Adoption of cardio kickboxing: a major market driver
The adoption of cardio kickboxing is one of the major factors driving the global kickboxing equipment market. Kickboxing is a form of martial arts, which provides a full-body workout, enhances cardiovascular endurance, and provides muscle toning. Cardio kickboxing works on all major muscles (upper and lower body muscles) and enhances balance, coordination, and flexibility. In cardio kickboxing, the players are constantly moving around in their kickboxing classes. This helps them burn a lot of calories.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on outdoor gear, “Cardio kickboxing is an effective form of exercise for weight loss. On an average, 450 calories are burnt per 30-minute session of kickboxing. Kickboxing weight loss programs include steps from boxing, martial arts, and aerobics such as punching, jumping, and kicking. Many leading martial arts gyms provide cardio kickboxing as a part of their fitness and weight loss programs. It also increases self-defense skills, boosts confidence and self-esteem, and relieves stress.”
