Certified instructor description:
Eight short segments, each with a different workout style or fitness goal. They all feature Billy's legendary energy, motivation and effectiveness. Each of the four aerobic segments emphasizes a different technique — punches/jabs, fast-footwork, varied kicks or a mix of all three motions. The three aero/tone programs blend targeted toning into classic Tae Bo fat-burning. They include both aero/tone intervals and targeted body-sculpting sequences (e.g. all upper body or all lower body). The all-toning section is primarily abs-focused. No equipment needed; Billy uses controlled moves and your own body weight for resistance. ©2012.
