A well cued workout
This is one of my favorite kickboxing workout Janis uses punches, and kicks to really get your heart rate up and then comes a short toning section with kicks and punches followed by a class for practicing punches and kicks. A light tai chi based cooldown ends the workout. This is great workout for those who have some kickboxing experience or a lighter workout for the more advanced kick-boxer. I love Janis style and she has a great teaching technique. A well cued workout.- posted by B. Pennant
Another great Janis Saffell Workout!
Wow, that's all I can say! I am an avid home workout person
for several years and this video kicked my butt (and back from all the hooks
and jabs)! I just recently discovered Janis Saffell and I am so impressed with
what a great job she does in cueing and putting together an excellent workout.
I started with her Brand New Butt and More video and added the Hardcore
Kickbox, Tai Chi Balanced Workout and Strike Zone. Strike Zone I felt was the
hardest workout and most difficult, being new to kickbox. I would highly
recommend Janis' videos, particularly this one. Despite my dedication to Minna
Lessig's videos, Denise Austin's Personal Training and the Bar Method (all of
which I think are great), I really like the results I am seeing in my legs and
elsewhere from Janis Saffell. Five stars!! - posted by M. Black
Good strength training!!
This video is excellent for those out there who like kickboxing and want to really learn how to master kicks. There are 3 segments in this workout- all which have intervals of cardio, but a lot of balancing and strength is in this one! You start out with basic kickboxing with some cardio mixed in- then the 2nd segment is all drills- they use paddles in this one with partners but you can do this alone, and its actually nice doing it alone because you get to do each kick and punch TWICE- you really feel your obliques in this one, with all the kicks from roundhouse kicks, to hook kicks and front kicks- along with uppercuts, hooks, and punches- I really felt the sweat with this one. The last segment is more low impact cardio, mainly bobs and weaves and LOTS of squats- and side leg lifts to tone your outer thighs- slow back kicks to tone your butt- I find that slower paced kickboxing gives you better results because you can really focus on those muscles and feel the burn! - posted by Mandolyn
Great workout, even if you're not an expert
This is my second Janis Saffell VIDEO (I also own Quick Fix
Cardio Kick), and it's quickly become a favorite. I was intimidated by the
length of the workout before I tried it, but I found that it moves quickly and
is actually a lot of fun! Janis is very good at breaking down and cueing the
moves. I'm fairly new to kickboxing, and I didn't have much trouble keeping up
with this workout at all. I would recommend a more introductory VIDEO to learn
the "basics" before trying this one, though. All in all, this VIDEO
(plus a set of hand grips) works up a great sweat and gets you toned, too! - posted by PreciousJewel76
Ahhh! This is a great video. It is very challenging if you focus on technique; if it's not hard, then you're probably not doing it right! I like Saffell's instruction style and personality, and she has a good sense of when to push it more and when enough is enough. I usually get bored with a video after a couple of run throughs, but I can see myself using this at LEAST once a week. I mix it up with running outside and gym work, so I'm not totally dependent on videos. - posted by Larissa "Working on my fitness"
