1/6

 

CFP Kickboxing is an awesome fat burner, with up to 1000 calories burned during a one session. At CFP Kickboxing, you will be burning fat and toning up by punching and kicking a real, heavy bag. The resistance from hitting a hanging heavy bag burns more calories and tones your muscles up faster than if you were just punching and kicking the air. We keep the punches and kicks basic to focus on the fitness aspect of the workout rather than the martial art itself. Since the sessions are for both beginners and advanced members, it is geared for each member to go at their own pace and build up your pace each session. Unlike the fitness kickboxing classes offered at other gyms where all you hit is air, CFP Kickboxing uses REAL HEAVY BAGS to give you REAL RESULTS.

 

During the sessioin Kickboxing students practice striking techniques with a focus on developing core strength and stability.  CFP Kickboxing is an innovative mind-body workout designed to improve your flexibility, coordination, and functional fitness while cultivating the warrior virtues of clear mind and deliberate action.

Kickboxing Benefit #1:  Stress Reduction

Fight your way to a stress-free zone within minutes of a high impact kickboxing routine. The movements in kickboxing challenge several core muscle groups and will give you a total body workout, fast.


Kickboxing Benefit #2: Increased Confidence

Kickboxing helps you release endorphins which will change your mood for the better and help you feel more confident. Endorphins will also make you feel happier and more positive for several hours after the workout. Everyone knows a confident person is a happy person!


Kickboxing Benefit #3: Improved Coordination

If you really want to improve your coordination, you can strengthen your core and boost your reflexes through the fast paced punches and kicks in the kickboxing routine. This will give you a chance to focus your energy to execute each movement successfully.


Kickboxing Benefit #4: Burn Mega Calories

Kickboxing can burn up to 1000 calories per hour, and you'll be toning and strengthening your entire body as, you speed, up your metabolism. It's a high impact cardio routine that's great for weight loss and getting you in shape, fast.


Kickboxing Benefit #5: The Perfect Cross-Training Workout

Let’s face it the treadmill is boring and if you’ve been on one for several weeks (or years) and need a break from your mundane routine, kickboxing is the perfect cross-training workout. Just one or two sessions a week can help you break out of that boring old routine fast. Getting you the results you desire.


Kickboxing Benefit #6: Energy Boost

Kickboxing is a high impact cardio workout that will give your body and mind a boost, and will increase your energy levels. You'll be breathing hard and heavy. Sweating out toxins, pumping those endorphins and this process will give your energy levels a much-needed boost, better than any energy drink!


Kickboxing Benefit #7: Better Posture

Stuck behind a desk all day? Sitting and starring at a computer screen wishing that lower back pain would just subside. Well kickboxing workouts will challenge many muscle groups that don't get enough attention throughout the day, and you'll start to build up your core. Core muscles in around your abdominal wall are targeted with kickboxing routines because you need to use your waist and abs for balance, and to execute each carefully coordinated move. Say goodbye to those love handles and achy back for good.
