I have read about the classes, checked out the website and have heard some raving reviews, so I thought I would open up my mind and give the workout a try.
The Fire 45 Class is a 45 minute cardio workout with kickboxing and dance inspired moves. The class is very fast-paced (I would recommend starting with the EZ classes if you are new to fitness) and high energy.
It takes place in a studio where the instructor (Chalene) is teaching a classes that you are "part of". Not the most original location, but I think it got the job done.
The next thing I noticed was the music. In my experience, music in exercise DVDs can be kind of, well, lame. Not the case here. It was fun and easy to move to.
She also does something she calls a "fire drill". This is a super intense 1 minute drill that involves burpees, jumping jacks and football drills. I was sweating buckets.
Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed this workout and I am looking forward to trying the other ones. As a trainer and instructor, it was nice to be motivated by someone else instead of doing the motivating. :)
The only thing is would have like to have seen a longer stretching section. I know that there is a separate stretch program, but when you are crunched for time, it is nice to have it incorporated into the workout.
I will be reviewing more workout from Turbo Fire as I complete them (and promise to take more pics!)
Next up: Lower and upper body!
Have you tried Turbo Fire? What do you think of it?
