SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Beachbody is proud to present its latest innovation in at-home fitness programs—TurboFire® Intense cardio conditioning—to help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy, fulfilling lives.

For those frustrated by the inconsistency of classes at the gym, TurboFire® delivers the best trainer, with the best music, and the best routine, all enjoyed from the best spot in the class – right in your own living room.

Physical activity and healthy nutrition have proven to be essential to overall health and mental well-being. However, in spite of over 33,000 fitness establishments in the U.S., 60 percent of American adults don't get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25 percent of adults are not active at all. Why? Some can't afford a gym membership or don't have time to go to the gym. Some lack motivation and simply get bored with their exercise routine. Some don't know how to exercise or at least how to get real results for their effort.

TurboFire® is the intense new cardio conditioning program from fitness innovator and motivator Chalene Johnson and Beachbody, the maker of the world famous P90X program. For serious cardio enthusiasts, TurboFire® is proven to help you get leaner with a revolutionary approach to training that can burn up to 9 times more fat and calories than traditional cardio programs. And with more than 20 smoking-hot music remixes, TurboFire® will push you past your limits for incredible results. And forget about rushing to the gym for the best spot in class. With TurboFire®, class starts right in your own home when you Push Play.

What Is the Science Behind TurboFire®?

TurboFire® workouts include High Intensity Interval Training or "HIIT."  These routines combine short bursts of intense exercise with quick recovery periods to ignite your metabolism. The result is a phenomenon known as the AfterBurn Effect, which enables you to burn fat and calories, even at rest, at an accelerated rate up to a full 24 to 48 hours after your workout.

In fact, studies show that with HIIT, you can work out for less than half the time you normally would doing regular cardio, and burn up to 9x more fat and calories.

Unlike the gym, TurboFire's influence on your health and weight loss doesn't stop when the workout is over. Chalene's team of nutritionists designed a comprehensive nutrition guide to make sure you are eating right for training this intense at the same time you are burning stored fat.  This is the healthy way to lose weight fast.
