About PHOENIX Kickboxing
What is kickboxing?
Kickboxing has roots in the Thai martial art Muay Thai. It involves fighting with punches, kicks, and the use of the elbows and knees, and is now a widespread sport popular around the world. In Japan, kickboxing became well-known due to the creation of K-1 and its famous fighters. Currently, kickboxing is a popular method of physical fitness that is enjoyed by men and women of all ages.
What are the effects of kickboxing?
Kickboxing is the cardio workout using the whole body. Therefore, depending on body weight, calories burned can range from 525–840 per hour. Kickboxing is a terrific way to burn fat with an effect much higher than other sports.
Comparison of calories burned per hour (body weight of 50–80kg)
Kickboxing allows you to tighten your arms and back through punches, and shape your legs through kicks. Also, in kickboxing, movements twisting the lower back and hips are used, which can help to tone your stomach and hips. The movement in the pelvic area stimulates the digestive system and metabolism. A healthy body is not only made through a proper diet but also by incorporating exercise into your life.
What kind of gym is PHOENIX?
Experienced instructors are there to give advice on diet and exercise and support you in achieving your fitness goals. Also, many of our members want to be stronger and are interested in participating in amateur matches for their chosen sport.
Since both the studio and the stadium have practice spaces with a three-layered cushion floor, the burden on the knees and waist is lessened and training can be done while preventing injuries.
In addition, LED lighting fixtures are used throughout the facility.
We also have installed an air purifier, the Blue Air 650E for a cleaner and more comfortable environment.
Changing rooms and shower rooms are separately provided for men and women, giving female members a fulfilling environment where they may exercise with peace of mind.
