Weight loss is always on our mind. I would like to start of my saying what I hope a lot of us have heard. Being skinny does not mean your in good shape. Our bodies need fat and muscle to function properly. I am laughing right now because I am thinking about one of my favorite TV shows on True TV called ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING. If you do not like the show then that is ok. Not everyone likes it and some people I have talked to hate it. But the point of the show is to encourage critical thinking by showing you that everything you here on the news and tv is not always correct. That is enough about that show. But the reason for bringing that up is I want to encourage you to use your critical thinking and look into your health. Don't blindly follow what is being told to you. listen to it, and understand that there is always a change to learn more or to learn a different way. This brings me back to weight loss. Losing weight must begin with a life style change. What ever you do to lose the weight you lost, you must continue to do that otherwise over time it will come back if you go back to your old ways. That is the point I wanted to get across. Weight loss begins with a life style change. Little things that must be done continuously. For example here are a few things off the top of my head: Less sugar in your coffee, less soda, more water, take the stairs instead of an elevator, raking your leaves instead of blowing them, using a push mower instead of a riding mower, eating smaller meals through the day..... Any of these done alone are useless, but they are part of a bigger picture. I just randomly chose some ideas. I hope I sparked your interest and got you thinking. Have a great day.
A student asked my one night what it is about punching the bags that makes you stronger. That is a great question. So the answer is resistance. Every time you punch or kick the bag you are met with resistance and your muscles are trying to overcome that resistance. The other nice thing about this is that it is a full body workout. You are incorporating many muscle groups at once to execute these punches and kicks. You are constantly using your core as well as your arm and leg muscles. We do some exercises in the beginning of class to target specific muscle groups also. I had to laugh and think about the total gym commercial with chuck norris. Its a full body workout and you can work different muscles groups without changing positions or machines, and it is easy to transition from one exercise to another. Well the same is true about our class. We roll right from one exercise to the other. That is why our fitness kickboxing program is such a great workout!
