IFA FINDS KICKBOXING AEROBICS INJURIES ON THE RISE

Orlando, FL (July 13, 1999) The International Fitness Association. An online Fitness Center, IFA announced today that kickboxing aerobics injuries are on a sharp increase. IFA reports that with the steady rise in Kickboxing Aerobics popularity, more people are reporting knee joint pain in particular.

IFA studies have shown that the cause is due to high impact related injuries. IFA president, Chuck Krautblatt, says "Unlike other types of aerobic classes, kickboxing is faster paced and incorporates more high impact moves and many instructors are just not prepared for the radical difference in teaching style."

Chuck Krautblatt goes on to say, "Kickboxing Aerobics is a completely different concept. Martial arts instructors are now trying to teach aerobics and Group Fitness Instructors are now trying to teach martial arts. Kickboxing Aerobics is neither."

Chuck Krautblatt, President of IFA, is a certified Aerobics Instructor and Personal Trainer teaching Step Aerobics and Kickboxing Aerobics at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. He is also the Executive Producer of "Chuck's Body Shop" a TV pilot fitness show produced for the Chicago television market.
