Since this was recorded on video 14 years it will naturally look dated. Got to love that plush red carpet! The music actually has held up pretty good but that might just be nostalgia again helping out with that. One thing many people out there will love about this is there is a whole lot less COUNTING on this one although Billy does count and he does have Shellie count when he is teaching.
The class is 55 minutes. You have 33 minutes of cardio and then he slightly cools you down for floor work. The next part is the best part about this class the LEGENDARY 11 minute floor leg routine. Man that thing BURNS! Then there is a quick 5 minutes of abs and then he stretches you out. As a bonus you stand up and do his "card work out" where you take a deck of cards and lay them on the ground and then squat down to pick them up - och. This part is an add-on and you can just cool down if you want to stop.
If you are new to TaeBo I would go online and view one of his tutorials before trying this even if you are an advanced exerciser. Beginners should try to locate Tae-Bo Basic first and work up to this one. If you caught the Tae Bo train late - treat yourself and do this one so you will know what all us oldies are talking about when we say the new dvds are good but not up to snuff with the classic Advanced.
As a last point and small pet peeve, Koreans actually pronounce TaeKwonDo just as it looks with Tae sounding like Day not Tie. I think this got confused with Thai kickboxing early on and just got spread that way.
In summary, if you want good production quality, go sit on the couch and watch Titanic again. If you want to learn self-defense, go to a martial arts class. If you want an excellent series of workout videos, buy Tae-Bo.
