Piloxing is the brainchild of Swedish fitness expert, Viveca Jensen. It uses a combination of Pilates, boxing and dance moves to deliver a high-intensity interval workout. In addition to an improved cardiovascular fitness, Piloxing builds a stronger core, tones muscles, sculpts the body, improves balance, corrects posture and burns fat...indeed an ideal workout.
I have Minnie to thank for introducing such an enjoyable exercise. Every Monday, she takes us through 40 minutes of leg lifts, flat backs, standing side crunches and boxing punches like undercuts and hooks, followed by 20 minutes of floor exercises like abdominal crunches and butt sculpting.
Sadly, this Monday was Minnie's last class at SculptFitness. She will be returning to her hometown, Kuala Lumpur, to further her studies. Piloxing classes at SculptFitness, thankfully, will continue under the tutelage of another instructress. But I will always remember Minnie as the sweet and cheerful girl who brought a whole new dimension to my exercise regime.
