ChaLEAN

A three-phase fitness program that burns fat and builds muscle.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

ChaLEAN Extreme is a DVD workout system designed by fitness guru Chalene Johnson. Johnson, who is also the creator of Turbo Jam, another popular at-home exercise program, has a strong background in martial arts, dance, aerobics and physical training.

In ChaLEAN Extreme, she has created a three-phase fitness program that is focused on resistance training that is designed to create a long, lean physique. Each of the 15 workouts is built around the ChaLEAN mantra of Muscle. Burns. Fat.

The DVD set also comes with support tools like a fat-burning food guide, a motivating audio CD, a healthy eats and kitchen makeover DVD, a resistance band and a set of body-fat calipers.

You can expect to see results in 30 days of using the ChaLEAN program.

DIET and NUTRITION

While the ChaLEAN program is really an exercise program, some special offers also come with it, like a fat-burning food guide that teaches which foods to eat to maximize fat-burning; and a kitchen and food healthy makeover DVD that includes Johnson's favorite recipes and nutrition tips for flavorful and healthy eating.

EXERCISE

The ChaLEAN three-part system is divided into a Burn, Push and Lean phase. In Phase One, the Burn phase, you learn how to correctly lift weights as a way to boost metabolism and burn fat. The Burn phase includes three different circuits that are progressive in intensity.

The second phase, the Push phase, you learn how to lift heavier weights, probably more than what you are used to in order to build muscle and burn fat.

The third and final phase, the Lean phase, includes routines and exercises that complete the entire program so that you are giving your physique a complete makeover.

Each phase also comes with a high intensity cardio workout and a flexibility routine. Two ab workouts are also included.

In total, you will receive 15 workouts that are divided among 15 different DVDs.

CONCLUSION

ChaLEAN Extreme is a comprehensive at-home fitness plan created by Chalene Johnson, who is also the fitness expert behind Turbo Jam.

ChaLEAN includes 15 different workouts that focus on burning fat and building muscle. The complete set also comes with diet and nutrition guides and other fitness and weight loss tools.

In order to get the most out of the ChaLEAN Extreme program, you must enjoy working out at home and have the proper exercise equipment.

Although the product's website claims that a test-study lost 60 percent of their body weight in using the program for 90 days, there is no guarantee that these results will apply to you.

To achieve the best results, it is probably best to combine the ChaLEAN program with the accompanying nutrition tools since no body makeover is complete without an exercise and diet component.

It's a great program and can be repeated over and over (every 90 days it starts over). It really makes you strong. No more endless reps. Lift heavy with the direction of these dvds and you'll get stronger in less time. It's really effective.
