The Cumulative Effect of Kickboxing
When you first begin a new type of exercise you’ll likely feel tired and achy. Your body will be doing things it may not have done before. Certainly, if you’ve never tried kickboxing before it will feel strange to begin with – even if you enjoy it!
However, you need to think ahead a little if you really want to tap into the benefits kickboxing has to offer. If you’re unused to exercise it won’t take much to feel worn out the first time you go. However your instructor will take things slowly to begin with, so you won’t feel overwhelmed.
But as the weeks go by, and you attend classes regularly, you’ll start feeling a difference in the way you move and feel. This will be noticeable in many areas of your life. You’ll find the kickboxing classes become a little easier to do and enjoy. You’ll feel better. You’ll feel fitter. You’ll feel healthier too. You’ll move more easily and be faster at some of the moves. You may always be better at some than others, but you will still notice a general improvement in many areas.
It is this cumulative effect that really starts to take shape over the weeks. You’ll find you can enjoy the changes in the way you think, feel and act. These changes aren’t just apparent during your kickboxing classes though. As your fitness levels improve you’ll have more energy in other areas of your life as well. You can find many ways to enjoy that newfound energy. And since kickboxing gives you great self-defence skills too, you’ll feel more confident at trying new things and going to new places.
All in all, there are many reasons why the cumulative effect of kickboxing is worth hanging in there for. When will you experience it?
