Hey guys, thanks so much for the input, I truly do appreciate it! I decided to go with the Hybrid though because I honestly couldn't decide between the two. I liked the strength training in Chalean Extream and Turbo Fire is so far okay because I'm doing the modified versions of the exercises to make it "easier." The only thing I'm having problems with is during the transitions between the "moves." Hopefully with time this wont be a problem though.
Cheers and best wishes to you all :] I'll be sure to update (as soon as I get a scale)regularly.
It is totally up to you and what you want to do. I am currently doing ChaLEAN Extreme, but some days I do Turbo Fire on my strength training days. Why don't you pick one, and then if you are feeling up to it add in the other on occasion...that way you aren't committing yourself to doing both programs at the same time and don't feel like a failure if you can't keep up with both. Strength training is a great way to burn fat round the clock and shape your body, so my recommendation would be to do ChaLEAN and then add extra cardio from Turbo Fire a couple times a week, but again, do whatever you want to do and feel is right for you :D

I personally did a round of ChaLean Extreme, then a round of TurboFire. I physically couldn't have done TurboFire right off the bat. I felt like CLX built up my endurance to help me keep up in TurboFire. I got bored with the cardio in CLX & I didn't feel like the strength in Turbo was enough, so I am now doing a hybrid that I created on my own. Hopes this helps & good luck!
I must let go of what was so that God can bring me into what will be...
Never use the word 'diet' if you want lasting weight loss - it's about retraining our thinking & way of living!
I love motivating others to get active & live a healthier lifestyle - which in turn keeps me motivated!
Hi guys. New to the forums and I hope I get some advice. My friend recently loaned me her copy of Turbo Fire and Chalean Extreme because she just got those P90x and Insanity workout videos on Christmas. Well, after she gave me a wake up call to how unfit I really was (she made me do a P90x workout with her, and I barely made it through the warmup and a couple of exercises before becoming to winded and couldn't continue) I decided enough was enough. I can't believe that I've let myself get the way I am now. But, I'm over that and looking forward to getting healthier, which is my main motivation. That't not to say that getting fitter and looking good isn't a bonus of course.
Anyways, to whomever has these workout DVDs would you suggest jumping straight to the Hybrid workout schedule? My friend advised me that this would be the way to go for me, but I was wondering what the consensus says. Would you agree with my friend? Or would you suggest me doing one workout then the next?
p.s. I tried aa workout from each different programs and yeah, they are definitely challenging, but I can keep up more somewhat. No more making fun of Turbo Fire because that is definitely just not a girl workout.
p.p.s I truly hope someone responds back to me. No one on the Team Beachbody website message boards wrote back to give me advice..
