Why Martial Arts is Great for Weight Loss

Why Martial Arts is Great for Weight Loss

Martial Arts can be a great activity for weight loss.  It’s not just your regular run on the treadmill. It’s such an entertaining way to exercise that you may not feel like you’re working out at all.  Taking an hour-long class kicking and punching will seem like it went by in no time.  On top of that, you will be learning valuable self-defense and discipline techniques at the same time.

There is a style for every type of workout that you’re looking for, so doing a little research deciding which style works for the specific part you want to work out is a good idea.

Though all styles of martial arts combine nearly all effective types of workouts including strength training, cardiovascular endurance, agility and flexibility. Depending on the intensity of your workout, you can burn anywhere between 500 – 2,000 calories per class!

Martial Arts is great for toning muscles. With most styles being highly aerobic and using almost every muscle group in the body you can get a lot out of a one-hour class. Just think about the time that you can save and how many calories that you can burn in a one-hour session as oppose to an hour on the boring stationary elliptical machine.

Now, you may be thinking that you need to ALREADY be in top physical shape in order to start practicing martial arts. This is the complete opposite. You can start taking martial arts classes regardless of how in or out of shape you may be.
