The 21 Day Fix program takes the guesswork out of weight loss. It’s a unique portion-control system combined with easy-to-follow workouts that fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Trainer Autumn Calabrese shares her passion for food and fitness as she shows you how to make simple choices that add up to life-changing results.IMG_8546

 

The 21 Day Fix comes with these cool colored containers. And each one is assigned a food group. There’s no calorie or fat or carb counting. If it fits in the container, you eat it. And you get a certain number of each color each day. This number varies by your size and weight and activity level. You can also use this system to lose weight by working at a calorie deficit OR you can use it just to stay healthy by not working at a calorie deficit!

The 21 Day Fix exercise program consists of 2 DVDs that have 3 workouts out (6 in total). Each workout is crafted to deliver a “massive calorie burn” in just 30 minutes. Every workout is different and increases in difficulty from the previous workout and comes with a modifier so you scale the intensity level of the workout up or down to meet your personal comfort.
The first 15 days consists of doing 1 workout/day, then on the last week you have the option to complete one workout in the morning and another in the evening.

The workouts are:

  • workout-programTotal Body Cardio Fix. Rises your heart rate, boost your metabolism into overdrive for long-lasting weight loss benefits.
  • Upper Fix. Specifically works the back, shoulders, arms, chest and abs for a great swimsuit body.
  • Lower Fix. Works the thighs, calves and butt for the rest of your beach-ready body.
  • Pilates Fix. Uses core strength moves to tone and elongate the torso and tighten up your thighs, butt and hips.
  • Cardio Fix. Insanity cardio workout that kicks the first workout into overdrive.
  • Yoga Fix. Boosts flexibility and relaxes your muscles to keep them in perfect tone.

From yoga to pilates to cardio, the workouts are well crafted, inspiring, simple and exciting!

What is a Challenge Group?

 A challenge group is a private group hosted on Free Tracker App where a bunch of people all start and go through their fitness programs together. It’s a safe and inspiring space where you can find accountability and daily motivation from yours truly! I will discuss topics like emotional eating, eating out, menu plans, temptations, late-night snacking and whatever the group decides is relevant to them in their goals . I will give you lots of my tips and tricks to keep you moving in the right direction. At the end of the 21 days we will measure progress and you have the option to continue or move on! The only cost is the cost of the challenge pack which includes everything you need to get started.  The 21 day nutrition guide, the program manual, the workouts, a month’s supply of Shakeology, discounted shipping, discounted price and me as your coach!

My Results

A few years ago my tank ran out of gas. I am a mother of four, homeschooling while working part-time and being in college full time. My days were fueled by energy drinks and Starbucks, but I was still barely making it by. During my late night study sessions and paper writing it was like I was experiencing the “freshman fifteen” all over again. I knew something had to change.

I saw advertisement for the 21 Day Fix and I jumped on board committing to a challenge group, but super scared this wasn’t going to work. Within those 21 days big changes were happening in my life. Eating clean and exercising were transforming my body all with the help of Shakeology. Cravings went down and my energy went up. In just 21 Days I lost 7 pounds and 16 inches!
