Piloxing, a fusion of boxing and pilates, just might be the next fitness craze to sweep the nation in 2010. This unique blend of aerobic activity is being billed as the “Swedish Powerhouse Workout” as its creator, Viveca Jensen is a former body builder from Sweden.
“There is no other exercise that contains two extremes. The powerful feeling of boxing, throwing solid punches, then transferring your body movements into Pilates and feeling like a ballerina, both are extreme workouts, yet both share the common ground of working from the ‘core’ region, the ‘core’ is the heart of both”, said Jensen, Creator of Piloxing.
