“It’s my job to make you feel better when you leave my class or workout than when you walked in. That’s my goal!” Shane Barnard – Creator of Urban Kick
In Episode 27 the Two Fit Crazies are joined by Shane Barnard, creator of Urbankick, an innovative, exciting and athletic format workout that is taking group fitness by storm!
This is a fantastic chat. Developed from scratch using her background in dance, Urban Kick grew to where Shane was able to leave her career as an attorney behind to follow her dream and spread good health and fitness to the masses. And, my goodness, aren’t we the lucky ones for this! Shane has “it”!
Using sequences named after such notables as Flavor Flav, Jackie Chan and The Terminator, Urban Kick takes a sports conditioning approach and combines punch and kick sequences with H.I.I.T. drills, for a multi-level, fun and heart-healthy workout. It borrows from different martial art techniques such as: taekwondo, karate, and muay thai kickboxing to create a total body cardio kickboxing workout that incorporates steady state cardiovascular training, metabolic boosting H.I.I.T. training and functional body-weight strength training for a dynamic and efficient workout.
