Turbo Jam - Or, could I BE any more uncoordinated???

Friday, February 19, 2010

Okay...I did Turbo Jam tonight for the first time (the Learn & Burn segment). I did it after my Power 90 workout, so my upper body muscles in particular were a bit weak before I even started....but the bottom line is that this is going to be really fun. Assuming I can get the steps.

I'm glad Chalene put the 'Learn' segment into the Learn & Burn. I will do that bit again the next couple of times I do this workout, just to make sure I am doing the steps correctly with good form. On more than a couple of occasions, my hands and feet were not really going the same direction as Chalene's - thank goodness no one except the dogs is watching me do this...and that dogs can't laugh. Because this has to be the most hilarious thing I've done in front of them - EVER.

I really like Chalene though - she's a good instructor. And I can tell the workout is a good one. Even after Learn and Burn, I was sweating! And it's not even that long!

I wonder if ChaLEAN Extreme requires this much coordination...or if it is more just hard core workout. Either way, I bet I would like CE.

I'm sure I will get these steps eventually. I just have to keep trying and it will eventually come. And I suspect that the results will be good.

So many good little time. One thing is for sure though - these Beachbody videos will keep me busy for a while. And they really are very good.

    That is one thing that I just don't get into. I'm glad you are finding some that you really enjoy.

    Love TJ and all Beachbody dvd's. Ce is pretty intense but she takes you through slow and easy.
    I agree so many Beachbody programs so little time.

    I don't recall if I ever did the Learn and Burn, I just went right to it. I got the moves pretty easy. It's so fun! Her energy keeps you going, that's why I like to put it in on days when I really don't feel like working out. After a few minutes with TJ I am energized and ready for it.

    Love me my Turbo Jam! I'm addicted to doing Cardio Party Mix 2. And please know, I am more uncoordinated that any other human being alive, so if I can get it, anyone can. And I do mean ANYONE! Keep it up, and you'll get it in no time.

    Keep up the Turbo Jam! The moves will come in time and once you're comfortable with them you can really get into the music and the moves. I started Turbo Jam just over four years ago and have lost over 80 pounds with it as my main cardio. I wan't even able to finish the learn & burn my first time through so you're already doing better than me. Now I'm saving up money to become an instructor!

    Chalene IS great. Good instructor and all around great gal. I've been taking classes from her for over 15 years now and it never gets old or boring!

    Be sure to go to to get all the latest and greatest and if you're planning on buying, sign up for her text messages. She has text-only sales! Last weekend all videos were 50% off but only to her text buddies. Don't worry, she only texts once a month (if that) so you won't get bombarded with spam or anything.

    You can also become a FAN of Chalene on Facebook. Her personal page is filled up (exceeded the max # of friends) so you can only befriend her on her FAN PAGE now.

    Good luck on the TURBO! Keep it up and PUMP IT!!!

    What kind of stuff do you do on the Turbo Jam?

    I have the turbo jam dvds and use them all the time. Lets just say I close the blinds and lock all the doors so no one sees me because I most look like a fool because I can never get the steps, and when I do its never in synch with her. I don't care it kind of makes me laugh. My husband and I both did it together and I think I got a better workout just laughing at him because both of us are uncoordinated. But I do love the dvds, she makes it fun and entertaining.

    funny I feel the same way when I do the exercise DVD's. I am not coordinated at all, some times I'm just standing there(in a daze), I just start making up my own moves, as long as I'm moving...right, at least that's what I tell myself.

    The power90 and Turbo Jam looks very hard.
