TurboFire - Spring is Here, Are You Beach Ready???
new year workout motivation accountability
3/21/13 7:16 AM
Hello! My name is Hope, and I started TurboFire in July of 2012. I am 45 years old and 5'2". Since July, I have lost 35-40 pounds and have dropped from a size 10 to a 4. I owe all of this to TurboFire and Chalene Johnson. I have tried MANY, MANY workouts throughout my lifetime, and this is BY FAR the best as far as results and motivation. I have completed the program, but it is still my primary workout because I just love it and I love Chalene. I would love to help anyone who wants to start TurboFire and is already doing the program with motivation and accountability. Come join our thread and let's all do this together, it really helps to have other people to talk to about your ups and downs and it's also great to have people to share in your successes!

Nutrition
• If you want to see great results, you have to focus on your nutrition as much as the workouts. Nutrition plays a key role in how you will reach your goals and attain the new and better you! Be prepared by getting a solid nutrition plan in place prior to starting. You can do this week-to-week or even plan out your entire month. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

• Shakeology is a great way to meet all of your nutritional needs! As a meal or a snack it fuels your body with everything it needs in order to BRING IT everyday!

Track your progress
Where are you now? Where do you want to be? Have Goals!

• Nothing is more important or motivating than to see where you started and how you are progressing along the way! It is so CRUCIAL that you do the following BEFORE you begin:

• Take your Measurements
• Take your before & after pictures

Also utilize the tools that TBB provides. Complete your profile, and track your measurements and weight online.

Pre-Workout

• These workouts are intense! The right fuel will help your body "Dig Deeper!!!" with the intensity you need! If you eat a pre-workout meal, is very important to wait about an hour before you work out. Eat too soon and you could end up losing the meal instead of bringing the intensity!

• If you workout first thing in the morning like I do you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out. I drink about 1/3 of my recovery drink prior to working out. It gives me all the energy I need to complete the toughest workouts.

Post-Workout

Keep in mind the first week is exceptionally rough! Expect to be sore and tired: Do not give up! Your body will adapt quickly and in no time you will start seeing some crazy results.

• Recovery: After an intense TurboFire workout, it is vital to recover the right way. I cannot stress enough how important this is. By adding a recovery drink immediately after your workout, you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while your body recovers. Intense exercise will burn off glycogen stores in the muscles which leaves the body without its primary source of energy. The longer you are in this state, the greater the chances your body will panic and may actually breakdown your existing muscle to create more glycogen—the exact opposite of what we are working for! Plus low blood sugar levels in the brain will lead to fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, depression, etc. The Beachbody Recovery Drink will replenish your muscles with glycogen, you will not only avoid muscle breakdown, but you will promote muscle growth and keep your energy levels up. The Beachbody Recovery Drink is a great product and I highly recommend it.

• Accountability: Post your accountability DAILY on the message boards! This is the key to staying motivated. Here is an interesting statistic I’ve noticed over the past couple of threads I’ve been in. Out of all the people who join the thread and commit to the workouts, less than 20% will complete the full 60 day program! But what I found is, of those of post every day they are 90% likely to complete the program and transform their lives.

The message boards and forums are a great way to meet others that are going through exactly what you are and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Your forum buddies will have tips and information that has helped them and could help you as well. You will be doing the same in no time!

So ready to get started? First step, post your commitment to join the team, and second, add me as a buddy and I'll give you more important information. I look forward to getting to know you and seeing the new you!

I started Turbo Fire a few weeks ago. I am starting week 4 tomorrow. My first beachbody workout love was Insanity (completed by second round before starting Turbo Fire), but Turbo Fire is so upbeat it's addictive as well. I really do look forward to the classes each day. Great change of pace. emoticon

Wow, congratulations on completing two rounds of Insanity! My husband has done that also, so I know the work you put into that!

You're right, TurboFire is VERY upbeat, I think that's why I like it so much...and there's so much variety in the DVDs I don't feel like I'm doing the same thing over and over!

Good luck starting week 4 tomorrow, let me know how it's going!

Okay, my accountability post for the day...I have finished the TurboFire program and I went back and did the advanced weeks again, so now I am on a maintenance program where I kind of pick and choose my workouts...so, today I did the TurboFire 45 EZ DVD, one of my favorites! I still get such a great workout and lots of sweat!

Good morning...I did kick it, did the Fire 45 DVD this morning and got a great sweat! I love it when Chalene says towards the end, "Do it like your life depends on it, like you're doing it for your family!" Great motivation!

Words of wisdom from Chalene...when your friends ask how you're losing weight (and they will if you stick with TurboFire!), this is the answer!
