Thoughts on Turbo Fire

So I’m rethinking my commitment to Turbo Fire. There’s no doubt that this is an excellent workout, but it’s really intense, and involves a lot of leaping, jumping, and gymnastics that at my weight and health level I’m not sure is appropriate for me. Should I downgrade to something a little easier, and then work my way back up to doing Turbo Jam? Or should I stick with it, stay in the deep end, and thrash it out, work beyond my limits and crash course my way into health? I’m not sure, but I’m going to have to figure it out.

My results have been awesome with  the Turbo Fire workout thus far, but I’m wondering, wondering. What if I were to warm up with something like Power 90, and then do Turbo Fire? Or a round of Slim in 6 or two? I’m not sure. Going to think it over!

    I am thinking to start Turbo Fire, but I cannot jump into main routine due to my fitness level and additional weight I am carrying. There is solution for us! As an addition to main routine there is 8 week-long preparation program that can make our bodies strong enough to make it through main Turbo Fire. I have access to prep-calendar. If you are interested – let me know. Email provided.

    Best wishes on your way to great body!

    The thing I love about TF is that there is always a modifier doing a lower impact move on stage. Always listen to your body… the last thing you want to do is hurt yourself. If you find it really difficult to keep up I suggest that you follow the low impact version of the drills instead and work you way to doing the higher impact version. Set goals for yourself so that you can improve. I don’t think the workout was made to be easy to follow for anyone (fit or not). However, over time I found that I was able to keep up with the class and push myself more. Don’t make excuses, just make it happen and keep pressing play!
