Thank you guys! I have to say, considering my inability to dance, I was tossing around the idea of buying the videos- going to an actual class is so out of the question for me! LOL. No one would be able to focus on the class- they'd all be laughing watching me flail around! :D My birthday is this Saturday- I think I'll order it as my birthday present, and if I don't like it- I have 30 days to return it. :)
Turbo Fire definitely IS intense- and I'm not quite THAT fit yet, so it'd be nice to have a day in there that I can sub out one of the crazy workouts for a fun one! :)

I went and took a look at the Turbo Fire. Looks fun, looks intense! I will tell you that there are probably some Zumba classes that will not make you burn like that, but then there are some that will. Just try a few out and decide if you want to do it.
I have read that 6 days cardio is what they are recommending now, so if you have rest days scheduled, go try it on those days and decide for yourself!

I just watched the video online for TurboFire. I've been doing Zumba at home since March and love it. But if I were to perfectly honest with you, it looks like you get a much more intense workout with Turbo. Zumba is alot of dance moves. It is definately fun to do and wouldn't hurt you, I'm just not sure how much you would get out of it. And if you can do Turbo, the moves for the most part with Zumba should come pretty easy to you. Good luck to you!

Hi everyone! I'm not sure if anyone can answer this question, but I'm a big beachbody fan. I'm doing turbo fire right now. After watching some of the videos, this looks like a much less intense workout program than what I'm currently doing. It looks like FUN, though, but I don't want to feel like I'm not getting a good enough workout. Does that make sense? I'd say, on a scale of 1-10 for Turbo Fire, I'm consistently working at at least a 7- how would Zumba fare in comparison to that? Should I get it and just do it on my rest days as a fun activity? I'm also very very VERY uncoordinated! :) So, I'm still trying to figure out if I'd do well with it at all anyway! Ha! :D
