Aqua boxing in the shallow end of the pool using boqs
The zen of BOQUA. Low to moderate intensity, focusing on core and body control, balance and proprioception.
Aqua boxing interval training. Great cardio workout with use of resistance boqs or gloves utilized so as to keep it as a no impact workout.
Alternating between shallow water interval exercises and deeper water cardio, this class works to both tone and trim. All exercises can be adjusted for ability and swimming level. Once you start, you’ll have so much fun that you won’t want the class to end!
Participants walk and perform other exercises with and against the current – walking forwards, backwards, sideways, on your toes, and on your heels.
