Most adults lead a sedentary lifestyle these days. We tend to spend much of our lives sitting down. Once we get out of bed in the morning we get in our cars and we are off to work. Some people commute further than others either by train or bus. Whether you commute by car, train or bus, what position is your body in? Once at the office many of us spend the long work day sitting behind a desk. Others visit clients and sit down in their offices. At meal times we sit as well. After work comes the long commute home in the car, on the train or in the bus. Sitting down AGAIN! You get the picture.
All this sitting is detrimental to anyone’s health. When you are sedentary for most of your life there are many negative effects to your body. From a mechanical standpoint, sitting is the worst possible position for your spine. This can lead to problems in your lower back leading to a painful existence. When you are sitting for most of your time you weaken your heart and lungs ” the engine of the body”. Your energy level gets lower every day to the point that you feel like you can’t get off the couch once you get home from work. How many calories do you burn when you sit all day? The answer is, not enough! Weight control becomes very difficult. We all know how people feel when they don’t like the way they look.
Adding Kickboxing to your life helps to get you healthy!
People that workout have a higher quality of life. Adding a good workout will fix the problems caused by a sedentary lifestyle. What is a good workout? I believe a good workout is fun, exciting, mind intriuging and hits all aspects of physical conditioning. Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing classes are all of these things. Our kickboxing classes are fun. A one hour class seems to fly by so fast that you feel like your workout was only for a few minutes. Tiger Schulmann’s instructors make the class exciting and the fact that you are learning a life skill, self-defense, makes it easy to keep your mind in the class and off the stressors of everyday life. Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing classes move at a fast pace so you work your body’s engine, ” the heart and lungs”. Keeping your heart and lungs in peak condition will give you more energy throughout the day and you will need less sleep as well. Our kickboxing classes consist of resistance training so you build lean muscle. Lean muscle burns more calories than fat even when you are ” sitting” and doing nothing. Your muscles become toned and strong. At the end of each kickboxing class we stretch for flexibility. Stretching will reverse the negative effects on your spine so that you don’t to live with lower back pain.
Working out in Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing program will have you looking better, feeling younger and full of energy even if you spend most of your day sitting down. Come in and try our kickboxing classes and you will see the difference Tiger Schulmann’s will make in the quality of your life!
