I've never found a kickboxing video I liked besides Tae Bo. Well, I've found one. Cathe created an awesome kickboxing video with great upbeat music. You don't need much room too. The warmup consists of alot of punches and I could get them easily since they are similiar to Tae Bo. The workout consists of alot of shuffling with punches and front and back kicks. She also does the flying Angle move from her Step works workout but you do it on the floor and don't turn. So I was familiar to the move. She also does jumping jacks, high knee up jogs and hamstrings"kick yourself in the butt" jogs. Cathe really is getting into the workout and so was I! It was really an intense workout. The second part of the workout consists of punch and kick combinations and Cathe cues really well. Its mostly low impact until she adds a front hop kick or a 2 round house kick,squat and then a hop round house kick. The high impact is more in the first section. The workout ends with ab work to Jurassic part music. Then there is a Asian type music cooldown.
