BBX: Boogie Box and BBX Hardcore – Are You Down?
So I posted a comment on Facebook a couple months ago about my workout.
Unfortunately, I had no clue what she was talking about.
Immediately, I was on a search to educate myself.
I love fitness that doesn’t involve weights.
Not that I don’t like working out with weights, please don’t get it twisted.
The comment that started this journey was about me lifting for curves.
I have been into fitness for as long as I can remember.
During the high school years, I worked out with the football team lifting weights for P.E.
Then after school it was dance club.
After dance club, it was practice and back to working out again.
I’ve always been a pretty healthy eater too.
I liked sweets as much as really good steamed veggies and weighted squats then, and I have done a pretty good job of carrying my love for fitness and healthy eating into my adult life.
Now as I said, one of my BF’s saw a Facebook status I made about working out and suggested I come take a class with her.
Having done everything from Tae Bo to P90X, Brazilian Butt Lift, Zumba, Insanity and more, I thought this was just another workout program.
Oh how wrong I was!
I was so happily disappointed as I was left panting, dripping in sweat, and my butt and legs were on FIRE all the way home!
This is THE workout program!
Dede Barbanti has created a workout for women like me, who like to be challenged physically.
Women like me who like to feel the burn, and not just see the results.
A single mother of three, a sports nutritionist and fitness coach, Dede was looking for a way to get rid of that ‘baby fat’ once and for all.
What she created has blended a workout of, “sports endurance drills, martial arts, Latin and Hip Hop dance, plyometrics and resistance training all into one ultra-effective hour!”
Oh what a heck of an hour it is!
From the time you begin warming up, your body is in for an amazing workout.
You are constantly in motion using your entire body with the Boogie Box workout.
“By using new ground breaking methods of applied muscle resistance (AMR) and RSL (Rotational, Swivel, Lateral) patterns, you are able to use muscle confusion to continually push your body further, avoid those dreaded plateaus, burn more calories and sculpt lean muscle without the use of equipment,” states the BBX website.
During the intense, high-energy workout, Dede calls out moves for you to do.
With combinations like the 1,2,3, Matrix, Sumo, and add some traveling, you are guaranteed to be dripping in sweat as the workout has been scientifically tested and proven to burn up to 1100 calories in that hour.
I can honestly say this is the first time in for-never that a workout literally had me dripping in sweat to where there was someone coming to dry the floor for us so we didn’t slip.
Now that wasn’t even the BBX Hardcore class, so imagine what you are in for with that program… oh hellz yeah!
