8 Amazing Reasons Why Women Love Kickboxing
Here are 8 reasons why women love kickboxing:
Kickboxing Combines An Aerobic Workout With Resistance Training
According to American Fitness Professional and Associates (AFPA), women like kickboxing because it allows them to receive a cardio and resistance workout at the same time. Kickboxing’s dual-benefit also alleviates the boredom that can come from one-dimensional workouts.
Total Body Training
Working out only your abs is not going to give you great abs. The key to an amazing physique is total body training. Kickboxing is total body training that works out your whole body and not just target areas resulting in multiple benefits such as increased flexibility, improved coordination and increased cardiovascular fitness.
Burn Baby, Burn!
Kickboxing participants can burn up to 800 calories during a class. Because of this high-caloric burn rate, kickboxing is a phenomenal workout for anyone wanting to lose weight and shed excess pounds.
Kickboxing is much more than just a way to get in shape. It also builds valuable self-defence skills. Kickboxing teaches the fundamental skills of how to stand, move and fight – all key elements of self-defence.
All Natural Stress Relief
Participating in a kickboxing class will cause your body to release a type of hormone know as endorphins. These ‘feel good’ hormones improve mood, providing a sense of achievement and overall euphoria. Stress blocks out the production of endorphins, kickboxing classes replenish these ‘feel good’ hormones.
Boosts Confidence & Self-Esteem
Exercise in general makes people feel better physically. Kickboxing participants, however, often start to see the mental and physical affects immediately and as a result feel profound increases in confidence. This sense of strength can have profound effects both professionally and socially.
Increased Energy Levels
The training format of kickboxing is designed to allow participants to develop at their own pace and skill level. Participants work to their maximum without over-working and burning out. This balanced approach rewards participants with increased and sustained energy levels.
Sure kickboxing is a total body-training workout that burns calories, reduces stress, boosts self-confidence and increases energy but it’s also a lot of fun! With kickboxing, participants are able to step outside of their habitual comfort zones and connect with new or hidden aspects of themselves. The journey is amazing and they like what they see!
