In todays world things are instant. If you want to buy something you can go on amazon push a button and have it at your house that day if you want. If you want to watch a tv show you can just talk into your tv remote and it will come on the screen. It is important to remember that success is not instant. It takes time and consistent effort. You might not see the results you want after a day or two or even after a week or two. But you will see progress and that is the important thing . You have to be able to see the little progress day to day or week to week. Keep doing that and eventually you will see the goal you want :)
Balance in your diet
Hard work will get you in good shape. But what you eat is very important. Think about it like this. Your car runs on gas. How well would your car run if you filled it with apple juice? Apple juice might be good for us but not for a car. So you have to fuel your body with the right fuel. Your body has the amazing ability to heal itself and grow muscle to deal with the stress we put on it. Just remember your body can't do that very well if your fueling it with donuts and pepsi. Be aware of how your fueling your body and ill see you in for class :)
wEIGHT LOSS!! wE CAN HELP.
Remember our kickboxing program is a fitness program. There is no contact. Its all about helping you be the best you you can be. Our class is high energy and non stop action the entire time. With that being said , you can take the class at your pace. Just the other day I was talking to a student who sad she tried a class before ours and she said there was a lot of advanced and new people. However the class catered toward the advanced. We try to eliminate that by giving quick options to let you take it to the next level if your ready. My point with all of this is if you want to lose weight you will love our class. You will get a full body workout that will help you burn fat and you will have fun with great music while doing it.
GET YOUR BEACH BODY READY
I love the fact that everyone knows what this means and I love that I hear people say this when summer starts getting close.
I WANT TO MAKE THIS CLEAR. MY BEACH BODY IS DIFFERENT THEN YOUR BEACH BODY. YOUR BEACH BODY IS DIFFERENT THEN SOMEONE ELSE S BEACH BODY.
What I mean is you do not have to have a flat stomach and six pack abs. The popular vision of what we " should " look like is unrealistic. So don't set outrageous goals for yourself that would require you to spend 4-5 hours at the gym each day. I know I don't have that much free time. But I do have the time to workout enough to be healthy and maintain strong muscle tone. Thats my beach body.
So the reason I said I love hearing people say " I gotta get ready for the beach" is because it motivates them to work a little harder to reach a goal. So with all that in mind, lets get to work on getting your beach body ready.
How many sit ups do you do a day?
I heard a reporter once ask Muhammad Ali how many sit ups he does a day. He said I do not know because I don't count them. I only start counting when its starts to hurt. Thats how you become a champion. I love this attitude and I know if you would think like this during your workout it would help take you to the next level. Keep this in mind. Sure you might feel tired after a punching drill, but did you really feel that burn? That is when it really starts to count. Try to feel that burn with every kick drill we do and you will see a great increase in your kicking strength.
No classes this saturday
Our kickboxing program is not about fighting. We are focused on getting a great workout in by loosing weight and building tone muscle. Classes are always challenging and you get to pace yourself. You have your bag to work on and our instructors will be around to help you. You get your time to push yourself to your limit, with our instructors encouraging you to do a little more haha. But no matter how long you have been doing class there is always a way to make it more challenging. We can always modify an exercise to make it more challenging or less challenging. This is why our class can be taken by anyone at any age :)
March 19th, 2018
Someone recently came in for their 1st class and after class said they loved it. She asked me what she should expect to see from the class. What kind of results would she get. I told her that since the class is a good mix of cardio and strengthening that she would notice clothing sizes start to drop. You might see a decrease in weight. However because we are working on building tone muscle, you might not see your weight go down it may actually go up a little, but you will notice you have more energy and your clothes fitting a bit looser. You will notice the changes in your strength during class where you were once only able to hold a pushup position you can now actually do a push up.
