Upbeat background music, and fun dance moves. The only thing I found is that you would have to do the DVD about 5 times to learn the moves to the point that it would make it a work out, unless you catch on to instruction really quick. The instructor takes a minute to show you the moves but then goes right in to doing it full speed.

Fun workout :-O

"I like this because it's fun and energetic and it makes you want to move. It's only about a half hour of cardio (then there's the warm up and cool down as well) so it's the perfect amount of time you need to be getting your heart rate up.
Jeanette is really outgoing and encouraging and she cues well in this. You mix kickboxing and Jamaican style island dance to get a really funky workout. It kind of intervals for you so once you've done a tough segment of kickboxing, you can take it a little easier with a slower dance section. It's really calorie burning with the combination of powerful kickboxing combos and dance moves to follow.
I found this to be a lot of fun and as a result, the half hour goes by really quickly while you end up working up a true sweat. I highly recommend this to people who like intervals and want to burn heaps of calories. It's fun and not too challenging."
Super fun supercharged kickboxing

"I picked up the early release of this dvd from a local retailer and in my opinion, this is the best Crunch has done in a long time. I always enjoy Crunch workouts for their fun factor.
The dvd is a mix of uncomplicated kickboxing and dance moves. It has the classic Crunch set and background exercisers in colorful outfits. The music is upbeat and the instructor is good.
Several of the background exercisers are annoying and whoop and holler a little much, but I can ignore this. If that bothers you, you probably don't like other Crunch videos either and would probably steer clear of this one anyway.
All in all, a great exercise and I worked up a sweat. The moves are not complicated.
A Little Too Focused on the "Dancie" side...

"The kickboxing part of this workout is excellent - easy to follow but great for getting your heartrate up. However, I personally found the dance moves in it to be distracting and annoying - stuff college age girls would probably have fun doing. I tried to ignore it and just do some classic exercise moves during the dance parts like jogging in place or side steps so that I could just get through the workout, but eventually got tired of hearing the instructor yell out over and over again, "Come on, girls - touch yourself!!!"
I have half a dozen other Crunch workouts that I love and I was really excited to see them release one for kickboxing, but sadly, overall I really found this to be a disappointment. I'd highly recommend someone rent this and try it out before buying it."
