Title Boxing Club - First class after-thoughts

I survived my first boxing class (barely, lol)!

It was one of the hardest workouts I have ever done, and I've worked out a LOT! From the beginning it got my heart pumping and didn't stop until well after the class was over! It was a lot harder than I expected. As I mentioned in my previous post, my endurance really sucks, so I took a beating at this class! I had to stop several times and rest. Burned 598 calroies! WOOHOO and that was doing about 50% of the work as I just couldn't keep up. As my endurance builds, I know it will get better!

I took a video right after class to share my thoughts. You can see how red my face is and how out of breath I am in the video. It really did kick my butt!

BUT of course I plan on going back! It was so much FUN and I highly recommend it!

Today I start Boxing Classes

If you follow my facebook page, you know I train at the gym at least 4 times a week with weights. I LOVE weight training, I love lifting heavy, I love getting stronger, BUT what I hate is CARDIO! It's just so boring! So I usually end up doing cardio maybe once or twice a week, if that. The bad thing about this is I REALLY need cardio to drop the fat! My body responds well to it!

So I was really excited to see that a new Title Boxing Club was opening right up the street from me. I went there on their Grand Opening day and got the information, but didn't join! That was about a month ago. Not sure why I've held off joining because I really wanted to. Perhaps I was scared if I would be able to handle it?, I swear my endurance is horrible! Hand me heavy a$$ weight and I have no problem with it, but test my endurance and I SUCK!

BUT this weekend while shopping at a women's health expo, they had a booth there and I finally took the plunge and signed up! It helped that I got an awesome rate too :)

If you have never heard of Title Boxing Club, they offer boxing and kickboxing classes called the "Power Hour" as described on their website:

We’ve taken fitness to a whole new level with the POWER HOUR. These explosive total body fitness classes can help you lose weight and burn fat. Depending on your intensity, you can burn up to 1,000 calories in just one POWER HOUR. How hard you workout is completely up to you. All fitness levels are welcome, from beginners to pros, in three fun workout styles.

Today, I am taking my first Boxing Power Hour class:

Total body boxing workouts will have you boxing like a pro. Step into the boxing heavy bag station and begin with a stretch and warm up that will get your blood pumping and your body ready to fight for your fitness.

Once you’re warm, you’ll put on your boxing gloves and prepare to strike the heavy bag. Your professional trainer will teach you the proper boxing techniques including the jab, cross, and hook. You’ll follow your trainer through one to three minute fitness rounds designed to provide overall total body strength and endurance challenges that will take your body from flab to fab. After your boxing rounds, your last 15 minutes consists of abdominal, core and strength training using medicine balls and your own body weight for resistance. You choose how hard or light you hit this workout—either way you’re sure to burn calories and have fun.

WOW, sounds like I will be on my toes the entire time! Sounds FUN and something I am looking for in my cardio. BUT also sounds like a lot of hard work!!

Oh and did I mention, the boxing gloves come in PINK! YES I LOVE PINK! So of course I'm going to be sporting my PINK boxing gloves!

I'm off now to head to class, wish me luck! I'll write an updated post on my first class experience! :)

Product Review: Chipins ~ All natural popcorn chips

Hey all you popcorn lovers out there, if you haven't tried this product, I highly recommend it!

Chipins made by Popcorn Indiana
All natural popcorn chips!

It's a chip made out of popcorn. YES Popcorn chips! And let me tell you, they are super Yummy!
PLUS much healthier than regular potato chips!

Gluten-free, all-natural, and zero trans-fat!

Here's the nutritional information for the "Sea Salt" flavor:

They come in 4 different flavors:
Sea Salt
White Cheddar
Hot Buffalo Wing
Jalapeno Ranch

So far I have tried the Sea Salt and the White Cheddar and both are very good, taste like popcorn but with a chip texture. Really satisfies that need for something crunchy!

Product Description:We admit it, we’re obsessed. Obsessed with flavor, obsessed with crunch, obsessed with natural ingredients. We’re even obsessed with the word “obsessed.” So when we decided to make a chip, well, let’s just say we decided to really go for it. Behold the chip'ins, the first popcorn chip from your friends here at Popcorn, Indiana. These beauties are gluten-free, all-natural, zero trans-fat, and put in simplest terms, they’re the goods. We hope you love them as much as we do, and yeah, we hope you become a little obsessed, too. Munch Better™.

The ONLY BAD thing about this products is, it's really hard not to eat the whole bag, they are THAT good!

Check out their website: Popcorn Indiana

They can be purchased at Walmart, Wholefoods, Costco and several other places, as well as online.
