One of the things you will get it tae bo – a unique fitness program that you will fall in love with! In this article, learn all about it as well as what you can do to create your own tae bo 30 minutes workout.

What is tae bo and how did it come to be?

As we mentioned, tae bo is a fitness and workout program that has become quite popular in recent years. Tae kwon do and karate expert Billy Blanks created it in 1976 by combining the elements of tae kwon do and boxing (hence the name) with other fitness routines. All of this is followed by high-energy music that is bound to get your blood pumping.

Tae bo takes its inspiration from boxing and tae kwon do.

He started teaching this multi-disciplinary study in his teaching classes in Boston in 1982. Seven years later, in 1989, Billy Blanks moved his training center to California. This is where the movement started getting some steam, especially with celebrities. In the following decade, celebrities such as Paula Abdul started incorporating tae bo with their workout programs. This lead to even more popularity for the movement, especially to similar programs like you would do with a kickboxing personal trainer Dubai.

Now, a huge portion of tae bo teaching materials consists of videos through which Billy Blanks gained his fame. Today, he tours the country teaching his workouts. Both civilians and the military often partake in these classes. He also does motivational speaking and writing, so you can say that he has gained a lot of success.

A thing that you need to remember is that tae bo is not a combat discipline – even though the name suggests it. This is important to note when you realize some of its signature moves are from karate. What you should use it is fitness and toning. There are no throws and ground moves here!

There are many benefits to including a tae bo 30 minutes workout into your routine

The question on your mind might be what you will get from practicing tae bo. How efficient and good for you it actually is? Well, there are many fitness instructor Dubai who do it with their clients. If it was not as good, then they would probably either be out of their jobs or not even teaching it. What’s more, the mere popularity of the practice shows that there is something to it.

Tae bo is influenced by hip-hop.

However, if you want to get into the medicine of it, then know that it is thought of as an amazing cardiovascular workout. This is because it combines sports movements with hip-hop dance, ballet, and weight training into one perfect mix. Due to these, it can also help you with toning and defining your body’s muscles. It boosts your flexibility and coordination too.

Many fans even say that you do not need other exercises for a routine! They claim that tae bo is a complete and independent workout. However, cross-training is always a good idea, and we strongly encourage you to follow it.

Creating your perfect tae bo 30 minutes workout routine

So now that you know a bit more about it, let’s talk about how you can create your own tae bo 30 minutes workout routine. First, know that an hour-long workout will burn around 500 t0 800 calories. When you compare this to a conventional aerobic class, which burns up to 300 to 400 calories, the difference is clear. But this also means you will need to prepare for it better! The main recommendation to follow is to take tae bo slowly. The best is to start with a 30-minute routine three times per week. Then, you can add more routines or longer workouts. However, many recommend you take a day off for rest during the week.

Make sure you always plan a day off so you do not overexert yourself.

When starting, you might want to either get one of the over 150 tae bo videos and DVDs currently on the market, visit the Tae Bo Nationy website, or look for it on YouTube. There are three categories of videos to look through – Instructional, Basic, and Advanced. Of course, if you are starting with the program, then go with the Instructional category, and move from there. The thing you need to make sure of is that you are completely safe performing each move you see. Only when you are completely comfortable with your skill level should you move to the next one.

More advanced tae bo workouts

There are just a couple more things that you should be aware of. First, a lot of Advanced workouts use tae bo bands (or Billy Bands). These serve to increase the resistance, but you can perform the routines without the bands too. If you opt to use them, though, they will increase the challenge dramatically. A good idea would be to alternate between using them and not doing so until you want to get a bit more ambitious and ready.

The final thing to note is that you should always think about your safety. If you are thinking about adding tae bo 30 minutes workout to your routine, then make sure you talk to your Dubai personal trainer. They will guide you through the process and ensure you are doing the best exercises you can!
