Curious as to what or why Turbo Fire for a workout program? I decided to take the time to share my Turbo Fire Review including a link of reviews from others.
Chalene Johnson has created several successful workouts for Beachbody. I love her PiYo program. One of her most popular workouts is Turbo Fire, a HIIT-heavy, cardio-centered program that can burn up to nine times more calories and fat than a regular cardio workout can.
HIIT is High-Intensity Interval Training, which is just a fancy way of saying that you alternate a minute of cardio exercise with a one-minute rest period. The fluctuating heart rate is what contributes to the faster fat-burn.
If you’ve looked at any other Beachbody workouts, the calendar for Turbo Fire will look familiar. The 90-day program is divided into three phases, with each stage being roughly four weeks. The steps build in intensity, and there are increasingly advanced moves.
The first step is the easiest. During the first month, you will ease into the workouts gradually, learning the exercises you will use throughout the program.
Building on what you learned the previous month, you’ll ramp up the intensity with the cardio and focus more on strengthening exercises. It’s the perfect bridge between the initial step and the finishing step.
Here is where you are going to really see results. The HIIT workouts are interspersed with more cardio workouts to maximize your calorie burn.
These workouts last for 15-25 minutes, depending on what step you are on. For example, HIIT 20 is referred to as “Fire Drills” and consists of seven segments. It takes 20 minutes to complete.
With longer workouts (30-55 minutes) and more straight cardio, you will get most of your burn during your Fire days. People tend to like these sessions because the cardio combines kickboxing and dance moves (among others) and music can be a great motivator.
Interspersed among the HIIT and Fire workouts are targeted days where you sculpt, tone, stretch, and work on your core.
According to most Turbo Fire reviews, the best way to get results is to follow the class schedule and accompanying nutrition guide, because they were created to compliment each other. Reviewers also often comment on how Chalene Johnson is such a positive coach, which encourages people to do better each time they try a new exercise.
Another key is to stay motivated and don’t get discouraged if you can’t do everything to speed right off the bat. It may take some time to get into the routine and learn the proper techniques. That’s okay. Do your best with every workout, and you will see results. I hope that my Turbo Fire Review gives you the information you need to jump on board and try out the Turbo Fire Workout.
