Piloxing: Sleek. Sexy. Powerful. DVD Review

Piloxing: Sleek. Sexy. Powerful.
Viveca Jensen, 2009

This is a 62 minute boxing & pilates fusion workout. Viveca works out in a cute black & pink boxing gym with a  group of background exercisers. Some workout with shoes, some without. You wont need any equipment for this workout but you can wear weighted gloves to amp up the intensity as do many of the participants of this dvd. The dvd is chaptered.

After a quick warmup you move into the body of the workout. Viveca does a great job of blending boxing with pilates & ballet movements. You perform a variety of standing pilates/ ballet style exercises alternated with boxing combos and conclude with a pilates floor work section & a cooldown.

Standing Exercises include: punch combos (Viveca often adds in lower body movements to up the cardio), static lunge holds, standing isometric lower body work, lots of good balance work, arm circles, tricep pushups, punch combos w/ skiing, speedbag, salsa, fast feet, standing oblique crunches, etc. Floor work includes donkey kick variations, mini pushups, the hundred, punching torso twist, etc.

I would rate this a lower intermediate workout. Viveca includes a good number of reps- enough to feel the burn but not so many to "rep you to death." The workout has a great positive energy, great music, smooth transitions, fun but not overly complicated choreography, and is very unique! Viveca refers to being sexy, and feminine but strong in the workout. I received this dvd to review.
