“You. Are. A. Machine.”  Chalene Johnson, Turbo Fire

I have no idea why that phrase is so motivating but when Chalene Johnson says it, you believe it.

Fire 55 EZ is hands-down one of Turbo Fire’s best routines.

Here’s a reminder of what Turbo Fire is all about:

I burn over 450 calories in this incredibly fun workout that doesn’t require any equipment.

Let me tell you why this routine could be exactly what you’ve been looking for…

Important Stuff

Fire 55 EZ is definitely one of my favorites by Chalene Johnson.

Make sure you read what my choreography rating (Experienced) means.  This is a reference to how difficult or complex the steps are, not how intense the workout is.  Don’t let this rating discourage you from trying Fire 55 EZ.  Anyone can master this choreography after a couple of tries.

Chalene has great music and constantly (and effectively) encourages you to keep going with phrases like ‘Train like an athlete!’, and ‘You. Are. A. Machine,’ and my personal favorite ‘You Are NOT Tired!’

There’s a lot of kicking in this video which is so much fun.

There’s more than one way to get access to all of the awesome Beachbody programs like Turbo Fire.  I’ll give you three options at the end of this post.

Facts About the Main Workout 

Only One ‘Blast Drill’

There’s one Fire Blast Drill (a one-minute high intensity blast) with 27 minutes left (love that countdown clock) in the workout. The moves come at you fast and I usually miss the first rep (because I forget the steps) but she repeats the same drill after a (very short) break so you get another chance to do it.

*Some of the other Turbo Fire routines have several Blast Drills.  The Blast Drills are hard so it’s nice to know how many you need to psyche yourself up for before you hit play.

Keep Going

When you get to the third interval with the ‘Clockwork’ pattern and then the 7-step, it’ll take a few times to not mess that up. Be patient.  Just keep moving, you’ll get it.

Finale

There are two end sections that Chalene calls finales.

I LOVE the first one. She does some capoeira (if you’ve never heard of capoeira it’s ok, they aren’t hard) moves that you’ll remember from her Turbo Jam series. Keep your core tight as steel to do them right.

TIP-If you love Turbo Fire then look into Turbo Jam, too. It’s just as fun and effective.

The second finale is not as fun as the first one in my opinion but Chalene says it’s her favorite.

To Think About:

  • How does she keep her hair in that perfect side part the entire workout? It’s nuts.
  • After watching the testimonial segment at the end of the video I became a little obsessed with some of the crew members. Monica (mother of triplets), Shilo (badass military chic), and Toni (mother of 7, including a set of quadruplets–I’m still trying to decide if she actually birthed all those kids out of her perfect body) are all incredible athletes. I encourage you to watch the testimonials. I pick those girls out of the audience for inspiration when I’m doing Turbo Fire.

Final Thoughts

Fire 55 EZ is a great cardio workout and the perfect reason to consider investing in TurboFire.  

You’ll burn a ton of calories and don’t need any equipment.

You can find the TurboFire series over at Beachbody and in the Member Library of your Beachbody on Demand membership. And make sure you check out the price of Turbo Fire over at Amazon.
