This exercise DVD is almost perfect! There are two workouts on the video. The first is about 45 min. long and really gets your heart pumping. It covers all areas - legs, arms, rear, and abs without a person having to get down on the floor or use supplementary equipment. It's a great cardo workout and isn't hard to follow. There are a few tricky steps but it doesn't really matter if you do it perfectly, just so you keep moving. After all, Billy isn't watching you. I didn't give it a 5 because there were a few repetitive parts, a silly part with abs, and his outfit was downright obnoxious! Overall, though well worth it if you want to have fun, get energized, and burn some calories while shaping up.

TOUGH but excellent :-)

"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."
Alright, but definitely not ULTIMATE

"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."
