I was sitting up late one night when nothing but infomercials were playing . As I was flipping through the television channels, I had to stop and watch . There were all of these people , of course mostly women but men sprinkled in as well, moving their bodies to pumping music that was a bit dancey but also intermingled with some really athletic moves.
Alot of punching, kicking and shaking going on. Just watching this commercial, the energy was infectious . I felt drawn to this work-out program.The fact that their studies showed you could burn up to 1,000 calories after an hour of Turbo Jam definitely didn’t hurt. After seeing the infomercials a few more times, I was hooked and had to have Turbo Jam.
I eagerly awaited for the package. I was like a kid at Christmas. I immediately popped a dvd into the player and off I went. The creator of Turbo Jam is a perky fitness instructor named Chalene Johnson. She is from the OC but seems very down to earth and she is definitely inspiring.She is a 40 something mom of two that never seems to let dust settle under her feet.
She definitely looks alot younger and attributes it to fitness. Her moves are fun, but they are also a great work-out . The more effort and energy you put into it, the more effective and the higher the calorie burn.The music is great and keeps you on course. I especially love it when the people in the video are also sweating instead of looking perfectly fresh.
I found myself looking forward to the workouts. As I began to experience change others noticed and asked me what I was doing. Of course I had to tell them about Turbo Jam.Turbo Jam combines kick boxing , with cardio exercise, fun music and can be modified for your own current level of fitness..until one day you realize that you do not need any modifications.
It builds your strength, endurance, and if you keep it up you will see weight loss. Turbo Jam is far more fun and goes by much quicker than my time spent on the elliptical machine that I once owned and could easily double as a coat rack at times.
This was my first introduction to Beachbody products and after 4 years I am still primarily attracted to all of the workouts that Chalene Johnson puts out, even though Beachbody carries many products that appeal to diverse tastes that are equally as effective.Now that is really saying something for me.
I was able to go to the Beachbody websight and sign up for a free basic membership where I could log all of my workouts. This has made me more accountable. I could read the experiences and successes of others and connect with many like-minded people.I was also assigned a free coach if I needed any support or guidance about my fitness or health concerns.
No matter our age, it is never too late to find fitness. It is necessary if we really want to find happiness, health and well-being.My own journey is ongoing and continues. Finding balance in our hectic lives is not a selfish thing but rather imperative and enables us to function at a higher level, have more energy and be more accessible to those we love. It is so nice to be able to recommend a great fitness program that I really believe in and still enjoy after all of this time.
Chalene Johnson now has a new program called Turbofire and I personally cannot wait until I get my own.If you would like any more information on Turbo Jam or about my personal experience please feel free to click on my link (http://beachbodycoach.com/Dakelly) I love it. I think you will too. Or maybe you will find an activity that suits your interest and go on your own fitness journey. I plan mine one day at a time, so can you.
