With fitness being a major part of a lot of peoples’ day to day lives, last week, I tried out a boxercise class at Boxercise Lincoln.

Based on Dixon Way and owned by Jack Craig, Boxercise Lincoln includes a range of activities, from Boxercise Circuits and Personal Training, to Boxing Technique Fight Training and White Collar Training.

Prior to the class, I had never tried boxing or anything remotely related to it, but I can definitely say it is certainly ideal for anyone looking to be physically challenged, but to equally have a lot of fun.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by owner Jack, who talked me through what a typical boxercise class entails; I was delighted to find out that people of all ages and abilities attend the sessions.

To begin the session Jack lead a warm-up exercise to set us up for the intense work-out that was to follow.

I was put with a partner to practice some general boxing, which I gradually became more confident with, and she kindly talked me through the logistics of the partner work, such as always starting with my left leg and hand.

I had completely underestimated not only the amount of focus needed for the discipline, but my ability to sustain a good stamina throughout the whole thing.

The session progressed into a circuit training exercise, and this was what I found most physically challenging as it was difficult to remain consistent with the effort and energy I was putting in.

Each group was set to do a specific exercise for around thirty seconds, such as free punches on the bag, burpees, or general practice with your partner, doing a minute of exercise before moving to the next station.

All in all, the session was really great fun, and the class had a welcoming feel, it is something I would definitely do again and would recommend to others looking to get a good workout whilst socialising in a class environment.

It is perfect for people of all abilities to join in, and Jack also spoke about the family classes he runs, which is a great way to get the kids involved.
