Tae Bo is a high impact exercise that can improve muscle tone, speed, strength, balance, flexibility and mental awareness. According to Billy Blanks, creator of Tae Bo, results can be seen even after the very first workout.
Tae Bo was created in Billy Blanks' basement, and the first video was released in 1998. According to Natalie Greer of Vanderbilt University, Tae Bo involves a high level of aerobic movements and provides great cardiovascular results. The workout mixes together boxing and martial arts movements with energizing music. Greer states that one hour of Tae Bo can burn up to 800 calories.
