Tink, first off--I am curious to know which Taebo workout you picked up at the store? I am a HUGE Billy Blanks fan....I was introduced to his workout system way back when VHS was the main media source LOL. To answer your questions/concerns, form is more important than the speed of the move. Don't rush to try to mimic the group's speed. It's OK to pause and rewind and watch the move before attempting it. Taebo uses every muscle in your body, even when your punching--your core is working hard. Yes, you will feel more coordinated (in reference to your I can dance and everything comment) after completing the workout a few more times.
Don't be upset that you don't kick as high as people in the video. After all Shelly, his daughter, has been doing Taebo with him since she was 2!! Just focus on what you can do--Billy even says that....modify the move. You will build up your strength and endurance etc.
I love Tae Bo and do it at least 3 days a week. I have done it for a long time and still can't kick as high as people on the video. You really have to modify for your level and work up. There are some of the older beginner Tae Bo workouts on You Tube. 2022 days ago
Tink I think as time goes on you get better at the moves. As you gain strength they become easier. I think thats why I love Leslie Sansone and Richard Simmons because I have an easier time following them. I don't always feel the need to be hard core challenged as with some of the DVD's out there. 2022 days ago
