Chalene’s Live PUSH event
That’s right, Beachbody has “expanded” so to say by partnering with Powder Blue Productions.
First off most people are familiar with the products of Team Beachbody such as P90X, TurboFire, Insanity, Brazil Butt Lift and many more.
Some people though may not be familiar with Powder Blue Productions. This company is run by Chalene and Bret Johnson. Chalene is the trainer of Beachbody programs Turbo-Jam, Chalean Extreme and TurboFire and prior to partnering with Beachbody was working on her own company and production of workouts such as TurboKick, which is what the Turbo programs are based on, Hip Hop Hustle which is a choreographed dance type class, since Chalene loves to dance, and PIYO which is a strength Pilates/Yoga/Strength type training that is taught in health clubs and gyms and people can get certified to teach these programs.

Do I need Personal Development?
Personal development encompasses a wide range of topics ranging from your career to your relationships and home life. It also provides invaluable tips designed to help you focus on ways to develop yourself in areas key to your satisfaction and happiness. Whether you are interested in developing your work skills or communication skills, try these suggestions to focus on your own growth.
Do something everyday that gives you pleasure. You can get caught up in your day-to-day responsibilities and go days without doing something that you truly enjoy. Start now, by making a list of the things that you really like to do and commit to finding time in doing them. You will be much better able to handle the rest of your life, if you know that you will also be enjoying yourself, part of the time.
It’s never too early to learn personal development. Children need to be told and shown that they are capable of doing anything they set their mind to. If this is ingrained in them from the time they are young, they will develop a solid sense of positive self esteem that can stay with them throughout their life. Continue reading
This morning I just finished Chalean Extreme, a 90 day workout program which stresses about lifting heavy for less reps.
As with the other programs I haven’t lost much weight if any, but have noticed muscle definition that wasn’t there at the beginning of the program.
Because of doing these workouts for the most part “on the road”, my diet wasn’t exactly what it should’ve been according to the nutrition guide, but I am happy with my “toned”results.
As mentioned in previous blogs I continued with drinking my Shakeology and while on the road limited my P90x Protein Bars to one a day for a snack if needed.
Also even though I did use the P90X Recovery Formula, I used it only when I though I needed to and rarely used 2 scoops as it seemed that one usually did the trick.
Instead of doing the “Burn It Off” workout I substituted the Turbo Jam Fat Blaster that was included for two reasons. One the other was getting a bit boring and this was a good change of pace and shorter. Second I feel this is a good “warm-up” for Turbo-Fire which was just released and is the next workout on the agenda. The Fat Blaster workout has Interval training which is like what the basis of Turbo-Fire HIIT training is based on.
i would recommend this workout for someone to do, and if I were to do it again I would most likely do it as a “hybrid” type workout. There is a 4th phase which combines all the workouts but will take some time off from the regimen and wait for Turbo-Fire to arrive.
So till the next review
