Her website describes this as:
A routine that combines the best of the best put together in a time-saving workout that will give you maximum results in as little as 10 minutes a day.
The workout consists of Kickboxing, Cardio Sculpt, Yoga and Pilates and she suggests if you have time issues, you can do the first 2 sections in the morning and the second two at night.
I did it all at once - about 40 minutes.
The kickboxing was a blast. She has this great combo - a simple one - front kick followed by touching the ground. It is also pretty basic - round-house, side-kick and front kicks, jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts.
The cardio-sculpt was fun too. I didn't really enjoy the yoga and pilates as I did the othe sections, and honestly, I have enough *really* good yoga and pilates dvds that I almost don't even want to bother with these sections, but they were well executed.
(See my review of Cardio-Sculpt)
One annoying thing is - she does indicate that you will burn fat in the area that you are working (spot-burning), and that seems contrary to popular medical/scientific knowledge.
