Interested in changing up your fitness routine? Whether you’re fitness savvy and looking for a way to switch up your fitness routine, or just entering the world of fitness and interested in a program that is fun in addition to a great workout, kickboxing may be the answer to your exercise needs!

Here are some of the benefits of Kickboxing:

Strength, Flexibility and Balance Benefits

By attending kickboxing classes on a regular basis, you’ll become stronger, better coordinated and more flexible. Throwing jabs, crosses, hooks and uppercuts works the biceps, triceps, deltoids and core; kicks work the glutes, hips and legs. When you practice kicks such as the roundhouse, you also work your balance skills. Kicking can also help to increase flexibility so you can kick even higher.

Classes at Evolve also include resistance training that include exercises such as squats, lunges, push-ups and sit-ups, because stronger muscles equate to stronger punches, kicks and elbows.

Improved Energy and Focus

As mentioned, cardiovascular exercise is a major component of every kickboxing routine, resulting in healthier heart and lungs. Did you know that kickboxing can also help you prevent diseases because it allows you to burn dangerous visceral fat for energy? Many of our members here at Evolve have also noted increased energy levels throughout the day and lower levels of stress.

Have you ever found yourself bored while running on a treadmill or peddling on a stationary bike with your mind wandering and your eyes on the clock? Participating in a kickboxing class requires your FULL attention – it’s a full body workout. Not only are you working out, but you’re picking up new technical skills. At Evolve, we also work in pairs, the better connection you have with your partner, the better the workout will be for the both of you.
