Why Kickboxing Fitness?

Kickboxing Fitness continues to be one of the hottest fitness trends today. But now people want to learn proper form and technique, not the choreographed arm punches and fake kicks that so many programs teach. With Mixed Martial Arts growing in popularity, people want to learn to use proper kickboxing technique - but without having to fight.


Kickboxing Fitness focuses on fitness first and boxing second. It uses sound kickboxing techniques (not the kind of "fake" martial arts that you see on some video programs) that get people in the best physical and mental shape of their lives.

A typical Kickboxing Fitness workout meets all of the criteria of an ideal fitness program:

::
 Outstanding cross-training for any sport that relies on "core   strength" (e.g. golf, tennis, baseball, football, basketball,   martial arts, and more).

::  Both an aerobic and anaerobic conditioning component.

:: Strength training.

:: Variety and fun.

:: Easy to learn.

:: Low risk of injury (because the focus is on kickboxing   technique, not actual fighting).

:: Helps burn calories and take off fat.

:: Addresses the biggest problem areas most people have   (abdominals, butt, hips, and thighs - the "core")

:: Gets proven results, and increases self-esteem and confidence.
Participants rave about Kickboxing Fitness, because workouts are always different, always fun, and get results. Plus, people learn to "fight without the fight."

Kickboxing Fitness is all about moving from the beginning of a round to the end of the round. In kickboxing, you move from the starting bell until the ending bell. There are no time outs during a round. There is constant movement. That's one of the great things about the Kickboxing Fitness workout.

Most Kickboxing Fitness rounds are two minutes, with a 45 second rest. More advanced participants can work up to 3 minute rounds with a 45-60 second rest. In between rounds, you focus on breathing while the heart rate decreases.

A Kickboxing Fitness workout typically has these four phases:

Warm-up. Typically the workout begins with a couple of rounds of jumping rope, followed by kinetic stretching building up to some basic kicks and punches.

Technique. For 2 to 3 rounds, you work to improve stance, kicks, punches, footwork, and combinations.

Kicking and Punch Drills. For most people, the most enjoyable part of Kickboxing Fitness is working on kicking, punching, and combinations. During this part of the workout, you work through a series of offensive and defensive routines. During this time, you continue to work in 2-minute rounds, with a 45 second rest in between. There are a wide variety of kicking and punching drills that anyone can do in front of a mirror, on a bag, or with a partner.

Each round, you add one or two new things to the routine. For instance, you might start with front kicks the first round. Then you introduce the a punch with a kick the second round, and mix up some combinations. The third round you might add some defensive moves. And so on.

There is no limit to the variety you can introduce during Drill training.

Wrap up. The final 10 or 15 minutes of a workout can be the most challenging. You have a number of options, depending on your goals: stretching, abdominal/core work, arm strengthening, sprints, endurance training, and/or lunges.
