Billy Blanks

Billy Blanks

In the late 1980s, Blanks invented the TaeBo® workout, while running a karate studio in Quincy, Massachusetts using components of his martial arts and boxing training. The name TaeBo® is a portmanteau of Tae Kwon Do and boxing. Blanks opened a fitness center in Los Angeles to teach his new workout and later attracted some celebrity clients such as Paula Abdul and the popularity of the workout quickly grew, becoming a pop culture phenomenon after Blanks began releasing mass-marketed videos. The popularity of the workout later waned, but Blanks still attracts many celebrity clients and TaeBo® videos and DVDs have continued to sell well.
