Editorial Reviews

Consider yourself old--well, experienced--if you didn't know that Billy Blanks, one of the first fitness gurus and the creator of Tae Bo, has a son who's something of a star in the fitness and dance worlds himself. Billy Blanks Jr.'s Dance with Me Cardio Fit combines those two disciplines, with the express aim of offering fat-burning routines that are not only challenging, but fun--"regardless of size, age, or fitness level," as he puts it. It works. Blanks, who's accompanied by wife Sharon and a quintet of relentlessly upbeat fellow workout enthusiasts, has energy to spare, with a positive and encouraging attitude that does indeed heighten the enjoyment of this vigorous workout. (The video can be viewed with or without Blanks's instruction; after a few times through, the latter option may appeal to those who don't care to be reminded to "make it funky," "get gangsta with me," "give me some flava," or Blanks's various other exhortations.) Following a brief explanation of proper breathing technique and a five-minute warm-up, the program offers three ten-minute sequences: hip-hop, country, and Bollywood. Each contains music and moves specific to the respective genre; the hip-hop portion features the "wassup," "lean rock," and "patty cake in the 'hood," among others, while the country section includes the "cowpoke" and other hands-on-the-belt-buckle-type steps, and the "bollyrock," "bollywave," and others can be found in the third and final part (a "custom workout option" enables users to sequence them in any order), with a two-minute, calorie-burning "cardio burst" at the end of each one. Blanks does a fine job of showing a move, repeating it, then gradually adding more steps before combining them all in one extended sequence. One need not be especially coordinated to handle all of this, although it helps; and while mastering the moves may not land you in a Madonna video (which can be found on Blanks Jr.'s résumé), Dance with Me Cardio Fit will assuredly put some fun into your fitness. --Sam Graham

4.0 out of 5 stars Dance DVD for a Fit Feeling December 13, 2010
Format:DVD
Mr Billy Blanks Jr is the son of an American icon when it comes to fitness. His father is the renown creator of the Tae Bo exercise program in the 1980s. This name is devired from Tae (kwon do) and bo(xing).

This DVD represents a shift from his father's Tae Bo routines, to dance routines. So instead of a sparring routine which has its own appeal, there are now dance routines, which have a wider appeal, and is a whole lot more fun.

This DVD is 46 minutes long and is broken down as follows:

- 5 minute Warm-up
- 12 minute Hip Hop Dance Routine
- 12 minute Country Dance Routine
- 12 minute Bollywood Dance Routine
- 5 minute Cool down

The dance routines can be done individually or they can be combined for a full length dance workout. The moves are pretty easy to follow, but still challenging at points. At times you may tend to forget that you are working out because of the fun factor. In the end you will be sweaty, but you will feel pretty good.

I recommend this DVD for those who normally find standard exercise DVDs to be boring and a drudgery.

5.0 out of 5 stars HELLO.....I never knew exercise could be so fun!! January 9, 2011
Format:DVD
Ok....so I am an advanced exerciser that has been exercising for the past 15 years. I do weights, cardio, quite a few challenging routines; I love the Jari Love workouts as well as TaeBo. BUT, my husband HATES to workout and has struggled through weight routines for years. He complains a lot about working out, and so I got him started on the Jari Love Body Rock dance workout. He loved that, so I kept looking around for more DVD's like it. I found this one at Target, and bought it on the off chance that it would be a fun workout we could do together. WE LOVE IT!! It is low-pressure, no-nonsense, fun fitness! BB Jr. and his wife are very fun loving, but super-easy to follow with the moves. Their high-energy, fun-loving personalities really make the workout fun! He focuses more on the workout being "your playtime" rather than "you-have-to-do-this-exactly-right" style. For me, I was concerned about this being too easy since quite a few workouts are too easy for me. Nope-this workout gets me sweaty as well! It also helps that he includes 2-minute cardio blasts at the end of each dance segment. Billy Blanks Sr. is much more intense than his son is; Billy Jr. mainly focuses on the workout being fun as well as effective. You can definitely tell he is a professional, but the moves are easy to follow! Now my husband looks forward to working out! This was worth every penny and we're ordering the other one as well! Oh yeah, and I think the Bollywood dance section is the most fun!! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price if you're a beginner July 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have used several workout dvd's and found this one to be a lacking. For the price I paid I guess I should have expected it. It was entertaining to switch up your style of dance throughout but you can't just play the video through. For each segment, whether it's warm up, cool down or the dance segments, you had to press play every time. Also, there is no instructional part to the video. He does it all during the workout, which makes it more difficult to keep up when you first start using it. I will probably use it a few times but it won't be long before I just get rid of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much fun! February 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first time I saw Billy blanks Jr. in action was after finding him through Comcast On Demand. After my first workout, I was hooked! I have watched them all, but Billy Blanks Jr. is really the only trainer I trust. It feels weird to put that in writing, but he loves what he does and is genuine about wanting a better quality of life for his viewers. The workout video On Demand was little less intense and the dance moves were less involved. I think I like this DVD even more for that reason. He will want to make you work out. I think about working out while at work. I can't wait to get home, put on my off-the-shoulder shirt, throw my hair up in to a ponytail and get it!! I have struggled with my weight for years and I finally feel like I could really stick with something. If you're questioning whether or not to get this video, rest your mind and just do it. Super fun and exciting workout. I can't say enough good things about it. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Banks Jr. Dance With Me Cardio Fit April 22, 2013
By Janice

This is a fun workout and it allows me to do a short twenty minute workout or do all the routines for an hour long workout! It requires very little space and you know when you are done that you have worked out your whole body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! January 28, 2013
By Melanie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an easy to follow, fun DVD. Billy Blanks Jr. is a great trainer who really makes you feel positive. I would say the level of cardo is moderate and the reason it's moderate rather than low is because there are high intensity cardio bursts at the end of each section. These only last two minutes, but really get your heart rate up. I'm in good shape, so I usually choose something more intense, but this is good for beginners to moderate excercisers.
