10 Reasons Why Men & Women Should Kickbox For Fitness

Kickboxing has become a very popular sport for many, and not surprisingly, because it provides the best workout, and challenges to many of our senses and capacities.

Kickboxing not only helps to build and tone your muscular stature, but also helps you gain mental strength.

Kickboxing is a great workout that really stimulates your mind, body and soul. Not to mention, it burn tons of calories and I mean tons.

Here are the top 10 reasons why all women should try boxing for fitness:

1. Develop self-defense skills

Kickboxing can teach you countless combinations of kicks and punches. This can be used as self-defense if you ever end up in a dangerous situation.

2. Help with weight loss

Kickboxing can burn as high as 500-1000 calories in a single hour work out depending on the intensity. Hence, boxing can greatly assist with your weight loss efforts.

3. Build a stronger heart

Regular Kickboxing sessions help to maintain a balanced heart rate. It also helps to improve the strength of heart muscles, building a stronger heart.

4. Build strong bones and muscles

Kickboxing improves the strength and flexibility of all muscle groups in the body. It also helps to develop joints and overall skeletal system.

5. Strengthen the entire body

Because Kickboxing involves sparring, bouncing, ducking, pivoting, punching (and even kicking), it requires repetitive motions of your entire body. These repeated movements provide strength and power especially to your arms, legs and core area.

6. Improve core stability

Anything that causes your body to become unstable requires your core muscles to work harder to keep you balanced. Kickboxing requires lots of fast rotational movements and these core muscles will develop to allow you to punch hard without losing your balance.

7. Improve co-ordination and body awareness

Moving lots of parts at the same time requires a good connection between your brain and your body. With patience and practice, focus and discipline can transfer over to other sports and activities.

8. Help to relieve stress

Kickboxing helps to relieve physical and mental stress. Research shows that people who kickbox regularly are more cheerful, getting rid of stress and tension with every punch!

9. Act as an outlet for anger

Kickboxing provides a good opportunity to release pent up anger. When you kick and punch during kickboxing, you can let go of anger without blowing up at someone. This can help you relax.

10. Improve confidence and self-esteem

Mastering the techniques involved in kickboxing often make people feel pretty good! The better your technique, the more force you can put into your punch. The noise you hear when you land a strong, accurate punch right on the sweet spot of the focus pad is so satisfying!
