Zumba Fitness by Veronica and SoFit are teaming up together to bring you "Cardio Kickboxing" on Thursdays! Cardio kickboxing combines aerobics, martial arts and boxing and relies heavily on moves like jabs, front kicks and side kicks. In a basic cardio kickboxing class for weight loss, you might learn full-body moves such as a boxer shuffle and a bob and weave. Upper-body exercises might include a front jab and cross jab, hook and elbow dig, and you might work your lower body with knee crunches, squats front kicks, roundhouse kicks or side kicks.
According to the American Council on Exercise, kickboxing is a full-body workout that challenges all major muscle groups while improving aerobic capacity, decreasing stress, improving focus and boosting endurance. Because it requires a higher level of intensity than many other aerobic exercises, kickboxing may also promote greater gains in balance, stability and strength.
Talk with your physician or a qualified fitness professional to find out whether cardio kickboxing is an appropriate activity for you. You should already be exercising aerobically at least three times each week for 20 to 30 minutes and maintaining your target heart rate.
Come on out and join us for this fun and exhilarating class that is guaranteed to get your heart pumping and burn calories, tone muscles, increase agility, relieve stress and leave you feeling better about you.
Bring a towel and water bottle to each class and a mat for abs at the end.
