For those looking to different forms of cardio to shred pounds ahead of summer, trainers say kickboxing is an exciting way to work out your entire body. 
The owner of I Love Kickboxing in the Bronx is urging New Yorkers to join the growing sport to get in shape, adding that it functions as a good stress reliever as well. 
"You're engaging your core almost constantly, almost every time with real quick roundhouse kicks," said Louis Viejo, owner of I Love Kickboxing. "Your core is moving... throwing your hands, shoulders, arms, of course lactic acid is gonna start burning."
