Meet a Cal Fit Kickboxing Instructor!

Lea-Anne, Elk Grove

Certification: Athletics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA) certified
Favorite exercise move: Squat kicks and more squat kicks!
Favorite indulgence: chocolate

Reason for becoming a kickboxing instructor: Being that I had a love and passion for martial arts, a fellow Tae Kwon Do instructor thought it would be fun to get certified in teaching cardio kickboxing and I was just tagging along. After getting certified and almost twenty-two years later, I was hooked and haven't stopped since.

How are your classes different from other kickboxing classes in the area? My kickboxing class offers various modifications to each exercise where a beginner can easily follow and complete the class as well as challenge the more advanced students while having a lot of fun.

Most impressive goal you've seen a member achieve: There are so many members that I have been fortunate to have witnessed achieve their goals through the years. One of the most impressive goals to me is a few members taking my class for over 15 years regularly even after they have met their fitness goals.

Favorite inspirational quote: "Life is about making an impact, not making an income." - Kevin Kruse

"After 17 years, the class continues to challenge me, it’s never boring, never the same, has given me the best cardio exercise I could hope for. I am always inviting other people to join the class because I’m that much of a believer. I always tell everyone, 'If you’ve made it to the gym, you’ve already done 50% of the work, so you might as well make every second in the gym count. Come to class and you won’t regret it.' Lea-Anne never disappoints." -Jaymie, pictured with Lea-Anne above

Cardio Kickboxing for Beginners

You can start getting a great workout right from your first kickboxing class. The moves are fairly simple, so the choreography isn't too complicated. You don't need to buy or bring any equipment — just your enthusiasm!

You'll learn basic punches, like:

  • jabs
  • crosses
  • hooks
  • uppercuts

Plus lower body moves, such as:

  • front kicks
  • side kicks
  • back kicks
  • roundhouse kicks
  • knee strikes

Cardio kickboxing classes typically include a warm up and cool down segment, and may incorporate core strength building exercises like planks or crunches.

Cardio Kickboxing Tips

  • Bring a towel — you will sweat!
  • Don't eat a heavy meal right before class. We recommend a light snack at least an hour before. You can pile on the protein after class!
  • Use the correct form for each movement, and ask the instructor if you need guidance. It's better to take it slow until you get the hang of it.
  • Remember to breathe! The pros inhale when they bring their arms in, and exhale when they extend.
