When I decided to try to get into some kind of shape again I tried a bunch of other, more current workout routines but I couldn't stick with them; they were not fun, or they were too involved or too lacking.
I searched for my old standby, the Tae-Bo tapes and was really happy to find them still available. I bought them and have used them every day since they arrived - which is longer than I've stuck with any of the other programs I tried..
It's true that the music is.... humorous and lacking but that's not what I bought them for. I bought them for their effectiveness, easy to pick up and follow routines and the end results.
I would recommend these to any one searching for a workout that is fun, easy to pick up and actually works.
PS - if you don't like the music on the tapes just turn on the stereo or your iPod and listen to the music you like.... after using this a couple of times you don't really need to hear what is being said - you can follow along visually.
The advanced tape is a very strong workout. At first I thought his inspirational motivation was kind of hokey, but as the workout progressed, I really started to like it. During the floor work, which is very challenging, he really keeps me going. There is one exercise, however, that smarts and it feels like he talks forever. But I keep with it and have really seen my body become more developed and my balance is a lot stronger.
My only complaint is that there is not any streching. In the advanced tape there is one strech after the leg work, which is definitely not sufficient. The tape ends with squats which are a great way to cool down, but then it just stops. I stretch on my own, because I feel that stretching is an integral part of exercising.
Overall, this is a great workout. When I first started kickboxing workouts, I was frustrated because it took me a few times to get the moves and it took me even longer to get strong enough to really work the moves. But it is worth it. I feel stronger, more centered and definitely look stronger and more defined.
