It really is a great program. ChaLean Extreme is what made me realize that I did like working out, once I found the style that worked for me. You will be amazed at how strong you will get. I was never more motivated to workout then when I followed ChaLean Extreme.
“Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.” ~~ Dr. Suess
I actually typed this up for another team as someone was asking about it, so here's what ChaLEAN Extreme is about.
I'm not a coach, so I don't get anything if you buy it other than the satisfaction of knowing you WILL SEE RESULTS! How can I guarantee this? Well, when I started my first round in March '09 I lost so much in just three weeks that jeans I hadn't been able to wear I was wearing. I have yet to complete the full set, although I have done all three phases, but stopped mid-stream during the LEAN PHASE. Now that I've started back up, I've lost another pound, but I haven't taken my measurements. I stopped working out almost completely in November & December, and started approaching 120. Before I started back with CE, I did some other workouts to get my physical and strength endurance built back up, and am now starting the final week of BURN. It's like no other strength training program I've ever found.
You probably already know what it is, but it's ChaLEAN Extreme, and it's on sale now for $89.85. Now that may sound like a lot, but compared to what it was $130, it's a bargain. And you have 30 days to return it for a full refund (minus shipping and taxes). I doubt seriously that you will though.

Muscle Burns Fat Guidebook: Workout calendars show you which workout to do each day. You'll also get help deciding how much resistance to use.
Thigh Toner Band. Add extra resistance to your lower-body training.
Pro-Grade Resistance Band. Burn fat and tone muscle faster. (I use weights though, and you can find fairly inexpensive adjustable weights advancing in increments of 5lbs from 5-25 lbs at WalMart and Target)
Extreme Motivation Audio CD. Chalene's personal message to help get you pumped for your workouts.
And other things that I don't use like a Fat Burning Guide, although it is something good to go by, I just don't use the recipes.
If you have any questions about the workout, feel free to spark mail me. Or check out the ChaLEAN Extreme Team, which I happen to be a co-leader of, and just browse around. teams.sparkpeople.com/chaleanextreme
Most of us on the team use a weight lifting program called ChaLean Extreme. It is by Beachbody. The program involves weight lifting 3 days a week and cardio 2 days a week. Any weight lifting program will help you tone up as long as it works all of the muscle groups. ChaLean Extreme just makes it easy because it is all set up for you.
