Another great video from Janis Saffell
If you have read any of my other reviews you know I am
really pleased with Janis Saffell's videos. This is a slower paced, feel good
video, which also makes you sweat. The combination of Scott Cole with Janis
Saffell is really great. Being new to kickboxing, this really helps to slow
down the moves and perfect the technique. Today I have a migraine, but needing
to workout, did this video which actually helped me to feel better, stretched
out, relaxed, while still getting in a workout. This is a good compliment to
other more intense strength and cardio workouts. Janis and Scott are great!

I really love this video. I've never done tai chi before, so
that part was an introduction for me. It is a fun, low-medium impact workout.
It is a really nice combination of kick-boxing and tai chi. I enjoy it, and
would recommend it, especially as something a little different.

I do not like to exercise, so a workout needs to have a
"fun factor" to keep me motivated. I'm also picky about background
and music (I like things brightly lit and good music that I can hear). This
video fit the bill on all counts. Scott Cole is quirky & funny, while Janis
Saffell is genuine & charming. The set is clean and bright with no
distractions and some of the background music was actually identifiable to me.
This workout was my first experience with Tai Chi and, while I didn't
understand the meaning of all of the motions, it was easy enough to follow and
a pleasant way to pass the time. I have been trying for some time now to find
kickboxing that I can follow, and the slowed down version presented here is
perfect for my klutzy beginner capabilities. I also really enjoyed the
balancing activities towards the end. This workout probably wouldn't be
strenuous enough for advanced exercisers, but for beginners and low
intermediates, I would highly recommend it.

What makes this workout fun and wonderful,for me, is the
slow and fast set of the Tai-Chi and kickboxing routines. I also enjoy the
friendly personalities and the chemistry of the two instructors who alternate
leading the routines. The Tai-Chi exercises are the slow intervals , led by
Scott Cole. He is very helpful in describing on how to make the movements work
for you. It's do-able for beginners. Next, the lovely Janis Saffell leads the
kickboxing routines, which is the fast set. You should know some kickboxing
moves to performs these. When I'm done, I know I've completed a strength,
cardio and stretch program all at once!

Good Beginner/Intermediate Workout
I am a huge Janis fan, and this is another great workout from her - depending on what you're looking for. The fusion of the kickboxing and tai chi is nice. There is a ton of variety here, and you won't get bored. It is also relatively low-impact, so for those looking for something without a lot of jumping and jarring, this would be a good choice. However, unless you are a beginner or possibly intermediate exerciser, you may not get much of a cardio workout. I consider myself to be at the strong intermediate - advanced level, and during some of the kickboxing sections, just when I just started to get my heart rate up, it was over. So, if you're above beginner level and looking for a real cardio workout, this may not be what you want. - posted by Shelley K. Gibertson
