Let’s get this out of the way: I’m not a fan of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) nor am I a boxer. But a boxing-inspired cardio class — housed in a club-like setting filled with high energy tunes, tripped-out neon lights and water-filled aqua training bags — sounds like a seriously ‘badass’ fitness challenge I was totally game for. So when Box Office Fitness, founded by ACE certified fitness trainers Nerissa Assudani and Abel Koh, invited us down for a trial session of their signature 45-minute class, I put my best game face on.
Whether you’re an exercise newbie or a fitness buff, you’d definitely be motivated to keep up with the rest through 10 three-minute rounds of adrenaline-packed workout split between the aqua bag and strength training exercises. Speed may be everything when you’re in the groove, but remember: always maintain proper form or risk suffering later — your muscles will ache in all the wrong places.
