Weight loss is accomplished by being in a calorie deficit; therefore any training is merely a tool on the side of energy expenditure with the net
balance being critical.
Intensity is directly correlated to expenditure (burning calories) so kickboxing in Dubai absolutely will aid weight loss and more so than low intensity steady state workouts.
With that said, you may wish to consider higher intensity methods will likely increase your appetite and be more taxing for recovery.
A combination of both high intensity kickboxing bouts and lower intensity recovery sessions would probably be your best avenue for weight loss.
This could be anything from 300/400 for a novice kickboxer and 1000 for a more advanced athlete. How hard are you willing to work, and how dedicated are you to improving your fitness and power.
As a kickboxing coach in Dubai I would conduct background screening, injury checks and mobility prior to starting your kickboxing workouts. Regardless, anyone at any level can enjoy this modality of training.
However, the more restricted your body is, the more susceptible you’ll be to injury and limit striking options.
If kickboxing is your main training and your not involved in another high intensity (high recovery demand sport) I’d recommend anywhere between 3-5 times per week.
Alongside this I would add 1-2 smaller strength and mobility sessions to keep your body moving well.
That’s not to say you couldn’t still make great progress with just 2 sessions a week. Ultimately you’ll get back what you put in!
