Billy Blanks Jr. continues in his father's fit footsteps (Tae Bo) with his own unique dance fitness routines. Dance with Me: Groove & Burn is an excellent, easy, fun fitness routine for anyone of any fitness level, and Blanks's enthusiasm is infectious. Dance with Me: Groove & Burn lets the user mix and match from three challenging, fun routines--classic disco, African, and Latin dance, with gentle warm-up, stretch, and cool-down segments too. A novice exerciser should probably begin with the warm-up and just one of the 13-minute dance routines. As you get more fit and want to up your challenge level, add more or do all three routines. Blanks also includes an excellent, brief tutorial about how to breathe during cardio workouts--a pointer so important it's hard to believe more fitness experts don't cover it. There is also the option to turn off the instruction so that once you've learned the moves, you can just dance along with the folks on the screen--almost as if you're in your own private dance studio. Blanks and his co-teacher and wife, Sharon, also include important arm-toning exercises for an all-over workout. Fans of Zumba or any dance-related fitness routine will love Dance with Me: Groove & Burn. --A.T. Hurley

4.0 out of 5 stars Move, Groove and Lose the Weight 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. The broadway-style choreography makes it quite enjoyable to join in.

This DVD is 50 minutes long and is broken down as follows:

-> Warm-up: easy moves and light stretches
-> Disco Dance Routine: 70s type moves (like in Saturday Night Fever movie)
-> African Dance Routine: full body moves and lunges
-> Latin Dance Routine: moves that focus on hips, legs and thighs
-> Cool down: deep breathing and cardio toning poses

There is also a breathing technique tutorial that demonstrates diaphragmatic breathing, which can give your body more stamina during your workout and strengthen your core muscles.

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. The instuctions inspire and motivate, as the energy of the demonstrators permeate through your screen. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Improving my health conditions August 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Getting back into exercise is more difficult when you are 63 and have severe arthritis plus an total knee replacement. After participating in the dance exercises, my blood pressure, cholesterol and pre-diabetic conditions all improved to the point that my medication for hypertension has been lowered and I have been kept off of medication for cholesterol and diabetes! This video delivers in so many ways and being critical of people enjoying life is missing the point. It still seems to be the case that those who criticize people dancing are the ones who don't have the courage to get up and dance themselves. It's not about competition, it's about fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-around if you're out of shape July 22, 2011
By jumpy1
Format:DVD
When i first did this video early this year, I was relatively strong and my abs were in ok shape, so I found this workout to be light and a little silly. I forgot about it. But a few months ago I was rear-ended and had to stop working out for a while so as not to strain my muscles. Even a little bit of weight was a strain, and I was in danger of hurting myself. Now am back to normal and have started working out again and on a hunch, pulled it out. Boy, is this a workout! It's tiring and really gets to your different back, abdominal, arm and leg muscles. Also, it forces you to learn moves/footwork that you wouldn't do normally, so you have to concentrate and every time I do it is an opportunity to get better at it. For the people here who say the moves are too difficult, I would say - treat it like you're a child and you just want to move, the more you do it, the better you'll get. So what if the first couple of times you suck? Honestly, I couldn't beLIEVE how different it felt, when I started doing it again, from when I was stronger.

At this point I believe they've really assembled a great series for people who need to just get up and MOVE, getting their heart going and strengthening their bodies gradually so they hardly notice. And given all the back injuries I've had over the last 25 years, I've learned that dancing is one of the best ways to realign yourself naturally. So what if I don't look great when I dance anymore because of back issues, but that's no reason not to do it -- it's the only way to keep yourself from getting worse. (FYI I also do yoga, weight-lifting, skating, cycling, skiing, etc.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Workout! March 7, 2011
By K. Huff
Format:DVD
I've been using this video for a few days and boy does it wear me out! I'm not sure how I feel about Billy Blanks and his wife. I can see how people would find them annoying. But the workout itself is a blast (I was surprised that I really enjoyed the African dance the most) and easy to follow. I have no dance experinece and I had very little trouble following Billy Blanks. I chose this DVD because I hate to work out and I'm really enjoying it. I can't wait to get the other one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun May 23, 2012
By Becca54
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased three Billy Blanks Jr. workout videos after seeing him on the tv show "Shark Tank". The videos are a fun addition to my workout routine and you will "break a sweat"! If you like to dance and burn calories at the same time, these may be the videos for you. I would say that the level of intensity is geared toward beginners and those of us that are a "particular age" with less energy than when we were in our 20's! Worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing and Sweatin' July 9, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was my first time working out with Billy Blanks Jr. and I love this DVD! Great workout, easy to follow. When I couldn't do exactly what Billy was doing I did my own thing. Just kept moving and had a blast. This DVD will absolutley be one of my favorites. I can customize it to suite my schedule and that's a huge plus. Look out Billy Blanks Sr. . . Jr's got me dancing and sweating!

Too stenous for me. I am a senior who wants so much to not be flabby and out of shape but could not do this one. Probably great for those who are already in shape to use.
