Beachbody 21 Day Fix Fitness program

This Beachbody 21 Day Fix Review is going to focus on the workouts, nutrition and cost. All 3 factors are important to consider before you buy a program. Let's start by looking at the workouts.

21 Day Fix Review - The Workouts

Have you ever seen an infomercial for a piece of equipment that promises to sculpt and tone a specific body part. Some examples include 3 Minute Legs and 60 Second Abs. Having a background in fitness, I tend to laugh at these products. Why would you pay a bunch of money for a product that only works 1 area of your body. The 21 Day Fix is not one of those products, which I like about it. The program consists of 6 different workouts, which are;
Upper Fix. This workout utilizes resistance training to help shape your chest, back, shoulders, arms, and abs.
Lower Fix. This workout focuses on firming and toning your entire lower body while you blast fat and burn calories.

Total Body Cardio Fix. This one keeps your heart rate up and your metabolism revved, helping you burn calories all day long.

Cardio Fix. This workout does what cardio is designed to do, get your heart pumping and your body moving.

Pilates Fix. Strengthen your core, elongate your muscles, and firm your hips and thighs.

Yoga Fix. Improve your balance, flexibility, and strength as you help relax your muscles.

As you can see, this program covers every part of your body, which I believe is crucial for an effective program.

However, if you are used to tougher workouts, such as P90X or Insanity, you may be disappointed in these workouts. They are challenging, but not as much as some of Beachbody's tougher programs.

Looking At The Nutrition

Nutrition is an area that most people struggle with. It can be very challenging to know how much you should eat of what. I love the approach that Autumn Calabrese, the trainer behind The 21 Day Fix, has used in this program. She has made it simple with a simple portion control system. The program includes 7 different containers for your food. They are color coated based on which type of food goes in it.

Blue-Healthy Fats and Cheese
2 Orange-Seeds and Oils

You simply fill each container with what is supposed to go in it, and that is your food for the day.

21 Day Fix Review - If It Worth It

The workouts work your total body, and the nutrition has been simplified. The last component to look at is the price. I was surprised when I saw the price of this program. It retails for $59.95. That price includes the 6 workouts, the color coated containers, and Beachbody throws in some bonus incentives.

Overall, my 21 Day Fix Review is that this program is easily worth the cost. If you would like to learn more about this program, visit

Starting the Supreme 90 DVD workouts

I am so excited to share my first rotation of the year! I really wanted to get into heavy weight training along with eventually running. I thought I was going to do a modified Cathe strength training rotation but found Supreme 90 day workout at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $9.99 How can you go wrong there! I have been eyeing Chalene’s Johnson Chalene Extreme and Beachbody P90x for years but am way to cheap to pay over $100.

The Supreme 90 Day workout comes with 10 dvds featuring personal trainer Tom Holland and , a nutrition plan from clean eating expert Tosca Reno, free online support, & a 90 day support chart. I have been for the most part clean eating and going to use the structure that Tosca recommends.

The work out include Chest & Back; Chest, Shoulders & Triceps; Ultimate Ball; Tabata Inferno; Shoulders & Arms; Cardio Challenge; Core Dynamics; Legs; Total Body; Back & Biceps;. Of course you need a dumbbell and this workout does need stability exercise ball. Right now my heaviest dumbbells are 15lbs so I will need to go out and buy some more. My husband is checking these great bowflex adjustable weights. so we won't need to have weights all over the house.  They are pricey but he thinks it is well worth it.

I am not expecting to get totally buff from doing this for 90 days but want to lose inches in my waist and I would be happy with being 15-20lbs down over the 90 days plus about 4-5  inches in the tummy area.

I have a done a few of the workout so far and they are great. I am really feeling it in my muscles so far. They are very core intensive which is a problem area for me!

Jennifer Rumple Biggest Loser clean eating tips

I am a huge fan of the Biggest loser and also of Jennifer Rumple the season 12 at home winner. I have always felt that I could relate to her since we are fairly close in age. She shared some great simple tips on clean eating and since I have been really trying to “eat clean’ rather than follow a specific diet plan.  Sometimes I over analyze what I should be eating-Jennifer's post kind of shook me back to reality.


1) DO NOT EAT ANYTHING PROCESSED. Anything in a box, a can, a package ... do not buy. Do not eat. You'll be amazed how your palate changes and no longer needs the sugary, salty, fatty stuff for things to taste yummy! Trust me on this! Just give your taste buds time to adjust.
2) Stick to lean meats like chicken, turkey, fish, egg whites. Red meat is okay on occasion, but be sure it's a lean cut and ONLY on occasion.
3) Write down everything you put in your mouth and track your calories all day long. It's the best way to monitor your intake of food ... and know when you've hit your limit and you need to STOP!
4) Complex carbs are okay. Whole foods like apples, carrots, wheat pasta, multi-grain breads/cereals. Our bodies need these carbs because they contain incredible nutrients. I try to limit my carbs in the evening. Remember one of Bob's Harper MANY truths ... "LEAN AND GREEN!"
5) Water, water, water, water. And when you think you've had enough for the day ... have another glass! :) It's key!
