Kick Your Way to Fitness: The Fastest Way to Lose Weight and Get in Shape

Kick Your Way to Fitness: The Fastest Way to Lose Weight and Get in Shape

by Sally Brown (Author), Anne-Marie Millard (Author)


Kickboxing classes in gyms around the country are hugely popular. They combine highly physical exercise with the mental discipline found in yoga. The dynamic kicks, punches and blocks create lean, powerful muscles - while the intense cardiovascular workout boosts stamina and burns fat. The therapeutic benefits of kicking and punching shouldn't be underestimated either. If you're looking to let off steam there's no better therapy than a little controlled aggression. "Kick Your Way To Fitness" provides a range of programmes for all abilities including: 6 week beginner programme; 15 minute quickie routines; advanced workouts; focussed routines for tums and legs; and emergency all over-body shaping for special occasions; sessions designed specially to make the body burn-up stored fat. This is a contemporary system modelled on the ancient martial arts - which are also discussed in the book. Photography features author Anne-Marie Millard plus British bronze medal winning kick boxer Steve Robertson.
