Knock Out Heart Disease by John Lippett

According to the Nurses’ Health Study, moving from being inactive to just 30 minutes of vigorous activity each day can reduce the risk of heart disease by 50%. A fun way to get those 30 minutes of activity is kickboxing.

Kickboxing gets the whole body involved using powerful movements to get your heart rate up and your blood pumping. The heart is the most important muscle in the human body. It works 24/7 to keep your body supplied with the blood, oxygen, and nutrients it needs. So this National Heart Month, team up with your heart to knock out heart disease!
