While there are way more than 6 reasons to start training Kickboxing, we’ve summarized the most important reasons for people who have never put on a pair of boxing gloves. This is by no way and ends all list, as we feel we can go on for days talking about how addictive starting any martial art can be. Here are our 6 best reasons:
1)Fitness: Everyone wants to be in great shape and feel good! Whether it’s just to tone up or completely change your lifestyle, training kickboxing will help you get there. A cardio kickboxing class will keep you going when you feel like stopping and help you reach all of your health and fitness goals.
2)Self Defense: Training kickboxing will give you basic self-defense skills; you’ll have more confidence just carrying out daily activities. Not only will you have a higher level of cardiovascular fitness, but you will also be learning proper technique. Every movement is important, so learning good form is crucial to keeping yourself safe. Your instructors know this, and will assist you in learning these techniques.
3)Reduce Stress: Who doesn’t feel some relief when punching and kicking something? One of the main components of training kickboxing is hitting the bag in front of you! During this workout you’ll be releasing endorphins, hormones that have a feel-good effect lasting hours. This will not only lessen your feelings of pain, but it will also give you an incredible mood boost!
4)Enjoyable: Sure, spending all of this time working out doesn’t sound enticing, but once you try it you’ll be hooked! Between the positive atmosphere and all of the hardworking, friendly people around you, it’s hard to not be motivated. There is a ton of lively energy in all of our classes, especially after conquering a tough workout.
5)New/Adaptable: Doing the same workouts all of the time can make you feel stagnant. Switching up your routine and trying something new can help you feel great again! Following your instructors and doing new moves will keep you from getting bored or slacking. This high-energy workout will keep you going – especially when you feel like giving up.
6)Fit for Anyone: No, you don’t need a ton of experience to start training kickboxing. That’s exactly what your instructors are there for! These people have been training for quite some time, and are eager to get you to where you need to be. We always have new students starting their journeys, so there’s no need to feel embarrassed or nervous. Everyone starts somewhere and we know that, so why wouldn’t you give it a try?
