Currently 1st kyu in karate, boxed when younger, on/off teacher by profession (but never PE), always training to keep on top of my game - been asked to run a boxfit class at a studio near me.

Daytime class, aimed at women mostly, but maybe older kids in tow (summer holidays). Am aiming them a bit higher than average boxfit class, that is, correct form and conditioning, not just lots of cardio and flailing at pads.

Thing is, I'm looking for calithenic exercises which are engaging and varied.
I plan on form/punching/movement sections interspersed with bodyweight exercises or medicine ball/light handweight exercises which are not just your usual sit up/press ups/burpees. Also ones which can be tweaked for those with greater and lesser strength and ability.

Just wondering if anyone has any which are going to mix it up and make it less likely to get stale.

Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine tried running a boxfit class at our local YMCA. I gave it a shot, but due to my schedule, my participation was quite limited. There's some definite potential there, however!

As a fitness regime it's hard to beat. Throw in some actual technique and its like boxing 'cept without the yikes, what happened to you.

Sounds like a good opportunity! Maybe throw in some partner pad work if you have them or some basic partner drills?

Loads of videos on Youtube you can look at. Try searching for the Les Mills stuff or Beach Body / Insanity with Shaun T
