I recently bought the Turbo Jam workouts and I love them! The workouts are fun and the time flies by fast. They have a timer that runs the entire time as well as one for each segment. Chalene does these "Turbos" were for about 90 seconds you're going full blast. She does have people showing modifications. While everyone is different I have not had any problems getting through the workouts (I weigh 249). Some of the choerography may be difficult for some people but with time it will be learned. The workouts are "dancy" however it's a freestyle dance where you do what you want and not have to "learn" any complicated steps. I highly recommend this workout and have fun!

I have had this product for almost 10 days. I think it is a wonderful workout. My only complaint is that the music that is "raved" about in the infomercial would be wonderful, but you can barely feel/hear it over the instructor talk. So far I have stuck with it and I would probably buy her new cardio party mixes when they come out, but I will still switch it up with Tae Bo and The FIRM. I feel like I get more of a workout with the weights and cardio in one. WE'll see! I weight in and measure up in 10 days! The diet plan that came with this product is very doable. I haven't felt better in my life. I usually have low blood sugar and the diet that is very high protien seems to work well. Just plan on spending a lot of time in the kitchen!

I tried using it and being at my present weight of 260 pounds I was unable to get through the first 5 minutes. If you are fat like me, I would recommend using an effective diet first. Lose 100 pounds and then mabye. I am glad I didn't buy this myself. I borrowed from another heavy weight and we both agree, it is not designed for the obese.

Hi, I have had the opportunity to do the second round of videos produced by Beach Body.Turbo Jam Cardio Party Remix, and Booty Sculpt. These are thankfully much better than the first round of videos. They are more true to form, with real people working out in real time with the Instructor. I was able to really workout, without looking at the manipulative faces of the cast (seems like they wanna be stars too). It really felt like a real time class. The cardio video is very taxing and 30 minutes, followed by a 30 minute sculpting video that works every muscle. All in all, these videos are effective, safe, fun and authentic.

I bought Turbo Jam before the holidays and hid it away due to family coming to town. I just broght it back out and wished I worked with it much sooner. I am the one of the laziest people I know, so if I can do it and love it, then I recommend it to anyone. I like it, because I don't feel my knees or back is strained. Chalene may be bouncy, but it makes it more fun than tae bo. I like the faces they make because it makes it fun and light-hearted. You feel like goofing off too. While you are goofing off, you are working out and breaking a sweat. The hardest part is to motivate yourself to pop the video in and get started.

I have many, many exercise videos. I have been working out to videos regularly for the past 3 years. I would get bored of the same ones so I'd try another one. I tried Slim n 6 but could not finish the 6 weeks, just did not do it for me. I received my Turbo Jam videos in October and have not looked at another video since then. I absolutely without a doubt can say they are the funnest videos I have ever done. They are not cheesy like most exercise videos are. I just ordered Chalene's newest two videos yesterday and cannot wait until they get here! I like Cardio Party 2 the best. At first I didn't care for the Turbo Sculpt but I started doing it with 8 lb. weights and now I can see some changes in my upper body. I also normally hate working my abs but for some reason I look forward to Ab Jam. Over the holidays, I noticed my stomach getting bigger so I started doing Ab Jam more and I noticed a difference in a matter of two weeks. The music is really the key to these videos. I normally do not listen to the type of music Chalene uses in these videos but it is so energizing that it makes you push yourself harder than I have ever worked out before. As with most of the other reviewers here, I cannot say enough about these videos!

All I can say is, Chalene Johnson, please make more Turbo Jam DVD's. This is the best workout ever. You really do see results,--fast!! I also have Power90, and do not like it at all!! I love the Turbo Jam music most of all. Chalene is awesome, she talks you through everything. You will results, but you have to stick with the program.

Turbo Jam has been one of the best work outs I have done in a long time, I've done Turbo Jam twice and have lost a total of 5.7 inches. Get it, do it, you will love it.

This is one of the best workouts our right now. This will deffinately give billy blanks a run for his money! Working out should be fun and the music should be funky. Why? Because it keeps you interested, motivated and wanting more. No matter what you size. You will love it

Turbo Jam is a great workout that I look forward to doing everyday. I even quit my gym membership because of this workout! I have some rythym, but it did take me a few tries of each video to "get it"... which isn't bad at all. If you have purchased these videos and only tried it once, because you couldn't catch on fast enough.... keep doing them! You'll get it in no time! I'm currently doing the "turbo slim" part of the program, ( which is where you workout for 10 days and eat healthy meals) so we'll see what happens. I'm a believer so far and can't wait to go home to do this workout!

I'd been happily using Power90 but wanted an alternate aerobic workout. I tried TaeBo, but was frustrated over my lack of coordination and inability to keep up with the tempo (I'm slightly dyslexic). I purchased Turbo Jam and seem to do better at keeping in step with the instructor. It's fun and okay for me to use as an additional program to fight boredom.

Are you kidding me?? This work out is slamming!! I have them all! Cathe, The Firm, Kathy Smith, Gin Miller, Sharon Mann, etc. You can not beat Chalene. She is a great instructor who actually seems like she is really talking to you and cares!! This video is everything it says it is. I have tried other BeachBody but didn't like them. With Turbo you are sweating and having so much fun! Abs, Legs, Butt and more!! The music could be better, too much in the background but who cares!! I want to be pushed to the next level and Chalene does it!!! Thank you! Please make more!!

I have plenty of work out tapes but this was the one for me. The music is great that I can't believe the workout is over so fast. I can't wait to get home from work to do the TURBO JAM. I do this tape twice a day. I LOVE IT and I highly reccommend it. It's fun and easy. I am waiting for new ones to come out. Get it, you love it Gloria California

I actually own a few beachbody product, power90, slim in 6 and now turbo jam. All workout give you results if you stick with the program. Never have I made it to the 90 days required for Power 90 and the 6 weeks required for Slim in 6, I got bored. I recently purchase Turbo jam because as I said I love the beachbody workout but I need something that is going to keep me motivated. I have to say I think I found that in Turbo Jam, I had to take a week off from working out and I actually missed The TJ crew and the workout. After reading other customer's comments I can't understand how anyone could not love this program. All all the different workouts I can switch workout and never get bored. Charlene and teh crew gets my hype and wanting to comeback for more. Teh first week I was so excited I was doing the Cardio Party, 20 min workout and ad jam everyday! If I had that kind of time I would keep doing that, I would recommend this workout for anyone who loves a party, a great workout and good looking people to look at who had great results from the same working you are doing with them. Thanks Charlene and crew: )

To anyone considering TJ: It is the BEST investment you can make in any workout system. I did Slim in 6 and lost, but it really irritated my knees, and was just irritating after a while to stick with. I tried P90 and while I was gaining strength, I lost NOTHING, and was bored to tears - I felt like I was going to the dentist just to work out. With Turbo Jam its fun - you actually feel like you've been out dancing at a party rather than working out (Except with turbo sculpt, which you feel!!) The others make you sweat and bop. For those who think it doesn't work, or think it requires coordination: I have no real coordination. After doing the 20 minute workout about 4 times, I was able to get through almost everything without losing a step - and for me that's pretty good. But the key is results: I have a very difficult time losing weight and inches. I've cut pop and junk for the most part, but unlike the other times I tried (and failed), this time I have NOT made any other major changes to my diet. In the first ten workouts (JUST working out, not following the diet), I'd lost 6 pounds and 9 inches. I've since done five more workouts and am now at 8 pounds and 13 1/2 inches. For anyone who thinks it doesn't work - it does.

I LOVE Turbo Jam! Pluses: no equipment, great music, timeclock on the bottom of the screen is very helpful, exercisers of different ethnicities and sizes, non-coordinating outfits. Minuses: occasional cueing errors, not enough stretching after the workout. Overall, if you want the benefits of a TaeBo type workout without the boredom, this is it. I was a "Firm Believer" and now I will stick with TurboJam. Its fun, and you will look forward to the dvd, not dread it like I did The Firm.

I've tried so many other workout videos before. Turbo Jam is by far the most exciting. I really do look forward to it each day. It is easy on the body and so much fun. Chalene is just adorable and the music is perfect for the time of dance/workout. The cast is high energy and a couple of them are just so cute to watch. They just make you smile. As a 26 year old, mother of 2, I highly reccommend this for anyone short on time and in need of some fun while trimming down.

I absolutely love Turbo Jam. You do need to be somewhat coordinated in order to do this. I look forward to working out because Turbo Jam is fun and the music is great! I have tried Power 90, which I loved, but this is actually fun.

I've used TJ for about 4 weeks now. I really like it!! It's fun and really works! I do wish the music was louder though. I have to crank the volume when I use it. I haven't weighed yet, but my clothes are looser and I feel stronger. I also ordered the Lower Body Jam--woah, you can really feel it! I am very pleased with the product. TJ Rocks!!
