Early life

Chalene Johnson Chalene39s Tips to Boost Confidence Chalene Johnson

Chalene Johnson started developing businesses at the age of 13 by investing in used vehicles via auto auctions and reselling them to the public. She studied justice, morality and constitutional democracy at James Madison Honors College at Michigan State University. After moving to California in the early '90s, she worked as a paralegal and applied to law school. At that time, personal training was becoming very popular and she began training before and after work. This was when she realized that she had a passion for fitness.

Years later, she created a group exercise class that combined dance and kickboxing. This led to the creation of TurboJam home fitness exercise program. Since TurboJam, Johnson has launched the very similar TurboFire, PiYo, and Hip Hop Hustle which are all available in gyms in the United States and Australia. She has also launched TurboFire, which is a Beachbody DVD exercise program. Chalene held class at the Irvine Center Drive 24 Hour Fitness in Irvine, CA every Sunday at 8:30am.

Turbo Fire

Chalene is most notable for creating the exercise video system known as TurboFire, developed and sold by Beachbody. She combined music, dancing, and martial arts as a basis for her workout system. She began working on her TurboJam idea in 1997, trying to perfect and develop her system. She continued to develop and promote it until she sold over four million products by 2006.

The Book: Push

On December 20, 2011, Chalene's first book PUSH: 30 Days to Turbocharged Habits, a Bangin' Body, and the Life You Deserve! was released by Rodale Books.
