Hottest New Workout, Use Your Fists And Box At Drenched
Free boxing classes for newbies on Fridays until the end of November 2018. Get those long, lean, toned muscles you’ve been dreaming of
Drenched is South Africa’s hottest new workout and you can try it out in Cape Town. It’s a heated boxing class that makes you work a little bit harder, sweat like never before and maximises the kilojoules you burn while having loads of fun. (Non-heated classes are also available.)
WHAT TO EXPECT AT DRENCHED
Each class lasts for 45 minutes. It’s important to arrive 15 minutes before the class starts so that you can get wrapped. Wrapping your wrists and hands is essential for providing stability to keep your hands safe inside your gloves. Staff members can help you or can do it yourself. You’ll start the class by warming up and activating your muscles through a combination of body weight exercises.
The highlight of the class is the main workout that consists of three ten-minute rounds. Each round has two parts: First, your instructor guides you through your two-minute aqua bag boxing round, teaching you various punches and techniques. You’ll spend the last minute of each round on the floor using steps and dumbells in a high-intensity interval training session.
Finally, you’ll focus on your core with a three-minute intense ab workout followed by a cool down where you stretch out your muscles. Make sure you drink water to stay hydrated.
THE TRAINERS AT DRENCHED
There are currently three trainers – Justin Radford, Dallas Kiximba, and Jenna Röll. When you sign up, it’s possible to contact the trainers personally and let them know about your specific situation. Jenna believes that you don’t need cheat meals if you train hard enough – you can eat whatever you want!
