Last year I tried out the P90X home workout system from Beachbody.com and had some decent results on it.Â I liked the hardcore nature of the workouts (pull ups and push ups, yay!), and the no-nonsense cueing from the instructor, Tony Horton.
That’s why I’m a little leery about trying out the Beachbody Turbo Jam kickboxing workouts.
I have heard good things about it from my sister, who is the princess of DVD home workouts, but there’s something that just scares me about the program.
The instructor and all of the TJ posse behind her just look so $%#!! peppy that I can’t bring myself to put the first instructional DVD into my player.Â I can’t help it.Â Maybe I was traumatized in a past life by a bevy of chipper cheerleaders or something, but perky rah-rah types have always struck me as a little, well, phony as hell.
I’m posting about this openly so I can’t back out of it.
Tonight, despite my aversion to bouncy flouncy pouncy workouts, I *will* give Turbo Jam a fair shake.
