You'll love it! I do NOT like jumping and I usually will follow the modifier when I think it's too much for me. I do some of the jumps some of the time cos I like to get my heart rate up there. You should listen to your body, anyway :)

I haven't started TurboFire but have been watching the discs (I had some that were scratched). They do have a lower impact modifier that you can follow.

The awesome thing about Chalene Johnson's workouts are that she always has someone doing a modified version of the exercises. There is alot of jumping in Turbo Fire but there is also a person on the workout who is doing everything without jumping. I occasionally follow that person just to catch up with the workout!
You can check out videos on youtube of Turbo Fire workouts if you wanted to check it out. The person modifying is ususally on on the right side of the screen. Good luck!

I've been seeing a lot of talk about the CLX and Turbo Fire hybrid and I'm curious. I'm doing CLX now for the second time (well, the first time I only made through week one of the Lean Phase before life got in the way) and have been eyeing Turbo Fire even before I knew there was a hybrid program. My hesitation in buying it is because I don't know if it'll be too hard on my knees. I have terrible knees and daily pain after injuring both of them years ago, so I try to avoid too much high impact stuff. Is there a way to modify the Turbo Fire workouts to eliminate jumping, or would I be better off not wasting my money on it?
