My Winter Workout Plan

I am not really good at getting out of the house to workout in the winter time and that usually puts a damper on my workout plans. Last year I bought a treadmill in January to encourage working out at home (and it worked!). This year I will be doing DVDs. A little over a month ago I started doing the Chalean Extreme/TurboFire hybrid schedule. The entire program  is five months long so it will take me through the winter. Chalean Extreme is a program for strength training while TurboFire is cardio conditioning with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I got these programs back in the summer while the P90X/ Insanity craze was going on. They are all sold by Beachbody. I took pics while I opened them and saved them just for you :-). So here goes:

Both programs come with a workout schedule/guide and a meal plan book. The TurboFire kit has a bunch of DVDs so I didn't take a picture of all of them. A few other items that came in the kits are two lower body bands, a resistance band, a tape measure and body fat calipers.

The first month of the program was a recovery month for people who completed another program right before starting this one so I supplemented the workouts with walking or running on my treadmill. That worked out pretty well and I lost about 4 lbs. I feel like I lost a lot of inches but I haven't taken my progress measurements as yet. I started the second month this week and it's a little more hectic. My body is definitely feeling it so far. I will keep you all updated on how it's going.

Share: What are your workout plans to get you through the winter?


  1. I am doing turbo fire, I am only on day 4 but I am sure that I will continue for the next three months because it isn't a boring workout. Before Turbo fire I did some Yoga Booty Ballet workouts and some Turbo Jam workouts. I also like doing Walk Away the Pounds especially on days when I don't feel like working out. I look forward to seeing your progress :D

  2. Very cool Shannie! How was YBB? I haven't seen any reviews on it but I like Turbo Jam. Thanks for following!
