Fitness fads come and go, and Tae Bo has certainly lost a little popularity since the martial art/aerobics technique's heyday. Billy Blanks' program is not be the popularity machine it once was, but unlike most fly-by-night fitness crazes, Tae Bo is a proven winner. When combined with a decent diet, Blanks' methods can tone you and help you shed some extra weight. And you won't look like a total pussy while partaking, which is also nice.
