Visually interesting video. But the workout itself is somewhat monotonous. Basically you do a few boxing moves then a jumprope routine, then a few boxing moves, then another jumprope routine, then a few boxing moves, then another jumprope routine. I prefer videos with more of a variety of body movements. If you like standing in one place while jumping up and down this video is for you. I find the lack of interesting exercise combinations to be a real drawback to this workout. This was one of the first exercise videos I ever bought and for about one year I only owned this video and Stephanie Steele's Knockout Workout. The Steele tape has a lot of problems, but I did it almost every day of the week because I enjoyed the moves. When I did Aerobox it was only because I felt like I should do it since I spent money for it. Now that I have discovered Tae-bo and Powerkicks I only do Aerobox when I'm feeling unenergized and need something mindless and monotonous that will get my heartrate up but doesn't take too much of my attention span to do.
Kathy is a bit too cutesy in this video. Michael is very personable and does a great job during the instructional portion.
