There are many reasons why cardio kickboxing is a better option than traditional cardio methods. For starters, it is waaayyyyyy more entertaining than running on a treadmill. That is because it is a fun class filled with people trying to achieve similar goals and is led by a lively personal trainer.
Secondly, it combines cardio with kickboxing movements. Punch and kick away all of your stress! The best part is that the heavy bag won’t hit back. 😉 If you want to look at this from a self-defense point-of-view, these are movements (punches, kicks, knees, elbows) you could use if a self defense situation should ever arise.
But the main highlight of cardio kickboxing has to be the fact that it burns so many calories. The amount of calories burned varies from person to person. A variety of factors influence calorie burn, such as height, weight, and gender. But generally, an average person can burn about 400-700 calories in an hour long cardio kickboxing session.
To put that into perspective, one pound of fat contains 3500 calories. Just one cardio kickboxing class is capable of shedding off about 1/7th of a pound of fat! This is due to two things-
- The cardio kickboxing class constantly keeps your body moving and your heart rate elevated.
- Your classmates and personal trainer will be there to motivate you if you are starting to slow down.
These two things complement each other and are the perfect recipe for burning calories.
Now, let’s say that you take 5 classes per week. That equals about 2500 calories burned. Combine that with a healthy diet and all of that unwanted fat will practically be melting off of your body!
