BEGINNER ADULT BOXING FITNESS

Rather than actual combat, the
YMCA Boxing Program will focus
one simple concept: proper
form and technique. Boxing
often incorporates all the skill-related components of
fitness; agility, balance, coordination, speed, power, and
reaction time. Therefore boxing workouts do not just
involve the shoulders and upper body but also connect
the feet, legs, hips and core to create fluid and powerful
movements. Each progressive week will focus on the
induction of a new technical skill that students will link
together, like the links of a chain, with previous skills
until the final week where they can utilize everything
they have learned. 8 weeks. 60 min.

ADVANCED ADULT BOXING FITNESS

In the Advanced Boxing Program members will be able
to further strengthen the skill sets learned in the
Beginner course. Members will utilize both offensive and
defensive skills to piece together complex combinations
of punches with extra emphasis placed on proper form
and technique. Workouts will gradually become more and
more complicated as the session continues. Both upper
body and cardiovascular endurance will be pushed to
their limits with this intense and fast-paced program.
It is recommended that members first complete the
beginner program or have prior boxing experience.
8 weeks. 60 min.
