My Next Step – ChaLEAN Extreme!


It’s official. I’m a Chalene-aholic.

I originally started TurboFire (my second Beachbody program after Brazil Butt Lift) in April. Beachbody are the folks who bring you workouts like amazing home workouts like P90X and Insanity, along with amazing supplements like Shakeology. I’ve been involved with the company as a Coach since I started TurboFire – since I was really ready to take my Beachbody “game” to another level. I found massive success with TurboFire, and have continued on with the same program for the past ten (!!) months. When I look back and really think about how long I’ve spent on a single program (and enjoyed every minute of it) I am just in awe. It truly has become my “soulmate” workout.

I didn’t want to stray far from Chalene, as her motivation and energy is one of the things that motivates me most in my workouts, so I began researching her other programs, such as TurboJam and ChaLEAN Extreme. The latter seemed like the obvious next step in my journey, as I’d like to continue utilizing the TurboFire program (along with the Advanced DVD’s I bought for it), and there are actually hybrid workouts available that contain both workouts (how perfect is that?!)

While TurboFire excelled in its intense cardio conditioning, ChaLEAN Extreme promises to be a “plateau-busting” workout that uses weight and resistance training (along with cardio) to burn fat – 60% of your body fat in 3 months, to be exact.

There are 3 “Phases” of training in the program that gradually build your strength and ignite your metabolism and burn fat long after your workout – even while you sleep!

  • Phase 1: BURN Start lifting weights to jump-start your metabolism.
  • Phase 2: PUSH Learn how to lift heavy to build the muscle and burn more fat.
  • Phase 3: LEAN Once you’ve built a foundation, Chalene brings it home with new routines and dynamic moves that melt the fat away.

And each phase includes these workouts for even better results:

  • Extreme cardio: Chalene ignites your metabolism further with super-intense cardio and strength-training routines, then rejuvenates and lengthens your muscles with an invigorating flexibility workout.
  • Core power: Targeted ab routines let you tighten and tone your abs for a rock-hard midsection

Since I ended up picking up the Advanced DVDs for TurboFire a few months after I started the program, I went ahead and got the full Deluxe package for ChaLEAN Extreme. I figured this way I have it all from the start, and there is no worry of placing another order in the future. Here is what is included in the kit:


15 extreme workouts!

  • chaleanextreme-002bBefore you start. Learn the proper technique for the program’s resistance moves.
  • Phase 1: BURN. Lift weights to jump-start your metabolism and break down extra fat reserves. “Lean Phasing” will help you see results every 30 days!

  • Phase 3: LEAN. Bring it home with new routines and dynamic moves that melt the fat off your body.
  • Get Extreme! Ignite your metabolism with super-intense cardio- and strength-training routines, then rejuvenate and lengthen your muscles with an invigorating flexibility workout.
