CARDIO KICKBOXING MOVEMENTS
The kicks play a big role in strengthening the legs. This is especially true when it comes to the thigh and hamstring muscles.
There are different knee moves in cardio kickboxing which help to firm abdominal muscles. These also help the torso to be a straight and solid base.
Punches and jabs
When it comes to the upper body, these are what can help shape the back and shoulders. Performing these punches and jabs can help strengthen and tone shoulder and back muscles.
Performing the kicks and punches with appropriate power and precision will help to strengthen not just the lower body, but the upper body as well. Cardio kickboxing also involves a lot of jumping, twists and turns. This ensures that the whole body is put through a rigorous workout. Besides burning calories, it also increases muscle definition in almost all areas of the body.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN YORU FIRST CLASS: We recommend you arrive 10 minutes before schedule, so we can get you the proper loaner equipment, if needed, and get you signed in as a trial member. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing you would normally work out in. When lining up to begin practice, you’ll notice the instructor has a precise plan for the class. This is standard. The class routine is always similar so you know exactly what to expect during each part of practice; the techniques change, though! You’ll also find strong support from your peers. By the end of class you’ll be physically tired but mentally exhilarated. Once you have finished the class, we provide you the opportunity to ask any questions with one of our program directors as well an explanation of the class programs we offer.
My daughter is very much an introvert in public. The coaches and program here has really helped her establish confidence in herself! She typically won't warm up to men very easily, but the coaches here are so great in making the kids feel comfortable, extra patient and caring. She now goes running in and says hi to every coach/professor she sees. Can't say enough good things about this place!
We have taken our just turned 7 yr old son to this location on Saturdays for the competition class and it is just great! Coach Mh'mmd gives them an awesome workout...strength, endurance and rolling. We just started taking him this week to Thurs and Fri classes. Prof Inacio, what more can we say, he is awesome. The class is very attentive, the kids are focused, they are there to learn jiujitsu. The classes are not huge and the kids have several instructors to help. Our son goes to another GB school but the days we are coming here give him a different environment, he is very focused and eager to learn. Thanks professors Inacio, Mh'mmd, Ulpiano, for making John feel so welcome. In just a few days we have already seen a change. We have a much longer drive but it is truly worth it.
I'm visiting Houston from out of town, and dropped into class tonight - and couldn't have asked for a better class/gym experience. Everyone was so welcoming, really great instruction, supportive training partners, and professional all around. I highly recommend this place and will definitely drop back in when I'm in town - thanks!
