Best kickboxing workout dvd for beginners
I know what you are thinking… Wow, wow… wow… Haven’t you done a kickboxing dvd review yet?
Sure, I did… The thing was, that I focussed both on entertainment as workout based dvd’s.
This particular post however will be focussed on dvd’s that could actually help out people who are beginning with kickboxing.
I will focus on dvd’s that teach you some workout routines. We will not cover entertainment based video’s, but that said… if you really like kickboxing, then you’ll see it as kickboxing as well too.
I will try and cover as much variety as possible, with this I mean cardio or musscle building. I think it is quite important.
I might not cover as much technique based dvd’s because if it doesn’t benefit you workout wise, I don’t consider it usefull for this article, and my goal… my very end goal, is to teach you a thing or two about your work out routine.
See, your workout is really important when it comes to kickboxing, as the right workout routine focusses on getting better too.
On improving your current technique, positioning and ofcourse stamina and power.
Every kind of workout is quite important when it comes to kickboxing as we gotta be flexible, quick… strong and we gotta have stamina.
1. Kickboxing DVD Workout – Muay Thai Boxing MMA fitness videos – EFLT-ONLINE review.
This workout dvd, I have to admit, wasn’t the first on my list. I am not a big fan of these kind of video’s, and frankly… I like to do stuff more than I actually like to watch it.
It is very motivational and explanatory, and focusses on a workout that also focusses on your technique.
I was hesitating to watch this one, as I said before but that said… I really enjoyed the actual video itself.
It was great, and actually even fun to watch.
The fun thing is that I can pause it whenever I want haha, I love to try things out and watching things over again in order to perfect it.
This particular dvd actually gave me more than that. It was that in depth, that motivational and yes that important to watch.
I’ve never had a dvd or well, an instructial dvd drop my jaw. This one did.
- Price: $18,98
- Workout based.
- Fitness based.
- Technique based.
What I liked:
I really loved how the dvd was explanatory, and motivating me at the same time. You see, I am quite a motivated person myself, and I don’t get as motivated from these motivational video’s, as others actually do.
No, I think most of them are fantastic, but it is not me doing it… So, I don’t feel as if it should motivate me.
The only thing motivating me, should be me. I should keep myself going. I am quite strict that way.
This video though, kept me entertained… made me actually WANT TO EXCERCISE. That is why I actually liked this video.
And ofcourse I learned quit a bit from it.
What I disliked:
Some of the excercises aren’t as easy as they could be. It was explanatory, but he made it a bit well… too “professional” in a way.
Sure, it is a great video, but it is quite expensive for it’s money also.
That said, It was quite a good kickboxing workout dvd for beginners, but of course, it costs a bit of money.
Also, the video it isn’t very basic. Some of the things he says, well… might be a bit complex for a complete beginner or somebody too young, who doesn’t know a lot about kickboxing or fitness in general
2. Cathe Friedrich’s XTrain Series: Hard Strikes DVD review.
Cathe Friedrich is an awesome instructor, and I was actually quite happy to do a review on her, not because I myself own plenty of dvd’s of her… No, my girlfriend does and we often work out together.
So, Yes. I do know who Cathe is, and I actually like her video’s a lot.
She is very instructional, and her video’s are very intensive also. So, while I wouldn’t really recommend this particular dvd for everyone, I’d still recommend it for most beginners out there!
- Price: $21,95
- Musscle building
- Kickboxing technique based.
What I liked:
Cathe gives her video’s quite a zumba vibe for being extremely kickboxing, cardio oriented video’s.
This is good because zumba is very intensive, and this is also quite good when it comes to footwork and technique.
Yea, I love zumba, haha!
What I disliked:
Oh, I hate the price. Have you ever seen Avengers: Endgame? Well, in my country it costs less than this actual video, it is funny.
That said, sure: You get quite a lot of value from this video. It helps you with excercising, and it is quite fun to watch but…
…Still, especially when you are a beginner… It might be quite a commitment moneywise.
A commitment you might not be willing to make money wise ofcourse. Which is completely understandable.
For every beginner who has money, I recommend looking at the Cathe’s DVD. I really think workout wise it might be beneficial to you.
If you are more looking for a more technique intensive, yet cardio and motivational wise DVD. The Elfit one might just be what you are looking for.
But this is of course, just my opinion based on what I think would be viable for you. I really do think Cathe will be a favourite amongst woman more than it is amongst man, due to the womanly vibe you get from the video.
And of course: Some kickboxers simply don’t like zumba.
For beginners looking for technique, I would definintly go for the first dvd. It is very instructional, and very technique based.
Cathe’s DVD however is not just instructional but also quite fun. It is really entertaining at the same time, and quite fun to watch.
Ofcourse, she knows what she is talking about but still she is a bit expensive though.
