Certified instructor description:
Classic Tae Bo with a twist — each segment begins at a slower pace and ends with a flat-out burst ("so it explodes, like a bomb"). This slow/fast format maximizes fat-burning by keeping your body challenged, but not exhausted. In addition to this "aerobic interval" technique, Billy also includes additional tweaks to boost results. Your core is often engaged; your arms are always active and your body is constantly in motion (side-to-side, front-to-back ... often incorporating body rotations and kickbox combinations). As you'd expect, many of the exercises feature "explosive" moves like jumps, jacks and mountain climbers. ©2011.
