Review: Review: Rapid Fire: Kick, Box & Core Burn
Susan Chung, 2010 ***** (5 of 5 stars)


This is an 83 minute cardio kickboxing workout that has a real cardio kickboxing gym class feel to it.  Its chaptered extremely well so you can choose the length of your workout and includes PLENTY of premixes ranging from 25- 45 minutes. Susan works out in an authentic looking kickboxing gym w/ 3 background exercisers- 1 showing lower impact modifications. Optional equipment includes medicine/ weighted ball, heavy bag, boxing or weighted gloves.


Main sections include: Warmup (8 min), Shadow Boxing (18 min), Aerobic Kickboxing (21 min),  Heavy Bag (13 min), Standing Core/Abs Ball Work (8 min), Floor Core/Abs Ball Work (8 min), and Stretch (6 min). Moves include: punch & kick combos, shuffling, jacks, etc. and lots of great standing and floor core work.


LOVED every section in this workout! I really enjoy boxing and kickboxing but am not into overly choreographed routines- this fits the bill perfectly! This workout is very unique to any other dvd I've tried (thats saying a lot), it reminds me of an authentic cardio kickboxing gym workout. So much variety to keep you interested and the time really flew by. I love that its chaptered so well and has so many premixes- making it super versatile.



I dont have a heavy bag but didnt feel that I was missing anything in the bag work by not having one. If you have a bag- I would say this w/o is a must have! Great core work, great cardio, great toning/slimming work! In the shadow boxing section Susan and crew hold 1 lb weights- WOW great upper body workout! I will def feel it in my lats & shoulders tomorrow. The core sections they use a 6 lb core ball and that really made the work tough, fun, and unique (lots of new moves here!).



I would rate this a high intermediate workout that really got my heartrate up- easy to modify up or down and appropriate for most levels. I was drenched in sweat by the end.  I really like Susan as a lead- loved her energy and demeanor are fantastic and her cuing was spot on! Highly recommend this workout and can't wait for more from Susan. I received a copy of this workout to review.
