Get Ready to take a Live Turbo Jam Workout!

For those who stopped by my live chat the other day, you probably already know that we are in production on tons of new videos. The one's I'm most excited about are the ones for those of you who are wondering what a "live" class is really like. Thanks to the "ask and you shall receive" attitude of Beach Body, you're going to get it.

These workouts are going to be the real deal. We're shooting them in the gym that I teach Turbo Jam in nearly everyday, with members who really take my classes. Our plan is to catch the "raw" and "real" feel of a live class. We won't be stopping to dry off or red-do things. When I teach a live class...It's anything goes! Lot's of play, loads of fun, turn up the volume and do your own thing. I've invited some really fun people that you're going to love working out with. I think you'll love seeing all the different styles of Turbo Jamers!

Kickin' it up a notch (or two..)
When I teach a live class I use the same choreography for about 12 weeks. Yet, every couple of weeks I add in an extra layer of difficulty so that people are pushing themselves and doing more as they learn the routine. That's not as easy to replicate on video. Hold on though...I think I've figured out a way to take you to that next level and I hope you'll love it. It's Cardio Party Remix. I don't know if this has ever been done before?! I've picked the best sections from each of the three cardio workouts... i.e. the 20 minute Workout, Cardio Party 1 and Cardio Party 2, but with all the extra bells and whistles, to really give you an intense workout. We've done this for fitness instructors, and we called them "best of". They are the best workouts and the most fun of all!

We film in just a couple of days. I'm working around the clock to make sure you get a totally live and legit feel from this class. I can't wait. I want to do it tomorrow!

We're also going to film Booty Sculpt and abs... but that's another blog :)

Well, I'm a long way from being able to do a "live" workout -- I'm just now getting Cardio Party I down. But I want to tell you -- I've been involved with Beachbody workouts since 2003 and this is the FIRST time in a LONG time I've been excited about exercising! And it's probably the FIRST TIME EVER IN MY LIFE that I have actually enjoyed working out!!!!!

Turbo Jam is just the program I've been looking for -- I just didn't know it 'til I found it.

Thanks, gal!

I LOVE Turbo Jam, and I can't wait to sample the new videos. I've been doing Beachbody workouts (exclusively) for over 3 years now, and your program absolutely rocks.

Its fun and ever changing....keeping boredom at bay, and letting the good times roll (and fat melt away)!

I'll be anxiously waiting! :D

Chalene you said a couple of days sooooooo did the filming happen? If not do you have a better idea of when? I am so anxious for TJ workouts with the intensity and feel of a real class. I can hardly wait.

Thank you so much for these workouts.

Chalene - girl I can't wait for the live workout and the booty workout (my booty needs some liftin' - so bring it!). I've never - NEVER - had this much fun doing a workout. It's not even really working out - it's having FUN!!!! Keep 'em coming.

It is too cool that you all are working on giving us alternatives, specially the feel of a live class.

And bring on the Booty Jam! I want to have a booty that even I can't keep my hands off it. LOL!! ok, that was weird...

Hey, us Turbo Guys would also like to look all stylish while jamming. Is there any turbo wear for guys in the future?

Shaking and Shedding!

I've been using Turbo Jam for only few months but I see results and I enjoy every bit of that workout! This morning I just ordered the Turbo live, can't wait to have and use it. I've never been so devoted working out at home until I've tried Turbo Jam. I'm always looking forward on working home.

thanks a lot and hope that you'll create more workout that has so much power and excellent music.
