Back from Vacation and getting my Music

Back from vacation, Kelsea hit a home run, a triple, and some singles. I'm so proud of her. She has really developed into a great softball player. It was great to get away from everyday life and work. But I really had a hard time this week trying to get back into work and training. But I did ordered my music for the new dvd.... I pray and hope I like it in its entirety. Have five, good , simple, and effective combos. I'm hoping the music will help me with some more combos. Another busy weekend at the softball field, but it is on starting on Monday!!!!

Have a great weekend,

Katina Hunter

Will check in next week.

Almost done with choreography!!!

I'm still working on my choreography for Kick Party and believe it or not ..... I'm almost done. Right now I have 5 combos and power parties. I just need to come up with 1-2 more and I'll be done with the meat of the workout. I can't believe how all of the this comes to me. It's got to be GOD.

Working on my own!

o.k, I popped in another kickboxing dvd and got pass the warm up and something told me to start working on my own workout. So I put in some kickboxing music and I came alive. When I get started, I never really know what to do or where to start. So I just let the music and my mind take me. I had a great hour workout. I have 2 combos and 4-5 power parties to incorporate in Kick Party. I will continue to work on Kick Party throughout this week. I also want to do a couple more kickbox workouts and I will post my thoughts and learning.

Kimberly Spreen: Absolute Kickboxing Workout

Had a stomach bug the last 48 hours. I am just now feeling up to par to exercise, so I decided to do Kimberly Spreen- Absolute Kickboxing Workout. I did not do the combat interval segments with the weighted bar, I only did the kickboxing segments.

Katina's 7 F's:


Warm Up

Combo 1 & 2: The first combos are kickboxing and the second is kickboxing but with a focus on the lower body

Combo 3 & 4: Follows the same format as combos 1 & 2

Combo 5 & 6: Combo 5 consists on kickboxing and combo 6 is kickboxing with a focus on the core.

Cool- Down: Focus on Balance


Cardio with strength moves for lower body and core.


All moves flowed well together


Kimberly once again is fierce and I love the music on this dvd.

Fat- Burning:

45 minutes I burned 280 calories.

Frugal Find:

8.99 @

From: There are lots of ways to construct a kickboxing workout. How will I format my workout? The sky is the limit.

Out of town this weekend. Will be back on Sunday and will try to do another kickbox workout. See ya Sunday,

Oldie But Goodie

Kathy Smith Kickboxing Workout filmed in 1999.
This was workout from yesterday. This was my first time doing this workout and I enjoyed it. I was surprised to see Keli Roberts featured in the video. She had short red hair. Anyhoo, here is my 7 F's breakdown.
Warm up
Several combos that incorporate punches and kicks.
Standing lowerbody kick segment (with a chair for balance)
Cool-Down/ Core segment
This workout worked the entire upper and lowerbody with a standing lower body sculpting and core workout.
All of the moves flowed well together throughout the whole workout
Kathy had pretty good energy and music was o.k.
Fat-burning: 250 calories in 45 minutes
Frugal Find: Hard to find this dvd in print. It must have almost sold out. But I did find it @ for 7.93.
From: What I learned from this workout was to definitely include breakdown moves and variations to the combos when teaching it. They did this very effectively throughout the workout. But I also need to make sure not to compromise the intensity while doing so.
On to do my second workout for the week,

Kimberly Spreen Kickbox Bootcamp

Today's workout was Kimberly Spreen's Kickbox Bootcamp. I have not done this workout in quite a while. And I was surprised to see that I needed my step. This workout format was a little different and here is the breakdown of my 7 F's:
Combo 1-- Simple step moves that vary in intensity (she calls them power ups)
Kickboxing Combo on the floor
Back to the Power Ups and Kickboxing combo
Strength segment (with the weights or body bar)
Combo 2-- Follows the same format as combo 1 but with different moves
Combo 3-- Focuses on strength that works your back and chest
Core Workout
Yoga inspired Stretch
Functionality: Cardio/Strength/and Flexibility throughout this workout. This was a total body workout.
Flow: All of the moves flowed well together.
Fun: Kimberly is a great motivator and I think she is made to be a kickboxing instructor. She just looks right when she does all of the moves. The music was o.k. I really enjoyed one of the songs on the video.
Fat Burning: 310 calories in 53 minutes.
Frugal Find: The cheapest I could find this video was at for 11.34.
From: While doing this video, I thought and prayed that I look like a fierce kickboxing instructor like Kimberly while filming Kick Party.
Will check in next week with some more kickboxing vids. I'm running and going to a softball tournament this weekend.
Have a great weekend,
Katina Hunter

The King of Kickboxing...............

My kickboxing workout for today featured the King of Kickboxing Mr. Billy Blanks in the Ultimate Bootcamp.

Katina's 7 F's:

Starts with a warm-up and then I believe that Billy has lots of moves/combos and just does them on the fly. So it was hard for me to determine his format. This workout ends with a sort of tai chi cool-down.

I would have to say about 1/2 cardiovascular and 1/2 strength with the Billy Bands. This workout was definitely a full body workout.

Moves flowed very well. But I didn't get the roll on the floor between push-ups??

I love Billy Blanks energy and motivation throughout the workout. The music was good.

340 calories in 53 minutes.

Frugal Find: 3.50 @

From: What I got from this workout to come up with a different type of cool-down for this kickboxing workout. I'm not sure what, but I am going to focus on putting together a different kind of cool down for Kick Party.

Stay Tune for my next workout,

Katina Hunter

Monday's Kickboxing Workouts


Short on time today due to work/home schedule. I needed a quick fix for today's workout so here is what I came up with Turbo Jam 20 minute workout and my 15 minute Kick Party workout from Fit Party. Burned 235 calories in 35 minutes--- pretty good combination. I will only review Turbo Jam because I think I might be a little bias on Fit Party.

Katina's 7 F's:



3 Combos (cardio with basic kickboxing moves and dance moves)

1 Turbo (interval)

Cool Down Stretch


Moves flowed well-- one tricky move at the end. But I got it here and there.


Mainly cardiovascular with a lot of upper body kickboxing moves and some lower body moves.


Chalene is very high energy and kept me motivated throughout the workout. Music was o.k.

Fat Burning:

Burned 125 calories in 20 minutes.

Frugal Find:
16.24 @ for 5 dvd set


After doing this workout, I may consider adding premixes on Kick Party DVD to include a 20-25 minute workout if you run short on time like I did today.

Going night- night.

Jeanette Jenkins Hollywood Trainer-- Kickboxing Bootcamp

My kickbox workout from yesterday: The Hollywood Trainer Kickboxing Bootcamp with Jeanette Jenkins. Katina's 7 F's
Warm Up
Kickboxing combos with compound sculpting moves intersperse throughout the workout.
Cool-Down with short ab workout
Cardio workout with total body sculpting
All combos and moves flowed very well throughout this workout.
Jeanette had high energy throughout and music was good with a good tempo and loud enough for me to really get into the workout.
280 calories in 45 minutes
Frugal Find: I believe that Jeanette is the only supplier for this workout. She sells it at her website for 12.95.
My thoughts after this workout was I have to find really good music to make this workout great. I need the right tempo and beat throughout the workout. Wish me good luck,

Day 3- Jeanette Jenkins Super Charged Kickbox Party

Jeanette Jenkins Super Charged Kickbox Party
Combos 1-5
Cool Down
Each combo consist of 1/2 kickbox moves and 1/2 dance moves.
Mainly a cardio routine with a few variations of squats for lower body sculpting. Includes basic kickbox moves along with dances moves.
Considering that there is a mix of dance moves and kickbox moves most of the combos flowed. However, there was one combo that I felt very uncoordinated.
Jeanette had great energy throughout this workout. There were times that I laughed at some of the things that she said while doing the workout. She did not hold anything back at all and I like that. Music was pretty good but not loud enough.
Fat Burning
200 calories in 42 minutes
Frugal Find
$7.61 with free shipping @
What I learned from this workout is not to hold back because you are on camera. Be yourself and have fun!!!
Got to get ready for work,

Day 2- Another 10 minute solution video

Jessica Smith Knockout Body! This was my kickbox workout for today. It almost didn't happen. My bed was calling me along with Kamden's leftover birthday cake. Well I gave in to the birthday cake, but not the bed. After eating one slice, I decided that I would have to a least burn it off. Here is Katina's 7 F's:

5 Ten Minute Segments

1. Knockout Body Blast
2. Fat Attack
3. Fierce & Fabulous Abs
4. Ultimate Upper Body
5. Kickbox Cross Train

Functionality--Basic kickbox moves incorporated throughout the workout. Sculpting moves to include upper and lower body and the abdominals creating a total body workout.

Flow-- One or two of the combos made me feel a little uncoordinated but for the most part flowed well.

Fun-- Instructor Jessica Smith is somewhat serious and seems all about getting the job done. Music was o.k.

Fat Burning-- Clock in 300 calories in 53 minutes (wonder was that enough to cancel out the cake?)

Frugal Find-- Cheapest I could find was @ for 18.32. I guess this dvd costs more because of the weighted gloves that comes along with the dvd.

From: What I got from this workout was to definitely include some kickbox inspired plyometric moves to keep the heartrate pumping.

I glad I done it and now off to the shower and answering the call to my bed.....

Goodnight friends,

Katina Hunter

The Beginning

Keli Robert's 10 Minute Solution Kickbox Bootcamp
Today was the beginning of my training/research for my upcoming Kick Party DVD and my quest to run a half marathon in October. So since Keli was the one to start me on my journey in exercise dvds, I decided I would start with her 10 minute solution kickbox bootcamp dvd for my a.m. workout.

Katina's 7 F's:

Format (program design)
5-10 minute segments
1. Basic training
2. Ultimate Buns & Thighs
3. Arm & Shoulders Sculptor
4. Fat Burning Blast
5. Washboard Abs

Functionality (does the segments work as a whole?)
Includes all basic kickbox moves, includes sculpting moves for lower/upper body/and abs giving the user a full body workout.

Flow (how well the moves flow)
All of the moves flow well together. Didn't feel uncoordinated at any point of the workout.

Fun (overall vibe of the workout)
Keli very motivating throughout the workout. Music o.k.

Fat-burning (calories burn)
250 calories in 54 minutes

Frugal Find: You can purchase this dvd @ for $5.49.

What I got From the workout to help in my quest to deliver an awesome kickbox dvd:
1. Try to include special emphasis throughout the workout to work all body parts.
2. Try to maintain a moderate to high level of intensity throughout the workout.
3. Like the concept of double time moves (I felt very empowered during this part of the workout-- I could take on the world.)

P.M. Workout- Walk/Ran on the treadmill and watched Jillian's new show. (250cal.)

Happy 9th Birthday to my son Kamden!!! So glad I didn't eat any of his cake.

Good night,

Katina Hunter

Dear Katina, Vertical Step Party 2 Reviews

Review #1 VSP 2

Dear Katina,

I want to say I am really enjoying VSP 2. I love the longer length and I like that the choreography is simple enough for me to not have to preview it everytime I do it, if I haven't done it for a while, yet interesting enough for me to want to do it. Also, I get to face the t.v. The music is great, too, & it is loud enough for me-- as usual with your dvds! I have a lot of exercise dvds that play on my dvd player with low music, that I can hardly hear. Also, I thought Riley did an excellent job doing the workout. I am so glad you included her. I know it's kind of soon after you finished this workout, but I wanted to request a full length kickboxing workout from you. I really like the Fit Party Kick Party workout, & I think a full length version would be great-- maybe you could include some power parties & perhaps an abs section at the end. Of course, I would love more hi/lo & strength training too. In any case, keep those workouts coming, and thanks for all your efforts!


Response #1

Dear Jennifer,

You have your wish, Jennifer. I will be filming "Kick Party"-- a full length version in August 2010. I am working on the format now. All I know it that it will be an interval type of kickboxing workout. Currently, I am doing every kickboxing workout known to man right now to see what is missing in the industry. As a fitness instructor, I plan to review these kickboxing workouts on my blog this summer and plan my workout based upon my experencies. My goal with every workout is Simple Sweaty Fun. Thanks , Jennifer!

Review #2 VSP 2

Dear Katina,

Nice solid steady state step workout. Honest 60 minutes of workout time. Had a few tricky moves that I nailed it second time around. Nicely constructed. Had a wee smile at the 'wee lassie' (girl). Brave move including her good on you for rewarding her for her commitment.


Response #2

Dear Sylvia,

Riley was awesome! I had to include her in the workout. I hope that she will take this experience with her and help others lead a healthy lifestyle.

Review #3 VSP 2

Dear Katina,

Just got this today and had to do at least a part of it. I was short on time so I only did the warm up, first 3 combos and the cool down. What a blast! I had a crappy day at work and your infectious good attitude had me smiling within minutes. Thanks so much for a great workout. I can't wait to try the rest.


Response #3

Dear Joanne,

Thanks so much for the complement. You never really realize the impact that you can have on a person. This is truly what my this is about. You have made my day!


Review #4 VSP2

Dear Katina,

I just had to send you this comment about your new dvd Vertical Step Party 2... I LOVE IT!!! Best one yet of all your dvds... I just love that you have different body styles and ages on your dvd!! Easy to follow but yet challenging!!!!! Great Job Katina!!!!


Response #4

Dear Veronica,

Thanks so much! I believe in variety and I want to relate to everyone. Again, my motto is Simple Sweaty Fun!!

I'm BACK!!!

I'm back. Took some well deserve time off! Super busy with the kids, work, school, baseball/softball, and the list goes on and on. I have finally decided that my life has been overbooked and some of the above activities would have to be deleted. I love exercise, fitness, and stepparty (my baby), so I could not delete that but I could take some time away from it. So what could I delete????? 1. School -- taking a class in health technology and 2. work--working one less day a week. So life is less complicated and more time to work on my baby.

Current Plans for Step Party:

1. This week I plan to post some of the reviews I received on Vertical Step Party 2. .

2. Will have a new Website by the end of the summer.

3. Change some things on my Blog.

4. Will research, train, and plan for next workout.

5. Brainstorming on something a little different for Step Party. ( I don't have a clue of what this my be but we will see what pops up in my crazy mind........

So I'm back!!!!

My Little Surprise Revealed

Me and Cassandra (modifier)
Me, Cassandra, and Lisa in the back

Sondra and Riley (My little surprise)

Found my camera in the middle console of our truck. So here are some personal pics from Vertical Step Party 2. And in those pics you will see my little surprise--- Riley Lytle. She is one of our newest member of the "Step Party" girls. Riley is Lisa's daughter. Lisa has been in all of my videos except Fit Party (I am solo in Fit Party). Riley was coming to all of our practices with Lisa and doing the workout. She was awesome in picking up the choreography. So Lisa told me at one practice that Riley said she did not want to go to her school's carnival because she did not want to miss practice. So I had to put her in the video. Riley is 11 years old and in the 5th grade.

Step Party also welcome Cassandra Andrews, my long time friend, as one of the new "Step Party" girls. Cassandra will be the modifier in the video.

Lisa and Sondra returned to party with me some more. I had such a great crew and they worked so hard. Shots out to the "Step Party" girls.

VSP 2 Vid coming soon--still in editing phase.

Steppers Get Ready...............

Vertical Step Party 2 is coming soon! Just looked at the footage from our filming last month and it's looking good! We filmed right before X-mas and I didn't want to start working on it until the New Year. So I'm working on it now with a million other things. It has been so crazy since 2010 has started. I want to post some pics of me and the crew, but I can not find my camera. That is how crazy it has been. VSP 2 is around 50-55 minutes long. It has 6 combos with 6 power parties and we end it with all of the combos put together in the VSP2 Power Party. The combos are intermediate/advance and rocking. The music is rocking too. I decided not to put the abs at the end of the video because not really feeling the routine, so I strapped it. But don't worry the stepping will take you to Step Heaven. Off the find the camera, pics coming soon.............
