Now the athlete in your life can have a custom-designed fitness experience fit for a champ. Spa Bellagio’s new “B Box” class offers an energizing, cardiovascular workout sure to be a hit.
The 50-minute session combines traditional boxing equipment with the high-energy demands of a boot camp to burn calories, build stamina and develop muscles. The lesson begins with a five-minute warm-up, ranging from jumping rope to shadow boxing, to get the blood pumping. Next, five minutes of stretching prepares for the 35-minutes of non-stop, fancy footwork to come. That’s when boxing bags and focus mitts are used to achieve the ultimate adrenaline rush, an invigorating regime of one-two punches that build into a more intense series of three- and four-punch combos. A five-minute cool-down clinches this knockout bout held within Spa Bellagio’s 1,000-square-foot Bamboo Studio.
Trained boxing instructor Gary Biason created the circuit-based workout to offer a demanding, but attainable exercise challenge to guests of Spa Bellagio. Each course is customized to fit the fitness level of the participant. Biason graduated from California State University Northridge with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. He has more than nine years of fitness experience and is certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).
Rates are $45 for group sessions and $75 for one-on-one lessons. Group sizes are limited to a maximum of four participants. Those interested in “B Box” may call Spa Bellagio at (702) 693-7472. Reservations may be made up to three months in advance.
