Cardio Kickboxing provides a fun and innovative way to accomplish your fitness goals while enjoying yourself at the same time. Cardio Kickboxing takes kicking and punching drills and incorporates music to create a fast paced, high intensity class that targets calorie burning as well as cardiovascular fitness. It allows women to strengthen, tone and reduce fat at the same time. Aside from physical results, students improve heart function, core stabilization, improve coordination and increase stamina. Our skilled instructors include a variety of equipment such as jump ropes, dumbbells, cones and stabilization balls to keep you engaged and challenged. Cardio Kickboxing also incorporates a variety of athletic drills such as jumping jacks, squats, crunches, push-ups and much more in intervals or in between rounds. This creates a dynamic and well-rounded exercise routine which will serve as a total upper and lower body workout.
Aids Weight Loss
The intense physical activity involved in this high-energy workout definitely leads to weight loss. According to a study done by the American Council of Exercise, a 175-pound individual could burn approximately 400 calories in just thirty minutes of cardio kickboxing. Burning calories can help you manage your weight or help you lose weight if you combine your efforts with a healthy, balanced diet.
Strength and Core
Punching and kicking builds coordination and strength in the muscles of the arms and legs. Most movements in Cardio Kickboxing involve the activation of the core, which includes the muscles of the abdomen, back and hips. If you work your core and follow a healthy, calorie controlled diet you will begin to see results immediately and can eventually create a flat and defined abdomen.
Stress produces enzymes that lower the amount of endorphins. During Cardio Kickboxing exercises, endorphins are released in the body that relieve pain and aid in decreasing depression. The workout also allows tension to leave the body and teaches participants to breathe properly. The act of punching can also be helpful in relieving stress and frustration.
Learning this form of kickboxing allows you to protect yourself from unwanted confrontation. The cardio kickboxing class uses Muay Thai bags and focus mitts so students can effectively gauge distance or learn how to properly through a kick and a punch.
