This workout is AMAZING!
on September 16, 2007
I can't rave enough about Tae Bo! Billy Blanks whips you into shape with this high energy workout. Let me tell you a little about my workout history: I have tried so many workouts, from ballet, to walking, to yoga. I have NEVER stuck with any of them. Walking was probably the one I did the longest, but I never felt as though I was getting my heart rate up, and I never felt any smaller/fitter. The first time I tried Billy Blanks' Tae Bo, I was sweating, my heart rate was up, and frankly, I felt like I was going to die. Haha, now that might not be the feeling you are looking for, but the results of this workout are immediate. It is something I hope to do for the rest of my life.
Now, I've never tried any of his other Tae Bo workouts, so I can't comment as to how this one differs from those, but I'll tell you the amped bar really heats things up. I mean, I didn't use it for the first week, and I still felt the burn. However, once I added it in, I seriously felt amazing. In the two weeks, I have gone from a size 12 back to a size 10. I'm on week 3, and I feel great! Hopefully, I'll get into my dream size 6 in a few months!
I would say that this workout is not good for someone totally out of shape; I mean, I am probably 20 lbs. bigger than I should be (150 lbs at 5'9"), and I thought I would die the first couple of times I did this. However, if you are dedicated, and stick with it--even if it's just for a couple of minutes at a time, or a couple of times a week--you will feel a difference. I wish I had tried Tae Bo years ago! Like Billy says, "If there's a will, there's a way." Tae Bo is the way for me! Good luck with your weightloss goals!
