In recent years, fitness centers have designed fast-paced kickboxing routines for customers who want the workout without the impact of sparring classmates. These aerobic or cardio kickboxing classes call on nearly every muscle group for a full-body workout that emphasizes fluid motion, according to AHealthyMe.com.

Typical costs:

  • Kickboxing studios usually charge by the month, on average $70 to $110, a rate that typically includes unlimited classes. Studios or gyms that offer drop-in rates charge around $10 per class.
  • Studio members are sometimes required to sign yearly contracts and pay an enrollment fee of $125 or more. Some general gyms across the country offer traditional and cardio kickboxing classes for around $10 a class or less with their memberships.
  • For studios that don't push yearly or even monthly commitments, some offer reduced rates for students willing to purchase bundles of sessions. There are bundles of 20 sessions available for around $275.
  • The cost for children is at least 20 percent cheaper than adult classes, for around $35 to $50 per month, on average. Kickboxing is considered good exercise[1] for teenagers because it teaches conditioning and discipline, as well as a good aerobic workout, according to TeensHealth, a site for youth fitness.

What should be included:
  • Classes are usually 45 minutes to an hour long. Many studios or gyms offer classes for beginners and the more experienced alike, but it is always best to ask the instructor about the level of other students in the class.
  • Most instructors begin with a 15-minute warm-up period that may utilize basic stretching or jumping rope. There will be at least a half hour of concentrated kickboxing, which can include punching and kicking a heavy bag, or sparring with classmates or the instructor. A brief cool down period generally follows.
  • Students workout barefoot or in low-tread athletic shoes and should wear comfortable workout apparel. Kickboxers traditionally wear loose fitting shorts or long pants to promote greater leg flexibility.
Additional costs:
  • Few studios provide fighting gloves or other free headgear, fighting gloves and other protective equipment, although some offer a pair of free gloves for new members. KarateDepot.com sells basic boxing gloves[2] for $20 to $35. Gloves for kids cost around $15.
  • For more sparring gear [3] , it is often less expensive to buy protective items by the set[4] for $55 to $90, which includes headgear, gloves and leg guards and a mouthpiece.
Shopping for kickboxing classes:
  • Before taking a class or committing to a club membership, visit a kickboxing class to observe the level of physical contact and training style of the instructor. AHealthyMe.com offers tips on choosing the right cardio kickboxing class.
