Tae Bo for Total Body Fitness


Tae Bo is a workout system that came to prominence in the 1990s. Although workout fads come and go over the years, that doesn’t mean that their effectiveness wanes with their popularity. It’s a natural instinct to eventually get burnt out on a workout plan. So if you’re currently feeling burnt out, it may be time to switch things up. If you’re into martial arts, or even just kung fu movies, Tae Bo may be a good choice for you.

What is Tae Bo?

Tae Bo fits into a category of fitness workouts known as “cardio-boxing.” Essentially it uses a combination of martial arts techniques done at speed to burn calories and build muscle. The name tae bo is a combination of the words “tae kwan do” and “boxing.” As you can guess, these are the two main traditions from which tae bo draws its inspiration. Additionally, Tae Bo is an acronym which describes the central philosophy of the workout style:

  • Total commitment to whatever you do
  • Awareness of yourself and the world
  • Excellence, the truest goal in anything you do
  • Body as a force for total change
  • Obedience to your will and your true desire for change

Where to do Tae Bo

Tae Bo classes and derivative versions of Tae Bo training methods are taught at some gyms. But perhaps the easiest way to do Tae Bo is to purchase one of the exercise videos. These are widely available online. If you follow the Tae Bo workout method and are disciplined, you’ll see results. The only way to truly know if it’s right for you is to give it a shot!
