Not as good as it sounds

"I'm not a beginner when it comes to home exercise dvds but I'm not an expert either. As someone else has said on the board, there are 2 very annoying things about the dvd:
One, the first 5 minutes of the program are advertisements that you cannot fast forward or skip through.
Second, the breaks between each circuit is way too long. I barely broke a sweat and if they kept it going faster, it might feel like I was doing a cardio workout.
On a plus side, the instructor explains proper form and goes through every move pretty thoroughly. Overall, it's great for someone who is new but I wouldn't say this workout will kick your butt."
It will make you sweat, but there are a few annoying issues

"Overall, this is a good supplement to a fitness routine. It will probably not get you in shape like running or other cardio-intense activities, but it is good for toning and a little variety. The best part are the squats - I can never seem to make myself do them on my own.

The annoying issues are:

1. The two commercials that appear before you can get to the main screen. You cannot fast-forward or skip these, so I turn the dvd on a few minutes before I want to start.

2. The breaks between the segments are a bit too long, so it's hard to keep your heart rate up. If these breaks were shorter, the workout would be shorter.

I love it!!

"After doing the DVD a few times, I'm finding my kicks and punches are so much better. Violet (a pretty Australian) does a great job of explaining all the moves - I love kickboxing but realised that I wasn't doing it correctly. I'm hoping to be able to take kickboxing classes at my gym. Violet is friendly without being overbearing - her cueing is great and is easy to follow. I get a great workout everytime. The person who gave her one star, was obviously not putting much muscle behind it - maybe she should work a little harder. I hope to see Violet in more DVDs."
Effective and informative

"I LOVE this workout. I have always wanted to get into kickboxing and this DVD was perfect for me! I really like Violet and the way she breaks everything down. Apparently she is a black belt, and certainly looks the part. The workout is great - I really felt it the next day. If you follow the instructions, and do the workout with precision, you will see result. I do the DVD every other day and find that it has made a difference. I hope to see Violet in other DVDs. She also has abs of steel - something I'm striving for."
