Cardio Kickboxing

If you’re looking to spice up your basic workout routine, look no further. Cardio kickboxing blends martial arts and cardio for a fun, high-energy class that will help you burn hundreds of calories like it’s nothing.

As the class advances, we will incorporate jump roping, hand weights, and punching bags. In Makhuwa Brazilian JiuJitsu’s cardio kickboxing class, you’ll get your heart rate up, boost your endurance, and work every part of your body – all while having the time of your life!

Cardio Kickboxing

Burns Calories

Did you know that after just an hour spent in a cardio kickboxing class, you’re burning about 450 calories? Cardio kickboxing is ideal for bolstering your metabolism and keeping your body lean and fit. If you’re hoping to shed a few pounds or maintain that ideal weight you finally reached, cardio kickboxing should be your workout of choice.

So, what’s the secret? Cardio kickboxing often causes a calorie deficit, meaning that you’re burning more calories than you’ve consumed. This is the key to losing unhealthy fat, keeping your body in tip-top shape, and protecting you from sickness and disease.

Builds Endurance

Between interval training, strength-building drills, and aerobic conditioning, nothing builds endurance like cardio kickboxing. Despite what you may think, endurance isn’t just necessary for professional athletes or marathon runners. Not only is endurance essential for everyday tasks, but it maintains heart and lung health and can protect you from various diseases. As you build up your endurance from all those fast-paced kicks and punches, you’ll find all your other exercises become easier. Say goodbye to feeling winded after a long trip up the stairs!


Improves Energy Levels

While many forms of exercise leave their practitioners feeling drained, cardio kickboxing is known for doing the exact opposite. By improving oxygen circulation and blood flow, cardio kickboxing will help your energy levels soar. You’ll soon find yourself feeling more energized throughout the day as you work, run errands, and do chores.

Strengthens Mental Health

Last, but certainly not least, let’s talk about the mental health benefits of cardio kickboxing. At Makhuwa Brazilian JiuJitsu, mental health is just as important as physical health. That’s why we’re so passionate about sharing our cardio kickboxing course with as many students as possible. This form of exercise provides a safe space for you to release feelings of frustration, worry, and stress, all while releasing your brain’s “happy chemicals.” Makhuwa Brazilian JiuJitsu promotes an uplifting environment where students support one another and athletes feel free to grow through trial and error.
