This is piloxing with the use of a barre. It is a variation of piloxing, an interval workout that combines pilates, boxing and dance.
Since Swedish dancer and trainer Viveca Jensen created piloxing in the United States several years ago, interest in the workout has grown.
“In Piloxing Barre, it’s just pilates and boxing,” said Ms Rasidah Caudal, 39, a freelance fitness instructor and piloxing master trainer.
“The original piloxing is like interval training. Boxing is high intensity, pilates is core exercises and dance adds the fun element. I like all three,” she said.
“With Piloxing Barre, I can push myself more. I can engage more of my muscles with the help of the barre, like bending lower and raising my legs higher.”
Piloxing Barre classes started this month at the dance studio in Jurong East Sports Centre.
