Improve Balance & Gain Confidence with Kickboxing Classes

You have probably heard about kickboxing. Odds are, however, you may not know much about it.

For the uninitiated, the concept may bring up an image of a muscle-toned fighter kicking and yelling intensely (not entirely wrong). Or, you might think: Chuck Norris – though you'd be slightly mistaken. 

If you're interested in finding out more about the sport, ClubFitness offers great kickboxing classes in Greensboro, NC for beginners and experienced martial artists alike. 

What is Kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a type of martial arts that combines elements of Karate and boxing. There are many regional variations of kickboxing. But, at its core, the term can be used to describe any sport that combines kicking and punching. 

Why all the hoopla about kickboxing? 

The sport has steadily risen in popularity because it's a great total body workout. A kickboxing class can help with strength training, flexibility, balance and endurance, as well as focus and concentration. Because kickboxing requires the use of all of your body, it also makes for a terrific cross training workout. 

While kickboxing is a form of martial arts, it is also an excellent form of exercise. 

What to Expect from a Kickboxing Class at ClubFitness

Kickboxing classes at ClubFitness last one hour and include a 5-minute warm-up period at the start of class, as well as a cool-down period of the same duration at the conclusion.

Instructors monitor participants for proper technique and may offer corrective suggestions as necessary. Let your instructor know prior to the start of class of any limitations, injuries or other physical hindrances.

Be sure to bring a refillable water bottle and wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes and closed-toe, athletic shoes.

Benefits of Kickboxing Classes

There are a number of great benefits that come with participation in a cardio kickboxing class at ClubFitness. These include: 

Burning Calories

Kickboxing is a high energy sport. Fitness experts report that a one-hour cardio kickboxing class can burn up as much as 800 calories. 

Improving Coordination

It takes more than just a little concentration to correctly learn all the punches and kicks. The training helps to strengthen your core and improve your reflexes, resulting in greater ability to coordinate your movements. 

Reducing Stress

Is it strange that a combat sport can make you feel more relaxed? Regardless, there's absolutely something cathartic about punching and kicking your way through a kickboxing workout. At the end of class, you should definitely be closer to zen.  

Better Posture

If you're stuck in a chair, behind a computer screen all day, your posture is sure to suffer. Kickboxing engages your core and other muscle groups that may not get used as often, leading to a better, more balanced body disposition.  

Learning Self-defense

As a martial art discipline, kickboxing teaches you important elements of self-defense. Once you get the basic movements down, you'll be better equipped to protect yourself should you encounter a physically threatening situation. 

Boosting Confidence 

Intensive exercise releases endorphins, which has a positive effect on your mood and can help you feel more confident. There's also something to be said about feeling empowered by your improved physical abilities.
