Certified instructor description:
A blend of two cardio styles: athletic kickboxing and traditional step. It's a natural, powerful fusion — Kelly Coffey-Meyer simply integrates the step into classic kickbox combos (e.g. squats combined with “bob and weaves”, punches combined with “over the tops”). It's a fast-paced fat-burner. Kelly just “cues as she goes” — never slowing down to demo a sequence (but you can learn them ahead of time in the 11-minute tutorial). There is a lot of variety with dozens of different moves in both sideways and toward-the-TV step positions (plus each combo finishes with a 60-second burst). The workout ends with floor kickboxing and oblique-focused abwork (on one knee, kneeling on a mat). Club-style music. ©2007.
