BR Krav Maga & Kickboxing is the best place to train if you are serious about adding kickboxing to your workout routine. BRKM has been in Baton Rouge for almost 7 years now, and during that time they have continued to improve on their kickboxing workouts. (check out the reviews page on the website https://batonrougekravmaga.com/Home/Reviews)
The workouts are beginner friendly but still challenging to someone who has a high level of fitness. They are able to accomplish this by using techniques taken from HIIT (High-Intensity-Interval-Training).
Here is an example:
Let's say we have two different types of people in a class:
Person #1: Overweight, over 40 years of age and has not worked out in 20 years.
Person #2: Lean, under 30 years of age and has been doing kickboxing fitness for some time now and is in great shape.
The instructor gives 45 seconds to do an exercise like push-ups, while person number 2 may do 30 reps and it's a challenge for them, while person number 1 may only do 6, and it's a challenge for them. Both people got a great workout and are on completely different sides of the spectrum, and what's is even better than that is that every time you come you can do more reps and push yourself even farther, so it never gets old and every workout is a new challenge.
One of the other things that's great about BRKM's kickboxing workouts is that they are only 30 minutes long! And the results are amazing! This is another one of the benefits of utilizing HIIT training. You can get the job done in 30 minutes and anyone can do something for 30 minutes.
Another great thing about the workouts is that they are a total body workout every time! And you get everything that you really need, anaerobic, aerobic and resistance training, also every workout is going to consist of a couple of rounds that incorporate some type of functional fitness equipment such as slam balls or kettlebells. So yes you get weights also! And don't forget you're getting resistance when you are kicking and punching the heavy bags. This is one of the major differences in BR Krav Maga's workouts. A lot of local big box gyms have tried to integrate cardio kickboxing classes in their centers, but usually, they are just kicking and punching the air, but at BRKM you are going to get the real thing. They specialize in kickboxing workouts, it's their niche, it's even in the name! So you can bet if you want the best kickboxing workout that Baton Rouge has to offer try BR Krav Maga & Kickboxing.
