Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix Review

Jillian Michaels Kickbox Fastfix review

As the name already suggests, Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix is based on combat exercises from the Kickboxing sport. Jillian combined these combat elements cleverly with interesting aerobic exercises that will train your endurance and burn your fat . But don’t be scared of the title because the workout is more like a light sparing that is even suitable for beginners.

WHat You Will Do in Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix

The Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix Workout DVD consists of 3 levels, each lasting for 20-25 minutes. I can say that these are one of the shortest workouts created by Jillian Michaels. However, let me tell you that you’ll have a high pulse throughout the entire workout. The sets are mainly focused on heavier cardio exercises to put your body into a metabolic state and burn fat fast. If Kickbox FastFix may be too easy for you, there is always the possibility to change to a more complex aerobic workout like Jillian Michaels Banish Fat Boost Metabolism.

Jillian Michaels Kickbox Fastfix training schedule

In the first level of the Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix course you’ll train the upper body (arms, chest, shoulders). The second level consists of exercises for buttocks and legs and the third level will be training your abs and core muscles. But exercises aiming on strength are rather additionally included to have some variety, the main part of the program is still based on aerobic exercises.

How often should I do Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix?

Jillian Michaels Kickbox Fastfix program

You do it daily or even better would be to alternate it with other Jillian Michaels workouts. For example you could add Kickbox FastFix  as a cardio program to other strength-emphasized workouts from Jillian Michaels. This way you will add variety to your weekly workout schedule and won’t just do cardio but also train your muscles (if you want to). But don’t overdo it because some strength exercises like pushups are already included in Kickbox FastFix and it might be too much for beginners at first.

What Training equipment you need for jillian michaels kickbox fastfix

We recommend using an extra thick exercise yoga mat with high density foam that will protect your spine and knees when doing your workouts.

Dumbbells ranging from 2 lbs. (1kg) are great for this workout. You can take heavier ones if you feel ready to increase intensity. Best deal!

I own nearly every Jillian Michaels DVD. I have to say, this immediately became one of my absolute favorites, and that's saying something! Heart-pumping, adrenaline-pounding kickboxing cardio with strength built in. I couldn't ask for more! I often have to combine one of her strength workouts with a cardio workout to feel like I've nailed both, which is fine when I have the time, but this is EVERYTHING in just 20 minutes! INCREDIBLE! And it's just so much fun!
