Intent of Fitness Program

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is intended as a continuation of the Turbo Jam fitness series. The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program offers the same high intensity workout sessions that combine cardiovascular exercises with mild resistance exercises, just like the previous Turbo Jam workout programs.

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is intended for those who want to get into better overall shape by losing weight, losing inches off their waistline, and becoming more visibly toned. The program is a combination of exercises, similar to most other exercise programs that are designed to condition the entire body.

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program includes the following:

  • Fat Blaster Cardiovascular Workout
  • 3T Body Sculpting Workout
  • Cardiovascular Party Mix 1 Workout
  • Lower Body Jam Workout
  • Cardiovascular Part Mix 2 Workout
  • Resistance Band

Primary Areas Worked

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program continues with Turbo Jam's focus on high cardiovascular calorie burning exercises designed to reduce weight and tone the muscles. The exercise workouts continue based on the Turbo Jam theme of kickboxing movements that will have you performing high knees and high kicks combined with upper body punching sequences. These movements are then followed by various other exercises such as squats, side lunges and abdominal crunches.

The intent of the exercise movements is to promote weight loss and tone your muscles by regularly exercising your entire body over a minimum of 30 days. In addition, the exercises are designed to improve your overall cardiovascular endurance, increase your muscle tissue and strength, and improve your balance and coordination.

Program Length/Frequency

Each Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite exercise workout ranges from 30 to 50 minutes in duration. Each exercise session is designed to be no more than 1 hour long and is performed no more than once per day. The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is a 30-day regimen and includes a beginner's and advanced workout schedule option.

The beginner's version begins with 4 exercise workout sessions per week and gradually works up to 5 sessions per week, with the workouts being alternated every other day. The advanced schedule starts with 5 exercise sessions per week and continues that way, with each week varying in what workouts you perform each day and on which days you perform them.

Effectiveness/Results of the Program

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is considered a high calorie burning fitness program. Its partner fitness program, Turbo Jam Maximum Results, backed by a university study, touted the possibility of burning up to 1,000 calories per exercise session.

The actual amount of calories you burn per exercise session, and the subsequent weight loss and toning results, will depend on your baseline fitness, your regularity in performing the exercise workouts, your level of intensity and your dietary intake.

Those who are overweight and extremely sedentary are likely to see the largest benefits as long as they adhere to the fitness program. Results are also dependent on whether or not you choose to follow a lower calorie diet. If you include a low calorie diet with your exercise routine you will improve your results by offsetting the caloric intake vs. caloric expenditure balance even further. In the end, you should expect to see a significant reduction in body weight, a decrease in your waist line, improved cardiovascular endurance, and increases in strength and muscular tone.

Equipment/Space Requirements

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness system is a DVD-based exercise program designed to be performed at home, so you can perform the exercise routines whenever you have time. The fitness program includes a resistance band and a thigh toning band which are used during the sculpting workouts.

It is recommended that you purchase an exercise mat to perform the ground exercises, and a set of dumbbells to enhance your cardiovascular and sculpting workouts. The space required to perform the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is similar to that of most other fitness programs, with only a modest amount of floor space being required to comfortably perform all the exercise routines.

Physical Requirements

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program can be performed by basically anyone. The program initially starts slowly so you can learn the exercise movements. In fact, the DVD instructions advise you to perform the exercises at your own pace and increase the intensity only when you are physically ready to do so.

The Cardio Party Mix workouts are rather sequential in their routines and are designed to promote a high caloric expenditure, provided that you are able to keep up with the high tempo pace. For those who who enjoy performing a high energy aerobic routine, the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program may be ideal for the obtainment of your personal fitness goals.

Support

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program has the same customer support as the other Turbo Jam and Beachbody products. The support includes:

  • Online support FAQ database
  • Live chat support
  • 24/7 support telephone line
  • Online email customer support
  • Online message boards

Cost

The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program costs three payments of $ 19.95 plus $ 9.95 for shipping and handling. After taxes, the program's total cost is approximately $ 70.00 and includes five exercise workout routines, a resistance band and a thigh toning band.

The price of the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is well within the normal price range for a Beachbody product that includes exercise workouts and the exercise equipment necessary to perform the routines. The cost of the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is easily justifiable for those who are looking to begin an exercise routine and want to start by trying a total body cardiovascular workout program that places a light emphasis on strength training.

Summary

Similar to the Turbo Jam Maximum Results fitness program, the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite program provides a solid exercise routine that is designed to produce results as long as you adhere to the workout schedule. The Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program promotes the burning of a high number of calories, as many as 1,000 calories per workout session. Burning this many calories within a single workout is rather rare and should not be expected unless you perform the exercises with an extremely high level of intensity.

However, if you regularly perform the exercise routines with a moderate level of intensity, you will see a dramatic improvement in your overall health, a reduction in excess body weight, improvements in cardiovascular endurance, increases in muscular strength and tone, and improved coordination, balance and flexibility. Hence, for individuals that enjoy workout routines performed at a high tempo, the Turbo Jam Fat Burning Elite fitness program is a solid choice.
