What’s up!!!?? It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted ANYTHING! Sorry!! I’ve been so busy working with some of the new coaches who decided to take control of, not only their fitness but their finances too! I’ve been running what’s called mini sessions. Its like a mentorship for an handful of people who join me as a coach each month. I’ve basically made that my focus for a while. I’ve put a system into place that is so easy to do and easy for my new coaches to do with their coaches! Its became a “win-win” for everyone. So that’s what I’ve been up to! And just FYI if you’d like to get more information about being apart of my next internship position shoot me a message and I’ll be glad to talk to you more about it. I must warn you though, I can only work with a few each month. Mainly because I want to make sure I give them my full support and attention. My goal is to get you helping others and earning income as quickly as I can! So get in early!
So lets get down to it!
First off let me say that Autumn Calabrese knows what she’s talking about! There’s a Reason that this program continues to stay at the TOP of the sales charts! BECAUSE IT WORKS! The 21 Day Fix is a simple, easy to use program that takes all the guess workout out of portion size and nutrition. If you struggle with not knowing what to eat, or how much to eat then this is something you can’t afford to go with out! The main focus of this program is the 21 Day Fix Color Coated Containers that tells you which food group to put in it and once you’ve filled the container then that’s it! Thats all you get of that food. Don’t worry though, its enough! You wont go hungry. Theres no hard to weigh out recipes to follow. Just your normal foods prepared the 21 Day Fix way and measured quickly and easily in the container!
So you’re short on time? Well guess what, so is everyone else! Here’s the reality…if you want change then you’ve got to be willing to change. EVERYONE can change. You might be thinking “oh im so busy and I can’t fit 30 minutes to workout into my life”. Bull CRAP! Yes you can. You might have to give something up, or shift some things around but you CAN do it!
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
So how can it really save you time? It saves a ton of time in the kitchen. Like I said before. All you need to do it look at the meal planner. When you go to the store, you get the things you need (you may already have most of what it calls for), then you start prepping your food.
Lets just say on a Sunday afternoon you cook enough food for the week. Its really not that hard and its not like cooking each night for dinner. Cooking in bulk takes only a short time, and once its done, its DONE! Then you just measure out in your containers for each meal for the next 3, 5, or 7 days. Or if you want you could measure out each day the night before. So Im sure your thinking; I’ve got a spouse and kids in the house. This isn’t going to work! Well I would first invite you to STOP looking for a reason to fail! Secondly, its not crazy food!! Its good, healthy foods, that in all honesty your family needs to eat too. Think about it! You’re teaching your family the habits that they are going to carry on for life. Right? So why not get their taste buds used to making healthy choices and even teaching them the right portions to eat. Now thats something worth passing down to each generation!
Check out what Autumn has to say about ‘keeping it fresh’!
Yes they are really 30 minutes. Are they easy or hard? Well, you can make it easy by lolly-gagging around or you can make it tough by pushing yourself for the time you have. Its up to you.
Do I really need to keep going? Its an AWESOME workout for anyone to do!!
I hope this post has helped you make a decision on what to do. I hope its helped you in your awareness of what you can do and whats possible and available. Take the challenge! If you’re reading this and have done the 21 Day Fix, I’d invite you to tell me your story. How its helped you, and leave some words of encouragement for other readers! Until next time, make it a great day!!
YES you can. The 21 Day Fix is Beachbody’s newest, and can I say most popular program out right now. And its perfect for anyone of any level of experience! Even if you’re in great shape its a great mix to what you already do!
One of the main reasons the I became a Beachbody Coach is because of the loyalty Beachbody has to committing to creating programs that are made for lifestyle changes, NOT diets! Diets are temporary actions that bring temporary results.
Again this is an easy answer. YES! Well maybe! Why/how you might ask? I want to be honest with you here. Remember what I just said about diets? How they are temporary. Well you will maintain the results and you can continue to lose weight if you continue on with additional rounds of the 21 Day Fix and use the knowledge you’ve acquired from this program in your daily life. Like all things, if you do it to get the results, then stop and go back to your old ways, then you can’t expect to keep what you had. That again is called a diet, and thats why diets don’t work.
Deon C. in the picture below did the 21 Day Fix for his first round and loved the results he achieved. He didn’t want to stop there. So he continued on and did another 9 rounds for a total of 10 rounds. Lost 58 pounds!!! So how is he doing now? Great! Why? Because he not only has 30 minute workouts that fit conveniently into his schedule, but he has knowledge of how to portion out his food, and what food groups get what portions.
Lots of people eat salad everyday and are overweight. Lots of people TRULY (I put the emphasis on truly for a reason) eat 3-5 healthy meals each day as you should and are still overweight or not at the desired size or physique. Why? Its all because they are eating to much. Remember the old saying, “to much of a good thing can be bad”? Thats very true. In fact this is the reason that Autumn Calabrese created this program. She said that she’d been working with a client for sometime, and the client wasn’t reaching the results they wanted. She knew the client was eating healthy and balanced meals. They went to lunch one day. They both ordered the same salad. Autumn said that it was a big salad and that she only ate about 1/3 of it. Her client ate the entire salad. That told her a lot about what the problem was. So she created the portion control system and BAM!! Success followed.
She has multi-colored containers for you to use. Each color represents a food group. So there really is no guess work. This is probably one of the most simple and effective programs to date that Beachbody has released.
Good question! I usually have a full review of the programs to tell you what I like and don’t like. I know I’ve promised a full review on this program. But the 21 DayFix has been SO POPULAR that literally it has sold out and for a short time was only available by pre-order. I think its still like that now, EXCEPT if you get the Challenge Pack which is now the only thing I recommend, because a challenge pack has everything you need to succeed. It has the workouts, nutrition guides any included equipement and the #1 most important meal of the day…Shakeology.
If your going to take control of your life you need to take it seriously. YOUARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE! Start acting like it!
Now back to the question. Since Im a coach, I can’t order a challenge pack. I already drink Shakeology so I had to pre-order just the product. Don’t fear though. If aren’t a coach and you want to become one, and share your new lifestyle with others and make some cash doing it, you can get the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack and actually the normal $39 coach signup fee is waived! Plus as a coach you get discounts on your shakeology and other purchases that you make with Beachbody.
Are you ready to become a coach? I want to talk to you about it! Contact me ASAP so we can get you started! If your a “go-getter” and ready for something new and fun and AWESOME, then I want you on my team!
If you just want free support and don’t want the coach discounts or want to make any extra money and just want to take care of yourself then thats ok to. Get the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack and you’ve got me as your coach, tons of free support, and an awesome community of people who are working towards the same goals as you!
Our Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler took the challenge…here’s what he said;
“If you’re still not convinced. Take it from me. This program works. I preach being the “proof the product works”, so I put it to the test. I got a preview version of the 21 Day Fix program, and got to work. My results – 11lbs off, and 3″ off my waist, in 21 days.
The thing I loved about the 21 Day Fix was how I was able to be really disciplined because I knew it was only 21 days. I knew exactly what to eat, when to workout, and trusted that if I COMMITTED for 21 days, the results would be there. And they were. And, if you’re willing to work for it, they’ll be there for you, too. So, are you ready for a FIX?”
Holy cow its been a while since I’ve done a post!! Sorry about that. Holidays and just the normal winter running around has threw me off a little! Hey really quick before I go into all the workouts that men and women can do in 30 minutes, let me ask a favor of you. Is that cool? When you get done reading this post…would you mind leaving me a comment? Let me know if this was useful for you and click the share button! Thanks.
Ok so now on to the good stuff. The biggest question isn’t whether or not there are 30 minute routines you can do. Of course there is. The real question that most people want an honest answer to is…can I get in shape or stay in shape with only doing 30 minutes? The answer…YES! So before I loose your attention completely, I’ll list out below the workouts that are rated #1 for 30 minute workouts below that I’ll give you the scoop on how 30 minute workouts in some if not most cases can be more effective for you than an hour, and I’ll go into each listed workout a little to give you an idea of what they’re like. BUT remember, leave me a nice word or two in the comment box below!
30 Minute Workouts for Men and Women that are totally effective for anyone of any size, gender and experience.
Ok so 30 minutes a day HUH? Can it really help me shred this fat and look good? Yes! How? Study after study shows that the most dramatic body transformations happen in the first 30 minutes of exercise. Tony Horton’s goal in X3 was to find a way to use that window of opportunity to help people get ripped, P90X ripped, in just half an hour a day.
So lets just use P90X as an example. With P90X you have your first round of workouts, usually the first round is 30 minutes and then you repeat that in the second round to finish up your hour. So lets say most people burn out in the first 30 minutes and in the second round they need to have enough energy to make it through the workout but may have pushed to hard in the first round, so they are fighting against theirself. Therefor, having 1 30 minute workout that men and women can do each day or 5 or 6 days a week showed that they are effectively burning calories and get in amazing shape.
Of course if you’ve read any of my other post you know what Im going to say next…nutrition is a must. It goes hand in hand with getting that body that you want. And the important thing to remember is that its not going to happen over night. Consistent workouts and nutrition WILL bring consistent results. But you’ve got to work at it!
Now for those of you who PUSH hard for an hour or more each day, don’t hate me. Believe me, I love a good hour workout session. But lets face it. If you’re a single parent, a busy student, a busy parent, a busy business man/women or just don’t want to workout anymore than you have to, and you just want to be in shape and comfortable with your body, not pose for a magazine then a 30 minute workout IS the best solution and it does work!
Straight from Carl Diakelr (Beachbody Founder) “In the P90X3 test group with 40 participants and the average fat loss was 34%. This is unheard of!”
Check out and Ed and Tamara’s before and afters from the test group:
Let me tell you a little about each workout:
P90X3: This workout of course it 30 minutes and is 6 days a week with an optional 7th day workout. If you need extra time to warm up you can select that option and then move on to the workout. The workout itself is just 30 minutes. So you can get in and out and be done. If you’ve never used a workout from Tony Horton then let me break it down. Those of you who have will know what Im talking about. Tony (at least to me) is hilarious. He uses humor through the entire workout so its not boring at all. A LOT of the moves are centered around you own body and weight. Lots of balance building moves and believe it or not that burns fat and builds muscle, more so than going to the gym and using machines. (He actually says that) There are pull ups, which you can modify that with bands if you don’t have a bar. Simple things like dumbbells, weighted balls or even a basket ball, resistance bands and just you. Tony is the modern day Arnold Schwarzenegger, at least in my eyes. He knows his stuff. I highly recommend this workout to anyone. You don’t have to do any of the previous P90X workouts to do X3. Its well balanced and has an awesome and easy to follow nutrition guide. Its a great mix of cardio, MMX and resistance workouts. Better than any gym in my book!
T25: Shaun T created T25. This dude doesn’t play around! Same scenario as X3. This is a 25 minute workout 5 days a week with a 3 minute cool down after each workout, so a total of about 28 minutes. Friday’s are whats called double days. So you do 2 25 minute workouts on Friday. It was a shocker for me when I got it. But I easily figured out on the Fridays that I only had 25 minutes to spare then I could make up the second workout on Saturday. The results weren’t hindered to my knowledge. The workout is I would say about 75% cardio. There are moves and workouts that use a light weight dumbbell or a resistance band. I love T25 durning that 90 days. Actually though, T25 is only a 60 day program with the option to get the Gamma series to extend it another 30 days. If you like lots of cardio, I recommend this workout. Again anyone can do this. All levels of fitness. I mean you gotta start somewhere right? X3 and T25 are great for starters to extreme fitness level. Good stuff.
BodyBeast: Im not sure it’s fare to put this workout in the short workout category but Im going to anyway. This particular is based on building muscle. Don’t let that fool you though. You can lose weight and tone up with this workout. And believe it or not its quit popular with the ladies. And you don’t have to fear, if you don’t want to get bulky but simply ton and create muscle this is a great workout. You do need equipment though. You can check out my BodyBeast page to see what all equipment you need or search for some related post for some more info. As far as time, during the first 4 weeks I think the workouts are around 45 to 55 minutes. During your Bulk phase (don’t worry about the name) the workouts are 28 to 35 minutes. So kinda short. Either way I love this program. In fact Im testing my own BodyBeast/P90X3 hybrid right now. More on that in a later post.
*21 Day Fix: What is 21 Day Fix? 21 Day Fix is THE fitness and nutrition program to help you lose up to 15 pounds in 21 days. Each workout is approximately 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week. The unique nutrition plan uses specifically portioned food storage containers that eliminate the guesswork from portion control – no weighing, measuring, or counting calories, carbs or points. If it fits in the container, you can eat it. And you’ll lose weight. When eaten in the right quantities, there are no foods that are off limits. Who can do the program? Everyone can do 21 Day Fix and get great results. Each workout has a modifier to show easier moves. The test groups included fit people as well as people with 100+ pounds to lose, to be sure that anyone could be successful with this program.
Ok so theres the scoop. There are plenty of resource here to help you make an informed decision. Of course when you get one of the awesome workouts from this sight, you get me as your personal Team Beachbody Coach for free!
