What is Combat Fitness?
For the professional female kick boxers, MMA fighters or boxers who compete on the biggest stage for the biggest prizes, they take a lot of punishment during their bouts. For the sane types who like their noses just the way they are, the payoff with this type of combat fitness training are well being, aesthetics and confidence sprinkled with a sense of achievement.
It’s a total-body workout, so you’ll expend more calories during your time in the Dojo. Plus, our training involves the recruitment of both slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers—slow-twitch for the constant motion of your feet and hands and fast-twitch for quick movements such as punches and slips. Because fast-twitch muscle fibers have the greatest potential for growth, most people will notice a marked increase in overall lean muscle, which in turn helps burn more body fat.
National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Education Director Rodney Corn says a 200-pound athlete (91kg) will burn roughly 455 calories per hour working the heavy bag and 720 calories per hour sparring pad work. But the combination of activities, addition of plyometric work and other fast-paced conditioning can easily send that number soaring (based on time spent training).
“For conditioning, it’s a great workout, and you get to learn something along the way. It’s an ideal way to get in shape and stay in shape. With the way our instructors uses new techniques, there’s always something exciting and different to learn
Croydon Combat Fitness is based at our 4,000 SQFT training centre in central Croydon. Specifically designed for combat training with focus pads, punch bags medicine balls, free weights and a huge 1200 SQFT matted training area.
