30 Minute to Fitness: TLC

TLC stands for Train Like a Contender, which translates into this being a boxing series--or at least having one boxing workout on it. It is part of the 30 Minutes to Fitness series which means there are two 30 minute workouts on the DVD. One is boxing and one is conditioning; they're both cardio. No … Continue reading 30 Minute to Fitness: TLC


There is a somewhat long story behind me getting this workout and I will try to keep it brief so as not to bore readers. I have been intrigued with this workout for a very long time. But I held off purchasing it for a host of reasons--it is not cheap ($22.49 on Amazon), I … Continue reading Piloxing

Rockout Knockout

Rockout Knockout is another of Cathe's new workouts and I love it! This one is a kickbox-style workout and it is a lot of fun.

MMA Boxing is a very fun cardio boxing workout. I loved it! I can’t believe that over the past year I have hoarded so many Cathe workouts and put off getting this one. Pre-Xtrain, I thought “just boxing?” Hmmmmm--where is the kicking? How can I get a good working from just air boxing? Then I … Continue reading MMA Boxing

I am slowly but surely accumulating Cathe DVDs and because I am currently in the middle of Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution which is where all of my … Continue reading Cathe’s MMA Kickboxing

Ilaria Montagnani’s PowerStrike (4)

Ilaria Montagnani's PowerStrike is a 58 minute kickboxing workout; 6 minute warm up, 48 minute training time and 4 minute cool down/stretch. The “4” in parenthesis is because it is not clear exactly where this PowerStrike falls in the DVD chronology. It’s titled as straight PowerStrike, which would imply it is the first Powerstrike, but … Continue reading Ilaria Montagnani’s PowerStrike (4)
