Customer Rating: Summary: KICKBOXING FOR DUMMIES Comment: GREAT WORK OUT FOR DIFFERENT PARTS OF YOUR BODY.IF YOUR A BEGINNER THIS DVD MAKES IT EASIER FOR YOU TO FOLLOW AND DO THE WORKOUT...JUST DO IT Customer Rating: Summary: Great Starter to Kickboxing Comment: This is a great DVD for beginners that haven't become "couch potatos". It has plenty of variety for the newbie. Eight years ago I was able to keep up with Billy Blanks, but at 58 and having slacked off a bit, this was enough to get me going again without "scaring me off". I do workout to all 3 Fat Burning sessions at one time on the days I don't do resistance or weight training. It's great for adding variety to your walking or step aerobic training. If you're very active you may need to bump it up a notch. Customer Rating: Summary: This is a good workout for people who need to start up working out again Comment: This one was good and I actually enjoyed it. Its motivating and fun and it teaches you a new method of working out. It's not for pros (hence the name for dummies you guys), its for people starting out like me. So, if you want to start up again after leaving working out for a while this is great for you. It's also great for providing a good wholesome workout.
It's nice to learn this new sport, admittedly somewhat a limited education, and its great to take out some of your aggression! Overall a good buy.
Customer Rating: Summary: Good for beginners, great verbal instruction on proper form Comment: This is great for beginners. Keli is alone & teaches you w/o distraction in 1/2 time or slower throughout the entire dvd proper form for kickboxing so you don't get sloppy & possibly injure yourself.
It's broken down into a 17 min. instruction & 3 workouts each one adding more punches & kicks.
Although I liked she went slow, I found it a bit boring. A martial arts friend said her form was fine. I'm picky about body awareness & though she moved well, I look for a workout that emphasizes on using this for self defense one day. Hence emphasizing on putting real energy & all you can into the kicks & punches. Her emphasis was on working out alone & seemed almost wimpy.
You can see a preview on collagevideo com Customer Rating: Summary: To clear up any misconceptions... Comment: ...this IS, in fact, a video for beginners. In case anyone was wondering.
That said, although I AM a beginning kickboxer, I am not mentally or physically deficient, so I found the mind-numbing repetition of this video to be somewhat off-putting. However, it is an excellent resource for those attempting to teach themselves kickboxing. While I wouldn't make it my daily (or weekly, or even monthly) workout, I will go to the Top Ten segment to refresh my back kick ever so often. I say this with a note of caution: even beginners get bored.
However, I love Keli Roberts, and her personality and style (not to mention the fact that she's actually DOING the workouts) make me smile every time I watch one of her videos. I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking for a reference for kickboxing form.
