I've been looking into stepping up my current fitness program thingie and have read some pretty good reviews for "ChaLEAN EXTREME Workout DVD Program: Burn Fat, Boost Your Metabolism & Get Lean" I'm not huge on the 'excercise at home' dealio, as I find I tend to draw a lot of my motivation from actually GOING to the gym...just wondering if anyone has tried this program, and if so, whether it worked/was easy to stick to/they liked it?

I've done the program along with many other Beachbody programs. I was skeptical of at home workouts myself too but now it's all I do. ChaLean is a great program. You really need to make sure you have adequate weights for it though. You have to do the workouts as prescribed so if Chalene says you only do 6 reps, you need the right amount of weight so that you're failing on rep 6. You can't have anything left in the tank or it won't be as effective as it should be.

I also found that if you're used to weight training and like to move quickly, it may test your patience because for many of the workouts, the reps are very slow and controlled. It serves to increase your muscle's time under tension which really gets a burn going in your muscles.

It's great when done properly Smile The workouts are good, most of them are under an hour or around 45 minutes max. Chalene is a great trainer, lots of fun, great music, and the nutrition guide is great too.

I know this is an old post but what did you decide on doing hayleyrobs?

ChaLean program can bring miracle in maintaining a fit body but it does require more money on weight rather than spending it for food. You have to spend a lot of money to buy more weights. Also it will be suitable only for people who are curious to loss some weight. Normal people will follow the plan for some initial stages and soon after they will stop following the program because of money problem.

If you are looking for a proper fitness program, make sure that you have read the fitness program reviews. You can learn about different methods and practices of losing weight by reading these reviews.
