Halloween is a sweet time of year.  Kids are excited with trick or treating, the super-hero costumes come out of the closet, the air is typically cooler, leaves are changing and of course… THERE’S CANDY!!!!!!

I often get asked… so how long do I have to work out to burn off the basket of bite-sized candy bars I ate last night???

The answer depends on how many calories are in that basket of candy or the individual candy bar.  For example, usually a standard full-size Snickers bars has 250 calories and 12 grams of fat (4.5 being saturated fat).  Of course there are numerous exercises that can be done to minimize the calorie intake.  Spin for 30 minutes; go on the step machine for 40 minutes or run for 2.5 miles.   However, the saturated fat in the candy bar stays on/in your body and will remain there for a couple of days so….  Keep on burning those calories my friends!

Here are a few other interesting goodies and exercise to compensate stats:

Kickboxing at the Dojo or the Gym… What’s the Difference? Try 30 FREE DAYS at the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy!

You may wonder… What IS the difference is between the kickboxing offered at the local gym and the kickboxing offered at our karate & kickboxing dojo? Many people ask this question and we are always happy to explain the following….

In most cases, they are two different types of kickboxing with different goals in mind – aerobic or “cardio” kickboxing at the gym and sport or self-defense kickboxing at the dojo. Both include kicking and punching which by nature give you a great cardio workout. At most gyms, this is where the kickboxing routines focus. The cardio classes at most gyms are just for that…. cardio. A good workout without any other elements. Where this typically differs at a martial arts studio and what makes it a “sports or self-defense version” is that it involves learning strategies and proper form with these movements, plus a lot of footwork, body movement and blocking abilities.

At the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy, our Kickboxing gives you the best of both. If your focus is exercise, you will definitely achieve your goal. Plus you will learn proper form and how to move your body if you ever are faced with an opponent. The self-defense aspect of karate and kickboxing is equally important. Learn how to use these kickboxing elements properly and safely. Hopefully you will never have to use them unless you choose to compete in a tournament, but it’s good to have these tools just in case… And if you’re going to use them, proper form keeps you from getting injured. You will also increase your flexibility, strength and endurance.

Either way, you should always try a class or two before committing to any style or location. Find a school that allows you to experience the class so you get a feel of the instructor, the intensity of the routine and the general mood and environment, making sure it’s right for you.
