Turbo Fire is the latest workout from Chalene Johnson, creator of Turbo Jam and ChaLEAN Extreme. Turbo Fire is due out in the spring of 2010. Turbo Fire is a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) program that will ignite your metabolism. You will be asked to push harder, find it in yourself to give more, to not hold yourself back, and challenge yourself in a whole new way.
With HIIT you are asked to give your maximum effort in short bursts followed by a recovery period. It is intense and it is challenging. You will get such an intense workout in a short period of time that your body will burn more calories throughout the day trying to recover. Studies have show that the after burn effect can be as much as 9X high for burning calories and fat. HIIT demands that you push yourself out of your comfort zone.
There some major benefits of HIITin TurboFire. One is the shorter amount of time you need to train to see some great results. The second benefit is the amount of oxygen your body uses while training. This is especially great for athletes and cross training.
HIIT uses fast twitch muscles, which are used in sprinting, as opposed to slow twitch muscles which are used in steady state cardio such as running a marathon. A sprinter has more muscle mass as opposed to a marathon runner who often has no muscles definition.
With TurboFire you can “attend” a HIIT “class” everyday, with the best trainer, the best music, and have a place in the front row. All without ever having to leave the house to get the best workout ever and get the leanest most tone body.
