Aero boxing is a new fitness regime that combines the techniques of boxing and aerobics. A new and improved, 21st century boxercise.
It's a challenging and enjoyable way of exercising and the benefits of aero boxing are numerous. They include fat burning and improved flexibility, to name but two.
No matter what your level of physical fitness is, you can get involved. Aero boxing entails intervals of both aerobic and strength training, so you can control your limits. You can take part if you are a complete workout novice or boxing pro.
It is is similar to shadow boxing as both involve boxing jabs and techniques that don't involve any physical contact with anyone else.

This combination of cardio makes it a great method for tackling those weight loss goals. It's this exercises constant movement that makes for it's effective nature.
