This DVD is really great in a lot of ways, and has many of the things you want from a workout video - beautiful location, great music (much of it a sort of bombay/hiphop/groove), good instruction that emphasizes correct form, well-chaptered, etc.

The only problem (and it's the same problem I have with a lot of these newer Gaiam DVDs) is that there's not really much attention paid to modification, or to people who might have issues like old knee injuries. While there's a lot of kickboxing workouts that are perfectly compatible with a relatively low-impact workout that is safe for your joints (especially your knees), this isn't one of them. There is a ton of twisting, all done in a semi squat position, which is very hard on the knees, and a lot of twisting to full stop, without any guidance on modification, etc.

If you don't have any joint problems I'd say you can probably do this workout and really enjoy it - it is a challenge and a good workout. If you have any knee problems or joint issues, I'd suggest try-before-you-buy if you can.

I workout almost every day and am always looking for new workouts, but I'm very picky about buying DVDs because too many workouts get old very fast. I really liked this workout, although there are some flaws.

PROS:
* Great cardio workout. You FEEL it in your thighs and abs before the workout is even over. Plus, I like that Patricia Moreno emphasizes how to focus on your core. Too many instructors assume you know this, but it's really good to hear it again so you can get the most out of every exercise/movement.
* No jumping. If, like me, your knees, ankles and feet need a break every now and then, but you still want a cardio workout, this is a good one for those days. I was totally winded at the end my first few times doing it and I'm in pretty good shape.
* Some people hate this, but I really liked Ms. Moreno's affirmations. She has a catch phrase, "if you give 100%, you will improve 100%" that she repeats, but I liked the reminder that I'm going to get back what I put in. If you don't need this, or don't like it, I would say just laugh when she says it, or come up with your own quip to think when she says it.
* Good timing on the moves. By that I mean, she doesn't do any one movement too much at a time, but comes back to the moves in combination so you feel like you are building up to something.
* Some people complain that there are no modifications, but she works into each move from a "base" move, so you can always fall back to that if it gets too hard for your level. As a person with bad knees and feet, I didn't find anything too hard, though sometimes I didn't bend as deep as she did, or kept my moves smaller than hers until I was up to that level.

Patricia Moreno leads this workout and she's really good. She cues well and is motivating. I like that it's filmed outdoors instead of an indoor set - I for some reason find that more motivating because I'm thinking of Summer. It's geared for intermediate to advanced exercisers although the choreography isn't too complicated.
It's a great calorie burning workout that helps increase balance and strength. If you think about it, you can really feel your core engage while doing this. The segments start to get harder as the workout goes on, and I admit I found the kickboxing combos a little challenging and took a while to get more comfortable with it. You'll really feel your muscles the next day for sure. My favourite part of it all though is the stretch at the end. It's so relaxing and deserved after finishing this. I've even done the stretch segment at the end of a day without having done a workout because I find it so relaxing.
Overall, this is a great workout. It will burn fat and get you fitter. I really enjoy it and hope you will too.

I have been working out regularly for about 14 years and bought this on a whim. I've been trying to incorporate at-home workouts on the days I can't or don't want to make it to the gym. I consider myself a pretty tough critic of exercise videos/DVDs.

That said, I was surprised to find myself really sweating with this workout. It's not one of those jumpy-jiggly videos where you pretend to jumprope and all that jazz. It's low impact, but you'll be so surprised at how sore your core is the next day.

Some may find the instructor's incessant talking a little annoying, but I find it useful in keeping my form in check. Perhaps when I do the workout more it'll start to get annoying, but not yet.

I have found that my form has improved with my gym workouts and overall I am using my core more often in other exercises.

Highly recommended!

I really don't know how to describe this workout "New Age meets Core Kickboxing?" I felt Positive, Empowered, Strong, and all while working out hard, I was sweating up a storm. I used weighted gloves on 3 out of the 4 workout (Not on the Kicking part)At first it starts out slow and gradually builds up speed, follow the trainer instruction you'll feel it and believe me, it's NOT slow at all. Patricia Demonstrates all exercises and gives excellent pointers and great cuing throughout. My favorite workouts on this dvd the "core energizers" and the Kicks and Combination kicks workout, to be frank the entire dvd is really good. The bonus workout is a very hard core plank workout, that's excellent. I'm glad I got this Unique Kickboxing workout, now I interested in Patricia Moreno other workouts. I give it 5 stars
