We at Athlas Training Team Fort Lauderdale often get asked, “I’m interested in learning martial arts, but I’m not interested in sparring or competing. Do you offer any classes for someone like me?”. The answer is yes, our cardio kickboxing classes are a great option for people who are mainly interested in a fun, cardio-intensive workout while learning a new skill.
What is Cardio Kickboxing?
Cardio kickboxing, often referred to as CKO (Cardio Kickboxing) or aerobic kickboxing, is a dynamic and fast-paced fitness regimen that combines various martial arts techniques with cardiovascular exercises. Participants perform a series of punches, kicks, knee strikes, and even elbow strikes in choreographed routines. These movements are set to upbeat music, making it a fun and engaging workout.
We all know physical exercise and cardio-based workouts are extremely beneficial for your physical health and well-being, but many people find activities like running on a treadmill or exercising on an elliptical machine to be boring and monotonous. Cardio kickboxing is a great alternative to many other cardio-based workouts because it also includes the excitement of learning a new skill.
Our cardio kickboxing classes are run by our highly skilled and experienced instructors who can help give you the guidance and motivation you need to perform your best. They also incorporate a warm-up and cool-down period and both dynamic and static stretching. Often, there is a segment specifically for core exercises like crunches and planking.
Some of the benefits of cardio kickboxing:
Improved health and sleep:
Some of the benefits of cardio kickboxing classes include increased endurance, flexibility, balance, and coordination. You can expect a full body workout, utilizing all your major muscle groups, with a strong emphasis on the core. This helps improve your general health and well-being as well as improve sleep at night.
Elevating your heart rate with high-intensity exercises is a great way to improve your cardiovascular endurance and burn fat throughout the day by raising your metabolism. All the exercises in our cardio kickboxing classes are performed on bags or pads, so they’re a great way to accomplish this feat without putting the wear and tear on your body that live sparring might.
Both the physical exertion of cardio kickboxing and the act of taking your frustrations out on a bag are great forms of stress relief. This could be at the end of a stressful day at work/school so you’re able to sleep better at night, or before you start your work day so you perform better at your job.
