Hye Chalene.
I am in love with your turbo jam.
I have seen some parts of you in classes of hip hop.
I find it much more fun when you are teaching the class and not a man, so I start thinking - maybe you can make a tape of hip hop classes as your turbo jam classes.
It will be great fun and great work out.
You are very great teacher with alot of motivation.
Hope you will read my comment!
Thanks for you and Turbo Jam!!!

Hi Chalene,

Thanks for the recipes, they are great!

I got my Turbo Jam Maximum Results in April 13th/2008 and I've gotten rid of 21 lbs so far. I was 150 lbs and my goal is 120 lbs.

And YES, I said "I've gotten rid of" and not "I've lost". Why? Because just like my mom always says: If you loose something, you can find it, and I'm not looking forward to find those pounds again! =)

Anyway, I'm Brazilian but I live in Olympia, WA, happily married to an American fireman. I love your work outs, I've done capoeira for a few years down in Brazil and I have a few "suggestions" about it...
* First of all, the music on the Punch, Kick & Jam is not capoeira music. It's some sort of African music and even knowing capoeira was invented by African slaves, the music is really different from that (like: REALLY). You need some "berimbau", it's essential for the capoeira music!! There's no Pan-flute... Check this video from National Geographics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV3t9IHQNVQ

* When you were dodging you called it "squiva", the pronunciation should be something like "skeeva".

* Also the wheel, or the AU should be "aooh" and not "al" (that's the sound that a dog makes in Portuguese: "au au").

Thanks for doing a great job on your DVD's.

I've been thinking 6-pack all the time.

Have a great day,

Adriana Bunker
