We’re so excited. Today on Yahoo Sports News, they talked about the celebrities that LOVE Piloxing. Why? Because we kick butt’s into shape and create Sleek, Sexy and Powerful people. And enjoy every moment of it.
Piloxing is a combination of Pilates and boxing. The creator of this workout, Viveca Jensen, is a previous body builder from the country of Sweden. Hence, this is why Piloxing is being called the “Swedish Powerhouse Workout.”
This workout allows participants, mainly women, to feel strong and graceful at the same time; it is quite a yin yang type combination. Watch a preview of Piloxing here to see it for yourself.
Some people, such as Judy Kirkwood, are even stating that Piloxing is even more enjoyable than Zumba.
Will Piloxing be the next big fitness craze?
Celebrities participating in Piloxing
#1 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff has been enjoying Piloxing since 2010, so it is no wonder she is being called the “Piloxing Princess.” Photos reveal Duff leaving a Piloxing class wearing a sweatshirt with the word “PILOXING” on the back. Hilary is staying true to this combo of Pilates and boxing because she is spotted heading to class again in 2011.
#2 Haylie Duff
Hilary’s big sister enjoys Piloxing, too, and says, “Viveca and Piloxing has totally transformed my body! It’s a positive and motivating environment with great energy. I’m totally addicted!”
There seems to be a trend among Disney stars and Piloxing. Vanessa Hudgens admits to being sore after her first Piloxing class in an interview with SELF Magazine. She also said, “You’re on a mat and they give you these weights you put on, like gloves, and you’re jumping around and throwing punches. It’s super high cardio.”
Hudgens also mentions that it is easier to participate with friends, and says, “It gives you someone to look at and say you’re dying to. It’s fun!” She went to her first class with two other Disney celebs.
“Viveca’s fitness philosophy is one of total body health.”
Even though Bledel trains with Viveca personally and regularly, she stepped up her Piloxing routine to prepare for her role in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.” Viveca said, “We worked out more intensely with higher repetitions to increase the calorie burn. We focused on her favorite target areas of butt and thighs.” She also revealed that Alexis loves throwing punches at the bag during her Piloxing workout.
#6 Amanda Crew
“PILOXING has changed my life physically and mentally. My posture and flexibility have improved substantially, and for the first time in my life I have long lean muscle definition in all the right places. I’ve finally found a workout that I look forward to doing. It’s such an empowering thing to do for yourself.”
ET Canada interviewed Amanda Crew and she gave credit to Piloxing for her toned arms and back. She believes that Piloxing is a safe and fun environment because she gets to workout with other girls.
I’m ready to hop on board and give this workout a try! It looks like a fun workout that is similar to Zumba and kickboxing, both of which I love.
