Turbo Jam: Cardio Party

Chalene Johnson
Year Released: 2005

Categories: Boxing/Kickboxing/Martial Arts

The Good:

High energy, but not exhausting. When I was finished, I was sweating, but not gasping for air.

A good length, about forty minutes. I'm always on the lookout for workouts that deliver a intense overall workout in less than an hour.

Great music, as has been mentioned before.

The Bad:

No cueing! If you are accustomed to picking up dance routines, this may not be a problem for you. For me, it is. I need solid, step-by-step cueing and that is non-existent in this workout.

The kickboxing moves and form are definitely Chalene-style. If you like your kickbox classic, with perfect moves and great attention to form, you may raise an eyebrow at this!


This workout was pretty free-form. You may like that, you may not. It's definitely not a precise, drill like workout.

Instructor Comments:
Extremely enthusiastic and talkative. I didn't find either of these attributes annoying, as they fit in well with her workout style. However, the viewer is warned. I think you could call her the yin to Karen Voight's yang.
