You'll be sweating calories when you do this workout. It's fantastic and effective and tough, but very worth it. I've done this now four times and never think I'll make it through, but somehow do and even though it's early stages, I'm beginning to see the hint of results.
It's 90 minutes of almost non-stop combinations that Tae Bo are known for. It's his longest workout to date (you can stop at a set 59 minute breakpoint) so you must already be fit. There are all the regular Tae Bo moves like fast feet and quick steps etc so you should have a basic knowledge of his work to make it easier on yourself although he does cue very well. Then after those combo's there is aerobic/toning intervals.
I'd never recommend this to someone who's just beginning to work out or to a Tae Bo newcomer. However, if you are already fit and want a big challenge for yourself, then this is for you. You'll be sweating hard and buring calories like crazy. This is a great fun workout.

I am an avid Taebo fan, but the intensity is lacking in this one. If you can fake smile and high-five each other during the routine then the workout is too easy. The "dance" section is cheesy. This workout is longer (90 mins compared to 55mins), but less intense. If you are looking for a difficult workout, I would HIGHLY recommend the Taebo Get Ripped:Advanced Series. There are (2) 55 min workouts and (1) 8 min workout.

This is classic tae bo. No billy bands, no squat thrusts, no fatigues, no drills, no boot camp screaming. Thank goodness! Just punching and tae bo combos. The music is good and loud. Billy is on his game this time. At the end, he gets a little funky and does dance moves. So funny to watch the students try to get down. Lots of fun. Get it. Do it.

I don't understand the bad reviews for Ultimate Tae Bo--I think it's great! I have a large collection of Tae Bo DVDs, and haven't found one I didn't like (of course there's some I enjoy more than others). A couple reviewers indicated that this workout wasn't challenging enough; one even went so far as to say she "didn't break a sweat." If you do the moves correctly, you'll sweat--trust me! Just ask the soaked clothes I had to peel off after 89 minutes! I've been working out for years and am very fit little lady, and I still found it challenging. Someone said the free style dancing was "a waste of time." I guess that all depends on the person, but my daughter (13 years old) and I LOVED it. Another reviewer said that the old Tae Bo Advanced workouts are not available on DVD, but that's incorrect because I own the DVD. At least she was right when she said that the Tae Bo Advanced was a great and challenging workout. I don't mean to pick on the previous reviewers, and some points just come down to personal preference, but to say this workout isn't challenging is just plain poppycock.

And if you don't have 89 minutes to spare, you can choose to do the 28 min workout. Some of the exercisers in this portion use the amped bar, but it is not necessary. You could incorporate light weights if you wanted to, but the workout is fine without any bells or whistles.

I hadn't done Tae Bo for a while and of course I had to come back with the Ulimate DVD...it's a great workout, but tough!
I exercise with DVD's 4-6 days a week and I am continually looking for workouts that are: 1. More than 45 minutes of continuous cardio, 2. A continuous workout, 3. An intermediate/advanced level workout, 4, Interesting with good music, and 5. enthusiastic instructor. This DVD contains all this and more.
It begins with a "blended" sort of workout, meaning that the warm-up moves straight to the aerobic practice with no big drop in intensity--it slowly builds.
The 90 minute workout would be familiar to all past Tae-Bo users (punches, kicks, slides with punches and kicks, leg liftss, etc), but about midway through, Billy adds a little funky dancing that brought a smile to my face...not really tough, but it was a fun and a change of pace. It was nice to see the exercisers smiling and having a good time.
I would recommend this DVD to a more intermediate/advanced home exerciser because of the length of the practice and also the intensity. Granted, a beginner maybe able to start with this and do all the moves at a slow pace. Then, that person would have a DVD that they could use for a very long time.
This is a great cardiovascular workout. I like it!!!

This is the first TaeBo DVD I have purchased featuring Billy Blanks. I have been hesitant to try his DVDs because it seemed quite commercialized, but I am so glad I did! I love this tape and Billy and his crew make it fun, fun, fun! The group energy is incredible and there are "real" people in the class working hard along with you. Billy gets right up to the camera at times and motivates you like he's right in your living room; it's so funny, I smile and laugh while working up a great sweat.

This DVD includes 2 separate workouts:
1. 90 minutes "Ultimate Tae Bo" is really a "test" of your physical endurance. Billy and his entourage really make this an easy to follow yet challenging workout. I like it that he starts each sequence slow so you can get the moves down. Then they speed is up for the challenge. After just about every sequence you get a short breather (break), but keep your heart rate up. During the workout Shellie and the others count 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 so you can work on just getting through the group of 8 repetitions. I have not made it through this workout, but I will someday!

2. 25 minute "Turbo Charged Fat Burner". For an easier/shorter workout this is a great challenge too and will help you work up to the 90 minute routine. Half the class uses his new workout bar, but you don't have to use it as the other half of the class performers the move without his special bar.

You also get a "Learn the Tae Bo Moves" section. I have not checked this out yet as I did not have trouble following his moves. I have difficulty with some of the fast-paced workouts on the market as I am somewhat uncoordinated with the foot and arm movements. This one is easy to follow and quite rewarding!

If you use this tape 2-3 times per week you will surely get results!!!
