GoForItKickboxing.com?s certified trainers draw on two fitness methods to get clients in shape: kickboxing and high-intensity interval training. During classes, they teach students real kickboxing punches, kicks, and combinations that work the entire body while imparting invaluable self-defense knowledge. They combine these techniques with a high-intensity interval-training philosophy, which alternates between periods of intense aerobic activity and short periods of rest. The result is a workout that is fun, energetic, and can burn up to 800 calories in one session.
