Velocity Kickboxing- Muscle and Fitness Magazine rates Fitness Kickboxing as the number one fat burner, with over 1,200 calories burned during a one hour class. This isn't gimmicky watered-down cardio kickboxing. You won't get hit, but you will put on wraps and boxing gloves, hit the heavy bags, punch mitts, learn to jump rope like a pro and shadowbox.
