    So, if anyone ends up trying Tae Bo, you should do the Instructional Tape first. It teaches you exactly how to punch and kick without hurting yourself. I wish I would have noticed it!

    The basic workout isn't that bad, but man, does that thing take a long time to do! I don't have that much time during the day to workout, so I use the 8 minute tape most of the time. It's very, very fast paced but it's a great workout and I have seen results.

    I'm too scared to try the advanced tape...

    The Walk Away the Pounds DVDs are the ones that I use and they work very well for you.

You may remember that she was on TV in Canada for quite a few years.
    I believe her products are still shipped out of Calgary, so you won't have a long wait for them either.
    I adore Charlene's videos! I wish they weren't so expensive; $20 each is a bit spendy, and they're extremely difficult to find used. I love the variety in steps she brings, the challenging (to the brain) footwork, and her energy level being inspirational without being over the top. She's wonderful.

    I also like Victoria Johnson, although I don't know if she's done anything recently.

    I watch excercise tapes for hours on end, and still never get anywhere (except when I get up to get more Doritos and Dr Pepper )

    I like the Walk Away the Pounds too - but Leslie can get a bit annoying - she's a bit of a rah-rah

    I love it when the instructor gets really close to the screen and screams at you to keep going. Billy Blanks does that alot, and it really does make speed up and pay more attention. I guess I don't want to disappoint a 10 year old VHS tape or something!!

    Re: Workout Videos that Work

    I have the Mare Winsor Pilates set , and Tony Littles Target Training (which have some great moves) but I'm tired of those.

    So, going to look for some cheap copies of:
    -Billy Blanks Tae Bo,
    -Charlene Pricketts,
    -Walk Away the Pounds,
    -Victoria Johnson,
    -Yoga Booty Ballet,

    Thanks everyone!

    And Newf: I just ate a bunch of Old Duth Hot Wings taco chips. Gotta work those off now.

    Walk Away the pounds worked for me. Lost 70lbs in about six months. I started with the 1 mile and worked my way up to the 4 mile. She was a little bit annoying so I would turn the volume down.

    Actually, I use her workouts, but don't even watch Leslie any more. There are so few steps, it's easy to just watch the TV and basically do her routine without putting the DVD on, .
