9Round is your total fitness solution
Waldorf, MD - Looking for a new and exciting cardio fitness workout that will help burn more calories in 2017? Kickboxing classes may be the way to go. Kickboxing has been proven to help increase strength, confidence, coordination and give a total body workout. “No skills are required to begin a class. We even work with individuals with special needs,” said Wanda Brisco, owner 9Round Fitness Gym in Waldorf.
The word ‘kickboxing’ is something of a catchall term that can mean something different depending on the country. In the United States, however, kickboxing is more a blend of boxing and karate that strictly prohibits strikes with anything but the hands and feet, as well as attacking an opponent’s groin, legs or back.
The easiest way to start this new exciting exercise routine is to find qualified trainers who offer classes on various skill levels. Brisco told TheBayNet.com, “Many people start coming to our classes because of the many specials we offer throughout the year. We are currently offering a Valentine’s Day special and we are planning to offer a Summer Slim Down special in a few months. Not to mention, we always offer discounts to our first responders, military members, as well as teachers.”
The average kickboxing class will focus on everything from cardio conditioning and elements of dance to self-defense, martial arts, and one-on-one competition. 9Round Fitness is a versatile kickboxing gym that offers classes for people 10 years-old, and up with drop-in classes and free expert nutrition advice. “Our oldest client is 70 years-young. 9Round offers a kickboxing themed fitness program that incorporates a functional, interval, cardiovascular, and circuit training regimens. The programs consist of a proprietary system of nine challenging workout stations developed by a World Champion Kickboxer,” said Brisco.
She told TheBayNet.com that people enjoy kickboxing because it offers a high and low-intensity total body workout. Whether you’re looking to increase strength, confidence, coordination, or you’re just after a high-powered cardio workout, kickboxing will keep you coming back for more “In kickboxing, you burn more calories by using more muscles. Our routines are constantly changing to keep it interesting and to give our client the maximum workout,” said Brisco.
Think you’re up for the new kickboxing challenge and want to get started? First, seta personal goal and then start looking for the right instructor. The staff of 9Round Fitness Gym is licensed, bonded and insured. “Our trainers have to complete written, as well as fitness certification tests, and various competency training drills,” she said. 9Round is a specialized fitness center for people who want a unique, fun, and proven workout that guarantees results.
After selecting a gym, it’s also important to find out if it’s necessary to purchase any kickboxing gear. Some classes may ask their students to purchase ankle supports, boxing gloves, or headgear. Clothing should be neither too loose nor restrictive and a water bottle and towel will likely come in very handy.
Remember, whether it is cardio-focused or full-contact, a kickboxing class is not a kickboxing tournament—it is just practice. Students are there to learn a new skill, get in shape, and have fun.
