♪ MARANDA: KICKING, PUNCHING, RELIEVING STRESS, GETTING FIT. THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. YOU ARE WORKING HARD. THIS IS HEAVY BAG KICKBOXING, FITNESS KICKBOXING, AND IT IS MIXED WITH BODY INTENSITY, CORE CONDITION DRILLS, AND KICKBOXING COMBINATIONS. MARANDA: PEOPLE WILL COME IN HERE AND THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH, FOR A 30 MINUTES OR 60 MINUTE TIME. 30, 45, AND 60. MARANDA: HOW MUCH DOES THIS WAY? — WEIGH? 150 POUNDS. THESE ARE MMA GLOVES, THEY ARE FINGERLESS AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY. MARANDA: SO YOU HAVE SOME PADDING IN THEIR. THE PADDING IS DIFFERENT THAN A REGULAR BOXING GLOVE BUT WE EMBRACE BOTH. MARANDA: LET’S TALK ABOUT WHY THIS IS A GREAT WORKOUT FOR WOMEN. BONE DENSITY IS A MAJOR ISSUE. STRIKING SOMETHING OR POUNDING THROUGH JOGGING OR JUMP ROPING — MARANDA: THE FLOOR IN HERE IS SOFT. IS GOOD ON YOUR LOW BACK BECAUSE IT IS AN INCH THICK. ACTUALLY GETTING SOMETHING FIRES YOUR CORE AND BUILDS BONE DENSITY, SO YOU DON’T FEEL JARRING IN YOUR JOINTS IF YOU DO YOUR HITTING WRONG. NOTICE MY WHOLE BODY TURNS INTO IT. THIS IS WHAT IS POWERING THE STRIKE AND NOT MY ACTUAL LIMBS. MARANDA: HOW OFTEN ARE YOU USING THIS BAG? WE DO CHANGEUPS. WE COME DOWN AND DO AB WORK. LIKE THIS. ALL KINDS OF WAYS TO USE THE BAG. YOU CAN ELEVATE YOUR FEET ON IT AND DO A PLANK. WE DO BASIC BURPEES. LAYING SOME PUNCHES ON IT. WE DO A LOT OF THINGS, VERY FAST-PACED. WE ALSO BRING THE HEART RATE DOWN AND SHOOT IT BACK UP. THAT IS THE WAY TO MOST EFFICIENTLY BURN CALORIES. IT IS CALLED HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING. IT BURNS ENERGY LIKE CRAZY. WE BRING A LOT OF TOYS OUT FOR THE KIDS. HURDLES AND CONES AND RINGS. THEY HAVE A LOT OF TOYS THEY PLAY WITH. ALSO LIKE TO HIT THE BAG. IT IS FUN FOR THEM. IT’S AMAZING HOW WELL THEY LISTEN AND BY THE END OF THE CLASS, WE ARE STRIKING THE RIGHT WAY. SO THEY WANT TO LEARN. FOCUSED AND WORKING. MARANDA: DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN? TWO GIRLS, 4 AND 6. THEY LOVE IT. WE HAVE BEEN PRACTICING BEFORE — PRACTICING IN THE BASEMENT. THEY ARE GETTING GOOD. THEY WILL BE INSTRUCTORS BY THE TIME I CAN ACTUALLY EMPLOY THEM. MARANDA: YOU THINK ABOUT OUR DAUGHTERS MAKES HIM FEEL STRONG AND POWERFUL AND CONFIDENT. IT DOES. THAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME, AS A MOM OF TWO GIRLS. I HAVE SOME MUCH FUN. IT IS HIGH ENERGY UP. I WANTED TO BRING MY SON. YOU NEED TO COME INTO THIS. KICKBOXING ROCKS. MARANDA: YOU ARE RIGHT HERE IN DOWNTOWN GRAND RAPIDS. YOU HOPE MICHIGAN EMBRACES IT. I THINK WITH RONDA ROUSEY AND HER RIDE, AND THE CAGE FIGHTING, BOXING, IT IS GREAT POPULAR RIGHT NOW. I REALLY FEEL LIKE PEOPLE, BECAUSE YOU CAN REDUCE STRESS, IT HAS THE HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING, WHICH IS THE BEST AND FASTEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT, BURN CALORIES. ALL OF THAT MIX TOGETHER MAKES IT FUN AND ALSO IT IS DIFFERENT. MARANDA: I LIKE TO TRY DIFFERENT. IS IT OK IF I GIVE THIS A TRY? YEAH. ARE YOU READY, MARANDA? MARANDA: I’M READY. MY GLOVE SARONG. — MY GLOVES ARE ON. GIVE ME A JAB. LEAVE TWO KNUCKLES. IT IS A LONG, STRAIGHT PUNCH FROM THE CHIN BACK TO THE CHIN. JAB AND ACROSS, NATURAL MOVEMENT ACROSS. YOU PIVOT YOUR BACK LIKE. JAB, CROSS. NOTICE MY ARM AND CORE ARE WORKING IN CONCERT WITH EACH OTHER. MARANDA: I’M FEELING LIKE IT IS A WORK OUT THE WAY DOWN FOR MY SHOULDERS DOWN. YOU HAVE 28 MUSCLES HERE. THIS IS WHAT WILL KEEP THAT BURN AFTER CLASS CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT 48 HOURS. WE DO A LOT OF ATTACK, OR PEOPLE COME UP AND FREESTYLE. MARANDA: SHOW ME HOW YOU DO THAT. IT IS A COMBINATION OF A LOT OF DIFFERENT MOVES. MARANDA: YOU ARE TAKING IT, DOING IT ALL. I WANT YOU TO PUSH THE BAG OVER. MARANDA: THIS THING IS HEAVY. I AM PUSHING 150 POUNDS AROUND. I FEEL STRONG. SWING AROUND, AND GRAB IT. MARANDA: FUN. I THINK I’M GOING TO BE ENROLLING IN A CLASS HERE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. WHAT A GREAT WAY FOR FAMILIES TO COME DOWN, BURN SOME ENERGY AND THE STRESS — DE-STRESS. WE HAVE TEENAGERS WHO ARE FULL MEMBERS AND THEY COME WITH THEIR PARENTS. MARANDA: THANK YOU.
