March 26 is my start date for the 90 day Beach Body challenge. I'm so excited to finally do something for myself that I can do from home! I have no money for gym memberships, yoga classes or appointments with a personal trainer. I'm hoping to have the same results as members featured on the website. <BR> <BR> I've been with SP for a long time, having lost 40 lbs since joining, but never attaining my goal weight or my goal body shape. I hope ChaLean and BB can help me.

There are a number of overseas companies offering P90X quite a bit cheaper than Beachbody sells it for.

(I'm a day late b/c I was pondering a challenge). What I came up with is called "miles, minutes and motivation." The goal is to do 50 miles, 2,000 (or 3,000 for over achievers) fitness minutes and work on the thing you have the most trouble with.

Mon, 14 Jun 2010 11:53:54 EST Who bought TurboFire, or are you planning to? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x16902x34791118 I finally made my purchase late Saturday. Couldn't make up my mind, so I finally decided on The Complete System. I don't know if I'll start it right away, as I'd really like to finish up my ChaLEAN Extreme, actually start over since I had to quit in April to work on the house. So, I can't decide, but I will be doing something that's for sure!

It is what got me completely back into shape after having my baby. I'm addicted. For anyone who is interested, they are actually having an instructor certification in Toronto on May 31st. This doesn’t become available in Canada very often, so it’s a great opportunity to learn about Turbo Jam and get your certification to teach others or become better at it yourself and be able to access other Turbo Jam workout DVDs. I am alre... Mon, 20 Apr 2009 07:54:46 EST New here, not new to turbo jam http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x16902x24079682 Hi I'm new here, but this is my second time losing weight with turbo jam. The first time i went from over 230 pounds to 200 in just a few months. Even for that i weight i had a flat tummy, and i felt so toned. I decided to have another baby and i got up to 260 pounds. I have started doing turbo jam again off and on, but its hard for me to find the time. I'm now 216..but i am going to try my hardest to fit more turbo jam into my life. If anyone is looking for buddies feel free to add me!
