Has anyone ever tried Turbo Jam?

Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone has ever tried Turbo Jam before. I am going back to Taiwan in February and I don't want to seem fat there. I am currently 5'4 and 125 pounds which is considered pretty big in asia. Does anyone have any tips for me to lose some weight within the 3.5 months? Did Turbo Jam work?

My roommates and I were on a big Turbo Jam kick just before last spring break. We would do the videos maybe 4x a week or so. I didn't find it challenging at all, even when I got really into it. I didn't see any major results, but I only did it for a month. It was kind of fun though, so that is a plus.

Not only do I love it...but I am a certified instructor ;). I can credit combo of Turbo Jam and eating right that helped me lose a lot of weight.

This is a very high intensity work out if you do it right!! get the weighted gloves when you are ready to "up the ante"

-Keep your fingers rolled in, thumbs over your fingers (not under!)
-be light on your feet
-WATCH YOUR KNEES!!! the one thing almost all instructors complain about is knee issues. don't PLANT your feet into the ground keep the "boxer shuffle" going and when you are doing twists (punch, cross, punch, knee up) be sure to twist your hips and make sure you are moving your feet so you don't twist your knee.
-when you are bringing your knees up for the "knee strike" lean yourself back a bit and rotate your hips to side but point your knee to the front...that will work your obliques.
-Punches: all your force should originate from your back/core...keep your tummy tucked and try to keep focus on your core throughout the workout.

HAVE FUN!! these videos are great - I've taken classes with Chalene (the creator) and she's freakin' amazing. enjoy!! (PM me with any questions)

GO Team Beachbody! LOL!

I think the videos are sufficient but the classes are an entirely new level. Anyone who has taken them in person, can vouch. I have a calorie counter and if you use the weighted gloves its very possible to burn 850 calories per 1 hour class.

I know JamieJ has taken classes and can attest they are really great workout (and she runs, like 7-8 miles with no reservations)
