Enjoy The Health and Fitness Benefits of Kickboxing
The Competitive Edge Kickboxing Program is a combination of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics. Not only is it a safe workout, but there are also several health benefits you can gain from kickboxing.
On average, you can burn anywhere between 275–450 calories during a 30-minute kickboxing session and between 500–900 calories for an hour training session!
Kickboxing is a great cardio workout and sure to get your heart racing. Classes are designed to improve blood circulation, cardiovascular strength, and endurance one kick at a time. Holding proper form requires strict muscle activation, which tightens and tones your body; while the quick pace and fast movements keep your heart rate elevated from start to finish.
Total Body Workout
Your entire body is always engaged during kickboxing. Jabs, crosses, hooks, and uppercuts work your upper body, leaving your chest, arms, shoulders, and core feeling tight and tired in a matter of seconds. And let’s not forget the lower body. Round kicks, front kicks, and side kicks get your butt and thighs toned in no time.
Following a structured, step-by-step workout may seem daunting at first, but The CEK Kickboxing program will start you at the perfect pace, focusing on proper technique and basic movements. Each workout builds on the one before, and gradually gets into more intense, advanced combinations. These patterns will improve your coordination, flexibility, balance, and sharpen your reflexes.
Kickboxing is not only physical but mental, too. It relieves stress, builds confidence, and demands self-discipline. There are only a few things that relieve stress more than punching and kicking training bags.
In a class setting, you may need gloves, wrist wraps, and proper gear. So get ready to sweat and punch like a champ. Don’t forget your water bottle and a towel!
