The hottest new fitness craze has reached our shores – piloxing. With claims to be the greatest cardio fusion workout, incorporating cutting edge research and fitness techniques to burn maximum calories, build lean muscles and increase stamina, we look at what exactly is involved in a piloxing class. 

Basically, the program uniquely blends the power, speed, and agility of boxing with the targeted sculpting and flexibility of Pilates. These techniques are also supplemented by the use of weighted gloves, further toning the arms and maximizing cardiovascular health. Add exhilarating dance moves and you have a muscle-toning, fat-burning workout that will make you feel physically and mentally empowered!

Piloxing is the brainchild of Swedish dancer and celebrity trainer Viveca Jensen and is the culmination of a mission to physically and mentally empower women through fitness as well as create a unique exercise program that instructors worldwide can embrace together. Viveca’s celebrity clients include Hilary Duff, Alexis Bledel, Vanessa Hudgens. and Emmy Rossum.

Piloxing launches at Virgin Active Health Clubs on August 4.
