I was actually searching for a review of another Cathe workout when I saw no one had reviewed this workout. How could that be? This is one of my favorite Cathe workouts.

I would rate this solid intermediate but you could kick up the intensity by adding 1lb weighted gloves or 1lb weights. The workout is 30 minutes from warmup to cooldown. The pace is steady state. Cathe starts with a warmup that actually feels like part of the workout. She then takes you right into kickbox and boxing combos. The choreography is not complicated so you can really work on your heart rate.

Any high impact moves such as jumping jacks are easily modified to low. I don't find the impact especially high and never have a problem modifying. The leg drills definately bring up the cardio without the impact.

During the workout Cathe mentions that there are a lot of sculpting moves and says this a workout that hits it all. I look to this workout as a bonus total body workout. There are plenty of lower body sculpting moves, arm drills and even an upper body ab toning section as part of the cool down.

There is never a dread factor for me and I always choose this one when I want a kickbox workout but I only want 30 minutes of cardio.

Instructor Comments:
Cathe is fun, energetic and motivating, as usual.
