5 Benefits of Kickboxing Fitness
Kickboxing fitness is fun, and one of the best cardio/interval workouts you can do. In Kickboxing, you burn a ton of calories and you get a great workout, but there are lots of other benefits to taking a kickboxing fitness class that you may or may not think of.
Resistance to Multiple Muscle Groups
Of course you’re getting your heart rate up during a kickboxing class. The reason is you’re using multiple muscle groups during the workout. So instead of doing a cyclic type of cardio like running in place or doing an exercise machine, you’re using your entire body through all different types of ranges and motions, elevating up and down throughout the entire workout. Also, every time you make contact with a bag, you are getting some resistance through the muscle, which helps with elevating the heart rate and improving a little bit of bone strength.
Improving Your Balance
Another benefit of kickboxing fitness is that you work on your balance. When beginners start hitting a bag, sometimes they’ll feel themselves sort of leaning off balance or they’ll throw a punch and not feel really secure in their footwork. But kickboxing training helps to improve that balance, your ability to move yourself, and your ability to control yourself.
One of the biggest injuries that they see in the ER are falls for people over 65 years old. The stronger you are in your balance, the less chance that you’re going to fall, regardless of your age.
Kickboxing fitness is also a great stress reliever. Nothing is better when you’re stressed out or have had a stressful day than coming in, working a series of combinations on a bag or some pads, and getting your mind off of what’s been going on throughout the day.
Kickboxing Seriously Burns Calories
On top of all of this, kickboxing has been rated at burning up to 800 calories a workout. So if that is your goal in a workout, to burn a ton of calories, kickboxing is probably one of the best choices of a workout that you can make.
Safer Than Other Forms of Cardio
Kickboxing is safer than some other forms of cardio because other forms of cardio tend to be cyclic. That means you’re doing the same motions over and over and over, which is repetitive stress. In a kickboxing workout there are many different types of punches, kicks, and movements that you will do throughout a workout to keep things fresh, fun, and less repetitive than other exercise forms.
To summarize, kickboxing fitness has great benefits. It adds resistance through various muscles, trains your balance, and provides stress relief. It also burns a ton of calories and is safer than other, more static forms of cardio. And, of course, it’s one of the most fun workouts you can do.
