Are you looking to BURN up to 900 Calories an hour?
Would you like to increase your lean muscle mass and improve your flexibility?
1144 Athletics' fitness kickboxing class gives you a full-body workout that incorporates the sport of kickboxing and moves from extreme fitness. All instructors have competitive kickboxing experience and are world-class personal trainers.
During class you will work through a series of punch & kicks combinations along with abdominal and plyometric exercises using the best method to kick your body into gear, "high intensity interval training". Studies show that interval training helps you lose weight faster by completing 10-to-30 minute interval workouts 3-to-5 times a week when compared to regular 30-to-60 minute cardio workouts. Throughout class you will workout with a group and one-on-one with an instructor. If your new to fitness kickboxing or a seasoned pro our classes are designed to handle each person as an individual.
As you continue your training you will learn how to throw punches with precision and power, you'll strengthen your upper body and eventually see more muscle definition. The kicks will strengthen your legs, especially the hamstrings (the muscles that run down the backs of your thighs). And the kneeing move (a strike in which you thrust your bent knee upward) will firm your abdominal muscles; in fact, all of the moves, when done correctly, will make your torso into a solid base that lets you do everyday tasks more easily.
Your cardiovascular system will benefit, too, throughout the workout you will be bobbing, weaving, and jumping amidst the punches and kicks, so that your heart rate stays elevated for most of the session, a good class will leave you drenched in sweat and energized.
