BAM BOX AND MOVE® IS A FUN, ACTION PACKED FITNESS WORKOUT! THAT INCLUDES:
◊ BAM Combination & Pad work
◊ Adaptive Interval Training
◊ Body Sculpting / Core Conditioning
◊ A Symmetrical Postural Toning System
Unlike, other established boxing themed classes BAM focuses on your symmetrical development opposed to the traditional solitary stance and techniques of previous established boxing themed classes. BAM promotes modern day disciplines to develop and enhance:
◊ Cognitive Processes (such as hand-eye co-ordination and reaction efficiency)
◊ Postural Alignment & Stability (Body Strength and Balance)
What does a typical class involve?
Each BAM workout will consist of:
◊ Dynamic Warm-up
This will include a demonstration of the boxing combinations to be used in the following sessions. The Warm-up will raise your core temperature and you’re your muscles suppler in preparation for the class ahead. The Warm-up can last between 5-10 minutes and will be delivered at a moderate pace.
◊ Phase #1 (Pad Work)
In this phase there are assigned combinations to perform in a neutral/open stance. This helps us to focus on core stability, balance and postural alignment, hand eye co-ordination, speed and agility. With this in mind we encourage momentum opposed to power shots, which in-turn deliver a higher cardiovascular output than that achieved in other many other boxing workouts.
◊ Phase #2 (Adaptive Interval Training)
The interval training section enables the participant to go all out, giving 100% through quick, intense bursts of sequential manoeuvres, followed by short recovery periods. Each set will have a number of exercises within a set duration. This type of training fires up and maintains your heart-rate, while burning more fat in less time. This phase uses a system of varied intensity workouts which alternate with short rest periods. Options will be offered to suit all levels of participants from novice to advance.
◊ Phase #3 (Body Conditioning & Deep Stretch)
Elements of this phase derive from Contrology and mainly focuses on technique, posture and alignment while being performed to moderate paced music. This phase is complete with a sequence of stretching manoeuvres to which encourages an easier return to homeostasis.
