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.
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!
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.Read more ›

The only problem is that you can't do it while sitting in my recliner. All joking aside, it is a great workout!Published 13 months ago by Forever22
The dvd probably was wonderful, but it skipped so badly that it wasn't even worth it. I highly suggest anyone check out Kelly Coffey Meyer; her dvds are AWESOMEPublished 23 months ago by Tonya Parham
