Billy Blanks' Tae Bo: Ultimate Collection DVD Review

Visit Billy Blanks' Tae Bo: Ultimate Collection DVD SiteBilly Blanks' Tae Bo: Ultimate Collection is one of the best quality workout boxed sets on offer, and remains among one of the most purchased DVD sets in Britain. Tae Bo has been going strong since the late 1990s, and with good reason. Billy Blank's excellent system of kick-boxing workouts continues to deliver a fun, high-energy, full body workout which is among the best at burning calories. This recent Ultimate Collection of three DVDs contains 400 minutes and 4 discs full of workouts for cheaper than most celebrity DVD single disc editions, and with this much variety you're unlikely to tire of the workouts (though you will get tired, these things are intense!)

Of course the good thing about Tae Bo is there are different levels, so you can start with the Basic workouts, then move up to Advanced. If you're new to Tae Bo, you should definitely watch the instructional bits a few times to be sure you're not overextending on kicks or jabs--but it doesn't take long to get the proper form down. And if your range of motion isn't quite as good as it used to be, you can do lower kicks, etc.--Billy often mentions lower impact options as he goes along, and there's almost always a grandmother in the audience following along just fine with the rest just to show it can be done.

If you've never done a kick boxing workout before, then please don't be put off by the idea, as it's a great full body workout and you don't need to be a martial artist to try. The idea has certainly caught on, as even fitness superstars like Davina in her latest workout relies heavily on the kick boxing aerobic ideas pioneered by Billy Blanks and Tae Bo. Blanks is an authentic fitness instructor rather than a bubbly celebrity, but he does have an infectious and good natured way about him, and is a great motivator.

You do need to have a bit of room for Tae Bo, as you'll be moving from side to side doing kicks and such. One of the best things about Tae Bo is its fundamentally fun. You may be the biggest pacifist and wallflower, but when you're running around doing kicks and punches, it simply feels good and is fun in a way that normal aerobics rarely is. Again, a kick boxing workout may sound weird or "not like you," but do yourself a favour and give it a try.
