Burns an average of 500 calories an hour (some estimates reach 810)
Targets your arms, shoulders, abs, thighs, and butt in one workout
It's an amazing stress release (how often do you get to pretend you're beating up your archenemy?)
Whether you are starting out or an athlete pushing yourself to the next level, fitness promotes a healthy life style, and I believe that everybody has a right to live a healthy life style. My orientation to fitness started out like most, via kid’s sports leagues and high school athletic teams.
However, it was the experiences I had once I began to train in kickboxing that an awakening occurred. I was a very average athlete, but I had a fire that raged in my heart, and this trait has helped me to pass the torch onto others.
I had always been competitive and restless and so I began training to fight. It was these experiences that had a profound impact on my outlook in life and with the clients I encounter to this day.
Whether you are a first timer or a veteran, my approach is the same: value the strengths of each individual and to not allow myself or my clients to believe in false labels. I believe that each person craves the same joys, the same praises, the same acknowledgements for deeds done well.
As a Personal Trainer and Group Instructor, it is my privilege and my duty to bridge the gap between “I can’t do that” to “I can’t be stopped!” Each person has a spark that just needs to be nurtured and cultivated.
Therefore, I am not writing just to the athlete or fitness enthusiast. In my experience there are far more people left out because they believe fitness is beyond their grasp. With that said, I am including the busy mother, the woman on the couch, or the friend with a thousand reasons or excuses why she can’t do it.
