I am a group exercise instructor with over 22 years of experience, and have known Chalene's work through the years. I am extremely picky about endorsing any workout to my clients, but having Turbo Jam myself, I can say that it is effective, well put together, energizing and most of all....FUN! When you have a "party" at your class. The participants get motivated, which then motivates you as an instructor. Chalene and the crew get me going in my house! It's a great workout for when you know you are going to have one of those "busy" days where the gym isn't an option. If you need to lose weight, if you are looking to get lean, this workout coupled with a realistic eating plan will work! Chalene is inspiring, creative and this product is yet ANOTHER hit for her! Keep it coming!

I bought this product about a month ago. I wanted something that would keep me interested in working out. I have found Turbo Jam to be lots of fun and keeps me wanting more. Before I bought this product I was going to a kickboxing class which was lots of fun but I found that I did not have the time in the afternoons for the class. I now do the TJ in the morning before going to work and when the kids are asleep. TJ gives me lots of energy to tackle my day. I recommend TJ to everyone. Like someone else mention I wish the music was a bit louder but it still works for me.

This is the one time that I would strongly suggest to skeptics to try this program. I am sure it isn't for everyone but I do think that it will fill a wider demographic than most exercise videos. I have owned this complete program since September. During just that month alone I lost over 9 lbs, which for me was great. Since then I have not been able to exercise as much as I would like because of serious illness in my family. While I know circumstances are beyond my control when I am not able to exercise I genuinely miss my Turbo Jam. Normally I just hate being off schedule but dread the workouts anyway...with Turbo Jam I look forward to it and want to do it even when I can't. To me the most important thing is finding something you enjoy and look forward to. No matter how effective something is if it feels like a chore you aren't gonna be very motivated to do it. The music is great although it could be louder or have an option of making it louder as you become more familiar with the moves. I suck at line dancy type stuff but while it did take a while to get all the moves it does not feel anything close to line dancing choreography...The moves are effective and Chalene and others enthusiam is contagious. I have never liked any other workout as much as Turbo Jam. I have thought about purchasing different style workouts but instead have decided to just wait on Turbo Jam's new videos to come out because I think I would miss it too much if I did something else. I have seen positive changes in my body and know when life lets me get back to Turbo Jamming regularly I will be greatly rewarded. I encourage skeptics thinking this is just another Taebo wannabe to take another look, this might be the workout that makes you want to exercise regularly!

I absouletly love these workouts. It's seriously the only workout I've done where I have everything I wanted in one. It's so fun, and Chalene is very motivational, not to mention they have very attractive, inspirational people that workout with her in the videos. Like the one girl who lost 70lbs., I think, and has a 6-pack now!!! I can't believe that. Also, it's something very fun, and doesn't bore me, and I can still keep up with it and not get lost. I've tried maaaany other workouts, some were just walking in place and bored me to death, I about fell asleep while doing them, haha. Others were so advanced doing aerobics moves using steps and just were crazy and had no organization to the moves and I got lost every 2 minutes. I've also purchased a few expensive pieces of fitness equipment that haven't worked out... such as a treadmill, exercise bike, and a gazelle. It's not that I doubted that any of those machines or videos (and I must say I've done many more than are mentioned above) would work, but none of them could keep my interest and make me want to come back and do them again and again. The thing is, I was so sore the first few mornings after doing Turbo Jam, but I still couldn't wait to go workout. That's the key for me, if at the end of a workout, I feel like "Oh, thank God that's over", I probably won't keep doing it. If however, after finishing a workout, I think "Man, I can't wait till the next workout, that was so much fun!", which is the case with TJ, than I know I'll be back for more. I totally recommend Turbo Jam to everyone!

I love these DVD's. They are a lot of fun and I really look forward to doing them. I like the spirited personality of Chalene. This is a program that I know that I will stick to for life. I can't wait for the additional DVD's to be released. I recommend these DVD's to anyone you needs motivation to get up and get moving.

I have so much fun with the Turbo Jam workouts! I love the music and just the comraderie of the crew. I wish the music was a little louder, though. I'm 46, and this workout is really toning my abs and my hips. I don't care for the Jamm'd feature at the end of the dvd. It makes Chalene seem mean spirited.

I have had this workout for a couple months now and wish I had saved my money. It is an effective, sweat breaking workout, and I believe it will give results if you can get past the silly antics of the participants. I have never had a product that annoyed me so much, even if it is effective. (Even Denise Austin is not this annoying) When I pay this much money for a product, I WILL let something like a goofy presentation distract me. Teenagers will like this one, but I am put off by juvenile antics of Charlene and crew--i.e. making constant faces etc. The music is not as great as advertised, either--it fits the chaotic "paarr-tay" atmosphere on the tape. I have most of Beachbodie's workouts, but I think this one will go .

Ohmigosh! I got my Turbo Jam system a week ago and haven't put it down yet. I LOVE IT! It doesn't feel like exercise at all to me, but I know I'm really working out by the sweating that I'm doing after it's over. I'm having a ball. While it's too early to have lost any weight or inches because of it, I know it's coming. Not only that, with all the moving I'm doing, my cholesterol is bound to come down. If you're thinking about trying it. DO IT. You WON'T regret a minute of it.

I just finished my first session of Turbo Jam Learn & Burn. It begins with a segment titled Learn the Elite 11. I found this very helpful. I completed the learning segment and the 20 minute beginner workout. I worked up a sweat and I can really feel it in my butt and the back of my thighs which is where I need it the most. I am 44 years old, 5'5" and 138 lbs. I have not been exercising much over the last two years, so I am not in great shape. I was able to complete the workout with no problems. It was fun and the time did go by fast. I will continue to review as I progress through the set of dvd's.

I absolutely LOVE this workout! I teach step aerobics 3 times a week and I also use other exercise videos. I have never taken a class, whether in person or via video that was more fun that Turbo Jam! The music is incredible. The workout is intense and you really feel your muscles working. I've only been using it a few weeks and I have already lost pounds and inches. I lost about 100 pounds about 7 years ago, but I could never lose the last "20". Turbo Jam is making that happen. I love it!

I just started Turbo Jam this week and all I can say is I wish I found this sooner. Chalene is so sincere and so motivating - you feel like you've known her. I have done every workout there is on the market and this one is by far, the one that has motivated me the most. Keep up the fantasic work Chalene. You and Turbo Jam are a gem. I highly recommend this to all. Don't try it, buy it!

I just started turbo jam and the workouuts are good the only thing is the dvd has a little skip in it but nothing that will effect the workout. I like the fact that the the program has the time bar that tells you how much longer you have to do this. I am not one who likes to exercise but for some reason scoreness and all I wake up in the morning and do the program. So far I think this is a good program the music has arist like earth,wind,and fire so I really like that. to any one who wonders if they should try it I say you should because if you do not like it beachbody will give you your money back.

I looove these workouts. The cardio parties are so much fun. I feel I am not exercising. I will buy the new Turbo Jam workouts Chalene is making. Turbo Jam rocks!!!!

I purchased this item for the cardio but I sent it back. I read all the information that came with it and then started with the instructional video. I never made it to the end. I constantly had to think about what I was doing and before I got one move down she had already moved on to the next. I prefer more simple basic moves that don't involve coordination.

I totally love this work out. I am usually a person who has to force myself to work out and usually I do so with a ton of dread. Turbo Jam is different. I have had Turbo Jam for 6 weeks and for the most part I look forward to every workout. I really like the fact that the people in the video post on the beachbody website. They answer questions and offer advice. The cool thing is that some of the people in the video have lost tons of weight doing Turbo Kick (gym version of Turbo Jam). When I need inspiration I look at Mindy and Anna-Rita who have lost tons and tons of weight.

Chalene's TurboJam does work and is addictive. The music is great and as long as you stay in there it gets easier and then you can do more advance moves and focus on jumping higher and getting lower on other moves. What it does is keep you entertained hile you workout and before you know it you have completed the workout and are drenched with sweat. WatchOut it does become addictive!!!!

I've been doing TJ for 3 weeks now. I haven't seen any results yet of course, but really results for me are a bonus (I'm a tad bit too thin & would looove to gain some muscle weight!). The important part is that this program is fun! I can actually get my butt in gear each day and do the workout. I haven't found any workout other than this that I've been able to stick to (excluding organized sports) since I get bored so easily. This gets an A+ in my books just for the fact that it's not boring and doesn't feel like exercise - I can actually stay motivated!

I have to say that this is one of the greatest workouts that beachbody has put out yet. It doesn't hurt your knees, and the time flies. I didn't even realize that the 45 minutes flew by. I have had it a week and I already notice a difference. I look forward to my workout. It is simular to the TAE BO everyone keeps comparing it to, but Turbo Jam has better music and it keeps you interested.

I have had this product for close to a month and I have really enjoyed it. The music is awesome although a little on the soft side but there is still tons of energy coming out. I don't actually feel like I'm working out, just having tons of fun, but I really feel it afterwards! I have seen awesome results on myself that I haven't been able to get anywhere else! I'm really excited to have Turbo Jam and I often do more than one workout a day just because it sounds like fun. I would highly reccomend it to anyone who loves kickboxing,dancing and just plain having fun!

I'm not one for giving reviews but I couldn't pass on Turbo Jam. This is the BEST workout I have experienced. I love getting home after a long day & just hitting the cardio party. I have seen amazing results & finally feel like I have found a product that will help me reach my fitness & weight loss goals. I love these workouts & look forward to new additions.
