    I’m no expert but I’d do total body conditioning.

    I ADORE turbo kick. Kickboxing of any kind makes you really feel like you’re doing something successful and you’ll see results.

    Also, I hate step, and I’m even pretty coordinated. Total body would be my second choice… I used to double up kickbox, then total body, when I had free gym membership at school. I looked so much better those days 😉

    Hard to say but im thinking step & sculpt or Total body. I would then do your eliptical at least 2 other days. Im currently taking a boot camp class and LOVE it. Im not very cordinated so the other step classes/kick boxing never worked out that well for me.

    Step and sculpt! You get a great aerobic step work out to start, and then do sculping for the second half. I always feel like I’ve gotten a complete workout when I leave.

    TBC is good, but I don’t feel nearly as tired. My TBC class is a full hour of sculpting.  I can’t stand turbo kick. I always feel awkward kicking around.

    I LOVE Turbokick. The instructor real makes the class though. The one I have gone to everyone was clapping and yelling,really high energy and fun. the music is stuff you hear on the radio. The bad thing is that it is a lot to learn the terms and choreography in the begining.

    TurboKick is a little intimidating to me, so I think to get started, at least, I’d go with the Total Body Conditioning.

    @hisgoosiegirl:  Yep! The class I love is on the West side and when we moved to the east side I tried the gym there and didn’t like it so I would drive across town just to go to Turbokick.

    I vote turbokick – sounds the closest to cardio. Most of your body weight is in your legs so it gives you a good resistance workout while getting your heart rate up. I hatehatehate weight lifting exercises so I would stay away from total body conditioning, sounds like that’s all that is.

    There are all kinds of different moves for the step -and the instructor should show you each one before you do it. It ends up being a choreographed routine, but it makes sense to my non-coordinated self because the step reminds me which foot I’m on. Also, a good instructor will call out the next move beforehand, so you’re never lost.

    The sculpting part usually consists of some leg work (typically lunges and squats), core work (vairious forms of sit ups, planks and back exercises) and upper body — lots of free weights.

    I like that it’s varied and I don’t get bored. A full hour of step gets really boring to me.
