Going for it in the Finale! Check out Toni to my left. See those abs??? She has had seven children and this was her fist video experience! I love having those abs in class. It motivates me to eat clean!

Chalene - Toni gives me hope! I love seeing real women - real moms I should say....I've had 4 kids and thought my tummy was just gonna be all blah forever - but I love seeing women that have had kids and have their tummy flat & lookin' good. Thanks!

Hi Stephanie!

Yes, there is hope.. you can always strive to be YOUR best. Though I hope all of us remember that we all have different parents and different genetics... look at my sister and I! As hard as I might try, I will never have long legs... and I'm cool with that!

Each of us is put together a little differently. You were designed that way for a reason :) Be happy with your own PERSONAL best, despite what the media tells us is normal! It's how we measure up against a non-fit version of ourself and not how we measure up against someone with different genetics :)

And most importantly, exercise makes you feel better and when you feel better, you treat people with patience, understanding and kindess....

(Okay..I'm sounding a bit too much like Ghandi today...)

Off to volunteer at my daughters school.

It's so important to have inspiration. I keep a folder full of fit women who inspire me to eat well and exercise hard, but to truly be fit physically and mentally we have to accept that were all put together a little differently :)

Chalene - yeah I've come to realize that I will never be 6 foot tall - bummer huh? I'm happy, very happy, with what God has given me. Now all I'm doing is trying to get in good shape, to have the energy needed for 4 kids, one still in diapers, and to just have more fun in life. I may not ever have a 6 pack but a flat belly I can have (I've had that before). I'm cool with that! I just want to be the best I can be!

Where did you sister get those legs? I want some!

Thanks a ton Chalene "Ghandi"!

Chalene, I love the way that you use "real" women, especially real moms. I'm a working mom at the end of my 3rd pregnancy, and it gives me real hope to see you and the other women you use all look so fit, healthy and beautiful! Toni looks awesome!! And I'm only 5'0", so you're tall me to me, girl!

Just thought that you would like to know that I have ordered your product (Turbo Jam) on 4/8/06.. with FREE expidited shipping....(5-7 business days).. today is 4/24/06 and I STILL DO NOT HAVE THE PACKAGE.... It shipped on 4/17/06 (way more than 5-7 business days) and now UPS has lost it..... the people at beach body want to keep "waiting another day" to see if the package just happens to show up........ Now they want me to wait another 5-7 business days for a new package... is this the type service and guarantees that you like for your name to be associated with? Is there any way that you can help me to get some service?

I hope this person instructing this workout ACTUALLY HAS MARTIAL ATS TRAINGING if she is going to add kick boxing in the workout.

teaching 'kick boxing' with absolutely NO formal kickboxin training would be ashame. especially if someone got ahold of this video, and did it, then claimed they had a black belt or something. it can and has happened.

I've known people that i teach in my dojo (karate studio) who have learned billy blanks' taebo then said they had a black belt in tae-kwon do and billy blacks was their instructor.

just something FOR YOU to think about.

I also have ordered the product and have had no success receiving it. I am about to give up. this should be available in stores instead...

Hi
Thought you would want to know that ordering and receiving your product is very difficult. The people are sneaky and manipulative with their many sales tactics. I reported all of my frustrations with ordering this producr with my local news channel and am expecting them to investigate and report on the many unhappy customers.
