Kickboxing is a great workout that has both physical and mental benefits. Here are just a few of the reasons why fitness kickboxing is just the workout you’ve been looking for:
1. Get Really Fit
Fitness kickboxing is a full-body workout. You’ll tone your upper and lower body, as well as strengthen and tone your core. Most kickboxing instructors structure their classes into rounds. You’ll work at a high intensity for a short interval and then get a break before starting a new round. This pattern is essentially high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which is known to be an effective way to burn calories and build your fitness.
2. Increase Flexibility
Fitness kickboxing will not only get you into great shape, but it will also improve your flexibility. If you have limited range of motion in your joints, particularly your hips, you’ll begin to notice a difference with a regular kickboxing training routine.
3. Improve Coordination
Rather than following familiar movement patterns like running or walking, kickboxing challenges and improves your coordination. In class, you must coordinate left and right side movements of your arms and your legs. In addition to improving your coordination, kickboxing also improves your balance and address imbalances that exist between your left and right side.
4. Relieve Stress
Using physical activity as stress relief has many benefits. Kickboxing provides a safe and fun outlet for life’s daily stressors. Plus, if you get in a quality, high-intensity workout, like fitness kickboxing, you’re likely to sleep better at night. Getting regular exercise and a good night’s sleep helps your body manage stress.
