1.0 out of 5 stars I love Billy but this is bad September 6, 2008
I am a huge Billy Blanks fan. I have 16 of his Tae Bo DVDs and have greatly enjoyed them. This Funk DVD sadly came as a very big disappointment. The set was not the format I was used to with his usual "crew", rather, it was large with many more people. Some of the crew were lacking the positive engery that is usually put forth in Tae Bo videos that keep it fresh and fun. The sound was a little poor and the funky moves were not really all that different from the usual moves. Billy was fantastic at "funking" the moves up in slow time; he really looked great and funky but when the fast time count comes, the moves are more or less the old tae bo moves. I normally am pushed physically during Billy's work outs, but I barely broke a sweat. If you have high expectations like I did, you may not enjoy this video.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Billy's best September 13, 2008
Verified Purchase
I have been doing Tae Bo for nine years and have a large assortment of workouts. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with this DVD. For one thing, it is fairly easy compared to other Tae Bo work outs. I didn't really feel as much of a muscle burn as I had with other work outs. Some of the newer moves are fun but overall most of the moves are just repackaged Tae Bo. Also a lot of the people in the background don't seem to care about the work out like in other DVDs. My biggest complaint, which I have noticed when I bought the Tae Bo Amped DVDs as well is that the music they have picked is super annoying.

I actually wish I could return this DVD. If you are a die hard Tae Bo fan you might (emphasize might) want this, but if you are looking for good Tae Bo I would not recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAVE FUN LOSING WEIGHT! December 6, 2008
Although, I use the Tae Bo "Fat Blasting Cardio" dvd, Sun - Thu and Tae Bo "Bootcamp Elite - Maximum Power " dvd on Fri every week as my physical fitness regimen, I still like trying out the other Tae Bo dvds. Tae Bo "Funk"is a very relaxed workout. If you are used to the structured, high energy workouts often experienced with the other Tae Bo dvds, you might be disappointed but this workout will definitely help you lose weight in a very relaxed, and fun environment. You'll still burn approximately 500 calories! It is still very intense especially if you are a new user. So I would highly recommend this dvd for first timer users who are ready to get in shape and lose weight in a fun way. Do not mistake the relaxed atmosphere for a poor workout. I have used and still use Tae Bo to keep in shape. When I started Tae bo in February 2006 I was a size 6 and today I'm a size 0. So take it from me, you'll still lose weight with this workout.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Funky March 21, 2009
Let me start by saying that I am a huge Tae-bo fan and have been doing Tae-bo for the better part of 10 years. However, I have to be honest. All of Billy's subsequent videos (Boot Camp, Foundation and Energy, etc.) are essentially repackaged Taebo moves with not much new. Sure, he's added resistance bands and the like to some of his workouts, but the moves are the same. That said, this Funk video was a total joke. First of all, the so called "latest hip hop moves" are NOT the latest. In fact, most of the moves are from the 80s and 90s. (At one point, one of the guys pops and locks which is break dancing. Billy's daughter did the running man, which is from the MC Hammer era.) I was hoping that Taebo would be merged with some of the hottest dances over the last couple of years, such as the souljah boy. Well, I was sorely disappointed. AND there is no hip hop music in this so called hip hop workout--just his usual hokey soundtrack that sounds like it is also from the 80s. The funny thing is Billy was really getting into to and at one point, he ripped off his shirt to show how to work the abs. He also keep saying, "Terminator--Arnold Swhargenner." I know I spelled that wrong, but the point is this--the Terminator was cool a LONG TIME AGO. It was weird. He kind of reminded me of my dad or one of my uncles trying to be cool. Like them, Billy just dates himself! Do not order this DVD if you are expecting it to be like some of the other hip hop workouts on the market. It's the same taebo with some breakdancing moves...LOL.

1.0 out of 5 stars funky....but not in a good way..... June 30, 2010
I normally like Billy's videos but uggh....awful on so many levels. Here are the good points-you do move, I wore my step counter and had about 2800 steps or so in doing the workout, so that was good, showing a range of young/old, fit, not-so fit, also good. Huh, that pretty much sums up the good.... Now the not-so-good. Strange, choppy movements that are supposed to be hip-hop done by people that seem to have no rhythm, with a couple of exceptions. Billy's consistent grabbing the sides of his pants, which seemed to be a misguided attempt to show you more clearly the move-enough already-leave your pants alone! I also expected some kind of music that matched the "funk" moves, but it is the same kind of music and out-loud counting in his regular workouts. On the fun factor-big zero....not fun, not like basic tae-bo and the moves are really bad.

Luckily I borrowed from the library because if I had purchased this I would have been highly annoyed with wasting my money. Even if you like Billy (and I do) this is one to avoid. He has so many good ones that you should pass on this one and get anything else by him, but avoid this one at all costs.

I usually enjoy Tae-Bo, but this was not up to Billy's usual standards. Would have been much more fun if you could actually hear the music - it was so muffled that sounded like it... Read more
