Does Turbo Jam Really Work?

Click for More Info About Turbo JamThe Turbo Jam is an exercise workout program with Charlene Johnson.  This regimen utilizes kickboxing, body sculpting, and fun and enjoyable dance music.  The website says that studies have shown that with this workout, you can burn over 700 calories in just one 45-minute Turbo Jam workout.  The studies, they say, point out that this is twice as effective as walking, jogging, yoga, Pilates, and even circuit training.  Included in this workout is what they call Charlene’s “Elite 11” signature moves.  These are moves which are supposed to target the core and abs, and guarantee serious turbocharged results, they say.  The moves are inspired by dance and martial arts movements, each of which targets a specific muscle group or body part.  The result, they say, is that one gets a great body, at the same time enjoys overall balance and core strength, they say.

Turbo Jam Reviews

Yes - Amazing workout!
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I have used this workout to lose baby weight. I have three little boys. I used Turbo Jam after having each of my boys. For each of my pregnancies, I gained 50 lbs and was able to lose it all within 3 to 4 months of using Turbo Jam. I would workout at least 3 to 4 days a week. I am currently using Turbo Jam because I just had a baby. He is 2 months old. I have been using it for 1 month. I had a c-section, so I could not exercise right away. I have already lost about 35 lbs since having my baby. I am almost back into a size 1. I have toned up and have really lost in inches. I feel great! It really works. You just have to do it and not be lazy.

Yes - Fun, Funny and Effective
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

Just like the title says, this workout is fun, the exercisers make it funny and I found it very effective, even using modifications. (10 pounds the first month with no diet adjustment!)
The key is not to overthink it and worry if you look just like the instructors, just let the music take over. I would advise running through the videos once or twice in advance though, because Chalene’s cueing leaves a little to be desired in a few places. Nothing major. I’d recommend this for beginner/intermediate exercisers. More advanced might find more challenge in some of her other programs.

Yes - Great workout at home.

I bought this approx 4 yrs ago after having 2 kids, wasn’t losing the weight despite walking 2 hrs a day. After trying this, I lost 42 lbs, in 8 months? in the comfort of my own home. I went from a size 16 to a size 4. Workouts were fun and easy to do (I don’t like working out) and range from 20 min to 45 min. Then I did the 20 min workouts to keep in shape. I still use it, and love it! Note: They have a low impact option in the videos, which is great!

Yes - Love, love turbo jam!
5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars5 stars

I have done countless videos and found Turbo Jam actually fun because the music is fun and she makes exercise interesting enough to do it every day! I love the modifiers she shows because I have to use them due to previous back/ankle injuries. I’d say if you’re 20-40ish, you will love the music!

No - too talky

Chalene spends too much time talking and being cutesey. I didn’t care for the music. The moves are too jerky. I lost interest quickly so for me it didn’t work.

Yes - If you want to lose, it works

This is a high energy, upbeat workout. If you are totally out of shape, you will not be able to keep up. Select two or three exercises and do them regularly, anywhere. You WILL notice a big difference.
