“Turbo Kick® is a one-hour, energy-packed cardio workout that incorporates kickboxing elements while PiYo™ is a fun exercise that blends Pilates and yoga movements,” said Denise Schuster, TAMIU associate director of Recreational Sports. Chalene Johnson, creator of Turbo Jam®, Turbo Kick® and PiYo™, also recently announced that Turbo Kick® participants can burn up to 800 calories in one hour.

“These exercises provide a good way to get fit and healthy in a fun way,” Schuster explained, “The benefit of receiving the instructor training is that once you train, you have the possibility to teach these classes at fitness facilities around town.”
