Cardio Party was the first Turbo Jam video I've tried. I was looking for a fun kickboxing workout, and overall, I was not disappointed. The workout wasn't as dancey as I had expected--there are occasional brief interludes where you are encouraged to move to your own beat--but the entire atmosphere is more akin to a dance club than to a workout studio.

This workout is about 43 minutes long, and I realy liked how it was broken down: each chapter is a 6-7 minute segment that is separately choreographed, so once you are done with that segment, you move on to a new routine. I have provided an overview for the moves contained in each segment below (times are approximate, and I didn't necessarily include *every* move):

Warm-Up, 4 minutes. Charlene begins by warming you up with each of the 4 basic punches (jab, cross, hook, upper) and simple side steps. A few moving stretches are included towards the end.

1st cardio segment, 7 minutes. As with most of the segments, you'll learn two combinations which you then connect together. The first combination consists of "wheel" (a standing side crunch) combined with cross and hook punches. This combo connects to a march with alternating knee lifts and then double knee lifts to either side; at the end, Chalene changes the march to a jog.

2nd cardio segment, 7.5 minutes. The first combination here consists of a partial squat to either side; side kicks are then added to the squat. Building on this, you'll do the squat/side kicks, then squat front and back, add front/back push kicks, and then add knee lifts with front/back push kicks. Last comes a move Chalene calls a "twist"--you'll move front with jab-cross-jab punches and then do a knee lift, first just on the one side but then on both sides with arms added in.

I was totally skeptical when I bought the DVD set and even let it sit on my shelf for months because I thought it looked too hard. I've tried other beachbody workouts, but this one is by far my favorite. I do Turbo Jam everyday and love it! I never used to love to exercise, but now that I've found something I love, exercise is not drudgery.

One of the nice things about it is that the workout can be more or less intense by whatever degree of intensity you want. If you are just getting started moving, you can do the slower workouts such as Burn, or the 20-Minute Jam before heading into Cardio Party.

I wish I could put 10 stars instead of just 5. I would highly recommend this workout to just about anyone. I have shown it to several friends (done the workout with them) and they have all bought the DVDs. I haven't shown it to one person that didn't love it.

As for results, I've been doing TJ for 7 weeks now and I've seen: 12 lb weight loss, 7% reduction in body fat, and 16 inches off my bust, waist & hip measurement. Amazing!!

You have to keep doing it! I watched this informercial for months before finally caving. I looked up many, many reviews online and I have seen almost no negative feedback.

I love the music: There's none of that horrible canned 80s Muzak-with-drumtrack you find in so many workout DVDs. It's all clubby, highly danceable music; I'm sure it would be even more fabulous if you're lucky enough to have a good home theater/stereo system.

Chalene is just as peppy and cute as you'd expect, but she is by no means the "cheerleader" type. She does push, and she does encourage. But throughout the workouts you'll catch a glimpse of the Chalene you don't see very much in the infomercial: sassy, goofy and maybe a little bawdy (but not at all in an off-putting way). She's truly a wonder to behold, and entirely likeable: you don't ever get the sense that she's a phony.

I loved kickboxing, but after a while I developed a raging case of plantar fasciitis and couldn't continue kicking with a wave bag. This workout delivers a lot of hard-kicking, tough-punching fun but with none of the physical contact you might find in a traditional kickboxing workout. You also get a lot of dancy moves, which mixes things up and makes for a much more interesting workout.

I've purchased many workout DVDs and videos over the years, and I have never found one that really pumped me up like this. It's a ball to do, and although I've only just started my third week on the program, I'm finding my pants looser, my muscles tighter and my mood lifted.

Highly, highly recommended.

I bought the complete set on ebay for $45 this summer after seeing the infomercial a million times on T.V. and have used it everyday since then! Before Turbo Jam, I used SLIM IN 6. And to be honest I found it to be so boring. Watching 3 people do the most boring exercise won't keep you motivated! I've tried so many workouts and nothing has ever been able to keep me going throughout the entire workout, let alone to continue using it on a daily basis like Turbo Jam!

I love Chalene's enthusiasm!! She's great at boosting your energy just when you think you're too tired to continue. I have always been slim, but that's it, just slim. I wanted to put on a little more muscle and tone up. This workout does just that. Not only is the workout fun, but the music is too! There really isn't an easier workout out there. Chalene DOES give enough cues. Once you get into the routine you won't even need her to tell you what's next. Predictable, but not boring!


Learn & Burn - This segment of the set will help you learn the moves you'll need in all the workouts.

20 Minute Workout - When I first started this program, it was key to do the 20 minute workout and gradually build up the energy and ability to do the other workouts. After you're well into the program, the 20 minute workout becomes the workout you use most when you're short on time. The moves are easy and fun!

Cardio Party - Now this is where the fun is at it's best! My favorite part of Turbo Jam is the Cardio Party workout. It definitely gets your heart rate going, but not too much. You'll sweat and burn tons of calories! It's full of kicks, punches, squats and other movement which is great!
