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.

CITIZENGO, a Spanish organisation has come under severe attacks in Nigeria.

Project Alert, a non-governmental organisation based in Abuja, Nigeria with offices in the 36 states of the federation, said on Tuesday, May 21, this year, police officers allegedly raided Marie Stopes Clinic in Lagos,

According to the NGO, health workers and patients were allegedly harassed, and at the end of the day, the officers took away files containing confidential information of clients.

This writer notes that Marie Stopes offers free and affordable family planning services to women and men, pregnancy tests, pre and post-natal care, treatment and services for sexually transmitted infections (STI), HIV testing and ultrasound and laboratory services.

However, Gabriel Akinremi, the chief information officer of CLEEN Foundation, AN ARM OF Project Alert, the staff of the clinic are trained offer counseling and treatment especially to those who cannot afford the costs at private hospitals.

His words: “To raid a centre that provides such services is sending a message to women and girls as well as men and boys that they are not safe in health centres and that they don’t deserve access to quality health services without fear or judgment”.

This is happening in a country that contributes 10% to the global burden of maternal deaths ranking fourth after Sierra Leone, Chad and the Central African Republic.

Safe spaces where women can access confidential and non-judgmental sexual and reproductive health services are vital and we don’t have enough of them to reduce the risk of maternal deaths.

Just before the raid in Lagos, the Minister of Health was testifying before the Nigerian Senate about the overburdened health system, the deplorable state of General Hospitals in the country and the need to revitalize the tertiary and primary health care system in Nigeria.

Women and girls are dying from preventable deaths because of lack of access to quality sexual and reproductive health services. Recently released NDHS 2018 data state: “Unmet need for family planning declined from 20% in 2008 to 16% in 2013 before increasing to 19% in 2018.”

Family planning is the conscious choice by people to limit or space the number of children they have through the use of contraception. And 19% of married women in Nigeria have an unmet need for family planning services, according to the survey.

Marie Stopes shouldn’t be punished for offering a spectrum of services, including family planning, to those who need and want it, especially women, married and unmarried.

The work being done by organizations like Marie Stopes is necessary to dispel myths, provide counseling on the right modern method of birth control and help women and men space their children.

The National Strategic Health Development Plan 2018 – 2022 recognizes the importance of this work, which is why one of its pillars is to “Promote universal access to comprehensive quality sexual and reproductive health services throughout the life cycle and reduce maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent morbidity and mortality in Nigeria.”

Marie Stopes’ work is supporting the government in making sure Nigeria can achieve the targets to reduce morbidity and mortality, which means improving the health and wellbeing of women and girls in Nigeria. We should be celebrating their efforts, not intimidating them.

Ten percent (10%) of maternal deaths in Nigeria is due to unsafe abortion. Access to safe abortion is restricted in Nigeria, and can only take place in circumstances where a woman’s life is at risk.

Even though safe abortion services are restricted, access to post-abortion care (a service for women and girls who have medical complication as a result of unsafe abortion) is not restricted. Nigerian laws and policies uphold women and girls’ rights to post-abortion services, a much needed service that Marie Stopes provides.

Services providers who are implementing these policies and guidelines should not be subjected to harassment and intimidation for performing their jobs. These healthcare workers are providing care and saving lives; actions that should be praised and promoted.

These efforts to demonize and block access to legal services are being funded in Nigeria by a Spanish organisation called CitizenGO.

CitizenGo is a partner to an SPLC designated hate group World Congress of Families and the city of Madrid has banned their …

Big social event coming up. Enter Turbo Fire Workout. And you need to know how to lose weight fast in a week so you can fit into that outfit and impress the socks off of EVERYONE. Enter the 5 Day Inferno Plan.

Well, failure is not an option with the Turbo Fire 5 Day Inferno Plan workout, which is included in the complete Turbo Fire DVD Program. It's a mini "crash" program formulated for people who are getting ready for a big social function or just want to get a jump-start on the Turbo Fire ("TF") Workout program in general.

Basically, this is developed as a Monday through Friday plan. The 5 Day Inferno Plan helps you to get on the fast-track to losing weight and helping your muscles go from flabby to toned quickly and boosting your metabolism and burning fat.

As long as you follow the meal suggestions faithfully, and do one TF workout, minimum everyday, you can start this 5 day plan on any day of the week that works for you. Just stick to the plan!

The TF Inferno Plan comes with preplanned menus of 1200 calories, give or take, each day. And, each day has scheduled Turbo Fire classes or workouts. This will cause you to begin to plan out your meals and workouts using your personal tracker that is provided.

If you follow these instructions, you could lose up to 10 pounds and 10 inches in those 5 days.

To give you an idea of ​​the Inferno Plan, here is Day 1:

WORKOUTS:

Fire 55 EZ Class and Stretch 10 Class (Don't let the "EZ" fool you.)

MEALS:

Breakfast – Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

Snack 1 – half of a medium-sized banana, 7 walnut halves

Lunch – Tuna Salad

Snack 2 – One serving of Shakeology, 8 oz. water, 1/2 tbsp. almond butter, mix in blender with

ice.

Dinner – Honey Dijon Chicken with Steamed Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli

The nutrient information for Day 1:

Calories: 1183

Total fat: 41g

Protein: 107g

Carbs: 101g

Fiber: 16.5g

So, whether you're doing the 5 Day Inferno Plan or TF as a whole, you will burn 9X more fat and calories than you would with a typical cardio routine. TF accomplishes this by implementing HIIT, which is high intensity interval training. This is done by longer bursts of high intensity energy with shorter breaks.

Although, the HIIT workouts are intense, they are for a shorter period of time. Even though they last only a few minutes, scientific studies have shown that HIIT exercises, like in TF, burn calories during and after working out. You can get that after-burn for up to two entire days.

And it's perfect for people who don't have much time to work out or go to the gym and want an effective workout, since the workouts are shorter!
