          It's like kickboxing and body sculpting put to really hip music, it's amazing!

          It's so energyzing and the moves are really awesome to work the abs especially. The choreography is NOT hard at all (the basic videos anyway) and you have so much FUN doing it!

              Awesome. I'll look into that. We have p90x- I'm kinda tired of doing it. It's kinda too "manly" if that makes sense. I would prefer something that's a little more fun- just not push ups and curls constantly, you know? I could def switch it up.

                there is the "lean" version of p90x. I agree, p90x can be too manly. I mostly focus on certain DVDs. i don't do the pushups. I love the legs DVD, cardio K, and arms.

                turbo jam is a blast!!! I've done it 3 times now & I can't wait to jam again tonight. My abs are so sore afterwards. I might have to change the title of my thread, because i'm loving turbo jam. Although I still love my p90x dvds. I just do a mix of them. Somedays we turbo jam, some days we p90x. Somedays I do a pilates videos. Somedays I plop in front of the computer & eat. variety :)

                    Morgan, I found a kindred spirit!

                    Ok - so tell me - should I get TurboJam and the Cardioblast for Beach Body (these are by 2 different companies?)

                    Right now I use the Billy Blanks Fat Blasting Cardio series (the kind with the bands, though I tend to need more cardio then provided in the dvds (and I'm lazy about just doing the muscle focused ones b/c I like to get my endorphin high).

                    I also do DDR once in a while when I'm bored of Tae Bo.

                    My favorite workout is running (nothing beats it for cardio high) and doing to stairs (though I have to limit stairs to 2x a week b/c of my knees).

                    I used to love step aerobics (I know, old fashioned) but I have don't have dvds (only videos and a step) and my gym canceled all the step classes.

                    Anyhow, I need new dvds that are cardio focus (prefer minimum 40 minutes of cardio not counting warmup/cooldown). Are the TurboJam and CardoBlast long and really cardio focused?

                      Turbo Jam Cardio party sounds perfect for you. it's 40 minutes long & so much fun. It's part of the current turbo jam set for sell at the beach body website. Then there is a 20 minute Ab jam that is also fun. It's to really good bollywood type music.

                      I also enjoy lifting weights so i love p90x, but it sounds like you prefer cardio. When I lift weights I do it while watching tv so I'm distracted. or I talk to someone the whole time.

                      I love step aerobics too. I was so angry when gyms started to move away from step. I've tried to find a good step DVD, but haven't found one. I was a member of a gym almost 2 years ago that had great step classes, but it closed down. There was a big void left that p90x & now turbo jam have filled.

                      This is the set I have. I'm not sure what cadio blast is.
