21 Day Fix Review

My Straight Forward 21 Day Fix Review

my 21 day fix reviewI am going to keep this 21 Day Fix Review simple.  With any fitness program, you are looking for a few specific things.

  1. How are the workouts?
  2. How if the nutritional advice?
  3. Is it worth the cost?

I have a background in Physical Education, and am passionate about promoting healthy living.  I am very honest with my reviews, and hope that this one will help you make an educated decision about whether or not Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix is for you or not.  Let’s take a quick look at Beachbody’s promo video for this program.


21 Day Fix Review – The Workouts

This program comes with 6 workouts.  Here are;

  1. Upper Fix. Targeted resistance training helps shape your chest, back, shoulders, arms, and abs.
  2. Lower Fix. Firm and tone your entire lower body while you blast fat and burn calories.
  3. Total Body Cardio Fix. Keep your heart rate up and your metabolism revved high long after the workout is over.
  4. Cardio Fix. Get your heart pumping and your body moving as you melt away the pounds.
  5. Pilates Fix. Strengthen your core, elongate your muscles, and firm your hips and thighs.
  6. Yoga Fix. Improve your balance, flexibility, and strength as you help relax your muscles.

There are 2 things that I love about these workouts.  First off, they cover everything!  You are working everything from head to toe.  You are strengthening, toning and stretching.  Second, I love that the workouts are only 30 minutes.  So many people use the excuse that they don’t have time to workout.  If you can’t find 30 minutes, you really need to rethink your schedule.

What About The Portion Control System?

This is a huge selling point for this program.  Autumn Calabrese, the trainer behind The 21 Day 21 day fix Fix, has come up with a simple, straight forward and easy to understand way to get your nutrition under control.  You simply fill each container with the food group specified to that container.  Here is what you get;

  • Green—Vegetables
  • Purple—Fruit
  • Red—Protein
  • Yellow—Carbohydrates
  • Blue—Healthy Fats and Cheese
  • 2 Orange—Seeds and Oils
  • Shakeology® Shaker Cup—Drinks

It doesn’t get much simpler than that!  You may notice that there is a Shakeology cup.  That is only relevant if you have Shakeology, which means that you need to buy The 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack.

Not interested in Shakeology?  That means you are interested in the base package, so let’s take a look at the cost and see if it is worth it.

The 21 Day Fix – Is It Worth It

It wouldn’t be a very good 21 Day Fix Review if I didn’t look at the cost.  6 workouts, the portion control containers, nutrition guide, training from a Beachbody coach and more.  How much for it all?  $60!  My mind was blown when Beachbody released the price.  Most Beachbody programs retail for $100+.  For what you are getting with this program, I believe that it is very easily worth the cost.  As with all Beachbody programs, you get a 30 day money back guarantee with this program.  So, if you don’t like it, return it!  Ready to get started?

Obesity is a Disease?

by admin on February 2, 2014

I recently found this in an article and is is disturbing to me.

“The American Medical Assn. voted Tuesday to declare obesity a disease, a move that effectively defines 78 million American adults and 12 million children as having a medical condition requiring treatment.

The nation’s leading physicians organization took the vote after debating whether the action would do more to help affected patients get useful treatment or would further stigmatize a condition with many causes and few easy fixes.”

Many causes and few easy fixes?  I am possibly going to offend a lot of people here, but in MOST cases, obesity is a CHOICE!  Yes, there are certain medical conditions that make it difficult for people to lose weight.  Other than those people, how is it a disease?  If somebody making these people eat junk food?  Is somebody making these people live sedentary lifestyles?

This whole story just contributes to the already huge problem of people wanted a quick fix for everything.  There is no lack of resources for people on living healthy.  If anything, there is too much info.  So, here it is.  I am going to sum up all of the research for those people suffering from obesity.

Your new biggest drink is water.  Not soda, coffee or beer.  It’s not lattes, cappuccinos or milk shakes.  It’s WATER!

If it’s fried, DON’T Eat It!

Fruits and vegetables = GOOD!

When it comes to pasta and bread, whole wheat needs to be the FIRST ingredient.  Not wheat, or enriched wheat, WHOLE WHEAT!


People often ask me what the best exercise for weight loss is.  The answer is simple, it’s the one you will actually do.  DO SOMETHING!  I don’t care if it’s walking, jogging, riding a bike, dancing, basketball, swimming, etc.

The problem that I see is that people lack motivation.  They say that they want to lose weight, but that cookie is too tempting.  So, FIND YOU MOTIVATION!  I’ll make it simple.  Do you have someone in your life that you love?  Kids, a spouse, parents, friends?  There is a good chance that is you stay obese, your quality of life is going to suffer, and there is a chance that you are actually shortening your life.  So, what means more to you, eating that cake and watching TV or spending time with the ones you love?

If you really need a structured approach, than I suggest checking out a Beachbody Challenge Pack.

These packs take away your excuse!  You select a fitness program and a flavor of Shakeology (known as “the healthiest meal of the day”).  Each program is created by a world class trainer, and includes a nutrition guide, fitness tips, and FREE coaching from your Beachbody coach (me).



P90X3 Deal End Soon

by admin on January 30, 2014


P90X3 Challenge Pack Sale Ends January 31st at midnight!

All good things come in threes, but be warned: P90X3 is far from a trilogy. No, P90X3 is NOT the kid sister workout. It’s the workout that took notes from it’s siblings, then condensed, and accelerated to become the most dynamic and fastest workout yet.

The ultimate excuse buster

Time is the biggest excuse. P90X3 solves that. Every workout is 30 minutes and the clock starts the minute you push play. Before you can say “drop and give me 10,” it’s over and you are one workout closer to the six-pack of your dreams.

Muscle acceleration explained

Many P90X fans were hooked on the science of muscle confusion – which introduced variety to the workouts and prevented plateauing. P90X3 takes a hint from that success and from studies showing the most dramatic body transformations happen within the first 30 minutes of exercise. Enter muscle acceleration, a Tony Horton-approved highly-structured schedule with an incredibly high level of intensity and an unprecedented variety of moves. The gurus behind P90X3 combined exercises and added some twists to maximize your time and keep every muscle challenged for a full 30 minutes.

Say goodbye to boredom

Which brings us to the fun-factor. Host, world-renown fitness legend, Tony Horton does not disappoint. With his witty one-liners and can-do mantras, he’ll simultaneously have you laughing and fired-up to bust out that final rep. Along with the constant entertainment, P90X3 has the most workouts of any Beachbody program. With 16 workouts in the base kit, they switch it up before you have a chance to consider boredom. From cardio to strength to pilates to MMX, there is something for everyone.

The ideal P90X3-er

It may seem lofty to proclaim, but P90X3 is indeed a workout for everyone. Everyone searching for tighter abs and leaner muscles, that is. But fitness novices and experts need not be afraid by P90X3’s come-one-come-all invitation. You don’t have to have any previous P90X experience in order to get killer results. For the beginner, the variety of workouts in P90X3 is the perfect place to discover their fitness style. If the move can be modified there is a cast member showing you how. But don’t expect to be an expert on day one. (Yes, fitness veterans will still be challenged.) As Tony says, ”You don’t get off easy, you just get to finish faster!”
