Okay. Now I am a true Beachbody lover and advocate and as you can see I have tried many of their workouts (plus some I am not reviewing because I did not complete the full calendar program) and I have to say 21 Day Fix Extreme is probably my favorite! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this program!
You WILL see results with 21DFX and it only takes 30 minutes a day. Again, the only downside is that you need a few weights, plus a resistance band and preferably a yoga mat. It has the same format as 21DF but quite a bit more jumping and heart pounding, blood rushing, muscle aching workouts. These are much more difficult to complete but all of the exercises have a modifier who alters the workout to make it just a bit easier. Below is the calendar.
Day 1 = Plyo Fix Extreme
Day 2 = Upper Fix Extreme
Day 3 = Pilates Fix Extreme
Day 4 = Lower Fix Extreme
Day 5 = Cardio Fix Extreme
Day 6 = Dirty 30 Fix Extreme
Day 7 = Yoga Fix Extreme
The thing about 21DFX is that I truly looked forward to working out. The moves are so completely unique and complex and just plain fun to do!
What I love about the Beachbody programs is most of them come with a meal plan and can all be streamed on your phone or laptop at home. I love coming home and doing the workouts while prepping dinner or doing chores because I always need a longer break than is given between reps. If you are the self-disciplines type who will turn on the workout day after day then I highly recommend Beachbody, but if you are the type that needs a little more accountability, maybe one of the gyms or programs I will be talking about in later blog posts will be better suited for you.
Right now Beachbody is offering their All-Access Pass which includes EVERY Beachbody workout (600+ workouts) and all of the meal plans for 3-months for $39 OR the 12-month Challenge Pack which includes all of the workouts and meal plans for an entire year for $160 plus a 30-day supply of Shakeology.
Shakeology is known as your “daily dose of dense nutrition” – kind of like a protein shake on steroids, but not actually steroids. There are many testimonials on how it changed peoples lives but I have to say I probably wouldn’t order it again, but what do I know?! More than anything, the price was just a huge turn off for me. It is $130 per month with a small discount if you are a Beachbody Coach or if you have it set to a subscription instead of just ordering it one month at a time. They do offer vegan options too and to be honest I enjoyed the taste of the vegan chocolate much better than the regular even though I am not vegan.
