All Out Cardio

All Out Cardio is from Mindy Mylrea and it was definitely a major impulse buy. Mindy had a sale on her website--one day only. All of her workout DVDs were $3.99. How could I pass that up? So I didn't. I bought 9. So there will be a lot more Mindy reviews to come. All … Continue reading All Out Cardio

The Method: Jab, Kick & Burn

Jab, Kick & Burn is another Method workout collection led by Tracey Mallet. It is the second Method collection I've tried and I purchased 3 of Tracey's Method workouts. As I mentioned in the review for her Cardio Kick workout, the workouts appear to have been originally done as TV show-type workouts. The set is … Continue reading The Method: Jab, Kick & Burn

Cathe Live: High Energy Kickboxing

High Energy Kickboxing is another fun Cathe Live workout. This one is all cardio kickboxing and the only equipment needed is optional boxing or weighted gloves. I wore 2 pound weighted gloves and got a great workout. Now, this was a "high energy" cardio kickboxing workout, but not her highest energy. Still a great and … Continue reading Cathe Live: High Energy Kickboxing

Cathe Live: Kickbox & Barre

Kickbox & Barre is another Cathe Live workout that I found less then stellar. I really wanted to love it. I mean, I adore kickboxing and barre is a new-to-me type of workout that I really enjoy. I was expecting something along the lines of Kick Max--but shorter, so I could actually fit the entire … Continue reading Cathe Live: Kickbox & Barre


I cannot even remember how I came across Ultimatum but it has been on my Amazon Wishlist for a very long time. It is expensive. The trainer is Lindsi Sanor and she created an intense metabolic weight training¬†fitness program along the lines of Michelle Dozois's Peak 10 Cardio Strength workouts--except shorter. So I was definitely … Continue reading Ultimatum


KB2 stands for Kettlebells/Kickboxing Squared (I think) and it is a kickboxing/kettlebell workout by Amy Bento. I really, really wanted this to be an awesome, dream workout. Unfortunately, it was not. It has possibilities but it was not what I was hoping for. I really love kettlebell work and kickboxing, so just like when I … Continue reading KB2

30 Minutes to Fitness: Step Boxing

I almost didn't buy this step boxing workout. I bought Kelly Coffey-Meyer's original (non-30 Minutes to Fitness) Step Boxing workout and loved it. But I read some reviews that the choreography in this one was complicated, so I passed on it. I came back to look at the reviews again and I couldn't find them! … Continue reading 30 Minutes to Fitness: Step Boxing

Kickbox Burn

What a find! Kickbox Burn was recommended to me by a reader of this blog and wow, am I grateful! Patrick Goudeau is a new find for me (tho he has been around for a while) but this workout is a little different. He doesn't lead it. In fact, the top of the DVD says … Continue reading Kickbox Burn

Rapid Fire: Kick, Box and Core Burn

Rapid Fire: Kick, Box and Core Burn is actually Rapid Fire 1--the first in the series by Susan Chung. I so enjoyed Rapid Fire 3 & Rapid Fire 4 that I decided I must have them all, so I am slowly accumulating them. I only have one more to purchase after this: Rapid Fire 2: … Continue reading Rapid Fire: Kick, Box and Core Burn
