  • Amazing
    Love, love this program. I am on week 4 and feel stronger already. Although I have not really lost weight yet, I feel so much better. I have done Turbo Jam, 30 Day Shred and numerous other DVD's but Chalean is the only one I can feel changing my muscle tone.
    Some days I am so sore but its a good sore. I never realized I could lift such heavy weights. I am hoping by the time I get thru the Lean phase I can drop 5 or so pounds to expose the newly formed muscles I can feel developing.
    Highly recommend for a serious workout. This is no joke, you sweat a lot!

  • Chalean is Extreme!!
    Beachbody has outdone themselves with the packaging of this product. The dvd's are housed in a quad fold folder. It is cardboard, but it is a nice feature. There are 14 actual workouts along with a motivational cd and band basics/kitchen makeover dvd. They are counting one of these as #15 which is unfair because its not actually a workout. Chalene is very encouraging and offers lots of advice and tips throughout the workout. She has a different demeanor compared to her turbo jam workouts. She's serious and all business in this series.

    Two books (yes actual books and not a leaflet/pamphlet) comes with the system. One book is based on nutrition and has lots of recipes. She talks of adjusting your intake with each phase in order to fuel your body properly. The other book talks about the system. You use this to follow your rotation and progress. There are worksheets you can copy or you can print them out from beachbody.com

    As with any beachbody product, the production is professional, crisp and clear. The appeal of the workouts is that they focus on different muscle groups using heavier weight then you are used to. The reps are few, the weight is heavy, the moves are effective. I'm in the burn phase at the moment and many moves are dual purpose. Ex. lunge with overhead press. I don't think this workout is for the person that has never worked out because your own knowledge and experience helps to adjust moves that do not feel comfortable. The push phase focuses on more individual movement, ex just a bicep curl. The lean phase from what I've read is also a killer portion and brings it all together.

    Beachbody's other expensive system is p90x. I've not used that system so I can't compare. Chalean Extreme is the most expensive system that I own and I'm not the least bit sorry I bought it....more info
  • best workout ever!
    I just started Phase 2 of this DVD set. I love it- I haven't worked out this consistently without finding excuses for a very long time. Chalene is an excellent instructor and her caring comes through the DVD. I have already lost inches and 3% body fat which is motivating me to continue. I started feeling stronger after just one week of working out. This is worth the money- follow the program and you won't be sorry. I am 50 years old and about 10 lbs. overweight - have tried many programs, machines and diets in the past - I never get bored with this workout and feel like I will most certainly reach my goals....more info
  • chalean extreme video series
    The Chalean Extreme DVD series arrived quickly and in good shape. So far,
    I really like the videos. I am learning to add heavier weight than I expected. Definitely feel it afterward. Chalean is not annoying like others. ...more info
  • Eh, not so much
    Okay, I'll admit that I reeeeeaaaaaaaaaaalllllllly wanted to like this product. Truly, I'm a huge fan of Turbo Jam and for what it is worth, I'm glad that I invested in this program simply 'cause it gave me an excuse to invest in some powerblocks. =) I'm currently at the tail end of the lean phase, with just a handful of workouts left (yes, I'm going to finish it, thinking about just doing the rest of my scheduled workouts in one clean swoop so I can move on to a new program with no guilt, lol). So, here's my overall impression, both good and bad.

    The Bad: To offer a little background, I was trying to use this program to kick start a little weight loss. I've always been active and fairly thin (5'8'', around 110-120 pounds)... pending further explanation, it's been a rough six months and I suddenly found myself 25 pounds heavier! Not such a huge deal, normally I would do exactly what I'm doing now- kick up the cardio and lift heavy for awhile. However, my experience with Chalean Extreme is that there is such an emphasis on weights that I wasn't getting the cardio that my particular body needs, plus I found that my muscle definition is surprisingly sparse, despite the fact that I'm lifting much heavier than usual (I usually favor blended workouts, cardio w/ 8-12 pounds. By the second week of each phase, I was lifting as heavy as or even heavier than Chalean). So, who knows? Yet again, not a biggie, but I didn't meet my goals and feel like I wasted almost three months (with spring in full gear and a ring around my tummy, sigh). Oh, almost forgot- for those of you who would inquire as to what my diet consists of (as you should), I haven't really changed a thing- 1200-1400 calories a day, veggie girl, super health nut lady (we'll leave it at that, lol). Anywho, on to the rant-

    Even though I would agree that the workouts are intense, I just don't feel like I'm doing enough! As a whole, I would argue that this program lacks appropriate cardio and (without a doubt) ab work. As of now, even with adding two more hours of cardio and tons of ab work, I've lost only eight pounds, my pants aren't any looser, and my thighs have definitely gotten bulkier... not exactly the results I was looking for. As a last addition to my rant- the program is just plain boring. Weight lifting can be for many, but I love it if I have the right music... this just didn't do it for me.

    The good: Chalean isn't wrong, muscle does burn fat. Although I didn't really care for this program, mostly due to lack of results (it's true that what works for one may not work for another. I still benefited from this program, just not at the pace that I'm accustomed to) and repetitive workouts that were boring the first time I did them (but, in defense of the program, I do bore quite easily. Only thing that keeps me coming back is heavy cardio and loud music... then weights, as something to rid myself of the adrenaline high!).

    Honestly, if I had to pinpoint those who may benefit the most from Chalean Extreme, I would say those who are new to weights, surprisingly. I started off with programs like the ones the folks from The Firm puts out... I was in great shape, but it took me years to develop the strength and definition that I desired. So, if you're looking at long-term fitness, building up a strong base with something like Chalean Extreme may be a stellar idea. However, I wouldn't put too much stock into the claims of heavy weight lost. So, put in your three months, build a strong body, and then hit the cardio hard-core. Yet again, pretty much what I do- this program was just a little slow paced for me.

    Hope this helps, I sincerely tried to offer an unbiased review.

  • ABSOLUTELY LIFE CHANGING!
    I have been an at-home exerciser for 15 years. My favorites were the Firm and especially FitPrime workouts ... I've never done a mapped-out program like this, but I am hooked! Chalene is the most inspirational DVD program instructor I've ever experienced. The work is HARD, if you follow it seriously, and it WILL absolutely CHANGE your body. I'm 50 and just started this program in late february - I'm still in the Push month - but I can't start my day without it. I have more energy, my body FEELS better, and today I had on a blouse that was form-fitting around the shoulders, and I could have sworn I had on light shoulder pads !!!! If you are serious about wanting to change your body and doing a program that will change your life, this is the program for you. Invest in the Bowflex dumbbells, you can easily change the weights you're using. I've become a HUGE advocate for women over 50 doing a program like this - there is NONE other like it and I am stronger, more compassionate, more deliberate in my work-decision making and ... this program just possibly is the best thing that ever happened to me - people will think you have hired a personal trainer. Want Michelle Obama's arms? This is the program that will do it, don't be fooled. ...more info
  • Exceptional product
    Anyone could enjoy this dvd set. EXCEPTIONAL product. Very motivational and easy for a beginner or someone who is more advanced. Gets you moving and helps build muscle for a leaner you! Highly recommend this!!!! I loved it....more info
  • Truly effective
    This workout is great because there is a different workout for each day of the week. The weight training portion is only about 35 minutes long each - done 3 times a week and the two cardio days are a killer - interval training and you know you are burning off alot of calories. I really love the countdown clock - for each exercise, there is a clock that shows how much time is left. I have lost some body fat already - only on week 2 - although I haven't been eating as well as I should - I can only imagine how much more I could be losing if I followed the eating plan as well. Chalene is fun, motivational, and really so comfortable to listen to. And I like the slow and heavy reps - even in the 2nd week, I feel sore after each workout (and I am already in pretty good shape from before as I am a runner).

    Definitely worth the money - I actually cancelled my gym membership b/c with this, I am consistently working out, unlike not being able to go the gym or not having the motivation to go.

    UPDATE: I am now on week 6 of this program and went from a 28% body fat to 24% within 6 weeks, and that is without "dieting." I lost about 4 inches from my waist, 1 inch from my hips, but only 4 pounds overall. This is exactly the kind of result that I wanted - lose body fat, look leaner and tighter, and not lose muscle mass. And I still look forward to working out every day. Chalene says in the beginning that there will come a time when I will look forward to my workouts. Well, I definitely do now. And this is from me, a busy mom of 3 little kids, who is near 40....more info
  • Amazing
    ChaLEAN Extreme is a truly amazing program. Not only does the box come with a guide book to help you keep track of everything, it comes with a healthy eating book, a thigh toner, a tracker for how much body fat percentage you have and even a motivational CD to go along with the DVDs. Each workout is intense, so they have a point when they say consult a physician before using. In just the first week I can FEEL the difference.
    I'd recommend this program to ANYONE who wants to get lean. It's incredible....more info
  • A great Program you will use over and over
    I purchased this program in December 2008 as my Christmas present to myself and it was one of the best gifts I could have given myself. This program is broken down into 3 segments, you have burn, push, and lean. Each segment you do for 30 days then go to the next circuit. Of each phase there is 3 weight lifting workouts that you do that focus on different muscle groups and you work till you reach failure. For the Burn and lean phase this is 10-12 reps for the push phase failure is reached in the 6-8 rep range. You will need a variety of weights for this program because your strenght will increase and you will see results quickly. I have 5# to 35# set and use all my weights now. Chalene recommends buying the select tech weights and for the price they are well worth the investment for this program. You will see your body fat melt away with this program and replaced with lean muscle mass. The more muscle you have the more fat you burn at rest during your day. The burn phase gets you started with proper form and the moves used to work you entire body. Push phase is where you go as heavy as you can and you can lift a lot more then you think. This was my favorite phase, very empowering. The lean phase is where you do combo moves and start to really see the body lean out and muscle take the place of fat. I am in the lean for life phase which is the 4th month of the series and you use all your workouts in a different combination each week. The cardio that comes with the basic set is called Fat burn intervals and burn it off for a reason. She also includes a yoga type stretch that will give your body a much needed break after the week of work you have ahead of you. There are two ab workouts that come with the basic package, extreme abs is my favorite and another ab workout. If you buy the additional dvd sold seperate you get Fat burn challenge, Get lean Intervals and I've got abs. This allows you to have some variety on the cardio days. This is not like turbo jam, I think it's better. You get a great trainer that is encouraging and very positive, which helps motivate you to keep pressing play and doing the workouts. One of the best at home fitness products I've purchased from Beachbody....more info
