Training Tip Tuesday

Boxing and kickboxing are two of the best (and most fun) cardio exercises around. Anyone who is looking to shed some pounds should consider the hybrid Boxing, Kickboxing and Exercise program “Boxfit” for weight loss. What makes the Boxfit group exercise and personal training so great are the drills – which essentially act as intense anaerobic and aerobic interval training.

Boxfit should be incorporated into your weekly workouts to build more stamina and gain more muscle tone. In a Boxfit workout session it is possible to burn more calories than you can with with any other training method. My fitness pal estimates 1034 calories burned for me during an hour of Boxfit as compared to 600 calories burned during an hour of running and 862 calories burned during an hour of intense/vigorous swimming.
