What is the 21 Day Fix Extreme?

In June of 2014, I took a leap of faith and messaged a friend from college about an upcoming challenge group that she was holding on Facebook. I had struggled to lose the weight that I had gained during my pregnancy and this was the last thing that I would try before accepting my new body. The Beachbody program that I used during that challenge group was the 21 Day Fix by Autumn Calabrese. It has forever changed my outlook on health and fitness.

Looking back, it was the BEST message that I ever sent! Being a part of the challenge group was a pivotal moment, not just in my health and fitness, but also in my life. It gave me back my confidence, my pre-pregnancy body, and MYSELF. The portioned controlled containers, easy to follow food list and 30 minute workouts gave me the success story that I am today!

Autumn is now releasing a NEW workout program called the 21 Day Fix Extreme --- and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! It is a different, yet similar, approach to the 21 Day Fix, except this time it is extreme fitness. It's about taking your body to its limit and seeing just how far you can go in 21 days.

Let's take a look at the basics of the 21 Day Fix Extreme and what it is all about.

Who is the 21 Day Fix Extreme for?

21 Day Fix EXTREME is ideal for those with a dramatic short-term weight loss deadline--such as an upcoming vacation, photo shoot, or other big event. It's an excellent next step for 21 Day Fix graduates ready for a new challenge or graduates of other extreme programs like P90X, Insanity, and FOCUS T25. Fix EXTREME is also great for those who don't have much weight to lose, but want to get shredded and see abs; those with a "no BS" attitude toward workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn't want to count calories, weigh their food, or follow complicated recipes.

I MUST note that I would NOT recommend this program for beginners. This is an intense program meant for people who already have a solid base of health and nutrition. If you are like the sounds of the Fix, then let's chat about some similar options that would be great precursors for the 21 Day Fix Extreme -- such as the original 21 Day Fix.

What are the DETAILS about the program?
  • 1 30 minute workout each day
  • 21 total days
  • You will not lead a lot of space; just allow 6 square feet of space (push that coffee table out of the way!)
  • Cross training shoes are recommended for the workouts
What workouts are included with the program?
Plyo Fix Extreme, Upper Fix Extreme, Lower Fix Extreme, Pilates Fix Extreme, Cardio Fix Extreme, Dirty 30 Fix Extreme  and 
Yoga Fix Extreme. 

If you order through a coach, you will receive a bonus workout. PLUS there are two additional workouts available for purchase: Power Strength Extreme and ABC Extreme.

Nutrition Details
Just like the 21 Day Fix, the basis of this nutrition plan is clean eating and portion control. However, where the 21 Day Fix allowed for wine and chocolate, the EXTREME does NOT. As Autumn says in her workouts --- if you want something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done! ANYONE can cut out wine and chocolate for 21 days. I am 100% positive that your results will be worth the sacrifice. Remember, abs are made in the kitchen!

Your portioned containers come with the program when you purchase it.

The launch date for the 21 Day Fix Extreme is set for February 2nd. I will have an exclusive 21 Day Fix Extreme challenge group that I will be running.
