Kickboxing combines elements of boxing, karate, and Muay Thai to create a high-intensity workout in a fun and energetic environment. Here are a few reasons why a kickboxing class in Mount Laurel at Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate might be the right choice for you:
Feel More Confident
Kickboxing gives you a sense of accomplishment as you challenge your body, learn new skills, and improve your performance. It also allows you to explore self-defense in an exciting and healthy way, which will help you feel more self-assured in dangerous situations.
Tone Your Whole Body
As you kick, punch, duck, side bend, and jab your way through a kickboxing class, your whole body is getting an incredible workout. This sport enhances your core muscles, which leads to better balance, flexibility, and agility, and it improves your posture.
Support Your Heart Health
Regular kickboxing is one of the best ways to maintain cardiovascular fitness. This fierce cardio workout keeps your heart pumping, which improves circulation and results in lower blood pressure and heart rate. Combine kickboxing with other aerobic exercises, such as running, swimming, and cycling to keep your heart healthy!
Many Americans are living a high-stress lifestyle, which can lead to insomnia, weight gain, high blood pressure, anxiety, and more. Kickboxing is a way to release endorphins, reduce anxiety, and let out your frustrations in a safe environment, which adds up to one powerful stress-reliever.
Lose a Few Extra Pounds
Because kickboxing has both aerobic and strength training components, it contributes to better weight loss in two ways. During the kickboxing session itself, most people will burn about 350 to 450 calories. Additionally, having more muscle tone may contribute to a higher metabolism in the long term.
Look Forward to Your Next Workout
Go to the gym, walk on the treadmill, go home: When that’s your fitness routine, it’s no wonder that you can barely muster the motivation to put on your workout clothes. Kickboxing, on the other hand, can be a lot of fun and a great way to make new friends.
