Want to know more about Turbo Jam®? Here ya go!

The below info is from the Beachbody® Coach training manuals and website.   Scroll to the bottom for MY review.

Turbo Jam® is an in-home fitness program that combines kickboxing, dancing, and body sculpting moves to help you burn calories and tone muscles. Trainer Chalene Johnson teaches you her signature “Elite 11” moves, then uses them in a variety of ways to raise your heart rate and keep it elevated so you burn the most fat. The workouts are set to high-energy dance music that feels more like a party than exercise.

Why is Turbo Jam® effective? 
*Turbo Training is a technique that adds intensity to the workouts and increases the calorie burn. In the middle of each workout you do a short, supercharged cardio interval, which increases your aerobic capacity and is one of the most effective ways to burn fat and calories.

*Chalene’s signature moves are easy to follow. They target specific muscle groups or body parts to strengthen and sculpt your entire physique, with special emphasis on your abs and core. The workouts can be done by anyone at any fitness level.

*The Turbo Results step-by-step guidebook includes a simple weight-loss meal plan, a daily workout calendar, and a guide to help you make good choices when eating in restaurants.

*Elite 11 flash cards will show you how to perform each of Chalene’s signature moves so you can burn the most calories in every workout.

*Jump-start your weight loss with the Turbo Slim® rapid results program, an easy-to-follow meal plan and measurement tool to help you lose up to 10 pounds in 10 workouts.

*The Turbo Sculpting Gloves increase your muscle activity by up to 96% so you get toned fast.

What makes Turbo Jam® unique?
Turbo Jam® is a combination of martial arts-style training and dancing. Chalene’s fun, motivating personality makes the workouts upbeat and energetic. The addition of Turbos (high-intensity intervals) improves your fitness while increasing your calorie burn. And when you use the Turbo Sculpting Gloves, you can raise the intensity even higher.

Who is the target audience?
*Fitness beginners - The signature moves are easy to learn, and Chalene breaks them down for you.

*People who want to lose weight and get toned. Turbo Jam® burns maximum calories while sculpting lean muscles.

*Women who don’t want to build big muscles. The workouts are designed to lean out your body, not create bulky muscles.

*People who want to lose weight fast. The Turbo Slim® rapid results program helps you shed up to 10 pounds in 10 days.

*People who want fun workouts to keep from getting bored. The variety of workouts and Chalene’s enthusiasm will help you stick to the program and have fun with it.

Equipment needs

She’ll keep you from getting bored and inspire you to do your very best.

MY review:  
Turbo Jam® was the first program that I did through Beachbody. Yes, I was already a Turbo Kick® instructor so maybe I was (am) a little biased. ;) Anyway, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this program!!! It's a bit of a dance-y version of cardio-kickboxing and it's for any level of fitness. It is perfect for learning the moves if you are someone who has trouble with choreography. (In other words, you may want to start here and then go to TurboFire®.) It's less intense than TurboFire®, but you can make any program more intense by what you put into it - am I right? Oh, and Chalene's energy is contagious! The sculpting dvd's are no joke (especially the lower body one) and the weighted gloves make any of the workouts KILLER! I HIGHLY recommend this one!
