Full Backcover Description
Body Box is a total body workout consisting four advanced kickboxing combinations with a self defense feel. Each combination is followed by an interval of either a body weight exercise or one that includes a set of hand weights. This is an advanced level workout and it is advised that you already have some kickboxing familiarity before attempting this workout. To take the workout to a higher level you can increase the intensity by adding weighted gloves. You will see them used in this workout by Amy and her team. We strongly suggest you do this work out once without gloves first then attempt bumping up the challenge. Have fun and enjoy the heart pumping music in this workout. It will give you the adrenaline rush you’ve been looking for.
Body Box includes four premixes to mix up the workout so it feels fresh every time you do it.

Certified instructor description:
Alternating intervals of creative cardio and fluid toning. It's an empowering blend that burns fat as it builds strength. Amy's kickbox choreography goes way beyond the basics. It's not just a kick; it's a fan kick with a half-turn. It's not just a punch, it's a moving punch with an elbow jab. The multi-muscle toning segments are equally varied. They include both standing and floor moves, always with a definite "flow" (e.g. jumping with overhead weights into a squat or rolling from a seated position into a standing lunge). Throughout, Amy's energy and cuing encourage maximum effort ("come on, kick harder, throw harder!"). DVD has a 20-minute step-by-step tutorial. Requires 5 to 10 lb. dumbbells. ©2013.
