TurboFire – My New Exercise Journey

Today, I started a new workout regime – TurboFire!!!  After having so much success with Power 90, I wanted to take it up a notch, and I have found it with TurboFire.  I’ve completed one day, and man oh man was it intense!!!  Non stop cardio, fast paced, moving to the beat, lots of sweat, but most of all, a GREAT time.  Yes, it’s a workout, but it’s also a party.  Chalene Johnson, the same one who ran the 30 Day Challenge, is the mastermind behind TurboFire.  

Today’s classes included Fire 30 and Stretch 10.  The music is amazing, like you’re at the club or dance hall, and it’s like a bunch of friends getting together to have fun.  It was a great workout, and if all the other workouts are like this, I am in for a treat.  A word of caution – this is an INTENSE cardio workout.  Your heart rate will increase, and you shouldn’t do this workout routine if you a)can’t do a full month of 30 minute intense cardio 3 times a week; b) don’t have a healthy heart or c) have knee or joint problems.  

I do love the fact that there’s the “New to Class” option that takes you through some of the routines step by step and gives you a chance to become familiar with the workouts.  I thought I was going to be too good for the “New to Class” but I’m glad I did it.  I was stumbling on some of the routines, but I picked it up and got back into it.

Tomorrow’s class is HIIT 15 and Stretch 10. It should be another great workout.  I might not post every day, but I will report on my progress.

Until next time, be well.

Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Challenge Graduate

On January 1, I started yet another challenge.  Chalene Johnson, fitness guru, put a challenge forth to her followers and fans.  We give her 30 days and she will provide us with the tools, skills, support and knowledge to become more organized and to reach our goals quicker.  I have to admit, I was very skeptical.  Not necessarily of the challenge, but whether or not I would stick with it.  I can’t say why I would think that, seeing I completed the Power 90 Boot Camp and loved every minute of it.

In any case, here is my story with the 30 Day Challenge.

First off, I completed the entire challenge.  A whole 30 days of diligent hard work, developing new habits, recognizing areas that need improvement and having a written out plan for my future and my success.  It was scary, exciting, invigorating, uplifting, amazing and most certainly life changing for me.  I let go of my inhibitions, was willing to learn and used the techniques in my every day life and business.  The results have been phenomenal.  In 30 days, I accomplished a few of my small goals, I defined my Push Goals, learned the importance and necessity of creating a To Do list EVERY DAY and prioritizing my life.

During the challenge, I learned to let go of my fears and share with others my goals.  That literally opened the doors to opportunities I never would have thought possible.  I added members to my team, reached new levels of accomplishment in my business, found support in old and new friends and what I believe to be a new found respect from my peers.

I learned that you should NEVER stop learning, ask questions, ask for help, seek the support of others who believe in you and always keep pushing forward.  The only person responsible for my actions, or lack thereof, is me.  Because I took action and stuck with this challenge, I found myself more confident in myself.  I now believe that I can and WILL reach my Push Goal of Senior Director in my business by this August, get out of debt, and help to provide the life my family deserves.  

Throughout this challenge, the level of support was more than I ever could have imagined.  I’ve had several people contact me asking about the challenge and whether it’s something they can do.  Wow – what a great feeling.  I also gained some new friends – fellow 30 Day Challenge members who reached out to me and wanted to get to know me better.  

I can’t thank Chalene Johnson enough for this amazing challenge.  It has opened my eyes to the many possibilities and opportunities out there for me.  I’m not done, either.  Starting tomorrow, February 1st, I am redoing the challenge again.  Hey, like I said, you should never stop learning, and I’m sure by doing the challenge again, I will learn something new.  In addition to redoing this challenge, I’m also participating in another one.  A few of us are reading “Unstuff Your Life” by Andrew Mellen, in an effort to organize my home, office, and life.  Doing both at the same time should prove interesting and at the very least, exciting.
