Back in the day, the issue with some workouts - especially those "targeted workouts" - was that it didn't work enough of your body and your body would adapt to them too quickly. Nowadays, the issue seems to be not the workout but the participant.

Yeah, you and me.

Turbo Fire w/ workout queen Charlene Johnson is such a workout. It's from Beach Body...P90X, Insanity, Hip Hop Abs...yeah, these guys don't mess around.

Features & Claims - Turbo Fire

This isn't one of those "$19.99 but wait there's more," type products that are mean to accompany a full workout. It's a, "here's a full system with a schedule of different workouts, diet plan, consult your physician," kind of workout. Granted, Turbo Fire is tiered so you can work your way into your results, but in the end, Turbo Fire provides the way, you have to make the means.

According to BeachBody.com, Turbo Fire claims the following features a n 11 DVD set:

  • Get Fired Up - an introduction to the program
  • Fire 30 Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • HIIT 15 Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • Fire 55 EZ Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • Fire 45 Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • HIIT 20 Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • Fire 45 EZ Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • HIIT Class / Stretch 10 Class
  • Sculpt 30 Class / Tone 30 Class
  • Stretch 40 Class / Stretch 10 Class (for newcomers)

HIIT? Are you spelling that right?

Yeah, for a change, I am. HIIT stands for, "High Intensity Interval Training." It's quick workout bursts that give a jolt to your metabolism, making sure it's paying attention. The bursts help keep your body from getting too used to the workouts, brings up your heart beat and your metabolism, and helps get maximum results from your workout.

But Are People Getting the Most Out of the Workouts?

What's cool about this is that there are tons of youtube videos from people who are using the workout. And because it's a part of Charlene Johnson 's Turbo Kick line that started back in gyms of southern California back in the mid-late 1990s, there are legions of fans who flock to it. Check out our playlist on the left of people who just love getting their Turbo on. There are a couple in there, the beginning and the end, that have shown trials and tribulations we believed. And, no, not all of them are at the end of their journey. Some are still mired in their own fear (video #5). It's compelling stuff.

Review - Turbo Fire Complaints, Frauds, Rip-Offs, Scams...

Order Process: Overall, the order process for Turbo Fire seems to have gone smoothly. There are a few overall complaints for the parent company, Beach Body, but the process itself has been okay. That hasn't been the issue.

Product Performance: We haven't seen issues where people are complaining of packaging or product issues. So far, so good. That's not our concern. Here's our concern:

Beach Body / Chinese Product Scams

The parent company, Beach Body, has been the subject of a few product scams from a Chinese company that has been copying the products and distributing them online. So, yeah, when you go to buy Turbo Fire, make sure you are buying from an official site.

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
