This review is from: Billy Blanks' Tae Bo: The Ultimate Collection [DVD] (DVD)
If you are new to Tae Bo then you will find this a very good selection of the Tae Bo workouts already available. Tae Bo is a fun, brilliant way to get fit and lose weight.
However, if you already own Tae BO DVD's beware that this contains the previously released Tae Bo 4 (Abs + Glutes), Tae Bo 5 Active, Get Ripped and Tae Bo Energise and nothing new!! Another point: Tae Bo 5 and Tae Bo Energise are the same DVD - just with different titles! Energise does contain an 8min workout not found on Tae Bo 5 but the basic and advanced sections are the same.
I gave this 3 stars based on the fact it doesn't contain new workouts (though I do realise it isn't advertised as 'new') but the workouts that are in this pack are excellent! You get a variety of 30 min basic and 1 hr advanced classes as well as 8 min workouts and instructional classes. Good value for money and a great way to get in shape but only if you don't already own the DVD's in the pack!

I love Tae Bo and have really enjoyed building up my level. I was delighted with this ultimate collection - until I found that Energise and Tae Bo Active were one and the same! A bit of a rip-off, and now I need to look for another DVD to keep my repertoire varied. Anyway, the exercises are fun and Billy's energy is great, and the intensity of the workouts depends on how you feel as you are doing it - fantastic!

Admittedly the duplication is a bit of a bummer but realistically you are still getting 5 workouts on four discs. Let's face it, you will wear out the basic and advanced workouts through continous use so it's handy to have a second copy. But, yeah, point taken.
