If you’ve ever read reviews of Beachbody’s workout program Turbo Jam, it seems pretty obvious that there is a conspiracy. After all, how is it possible for so many people to completely rave about a product designed to make them uncomfortable? Exercise isn’t the most pleasant thing in the world. If it were, more people would be doing it. Yet all those Turbo Jam reviews act like this workout program is the best thing since sliced bread. So is it all lies? Is Beachbody using fake reviews to promote a bad product? Can people really love it that much?
Turbo Jam makes some pretty outrageous claims. The infomercial works hard to convince you that you will burn up to 1000 calories an hour with the workout program. On top of that, in conjunction with its Turbo Slim eating program, it claims that you can lose up to 10 pounds or 10 inches in 10 days! Those are some pretty impressive numbers if they are true. So what is the truth? People with a lot of weight to lose who work out a very high intensity may actually be able to burn 1000 calories and hour. The average person who works at a high intensity will probably only burn about 400-600 calories per hour doing Turbo Jam. That number is nothing to scoff at, but it’s not 1000 calories so some may be disappointed. Many who do the Turbo Slim eating program do lose a lot of inches from their entire body. The ten pounds are in the same category as the 1000 calories per hour. It’s unlikely to happen unless you have a lot of weight to lose.
So what about all of those great reviews for Turbo Jam? If people aren’t burning 1000 calories per hour or losing 10 pounds every 10 days, how can they love this workout program so much? Well, the great thing about it is that it is fun. In the beginning of the program, it is much more likely that you’ll lose inches than pounds. Yet people stick with the program and the pounds eventually begin to fall off. The point is that this workout program holds your interest long enough to allow you to see results. There is no sure way to know that the reviews are real or not real, but the visits to message boards reveals that everyday people who use Turbo Jam love it! Fitness discussion boards are full of Turbo Jam addicts who are using it to transform their lives.
The problem with it is that it gets people way too excited. All those reviews sound fake because there doesn’t seem to be a way that anyone can fall in love with a workout program. This is especially true for the people who try the program, but don’t like it. Some feel it’s too much impact for their knees. Some are disappointed that they aren’t losing a pound a day. Some just don’t like all the dancing that is in the workouts. Turbo Jam is not for everyone. But it’s hard to like this workout program without falling in love with everything Turbo Jam. That’s no conspiracy.
