Summary: Not Great for Everyone
Comment: I have been working out with Tae Bo and the gym for years. I have been looking for an alternative to the original Tae Bo advanced and have yet to find one that combines the full body workout and intesity that it provides. After reading the reviews here, I thought that I found it; but sadly I would say that it falls short on working abs and legs. Plus, the added weight on the hands are not good for your joints. This is more beginner then intermidiate or advanced and while her technique is good, it is not that challenging.

Summary: This One IS Worth It
Comment: I just got this workout. It was fun and challenging. You pretty much work all parts of the body as you do pushups, squats, lunges, various punches, various kicks (including the hook kick), lots of core work as most of the moves incorporated the core the entire time, partner drills (there are two members of the group who do all the moves without a partner so you get twice the workout doing it solo). The instructor cued the moves very well. If you don't feel this workout, then you need to put more energy into it. If you like to kickbox, this one is worth it!

Summary: Fun easy/intermediate level workout. Not for beginners.
Comment: The "Strike Zone" workout sits right between the easiness of Saffell's Quickfix - Total Cardio Kick and the challenge of her intermediate/advanced Hardcore Kickbox Circuit with Guillermo Gomez.

After "Quickfix", this one will challenge you a bit. But after doing "Hardcore", "Strike Zone" will feel like a day at the park. "Stirke Zone" is still a good workout for days when you are feeling tired and not up to the faster pace and more complicated combinations that Gomez offers in "Hardcore".

All in all, "Stirke Zone" is a good addition to your kickboxing- aerobic library. The group who works- out with Janis on the video is lively and the music is upbeat.

I would not recommend this DVD if you've never done kickboxing- aerobics before. Unlike "Quickfix", Janis doesn't slow down to teach you how to punch and kick. (Even in "Quickfix" she doesn't really get into proper form, but she teaches you enough so you won't feel lost.)

If you want to start kickboxing for the first time, and you are in good shape from working- out regularly, I'd suggest starting with Kathy Smith - Kickboxing Workout. It's got a good steady pace to keep your heart- rate up, while taking the time teach you proper punching and kicking form. Kathy Smith is the main instructor, but she has a multi- titled kickboxing champion with her. He gets a side window on your TV screen to teach proper form for every kick and punch. Once you know the moves, the champ offers an extra kickboxing challenge in the "choose your workout" section of the DVD. It's two combos that will really get you moving.

If you are not in shape, but want to get into kickboxing, I'd suggest starting with Extreme Makeover Fitness - Weight Loss Workout for Beginners. Although there are only a couple boxing moves used in this workout, it will get you into shape so you can move on to the challenging kickboxing DVDs.

If you love kickboxing aerobics, and want a bit more challenge in your workout, try Hardcore Kickbox Circuit.

Summary: Excellent, fun, and empowering!
Comment: I have been working out regularly for over 16 years and buying a variety of exercise DVDs based on good reviews, and this is one of the best and I feel so blessed to have found this one. It is a solid, challenging workout and so much fun, I'm addicted to it. Normally I try to rotate the exercise, from kick-boxing to weight lifting, yoga, hip-hop dance, etc., but this DVD is so much fun, I want to do this all the time. I am a petite person but this exercise makes me feel empowered, confident, and just feeling good about myself in every way. Janis Saffell is an excellent instructor with good cues. The music is fun and uplifting. Since I've been working out with this DVD, my husband has complimented that my butts got noticeably toned, so the results are there.

Summary: So much fun!
Comment: I love Janis Saffel. This video is a blast and I'm always sore the next day! Also, it's great if you like to work out with a buddy. There is a whole section that you can do with a partner or alone.
