MMA Boxing is a 49 minute cardio boxing program with a touch of MMA thrown in to give your workout a new twist. While any fighter would definitely be challenged from this intense and thorough program, this workout focuses on getting the fitness enthusiast in the best shape possible "outside of the ring". In this workout you'll do a warm up followed by a series of boxing combinations. After each combination you'll do sports specific boxing drills to increase your stamina and improve your speed and coordination. MMA Boxing concludes with core conditioning drills and a stretch. A bonus heavy Bag workout (20 mins) is also featured in this program for those of you who have this piece of equipment. Boxing is by far one of the most intense total body conditioning workouts out there. It is guaranteed to get your heart pumping, your muscles moving and those calories burning!

almost exactly what I was looking for

I recently bought a whole bunch of exercise DVDs and this is the first one I tried. This is my first DVD from Cathe Friedrich and I will now definitely be trying more of her offerings. Please note that I will not be saying much about the optional heavy bag section because I do not have this equipment and am thus unable to complete that segment.
Great job on these DVDs
At age 54, this and the other MMA DVDs are ones I can follow. The rest are too intense. Great job Cathe!
Easy to follow…

I am now hooked on Cathe’s videos! Started with this one as my first, as I wanted particularly the segment for the heavy bag. I found her workout to be challenging in that it keeps the heart-rate up without too many stopping points. I love to keep momentum and she and her team keep it going. 🙂 Also, not too many extra pieces of equipment required.
I loved this workout
I loved this workout. I do P90X also, so it has been hard to find something that keeps my heart rate going. The jump sequence is a bit difficult but I feel great afterwards
Wow, what a workout!
It definitely takes a few times doing this DVD to pick up the whole routine. She has a quick pace – which is good for the cardio aspect. I just have two left feet, so to say, and took me longer to pick it up. Cathe is very energetic and I enjoy working out with her.
Looks good for bag workout
I am an advanced exerciser and kickboxer (dojo kickbox/tabata classes) but this is my first Cathe video. I recently bought a heavy bag and was looking for a DVD I could do with the bag. I reviewed this DVD today while waiting for my bag to arrive and can say this much about it: the 18 minute bag section looks like pretty basic moves, not near as many complicated combos as I am used to from class and not the kind of driving punches on the bag that we were expected to do in class. Of course, if you are using a bag you can punch as hard as you want and make it a tougher workout. I was a little surprised since most reviews of Cathe’s workouts describe her classes as tough and better suited to advanced exercisers. Aside from the bag section the non-bag kickboxing sections are done in a manner that could easily be done with a bag, so for those who have a bag and want to get more bang for your DVD buck you can probably get more than an 18 minute bag workout out of your investment. The non bag sections contain a kickboxing component followed by a “training” segment, which are designed to improve form and stance. These training segments are where almost all of the lower body work comes in and involves a lot of jumping; fortunately they are formatted as separate chapters so you could skip over those if you don’t want to include them or don’t want to do all that jumping. There is an ab section and a stretch at the end. The ab section looks fairly challenging and there is an interesting variation on doing sit ups. Overall, this looks like a decent workout, especially if you use a bag where it is easier to intensify. I am thrilled the kickboxing segments all lend themselves to being used with or without a bag.
Cathe does it again! Great workout!
Great for beginner, definitely going to buy some of her other DVD’s
Love the work I get from this video.
I need more!!!!
Loved this workout. The punching combos are a blast, and the cardio conditioning drills challenging and unexpected. Even though I was able to complete the workout the 1st time around, my upper body was feeling it the day after.
