Product Description

Kate Lawler, the winner of Big Brother 3, introduces a keep fit regime based on boxing techniques. Includes a warm-up, a cardio-strengthening and calorie-burning work-out, an abs-and-thighs section, and a cool-down session.

From Amazon.co.uk

In Kate's Cardio Combat, the winner of Big Brother 3 Kate Lawler certainly looks the part; with a tanned and toned body, blonde hair and a natural affinity for cropped tops and trousers. Though obviously intended for women who want Lawler's body, and men who might want a physique to attract women with great bodies, it's unclear as to exactly whom this will really appeal. Lawler might claim this is for men who wouldn't be seen dead in a leotard doing yoga. But will they be seen dead flaunting this title on their shelves?

Trainer and copresenter Rhydian Lewis has created a 50-minute all-round session intended to work heart and lungs, burn body fat, develop strength, and tone the body. The session starts with an energetic warm-up and goes into press-ups ten minutes into the session, moves into lively kicks, then targets abs and thighs, and finally winds up with a cool down. It'll certainly work up a good sweat, but whether it wows or not depends on the extent to which Lawler can occupy the viewer's attention. Despite clearly lapping up the novelty, Lawler is by no means a natural presenter. Trying too hard to impress with lame comments and exaggerated facial expressions, she is too self-absorbed to engage in any playful interaction or flirtation--which is, after all, what she's best known for.

On the DVD: Kate’s Cardio Combat on disc comes with an extra ring workout where Lawler finally loosens up and is more natural and playful. As for the so-called interview, this amounts to Ms Lawler articulating a few sentences on allocated subjects. On Big Brother: "one of the most exciting experiences"; on love: "It scares me"; on boxing: "I really love boxing." Anyone who voted for her will wonder why they bothered. --Lorna V

What can i say i needed to get fit and wanted somthing that would keep me interested and not get me bored aftwer a couple of times. This did the job.
I'm not that fit and struggled with the warm up and the warm up was fast and hard,but didn't last to long, and really got my heart pumping.
Ten followed a cardio strength and calorie burning workout which is fullof punching,kicking and boy was i sweating.Then followed a abs and thigh workout and a cooldown. At the end you feel you have really worked out and can ache a bit the next day.
I have used this video for a month now and i can see and feel a big difference-well worth it.
I'm not to sure if it would be suitable for beginners or not though.Kate i thought would be annoying but she's not(she does not speak much which is probably why)And Rhydian apart from being well fit is areally good instructer.
I totally recomend it.

My sister introduced me to this video and boy am I pleased she did! I workout regularly anyway but this is something different.
Boxing orientated, the punches, kicks, and jabs are a great way to get rid of the days stress. The main cardio section is high impact but its over before you know it, not for beginners but I recommend it to anyone short of time who wants to tone and lose a few pounds in time for that summer bikini! 3 times a week and you'll see (and feel!) the results after 2 weeks. The day after I first tried this I couldn't sit down! Kate is capable but leaves the instruction down to him.
Great cool down with loads of stretches. I'm on a high after doing this video.

I bought this DVD on the back of the reviews on this site and have been really impressed with it. I don't mind Kate Lawler anyway and to be honest she doesn't say much through the whole thing.
With the DVD you can split the workout down into warm up (5 min) Cardio & Combat (18 min) Kicks (5 min) bums & legs (18 min) and cool down (5 min) which means you can pick and choose which parts of the workout you want to do depending on how much time you have to spare.
I have about 25 minutes to spare in the morning so do the warm and cardio every day and do the kicks and bums 4 times a week. I've already noticed a slightly flatter stomach and can really feel it when I finished each day.
It's perfect for beginners although maybe a bit basic for anyone looking for a really tough workout.
Have Fun!!

i don't actually own this video but i tried it at my friends house yesterday. i am feeling a little achy today which hopefully means that it did it's job. the male instructer in the video does know what he's talking about and tells you when you are changing move, he turns sideways so you can see the move in more detail and there is always time before a move starts to quickly practice it, this means that you don't get left behind. he lets you have rests as well!i needed them. kate isn't as good as the man she tries hard to look the part my pulling strained faces but she just looks stupid(good fun laughing at her) i think this is one of the best fitness videos i've ever tried! well worth it. i suggest you do the workout before you eat (builds up an appetite) and in a large space on the ground floor because there are some very energetic moments!

I found this DVD really challenging the first few times I did it. I would really for ache about 3 days afterwards!! Its very good for the thighs/abs and waists. I like the fact that it concentrates a lot on the waist as a lot of DVD's miss that area.

The only grumbles I have is that the warm up is not sufficient which I feel is the reason I ache so much after especially if i do no exercise for a week or so. I do this DVD in conjunction with a Nell McAndrew one and her warm up is much better but Kate''s dvd is more fun and hardwork. Also there is no specific weights section so i usually add hand weights to the 'walking' elements to this dvd.

If people are not finding this challenging then they must just be too fit to begin with but if your new to exercise or have a general level this will help tone you up and lose weight. Kate recommends doing this 3 times a week which would get dull (as all dvd do) but in conjunction with other dvds/gym etc its really good and I have toned up a lot particularly my stomach & waist.

This is my favourite workout!
I've tried other celebrity vidoes only to find myself barely working up a sweat or repeating the same exercide mindlessly but this is hard enough to actually give you a good workout, and varied enough to keep you interested.
(I've been using it for over two years now but just got round to writing a review).
There's a cardio section and then some abs and thighs. It's divided up into sections so you can split it up into shorter
sessions if you don't want to do the whole thing.
I've never had any problems with the warm up or cool down (as mentioned in another comment) and I've done this workout many times.
If you want to burn fat and tone up this is a great buy.

Alrighty then, where do I start??

OK, firstly, let me say that I have read alot of the amazon customer reviews on this vid and despite, at times, finding myself agreeing with some of the "negative" comments, I LOVE this dvd and would recommend it to anyone. Tis true that Rhydian does miscount at times, that Kate does make slightly weak comments, that their moves don't mirror yours if you follow their left/right instructions and that the music is on the slightly annoying side, but I always feel SO much better for doing it and noticed positive changes in my figure almost immediately.

I bought this video shortly after it came out and the first time I did it, I was sure I was going to die!! I couldnt complete the abs and thighs section and was exhausted. The next day I was in complete agony - raising my arms was near impossible - but instead of giving in, I decided to persevere. As soon as the aching stopped, I gave it another go and lets just say that ive never looked back. My fitness has improved no end, my figure is in much better shape and I can complete the whole video, and complete it well!!!!

Warm up - brief, but I liked that. Gets your heart racing and ready for the next section.

Cardio and fat burner - Varied, lots of fun and great for the arms!! This also included some stretching, so you still manage some more "warm up", if you felt the actual warm up was a little brief.

Kicks - a fairly brief section, but challenging (especially the grab-knee-back-right-left-right! Phew!). Nicely teamed with some punches so more work for the arms.

Abs and thighs - toughy, but the results are superb. Really concentrated and gives a great workout!
