Kickboxing is usually seen as a sport that is for macho men that want to prove to each other that they can beat someone up (or even for self defense). What most don’t realize is that it s actually a great way for men and women to get their bodies into shape.

It is a form of aerobics that boosts up your adrenaline, gives you a great cardiovascular work-out, and strengthens and tones those muscles you never knew you had. There are many different forms of kickboxing to choose from – one of the most common being Billy Blanks’ Tae-Bo. There are also classes that you can take at the nearest Dojo in your city.

Before starting it is important that you always stretch and perform a quick cardiovascular warm up. This will help you to relax your muscles and prepare them for the hard work-out that you are about to do.

You will be taught a series of punches, kicks, and hand strikes – which you will be expected to do repetitively. When you have learned the important moves you will learn how to combine them together. This will help you with stability, it will ensure that all those muscles are being reached, and will even help you to improve your balance.

It is important to remember that kickboxing can become a very hard work-out. Start off slowly and try not to push yourself too hard.
