When I was in college, I would do Tae Bo a lot. I had two VHS tapes. Out of curiosity, I jumped on Youtube to see if the videos were there, and they were! Obviously the quality is not great, but by golly I would recognize that music anywhere! Here are the videos, just in case today is a cross training day for you... HAHA!
I remember that I really wanted to look like his daughter, Shellie. She was beautiful and extremely lean (which I aspired to be back then!). I remember ogling her in her brown shorts/sports bra combo and wondering that if I did Tae Bo enough, I would I look like her too!?
A quick Google search informed me Shellie is still super ripped!!
Are you wondering why I am feeling all nostalgic about Tae Bo today? Well, over the weekend, Paul started organizing the downstairs closet. He found these water weights I owned in college. They aren't weights to be used in water, they are weight that you filled with water!
See, just screw off the top, fill with water, and you magically have a 1-2 lb dumbbell!
I used these during Tae Bo workouts. They added a little more resistance for the punching and other arm movements.
The water weights are definitely the ODDEST fitness items I have ever owned! But I'm not judging myself. Tae Bo was a great workout, and I enjoyed punching with my water weights!
Alas, in an effort to organize and get rid of stuff, I threw out the water weights! We had a great time together, but I have moved on!
What's the ODDEST fitness item you have owned?
Were you ever into Tae Bo?
