ChaLEAN Extreme Launch!

For Coaches Only -- The ChaLEAN EXTREME Launch Party sign ups for Saturday Jan 3rd got over 100 sign-ups in the first few hours after we opened the site!

Here's how it works: Chalene Johnson will be hosting a nationwide launch party on January 3rd. She'll have her party at her house, while coaches who sign up have their party at their house. EVERYONE will upload photos and videos to party-central to celebrate the hottest product of to meet the New Year's Resolutions of 2009.

Space is limited; Only 1,000 coaches will be accepted for the launch party. Sign up and you get two of the first units of this new product shipped by mid-December plus the special launch party-pack. (I would suggest keeping one of the units for yourself, and either giving the other away to someone as a prize at your party, or awarding it to the first person to sign up to be a new coach at your party.)

We'll also pick two participating coaches at random who will win one of the giant 42" high definition TVs used ON THE SET of the workout videos -- a Chalene fan/collector's dream!

And the Coach who signs up to host a Launch Party and sells the most ChaLEAN Extreme kits from Dec. 1st to Jan. 10th will win a workout session with Chalene—IN PERSON! She'll come to your town and you can throw the biggest fitness party ever!

This is a great event to kick off the new year, and get people you know in on the workout system that is all about one single thing: MUSCLE BURNS FAT!

Reservations are being taken now! If you're a coach, click here to get yours!

And if you're not a coach -- sign up now so you can participate in the Beachbody Revolution that is going to take off in 2009!

I wish I could do the Launch Party but I live in the middle of nowhere and wouldn't have more than like 3 people there anyway. So, when does the system come out to coaches who can't host a party?

Carl -

Does this: "And the Coach who signs up to host a Launch Party and sells the most ChaLEAN Extreme kits from Dec. 1st to Jan. 10th" mean that TBB will be doing pre-orders to customers through coaches starting 12/1?

Thanks!

Actually, the rules are that the Coach who sells the most product from the time it goes on sale on Dec 12 through Jan 10 will win. So (a I am told) Dec 12th is the big day!

Thanks for another exciting opportunity, Carl! :) Can't wait!!!

I know the build up to this launch has some crazy hype....

Thanks again for the great products..

Sam Adams said...

woo hoo! 12/12 very nice. can't wait!

jen_nifer said...

ok, I have a question, how will I know how much weight to start with?

Carl Daikeler said...

In the guidebook Chalene shows you how to choose your weights for the best results in each phase. The system lays everything out very clearly. You just need resistance bands or dumbells, a yoga mat, and a space about 6x6 feet. No pull-up bars or other equipment needed -- but DO bring your determination!

Hi, Carl:
1. What is the price of the "Basic" ChaLean Extreme workout package?
2. What is the price of the "Deluxe" workout package?
3. Will the additional add-on items that are part of the deluxe package be sold as individual items, as an option? For example, can I purchase the 7th workout DVD ONLY, but NOT purchase the 3 bands and weighted gloves that are also listed as part of the add-ons? I already own weighted gloves and resistance bands, so I don't want to have to buy these items.
Please advise & reply. Thanks.

Carl Daikeler said...

1) Retail price for the Base Kit is $119.85 + s/h
2) Retail for the ChaLEAN Extreme Deluxe is $209.70 + s/h
3) We are working on setting up the ability to get the Deluxe Workouts seperately through customer service and on the Team Beachbody site.

Hi, Carl:

For the ChaLean Extreme workouts, what is the suggested range for dumbbell weights for a woman (heavier weight lifting), that I need to have available to achieve the best workout results?

Thanks.

Carl Daikeler said...

Everyone is different, but it's similar to P90X type of weight. I think 5-25 should be plenty for most people.

Anonymous said...

So one has to add $89.85 to the $119.85 base system to get the deluxe package (which excludes shipping?) And this deluxe package contains only 3 additional DVDs? I hope you don't mind me saying that the deluxe package of $89.85 for 3 DVDs is very expensive. Can you please tell us why the deluxe system is expensive? Thanks a lot!

Deluxe includes 3 workouts, 3 resistance band levels and weighted gloves for 3 x 29.95 plus s/h

These workouts are REALLY great workouts. You can assign the values that you think are appropriate, but with the results we got with these programs, the value is close to $170:

§ Fat-Burn Challenge -- one of Chal;ene's most intense cardio routines EVER

§ "Get Lean" Intervals -- Mix of cardio and weight training (which will make you feel so wiped out, you will want to cry... then you'll see the results and smile!)

§ Weighted Gloves -- Increase the intensity of the cardio workouts and add definition to the arms and shoulders

§ Three Resistance Bands -- portable and convenient for results like a full set of dumbbells.

Bonus --

§ "I’ve Got Abs!" -- Chalene added her most extreme ab workout to the program. I call this the "money" workout. Awesome.

Carl -

I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope that you guys make DVD 7 available individually. I am a coach and have a LARGE list of people who are AVID and advanced video exerecisers, who already have the gloves from Turbo Jam, and either already have (or don't want!) the resistance bands - myself included. Many of them have told me that if DVD 7 isn't available without the unwanted stuff, they won't be purchasing the deluxe package AT ALL.

I do hope that BB will consider the needs of its advanced and dedicated customers, and offer DVD 7 by itself.

Carl Daikeler said...

I swear -- We are working on setting up the workouts in the deluxe seperately. The best customers are truly THE BEST, and we want you to be happy.

And by the way -- we've got some other stuff in the pipeline which will drive you guys insane! Crazy great stuff, never ever been done before. The fun has just begun!

How much will the shipping be on the basic and deluxe packages?

Anonymous said...

Carl,

Thanks for giving us the contents of the additional deluxe package. I would like to request (just like the others) to have the option to get just the DVD - that is, the 3 workouts on 1 DVD (Fat Burn Challenge, Get Lean and I've Got Abs). I am sure most of us (I practically have most of the Beachbody DVD sets except Hip Hop Abs systems because I ain't hip hoppy). I already have the gloves and numerous bands. I am just interested in the DVD with the 3 workotus of the additional deluxe system. PLEASE give us the option to order just the DVD. Thanks a lot!

I'm not sure what the S&H is, but in line with other products I am sure.

Is this going to be ok for beginners to use?

Carl Daikeler said...

I think this will be great for people who have some basis of fitness, but of course you'll want to run it by a doctor first.

If you have no basis of fitness now, I would suggest Power 90, Rockin Body, or Kathy Smith's Project: YOU! Type 2 for at least 30 days to get you up to speed.

Sam Adams said...

Hey Carl,

I chatted with Chalene last night (which I love that btw that Beachbody allows for those kinds of chats!) and she said that if a person is planning to do her program and planning on buying adjustable weights she really recommended the ones that go up to 50 saying most people will outgrow 20 lbs fairly quickly.

All the best!

Sam

PS
I know am hosting a party too woo!

Eiren said...

Maybe i'm a little slow... I'm super excited, and feel like i've waited, like many, forever for these videos! I emailed my coach, but i wanted to ask here too... If my coach isn't selling the videos, where can i go to buy them? Or how do i find a coach to buy them?
THANKS!

Carl Daikeler said...

EVERY COACH will have this product for sale by mid-December! We're getting close. Product manufacturing is almost complete. Then it's on the trucks, and to the warehouse. I swear -- It's almost here! Just go to "Shop For Products" on your Team Beachbody page and you'll see it as soon as it's available!

Eiren said...

THANKS!

Hi Carl, you mentioned the DAY being the 12th. So I was wondering, if we ordered the 12th, how long afterward would the item ship and get to us? By Christmas? January? Just wanted to know how much longer till we get it into our hands after we order. And is there a fast shipping method like 2 day service? Thanks.

Polly

Carl Daikeler said...

I am not sure about fast shipping upgrade, and wouldn't want to promise delivery in the midst of the busy holiday shipping season where we can't control how fast the system moves stuff... But I think it is safe to say you will have it before the end of the year.

Anonymous said...

So then the Dec 12th date is NOT a pre-order date? I've been in contact with Coach Relations about this SEVERAL times, and EACH time, I have been told that customers can PLACE orders starting "on or about" Dec 12th, but that the orders won't actually SHIP until after the Launch Parties are held on Jan 3rd (so they'll ship out on Monday Jan 5th). Is that information NOT accurate? I'd like to be able to give my customers the correct info.

-Christina (gobonas99)

Carl Daikeler said...

There is only one variable that could delay the Dec 12th launch by a few days, but whatever day we launch is ALSO the day we begin shipping! I'll make sure Customer Service knows. Thanks for the heads up.

Sam Adams said...

Carl,

So, if the product does ship the 12th does that mean that the launch party packages will also ship the 12th? Or will those still be shipped closer to the 21st? Thanks!

Sam

Reesy said...

Hi Carl,

The costs you listed above are the retail prices not the coach price correct?

Carl Daikeler said...

The goal is to ship the launch party packs and product out on the 12th. Those are the priority shipments.

Anonymous said...

When will non-coaches be able to place orders? Will they need to wait until the 3rd? Can they order through coaches beginning on December 12th?

Kassandra Bragg said...

Hi Carl! First of all thank you so much for this awesome opportunity! Not only did I win the MDB game for my age group in 2007, but thanks to Beachbody I was able to conceive my 3rd child after 4 years of trying! I had some ligament issues while pregnant and was barely able to walk and my nutrition went out the window and I gained 74lbs. Well thanks to your awesome company I had the tools to lose it again! My son is 5 months old and I've lost 55lbs so far and have just over 40 to go to reach my goal. You have blessed my life so much with this company.

Ok, now that I've babbled on LOL, I saw you mentioned that Launch party packs have first priority on shipping on the 12th. If I order the Lua==uach Party Pack and pay for the express mail shipping will that be honored?

Thanks for all that you do!

Kassandra

Carl Daikeler said...

Wow... I have never seen this much demand for a new product! It's like a new Harry Potter book release meets fitness!

Here's the bottom line; We are working hard to have the websites, product, and Launch Party Packs ready to go for the Dec. 12. I am literally reviewing/approving/tweaking the websites for ChaLEAN Extreme on an hourly basis (Even though the entire company relocated over the weekend... we are still doing all we can to stay on track!) and then they go into testing to make sure all the technical stuff works. It's complex. We don't want to screw it up.

The plan is to send an email to the Team Beachbody membership the day before we put the sites up.

All coaches have access to sell the product - all at the same time. No preference to anyone.

We will send emails out to the rest of the Beachbody database the day the sites go live.

As soon as the product kits are built and QC'ed they will be shipped by whatever means attached to the order. I am told by our VP of Ops that product is confirmed to arrive in the warehouse this week, and shipments will go out on Monday the 15th.

I have been told that the Launch Party packs will ship with top priority before anything else.

Anonymous said...

So with a product on such high demand, is there a chance that it will go out? That it will go out of stock? LOL. I am really wanting to start the product by Jan. you think that is possible? Thanks.

Thembela said...

Hi Carl

Would like to know if South African's can expect more of Beachbody products and support in future.

I wanted to be a coach , but it's only open for US.

I have been using Turbo Jam and can't wait for Chalean Extreame to be out.

Kassandra Bragg said...

I'm toooo excited! I find myself not able to sleep and checking the Coach Office several times a day lol!

I have a question about the nutrition plan. How does this plan compare to P90X? I notice there's a focus on body composition so I was wondering if the caloric requirements take body fat, lean mass, etc into account.

Blessings,

Kassandra

Is there anyone hosting a party near Washington DC? I want to buy the complete package ASAP!! I can't be a coach. I've been waiting since November, when Chalene was invited to Gayle King's XM radio program.

judahsma said...

I just got my ship confirmation for the Launch Party pack!!

Anonymous said...

I if I purchase just the Basic Package to start but find I want the 3 workouts from the deluxe package at a later time(say about 2months for my birthday) would there be a way just to get the workouts with out having to purchase the whole deluxe workout for 200 dollars?

trixie0425 said...

They are selling Deluxe Upgrade kits for those that purchase the Basic kit initially. And they are selling the Deluxe DVDs for those that aren't wanting the exercise bands and weighted gloves (but if you don't have them, I'd suggest getting them!!)

Trish said...

I was just at Beachbody.com looking for Chalean Extreme and noticed that the deluxe package is not available? Will it be coming out soon???? I am excited about Chalene's new workout but I want the Deluxe Package and I won't buy Chalean Extreme until the Deluxe is available...go big or go home...so they say!

Jeri said...

Can anyone tell me what kind of weights are being used by janelle and layli in the video? I really like those, and I don't have 500 bucks for select techs. Thanks.

ChaLEAN Extreme does work !
And all it takes is 90 days to make your body sexier and healthier !

rlars said...

cool

tracysnell said...

I have the Chalean Extreme, but would like to purchase the Deluxe upgrades. Obviously, I don't need ALL The DVDs again, just the new ones that go with Deluxe. I would like the resistance bands and the ball, too. I have gloves from my first set of Turbo Jam DVDS.
Are there any plans to put out just the add-on sets for people like me?
