I agree with the previous review that said this workout was good for low motivation days. You may say you will do just 10 minutes, but find yourself doing all four sections. That is what this workout is probably best for.
The workout consists of 4 segments-- each one with a different toning focus. That said, I eould not rely on this for that purpose. The first section is upper body focused. It seems more like straight boxing rather than kickboxing. The lower body focused section incorporates more kicks (well, of course!). The ab focused section does more torso twist and side bending movements. The bonus section is called something like "kickbox challenge" or 'blaster" or something like that. Anyway, it is the toughest section and has no specific toning focus (perhaps it is more cardio focused?).
That said, none of the workout is too intense. I would rate it high beginner-low intermediate. Intensity is increased a bit with a sprinkling of jacks and scissors.
The set is bright and airy-- it kind of reminds me of Step Works, but nicer. The music is instrumental and matches the workout well.
Janis and crew's outfits? Ummm...well..
