Did you know that as we age our metabolisms begin to slow down? When our metabolisms slow down, it can make it difficult to lose weight or even maintain the weight you want to be at. Of course, working out is one of the most beneficial ways to boost your metabolism. However, going to the gym and going through the same routines each week can become incredibly boring and it can even derail your entire fitness routine.

Three Ways You’ll Kickstart Your Metabolism At JabX

If you are tired of the same workouts you have been doing week after week to try and lose weight and stay in shape, such as running, it’s time to try something new. At JabX Kickboxing, we offer kickboxing classes in West Hollywood. Our kickboxing studio provides a safe, supportive, and empowering environment for anyone interested in an alternative form of fitness that builds a healthy mind, body, and spirit, as well as boosts your metabolism. Below, learn three of the many ways that all of the punching, jabbing, and kicking in our kickboxing classes can help increase your metabolism.

1. Kickboxing Helps Build Muscle

One of the benefits of kickboxing is that it can help you build and retain your muscle mass — one of the top ways to combat a dip in your metabolism. Building muscle will help you improve your resting metabolic rate, therefore, you will burn more calories, even when you aren’t kicking, punching, and jabbing.

2. Kickboxing Is A Great Cardio Workout

When you think of cardio workouts, your mind probably immediately goes to running. While running can be a great workout, it can put a lot of stress on your joints. Not to mention, it is not all too exciting, especially if you are running on a treadmill.

3. Kickboxing Offers Interval Training

When you are doing the same workouts over and over again, your body can become used to them, making them less effective. However, switching it up and doing workouts that consist of new movements, you will get the best of both worlds by keeping your workout fresh and new, and your body will have to continue to work to do each new movement. Kickboxing classes mix strength training with high-intensity interval training, and since kickboxing involves ever-changing movements, each workout will keep you on your toes and work to kickstart your metabolism. This high-intensity structure helps speed up your metabolism and because kickboxing engages your entire body, you will generally see quick muscle-toning results.

As you can see, all the punching, jabbing, elbowing and kicking that takes place in our kickboxing classes is effective at increasing your metabolism.
