Kickboxing Training

About Kickboxing Training
Around the world, kickboxing isn't just a full-contact sport — it's also often practiced for self-defence and, in recent years, general fitness. Combining hand-eye coordination, core control and cathartic moves, kickboxing is a great way to improve physical health and fitness, leading to weight loss, improved body strength and stress relief.

At Active Red, our classes are done primarily for general fitness — the "fight" element has been removed from our Active Kickboxing programmes. Active Kickboxing classes are taught by highly-qualified and experienced instructors. Everyone can join our classes — NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

Our classes are done in pairs. If you don't have a partner, our instructors will make the necessary arrangements for you to be partnered with someone. It's a great way to meet new people... While working on your fitness goals!

Benefits of Kickboxing Fitness

Kickboxing Fitness can be done by almost anyone. We have programmes to suit a wide range of needs and interests, from juniors and teenagers to adults, senior citizens and even athletes looking to improve their performance.

A typical Kickboxing Training class works all parts of the body and covers all the major objectives of fitness training:

• Aerobic and Anaerobic Conditioning (Speed and Power Training)
• Cardiorespiratory Endurance (Stamina)
• Fat Loss
• Muscular Strength and Endurance
• Flexibility
• Agility
• Balance
• Motor Skills and Co-ordination
• Reaction Time (Reflexes)

Aerobic and Anaerobic Conditioning (Speed and Power Training)

Punching and kicking handheld pads and bags at various intensities allows for:
• Aerobic conditioning (speed training), achieved by working on handheld pads/bags at high reps with 30-40% maximum strength.
• Anaerobic conditioning (power training) obtained by working on shields/heavy bags at 80-100% maximum strength

Cardiorespiratory Endurance (Stamina)

Continuous punching and kicking on handheld pads and heavy bags at various speed and intensities over a period of time (e.g. 2 minutes) improves cardiorespiratory endurance.

Fat Loss

The intensity of these workouts will keep your heart rate up and the calories burning for a few hours after every class. Together with advice from our nutritionist*, you can expect further weight loss and achieve your desired body composition (weight and body fat percentage) in a few months!
* Separate consultation/fees apply

Muscular Strength and Endurance

The handheld pads/bags act help replicate the effects of resistance training experienced in weight training — so you can also expect to reap the benefits of weight training.

Our stretching sessions — before and after each class — will improve your flexibility and help you better execute your kickboxing moves.

Agility, Balance, Improving Motor Skills, Co-ordination and Reflexes
Accurately hitting and kickboxing handheld pads/bags will help you achieve better balance, hand-eye co-ordination, agility and reflexes.

Our Methodology

Group Classes

Our Kickboxing classes are conducted in small private groups of 10 to 14 people. This is to ensure you experience personalised attention from our trainer — and to facilitate your learning and mastering of proper Kickboxing techniques.

Classes are structured according to 4 progressive levels — Introductory, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Group Introductory Session

Your safety and wellbeing is most important to us — Introductory Sessions are mandatory for all new students.

Our trainers will teach you the fundamentals of Kickboxing and the basic techniques needed to participate in our group sessions comfortably. This session is designed for all new Active Red clients, regardless of fitness levels and exercise backgrounds.

There are unique differences in our Active Kickboxing Programs — equipment used, stances, class structure and terminology. Our trainer will also take this time to assess your current fitness level and exercise background. You will subsequently be advised on the appropriate class level to join — one that will best suit you.

To book your introductory sessions, please contact us to find out about the next available session.

Structured Group Sessions (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)

To enhance your class experience, we recommend that you book sessions according to your current fitness level.

We offer 2 to 3 sessions per week for each level, giving you the flexibility to book sessions to fit your schedule.

Once you have purchased our standard 12-session package, you can book your sessions by contacting us.

To ensure consistency and to help you remember your training day, we encourage you to fix your training day — for example, every Monday.

Private Sessions

Specially tailored for individuals who prefer a personalised Kickboxing workout programme, this is especially useful for executives who need the flexibility of fitting their workout sessions into their busy schedules.

This is also great for individuals who want to learn and master the finer points of Kickboxing with one-on-one training.

Private Group Sessions

Working out with your friends is great fun. Private group sessions can be arranged for groups of 3 to 10 friends. Contact us for the lowdown on our friend-ly exercise programmes.
