Editorial Reviews


Includes a 16-page booklet of creative salad recipes from Cooking Light!

Burn calories, increase your metabolism, and lose weight!

This program provides everything you need to lose weight--and have fun while you do it. High-energy kickboxing moves keep your heart rate in the fat-burning zone, while the interval format maximizes calorie burn, increases your metabolism, and gives you the results you want--fast.

Define your arms, shoulders, and back using light hand weights and a variety of punches. Kicks target the inner and outer thighs and lift and tighten the glutes. The moves engage the core, so you'll be working your abs, too. Pick one of the 20-minute programs or do both together for a full, calorie-blasting workout.

You don't have to be a black belt to perform the moves--we've broken them down in a tutorial segment to teach the proper technique. Plus, since healthy eating boosts weight loss, we’ve included tips and recipes from Cooking Light, the magazine dedicated to helping you eat smart, be fit, and live well. You CAN finally lose weight--starting today!

Equipment needed: light hand weights

Violet Zaki, an international fitness expert and karate black belt, teaches at Equinox in New York City. Her emphasis on correct form and defined fitness goals--as well as having fun along the way--have earned her an enormous following.

NOTE: I received a free review copy of this DVD from the web site Metapsychology Online.

This DVD is led by Violet Zaki, who holds a black belt in karate. She works out with two background exercises, one of whom shows lower impact modifications for some of the moves. The cover of this DVD states that it provides "2 20-Minute Fat-Blasting Workouts" although there are actually several different options for customizing your workout experience. The Main Menu includes an Introduction, Workout Options (described below), Bonus Features (including kickboxing tutorial for those unfamiliar with the punches and kicks used), Also from Acacia, and Credits. If you select Workout Options, you are taken to a submenu screen which provides the various workout choices. First, there is a "Play All" option (51m), allowing you to play both 20-minute workouts back-to-back along with the separate Warm-Up (5m) and Cool-Down (6m) chapters. Next, you can select each of the two workouts, Power Sculpt (20m) and Drills & Combos (20m), individually, with the option of playing them either with or without Zaki's brief introductions (<2m). As mentioned above, the Warm-Up and Cool-Down are chaptered separately, so these can be selected from the submenu screen as well.

In the Warm-Up, Zaki basically just introduces the various punches and kicks used throughout the workout one by one. The standard punches include jab, cross, hook, and uppercut, while there are three basic kicks, front, back, and roundhouse. If you have chosen the Play All option, the Power Sculpt workout comes first. The general pattern for the Power Sculpt workout is that Zaki begins with a "heavy" weights exercise, usually a dynamic movement that keeps the heart rate up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! September 17, 2009
By nctmac
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Violet Zaki does an awesome job in Weight Loss Cardio Kick! Cueing is perfect, the production of this seems flawless. The DVD constists of:

5 minute warm up includes side jabs, front punches, hooks & upper cuts, lunge stretch, squats, front kicks & rear kicks, chambers & round house kicks.

Power Sculpting (20 min.)
You will need two sets of weights; 3-5 lbs for the heavy weights, 1-2 lbs for the light weights. Violet progressively builds on the movements. She alternates sculpting and cardio. Violet begins with sculpting; arm scoops w/ weights & shoulder presses, then adds squats. Cardio Blast with jacks, jump rope, shuffle squats and forward/back shuffles. Next, leg sculpting - lunges, squats, & kicks with jacks. CB with upper cuts and football run. Arm sculpting - tricept work, hooks & uppercuts. CB - Front kicks, calf pumps.... You get the idea =) There are two remaining sculpting/cardio sets. Violet finishes with 5 minutes of pure cardio.

Drills & Combos (20 min.)
No hand weights for this! Violet start out using jabs, hooks, uppercuts and builds from there. Next she works on kicks; front, back, & roundhouse. She adds some jacks upping the intensity. The rest of the cardio is comprised of different combos incorporating all the kick boxing moves.

6 minute Cool Down
I really enjoyed this cool down. It's better than most I've seen, which was refreshing! Violet stretches out the legs while incorporating some balance too. I enjoy her breathing techniques, which may come from her Karate background? She does the usual stretching for arms. The music is nice and relaxing =)

Bonus Material includes a segment that explains proper form for the kickboxing moves, I highly recommend reviewing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cardio/kickboxing video March 25, 2010
By mrsjmac
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Have to agree on the reviews. I viewed this on my computer before I actually attempted it and my feeling was that it was a middle of the road, medium workout, not what I was looking for. I've been working out for 31 years and went through the decade of high impact aerobics and the whole schpill, so am used to monster workouts, high heart rates and mega burns. Have done the Billy Blanks Amped and Full Throttle, and they're okay, but put my polar watch on just for comparisons on calorie burns, and this DVD went an extra 50 calories further than the TaeBo routines. I was astonished and knew halfway into this DVD that I was fixing to get my butt whipped, but for someone like me, I absolutely loved it and have been doing it six mornings a week for the last two weeks and have lost a couple of pounds through just this routine. Diet is the same, this took the weight off. I vary always with treadmills, ellipticals, other workout routines, and find myself more and more wanting to come back to this workout. She's very soothing and inspirational, no screaming, yelling or boot camp rhetoric. A definite must-have for anyone at any level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a great workout! April 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was actually searching for a Jillian Michaels kickboxing dvd when I came across this one. All the reviews were so positive I decided to give it a try. I had never heard of Violet Zaki, so I was a little hesitant, but her credentials looked outstanding. This is such a great workout. I like how I can choose to either do 1 20min workout or both depending on my day. Either way it certainly gets your heart pumping, and makes me feel stronger each time I do it! Violet has such a great disposition about her - a great trainer and motivator. This dvd certainly won't collect any dust in my home!
