Movie Reviews

Hey, are you falling over?

"I've owned three other Billy Blanks workouts in the past, and while I had fun doing them, I had trouble balancing. I finally bought this DVD so I could go through and learn the moves slowly and get the footing right. I'm really glad I did! Even though you'll only need to use the Foundation segment once to get the moves down, it's definitely worth owning. I could tell the difference the very next time I worked out with one of my other tae bo DVDs. And the Energy section is a good workout that you can do over and over. I totally recommend this compilation for tae bo beginners (or people like me who were still falling all over the living room)."

"This is my first Tae Bo Billy Blanks workout. Billy is energetic and he leads a very large class. The first part of this DVD: "Foundation" is a very good instructional workout for basic Tae Bo---Billy explains the moves and shows them to you. The second part: Energy ties the moves you just learned in "Foundation" together in a faster (but not overwhelmingly fast) workout that will get you sweating some.
One of my pet peeves is that I do not like a crowded set on my exercise DVDs. The large class does, however, portray a wide variety of people that is encouraging in the sense that it isn't just the fittest of the fittest working out. This large class, however, counts out loud continuously and this, I find to be very annoying after the first 2 times of working out to it. Another annoying thing is that Billy will be in the middle of exercising and then he stops abruptly and begins moving among the crowded set. This breaks my "flow" as I am first learning the moves. Then Billy proceeds to NOT do even amounts of moves per sides---another pet peeve of mine! And last, but not least, when Billy tells you to work your right side, he works his right side too and this causes you to work/move the opposite side as him throughout the workout.( he does the same thing on the left side).
It's a good start to learning Tae Bo if you can get past my "pet peeves", but I've decided that I'll learn cardio kickboxing elsewhere!"
Beginners, please read!!

"If you are a beginner, you want Billy Blanks' Tae-Bo - Instructional Workout, Basic, Advanced, 8-Minute Workout (1999)

As for this (Foundation/Energy) its great if you've been doing Tae Bo for a while. Honestly, this is a great set!!! Just be sure you start out with the right DVDs.

Great for starting Tae Bo

"This is a must have if you want to learn the moves for all his other Tae Bo DVDS. There are 2 workouts. The first explains the moves, the other puts them to use. I felt great after doing the workout.

I only gave it 4 starts instead of five since he can be a little confusing. He does not let you mirror him (like in a Kathy Smith workout). But he is so motivating, that it is well worth getting past that and doing the workout.

I love Tae Bo!"
