I love this workout. It is definitely for high intermediates to advanced level. I break into an intense sweat. Use light hand weights if you don't have the Billy Bands (you can get on Ebay). Billy is uplifting and inspiring. He delivers a great workout!

I loved this workout! Focus on strength, but also has some cardio. The moves aren't diffucult, and you don't have to be extremely corrdinated. Easy to keep up with and follow, but trust me, you'll be sweating! You will get a great workout with this DVD.
Also, you can either purchase the bands (at Target)that are used with this video, or just use light hand weights, which is what I did. And you still get a great workout!

Great upper and lower body strength workout!

"I respectfully disagree with Chocolaterose. I do this workout a couple of times a week (with at least one rest day in between, of course). For the person used to working out with weights or resistance bands, this is a great, tough upper- and lower-body workout. I feel it in my arms, legs, and glutes after I'm done. I have been doing this workout for some time now and have never been injured. Beginners or anyone unsure about the difficulty should of course not go all out the first time (maybe forgo the use of the bands), and it is always good practice to watch first before attempting. As for JulieAnn leaving the workout in the middle: if you look closely, you will see her picking up pieces of her resistance band on her way out of the frame. I believe the band broke or came unscrewed in some way, and this is why she left. The new resistance bands are adjustable (a nice touch), and one should take care that they are properly tightened before and during use; the included band instructions mention as much. Again, this is a wonderful strength video for anyone who is ready to feel the burn with their resistance workout."
A decent beginners workout.

"To the reviewer before me. The billy bands they're using are not easy, they make the workout even tougher! The grimaces on their faces is from their muscles getting a good, hard workout. The only people making the faces are the people using the billy bands. They're in great shape and that just means the billy bands are a challenge for them too. You don't have to exercise with the bands to get a good beginners cardio workout.
This is a nice workout for someone new to Tae Bo. In the dvd most of the people workout with billy bands but those are a real challenge if you're a beginner. There is a girl in the group who doesn't use the billy bands. Don't worry about them, you'll get a good workout without them or you can buy light weights if you feel you're up to it. I think this would be a great addition to your routine. Try doing it a few times a week and in no time you'll be able to get all the way through and you'll start seeing changes in your body within a few weeks. I certainly did."
Kicks My Butt

"I am so tired of people commenting that a workout is "too hard", give me a break. What is the point of working out if you are not going to push yourself! On that note, this workout does just that. Wow, I am an at an advanced level and this workout totally kicks my butt, I love it! The workout definitely focuses more on strength moves, but does a great job of toning both the upper and lower body. Unlike the other review, if done correctly, the upper body movements will not hurt your neck, but you will feel it the next day. The lower body movements are great at targeting the butt and saddlebag area. I highly recommend this workout to anyone who is looking for a great total body work out!"
