21 Day Fix Extreme! <~~~ NEW!!!

IT'S TIME TO GET SERIOUSLY SHREDDED!

That's why it became America's #1 fitness and nutrition program. Now, celebrity trainer and national bikini competitor Autumn Calabrese is going to ramp up the intensity to help you shred up and shed off those final pounds…with 21 DAY FIX EXTREME.
21 DAY FIX makes losing weight so simple…you never have to diet again.

WHAT IS AUTUMN CALABRESE’S 21 DAY FIX EXTREME?
At some point, no matter what workout program you’re doing, there comes that final push to achieve the hardbody you’ve always wanted. That’s why Autumn created seven all-new high-intensity 30-minute workouts featuring a variety of moves that keep your body guessing, so you see maximum results!
For your nutrition, you’ll not only be practicing portion control—you'll be eating ONLY clean foods. No treats. No cheats. No excuses. It’s 21 days, and it’s extreme. But if you want a lean six-pack, cut arms, ripped shoulders, and toned legs…it’s time to get serious!
The 21 Day Fix is different from any other Beachbody program released in the past. It is a full featured workout program accompanied by a thorough weight loss plan as well. One of the unique features of this program is that it involves no counting of any kind. That means you will not need to worry about fat content, carbohydrate count or calorie amount in the foods you consume on the plan. There is no measuring and no wondering how much you can eat or how often. On the 21 Day Fix, no food is prohibited either. But, by far, the most appealing feature that many cannot seem to pass up is the promise that you can lose up to 15 pounds in only 21 days.
The 21 Day Fix was created by Beachbody’s newest trainer, Autumn Calabrese. Autumn is a fitness competitor and certified personal trainer. She has trained countless celebrities, including famous star stylist Rachel Zoe and Dancing with the Stars hosts, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke. In the program, she shares her knowledge and passion for fitness in order to help others change their life for the better. Autumn designed the program with the intention of teaching users about fitness, portion control and most importantly, how to build life-long healthy habits. In the 21 Day Fix, Amber teaches what proper portion size looks like by using color coded food storage containers to help plan out your meals for each day on the plan. She also created six different workouts in order for you to get the most out of your exercise routine with short, intense bouts of exercise for each day of the week. With each workout video being only about 30 minutes long, they are easy to fit into your day regardless of how busy your schedule may seem. The workout videos are so easy to follow and include basic exercises most people are familiar. If you are a parent that has to workout at home, you can even have your children join you and do the workouts with you. It is never too early to introduce them to fitness and healthy eating.
The 21 Day Fix program comes with six workouts on two DVDs plus the bonus workout, the Dirty 30. The workouts are only about 30 minutes long and are ideal for anyone that leads a busy lifestyle and/or has little time to squeeze in a workout due to family or work demands. The only equipment necessary to complete the workouts is a variety of small free weights and a resistance band. Some workouts can also be done with your own body weight and will require nothing but a workout mat. The program is as basic as it gets, but the results that you can achieve in only three weeks are far beyond basic. Although the workouts are short, they are intense and will leave you feeling the burn for days. If you have limitations due to an injury or other ailment, there are modifiers in every workout that appear on screen to help you town down the intensity and the impact on your body without sacrificing calorie burn.
On the 21 Day Fix, you can expect to do a work out each day of the week but, since each is only 30 minutes long, it is easy to complete either before work, during your lunch break or in the evening before bed. Throughout the 21 days on the program, you will repeat the DVDs for three weeks.
The 21 Day Fix Nutrition Plan is one of the easiest plans to follow. The containers make it very easy to know what to eat and how much, especially since no food is off limits on this plan. Each container is to be used to store and measure a specific type of food. You can eat as much of that food as you can fit into that container. The container colors and their specific use are as follows:
Once you receive the 21 Day Fix and have your containers, all you need to do is fill it with delicious, healthy food and eat what you can fit into them. There is no need to worry about fat, calories, carbohydrates, sugar content or any other number for that matter. It could not be easier, especially for someone that is new to weight loss and/or does not want to have to worry about keeping track of how much they have eaten. The eating plan even includes a restaurant guide so you can plan ahead before heading out to dinner with friends and remain on the plan without cheating.
In order to help keep you within a healthy calorie range without counting them, the 21 Day Fix nutritional plan comes with a chart and mathematical equation to help you determine how many servings of each of the seven containers you should be eating per day. Since calorie intake differs for everyone depending on gender, stature and activity level, you will be required to use the equation and chart in order to figure out how much to eat in order to reach your desired goal weight. 
If you happen to be on a special diet, such as vegetarian, diabetic, breastfeeding or any other, the 21 Day Fix nutritional plan can be adapted to meet your specific dietary needs. The containers and plan can be modified, and instructions to do so depending on your specific diet are included in the program.
Think about the 3 Day Quick Fix as an accelerated kick start to your weight loss on the 21 Day Fix plan. It will help you shed the maximum amount of weight that is healthy for your body type and frame in as little as 72 hours. The 3 Day Quick Fix is what its’ creator, Autumn Calabrese, uses in order to prepare for a fitness competition or magazine photo shoot. The 3 Day Quick Fix can be done in the beginning of the plan and/or at the end for even more incredible results.
If you want to lose weight quickly, this is one program that is capable of delivering that. There are two approaches you can take when embarking on the 21 Day Fix, and the path you choose will depend on how much weight you have to lose. If you have a substantial amount of weight to lose, you can easily lose 15 pounds in 21 days as promised by the program. As long as you follow the exercise plan and eat only what you can fit into the containers, your weight will come off. The longer you remain on the program, the more weight you will lose. You can have one cheat meal per week as stated in the nutrition plan, but it is important not to over indulge.
If you only have a small amount to lose and are basically using the 21 Day Fix to lose your last 10 to 15 pounds before summer, you can realistically expect to lose up to 10 pounds in the three weeks on the plan and gradually lose the rest if you continue.
If you wish to do the plan long term and lose a lot of weight over an extended period of time, you can repeat the program as many times as you want in order to achieve your desired weight loss. Once you are accustomed to how much you should be eating each day, you can simply use the containers daily and incorporate different workouts and fitness routines from other Beachbody programs to avoid boredom. The goal of the 21 Day Fix is not to be a temporary diet that you stay on until your weight comes off. When Autumn created the plan, she did so because she wanted to teach others healthy eating habits. America has a major problem with portion control and, by doing the 21 Day Fix; you can relearn what a proper sized meal should look like.
21 DAY FIX EXTREME RAMPS UP ANYONE'S RESULTS.
This is all about getting shredded. So whether you’ve been doing other extreme workouts, or you’re a 21 Day Fix graduate, or you’re simply in a hurry to lose every last unwanted pound, 21 Day Fix EXTREME will give you the body you’ve been working towards.
No other program has you eating this well and working this hard. It’s going to take guts, intensity, and drive. But it’s only 21 days. Autumn will be there every step of the way to guide you, challenge you, keep you on track. And at the end of the day, you’re going to look and feel awesome.
What is Included in the 21 Day Fix Program?

21 Day Fix Workouts:

The Total Body Cardio Fix is a fast paced cardio workout that can be done with your own body weight or can also be done with weights and/or resistance bands to up the intensity. The 30 minutes include two exercises done for four rounds. There is a short 20 second rest period in between each round for recovery. The purpose of the Total Body Cardio Fix is to give you a whole body cardio workout while toning every muscle from head to toe.

The Upper Fix works the upper body, including arms, chest, shoulders and abs. You can use weights and resistance bands with this workout as well or you can simply use your own body weight. There are five exercises that will be done for two rounds with a 20 second rest period in between. You can expect to do push-ups, scissor twists, planks and presses, among others.

The Lower Fix workout focuses on the lower body, with a special focus on most women’s problem areas, the legs and buttocks. Once again, you will be doing two rounds of exercises with a rest period in between that is 20 seconds long. Everything from your calves to your buttocks will be sore after completing this 30 minute workout.

The Pilates Fix focuses mostly on floor exercises that include basic Pilates moves to strengthen your core, elongate your muscles and firm up your lower body.

The Cardio Fix is a workout based on High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) similar to Shaun T’s workouts in the Insanity and Focus T25 programs. It involves minute long bursts of very intense exercise with 20 second rest periods in between for recovery. Explosive, plyometrics moves such as skater jumps and box jumps are mixed with classics such as jumping jacks and push-ups to give you a sweat inducing, calorie torching workout for the entire 31 minute length of the DVD.

Although the Yoga Fix seems less intense than the others, it is by no means an easy workout. It involves plenty of stretching to help recover from the week of more grueling activity, and is to be done on the seventh day of the week in addition to one of the other videos.

In addition to the six workouts already included with the 21 Day Fix Program, you will also receive the Dirty 30 Workout to add to your fitness routine as a bonus gift. The Dirty 30 is similar to a CrossFit workout, and includes a variety of exercises that will be repeated for four rounds in order to help you carve out a leaner, stronger, more defined physique.

The Plyo Fix workout is a bonus. It does not come with the program unless it is purchased through Team Beachbody and can be done in addition to any of the daily workout videos on the 21 Day Fix workout schedule. It is filled with plyometric exercises that help improve overall strength and stamina.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The resistance band is a 15 pound Pro-Grade band that you can utilize while doing your 21 Day Fix daily workouts. The plan suggests using free weights but, if you are just starting out with a fitness routine and do not have weights handy, you can incorporate the resistance band to get started. Once you feel comfortable enough that you will continue with the plan and have increased your strength, you can add free weights as well.
The on-the-go container given with the 21 Day Fix as an additional gift makes it easy to take your food storage containers while on the road for work or pleasure. The Ultimate 21 Day Fix costs $119.70. You can also purchase the two additional Ultimate DVD workouts, Flat Abs Fix and Barre Legs individually and add it to the Basic 21 Day Fix Kit or Challenge Pack for $29.85 if you wish.
Some additional items you can purchase to go along with your 21 Day Fix program are an extra set of food storage containers and a Plyo Fix Workout to add to your 21 Day Fix workout DVDs. It is a good idea to have an extra set of food containers for advanced meal planning and food preparation. Since you will be eating more than one of each container filled with food each day, it can be difficult to eat out of it, wash it and refill it if you spend most of your day at work or out running errands. Having at least two to three sets of the containers will allow you to plan your meals ahead of time and have them ready for the remainder of the day. You can also plan your meals prior to the work week beginning and store it all in the containers for a few days at a time. By doing this you will be less likely to cheat and deviate from the 21 Day Fix eating plan. A seven piece set of extra containers costs $17.85 so planning ahead for the week will mean spending more money on containers but it can be very helpful in ensuring you stick to the plan.
I will be hosting an EXCLUSIVE 21 Day Fix Extreme Test Group where I will be mentoring you through the program, teaching you how to use the nutrition plan, create a meal plan, prep, as well as give you snack ideas, recipes, and tips.  Plus you will get daily motivation and accountability from me in a closed online group!!!

21 Day Fix EXTREME ~ Dirty 30 REVIEW

It's amazing what can happen when you truly BELIEVE! When you set your mind to something and you just GO FOR IT! Don't worry about how you're going to get there, that part falls into place. Decide to change your life and you never know the possibilities! 


I received these Elite flowers delivered to my door from Beachbody Corporate, along with an EXCLUSIVE Elite Coach Sneak Peek Workout DVD of the 21 Day Fix Dirty 30 EXTREME! It's from the soon to be released 21 Day Fix EXTREME, coming out on February 2nd!! Ahh the perks of being an Elite Coach! It feels so good to be rewarded for something that I have worked so hard for all year long 


I'm obsessed with the original 21 Day Fix workouts and nutrition guide! What I love about it is that it sets you up for lifetime habits! Even if I'm not technically doing the fix, I still follow the nutrition guide almost daily now. I mean, who wants to count calories? Not me! It also is dummy proof when it comes to portion sizes. This program does all that for you! And the best part about the workouts is that they are full of variety!! Strength training, cardio, Pilate's, yoga, etc! {{And it's on sale this month}} Did you know that the 21 Day Fix is America's #1 Fitness and Nutrition Program!? Yep!! 

Now Autumn Calabrese, Celebrity Trainer and National Bikini Competitor has stepped it up with the NEW, 21 Day Fix Extreme!!! It's not yet released, but I have an exclusive copy of the Dirty 30 Extreme and I was able to try it out today!!! So I wanted to give you guys a little Review on it!

So, to start, you need a set of light and heavy dumbbells. I was good starting with 5 and 10 pounds! This workout is 30 mins long. There are 3 rounds, 2 exercises each round and each exercise lasts for a minute, along with a 10 second water break in between each (thank goodness!!). There is a modifier in each video, but this is still not a program for beginners! It's quite different from the the original 21 Day Fix. She adds in some new Warm Up moves, so it's different from the get go. Since I've been doing the NEW Insanity Max 30, I will relate it to that when I say, I would have maxed out in the beginning lol this program is INTENSE! There's also lot's of squats, lunges, and booty workouts, which I love, and focuses on the core, arms, and legs all together! 

The first workout had my shoulders burning already! And the push up rows are no joke! I'm getting better at these since I've been doing them in Insanity Max 30, but I'll be honest, I had to drop down to my knees half way through! Some of the moves require a lot of balance and focusing on your form! So those of you doing PiYo, you're a step ahead of the rest! If you aren't good with balance, that's ok, you can tap your toe on the ground and get the same effect! And you know she had to add in a Bonus Round!! Wait till you see this bonus!!!!

As Autumn says, 'You don't stop when you're tired, you stop when you're done!' It's all about your mindset!
