Good morning everyone!
I’ve been taking a Cardiokick class at my local YMCA for over 2 years now off an on. The instructor is a strong, tough, and smart-a** (I’m saying a** a lot in this post..lol), certified black belt karate instructor. I love him!! Although he can be tough, he always takes the time to appreciate those in his class and actually focuses on helping you reach your goal. For instance, my sister and I told him that we are both trying to lose weight and my sister specifically told him she wanted to be bikini ready for the summer. He has been on our a** every class since then! The class is a full hour and we easily burn 800-1000 calories per class. Think high-intensity kicking, punching, jumping, squatting, running, and some abs at the end. Wow! Just writing that got my heart-rate going!
Needless to say, this is my go to class for a major workout! If they offer it close to you I suggest giving it a try. It’s not easy…but once you are dedicated to it your body begins to accept the challenge.
What is your favorite go to class for a major workout??
P.S. Just wanted to send my condolences to my buddy Ali from FoodFitnessFashion.com! So sorry about your fur-sister Scarlett but glad she’s in a better place – pain-free! Your post had me crying at work! My thoughts and prayers to your parents too!
