Last year when the new Turbofire workout program was released, there was quite a bit of hype about it. In fact, a lot of the hype was coming from within my own household! Melinda was waiting on that release date like she was a little kid waiting for Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. She was beyond excited, but I, on the other hand, was wondering what in the heck everyone was getting so excited about. I guess it’s a guy thing, and my pride was forcing me to act like a tough guy. I mean, how can a dude get excited over a new cardio dance workout? To me, Turbo Fire was just the latest craze for women, that is until I tried the workout. It’s about time for my Turbofire review!
Don’t get me wrong, I like to dance. Whenever Melinda and I get a date night, which is rare I might add, we like to go to a club and dance. Dancing is fun and burns a lot of calories, but a dancing workout seemed a little girlish to me. Once Melinda received the Turbo Fire workout program, I decided to read through the guides that came long with the program to check it out and see what it was all about. To my surprise, Turbofire involved much more than dancing, and was a high intensity cardio program that focused on a combination of kickboxing, plyometrics (jump training), and dancing. After I read through the guides, that was the extent of my involvement with Turbofire for the time being.
After a few weeks of watching Melinda shrink from doing the workouts, and watching how much fun she was having while doing it, I decided that I would give it a try. She told me that Turbofire was the most fun she has had working out before, and I thought why not, if it’s fun I can give it a try and get in a good cardio for the day. The first workout I did was Fire 30 or something like that, and I’m not going to lie, I was lost. I mean completely lost. These women were jumping around all over the place, punching at air, dancing to this crazy upbeat music, and I felt like a kid trying to learn how to ride a bicycle for the first time. It was crazy! However, it was fun, and I understood what Melinda meant, but really wanted to learn how to do the moves so that I could really push myself and get in a great cardio workout.
After a few weeks of going through the different workouts and learning the moves, I started getting the hang of it, and really started enjoying the workouts. My favorite is HIIT 25, which is very intense, and has you do crazy intervals for 25 minutes. What’s cool about HIIT 25 is that Chalene Johnson, the creator of Turbo Fire, goes through all of the exercises first, and then this fire bell rings, the music picks up, and you go all out for a few minutes, raising the heart rate by a ton! I’ve even gotten my heart rate up there with what I experience with the Insanity workouts, which is very high.
All in all, Turbofire is a great program, and one I recommend to anyone, even men. Women love it, but men do too, they just don’t tell people about it. Out of all the workouts that I have done, Turbo Fire ranks up there with the most enjoyable, but yet at the same time allows you to get in a crazy high intensity workout. What’s great about the program, too, is that there is resistance training involved, which I feel is very important to maximize weight loss and achieve excellent Turbofire results. A little warning, though, Turbofire is for beginners. If you are out of shape, start with Turbo Jam, a lesser intense workout that will prepare you for Turbofire. I hope my Turbofire review gave you an idea as to what the workout program is like, and I’ll do my best to get other Turbofire reviews posted soon!
