10 Reasons why Fitness Kickboxing Benefits you – By Sensei Lorenzo Sandoval (Master Instructor)
Sometimes exercising can be a chore and be completely difficult especially if you have that crazy trainer who doesn’t think your good enough. Here are the 10 reasons why fitness kickboxing benefits your life as an adult.
- MARTIAL ARTS MAKES YOU MOVE EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY
We all realize that there are more parts to our bodies and there are muscles in almost every part of our body. In fitness kickboxing we are punching and kicking and moving areas of our body that we normally don’t use. This develops range of motions and strengthens certain neurological pathways that our muscles retain. This helps training our muscles to react and move the way they want. By increasing the pathway and constantly forcing your body to move, your constantly telling your brain that this area of your body needs to improve.

The whole idea is to create a better range of motions so as your body develops, you can do exercises that are a lot more challenging.

2. CARDIO MAKES YOU STRONGER
We all have heard this before, doing cardio makes the heart beat stronger. It increases blood for to all areas of the body. It increases circulation and helps muscles function better. By increasing circulation it helps the body function better, this also help increase work load in the muscles so they can last longer and preform better and burn more fat.
3. Working out as a Team
Its hard to workout alone. Sometimes when your in a kickboxing class its just a lot more fun to workout together. Having people around you can motivate you to do things that you couldnt do alone. Being part of a group with all your friends can be fun and exciting. You can compete against each other and more importantly push each other to do more challenging exercises that you normally wouldn’t do alone.
4. SELF DEFENSE
Impact training is a huge part of learning how to throw a strike. Learning basic punching and strikes can lead into techniques that might help you in simple altercation. A Remember your training your body almost to fight. By hitting something constantly your automatically training your body how to deal with the stress of hitting something. Though its not ideally the best situation, and its not recommended to use for fighting you never know by throwing a punch in a bad situation might help you get out of it.
