This is an awesome DVD set. If you are one that gets bored with workout DVD's this will keep you busy. There are strength and cardio in all three of the workouts!
Different, but Great!

"I workout regularly with Tae Bo and use pretty much all of the programs that have been available up to now. I love them all. I love working hard!
This set of programs is different from Billy Blanks' many previous ones in several ways. Billy has broken the work down into four elements: Foundation, Energy, Strength and Power, and bases the four workouts on each of these themes. There are new combinations of moves and new music, and together they create unique workouts from the previous ones.
At first I didn't think I liked them, because they are more broken up into little chunks. That is, after doing the moves slowly, the number of cranked-up reps that follow is fewer than in previous Tae Bo programs. I thought I wasn't getting as much of a workout, but, in fact, it was just as good. My heart rate was in my target zone, and I took as many, if not more, steps.
It's nice to see the participants getting a little older (same folks, updated looks), and the studio setting is more updated and colorful than previously.
I miss the older workouts and will probably alternate between the older ones and the new ones.
If you're looking for something different in Tae Bo, give these a try. But don't expect an Advanced Advanced workout. These are more modulated, but they'll do the trick just the same."
