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:
- Total 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 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!
