Piloxing is a unique mix of pilates and boxing. It was said to be invented by Swedish dancer and celebrity trainer Viveca Jensan. It is reportedly a fat blasting and muscle toning exercise for women, aiming to attain a sleek, sexy and powerful self image. It is a popular choice for women who are already into pilates exercise. Because of its benefits, it is said to become very popular among the celebrities and slowly spread towards women with daily jobs and home makers.

VPilates stated it is a training institute specializing in piloxing. It supposedly has instructional routines on daily and weekly basis for the members. The institute reportedly also released a dvd ($19.95) with all the training and instruction on piloxing. This dvd is suppose to be good for people who cannot attend the VPilates piloxing training session at its studio.

VPilates claims to also offer courses to become a piloxing instructor. It is suppose to be best for people who have existing pilates experience. This 9-hr course states it teaches you the basic foundation and training methodology of piloxing and provides you with all the tools and resources you will need to teach a full length piloxing Level 1 class.

List of Ingredients

Instructor or instructional DVD, piloxing gloves, piloxing wear and towels.

Product Features

Piloxing is supposed to blend the power, speed and agility of boxing with the sculpting and flexibility of pilates. In addition to Pilates and boxing movements, the exercise also states it incorporates the use of weighted gloves which add to the workout by toning the arms and maximizing cardiovascular health. The dvds are suppose to be easy to learn and claim that they can be used at the comfort of home without going to any piloxing training institute.

Advantages

.

  • Supposedly complete cardio vascular workout

 

Disadvantages

.

  • Costly start up cost

 

.

  • Cannot ( shouldn’t ) be done without instructor or instructional dvd

    .

  • Not a fitting exercise for all body types and weights.

 

Conclusion

Piloxing is supposed to be for people with “go-out and exercise” kind. It is suppose to be a complete substitute of any cardio vascular exercise on planet. While it is recommended exercise for women with moderate / highly toned body, who want to now, move to next level, it doesn’t promise anything. It claims it can be started at home, along with an instructional dvd and few simple piloxing equipments. I would personally pass on the piloxing as it is quite expensive and exercise is exercise with or without spending hundreds of dollars.

    If Piloxing is a offered at your gym, I would suggest trying it out. It is a lot of fun…I go two times a week and it is the class I look forward to the most. I have noticed my arms are more toned, my posture is a lot better, cardio endurance is better, and core strength has improved. I am going to get the gloves soon. Others in my class love using the gloves and can see better definition in thier arms.

    I am not sure when this article was written, but I completely disagree. I have seen great result with piloxing. Also, I am not sure what start up costs you are referring to. The gloves are $24 and the DVD was $20. Also, classes at my gym were a $100 for 10 classes. So you’re in it for $144. Last time I checked any of the diet pills you’re pushing on this site will cost you way more than that in the long run and most likely won’t give you results without exercise.

    I completely disagree with your conclusion! I think Piloxing is SUCH a great method of weight loss and not expensive at all! For those who don’t want to go to the studio you can purchase the DVD and gloves, both a 1 time fee, and you can do it at home at your own level! Viveca is amazing at explaining each move and emphasizing going at your own pace! I have lost 30lbs to date with Piloxing and never has any other work out ever actually made me WANT to work out! I actually have a blast doing Piloxing and sweat at the same time! Highly recommend this to EVERYONE!!!
