Certified instructor description:
A classic Tae Bo workout that progressively builds in intensity. These moves must be Billy's actual favorites — his entire class is having fun and Billy seems to be genuinely enjoying himself (e.g. big smiles, pumping his arms between sets). He also explains what each routine does and why he likes it (e.g. “I love this one; it really targets your hips”). Billy has lots of favorites so this workout is unusually varied — never more than 16 reps of anything. You'll begin with simple punches/kicks and end with more challenging combos (e.g. “three jabs and a rear kick,” “jumping jack roundhouse”). ©2006.
