By combining aspects of aerobics, boxing, and martial arts, kickboxing is an exhilarating, calorie-burning cardio workout that melts fat and increases muscle. Here are six of the many benefits of adding this invigorating activity to your exercise routine:
- Kickboxing Helps You Burn Calories Fast
If weight loss is your goal, kickboxing is the kind of workout you want. Data from the American Council on Education has shown that kickboxing burns up to 450 calories per hour.
- Kickboxing Builds Muscle
From core strength to arms to hamstrings, kickboxing is a full-body workout, so you’ll be losing fat and adding muscle simultaneously.
- Kickboxing Improves Cardio Health
Kickboxing really helps you work up a sweat because the body is in constant motion, leading to an increase in both heart rate and blood circulation.
- Kickboxing Increases Balance and Sharpens Reflexes
With all that kicking and punching, kickboxing improves coordination and flexibility. These are useful not only in other forms of exercise but also in everyday activities.
- In Addition to Exercise, Kickboxing Gives You a Means of Self-Defense
Being trained in kickboxing can help you protect yourself from a real-life assailant, and just might save your life someday.
- Kickboxing Saves Time
Kickboxing is one of the most efficient workouts because it combines many types of exercises into a single routine. This makes it a perfect workout routine for you if you want to get in shape but you just can’t seem to find the time.
