Coach Nicole has created a fun and effective kickboxing workout that will elevate your heart rate to burn calories and fat. This video will lead you through a short warm up, cardio workout, cool down and stretching routine in about 10 minutes, making it easy to fit into your day. Free of complex choreography, this workout is appropriate for people of many different fitness levels and abilities.
  • Length: 10 minutes
  • Equipment: None
  • Type of Workout: Cardio (aerobic) & flexibility
  • Fitness Level: Beginner to Advanced
  • Impact: Medium-impact
  • Safety Precautions: Wear proper footwear. Exercise at your own intensity level, using tips provided to lower your intensity if necessary. Only complete as much of the video as you can, taking a break to recover (by marching) when necessary. Never stop abruptly--if you get tired, try to stay moving, even if you're just walking in place. As you progress, try to finish the entire video or to repeat the video several times.
  • Extra Tip: Keep your movements big, but controlled! The deeper you squat, higher you kick, and quicker you move, the harder you'll be working.

  • I am really committed to losing weight, as I've gotten really out of shape! This workout is perfect, and I'm so happy that I did it, and not only that, but I enjoyed doing it! - 2/15/2015 4:13:42 PM
  • I am glad I discovered this video. For a beginner this workout is short but intense and I really felt good after doing it. The only suggestion I would give is that the workout instructor, Nicole, goes too fast for each workout move. I know that continually throughout the video she suggests leaving out moves or going at a slower pace to suit one's needs and comfort zone but when you are just learning the moves and becoming familiar with the workout this can kind of be hard. So just slowing down initially and then speeding it up would be a good idea. Thanks:) - 2/4/2015 11:57:02 AM
  • This is a fun workout but due to mobility issues I do part of it sitting down. - 1/29/2015 12:49:11 PM

  • After what feels like months of inconsistent workouts, I've decided to re-start at a "doable" and these 10 minute workouts is a great way to start Day 1. I LOVE cardio kickboxing so this was just up my alley. Let's do this! - 11/24/2014 7:26:24 AM

  • I am so uncoordinated. Had a tough time keeping up and doing what she was doing. But I kept moving so that's the main thing. 😄 - 11/12/2014 9:35:21 PM
