Working out at home with my girl…

A lot of people ask me about the different workouts…what are they like, how long do they take, how challenging are they, etc. TurboFire is a fitness program that I had honestly never heard of before I started Coaching with Team Beachbody, but I am sure glad I know about it now!

TurboFire is a great mix of kickboxing, dancing (the booty shakin’ kind), plyometrics, and toning/core work. The workouts vary from 15 minutes to an hour, so unless it’s my rest day — it’s more of an excuse than a reason to say “I didn’t have time to workout.”

I will admit that when I first started with TurboFire, I got frustrated. I am the kind of person who likes to automatically know what she’s doing. As in, instantaneous perfection. (Yeahhhhhh, as a matter of fact, I DO let myself down on a regular basis with those types of expecations! Go figure!) That first week or two I got grumpy working out because I didn’t have the choreography nailed down.

Then a switch sort of flipped when I got more comfortable with it and now it’s GAME ON. It’s so much fun — you definitely can’t say it’s boring! A friend of mine comes over and works out with me three evenings a week while our boys are at soccer practice. Last night we were both just S-T-R-U-G-G-L-I-N-G. We’d had long days at work, neither of us had gotten enough water during the day, we were both physically tired — it was pretty rough. About 30 minutes into the hour long Fire 55 workout, we asked each other (out loud, not just with sad, pathetic looks — although those were definitely exchanged!) if we wanted to quit. We both decided to suck it up and I’m so glad we did. It wasn’t pretty but we got it done, and 353 calories later, I was sure glad we didn’t give up! We both said we will probably feel like rockstars, killing it in our next workout compared to that tough day!

Anyway – here’s a quick video to show you a bit of what it looks like. I took this on Sunday and had the joy of my six year old daughter’s company while I worked out. She’s a trooper and loves to get busy with her momma! 🙂 Enjoy!
