Cardio Kickboxing is offered to anyone looking for a low to medium impact workout. The class is offered on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 to 7:00pm. When you throw punches with weights or at a fast pace, you're working your core in a way that helps to flatten your midsection. You must engage your core to throw punches, and twisting your torso works all the ab muscles. Boxing also gives you a cardio workout that burns extra calories. Add 16 minutes of boxing three times a week to your regular cardio routine and you can lose up to 2 inches from your waist in four weeks. Simply throw punches while holding 1 or 2 pound weights for 8 minutes, alternating arms, then repeat without weights at a faster pace for 8 more minutes. This high intensity workout can burn 480 to 720 calories per class.
