New fitness craze reaches Bradley Stoke

BOKWA Fitness - come join the revolution.Following the success of ‘BOKWA’, a new fitness class launched by Active Centres at Thornbury Leisure Centre twelve weeks ago, an additional weekly session has been timetabled to respond to demand.

BOKWA classes take place at Thornbury Leisure Centre every Monday at 7:15pm and, starting this Wednesday (11th July), will run weekly at 6:15pm at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre.

BOKWA, a craze which originated in the US, is already very popular in London. The name is derived from a combination of two words ‘BO’ which represents light boxing and ‘KWA’ from the South African cultural and traditional dance Kwaito.

The cardiovascular class combines elements of dance and kickboxing in a fast-paced extreme movement, which provides a fun, challenging, and energizing total body workout.

Sam Holmes, Fitness Manager at Bradley Stoke and Thornbury Leisure Centres, said:

“BOKWA seems to be the new Zumba. We’ve seen the popularity grow amazingly over the last 12 weeks with up to 50 people in a class.”

“We expect the classes at Bradley Stoke to book up quickly and we may look to run more classes in the future in more of our leisure centres across South Gloucestershire.”
