep fit. Classes can take a variety of formats but a typical one may involve shadow-boxing, skipping, hitting pads, kicking punchbags, press-ups, shuttle-runs and sit-ups. Most boxercise classes are aimed at men and women of all ages and fitness standards. As no class involves the physical hitting of an opponent, it is a fun, challenging and safe workout.

Abdominal Training – the importance of strengthening the abdominal (or “abs”) cannot be overemphasized. The functions of the mid-section include flexion, lateral flexion and rotation of the torso as well as flexion of the hip. Collectively, the muscles of this region keep the abdominal organs compressed and assist in forced expiration (as during vigorous exercise).  Therefore, virtually all sports require the use of the abdominals to some degree. In addition, having a strong mid-section will remove stress that tends to build up in our lower backs from being sedentary.

We hope that her fitness and eating plan will encourage you and keep you motivated. If you have any questions for Jennifer, you can send us an email to or just send us a PM on our Facebook page
