3 Reasons Losing Weight With Martial Arts Is a Great New Year’s Resolution, Scarsdale, New York

If you haven’t yet started on creating those resolutions for the New Year, it’s not too late! For 2017, pick some worthy resolutions that will have a positive impact on your mind and body. Martial arts classes are not only lessons in self-defense that can save your life, but the high-intensity moves are also a great way to help you lose weight. For residents of Scarsdale, NY, 914 Krav Maga provides classes incorporating self-defense training techniques and functional fitness exercises that will help you achieve your New Year’s goals.

Here, the instructors share three reasons why losing weight with martial arts is a great resolution for the New Year:

  • Targeted Muscle Toning: Because there are so many different martial art specialties, you can choose a style that will focus on your specific fitness goals. That being said, most martial art forms are full-body workouts, so you can count on seeing results all over your body.
  • Martial ArtsAerobic Exercise: Martial arts workouts are usually performed at a highly vigorous level, because the movements incorporate multiple muscles working at the same time. This will increase your heart rate and breathing, thus improving your cardiovascular endurance—and burning more calories.
  • Motivational & Fun: Unlike running on a treadmill each morning, martial arts programs are motivating and fun. Because you will consistently improve your skills, the movements evolve and remain challenging. When you’re trying to lose weight, it’s important to stay motivated and interested in your workout—following the same routine over and over again will quickly lose its appeal. Martial arts will improve your self-confidence and self-image, and the classes are always changing, so you’ll stay motivated throughout the year.

If you’re ready to make that New Year’s resolution and sign up for fitness training at 914 Krav Maga, call (914) 437-5353 to speak with an instructor about a class catered to your personal needs. You can also visit their website to learn more about their different martial arts programs, including Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
