Okay, so I wrote about how much I love kickboxing before, so you probably aren’t surprised that I keep talking about it. But I wanted to SHOW you one of the reasons why I love it so much: the instructor.

Kickboxing Instruction Video
The following video is a short intro to the basic punches in kickboxing. You an do a simple kickboxing workout using only punches or only kicks to get in a good cardio workout on your own.
The video features Jen, who is the awesome Fitness and Recreation Manager at Green Mountain. She loves kickboxing and has taught me to love it too. I’m really grateful for that because I’ve definitely found something I love to do and really enjoy. She offers great classes every week and focuses on really getting the basics down so no one gets hurt.
I LOVE the staff here at Green Mountain at Fox Run. I’m winding down my stay here and just like they’ve helped me all along they are now helping me prepare to leave. I’m getting a little worried about it, just like I was to come out here. I know it will be a good thing, but changes can always work up a little bit of anxiety within me. I know I’ll have to find a kickboxing class at home to help take care of that. ;)
How to Get Started in Kickboxing
Obviously I’m a huge fan of kickboxing and use it as my cardio pretty often. It’s one of my favorite forms of cardio and is a great alternative to something like running or biking. It’s also a great compliment to add to your current exercise routine.
There are a few different ways to try kickboxing
- Go to a class at your local gym
- Find a dedicated kickboxing gym for training
- Do a kickboxing workout DVD at home
All the options are great and will lead you to torch calories and get a great workout in.
If you do decide to do a kickboxing workout at home, I recommend trying one of the following DVDs.
Jillian Michaels offers kick butt workouts no matter what style she is using. Her kickboxing workouts are especially tough considering her background in martial arts. She will whip your butt into shape with kickboxing in no time!
Billy Blanks is the kickboxing DVD master. His kickboxing DVDs sold into the millions and introduced so many people to the concept of kickboxing. If you want a great place to start I highly recommend him!
The 10 minute solution workout DVDs are a great option for anyone that doesn’t have a lot of time. If you want to try kickboxing but only have a few minutes every day, I’d recommend trying out this kickboxing DVD to start.
Enjoy your kickboxing!
