Ive done both and turbo jam all the way. Also ive done brazil butt lift and it helped my butt and love handles area. If you have any questions let me know, im not a beachbody coach. If you are in good shape/workout a good amount already i would say turbo fire. In 8 weeks ive lost almost 13 inches and all of it in stomach and thigh area.

Wow sounds like some awesome results! I am not in very good shape, I don't think I've worked out since probably September-ish. Do you think it would be too much for me?

How much weight do you need to lose also what workouts have you done? You can always follow the modifier in both turbo programs, i just would say you get more results from fire but there is a lot of jumping. So with turbo jam once you get comfortable with the moves make sure you push yourself. I just knew i needed to go beyond turbo jam for the last bit of toning. But turbo jamis awesome

I'm woefully uncoordinated so I have not done Zumba... I have done TJ several times. I love it. It is not difficult to follow at all and even non dancers ( like myself) can do it well.

Not much really, maybe 5-10 lbs. I guess I'll just have to jump into something and find out for myself! Thanks for the info! :)

Ohh I know how you feel with being uncoordinated. I had a hip-hop workout dvd once answer I gave it away cause I just couldn't get my body to move like that lol

I'm about 3 weeks into Turbo Jam and I love it.  I have never been able to really stick to Zumba.  I have a much easier time catching on to TJ, and Chalene Johnson just rocks =)
