CORE DE FORCE is my second favorite Beachbody program (next only to 21 Day Fix Extreme). The workouts were so fun and educational. I use to belong to a kickboxing gym a few years back and really loved it, so when I saw CORE DE FORCE I thought, eh, I’ll give it a whirl. After the first workout I was sweating like crazy but not as out of breath as some of my other workouts so I thought maybe it wasn’t quite up to my intensity level, until I woke up the next morning. I was sore from head to toe, especially in my core.
CORE DE FORCE workouts are MMA inspired. The workouts do not require any equipment, which is nice and are about 40 minutes long each. They are broken down into “rounds.” Each round consists of a 1-minute combo followed but a 20 or 30 (I can’t remember) second high intensity spike and then you repeat that combo and spike 2x to equal a round. The number of rounds varies depending on the workout.
All of the workouts are really fun and educational. Each workout comes with a 3-6 minute instructional video on how to throw a punch or kick with correct form. You can go all out with your speed and intensity or you can easily slow it down and focus on form and still get a fantastic workout.
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.
