"Good moderately paced kickbox routine. No yoga. The warmup and cooldown contain stretches, but no yoga. I would rate this a high beginner or low intermediate workout."
Great strength training

"Patricia Moreno does an excellent job of slowly building a sequence of kickboxing steps with jabs, crosses, hooks, kicks, balancing. I don't see much yoga, but for more of that I highly recommend her Yoga Dance Fusion DVD. This kickboxing routine instead is excellent for building strength through your legs, core, and upper body. I have been exercising steadily several days per week for several years. I'm in good physical shape and am slim and healthy. I still get a good workout (including cardio) as the routine builds in speed and complexity. I do alternate this DVD with other ones for other days of the week, but this one still leaves me with sore abs and overall core (good kind of sore), and sometimes sore shoulders and upper arms too."

"I am a black belt and certified instructor in TaeKwonDo, so I am very picky about "kickboxing" workout videos. They are usually either way too complex for people who are not trained in martial arts (i.e., the moves required at the pace demanded present a very high injury risk for those who have not been formally trained in how to do them), or they are done by workout instructors who don't seem to have ever done kickboxing outside of an aerobics class.
This is an excellent kickboxing workout video for everyone, martial artists and non-martial artists alike, and Patricia Moreno has clearly had formal kickboxing training. The moves are basic enough so that there should be a low risk of injury, but they are strung together in a way that provides great opportunities to practice strength, flexibility, and precision. Martial artists can always benefit from practicing these things, no matter how complicated or basic the moves, and the moves are very accessible to non-martial artists. The cardiovascular workout is great!
The only complaints I have about this video are that there really should be more stretching before and after the workout to reduce the risk of muscle pulls and injury (I strongly recommend you do this on your own before starting the workout), and one of Patricia Moreno's backup kickbox girls is just terrible! She has no precision and no strength behind her moves, which is unfortunate, since Moreno emphasizes both of these elements quite heavily.
I strongly recommend this video to those looking for a great accessible kickboxing workout."

"I am a beginner to kick boxing and working out in general, and this product was great for me! She was enthusiastic I found it fun, and not too complicated. I really felt like I got a good work out and enjoyed myself doing it. I highly recommend it for all those new to the whole work out game."
