Tae bo let down

"I regularly do Tae Bo as a way to cross-train. When I saw this DVD, I was excited thinking it would be a fast-paced 30 minute work out. Wrong. Billy seems very disorganized as though he hadn't choreographed the work out ahead of time. With so many other quality Tae Bo workouts out there, I wouldn't suggest wasting your money (or time) on this one."
Gave it to charity

"I, like the other reviewers, was also very disappointed in this workout. I didn't feel like I had worked out at all, and don't ever recall breaking a sweat or really breathing heavily. I did it once and put it in my charity bag."

"I love the power round DVD's. I realize a lot of people don't. They dont' get good reviews. but let me tell you my experience with these tapes. I lost 30 lbs during the first part of the year doing the "12 power rounds" before work in the mornings and eating right.
It took me two months to work up to the 20 power rounds and now I have finally gotten strong enough to do the 30 and it is just right for a 50 yr old overweight woman... It leaves me breathless and feeling like I have really accomplished something. I sweat. I absolutely love them. I have tons of Billy tapes/DVD's but this set is just right for my fitness level and it works for me. I wouldn't trade my power rounds for anything.
It is all a matter of perspective....and for me, these power round are just right!
I recently ordered the amped kit but have not received it yet. The reason I ordered it is because it is based on cardio bursts just like the power rounds. I am looking forward to trying it as well..
The reason a lot of women give up on taebo is because the tapes are long and hard and they can't do them. Especially if they are older and overweight like me. I say start with the power rounds. You will be able to do them and you will feel like you have worked out.
But get the set. The 12, the 20 and the 30. Work you way up and then try something else. That's what I did. I can now do 30 minute bootcamp 1 and 20 mintues of celebrity fit cardio. But I couldn't start out with that. At first, the 12 power rounds was very difficult. .... I love taebo and the power rounds are my favorite tapes so far.
And no matter what anyone says, if you do the 12, 20 or 30 power rounds with exaggerated moves, you have really worked out.. You just choose the one that you can do depending on your fitness level. They changed my life. I will never look at exercise the same. Billy Blanks rocks!
Good for a quick cardio workout

"I'm kind of surprised at how many people disliked this dvd...and how much they disliked it. I have the boot camp dvds and this one and I like them all. They each have their flaws but for the most part they deliver good solid workouts. For someone to say they didn't even break a sweat while doing this workout...I kinda think they're exaggerating.
For someone who's at an advanced level this may not be the dvd for them...but if you're a beginner or even somewhere in the middle (like me), this is a good cardio workout. I have 2 left feet so I find some of the kicking steps a bit awkward...but that's just the spaz in me.
the only thing I don't like about this dvd is that the sound isn't really synced with the picture but it's not that big a deal.
