5.0 out of 5 stars Rare gem for beginners October 18, 2006
By A. Beck
Verified Purchase
I've always wanted to learn kickboxing, but most DVDs are for intermediates, which often goes too fast and don't show you the basics. This DVD has a tutorial for the Top Ten Kickboxing moves. They include 1)Ring Moves, 2) Cross, 3) Hook, 4) Front Kick, 5) Sidekick, 6) Jab, 7) UpperCut, 8) Knee Thrust, 9) Back Kick, 10) Roundhouse. The beginner can take their time mastering these basic moves before going on the other 3 kickboxing exercises, which the viewer can choose. The beginner can also learn to do these moves right so that injuries can be avoided. Keli takes her time and shows you the proper way to move. This builds confidence and you won't feel like you'll fall behind when she goes a little quicker in her exercises. After buying this DVD, I can forget about the fast paste TAE BO DVD's, which seem to be for fit folks who like to look competitive. I highly recommend this DVD for anyone who wants to take their time learning kickboxing right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like having your own personal trainer at home ;-) September 28, 2006
I've said it before; - Keli Roberts is one of the top 5 aerobic instructors in the universe. She is amazing and if she really was your own personal trainer, you'd be as buff as a triathelete. She would get results out of you that you wouldn't believe. I've done some of her other workouts, and if done consistantly, there are fantastic results.

I don't have too many kickboxing dvds, and seeing that Keli leads this, I had to get it. It's fantastic. This is mainly geared for beginners in kickboxing and the impact is low and it's easy to follow because the moves are basic. She goes at a fast pace, but this makes sure that you are always burning fat and calories. If you are unsure about posture and your positioning, don't fret - she cues very well. There is also some options for different intensity levels, so it doesn't matter if you are unfit or not. I also like the safety tips they use throughout and the seperate instructional portion of the dvd that's done at the end. This will really help you learn all the terminology and exactly how each move is done.

Keli really knows her stuff. She has done quite a lot of kickboxing workouts in the past because she's good at it, so don't worry - you are in good hands and do this often during the week and you'll get some good results. I love this and highly recommend it. I find it fun too, so the workout goes by quickly. Pick up a copy and see for yourself.

I guess I am not in as great of shape as some people who bought this DVD... because I loved it! I didn't expect it to be expert/advanced since it was from the "For Dummies" series (a reasonable assumption), like some people seemed to think it should have been. This DVD has some favorable points:

1) Keli Roberts is a great instructor! As a whole, I am NOT one for fitness videos. I find the instructors too perky and annoying (like Denise Austin), even if they do know their stuff. I only bought this one because Fitness Mag tested it to rave results and I have enjoyed kickboxing in the past. Roberts is upbeat, but not too bubbly. Doubt me, watch the instructional portion of the video when she is demonstrating the upper-cut.

2) Great pace! Before my fav local gym closed, I went to the kickboxing classes there. This was a great replacement! And Roberts goes through the moves slowly enough you can get used to the combos without getting overwhelmed.

3) It is so easy to squeeze into your schedule! The way it is set up, you can do one or all three sessions, as time allows.

4) Once you have done it enough times, you can make it a little tougher while she is doing the easier parts by adding moves(like actually punching instead of pivoting) as you go through the motions.

In the few weeks I have been doing it, I have lost inches off my thighs, arms, and hips!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

I'd always been interested in learning kickboxing, so I began shopping around for an at home workout regimen that included kickboxing moves. One called 'for Dummies' seemed like a good place to start.

I'm so glad I bought this! I'll be honest, when I first got this, I wasn't in the best of shape, but I wasn't in horrible shape either. I did the Top 10 and thought 'oh, no biggie, this'll be cake'. Then I did the actual workout.

Or rather, tried to do.

I was flopping around, falling, trying to keep up, always ten moves behind. I got frustrated really quick and was hurting myself doing the wrong thing the wrong way.

So I stopped. Went back to the Top 10 and did it again. And again. I started doing the Top 10 every day, six times in a row, perfecting my form and getting totally comfortable with the moves. And although the tutorial is much slower paced, I still had a sweat going by the time I was through.

I did this for a couple of weeks, five days a week, six times in a row. Finally, I felt totally confident that I could get through the workout with no problems.

I managed to scuttle my way through it, but I was going slower than Keli, the instructor. For every eight reps she did, I was managing about six. I would lose my form when I tried to keep up with her because it switched from one move to the other quicker than I could set myself up to execute the move.

I finally figured it out. What I do is, each time, I'll do the Top 10 once, as a warm up, getting my muscles reacquainted with each stance and execution. Then, when I get into the workout, I've already got my moves down, and I don't have to fumble around during part of the main routine.

I did this workout once and I was bored too tears. It's repetitive, not challenging and the music is lame. Very low-energy. I would not recommend this.
