Hi friends and welcome!

Sounds like some great goals! emoticon I agree as we age the weight can be more stubborn. Metabolism seems to like to slow down on us.

Join us on the thread what work out are you doing today ? It’s the most active thread and we like to encourage one another daily emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone!
So excited to find an active Beachbody group here! My name is Melanie, I'll be 42 next month and I've been a dedicated Turbo Jam user since 2005! I also use Turbo Fire and recently purchased ChaLean Extreme. I've been up and down in weight (probably about 15 lbs.) over the years and I am finding it harder to lose weight as I get older, but Chalene's workouts definitely help! I stray from them from time to time, whether I fall off the fitness wagon completely, or if I try something different, but eventually I always navigate back to her workouts.
I have a goal set for myself to lose 16 lbs by June 14th, which equals about a pound per week. That will put me at my weight when I was in my late 20's! I have not seen that number since then but I know I can do it!
Glad to meet everyone here! :)

Hi,

I signed up for Beachbody on Demand in June 2019. I didn't log in and do any workouts until last week! But last week I started with the 21 Day Fix. I am on Day 5 today and understanding how simple these workouts are to stick to. They don't feel overwhelming and I'm really enjoying the positive aches and pains in my muscles! They are working!! I've been struggling with my weight forever but my most recent struggle began in May 2017. I had finally lost all my excess weight and made my personal goal in March of 2016 and kept most of it off until it slowly crept back up in 2017. By May I had gained it all back! I remember throwing out my "fat" clothes and saying, this is it, I am never gaining this weight back again. But I slowly watched the scale creep up and up and up and then reach the top. It was so depressing and I let it happen. I watched it go up and didn't do anything about it. After 3 years of going up and down between 10 lbs. I am now determined to lose that weight again! I am going to FL in March and using that as my main goal. I bought 3 new swimsuits to try on and keep me motivated as I go through this journey again.

My immediate goal is to lose 25 lbs, but my ultimate goal is to lose 35 lbs.

I am going to turn 39 in one month. And as they say, as you age it gets harder to lose weight. Do you find this true?

Thanks for reading my story!

Good morning,

Just joined this group today. I have been a Beachbody on demand subscriber for a couple of years now. I'm not consistent at all and that is totally on me. I did try Shakeology but found it was way too costly.

I'm a working mom with 2 teen girls and 1 young adult man, happily married to my best friend.



Have a great Day

Hi friend and emoticon To the team!
I see you are a Beachbody fan as I am! You are doing great! emoticon
I have never tried shakeology...it is crazy high priced. Too many other good choices out there now that is far easier on the wallet .
I am a night time snacker...or was. I would do great throughout the day and undo it with pigging out after dinner. I decided awhile back to give IF a try. I eat between the hours of 11-7 and no excuses. It has ended my night time snacking. ;). It took a bit to get used to. But now it is my norm.
I also use fitness pal for logging my food. I find it so much easier than here at spark. Just my preference. I also find it gives me far less calorie burn for my exercising which I think is a hard truth. emoticon
Right now my left hand is in a huge cast from a car accident Leaving me unable to do certain workouts. Doing my best at bbl and cize. So calories and IF have really been a focus. I’ve actually dropped 4 pounds...sure some of it is muscle ;(. But still has to be some fat ;)
Just have to find what works for you and then work it. And of course change it as we learn
Have a great day! emoticon

Hello!
I'm Jessica. I'm starting PiYO. Today will be day three. I've dabbled in many Beach body programs. My first program was Turbo Jam. I have since then collected Body Beast, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, Les Mills Pump, Turbo Fire, Core de Force, Rockin Body, 20 Minute Hard Core and most recently PiYo. I have also used Chalene's strength training workout, but the name is evading me. Is it Chalene Extreme?? So, I'm no stranger to Beach Body. I have not used Shakeology simply because I cannot afford it. I have used similar protein and meal replacement powders from Garden of Life which I liked.
I have a huge problem with emotional eating. To be completely honest I have an addiction to food. That is why even though I have my own home gym and all health and fitness resources at my fingertips, I'm still overweight. I'm still trying to change my mindset about food. Progress is coming slowly but surely. Enough about me.
I'd love to know about you!!

Good morning Bobbie Jo! It sounds like you are doing great!
I find when I do P90x or chalene extreme that I may not be losing any weight but my body is changing. Getting stronger..more definition. I also am more hungry. Much more! I especially know this as of recent. I have an injury that prevents me from doing these types of workouts. So I’ve been sticking to cardio and counting calories. Trying to stay on the lower end. I find Im Not as hungry ...I guess not trying to rebuild my muscles from those tough routines. The scale has gone down over 4 pounds in 3 weeks. No doubt some muscle. I’ve been using BBL and cize..all modified with this cast
Not sure how helpful this may be. ;).

Hi Cindy thank you for welcoming me to the team. I love Chalene too. I use to do the Turbo Jam workouts but I wasn't losing weight while doing them. I have been working out with my elliptical and Cize or Country Heat sometimes. I don't lose weight unless I do the elliptical. I will have to check out the other threads. Sorry I haven't responded until now. I was wondering if anyone else is using Cize or Country Heat and if anyone is losing weight by using those exercises. I also have bought colored containers and I have the eating plan for 21 day fix and the logging book and the Fixate 2 cookbook. I find if I follow the 21 day fix plan I don't eat enough calorie wise and the eating plan that comes with the Cize dvds say to add more colored containers if you aren't eating enough calories. Does anyone else find that if they eat the 21 day fix they aren't eating enough calories?

Hi Bobbie and emoticon To the team! So happy you have joined! Happy early birthday! I just turned 53 in June ;). I love chalene! She is a motivator! Insanity is a tough one , I have to monitor and adjust certain moves so I don’t get hurt or aggravate a prior injury.

Check out the threads and join in! We have an active thread about which workout you did today...come join in ;)

Hi, my name is Bobbie Jo and I will be 53 years old on October 24th. I have the older beachbody programs and one newer one. I have Turbo Jam that I love and Hip Hop Abs, Slim in 6, Power 90, insanity minus one dvd. The newest one I have is Beachbody's Country Heat. The insanity one is too hard for me to do. I use the Country Heat and Turbo Jam sometimes. I think Turbo Fire would be too hard on my knees. I sprung one knee and ankle years ago and I can't do the jumping around that is in some dvds.

Thank you all for the welcome!

I’m Amy from Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m 42 and a mom of 3 daughters. Two of them are severely disabled, so I am so thankful to companies like Beachbody who create quality at home workout programs.

I’ve unfortunately lost and gained weight more times than I can count. I feel like now, though, as a grandmother now, playing yo-yo with my weight and health needs to be behind me.

I have done many Beachbody programs, and I have the t shirts lol. I’ve done PiYo, P90X, P90X3, ChaLEAN Extreme, and TurboFire. Currently I am not in a program, but I am debating the next program... I do other work at home DVDs and am currently loving Cathe Friedrich. Anyway, happy to be here 🤗

Hi Guys!

I have ~79 lbs to lose, and want to lose ~35 lbs before November end (Have a vacation planned to Egypt).
I'd be doing a hybrid of P90X and LIIFT4. Do let me know if anyone here is doing either of the programs :D Would love some accountability!

Hey,
I'm Stefanie and have just started the TurboFire Prep schedule. Did the Fire 30 last week once just to check if I can keep up. That did not go too well, even with the "new to class" option. I got lost all the time and could not keep up with the choeography - and I used to be a Ballroom Dancer so I do not have two left feet!
That was kinda frustrating but I am not a quitter so I pressed "play" again yesterday and (who would have guessed) was able to keep up 95% of the time. I love the fire drills, even if they make me feel like I am about to die! Jumping, however, is an issue due to my stressed Achilles' tendons - so I modify here and there.
Today is stretch 40 (did that too, last week) and I am really looking forward to it - feels so good!

Thanks for sharing, Crystal! I feel privileged that you are willing to be so open with us.

With your athletic background, I think you will LOVE TurboFire, and pick it up fast.

What is your undergrad degree in? I considered continuing my education with an MPH, but stopped after my B.S. in Health and Wellness. Please feel free to share anything you come across in your studies that you think would make interesting conversation!

Hello my name is Crystal. I am a 22 yr old graduate student on my way to receive my Masters in Public Health. My mother has described me as being a moose baby (yes, I know) and I had always been taller and bigger than the rest of the kids. I have played sports my whole life and in highschool i was 5'8" and 185lbs. I was solid muscle due to being a thrower (discus & shotput) and I played volleyball. I lifted weights and did plyometrics almost every day, nut ate whatever I wanted.

After highschool I lost 20lbs due to moving away from home and just generally being too broke to eat like I was before. I have since gained back about 5lbs (due to my curves coming in) and I have filled out nicely in those areas we appreciate, but I still have that little pooch on the bottom of my stomach.

In college I continued to weight lift and do cardio, but never seriously or consistently. After finishing my first yr of grad school I have decided that I want to be serious about my health. I barely worked out this pst yr and constantly was tired and stressed. I am getting older and I know it will be harder to look even better (let alone keep this body) as I get older.

My goal is to compete in a bikini competition and maybe later do some fitness modeling on the side. I know I write a lot, but this is the first time I have ever shared any of this with anyone. I am so excited to start this real journey with you ladies.

Hi Alia! Welcome to the team! TurboFire is really amazing! If you have any questions about anything just post them and we will answer as soon as we can!

5 pounds per month sounds doable and I love your attitude about the scale! I personally like to go by inches more than the number on the scale!

Hi all! My name is Alia and I'm located in British Columbia Canada - A little town in the Rockies called Cranbrook. I love it here! My husband and I both love the outdoors and this is really the perfect place for an outdoorsy lifestyle!

My goals currently are to loose 5lbs/month for the next two months. Ideally I would like to hit 125lbs but I'm not narrow minded where the scale is concerned. As long as I'm toned, fit and healthy, that's really what I'm looking for.

I am still pretty new to TurboFire, only being in my second week of my challenge. However, this is a lifestyle commitment I've been looking for and so far I'm loving it! I love the support, the intensity - really everything. I'm really looking forward to my own transformation as well as the opportunity to help others live a healthier happier lifestyle!

Hi Penny!! Welcome to the team!!! That is great you are not focusing on the big number and breaking it into smaller increments. I follow Allee a lot because I get pain in my arches. I have lost 40 pounds so far with TurboFire. I have about 40 more to go. I am giving a vegan diet a try...well not a complete vegan diet. We are going to still eat a little chicken and turkey meat about once per week. I will get back to you on how that goes...starting Monday! If you need anything please post in here or you can even send me a message and I will get back to you real soon. I hope you have an amazing day!

Ok, so my name is Penny emoticon I turn 40 this year (in October) and am in my 5th week at Spark People. I tried Spark People about 4 years ago with little success but that was due mainly to the fact that I didn't really join in any teams and didn't track my food, etc. I have taken a different approach this time and jumped in with both feet and started making healthy choices and so far, it's paid off.
I spent the first 4 weeks taking part in one of Spark People's boot camp challenges which helped a lot in making exercise a habit for me. So I have been exercising 4-5 days a week for the past 5 weeks.

I bought Turbo Fire quite a while ago..probably about this time last year and I did it for the first 3 weeks. It kicked my butt! But I liked it...and as with most things, I let things interfere and gave up before getting ever really getting started. I still use some of the workouts in the program as my workouts now, just because I like them. I love Turbo Jam...but I am ready to take it up a notch....I have a lot of weight to lose. My first goal is 50 pounds and I have another 50 after that (and then just a little more emoticon )
I am currently at 253 and would like to get down to 145 (or whatever a healthy weight is for me)
I don't care about losing weight fast...that's why I broke up the weight loss into increments...and I am not obsessed with the scale. I figure losing weight will be the natural result of healthy habits.
BUT....I will need help and encouragement. Turbo Fire will be a big undertaking for me. I do the modified version because I have a trick ankle that likes to give out at odd moments if I jump on it but it doesn't stop me from doing the workouts....so I am ready to go but I will need help.
Any pointers, buddies, direction and guidance is appreciated.
I am actually off to work out now! Check in later.

Hey there TurboFire Team! My name is Amy. I'm 24 years old and SICK of being the "fat girl"! I started Jillian Michaels Body Revolution back in January, but I quickly got bored with the workouts so I'm starting TurboFire now. My plan was to start with week 1 yesterday, but unfortunately I got a pretty bad upper respiratory infection over the weekend, so I'm postponing the TurboFire 90 day challenge until next week, though that doesn't mean I'm not working out! I decided to just stick to the FireStarter class this week and take it slow. Because of the infection I get winded easily right now and keep coughing a lot, so I've been doing 20 minutes of workout, then taking a break to catch my breath and get some water, then finishing the last 20 minutes. I signed up the for the Beach Body challenge and I'm excited to see my results after the 90 days. I'm not expecting the finish this program with perfect abs and a perfect body, I'm starting off the program at 210 lbs., but I'm hoping for some pretty awesome results.
I'm a nurse and I work overnights at my hospital, so it's tough for me to get out during the day when gyms are open and the sun is out to do my workouts, so I'm happy I could find a program I can do at home without having to spend a ton of money.

Is there anyone out there who started this program at the same weight I am at and got significant results? It's a little discouraging seeing people starting the program already at a small size then finishing the 90 days with perfect abs and bodies.

Thanks Rheyn and Terrie! Ya Rheyn, I think my life's about to go a lot more back to the "daily grind" kind of stuff you were talking about. Honestly, it's that way here most of the time too. I still have pretty day-to-day, unexciting routine a lot of the time here :) I guess that's just life? haha

That's emoticon Annie! Also, I meant to say before that your work sounds really interesting and fulfilling. My heart really would like to be able to do something like that, but there isn't really any room in my lifestyle for it right now. If I had my late teens and early 20s to do over again, I would take the opportunity then, when I had a little more freedom and significantly fewer "daily grind" kind of obligations. (That's not to say, however, that I don't think we all have an enduring obligation to do good in the world!)

Thanks Rheyn! The way you're doing it sounds fun with so much variety! Would love to do something like that eventually.

Well I actually did start doing the 12 Week program a few weeks back to be able to keep up with doing the dvds in a good order. My schedule gets a little crazy sometimes though because I've been traveling this past week. I've still gotten to do other things outside like go for a run or go hiking a couple days, but it's not really good for sticking to a scheduled workout routine. I'm also moving back to the U.S. in June and going to be traveling more before that so I think things will go about the same way during that time....doing the dvds on the days it's possible, but if not, at least trying to exercise some other way.

When I get back this summer, I'd also really like to start running again too, so maybe mix that in with TurboFire as well. We'll see how it goes....I hope to do a full round of it at some point this year! For now, I just love the dvds. The more I do them, the more I feel myself improving and I already feel my endurance and strength getting so much better just in about a month's time.

Welcome, Annie! I'm glad you found us, because it sounds like you could really use some like-minded buddies.

What do you think of Turbo Fire so far? Do you plan to keep up they way you've been doing it, or are you going to tackle the 12- (or 20) week program eventually? (Either is great, of course!)

I "dabbled" at first, and after a few months, did the 12-week. Late last summer, I did the 20, adding in ChaLEAN Extreme for the first three months. Now I'm doing the 12 again, using CLX instead of the TF strength videos, subbing some of the longer workouts with Turbo Kick rounds (I bought a big pack when I did my teacher training in January) and Hip Hop Hustle (another Chalene format), and adding in PiYo (yet another Chalene!) for more core and flexibility. Of all the times I've done TF, this is my favorite because there's the most variety.

So, as you can see, there isn't any right or wrong way to do Turbo Fire, as long as you're making fitness a priority in your life, and having a blast doing it!

Hi everyone,

I just joined SP today...I've been reading articles of the website over the last couple weeks and it looked like a really great way to connect with other people who are trying to lose way and just live healthier in general.

Just to tell you a bit about myself: I got the TurboFire DVDs this past Christmas and have been doing them fairly regularly since, but more a mixture of using the dvds maybe 4-5 days a week and doing other exercise on other days. I'm currently living in India til the end of May, volunteering at a children's home here, so being able to do workouts from my computer at night in my room has been a great way for me to still get exercise and try to get more in shape.

I'm excited actually to find so many people on here that are honest about their fitness journeys and struggles...it's just been in this last year (I guess starting last summer) that I've really made the decision that I want to change my life health-wise, but I really don't have much support around me at all, which has definitely made it really hard and probably made the process slower. My family and a lot of my friends seem to encourage more unhealthy eating than healthy and I struggle to find people that ever want to work out with me, so I'm hoping to be able to connect with some of you on here :)

Thanks!
-Annie

I can definitely understand not wanting to workout when the kids are around. I also like to be home alone when I do my workouts.. otherwise I just want to hang out :)

Yes, that is a good idea about the thread to check in with the workouts! Gonna try it!

That is fantastic. I do not really go by the scale either. Measurements are a great way to track your results.

You are going to rock week 2! I started week 2 on Friday. I did it that way so I could have Sundays off from my workouts so I can spend time with my hubby & kids. I hate working out when they are around. They don't make fun of me or anything but it just takes time away from them and NASCAR is back on so I like to watch the races with them.

We should make a new thread for checking in with our TurboFire workouts!!

I lost 2 inches off my body after this TF inferno week! Didn't weigh myself though because our scale is broken and I really am never impressed with scale measurements :)

I will definitely remember to eat something just before workouts. Thanks for the tip!!
Went for a snowshoe hike today and Monday gonna start with week 2 of Month 1 in my 20week TF challenge!!!

I make sure I eat a little something before my workouts especially the 45, 55 & 60 minute ones. I am glad you stopped instead of pushing through it! You can do it and GREAT results are in your future!!!

First emoticon to the team! I know you can do it. I have set a time to exercise and nothing gets in the way of it. I find it so much better to do my workouts before anything else so I do not use any excuses to get out of it. Figuring out the time of day you are more likely to stick with it is really the key. I have a reminder on my phone and it dings at me when it is 5 minutes til workout time so I can get ready to go for it!

The first time I went through TurboFire I lost 40 pounds and now I am working on the last 40. I am on day 6 of my TurboFire Schedule.

If you need anything please just ask! We are here to support you on your journey!!

Welcome to the team, and thanks for joining us!

That's a big goal, but Turbo will whip you into shape, lol. I know what you mean about stopping and starting and just not being able to get through. When I have teammates and other "accountability buddies" doing a program at the same time is when I'm most successful, so please check in with us whenever you think of it, because we're here to cheer you on!

Hello,

I have for almost 2 years now tried to complete the TF challenge. I always end up giving up because work gets in the way / I go on vacation / get sick, and then I ever get back into it. This time I decided that I really want to succeed! I think sharing my goals and being part of a group that can encourage each other will help me do it!!

My goal is to lose 25 lbs. But more importantly, to FINISH the 20 week TF challenge!! I am starting with the Inferno plan and continuing from there.

So far I've done the first 2 days! They are hard... but once you're doing it, so great!!

Welcome, Mallory! I think you will LOVE TurboFire. Chalene is super upbeat and motivating, and the large, diverse cast creates more of a live class atmosphere than most other videos I've done.

Hi all! I'm on my last week of Insanity and the next workout I'm planning to tackle is TurboFire! I've never done a Chalene workout but I'm really looking forward to it :) I'm planning on starting on Monday morning (the 25th), since Insanity will be done over the weekend. I'm really excited for a change of programs at this point and hope that TF will help me get to where I want to be weight-wise!

Have a good day everyone!

Hey all! This is my second round with TF! I did it a few years ago and went from a size 16 (post-baby) to a size 4 in about 6 months of eating low-carb, running and doing TF. I am now 10 weeks postpartum with my second child and wearing a size 14 and 171 lbs. I'm hoping to get back down to a size 6 and/or about 130 lbs before summer.

I'm starting this week with the 5-day program, and then I'll continue with TF on its recommended schedule along with a low-carb diet of 1200-1500 calories a day.

After this I hope to be in shape enough to do Insanity. I also have the brazillian butt lift to hopefully put my butt cheeks back where they were before I had kids! LOL

Good luck all, stick with it! It really works if you can force yourself to stay with it!

Hello everyone! My name is Len. I am happy to join the TurboFire team.

I am going to be starting my first week tomorrow and I am so excited. The routines look fun and energetic which is something I need to jump start my weight loss. I know I am going to have to push myself to put out 100% and I look forward to the challenge!

It's a pleasure to meet everyone~!

I got fantastic results with CLX and TF together. I didn't do the hybrid, exactly: I did both programs together, and omitted just the TF sculpt and tone videos and sometimes Burn It Off from CLX. Give it a try!

Hello! I haven't been on Sparkpeople for awhile but really wanted some feedback. I LOVE TurboFire but found myself going back to my Firm videos to get more toning. I'm 37 so cardio alone doesn't do it for me anymore. I love Chalene so I just purchased CLX hoping that a hybrid of the two will get me the results I want. I should also say that I haven't done ALL of the TF videos, just the longer ones. Has anyone had good results follwing TF by the schedule only OR doing a TF/CLX hybrid?

Welcome to the team! You are doing SOMETHING, and that's more than a lot of people ever do. Whether you think of it as finding time or making time, the reality is that there is only so much of it every day to do everything you want and need, but it sounds like you are figuring out how to make it work, which is a mental, strategic "workout" all its own.

Hi all. I am a wife and mom of 2 sweet, and time consuming children. :)

I am starting TurboFire again. The first time I did turbofire was after my first child. I lost about 30 lbs in a few short months. Then I got pregnant and decided I didn't need to workout anymore, oops. SO I gained it all back plus some fun pregnancy weight. My daughter is 8 months old now and I am getting back to working out. Tonight, after the kids go to bed is the only time I have to workout, will be day number 5. It is hard for me to follow the schedule cause I don't have a lot of time between putting my baby to bed and putting my 3 year old to bed to workout and I am afraid if I wait til after he goes to bed I won't do it. So the last 4 days have been switching between the Fire 30 and the HITT 15 videos. I know I need to follow the schedule, so thats my new goal.

I don't want to lose the fat, I have no intention of finding it. I want to get rid of it.

Good for you for trying something new -- and I'm so glad that new thing is TurboFire! I have 30DS, too, and like it much better as an occasional squeeze-something-in-fast workout than a month-long program. There are enough different videos in TF that you will be able to do it for several weeks without getting tired of it, but the truth is that unless it really does turn out to be what Chalene calls your "soul-mate workout," the boredom will eventually creep in. That's normally when I take a little break from Turbo because I don't want to get completely disgusted with it -- I ultimately love it too much for that, lol!

ANYWAY, welcome to the team, and don't be shy about voicing your questions or concerns with the program. Terrie and I have both gone through it a few times, she's studying to be a personal trainer, and I have a background in group fitness and a health science degree, so we will hopefully be able to help you with anything you need.

HI! I just wanted to say hello, and introduce myself to all my future cheerleaders! LOL Im a mom of 3 crazy awesome midgets and am newly engaged! I have never put a lot of thought into my weight or lifestyle until just recently (when my clothes stopped fitting, and my fiance was starting to creep past 240lbs) So I joined SP back in Novemeber and have done great at getting my eating where it should be (I was a non eater, which I have found out is just as bad as over eating) and I started to get moving again!

I have yet to find something physical that doesnt feel like work... I tried the 30 day shred, which was awesome until about day 17 and then it just got monotonous on me and the fun ended. I read someone's blog on here about TurboFire and it intrigued me! I figured I love getting moving with our Wii Just Dance Games, Im sure this could be fun too?!?!? Ill give it a shot LOL So I have borrowed the program from a friend who isnt using it anymore and I am willing to give it a shot... actually im excited to give it a shot!

Im a little worried about the coordination as well (Thats why Zumba and I are not friends LOL) But Im sure as long as Im moving my body in the general fashion everyone else is, I do not need to be perfect!

Here is to day one.... Weeeeeeee!

WOW, those are amazing results! Finding the right balance between maxing out, and dialing back the intensity so you don't get hurt can be one of the more difficult aspects of figuring out how to lead a fit and healthy life, so good luck to you, and don't be shy about sharing your secrets.

Rhey and sassy, What's up ladies. It's nice to see you still around helping us newbies :)
I came on a few months back in oct right after I ordered TF. I have a bad back from some accidents when it was younger, because of them I couldn't ever finish a whole month without getting REALLY hurt and being laid up for a week.. Or 23 dys once. BUT I keep getting back on the horse. This time I made it 6 WEEKS before I injured myself lol.. But it's been 3 days and I think I can do a STretch 40 tomorrow and ease myself back in.. In the One month I was hitting it hard I lost 4.7 pounds and I lost 7 .5 inches total... That's ALLOT more fat loss then 4 pounds and I couldn't be more happy.. I am going to rejoin my spark friends here everyday and continue this life I've made for myself. I don't see Turbo fire as a 90 day program ; TF is just my vehicle to another life.. Don't fix what isn't broken right?? I'll talk to you wonderful chics tomorrow!! Ohhhh and HAPPY HOLIDAYS XOXO

Welcome to the team, Jean! TurboFire really got me "fired up" about exercise again after a break, and I hope it will do the same for you.

Hello my name is Jean and I'm going to start TurboFire after the new year. My wonderful BF purchased the set for me for Christmas and gave it to me early! I recently gained back most of the weight I lost 2 years ago. Needless to say this has been a huge blow to my motivation. I've been trying to lose weight for about 9 mo but I've haven't been able to stay on track with exercise and diet for more than 2-3 weeks. I've done Turbo Jam and really like the style of class. I'm very excited to try TurboFire because I think it will be the intensity I need to drop pounds which will motivate me to keep going with my weight loss goals. I hope that this team will contribute to motivation as well!

Welcome to the team, Kirstin. Prepping by going to the gym regularly is a great idea! Looking forward to hearing what you think about TF once you get it.

Hello everyone,

I'm Kirstin, 37 and live in St. Louis, MO. I just ordered TurboFire tonight so I'm hoping to get in the routine of at least hitting the gym 6 days a week to get used to the schedule while awaiting the package arrival.

I'm not a very experienced exerciser and I'm very sporatic - I'm aiming to change that.

I want to become comfortable with myself again so I'm not sure what weight or size that will be but I'm focusing on just eating well and moving more.

Thanks,
!K

emoticon to our little team! I am so excited for you getting the TurboFire program. I did the Inferno and if I remember right it is just Fire 55 EZ. I went through New to Class a couple of times but after that I was good to go. I was fairly familiar with kick boxing because I used to do Tae-Bo! I think you will be fine! I like doing the Inferno plan but that is just me.

Wow you have had an amazing transformation! emoticon

I haven't done Inferno either time I've started the program, so I don't know whether it would be useful for you to do. I get the impression that it's a weight loss kick-start, but based on what I see on your SparkPage -- that you are already quite accomplished in this respect, and an experienced exerciser -- it does not really seem like it would do much for you. Also, don't worry about your coordination -- you will get it soon enough!

Hi Everyone!! I just received my TurboFire yesterday!! I am nervous that I won't be cordinated enough but I am going to give it my best, I was going to start right away today, but now I am thinking of taking the rest of the week to watch the first dvds a few times and "practice" some of the moves and starting on Monday!! Do you recommend starting with the inferno or just start right away?

Welcome! You are very much in the right place if you do, indeed, want some butt-kicking friends. Terrie kicks mine every day, lol.

emoticon to the team! I am on week 6 of the TF 20 week schedule! Eating enough is really key especially with high intensity workouts. I try to eat every few hours to keep my energy levels up because I am doing TurboFire and ChaLean Extreme right now.

I cannot wait to hear about your success! If you need anything please just ask! We all want you to succeed!

Hey. Just wanted to introduce myself emoticon
I started using SparkPeople a few weeks ago and I'm still looking for some new friends to support eachother and sometimes kick eachother from the computer to work out. emoticon I'm finishing university and starting "real life" soon and part of it is to start it healthy and fit.
One of my goals is to finish Turbo Fire 20 weeks workout plan. I tried to do this once before but wasn't giving enough attention to nutrition. That resulted in anemia and me fainting in aerobics class (I was doing TurboFire every day and taking aerobics class twice per week). So this time I'm really trying to work on fueling my fire. emoticon I actually haven't started the 90 days program, I planed to start it on 1st October. But I'm still working out - I'm doing cardio workouts (cycling, hiking) and I'm doing TurboFire at least 3 times per week. I hope this time around I'll be able to finish all 20 weeks.

Thanks Rheyn and Terrie for the feedback! After hearing both of you tell me to make up the classes missed, I woke up super early and finished my classes for today. I too changed up my rest day to Sunday (from day 1), so worst case scenario I may miss one day but I will make it up for sure! Wish me luck and I'll probably check back in to say hi on Tuesday. Until then, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Evelyn~I adjust my schedule every week because I like to have Sundays off to spend time with my family. I do the Sunday workout on Wednesdays. Whenever I go out of town to my parents I do my workouts in advance so I end doubling up during the week so I can just relax at my parents house. My husband and kids have told me I am an over achiever tho :)

Welcome to the team, Evelyn! It's great to have a new member.

When I do programs on my own, I usually don't adhere strictly to the calendar, but do do the workouts in order. So, for instance, if the Monday-Friday schedule said Cardio 1, Cardio 2, Weights 1, Cardio 1, Weights 2, but I took a break Thursday-Sunday, I would do the fourth and fifth workouts on Monday and Tuesday of the following week. The program would take a little longer to complete because of extra days off, but I would still get in all the classes.

The exception was when I did Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, because the workouts were tiered, and each new set of videos was repeated for two weeks. So, if I missed doing one workout once, I just moved on because I would still complete it several other times.

However, there is a group of us doing TF together right now, so I am taking the schedule week by week. If I miss, say, a Tuesday workout, I make sure to have it done by Sunday, along with the rest of what is on the schedule, so I have a fresh start the next week. Doing a program with others really, REALLY helps me stay motivated to keep on top of my workouts because I DREAD the possibility of having to do two looong videos in one day!

I think just do what feels best, but if you miss any HIIT workouts, do try to make them up, because the high intensity, anaerobic component will really challenge you cardiovascularly and improve your endurance in a very short period of time (in terms of both workout length, and how soon you'll notice a difference.)

Hello everyone. My name is Evelyn. I finish week 2 of Turbo fire today. I'm following the regular 12 week program. I quit smoking a month ago and packed on 10 lbs EASY within 2 weeks of kicking the habit. Luckily turbo fire has helped me already melt those pounds off. :) I've been really committed to the program so far and am loving the intensity. YES! I am NOT tired! lol. I am going on a weekend cruise tomorrow and return Monday. I am really worried about how this cruise is going to affect my progress. I will be unable to do the videos on the cruise but plan on hitting the gym on the ship. What do you guys do when you miss a video? Do you make it up? Do you keep going?

No sense in burning yourself out before you ever get off the ground, so starting with the prep is a good idea. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Thank you both for the warm welcome!

Sassy, you make perfect sense...I was definitely taking in too little, especially on my HIIT days. I was probably tricking my body into starvation mode. This time around I will know better.

Rheyn, I think I'll start with the prep schedule at least until I feel ready to go harder -- don't want to burn out, even if it is turbo fire! emoticon

I'm worth it.
