Cardio Kickboxing Movements

Performing the kicks and punches with appropriate power and precision will help to strengthen not just the lower body, but the upper body as well. Cardio kickboxing also involves a lot of jumping, twists and turns. This ensures that the whole body is put through a rigorous workout. Besides burning calories, it also increases muscle definition in almost all areas of the body.


The kicks play a big role in strengthening the legs. This is especially true when it comes to the thigh and hamstring muscles.


There are different knee moves in cardio kickboxing which help to firm abdominal muscles. These also help the torso to be a straight and solid base.


When it comes to the upper body, these are what can help shape the back and shoulders. Performing these punches and jabs can help strengthen and tone shoulder and back muscles.

What to Expect in Your First Class

We recommend you arrive 10 minutes before schedule, so we can get you the proper loaner equipment, if needed, and get you signed in as a trial member. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing you would normally work out in. When lining up to begin practice, you’ll notice the instructor has a precise plan for the class. This is standard. The class routine is always similar so you know exactly what to expect during each part of practice; the techniques change, though! You’ll also find strong support from your peers. By the end of class you’ll be physically tired but mentally exhilarated. Once you have finished the class, we provide you the opportunity to ask any questions with one of our program directors as well an explanation of the class programs we offer.
