When you are serious about losing weight and getting in shape fast, fitness kickboxing will do it for you. This sport is sure to burn off more calories in one hour than almost anything else you can do. You will also gain strength, flexibility, endurance, and a lot more.

Burn the Calories

If you need to lose weight, then kickboxing is the ideal sport. In a single class, it is possible for you to burn as much as 1,000 calories, and possibly even more, leading to a weight loss of up to two pounds per week. Not only will this take off the pounds fast – it will also keep them off.

Lots of Movement

Classes involve a lot of movement, helping you get in shape in a short period of time. Exercises include several forms to ensure that you develop and use all your muscles. You can expect cardiovascular exercises, plyometric exercises, resistance training, and possibly some yoga.

In addition to these exercises, you will also get some time with the bag. This involves practicing punches and kicks, knee strikes, as well as combinations of hits and moves.

Noncontact Sport

Even though kickboxing is technically a martial art, the fitness classes do not involve direct contact with anyone. All kicks and punches are directed toward a bag or at a hand held pad. For those wanting to get into competition, other classes are available for that purpose.

Work at Your Own Speed

Classes are taught in a way that enables you to work at your own speed. If you feel you need to take a rest, you can. If you feel that a particular exercise or movement is too difficult, you are free to work on something else.

What You Will Gain

Besides getting in great shape, there are also a number of other great benefits in taking a fitness kickboxing class. You will gain strength and stamina, better balance, coordination, and focus. It will also help you to develop better reflexes, enabling you to move faster as you practice. You will also find that you have increased energy levels and will probably sleep better, too.


Because the sport is also a martial art, you will also learn various ways to defend yourself. This will give you greater self-confidence and less fear. You will learn the moves you need to defend yourself, if there is ever a need for it.

Who Can Join

It is not necessary to be in top shape before joining a kickboxing class. However, if you are accustomed to sitting around a lot, you may want to lose some weight first and get some body tone before joining a class. The exercises and classes are high intensity and non-stop.
