Fitness, or cardio, boxing is derived from the sport of boxing and implemented into an individual or group exercise program. Cardio kickboxing has become a very popular group fitness class and can be found in just about any health or fitness club today.
Cardio kickboxing incorporates total body cardiovascular training with sport-specific techniques with or without equipment. An hour of cardio kickboxing can burn, on average, around 1,000 calories. Be sure to contact your physician before participating in a cardio kickboxing class, especially if you have limitations or high risk factors such as high blood pressure or cholesterol, family history of heart disease , age, and certain body weight.
