    Increase Strength With Kickboxing: How an Avid Athlete Transformed Her Fitness With Kickboxing

    Kickboxing is an incredible full-body workout that can help you lose weight, increase strength, and reach your fitness goals faster than more static cardio or weight lifting regimens. In this article, learn how one of our members – a mom of three and lifelong athlete – was able to transform herself by building “me time” into her week at X3 Sports. 

    Meet X3 Warrior and Goal Smasher: Kim

    We love when our members reach their personal fitness goals and started this spotlight series as a way to celebrate our community’s achievements at X3 Sports. Kim is a member in Marietta. Unlike many of our success stories, her goal was not weight loss related, though that was a natural outcome of her efforts. Her goal setting out on her journey was simply to increase strength and endurance. Read her success story below:

    We recently had another member reach her fitness goal at X3 Sports. Kim is a member in Marietta and unlike many of our success stories her goal was not weight loss related. Read her success story below.

    Improve Strength & Endurance with X3's Kickboxing Classes

    “I joined X3 in November of 2012. I was very active already but wanted something extra to help me reach the level of fitness I desired. The only goal I had was to increase my strength and endurance. I did not have a weight loss goal, but I did incorporate a weight loss supplement in my diet. Over a 12 month period, I lost about 10 lbs and 14 inches overall (4 of that in my waist, 3 from my hips). My body fat also decreased from 23% to 18%. My strength, endurance, and even agility has improved drastically by taking X3’s Kickboxing classes almost daily.

    As a 35 year old, mother of 3 with a full-time job, I look forward to going to workout each day…it’s my, “me time.” Im always looking for ways to make my lifestyle healthier, I use therapy and supplements to increase my body health.

    Kickboxing is a huge stress-reliever and the health benefits (losing weight, toning muscle and increased energy) I continue to receive are absolutely worth the time, money and effort.”

    Thanks X3!

    How Does Kickboxing Increase Strength? 

    Kickboxing is a form of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), which is one of the most effective workout formulas to increase strength and burn calories. HIIT workouts are defined by bursts of maximum energy output in between brief rest periods, which force your body to dig deep (and siphon off your fat stores) in order to amass the energy it needs to get through the next stretch of intensity. 

    To help you increase strength, we build high-energy classes that vary immensely each week in order to keep you constantly challenged and your body on the edge of its comfort zone. Variety stops you from plateauing so that you’ll be able to increase strength and lose weight faster than more traditional (and dare we say more static cardio and strength workouts, such as running).  

    With anaerobic and aerobic benefits, kickboxing is highly effective at burning calories and you can expect to burn up to 900 calories in a single hour! As Kim experienced, weight loss can be a natural part of your journey even if it’s not your intended goal. But as Kim also experienced, kickboxing classes are a highly effective tool to build lean muscle all throughout your body. When kicking, punching, pivoting, ducking and lunging around your heavy punching bag, you’ll build arm, core and leg muscles. You’ll increase strength and stamina while improving reactivity, coordination and balance.
