when are you planning to start Turbo Fire? I just received it in the mail yesterday and will probably begin on November 17th, after I complete Asylum Volume 2.

I've started playing around a little bit with TF this week to familarize myself with it. I did the Fire Starter Class the other day and felt like I had no coordination as I try to learn the moves. I was punching and kicking in all directions. I did enjoy it and will keep at it this week and begin it full time on Saturday the 17th. The crazy idea I have in my head right now is to hybrid it with Body Beast. Maybe Turbo Fire in the morning before work and then Body Beast after work. Not sure this is the best idea but I may give it a shot to see what I can accomplish.

Hey! I just started Turbo Fire on 11/5/2012! Just finished the first week and starting the second week now! How's it going for you?!

I'd love to connect with more people who are starting or who have been through it! It's been an array of emotions for me this past week, and I've been struggling to keep up with the moves in the video!

Hey there emoticon

I'm a die-hard and have been jamming to TurboFire for 10 months!! Don't give up, just keep pushing play! You will get better! When I started, I was the most uncoordinated soul there ever was ;) and it didn't take long to get in the swing of things emoticon and after all that time I still love it and can keep up!!!
It truly is amazing! Chalene will keep you going just when you think you can't go anymore!!

Good Luck with TurboFire and hope you get to LOVE it as much as I do!!

Hey Gals

How are you all doing?!

What ever you do don't give up!! I remember when I started ... Totally uncoordinated, I was never able to do aerobics for that reason, but I stuck with it cause I fell in love with Chalene's personality and I absolutely LOVE it!! You get better and better everyday!! emoticon

Beast & TF sounds awesome!! I have both, my husband is starting Beast after his surgery.. So prob the new year.. So at some point I'm sure ill have to try a hybrid out! Good Luck with the hybrid! Let me know how it goes emoticon "TurboFire Addict & need accountability? Join now. no restrictions!"

I just started Yesterday! I am new to all of it. I had no clue what I was doing, even with the new to class option. I do not have the fire stater class to learn the moves.

Thanks!! It's reassuring knowing I'm not the only one who can't seem to get the moves down in the beginning! I did the HIIT 20 today which went great! I also just got the E and E drink mix in the mail today too, which I could tell a 100% increase in energy to keep me pushing hard!
How long have you been into TF?

I hear ya, there are some moves I just can't keep up with! Sometimes I get so caught up in trying to mimic Charlene that I miss out. I can't go fast enough yet to keep up with all the kicks, lunges to the ground, etc. Have you tried watching Ally? She does the low impact stuff. Sometimes I will do her moves because I'm not fast enough yet to do everything Charlene does. But then I am also able to give it my all and still make it INTENSE! Especially when it comes to jumps and kicks, I alternate knee lifts/punches to jumps and high knees to kicks.

Remember that you will get there! The best feeling is when it just finally *clicks* and you are punching and kicking in time!

The first week went GREAT! Second week has been really good, I missed one day due to having to balance a new job in addition to my old one, but I'll get right back on it today!

Even having experience with kickboxing and dance classes, I'm having a hard time keeping up for sure. Sometimes I can't get the combo down, sometimes my legs just won't move that fast! I also struggle towards the end when we are doing a lot of cross punches. I want to keep good form in my legs to protect my knees, but my legs are SO fatigued I just can't stay on the balls of my feet enough.

So what I've taken to doing is following Ally, the girl who shows low impact stuff, when I need to. Low impact will still kick your butt if you make it!

Above all, I keep pushing myself through. Even if I completely loose where I'm at, I jump rope until I can find my spot again. KEEP MOVING!!! Like Charlene says, as long as you're moving, you're burning calories!

Hey SGalzy

I absolutely LOVE the HIITs ! They are my favs for sure! I have been doing TF since January of this year! I did complete 60 days of Insanity as well, but had add in TF on cardio recovery and rest days in order to get my TF fix in!! emoticon I can't seem to stay away from TF for very long! We'll see how I make out in December when I start a round of Les Mills Combat with my upline team emoticon

You WILL get the moves down, it just takes a little time for us uncoordinated ones ;)
You'll get better and better with each class.. just don't stop moving emoticon

Hope you're still pushing play emoticon

It's the first week of Body Beast, so I'm trying to follow it up with Turbo Fire. I need some modifications to the Turbo Fire schedule but it's been going good so far.
