At the 2015 IHRSA Show my GymValet booth was only 10 feet away from a Group Ex demo. area. Therefore, I was lucky enough to both be on duty and watch Billy Blanks, Mr. Tae Bo, in action. Billy hit the fitness industry with a significant “upper cut” in 1998 with the release of his first Tae Bo workout video–remember when Tae Bo was all the rage–with those knock-out infomercials? Today, 17 years later, Billy hasn’t lost a step and can really draw a crowd–and for good reason! His Tae Bo workouts are easy to follow–albeit very “invigorating” to do, his cueing is good, and he’s there to teach, not to get his own workout! His “on-stage” personality is electric! Couldn’t resist getting some video of Billy leading the way. I loved when he got I the face of the participants and challenged them to move bigger and better! That’s great teahing. Enjoy the video and, if you are so moved, step back from your computer and bust a few moves with Billy!! Extra bonus…I had the chance to chat with Billy after the workout and get a picture. Fun to rub shoulders with “fitness industry history!”
