Tae Bo

High-intensity cardio-boxing aerobic exercise routine.

Tae Bo is an aerobic exercise routine developed by Tae Kwon Do practitioner Billy Blanks, and one of the first cardio-boxing programs to enjoy commercial success. Such programs use the motions of martial arts at a rapid pace designed to promote fitness.

TAE BO is an acronym for Total Awareness Excellence Body Obedience. Blanks developed the routine in 1989 by combining music with training exercises to develop an intensive workout regimen. Many Tae Bo videos have been sold, and Tae Bo classes are taught worldwide. Tae Bo includes much of the same punches and kicks as karate does, but is not intended for fighting—it was not meant for any combat or self-defense applications. There are no throws, grappling moves, or ground fighting techniques in Tae Bo. Its only intent is to increase health through movement.

The high-intensity workout has been shown to increase cardio fitness, strength, muscular endurance and flexibility. Working all of their major muscles, participants of Tae Bo are challenged physically and mentally.

Tae Bo throws aerobic exercises in the mix as well, strengthening all muscles of the body with basic choreography. The exercises led by Billy Blanks are 55 minutes long.
