The new year has arrived and you know what that means – it’s time to renew those “new year, new me” resolutions once again. Some people may be determined to find a new job, while others may be motivated to jump back into the dating pool. The best resolutions are often very simple, such as leading a happy and healthy life. If you want to achieve these goals this year, try taking kickboxing classes and witness the benefits firsthand!
1) Have a new passion in life
When there are no changes to your daily routine, life can get boring very quickly. While leading a stable life isn’t always a bad thing, trying new things can lead to new found motivation and purpose in life. Having a new passion in life can lead to happiness, as it gives you something to look forward to after work or on weekends.
2) Feel calm and zen
What’s a better way to destress than punching and kicking vigorously? Other than getting a great full body workout, kickboxing can help you feel a sense of relief after an intense session. As exercise releases endorphins, it is an ideal way to start your day out right.
3) Feel a sense of accomplishment
Some of us are lazy by default, but if we don’t challenge ourselves once in a while, we can easily feel bored and unmotivated in life. Kickboxing classes usually take a toll on people in the beginning, but after a few classes, your body gets used to the rigorous exercise and you can do more punches and kicks as you go on. As your endurance levels increase, this helps you feel a great sense of accomplishment.
4) Learn new skills
Other than toning your body and building muscle, learning new skills keeps an aging mind sharp, especially for working people. In school we constantly stimulate our minds by learning new things, but after we graduate and start working, we have fewer opportunities to learn new skills. As learning new skills requires active engagement and a working memory, kickboxing will keep you feeling mentally sharp.
5) Feel empowered
When we’re having a bad day, we may feel weak and helpless – in order to get out of this rut, kickboxing will help you feel empowered, as you gain more strength from each punch and kick. Other than physical strength, you also learn valuable self defense skills in kickboxing.
The New Year may give us motivation to improve our lives, but the key to success with New Year’s resolutions is a positive mindset and endurance. If you need motivation to go to kickboxing classes on a regular basis, get a workout buddy so you can motivate each other!
