Natalie’s Tips to Be The Best..
You need to have something that drives you, find your goal; Kickboxing is amazing for fitness, toning up and especially losing weight but it can also be a very competitive sport. So you can train to achieve your belts and grading or you can fight and work towards being a champion like me! Winning and fighting is the biggest buzz for me, getting in that ring is the biggest adrenaline rush there is, I strive to be the ultimate best, that’s my goal, my motivation!
You’ll find you will need a strong core for kickboxing as all movement is from the hips, both punching and kicking involves rotation of the core. Also when you start sparring there’s nothing worse than a punch in the stomach that winds you, so learn to braise for impact and build those stomach muscles.
