Editorial Reviews

In Basic Training BootCamp, Billy teaches you exactly how to get started on the path to a better you. Billy takes his experience from 6 days of real basic-training exercise and concentrates it into one get-you-started workout that lays the foundation for your new body, new spirit, and the new life you want.

Folks! This workout is no joke. I thought I could get through basic training without stopping. Well, I could not even get through first 20 minutes and had to stop because the burn in the muscles was just unbearable. This is a very thorough workout. Here's what to expect.

First of all, this workout builds endurance. If you reach a point where you get through the entire workout without interruptions then you are guaranteed to obtain an endurance of an athlete. I liked the bands, but they are usefull only for the upper body exercises. When Billy Blanks began the legs routine, the bands were just on my way and frankly did not add any resistance to the kicks. So feel free to stop using the bands once you begin the kicks. And please do not even try to get through the entire DVD if you are a beginner or only somewhat in shape. What good would it be if you have sore muscles and cannot even feel it because you died during that push-up routine? Take breaks and slowly build your endurance. Maybe after about a month you can try to be a hero and actually complete this workout and still be able to walk to a shower rather than have someone else get you there.

I'm an advanced exerciser and have Billy's tough tapes in my library. I ordered this for some variety, and I loved the idea of the bands. I had to try it out.

Let me tell you, the bands make a HUGE difference! I got an excellent workout and am sure I'll be super sore tomorrow. And this is just the BASIC dvd. I can't imagine what his more advanced Bootcamp workouts are like.

Regardless of your fitness level, give this a chance. You can start without the bands and work your way up, making this DVD one you'll enjoy for quite a while without the worry of outgrowing it.

This is tough if you are only beginning. I (like the first reviewer) used to exercise quite a lot, then for one reason or another, I stopped and now am trying to get back in the swing of it. If you are either not fit or only very moderately fit, this will challenge you, however there is hope. It does get easier the more you do it and I have to say it's well worth it. It gets you sweating and gets your heart racing and that gets the weight off. Challenge yourself and you'll be so happy and the rewards are great.

I love the Bootcamp Series. Some people may not prefer them because they are less cardio intensive than some of his other workouts. However, in this workout, Billy gets your heartrate up and then you use the bands, which even though it doesn't feel like it, actually burns more calories because you have constant resistance with the bands.

I have been doing Billy's tapes for a long time. I am in very good shape and this workout really makes me work up a sweat. If you are a beginner and don't like high impact exercises then this is probably not for you. Billy does alot of squats and pushups in this workout.

I also like this workout because it is an entire body workout. Besides working your arms and legs, there is on the floor stomach workout that is very intense. However, as Billy says, "You have to give some to get some" and this workout definitely makes you work. Also, the Basic Training workout has some exercises that I have never seen Billy do, and believe me, I have done ALOT of different Billy workouts. Even though I am not a beginner, I put this DVD in my rotation of Billy workouts because I like the variation. If you are a beginner and are in good shape, then I would recommend this workout. You will definitely see results if you stick with it.

If you are a beginner to exercise as I was...this is the DVD for you...very great detailed instructions, but you can follow the instructions easily as you exercise along with him...don't get me wrong...if you are just beginning it may take you a while to get through the whole session, but well worth the money

I've been an advanced exerciser for many years now and have especially loved Taebo. When this came out, I had to give it a try. My sister had purchased it so she let me give the basic video a try. Oh my gosh!!! I couldn't believe how sore I was. I watched the video first then did it. It was so much more challenging then it looked when I watched it through. I used to think that my shoulders were one of my strongest body parts, but I was really struggling because those bands make such a difference. Even though I was sore, I asked my husband to buy the set for Christmas and am loving the videos.

I have been sedentary for about 3 years now, and I used to be a moderately active person. I used to work out a few times a week, and it was always a workout that got my heart pumping like MTV Grind (unlike Curves) or an hour and a half mountain bike ride. I really allowed myself to get into a slump, and am over 100 lbs overweight right now. It was really hard to get through this workout for the first time, but I did not give up. I slowed down, and walked it out, but didn't give up. The second time was easier, but it was still very difficult not to give up. I had to force myself to keep going. Blanks offers the kind of workout I have always used, the kind where you don't kid around. You go for maximum results in this one, learn the moves, and then move on to the Ultimate DVD. I have watched that also, and it is just like the Basic, only more circuit work, and less abs. There is a separate Abs workout for that. This is my first time doing a Blanks workout, and for some reason, I knew his workouts would be a challenge where you see instant results. I can already see and feel a difference in my muscles, in my energy level, and in my psyche. Now I just have to keep it up. Some have said that Blanks goes too fast for a beginner, but that is what rewind is for. If you keep doing it, you'll be happy that he didn't slow down because you'll be bored once you master it. You will not be bored with this one because Blanks kicks your butt!!! And for those of you who see that I'm 100lbs overweight and think it'll be a breeze for you, think again! The people doing the routine with Billy are skinny and still sweat like crazy. Good luck!!!
