I"m glad you say there is no additional strain on the knees - that is a big concern for me. Tried Tae Bo a few years ago and sold on E-bay cause I lost interest. These resistance bands look interesting although, I've read another workout that has the resistance bands like this (Core Transformer: 3D 1000 Calorie Burn Kit ) the resistance bands had lost thier tautness.
Thanks for your feedback.

Hi,
I am also 200+ lbs with endurance. I ordered this in early Aug and received the package last week. So now I am 6 days into after starting on Sunday. I haven't measured my weight change or other measurements as yet. I am not counting on miracle weight loss, but the workouts include cardio and resistance training so there should be some benefit there.
Have you done Tae bo before? I have for the past several months and I find that that the resistance bands definitely add to the workouts and I can feel added power, especially in my arms.
Are you wondering whether to go with the 24/7 due to results or versus other workouts? I can update my progress or give you more details of the 24/7 program if you like, let me know. As to whether the program can be done by someone over 200 lbs with endurance, definitely. You may not be able to keep up 100% at first but can build progress as you advance.
As to the knees, a lot of the moves involve standing in squatting position and the kicking requires you to keep your weight on one leg. If this is a problem for you than the 24/7 may not be good. It is no different in this respect from other Tae Bo workouts so if you have done them OK before the 24/7 does not seem to add additional strain to the knees.
Best of luck with your journey!

Hi - This is the newest one but wondering of anyong has used it and what was your success!

Looks very interseting...gloves and bands that give lots of resistance. I'm over 200 lbs - not the greatest knees but good endurance level - Thoughts/Feedback? emoticon
