Although group-led kickboxing classes are popular, a few personal trainers also do one-on-one sessions.

Here are a few important tips on selecting a Kickboxing class.

  • Ask if the instructors are properly educated to teach kickboxing programs. Most instructors have boxing or martial arts training.
  • Its also important the instructors help you begin and then progressively incorporate safe yet challenging exercises as you progress.
  • If you get a chance for a demo class or a chance to visit the class first, do note if the classes are fun, safe and challenging. Can you do them?
  • Does the instructor modify movements depending on the needs of the participant?
  • Does the instructor classify people in to beginners and advanced and plan classes for everyone accordingly? You don't want to be caught up in a class too high for your level.
  • Although not necessary, it is a motivation if the classes have some music.
  • Last but not the least if you have a chance to talk to a participant then by all means ask for their review.
