Women’s Kickboxing: From Improved Fitness to Increased Self-Confidence


If you’re ready to try something new, kickboxing might be the right choice for you—especially if you’re a woman looking to keep active and fit. Women’s kickboxing is one of the most popular classes at our martial arts studio. It appeals to women who want to build strength, improve their endurance, lose weight, and learn self-defense skills all at the same time! 

We’ve compiled some of the top reasons why women’s kickboxing is so good for your body that we’ve seen here at 7Spears Martial Arts Academy so you can see if this type of class might be right for you!


First, what is kickboxing?

​​Kickboxing is an exercise that combines boxing and martial arts. It’s a great way to build strength, endurance, and confidence. Women who practice kickboxing regularly report feeling stronger, fitter, and healthier. It is a high-energy workout that can help burn calories and fat. Research shows that performing kickboxing moves can be an incredibly efficient workout that can burn around 750 calories an hour. You don’t need to be a pro fighter or have an arsenal of moves at your disposal; all you need is some gear and a boxing bag or partner. 


Physical Improvements

One of the greatest benefits of kickboxing for women is the increase of your connection with your body and the development and building of skills that go far beyond the mat. 

Here are our top 15 benefits:

  10. Building an assertive attitude 
  11. Promoting a positive body image 
  12. Releasing endorphins – punching & kicking things feels good!
  13. Making new friends
  14. Having fun
  15. Developing self-defense skills


Mental health benefits

Women’s kickboxing has been shown to benefit women in many ways, but one of its biggest advantages is that it relieves stress. 

Stress is known to cause major health problems for people of all ages, so regular physical activity is an important part of keeping healthy. By working out regularly through a kickboxing program, women can lower their risk of developing health issues from stress like heart disease or migraines. 

Studies have shown that participating in martial arts programs can improve your mood and reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, hostility, and confusion. You’ll even sleep better at night! That’s because punching bags can be used as outlets for anger, frustration, and sadness—something few other sports allow. 


Increased Self Confidence

Feeling down? Many find that kickboxing helps them feel better about themselves, coming to class is a surefire way to put a smile on your face—we promise!  In addition to helping you get rid of negative energy, it’s a great way to relieve tension and release endorphins, improve blood flow and reduce muscle tension. We have great music playlists to keep you fired up and motivated. Sweating and working out is proven to lift our moods not only during the workout session but for the rest of the day, too. 

Another amazing effect of kickbox is increasing your overall confidence. From your physical growth and improvements to the knowledge you gain in learning new skills, the confidence boost kickboxing creates will translate into better performance at work or school as well as healthier relationships with friends and family members. You might even become more confident about taking on new challenges in your personal life after improving your mental state through fitness!


Ways to get started

How to get started? If you are wondering things like; How do I punch the bag? Will I need a pair of gloves or protection for my hands? Is there anything special I need to wear, or is it OK to work out in my everyday clothes? Is it for beginners? Do I need to know the moves? Do I have to spare with other people? The good news is that with 7Spears Martial Arts, you’re in good hands. 


Let’s take a look at how to get started with kickboxing for women… 

  • You don’t need any specific equipment when you first start out – just comfortable clothing (you may want to invest in some gloves and hand wraps if you plan on practicing regularly). 
  • Don’t worry about investing in fancy gear until you’ve tried a few classes first. 
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to box can join our classes. No prior experience is necessary. We teach beginners through advanced students.
