You work out your entire body

You blast fat through built-in interval training

​You get resistance from the heavy bag

When you are kickboxing, you are basically working on every major muscle group in your body. This means that there is a lot more of your body involved in the exercise. When you punch, you work on your upper body and when you kick, you are working on your lower body. This is part of what makes kickboxing such an intense workout session: you are working out muscles from all the major muscle groups at the same time. Also, when you are rotating and pivoting, you strengthen your core muscles.
Research has proven that shorter, high-intensity cardio sessions lead to greater fat loss over a period of time than longer, low-intensity sessions. The rhythm of a kickboxing class naturally incorporates interval training, giving you time to catch your breath between high intensity cardio sessions. When you work through a combination of kicks and pauses, you pause then do the combination again.
If you take a cardio kickboxing class at a gym, you’re just punching in the air. But if you take a real kickboxing class at International Martial Arts Academy  you’ll use a Wavemaster (or heavy bag). The bag gives you a lot of resistance, which means that you will use more energy and strength to hit the bag, all leading to you burning more calories.

The class pushes through your imagined limit

Kickboxing is quite possibly the best work out that there is today. It is high intensity, burns a lot of calories and leaves you feeling good even while your metabolism remains high after the class. It really is a win-win.

You amp it up through plyometric training

When you work out on your own, there is not really a lot of motivation to really push yourself to the max. In fact when you work out on your own, it can be difficult to complete any regimented workout schedule. But in a group class atmosphere like the one provided at International Martial Arts Academy, you’re not only motivated by the instructor, but by the sense of community you have from other members. This mean that you are far more likely to push through whatever limits you think are constraining you and burn even more calories.
Plyometrics is a term used to describe superfast explosive movements. Kickboxing classes at International Martial Arts Academy are full of plyometric exercises like burpees and jump squats. Plyometrics help your weight loss process because it makes your muscles more elastic and supple, allowing you to handle workouts of increasing intensity a lot more efficiently. This is one of the big reasons why kickboxing classes are great for weight loss. Even after class is over, you’ll still feel the effects.

Some of our Success Stories
  1. Kery Sire
    ★★★★★ Best experience with a Martial Arts school I've ever had, bar none. The staff and other students are friendly and helpful. The classes are fun and extremely informative, not to mention a killer workout. Very different from a Cardio kickboxing you can find in a Gym. This is a real Kickboxing class but everybody can work on the own paste. If you're considering starting martial arts, IMAA is the best place to do it!
  2. Glynn Smith
    ★★★★★ No question whatsoever all the instructor here are committed to push you beyond what you believe you can do, and then some more!. The hour session is enormous fun and incredibly rewarding in both body and mind. I can not think of a better way to get into a great physical and mental shape so quick. The classes are extremely demanding and the instructors will help you push to the next level of cardio whilst simultaneously improving techniques. In a two month period I personally lost 24 pounds, increased my endurance, overall physical fitness and appearance..What more can you ask for? I can honestly say I have not felt this good for at least 15 years! I love the motto “never give up” . There is so much to gain from this class, self respect, respect for others, honor and pride. The whole experience has been a true inspiration. A huge thank you to Sensei Ruocco and all at IMAA. “simple the best”

They help you to achieve your goals and keep you on track. I was trying for years to lose weight with no luck. They guide me step by step. The workout is always different and fun. I made lot of friends and now we are like a team! I love this place! Best of all, I lost more than 40lbs in the first 5 months of training!
