I saw the infomercial for TurboJam and decided to give it a try.  The people looked like they were having fun.  I must say, it is very addicting just as Chalene says.  I love it!  I would recommend anyone who doesn't like to exercize and who likes hip hop music to give this a try!  You won't regret it!  Since buying this product and watching my diet, I've lost 25 pounds!

Turbo Jam is a popular workout DVD set that includes several phases of the workout on DVDs and a book on eating foods to maximize weight loss while using the Turbo Jam workout.

**The Good News First**

Turbo Jam is energizing and fast-paced. It has upbeat music to keep you going and the moves are fresh. The trainer shares unique ways to move fast and burn more calories during your workout.

This weight loss program is geared towards younger people or dieters who have been exercising a while and need a change in their workout. As far as calorie burned, the DVD set delivers. You will sweat your butt off and be sore the next few days.

**The Not So Good News**

I'm not a dancer by any means. I would rather be resistance training than doing cardio anyway, but I realize cardio is necessary for heart health and weight loss, so I look for interesting ways to work it in. I thought that Turbo Jam would be perfect for me to have fun while working out. Fun isn't the word I would use to describe Turbo Jam though. They describe it as a cardio party, but it really is a difficult workout and after watching the moves and learning them, the workouts had me sweating bullets and sore for days afterward.

The moves are difficult and some of them felt awkward to do. If you aren't used to "shimmying" your hips and throwing in "hip" dance moves throughout your workout, it may throw you off too.

**Recommendation**

I prefer to call a party a party a workout a workout. There is no question in my mind that the Turbo Jam is a workout that will help you burn calories and lose weight, but a party it is not. The young and fit may enjoy this workout though.

I owe my swimsuit body to these videos

By 

from Hazelwood, MO

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

I really have felt that after learning all the routines (yes this is easy to do because there aren't very many.)  I can concentrate on the muscles I am using and this has given me great definition in my legs, arms and abs..  I don't think Chalene is obnoxious like most workout video persons.  I like that there are a variety of different lengths of videos so that I can fit them into my schedule as I please.  I own all except the ball workouts.  I just hope she comes out with more videos!

I couldn't live without it

By 

from Hickory, NC

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

Chalene is the best.  Turbo jam never gets old.  I have been doing it for almost 2 years.  There are 15 different workouts to choose from.  The duration is up to you.  You could choose a 20 min DVD or a 60 min DVD to do.  I love Turbo so much I couldn't live without it.  It is very easy to do and the music is great.

Time flies with turbojam workouts

By 

from Gilroy, CA

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

I enjoy the videos. I own several of them and I don't feel they are too difficult to follow or to complete an entire workout.  Doing the  the Learn dvd help understand the moves that Chalene refers to. I don't like dancy workouts and did not think that this one was too dancy, the option to do your own thing and modify is always there. After doing them a couple times they are easy to catch on to. Time seems to pass fairly quickly doing these workouts. Chalene can be alittle irritaing at times, and the music isn't my favorite but a Good workout, now if only I could watch what I ate i might get the results that the informercial promises.

Turbo Jam actually gets me off my butt !!

By 

from Cape May, NJ

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

I first started the basic Turbo Jam DVD's back in May 2006. I alternated my days between Ab Jam/20 Minute Workout and Cardio Party Monday-Friday. I stuck with it and by November Iwas 35 lbs lighter and 3 sizes smaller!! (Although I have to say I didn't modify my diet at all, so maybe if I gave up the junk food I would have shaved off a month or two LOL)

Let me say it kicked my butt from the very first day, but I was hooked instantly. It is the MOST fun I have ever had working out. I had tried quite a few DVD's and routines before, but got ooooo bored after 2 or 3 weeks. But not with this! The music is well coordinated with the routines so it makes it feel more like dancing than work. Chalene is motivating and "peppy" without being annoying or talking down to you. She is also very good at reminding you about your form and working at your own level.

The routines move through levels of intensity which is great for fat burning and working up a sweat. ( And you WILL sweat!) But instead of making me feel worn out, it just gave me tons of energy.

I just started back up again a month ago but added the Cardio Party Mix 2 and Punch, Kick and Jam routines into the mix. I look forward to excercising every day now because I know it works and keeps me interested.

Turbo Jam-Makes working out fun!

By 

from Norfolk, NE

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

Over the past several years I have tried just about every exercise program out there. From hip hop to kickboxing to aerobics to yoga, I've tried it all. And NOTHING compares to these workouts! Turbo Jam was created by Chalene Johnson to to help people finally enjoy working out instead of just "putting in their time" at the gym. She combines dancing with aerobics and kickboxing type moves as well as Tai Chi and a little yoga to get you cooled down and stretched out at the end of the workouts. The workouts range from about 30-50 minutes and will get you working up a sweat, burning calories and fat, without being so difficult you think you just can't go on anymore. The best part of the workouts is that Chalene is right there with you every step of the way, doing the exercises right with you instead of just telling you what to do. She is motivating and encouraging and helps you succeed by making you believe you truly can do anything if you just keep working at it!

You get what you ask for.

By 

from Edgewood, NM

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

I never really worked out before I had a baby. My job kept me in shape. Being a stay at home mom changed my body because there wasn't any given chances to work out. I had to find workout options that worked for me. I looked into buying exercise equipment but I there was that feeling the equipment would collect dust after I get done using it for only a day. Consistency was never part of me. If I get bored with something, there is a guaranteed I would just forget about it forever. I saw the infomercial for Turbo Jam and was excited about it. I bought it right away and started it up. Wanting to lose baby weight, I immediately put all my effort and motivation in it. The videos are so fun. After a few days of vigorous exercise, my appetite was curbed and I no longer wanted to eat junk food. I ate healthy and drank lots of water. I lost 15 pounds in a month. I was full of energy and my knees were strong. I bought some clothes that I couldn't believe I fit in. I knew I wouldn't try anything else again. These videos are it and they are always near my DVD player ready to be put in anytime.

I'm lazy, but these workouts are fun!

By 

from West Jordan, UT

Comments about Turbo Jam Maximum Results Package:

Turbo Jam is really a fun exercise! Charlene (the lady who designed Turbo Jam) gets you pumped up! My favorite part of the exercise is that when you are doing Cardio Party she is always thinking about your core. You basically are working out your abs while you are working out everything else. I find this especially important because of it seems to be the most problematic area for people. I also love that she mixes up the exercises. It isn't your same old boring workout routine, its something new and different. And to be honest it is pretty fun. A lot of the time I just feel like I'm dancing. And I think that the background music she put into the videos is pretty good too. This video really works! You can feel all your muscles when you get done working out. It really works out muscles that you might not have known you even had. It works!
