Blasts Fat, Fast
“It’s an incredibly efficient workout. Kickboxing alone burns about 750 calories in an hour, said Muscle and fitness magazine. We have had people drop up to 17 pounds in 3 weeks on a fitness kickboxing training program. Add in jump rope and conditioning drills, and you could burn anywhere from 750 to 900 calories in an class! While you burn calories, you’ll also be speeding up your metabolism and toning your entire body. The benefit of kickboxing is that it is a high-intensity, full-body cardio workout, which is perfect if your aim is to lose weight and get fit.
Unlike locomotory cardio (running, rowing, swimming, elliptical machine etc) Kickboxing utilizes different movements that save the repetitive stress on the joints. Kickboxing not only burns WAY more calories that traditional cardio, but it is more fun and safer.
All those muscles from your back around to your stomach are being used when you punch, kick, bob, weave, and slip.It builds core muscle strength. Rotational movements, core training and kickboxing can improve your musculature head to toe, and the way you move and stand is yet another benefit.
Fitness kickboxing is repeated bursts of explosive movements. When you jab, cross, hook and kick in combinations, these short bursts are proven to shred more calories and help you burn fat, but in the process you are also building some awesome heart strength. You’re training your heart to repeatedly handle short stressful situations.
Kickboxing has similar resistance training benefits to weight lifting. Resistance training increases bone density. More bone density means stronger bones which reduces the risk of broken bones. At Fitness One, we also include a weekly science based strength workout to help you build lean muscle mass and build an awesome metabolism.
