Tae Bo® Conference

 “Kick”-off Class

Stress can have a serious impact on your life and body. Have you ever wanted to learn how to manage your stress? Training the mind is the first step to training your body. The ANTSHE conference will help to train your mind, let me teach you how to train your body. 

Begin with a walk through correct posture, then learn some basic Tae Bo®, and wrap up the class with a brief discussion about the mental component of exercise and a post workout Q&A. 

What is Tae-Bo®?

Tae-Bo® is a unique and challenging fitness system. It is a hybrid of martial arts and aerobics that was created by Billy Blanks in 1975. Tae-Bo® is a combination of Tae Kwon Do, which involves boxing and dance disciplines, and a challenging program set to hip-hop music. A class is typically one-hour and consists of a series of jabs, punches, kicks and steps, choreographed in a series of eight-count combinations. The name, Tae-Bo®, is a combination of other words. "Tae" means "leg" in Korean and it relates to the kicks and lower body part of the workout. "Bo" comes from boxing and the upper body punches that are an integral part of the workout. Set to the upbeat music. Tae-Bo® engages the entire body.

Who can Participate?

Tae-Bo® is for anyone looking for a complete workout for the entire body. The Tae Bo® ANTSHE Conference “Kick Off” will introduce you to Tae-Bo®, show you basic steps, and how you can be successful at achieving your weight loss and health goals.  As with any new exercise program, you should consult your health care provider first before embarking on it. 

Because Tae-Bo® can be done at your own rate, you build strength, and gradually increase your level of physical fitness over time. This is also a great form of strength building, not to mention a lot of fun!

Results vary, but many people report feeling a change the very first time they do Tae-Bo®. Others report change over several weeks. It is important that you check with your physician to make sure you can start an intense workout program. Tae-Bo® is a program that can be done on a daily basis or a couple of times each week. For maximum results, Billy Blanks’ Enterprise recommends that you consider doing Tae-Bo® at least three times a week.

If you are a beginner, you are advised to start slow and build up your endurance over time. Although Tae-Bo® is challenging and requires use of your entire body, it is important to not get discouraged if you get tired quickly in the beginning, this is natural. The entire idea of Tae-Bo® is to maximize the benefits by incorporating the entire body into the workout.

Tae-Bo® is a trademark of Billy Blanks Enterprises. Classes are offered across the United States. Find an instructor who has completed the Billy Blanks Tae-Bo training course, but beware of copy-cat programs. There are many "sound-alike" programs that promise the complete workout, but the Billy Blanks organization says there is no substitute for the original program.

Join me at the 2016 ANTSHE Conference for the Tae-Bo® Conference “Kick Off”! It’s sure to be a lot of fun! I hope to see you then!
