Turbo Fire...too hard on the knees?
i recently decided to step up my workout routine, which usually consists of running and turbo jam four days a week. i saw a commercial for turbo fire and ended up borrowing it from a friend to try it out. i've been doing it for about a week now and LOVE it! however, i was a little alarmed by the warning that appears before the workouts which states that anyone who has had any previous knee or back injuries should not attempt turbo fire. so, this is my dilemma...i was a ballerina for 13 years, a soccer player for 8, and ended up having knee surgery after an injury when i was 16. i am now 26 so it has been 10 years but i have had some minor discomfort since then. oddly enough, my knees started feeling better once i was working out on a regular basis again. i would rather not spend the money if i am going to have to return the set so i just wanted someone else's opinion. thanks for your time!

These are legal notices to minimize company liability. Not to be disregarded, but not applicable to everyone who ever twisted their knee. Certainly if you had major reconstructive surgery and 2 years of rehab, skip it, but if you can run and do turbo jam and if your knee feels better after exercise you should feel confident in starting this program. Take it easy at first, and always land correctly-on the toes to minimize knee impact. Keep the knees soft as Shaun T says.
