Beachbody’s Turbo Jam is the first cardio workout I enjoyed! It is intense, but it’s dance-based so it’s fun. It works my muscles to tone them than I ever thought a cardio workout would because you’re constantly squatting, twisting and turning!
Unlike other Turbo Jam reviews, this post is based on us actually doing the program and answering the questions we had in the beginning. (updated 2020)
You’ll find out what the workouts look like, the Turbo Jam schedule and how you can try TurboJam for free for 2 weeks!
Turbo Jam Reviews
What do Turbo Jam workouts look like?
It’s a mix of kickboxing and dancing. It’s definitely a cardio workout, but it does include toning moves like squats, lunges, and punches.
Each routine blasts calories with kickboxing and cardio moves and tones your body up with body-sculpting moves mixed in.
Here’s a low-quality preview of what the workouts look like.
This section is called” Learn and Burn.” This is where you master the 8-Count and then put it to music after.
If you possibly need a more advanced workout check out our guide comparing Turbo Fire vs Turbo Jam & Turbo Kick.
How many calories does a Turbo Jam Workout Burn?
Typically I burned about 10 calories per minute, but you can burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour! The exact amount depends on your weight, height, and current fitness level.
I’ve been working out for years and am short so my calorie burn will be smaller than say a beginner with 50+ lbs to lose.
If you want to see a closer estimate of the calories burned during a Turbo Jam workout, check out this calculator on Spark People.
Who is this workout program for?
It’s is a great workout for beginners wanting to lose weight, tone their muscles (versus building big muscles) and have fun.
Some beginners have even lost 10lbs in 10 days with the workout and meal plan.
Turbo Jam Calendar
The Turbo Jam Schedule is 6 days a week for 20-50 minutes.
I love that they include a beginner and advanced schedule. So month 1 is getting down the basics, and by month 2 you’re onto the harder calendar.
There is also one my Turbo Jam Calendar out there that is even more advanced!

What equipment do you need for Turbo Jam?
You don’t need any equipment! You will just need about 6 feet of room to do the routine.
If you want to make the workouts harder, you can wear weighted gloves.
An option is to use light weights on some of the sculpting workouts as well.
You do receive a full nutrition guide with Turbo Jam though. It’s based on calories, and it has you eating 5 healthy meals per day.
You also receive a 10-Day Quick Start which is absolutely amazing. It’s lower calorie, but if you can try it — it’s worth it!
