I am a Zumba instructor and love to try other intense cardio workouts.
In this article you will find my review of Turbo Fire as well as information on where you can get it and other Beachbody fitness programs for a great price.
I first saw Turbo Fire on an Infomercial one night while flipping through channels. What drew me into watching the whole commercial were the dance music hits and the fun moves that went along with them. The moves also looked like they were mixed with cardio and resistance training. This was a huge plus in my book.
In the beginning, you definitely have to go slow in order to learn the moves since they can go pretty fast.
This program is great in that there is a ‘New to Class’ option that is like a tutorial for some of the moves.
When you start the actual workouts, you just jump in and go. There is no stretching exercise at first; only a brief warm up. This is the same for my Zumba classes and I love how my heart gets pumping right away. I feel as though I am definitely getting a better workout.
Turbo Fire is a combination of kickboxing and dance moves which is what makes it so much fun.
If you have done Zumba before, this program is like Zumba on steroids. It is a lot more intense and will get you a lot more toned than just having a regular cardio workout.
The HIIT classes that Turbo provides are like intense fat burning workouts. And the best part is that you get 3 DVDs filled with these great little workouts.
There are also 2 Fire EZ classes. These classes are not as intense, but they hold their place in the program still offering a good part to the fitness routine.
With all the intense classes that come with Turbo Fire, Chalene (the fitness guru of TF) definitely did not forget the stretching classes. Stretching is essential after warming up the muscles, and Turbo gives you a nice 40 minute routine, as well as a 10 minute stretch included with each workout.
For those of you who have never done HIIT classes before, this program comes equipped with a prep schedule in order to get your prepared for these workouts.
I found the toning classes to be some of the best I have taken yet. Chalene definitely favors push-ups, and her push up routines will definitely get your upper body in shape.
The kickboxing includes jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, round-house and push kicks, pump its, zigzags and many other forms.
There are also a couple new moves named after this product, as well as other new combinations and variations of older ones.
There is a good amount of plyometrics (jumping) so it’s best to make sure that your knees are in pretty good shape before getting heavily involved in this program.
The music that is chosen for this workout set is great. There are a lot of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and modern dance hits all included. You will get songs like “Push It”, “Bad Girls” and “Proud Mary”. You will also hear great performing artists like Donna Summer, Flo Rida, Tina Turner, and lots more.
Where To Get It At A Good Price.
As you can probably tell from my review of Turbo Fire, the program is absolutely great. The only thing that was a turn off for me was the price.
The good thing was that I was able to get the entire workout at Amazon for a really great price. Even better, the program came with some other cool stuff.
Although this program is on the more expensive side for fitness DVDs, it is definitely worth it. I have never been in better shape.
