High Intensity Cardio

If you are looking for a cardio class that will make you sweat, burn a high number of calories and support muscle growth, Fight Fit is a great choice for you. A Fight Fit class at UFC Gym Vietnam will have 10 students at most, which means that you will be able to practice all your moves while still receiving specialised attention from the coach.

Some of the simple movements from this class include: medicine ball work, planks, weights, variations of squats and so on. Each movement/exercise will focus on a specific muscle group. Most sets are only 30 seconds so you will be changing and moving constantly, enhancing your flexibility and agility.

Simple yet Effective

Even by simply observing, you can see that many movements are relatively simple and centered around basic rotations. The secret is the timing and technique for each set. Fight Fit coach Thanh Duong shared, “a Fight Fit class depends on the timing of the coach and the students. In my class, the duration of each set is 30 seconds. This helps the students to not become too tired after each move so that they are able to complete one round.”

In addition, the benefit of group exercise is that you will be motivated to complete your round. Studies have shown that, when practicing in a group, people will push themselves further so as not to be the “last” member. So, even if you are tired, the chances are that you will try your hardest to get through each exercise. A Fight Fit class is relatively simple, it is not as complex as other classes such as Muay Thai or Kickboxing, however you will still burn calories and build muscle.
