I have BeachBody on Demand and have used some of their programs in the past. Sadly, upon getting my new job and current life situation, I have not worked out in months so I will admit to being a little nervous about jumping in. I love working out though, so I do enjoy a good challenge. Here's the scoop: Military spouse wanting to impress her deployed husband when he gets back next year.

I GAINED 2 lbs during the first week - now THAT is not funny at all! I accidently did Fire 45 instead of Fire 45 EZ and burned 900 calories in that single session. I have also eaten very clean, oh boy, I was so proud of myself. <BR> When I stepped on the scale I thought I was dreaming. How the heck did I gain weight? I burned at least 1,600 calories the last week. <BR> Did anyone of you make a similar experience? I know it's not go... Mon, 10 Feb 2014 01:54:22 EST February 2014 Challenge!

Mon, 3 Feb 2014 22:19:37 EST Introduction Hey guys!! <BR> <BR> I am doing a TurboFire/Chalean Extreme Hybrid I downloaded from the main beachbody site. I have done both of them before and Chalene Johnson is really enjoyable and motivating. <BR> <BR> Sat, 28 Sep 2013 01:09:43 EST Starting Turbofire June 2013 I am back and ready to conquer this weight demon. I love the turbo fire workouts so I'm off and running. would anyone else care to start with me? <BR> Wed, 12 Jun 2013 12:20:08 EST Going to attempt the inferno! Hi my name is STephanie and I am starting the 5 day Inferno today. I love Turbo Fire but want a jumpstart. I need to lose about 50 pounds so i figured this was the best way to boost my motivation! I am a mom of 2 wonderful children and my husband works 7 days a week on a ranch, so I don't have much help with the kids. I can work out either at 4:30am, on my lunch hour (I have a 40 hour work week outside of the home) or after work at 6pm. Lately i have picked working out at my lunch hour, a... Mon, 20 May 2013 13:00:20 EST TurboFire Schedule with Firestarter I messed up laminating my schedule this morning, so I am scouring the web trying to find a copy of the TurboFire Schedule. My schedule started on Day 1 with Firestarter and ended on week 20 with a rest day. Does anyone know where I can find a copy of this schedule so I can print it out again and try my hand at laminating it again? <BR> Wed, 24 Apr 2013 10:19:28 EST TurboFire Workout Schdule I have TurboFire and TurboFire Advanced DVDs. I was disappointed to find out that the workout schedule in TurboFire is not correct, as I did not receive Lower 20 and Upper 20 with the Advanced Workout DVDS. <BR> <BR> My question is do you follow the TurboFire Workout schedule or do you create your own? Fri, 12 Apr 2013 10:22:14 EST For Pregnancy My Doc told me to stop Turbo Fire! I told her I would compromise by avoiding the jumps and following Ailee (Spelling?). She said I could continue as long as I keep my HR below 140 and no bouncing or jarring. However I found something that really made me day. Tips from Chalene for pregnancy! :) <BR><BR>Tc&feature=share Tue, 26 Mar 2013 16:02:33 EST Motivation & Support Thread! I thought it would be nice to have a thread for us to motivate and support one another while doing the TurboFire Schedule. It does not matter where you are in the schedule just post how you are feeling about your workout for the day, challenges you may feeling and of course to brag about what is going real good so we can celebrate with you about it!!!

Sat, 9 Mar 2013 17:18:25 EST TF Week One! Who Is With Me?! I just started TF last Monday. I was looking for someone to discuss everything with. How they are feeling, how they stay motivated, what to do about a sweet tooth, if the follow Chalene's exact schedule? Pretty much a buddy to scratch my back as I will do in return.. It seems it has been a while since a topic has been posted about week one. So, my name is Brittany. I am 21 years old, have 2 children, a husband, 2 dogs. I am a daycare provider and go to school part time for nursing. I find tha... Fri, 8 Mar 2013 10:02:02 EST Tracking TurboFire So yesterday, I did the Firestarter wrorkout and Stretch 10. I logged Firestarter as 37 minutes of cardio. I marked the stretch after cardio box. <BR> <BR> Today, I did the Low HIIT 20 Class and the Stretch 10 class, so today I would just track 18 minutes cardio. I marked the stretch after cardio box. <BR> <BR> I am using the Aerobics/low Impact in the fitness tracker. <BR> <BR> is this consistent with how the rest of you are tracking turbofire? Tue, 5 Mar 2013 17:25:00 EST New to TurboFire-not losing weight yet :-( Hello Team, I absolutely love spark people, whenever I find myself trying a new program, I can always count on my spark people family to already have a team. Thank you for creating!! RHEYNKLAW, thank you for the welcome note. <BR> <BR> I'm on my third week of TF, but was concerned because I've only lost 2.5 lbs! I'm 5'7, currently weight 169 and was consuming 1200 calories give or take. I've been doing some research and it seems that I should increase my intake to 1500 for this intensiv... Fri, 1 Mar 2013 16:59:51 EST Help...! I just found out I'm pregnant and I have been doing a lot of research. About half of my research concluded that I can continue any workout that I was doing before I became pregnant (Started Turbo Jam a year and a half ago and turbo fire for the last year) and the other half suggested I avoid any jarring or bouncing type of exercise. Don't know what is right and I don't have my first ob appt for two weeks. Just to be on the safe side I have been following Ally (spelling?). I love the jumping ... Sat, 23 Feb 2013 05:55:04 EST TurboFire /TurboJam My friend had recommended TurboFire to me, and loaned me one of the 20 minute HIIT workouts. I was a little intimidated so she recommended Turbo Jam. I am doing the learn and burn workout and the 20 minute workout currently. I still feel a little uncoordinated, and while I like Chalene Johnson - I don't think she's the best at cuing :) has anyone else had this experience, and does it get better? I am trying to get through TurboJam so I can work my way up to TurboFire. Sun, 17 Feb 2013 20:29:14 EST February Challenge <em>26</em> <em>26</em> I thought this month's challenge should have something to do with our hearts!

It was tough. I am super uncoordinated, and I didn't get all the moves right, but I fished. Today, I can definitely feel it in my abs/obliques. I plan on continuing with TurboFire and alternating it with other workout DVDs and my recumbent bike. If it takes me six years to get the moves right, so be it!

Sun, 21 Oct 2012 22:45:59 EST Hi everyone My name is Leslie. I am a Chalene Johnson workout JUNKIE. I love it all! I have lost all of my weight using Beachbody products, Turbo Fire, Turbo Jam, Chalean Extreme, etc. I drink Shakeology everyday. <BR> <BR> My current goal is to tone up and gain muscle. I am currently doing CLX/TF Hybrid and love it! Tue, 16 Oct 2012 13:15:38 EST Week 9 check-in for 8/13 start 9 weeks down! <BR> <BR> I am really missing Push. Lean is just OK so far. I do like the compound moves, and that we're doing /different/ things, but Push was just so wonderfully intense, and I really did, uh, PUSH myself all the time. <BR> <BR> Glad to be back to HIIT, though.

I hope everyone finished out the Cardio phase (and Push, for those also doing CLX) feeling stronger and better conditioned for those long workouts. I'm looking forward to getting back to HIIT, and have been enjoying adding in other cardio videos (especially Rockin' Body) now that I'm not swamped with schoolwork. Mon, 8 Oct 2012 11:50:01 EST Week 7 check-in for 8/13 start How was everyone's week 7? I'm finally feeling IT again after being totally off from illness last week, though I substituted Zumba and Rockin' Body for a few of the TF videos because I was starting to notice a little boredom creeping in, and I didn't want it to go any further -- I love my TF too much to not want to WANT to do it! <BR> <BR> Loving lifting heavy, especially when I pick up smaller weights and they just feel way too light.

As usual, it started great, but Thursday night, I couldn't do a burpee without having to stop to catch the stream of snot dripping out of my nose.

I have a quick question for all of you Turbo Junkies........ <BR> <BR> I did the Inferno plan in week 4 (I didn't do it when I first got it as I was still nursing my baby) but had some pretty decent results. I am curious if anyone has done it more than once? I am in week 8 and was thinking of trying it again in the next recovery week (after all the HIIT workouts) but I wasn't sure if anyone has done the plan more than once?

Sun, 16 Sep 2012 23:16:01 EST 5 Day Inferno + Vegetarian Hey guys - I am wrapping up Turbo Fire tomorrow (90 days!) and want to start the 5 day inferno next week prior to doing the advanced DVDs. So the meal plan is not too veg friendly. Any one modify it to make it vegetarian? I am thinking of these swaps - steak/salmon/chicken = tofu/tempeh/beans and just watching calories overall. <BR> Thanks!

I hope everyone is starting to feel comfortable with the routine, adjusting to intensity and hard work being the new normal, and, most importantly, HAVING FUN. <BR> <BR> My personal goal for the upcoming weeks (or at least until I am satisfied that it has become habit) is to look at the screen only when facing forward. I know the choreography by now, so there is no point to watching it all the time, and it will benefit my form. <BR> <BR... Mon, 10 Sep 2012 00:30:57 EST Just starting out! So today marks day one of Turbo Fire!! I decided to start with the prep. So here is how day one went. It was rough I will not lie, but it was fun. I did have some trouble keeping up, I was spending a lot of time making sure my form was right. This is important for making sure you get the max benefits from the program. I agree it makes a difference. You change your movement and alignment just a little and everything feels very different but in a good way. I know that I will get faster with tim... Sat, 8 Sep 2012 22:35:39 EST What do you do on the "rest" days? I just started the program yesterday, and I was wondering what everyone does on the rest day. Do you just rest or still stay active that day? <BR> I was thinking of doing some of the stretching exercises that day to stay limber. Wed, 5 Sep 2012 09:51:16 EST September Challenge So with summer coming to an end I thought it may be fitting for us to try to get some exercise outside instead of inside all the time. I know where I live in Arizona the weather is getting cooler and outside activities are more fun now. So the challenge for this month is to do some sort of exercise outside 2 times per week. Tue, 4 Sep 2012 23:53:22 EST Week 3 check-in for 8/13 start Hello, Turbo team! How did everyone do this week? <BR> <BR> My personal goal for the current round of TurboFire is to learn to love 45 EZ. Having done it twice this past week and not been too miserable, I think I am on my way. I am enjoying doing CLX along with the TF workouts, though figuring out how to fit the extra sessions into my schedule is an ongoing process. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to this, the final week of HIIT 1.

I am looking to drop 35lbs and tone my body. I love to exercise but struggle on a daily basis with diet.

So my question is this I would like to keep going but I don't want to spend the money on the advance package right now and I am not ready to go into the hybrid program right this second so does any one have any suggestions? Tue, 17 Jul 2012 15:19:08 EST Time vs Intensity I found this article on MSN today and thought it was interesting. <BR> <BR> Q.I know that working out is supposed to improve my cholesterol. But is there a difference between a walk around the block and a fast run? Does how hard I exercise matter? <BR> A. Exercise is good for you -- there’s no doubt about that. But the specific health benefits you incur depend on the type, amount and intensity of exercise that you do. One big question still up for debate is how hard must your workouts be to ...

Thu, 14 Jun 2012 19:04:02 EST NSVs I have wanted to open this discussion up for a long time, since stagnant weight seems to be the most common complaint about TurboFire. <BR> <BR> For many of us, taking up TurboFire and other exercise programs is the means to a weight-loss end. Because we start with the mindset that we want to drop pounds, it can be frustrating not to see the number on the scale change, even when we are working out consistently and eating consciously. <BR> <em>39</em> <BR> At this point, rather than give u...

Fri, 1 Jun 2012 16:00:23 EST Losing Inches not pounds I am really trying not to get discouraged but I have not lost a single pound in a while but I am droping inches like no tomorrow. In two weeks I have a lost about another 1 and 1/2 in my stomach I have about 4-5 inches to go around my belly button area to be in good shape. The only thing I can think of is that b/c I did Chalean Extreme program that I built up a ton of muscle and I am lossing fat. Is anyone else having this problem? Thu, 24 May 2012 09:44:22 EST Newbie to turbo fire, shakeology & sparkpeople Hi. I get my turbo fire in the mail tomorrow. I'm excited to try it. I'm hoping I can stick to it and see results. I have a few inches to lose but not really weight to lose. I also hope to have more energy. I also am getting shakeology samples to try to see which kind I like.

Tue, 1 May 2012 10:55:23 EST Hey all! Just wanted to introduce myself. I am Michelle and I started Turbofire and Spark People last Monday. I made it through the first week of workouts and will start my second week this morning. I just gotta say, so far I love it.

I'm looking for some new gear -- sports bras that don't need adjusting after plyo intervals (*if you know what I mean*), cute pants for short legs, tops that don't ride up or get floppy around the bottom. In an ideal world, my closet would be overflowing with lulu, but I cringe at the thought of dropping that kind of cash. I've had so-so luck with Lucy.

Thu, 5 Apr 2012 13:43:37 EST April 2012 Challenge I've been putting some serious thought into the challenge for April, and I was stuck because it seems like everything fitness-related is what the TurboFire program already entails: six workouts a week, plenty of fuel for your fire, and lots and lots of good ol' H2O. <BR> <BR> Terrie's March challenge was a call not only to stick with Turbo, but also to bring some energy back to this team by interacting with other members. The past few weeks have found me reaching out to others and doing my ...

I know you love the music in TurboFire as much as I do -- I find myself singing to myself throughout the day, after I've worked out! <BR> <BR> What workout music motivates you to keep MOVING? (From TF and otherwise.) <BR> <BR> A few of my favorites are It's Like That (Run DMC) and Dazzey Duks (Duice -- even though the spelling makes me cringe!) from Fire 55 EZ, and OF COURSE Parliament's Give Up the Funk from Fire 30.

Let me know if anyone is interested. I was getting a little bored with just TurboFire alone. I think I needed something to shake it up for my body. Again let me know if anyone is interested in doing this with me. Keep on Turboing! Thu, 15 Mar 2012 20:13:01 EST TurboFire Newbbie Hi! My name is Sharita and I just received my TurboFire Thursday and started yesterday. Today (Day 2) I did the HIIT 15 and if i may say the anearobic workout is TOUGH! It was hard trying to catch my breathe but not be so far behind with class but i pushed myself to finish. My question is how do I add the Turbofire on here to my fitnaess tracker so I can see how many calories I'm burning and what not. Tue, 6 Mar 2012 23:28:02 EST Strong trumps skinny. Can't believe I've stuck with TF for 2 weeks!! I just keep pushing play, and it doesn't feel like work. Love it :) <BR> -3.6 lbs so far! Sun, 4 Mar 2012 17:48:28 EST Best shoes for... Hi, everyone. As I've gotten more active over the years, my obsession with footwear has grown to include gym shoes. What are you wearing these days, and do you use certain shoes for specific workouts, TF classes and otherwise? Or, the opposite: would you recommend /against/ a particular shoe for any reason? <BR> <BR> There are very few brands that I feel loyal to, and Puma is one of them.

I am 3 1/2 weeks into Turbo Fire and I have not lost any weight. I've been losing 1 1-.5 pounds a week, consistently, and I'm down 73 total. But as soon as I started Turbo Fire my weight loss came to a total halt (I haven't lost any inches either). I thought the workouts were too short, so after doing a Turbo Fire DVD I'll do an extra workout of Jillian or something else with weights and cardio. <BR> <BR> My diet is the same - I eat about 1250 calories a day. <BR> <BR> I'm so discouraged! ...

I'm really excited to be apart of this group. thank ya'll Thu, 19 May 2011 11:43:47 EST General feedback/ questions and challenges If you have feedback or questions, feel free to post that here! I will also use this space to create some team challenges for everyone. Fri, 8 Apr 2011 13:34:04 EST Inferno Plan Are you following the plan? What is your take on it? Please give feedback to assist others who may be considering it. <BR> <BR> I have not tried the plan yet but am considering it. I've heard mixed reviews. I've heard complaints about people being hungry a lot and about how difficult the workout's are. The general feeling I get is that people either follow the eating plan or workout plan but have a hard time following both. Fri, 8 Apr 2011 13:32:18 EST Chat Area!
