Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I have used different Billy Blanks workout videos and they all work well. I did the workout once a week, then worked my way up to two times a week and the results are quick to show. My body tone was tighter and my muscles grew quickly. It's great that it doesn't require equipment too. All you need is the dvd and your set to go. I think people had a hard time believing that this was the only workout i was doing. I didn't diet along with this, nor did i add anything else to my workout regimen. I did this and had a lot to show for it. My legs were toned and no longer flabby, my upper body strength increased dramatically, my abs were tight and toned and my arm size increased as well. My favorite thing about this workout is that i wasnt sore after and i also like that i was able to do the workout and it didn't bother any of my old injuries. It's worth every penny, and the results are fast. I will never use anything else because this works great! I recommend this to anyone no matter what their body size or type is. You can go slower and get results too while you work your way up.

Love this Tae Bo workout!

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I love all of the Tae Bo workouts by Billy Blanks! They're fun and effective. It doesn't really feel like you are working out. Time passes really quick when you do them. Plus you get to workout at home, which is nice! The Elite Boot Camp is especially good. It comes with resistance bands and some Billy Blanks energy thing.

You use resistance bands throughout the workouts. The bands that come with the whole kit are pretty good quality. If you don't buy the whole kit and just the workout DVD's do NOT buy some cheap bands somewhere. Those things don't feel good when they snap and smack you in the face! The Elite Bootcamp is great. It's not too difficult to do and you will see results! Be prepared to be sore when you first start the workout series. Those bands really work well. Billy is pretty encouraging but I always mute the sound because I like having music when I'm working out, so I don't usually hear him.

I highly recommend these workout DVD's. They're fun and give great results!

Fun Workout

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

Tae Bo Elite Boot Camp Series is a fun workout that makes you really feel like you've worked hard once you're done the DVD. During this workout, you use bands that create resistance to give you an even better workout. This is a great workout because you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Many times kickboxing classes are only offered at a gym that is very far away from my house, so I thought Tae Bo would be an alternative to driving to the gym.

This workout is not for beginning exercisers. There are difficult moves, and you will be sore after you complete a workout. There are three workouts in this boot camp series, and you can progress from the first, which is relatively easy, to the second which is more extreme. These two workouts are around 45 minutes each. The third workout is around 30 minutes and it focuses more on abs. You will definitely feel your abs tightening if you stick with this workout.

A good burn...because you see results quickly

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I love love love this workout and I keep revisiting it time and time again for 5 years now. Billy Banks is definitely an expert on sculpting the body quickly. Your arms will hurt, your but will hurt, your thighs will hurt, your shoulders will hurt, your abs will hurt, your back will hurt and many muscles you didn't know you had before WILL hurt. I think that it is best to get the whole system (with the resistance bands), because not all resistance bands were created equally lol. I know some people have tried to get the videos and the resistance bands from somewhere else (separately) but I do not think that the workout will be as effective. I have tried to buy cheaper bands from other sites, many of which have to bands to be used with the hands but that attach to one foot (not good) or the ones that do have each band attach to each hand and foot, as offered with this workout are made VERY cheaply and do not last long. there are many reviews about these others bands breaking. Also the resistance bands that come with this workout can also act as free weights while the others are made of some light material. The system is a definite must buy for both cardio, strength and toning.

Effective and Interesting Workouts

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I like this series a lot, it's huge in Japan from what I've heard. My favorites are Lower Body Boot Camp & Basic Training. If you don't have the bands he's using, no worries! Just buy some of those resistance bands with handles and your set. I have also tried doing the workouts with 2 sets of weights one heavy one light. I rest the weight on my legs for the lower body exercices and it works fine.

Love love LOVE it!!

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

During a recent health-kick, I decided to visit the Billy Blanks/Tae Bo Website (www.billyblanks.com) and found a package deal for something called Tae Bo Bootcamp Elite.  This caught my interest right away.

Even better, the package included three workout videos (Getting Started, Maximum Power and an Ab workout), along with an 8-minute power cardio video, the Billy Bands (like resistance bands but with weights attached.  In addition, I would get Billy Blanks' 7 Day Success Plan, 7 days of his energy formula and a lower body workout as well.

Day one - I fell in love!  Billy and his crew really know how to get you motivated and energized.  He is sensitive to people who are at a lower fitness level, and pushes people who are at a higher fitness level.  He offers alternative exercises to people who may have movement restrictions, and encourages exercisers to take breaks if they feel the need.

Unlike many workout videos that I have personally tried, this one really made me feel like I was in the studio with the entire crew.  Billy makes a point to encourage you directly and not talk to you as a child, but as someone who he is trying to help reach their goals.

I really don't like exercise, but Billy Blanks succeeded on making his workouts fun, challenging and inspiring.  I would recommend these videos (and the Billy Bands!!) to anyone who asked!!!

These workouts really work

By

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I did the regular tae bo workouts while I was in college, but I never really loved them.  Several years ago (I think it's been about 4), I saw a commercial on TV for these Billy Blanks Bootcamp workout videos.  I don't usually buy things I see on TV, but I was bored with my current workouts and wanted something new.  I really liked them!  Then they came out with the "Elite" videos, and I like these even better.  The difference is that these videos come with exercise bands that have a 1 pound weight in them, so it makes the workout a little more intense.  These workouts are definitely not for beginners, although you could definitely just not do as many repetitions of each exercise and work your way up.  You will be sore after doing them the first time, I promise!  And I think that is a good thing because you know they are working!  These videos give you a whole body workout.  I see a big difference in muscle definition with them, and they really help me maintain my current weight, or lose a few pounds when I need to (like after the holidays).

Kicks Butt literally

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

This Tae Bo takes the cake of them all. Billy has really out done himself with this one. This is not for beginners. I run ten miles every day. Five in the morning and five at night seven days a week. I also strength train three times a week. I use the Tae Bo DVD's in between all of it. I started with the beginning ones then, worked my way up to this one. I have tried several fitness DVD's and workouts, went to several classes and every time ended up getting bored after only a few weeks. I have been doing these DVD's for a year now. I never get bored. They are sooo fun! I think everyone no matter what their fitness level will love Tae Bo. They will easily be able to work up to the more difficult ones and never be bored with it. The fitness DVD's that Billy offers are affordable and are well worth the money. This is not a waste of time or money I promise. Now Billy even has his son making DVD's. I can not wait to try them and see if he follows dads footsteps!

I haven't been as thrilled with any but the original.

By 

from Racine, WI

Comments about Tae Bo - Elite Boot Camp Series:

I got this for the Abs workout, but I haven't been impressed with anything by Billy Blanks since the original three workouts.  His cuing is off, he just seems to not "have it" anymore.  I think that his workouts would be much better if he were accurate with his cuing and spent a bit less time on the warm-up portion of the workout.
