Kickboxing classes, like boxing classes, utilize the high impact Aerobic and cardio training regimens that professional athletes developed to compete at a high level in the ring. Some Cardio Kickboxing classes focus exclusively on individual training, with a circuit training format including training pads, heavy bags, speed bags, and martial arts training. Other kickboxing classes include sparing matches, with head gear and padding.

Sorry, there are currently no reviews for Kick Boxing Classes
History: Developed in Japan in the late 1950's, Kickboxing is a form of full contact karate, combining many elements of martial arts fighting with traditional boxing. The sport has splintered into many subgenres over the years, but its use as a cardiovascular training style is mainly rooted in the Cardio Kickboxing system created by Frank Thiboutot in Portland, Maine, in 1992. The huge spike in popularity of mixed martial arts competition is simultaneously increasing the demand for kickboxing classes, leading many health clubs to adopt such classes in recent years.
