From fitness to self-defense, actress Jay Anstey has a new hobby in the form of boxercise!

It's been a month since actress Jay Anstey underwent quite a traumatic experience after she was held hostage at her home in Johannesburg.

Although unscathed, YOU caught up with the former Isidingo actress and found that she recently has taken up a new hobby, Boxercise. Understandably, especially after the incident, one would assume that Jay's new activity has to do with self defense. She agrees but says that she joined the classes for fitness purposes as well.

"I find gym monotonous and boring so I need something that stimulates me. Boxersize seemed like the perfect fit! It combines cardio, circuit, boxing and partner work.," she says.

"It's part fitness, part self defence. I believe every woman should know how to defend herself. And it's also fun punching a bag."

Jay was seen quiet seriously working up a sweat at the Randburg Boxing Club during her first class, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

However, this is not the first hobby of it's kind for the now blonde beauty who has done some amateur boxing before as well as Krav Maga, a form of self-defence developed in Israel.

Jay adds that, despite what she and her family has recently experienced, she is happy that they all are fine and moving on with life.

"Myself and my family are doing ok. We are moving forward and feeling stronger. We're just happy to have each other."
