Anyone Discouraged after Turbo Fire?? Can't get moves
This is the 3rd time i have restarted Turbo Fire and I truly want to succeed but I am so lost with the moves. Even with the training it just goes so fast. I dont want to quit because I really like the workout set up I just cant get the moves

Hi Amanda,

Mastering the moves is hard. Remembering or attempting to remember the cues is what got me through the workouts. It wasn't until month 3 that I was able memorize most of the moves and cues. Just keep on going. If you miss a beat, shake it off, jump in on the next beat.

Hey Amanda,

First thank you for your service (obvious from your picture)

sorry to hear you've tried 3 times and it sounds like you are a bit frustrated. I found Turbo fire to be a bit difficult at first also. I tried to watch the "first time to class" portion and felt like the class flunky!

From my own experience I'd recommend you stick to it and just keep moving! If you miss a move jump right back in to catch up - as long as your moving that's all that matters. You'll soon get most of the moves and the ones you miss - hey make up your own!

Dance like no one is watching --- cuz no one is!

Keep up the great work and keep pushing play!

I am just starting month 3 and every now and again I still mess up the moves. I think it took me about 3 weeks before I was able to more or less anticipate what was next (not that my feet were able to keep up...lol). I did the new to class option at least 4-5 times before I ventured off to doing it with the video. I was in the same boat, I did consider quitting, but I hung in there, and it has gotten easier. I PROMISE you will get it, and you are not alone in getting lost!!

This is really common. I had the same issue. Have you tried the new to class? It helps to break down the moves. How far have you gotten into the program. I also always tell myself that I am burning calories even when I mess up!

Are there certain moves or workouts that give you the most trouble?

Thank you for your service. It is very appreciated!

Happy to help with any questions!

Cheers!

same here! i almost ran for the hills. i had no problem with slim in 6 or P90x. but turbofire was fancy. but you know what after you get most of it and accept that you do it imperfectly and just keep moving, it does get fun!

good luck!
