This is not to say that I don’t do other workouts or workouts with weights – I do.
But kickboxing – mostly Taebo and Turbo Jam – is the mainstay of my fitness routine. And, hey, they have weight training routines, too!
You can imagine my joy at receiving two Taebo Live workouts for Christmas. These workouts have so much energy, so much fun, great music. They are OOP but I am trying to collect them secondhand – and found two on Amazon sellers to go under the Christmas tree.
So the last few days these have been my workouts. And Turbo Jam Punch Kick Jam today.
I love the endorphin rush. I feel high while kicking and punching and doing floorwork to “My Sherona.” Killer ab work seems easier when singing along with Berlin’s ” On the Metro.” Or keeping on going, yelling and singing, to burning butt work with “Boogie Fever” or “Momma Said Knock You Out.”
Taebo in particular has all the three components of fitness – cardio work, strength or resistance training and flexibility.
Last Christmas I received the book “The Taebo Way” as a present – it is also OOP but we got it secondhand.
On the way in the mail is another OOP fitness book – FIRM for Life – I love the old FIRM Classics and Crosstrainer workouts. Want to read the book. Sometimes older is better.
I also have all the old Jane Fonda workout books. 🙂
It looks like fun – and has a great quote from actress Hilary Swank.
Swank trained at Gleason’s Gym for the film Million Dollar Baby.
