When you’re stuck in a workout rut, a fun, exciting exercise class is a great way to add a little energy back into your workout routine. Turbo Kick, created by Chalene Johnson, is a high energy class that mixes hip hop with kickboxing and burns up to 1,000 calories per hour.
“Turbo Kick challenges participants physically as well as mentally,” said Susanna Kalnes, a Chicago-based Area Promotions Director for Powder Blue Productions. “It’s a great cardiovascular workout because it improves psychological well-being and is proven to help participants have fun while losing weight.”
Since its creation in 1997, Turbo Kick has developed a huge following and inspired hundreds of people to lose weight, tone up and achieve their health and fitness goals. The Turbo Kick workout consists of a sport specific warm-up, sections devoted to punches, kicks and combination workouts, a high-paced interval section, recovery and a high-energy finale. Each round is set to motivating music that will make you want to move.
