F09544 - Billy Blanks PT 24/7 7 DVD Ultimate Workout System
this is such a fun workout and the bands really help give you a harder workout. i've always liked his workouts and this is probably my favorite. cardio kickboxing is my fav form of exercise and this just helps give you a better workout.
Great Example of Resistance Training
I've been a tao bo fan for a couple of years-it has made me successfully lose 70lbs and sculpt my body in a way no other workout program has. PT 24/7 is a great resistance training program that helps build and tone muscle which improves calorie burning. I found the bands to be a little too long, so I put a knot in each of the bands near my foot. This tightened up the bands and gave me more resistance and I haven't had any issues since. Sometimes if I want more resistance, I'll wrap the bands around my hands like they do in some of the dvd's. Overall, its a great workout, most days I do two back to back as long as their not concentrated on all one area which would end up killing me lol! But in the beginning, I could only do one b/c it fatigued my body. I know ppl complain that they count, but it keeps you on track and encourages you to keep up with their speed-in the end, this helps burn more calories.
I have done a couple of the tapes so far and wow, I can tell this is going to be great. I love that the tapes are only 30 minutes but they really work you out. The bands are great and I sweat like crazy. I get an amazing workout. I also have no issues with the equipment. I'm so glad I purchased this and so excited to tone up. Thanks for carrying this on qvc, I only buy online items through qvc:-)
I just purchased this and I am pleased with the workouts. I work out just about every day and I was sweating. I like the 30 minutes workouts and was sore after doing them. I have no problems with the equipment so far.
I have many of Billy Blanks tapes especially the original on VCR tapes. Have other DVD exercise videos including ultimate taebo. These DVDs have you sweating, pratically drenched, and I don't sweat easily. Great workout, very challenging for 30 minutes. The bands are an excellent feature, you can always wrap them around the wrist part of the gloves if you are short to make the bands shorter. The gloves fit fine. They do not smell. Billy has kept the moves almost the same, but he also demonstrates and explains every movement which is great. I love his DVDs as he uses moves that are not difficult to learn and yes you can go at your own pace, as he states as long as your moving thats what counts. His workout do produce results better than others that I have tried.
One size does not fit all
The exercises on these videos are very similar to the first set of Tae Bo that Billy made. A lot of the moves are the same but this set has many more workouts. My very first set was on VHS and so I am glad I now have the DVDs. The workouts are great.
I am a short/petite woman. One size does not fit all. I don't know why people think that but it's ridiculous. The gloves do not fit well at all. The bands are a little too long so I don't really get that much of a resistance. I wish people would stop making one size fits all products.So essentially I am not able to use the bands or gloves.
The workouts are good so I will just do them without the bands. Oh well.
Once again, Billy has done it. He is awesome and he pushes you. I love this workout.
This is a great workout, even for someone just starting out. I sweat and sweat and it's fun too!
Not the Best
I purchased this product, and wasn't impressed at all. The quality, and color of the picture of the first dvd was not good at all. The gloves smell like harsh chemicals, and I wouldn't use it. They were to big for a woman's hands. I just hated the dvd system. The good thing is that he doesn't move "as fast" as the original tae-bo tapes. I only looked at the the first tape, so my receive is only based on that one. Overall I like it when I viewed it on youtube and the video on qvc, but it's a preference as to if you want to buy it or not.
I have been doing Tae Bo for 15 yrs now, and must say this is a pretty decent workout. I gave it four stars because the gloves are poorly made and don't fit properly. Other than that, I definitely feel the burn!!!
If this is your first time...great!
I am not new to the Billy Blanks workout so I was expecting a more intense routine. I was disappointed; the bands are not as tight as the black bands so I did not get the same resistance. I like the 30 minute time frame, but the Ultimate Boot Camp DVD is more intense. This is a great purchase if you are new to exercising.
Good Work out, I had 1 dvd not working but qvc replaced.
