I look forward to this class every week! All levels of students are able to participate because modified techniques are demonstrated. The best part is, there is always the opportunity to challenge yourself to become better! The class is never boring or predictable which makes it so exciting each week. Lastly, the music is fantastic!!! Z-BOX!!!!!!! Yaaay!! It makes the body better!"- Rita Love

"I gave myself the best birthday present, when I joined a' Z-Box class. I have always wanted a FUN fitness class where I could dance, weight-train and box and I found it all in Z-Box!!! I have never felt stronger and more energetic since I had my two beautiful girls. It also helps... me greatly in my yoga practice and martial arts training." - Dayan

"Z-box is going soooo great, I love it! I have definitely created some fanatics...they love it so much and are always ready for more...so I have a lot of boxing and dance routines I'd love to share on the blog. It's on my list! Our strength and mat is also such a strong point- the class can't get enough. It's been awesome seeing students graduate from 3lbs to 5lbs to 8lbs...so many have. :-) What a great add to my schedule....just a note to say THANK YOU!!!" - Rebecca Newcombe

"We run a Z-Box class at my fitness studio every week and I just wanted to let you know that everyone LOVES the class! It is consistently full and the emails I receive about it are wonderful! I think you have a great format going . . . so thanks for sharing it! Have a great day :)" - Michele Meckl

"Just wanted to let you know that I was in a really bad mood after I left work and the last thing I wanted to do was exercise. However, as always, I had a blast, felt great when I left and just seeing the energy and motivation in the class made me forget about my stupid job." - Kim

"I've attended many workshops and other events and found the Z-Box Workshop to be extremely educating, invigorating and held everyones attention. The content of the workshop was thorough, easy to comprehend and structured to grow on previous elements which proven the professionalism of this awesome duo (Donna and Debbie). I highly recommend this workshop if you are looking for an incredible regimen to offer your clients." - Patricia Pelto

"I LOVE Z-Boxing! Seriously, I have never enjoyed working out but this is an awesome workout that doesn't feel like a work out...because it's fun, great music, variety of moves...I can't believe the hour goes by sooo fast. I feel great mentally and physcially after my classes ended and eargely looked forward to the next ones. I had lost weight and inches and felt so much better about myself." - Donna

"I just wanted to thank you for the ZBox training.  I learned so much about being an instructor.  You (Debbie) and your sister (Donna) should do seminars.  The information you gave could help all instructors no matter what they teach.  Thanks again!! and God Bless!"
- Kristen, Instructor

"Thank you for a great class! I am so excited to see results so quickly! I never knew exercising would be so much fun!" - Diane

"Z-Box is the BEST class that I ever took!" - Kim

"Suggestion to other members: I am telling my husband that for Christmas I want to sign up for another Z-Box class or two - It is a lot better than getting something I don't really need, but my mental & physical health is priceless as a gift." - Kelly

"I have been really enjoying this [Z-Box] class especially since it combines boxing moves for the upper body and also weights near the end of the workout. It is a nice personal challenge moving into this type of class. Thanks for all of your training tips. See you soon." - Lana :)

"I cannot believe how great Z-Box is! Z-Box gives me the complete workout that I have been looking for! The energy of the instructors is unbelievable! I love the dance mixed with boxing - it is like mixing two worlds in one. You have to try it and once you do, you will be hooked! This class is much better than the other dance exercises! Thanks for creating Z-Box!" - Patty

"I was hooked the first class I took! I have been in several fitness classes and think Z-Box is really unique. Who would have ever thought that boxing and dancing would go together!" - Beverly

"Thank you for such a great workout! I am a regular runner and monitor the calories that I burn during each workout. It surprised me with I burned an average of 550 calories in Z-Box!" - Jenni

"I'm 46 years old and have always battled my weight and despised working out. I've been to many gym's through out the years, but there was a certain element of enthusiasm and motivation that was lacking from the various instructors. That all changed when I attended my first class of Z-Box! These ladies are high spirited, positive, full of energy and very enthusiastic and passionate about motivating others to have fun while getting fit. First of all, I have to say that I liked the fact that it wasn't taped in a gym or studio because it gave it a fresh new feel than the same old thing done over 100 times. Great song selections too. I have been to many classes of Debbie and Donna's and I enjoy their style, alternating movements, combined with dance and arm weights, just like in their DVD (which is so cool in HD) on my big TV screen! It makes me feel as though I was right back in class with them! (I am my Mom's caregiver now, so I had to leave the classes, but with this DVD I am back in action and feeling great!) I recommend this DVD to everyone. Awesome job! I want to also let everyone who reads this know that by doing Z-Boxing I lost 35lbs and have more endurance, clothes fit way better and everything about me is better. Thank you for your positive motivational influence, your unique workout and to all who participated in this DVD, you have changed my health, my life and my outlook, all for the better! Highly Recommended DVD!" - Donna Marie

"I LOVE the video and can't wait for your next one to come out. You made me sweat and I felt like I was in your class again. You and your sister and whole crew are so happy and energetic. The video is the next best thing to actually being in your class. I'm SO glad you made it as there aren't any boxing classes up here in my area. I can't wait for you to make another video and I would love to see one that's all kick boxing which is the part I love the most. Thanks for helping me and many others to become more fit and have fun doing it!" - Gale

"Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this workout. I was intrigued by it. It seemed to be a fresh take on combining different types of workouts, mainly kickboxing and dance. The kickboxing is not what I would consider either traditional or hardcore kickboxing. They do punches and kicks and repeater knees in a flowing routine that sets the patterns and then repeats the moves in that segment. Some of the dance segments are dance and at least one is what I would consider dancey hi/lo with moves like grapevines. After these four sets, there is a strength workout that I would describe as a flowing low-weight workout. It's rather short and not very intense, so it wouldn't be good for a lot of people for a stand-alone workout. Then, there is a bonus stretch segment. You can pick kickboxing only, dance only, or strength only from the main menu. INSTRUCTORS I kept thinking that the instructors looked A LOT alike. It turns out that two of the three main instructors that lead the segments are twins, Debbie and Donna Lim. It's nice to know that I'm not going nuts! One of the instructors is extremely and effusively enthusiastic. The music had no vocals, but I thought it was pretty good. I noticed that it matched the moves well in several places. I was surprised by how much fun I had in certain places. The kickboxing segments I especially enjoyed as they were flowing and sometimes mixed in tai chi type moves at the beginning or end. I hope this group does more DVDs. It's always good to have new faces and takes on fitness that gives us all more options." - Laura

"This workout is fun and kicks butt! I love kickboxing - they provide a really good workout with awesome moves - time really flies. I'm not usually into dancy videos, but their cuing is so good even I picked up right away and was able to get a great workout. I worked up a nice sweat by the end of this workout. If you like kickboxing I highly recommend, and you will get the bonus of the dance workout. The strength at the end is the icing on the cake. This feels like you're in a live class- the more I do this workout the more I will learn the moves- I hate when there is too much instruction- I get bored easily. Not with this workout!" - Joanne

"Lots of aerobics, works out your heart, keeps you fit and at the same time a bit of dancy moves, I really enjoyed this workout..The girls are enthusiastic and the music follows the workout..I loved it!" - Shirley

"I bought my DVD from Collage video, they rate videos and you can watch a clip before you buy them. I still am hoping you will come out with another one, I am your biggest fan and try to tell people about it. I have not seen any classes in Chicago area though." - Leigh Ann M.

"OMG! The DVD is FABULOUS!!! Look out, here come the Lim Twins!!! And this ends any excuse I may have to loose all the junk-in-my-trunk. Thanks for having such a great passion to make this DVD possible. Thanks for continuing to teach workout and instructional classes. You've got a tremendous drive for what you do." - Andrea

"I LOVE this DVD! It's a great workout and you will absolutely break a sweat (which is the whole point, right?) but anyone can do it. Work at your own pace and stick it out. It's very easy to follow for the most part. I got messed up at a couple spots the first time through it but I'm confident it's "user error" and I'll pick it up after a couple of times. That's the great thing about it...you don't have to be all that coordinated and they give you prompts on what's coming next so you're ready. The boxing is my favorite part but it meshes so well with the dance, toning and ZEN that you wont be disappointed. The ladies keep it fresh and entertaining so you al...most forget how hard you're working and you'll be surprised how quick the time flies by. I was so engaged the first time I did it, that I actually clapped at the end of the first two song as if I was in class and the ladies were right there in my family room with me. Then I realized I was alone and felt a little stupid. LOL
It's broken down into sections so it's not overwhelming for the newbie. Plenty of prompts to let you know what's coming next. They always give safety tips like not letting your knee go past your toes. Unbelievable that half of the hosts are 50 years old! Good luck guessing which ones. Easy to follow. Completely engaging! Filmed in HD Upbeat, fun music." - Carrie

" Just worked out with the girls using the new DVD. Awesome workout ladies! Thank you." - Cynthia

"After years in the business, you have the ultimate reward - your very own DVD! I am so proud of you and Debbie and what your company has become. I started watching the DVD and couldn't stop and I was excited to finally see Christina teach. She's dynamite, just like her Mom and Aunt! When Mike came home and saw that the DVD was in HD, he insisted we go downstairs to watch it on the big screen. I think he enjoyed it as much as I did. He loved the music and said the DVD looked very professional. You guys have done an awesome job, what an accomplishment for Z-Box - CONGRATULATIONS!!" - Michelin
