Easter is soon approaching and it is an amazing time to spend with family, but it doesn’t all have to be all chocolate eggs and bunny rabbits. This Easter, you can re-energize after a long weekend of pigging out on chocolate.

Having a few treats now and again is fine, even while you’re kickboxing training. However, after this Easter weekend, it’s time to get back into the swing of things.

Get Sweaty, Get Endorphins

Not only does sweat help to regulate your body temperature, but it also releases endorphins which act as natural painkillers.

On top of this, sweat removes impurities by opening up the pours in your skin and sweating out clogged-up dirt and debris. These toxins are a result of your environment as well as toxins from your food such as alcohol and salt. This means that a sweaty workout can help alleviate any long-term negative effects your weekend binge might have.

Now, it’s time to sweat out those Easter weekend toxins!  

Get Vitamin D, Get Positive

Not only can working out itself help to release endorphins and change your mindset but working out outside can have even more benefits.

After a long winter, take this Easter weekend to move your workouts outdoors and soak up those sun rays. The sun is a great source of vitamin D which helps reduce depression, and even fights disease too.

Healthline suggests that:

‘Research has shown that vitamin D might play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. In one study, scientists found that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed an improvement in their symptoms.’

Get Toned, Get Fit

Even if you’ve forgotten your New year’s resolutions, starting your workout regime this Easter is still a great way to get fit. Kickboxing is a great way to get fit and get toned, with Fitness Nation suggesting that:

‘you can burn upwards of 900 calories for every hour of kickboxing. According to Harvard Health, a 125-pound person will burn 300 calories in 30 minutes of straight kickboxing, whereas a person who weighs 185 pounds will burn 444 calories in the same session.’
