Meilleurs commentaires des clients
Par contre les exercices qui suivent (Jambes et abdos), c'est plus que léger! on en fait 8 de chaque et c'est fini!
++: astreignant, efficace, motivant.
--: exercices qui suivent la séance limités, enchaînement trop court.

I highly recommend this as part of your workout routine. I am a big fan of Kathy Smith, and this DVD, like all her others, is very well produced. I am not sure if the DVD would be as satisfactory for an advanced kick boxer, and I will leave that evaluation to the other reviewers.
If you have been working out regularly, and want to get into kickboxing aerobics, start here with Kathy Smith and Keith Cooke. If you are totally out of shape, start with something easier that will help you build some strength and endurance before you get into this DVD. I'd suggest starting with Extreme Makeover Fitness - Weight Loss Workout for Beginners.
**This is a kickboxing AEROBICS video. It is meant to give you a workout that is based upon kickboxing. It's not intended to teach you how to do professional kickboxing. If you want a fun and challenging workout, kickboxing aerobics is a great choice.**
I'm in great shape because of kickboxing aerobics. It's one of the few cardio exercises that really works the whole body at once. It's also empowering and fun.
Few kickboxing aerobic DVDs teach you proper form. This one does. Keith Cooke is a professional with multiple titles, who teaches real kickboxing classes. He is given a side window on your screen throughout the workout. He teaches you proper footing, form and how to execute the drills safely. Kathy Smith does the main aerobics instruction. She offers a few alterations for beginners. She also helps Cooke keep the instruction going at times when he gets too quiet. As a team, these two give you all you need to get started and to practice drills that will help you keep proper form.
WHO TO WATCH:
Watch Kathy Smith. (Watch Keith Cooke when he is given the side windows. He is going to teach you how to execute the punches and kicks properly.) Kathy Smith will show you easier alterations to some of the tougher moves.
Watch Keith Cooke or the female behind him, to the left. (She is introduced as Murmur, dressed in black and white.) Keith and Murmur have almost identical form. While the rest of the instructors tend to be a bit "dancy", these two are no- nonsense boxers. They have a lot of energy and tons of power behind their kicks and punches. Keeping up with Keith's speed will make you sweat, no matter how in shape you are.
I don't suggest following the third main instructor (Kelly Roberts). She tends to throw her body awkwardly off balance while kicking and punching. She's very "showy" and doesn't really follow Keith's suggestions for form.
HOW TO ADD MORE CHALLENGE:
Use weighted gloves and ankle weights. I use Altus Athletic AWK-PK Pink Walk Kit. While I hate pink, this set of gloves and ankle weights is mostly black with pink trim. However, the price ($19.99 for the set of gloves and ankles all together) is right and quality is good.
Do Keith's "Kickboxing Challenge". If you do the whole 55 minute "kickboxing challenge workout", you'll have Keith's 5 minutes of challenging combos at the end. If you want to do just his 5 minute challenge, you'll find it under the main menu in "choose your own workout".
Double- time the kicks and punches when Kathy slows down to teach beginners the moves. By the time this video loses it's challenge for you, you'll know the moves well enough to get right into doing them at tempo.
Once you have the moves down, you might want to try some more kickboxing DVDs. Here are some suggestions:
Quickfix - Total Cardio Kick (Beginners. You can do this before Kathy Smith/Keith Cooke. Just know that you won't be taught proper form. Do it only for a fun workout.)
Janis Saffell Kickbox Strike Zone(Easy to Intermediate levels.)
Hard Core Kickbox Circuit (Easy to Harder Intermediate levels.)
I like Kathy Smith and her communication on what's coming next. I've never had a Kathy Smith video and don't find anything negative about her. Also, I like the team she has put together for this video.
