Created by Billy Blanks in the 1990s, Tae Bo® is a popular cardio-boxing fitness workout designed to target several areas of the body. This type of exercise routine is generally combined with music, and it is known to be an intense aerobic workout. If you are considering purchasing a digital versatile disc (DVD) of a Tao Bo® fitness instructional video, you have many choices of programs and instructors. Think about what you want in your in-home instructor, your workout preferences and overall budget before choosing the best Tae Bo® DVD to meet your individual needs.
If you want to learn from the creator, consider buying a Tae Bo® DVD from Billy Blanks. He offers several versions of the program, including the original video and many other advanced workouts that incorporate this fitness exercise. Blanks typically does the routine while explaining the movements and trying to motivate the viewer with praise. Think about whether you prefer the instructor to simply demonstrate the movements or want someone who’s speaking to you at the same time. Decide whether you want a male or female instructor as well.
Complete an honest assessment of your workout situation before choosing a Tae Bo® DVD. If you have been in a sedentary lifestyle and are just starting to get back into shape, you might want to start out with the original program. If you are an active athlete and simply want to incorporate a new style of exercise into your routine, you might want to purchase an advanced Tae Bo® workout DVD.
You can choose from specific target-area DVDs, such as abdominal-focused or fat-burning Tae Bo® workouts. If you are pregnant, you might want to consider a prenatal workout DVD that will focus on building muscles in the areas you’ll be using for labor as well as help you avoid movements that could injure your unborn baby. Different DVDs have different music backgrounds, so choose one that features music that motivates you.
Another thing to consider before purchasing a Tae Bo® DVD is your workout style. Some Tae Bo® fitness DVDs have only one main workout that is repeated over and over. Others will allow you to change up your workout by choosing different body areas each time. If you have a busy schedule, you might want to find one that gives you different workout time options. For example, you might choose a 15-minute workout one day and an hour-long program the next day.
Many people must consider their budgets as part of their decision-making process. Choose a Tae Bo® DVD that fits within yours. If you do not have much money to spend, consider buying a used DVD on sale. If money is no object, you can choose from the newest versions that might even provide interactive options.
