Workouts in Review- MMA: Fusion
Well, I'm still working through my 10 new STS Shock Cardio DVD's that I purchased from Cathe. I am totally LOVING them all! I have just one left to try so I'm making headway. This series has 11 new workouts 3 of which are MMA DVD's. MMA: Kickbox, MMA: Boxing and MMA: Fusion which I'll be reviewing today. As you all may know by now I absolutely LOVE kickboxing (as posted HERE) or any type of martial arts workout. Cathe did not disappoint me with these latest workouts. I know I will be reaching for them often!
What is it?
MMA: Fusion is a 50-minute high energy, fun workout. I kind of felt cool doing it. You know, like I could defend myself if I had to. Now that's not saying this is any sort of self defense training workout but it did make me feel strong. She has some martial arts moves mixed in with plenty of core work plus there are several sports based, cardio drills.
Who is this workout for?
I would say MMA: Fusion is an intermediate/advanced workout. There are some high-imapct moves but they could be modified if needed. I would highly recommend this workout for anyone who loves martial arts style workouts.
What to expect?
The moves were fairly easy to master but this may be because I have done so many kickboxing workouts in the past. I didn't find myself getting lost or frustrated, I was just having a lot of fun and sweating while I was at it. The cardio in this is not as challenging as some of Cathe's other kickboxing DVD's but that was okay with me because I managed to burn almost 400 calories doing it, yippee! My abs were sore the next day because of all the core work in this workout, which was a great plus!
