This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Turbo Kick Round 17

I have been embarrassingly lazy about learning a new round. It got so bad, that I had to go back to teaching Turbo Kick Round 16, which is the round I certified on back in April 2003. I finally put my foot down, and told participants that I would have new music and new choreography when I returned from vacation.

I've been getting a little tired of teaching cardio kickboxing lately, but I was completely invigorated by Round 17. I liked the music, and the choreography is interesting - there's enough options for an advanced class, but you can keep it at the basic layers for a beginners' class.

Part of the appeal is that they've finally indexed the DVD properly now, so each chapter corresponds to a new section. Moreover, they've separated the "breakdown" from the "class" so you can easily find and focus on whichever part you want.

I'm really excited about my renewed interest in Turbo Kick. Good thing too, because I need to renew my certification in the next eight months, and part of the process includes attending two workshops.
