Certified instructor description:
Strong, powerful moves in a no-nonsense kickbox workout (never out of control, never just “throwing your arms around”). These exercises seem to have a real purpose: take down your attacker (like a true urban street fight). The combos are basic but varied — from simple jabs and kicks to high blocks and “knee smashes.” Amy cues as she goes — no slowing down to “teach” a move. In the first section, she uses weighted gloves to maximize the intensity. In the second, she uses a punching bag to mimic a real opponent (but her assistant shows no-bag options). It ends with a series of exceptionally deep, dumbbell-assisted stretches. Weighted gloves and dumbbells are optional. ©2008.
