Whether you’re looking to increase strength, build your confidence, up your coordination, or you’re just after a kick-butt cardio workout, KICK FIT will keep you coming back for more! You’ll find our KICK FIT classes focusing on everything from cardio conditioning, martial arts, and one-on-one competition between you and the bag.

TOP 5 REASONS TO MAKE KICKBOXING PART OF YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE:

1. MELT FAT, FAST

Combining martial arts techniques and heart-pumping cardio, kickboxing is a high-energy workout that is guaranteed to burn calories and fat. Add in jump rope and conditioning drills, and you could burn anywhere from 750 to 900 calories in an hour!

The cardio-conditioning element of kickboxing is one of the most effective ways to burn fat-especially that stubborn belly fat that’s associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and some types of cancer. A study published in the American Journal of Physiology found aerobic exercise to be better at reducing belly fat than resistance training, by burning an average of 67 percent more calories.

2. TONE YOUR ENTIRE BODY

A typical KICK FIT class combines kickboxing and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) cardio with jump rope, and core strengthening exercises.

“There’s a large toning component to kickboxing because it forces you to engage all the muscle groups in your body,” says Coach Omar. By using kickboxing bags, as opposed to simply air boxing, you’ll burn even more calories. “You’ll also work your back and trim your waist because each move requires a lot of core power behind it,” he says.

Engaging your core will also ultimately improve coordination, while the constant movement in kickboxing improves flexibility and reflexes.

3. LEARN VALUABLE SELF-DEFENSE MOVES

While the majority of women are turning to kickboxing for the physical workout, the self-defense aspect is a perk for many people, says Omar. “It’s important for people to know why they’re doing certain moves and engaging certain parts of their body,” she says.

Having the ability to protect yourself is a valuable asset and it’s empowering to know that if you were in a dangerous situation, you have the knowledge to help get yourself out of it safely.

4. TAKE OUT STRESS AND AGGRESSION

Sometimes the best way to release stress after a hard day at work is not a cold beer, but some intense physical activity. Kickboxing offers a healthy way to get out some of the day’s frustrations out of your system, which will also help you get a better night’s sleep and improve mental clarity.

5. FEEL SEXY AND CONFIDENT

There’s nothing sexier than being able to kick some butt, and look great doing it. The intensity of kickboxing means you’ll see improvements and results quickly. KICK FIT sessions run Monday-Saturday at 9:30am! “When you’re putting yourself through a program that does really challenge you and you finish it-that alone boosts confidence dramatically because you’ve accomplished something and that’s something to be proud of,” says Omar.
