If you are looking for a total body workout that totally kicks butt, than you can’t do better than taking a Kickboxing class at Eastpointe Health & Fitness. Kickboxing is an excellent way to increase your stamina, flexibility, and strength . . .and it’s a lot of fun!
Combining elements of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics, Kickboxing gives you overall physical conditioning and toning. This rigorous cardiovascular workout utilizes controlled jabs, hooks, uppercuts and kicks designed to get you on your way to a leaner body. Practicing Kickboxing moves can also help to improve your balance, flexibility, coordination, and endurance.
“Kickboxing is a great exercise for all fitness levels,” said EPH&F Kickboxing Instructor Julia Marone. “No matter where you are in your fitness journey, modifications can be made to all of the Kickboxing movements to allow for lower or higher impact on your body. It can also be a great interval workout by allowing combinations of martial arts style movements and plyometrics.”
EPH&F also offers Turbo Kick which is a variation of Kickboxing. “Turbo Kick is a little different from Kickboxing.” said EPH&F Turbo Kick Instructor, Krista Corr. “It’s a combination of Kickboxing moves along with dance moves choreographed to motivating music. Turbo Kick is high energy fun with a hip hop flare.” Krista is so passionate about doing Kickboxing that that is why she became an instructor. “I was taking the class for a year at Eastpointe and the instructor got hurt,” she said. “There weren’t any Kickboxing subs at the time and I couldn’t live without it because Kickboxing had become a part of my daily routine. So I decided to get certified in Turbo Kick myself and now I’m an instructor!”
Kickboxing is also a great stress reliever. If you’ve had a bad day, you can Kickbox away your frustrations. Fans of Kickboxing also say that the practice helps them to feel more empowered and confident achieving a healthier state of mind. “Exercising is always more enjoyable with a group and when you’re doing freestyle Kickboxing or Turbo Kick time just seems to fly by,” added Julia. “Everyone is always sweating after class and smiling I love to see new faces and members getting into the combinations. So if you’ve had a bad day or good day come down and kick it! I guarantee a good time and a better mood.”
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and jab, punch, and kick your way to fitness.
