This is an overview, as I did not take notes when doing the workout. Triple Threat consists of 3 workout segments: Cardio Kickboxing, a med ball workout, and a yoga/stretch workout. Each segment is approx. 30 minutes. I have not tried the yogo workout yet, so I will only comment on the first 2.

I enjoyed the kickboxing segment. I consider myself to be advanced with cardio, and I often modify up. I would consider it to be intermediate to higher intermediate. I used my tae bo ball throughout & felt a good workout. Had I not, I think it may have felt too easy. The moves are typical kickbox punches & kicks, but Kimberly's style of instruction makes them seem more enjoyable. The routine is at a good pace. (not as fast a Tae Bo Get Ripped Advanced, but fast enough to feel challenged). The production quality of this workout, especially the sound, are quite poor. It appears to have been recorded in the aerobics studio of a gym, which may be part of the reason why the sound is so bad. (trying to compensate for the echo?) This was very disappointing, but its not bad enough to keep me from doing the workout again.

The med ball section was good. Kimberly's instruction is still great, and she hits just about every muscle group. It seemed shorter than 30 minutes, and at first I didn't feel that I had worked my muscles hard enough. BUT...i did have DOMS in my arms the next day. The sound is better in this portion.

All & all, I liked the workouts and really liked Kimberly as an instructor. Too bad the production isn't better!

Instructor Comments:
I love kimberly's style. She's very "polished" and does a great job cueing. I look forward to doing more of her workouts!
