Can you really get into great shape and lose weight training in a martial Art?
Yes, and absolutely!
Kung Fu offers many benefits both mental and physical.
One of the great things about the modern age is the ability to use technology to quantify, or measure, what we do during a training session. Science has told us that we gain some of the greatest physical benefit from interval training.
Interval training is short periods of intense work followed by short periods of rest.
This graphic, measuring the 10-12 minute combat training workout the starts a typical kung fu training class, demonstrates the effectiveness of our interval training.
In a short time we move though all major muscle groups, low to high intensity, cycling through different exercises with the heart rate never leaving the fat burning zone.
The fat burn is intense; with a properly designed diet, like a low carb diet high in fresh proteins and low fat proteins one can melt fat and trim INCHES in a surprisingly fast pace.
The cardio burn, strengthening of the heart, and muscle building all contribute to a longer more comfortable life.
Athletes have used this type of training for decades to maximize their workout, to make their time count. No two training sessions are ever the same at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts, even the combat fitness training is different each day.
Hard to argue with the benefits and even harder to deny the science!
So, if you want to burn fat fast, get a great workout, and learn something fun and useful you just might want to try a kung fu class.
