Short on time but need to fit in some cardio? Well, I have the perfect 20 minute high intensity workout for you that will have you sweating in no time! My favorite piece of cardio equipment at my gym is the stepmill. If your gym does not have one then I suggest cranking that treadmill up to an incline of 10 or more and work those hamstrings and glutes!
I was first fully introduced to the Beachbody programs this time last year when a few coworkers and I decided to do the 21 Day Fix Extreme program together. Although my journey to being fit and healthy started about 5 years ago, I am human and there have been many ups and downs along the way. Last summer we bought a new house that needed many renovations. I put my workouts off and focused on my house. Then, in the fall, I got a new job and that became my focus (in addition to family of course). My weight slowly started to climb and I was definitely no longer “fit”. Spring break was just around the corner and the thought of wearing my bikini made me nervous and uncomfortable.
I didn’t know exactly what I was getting into but the idea of only working out 30 minutes a day and using color coded food containers to meal prep intrigued me. The 21 Day Fix program and the 21 Day Fix Extreme provides 7 fun and effective workouts and a simple way to figure out your diet with the use of 7 color coded food containers. The eating plan has color coded squares that correspond with the food container. There was no weighing of my food, counting macros, measuring, etc. If your food fits into the container you can eat it! The workouts were awesome and offered tons of variety. There was a different discs for each day of the week. At the end of the 21 days we only did each disc three times. It never got boring and my body always felt challenged. My coworkers and I created an excel spreadsheet to make the food tracking a little bit easier and worked out together on lunch when we could. If we didn’t fit in the workouts during the day we held each other accountable and finished on our own at home. We created are own mini challenge group and motivated each other. I noticed changes in my energy and body after the first week and that provided extra motivation. After the 21 days I was 10lbs lighter, dropped 2 pants sized and rocked my bikini at spring break. This by far has been my best Beachbody program experience and I would recommend this program to anyone (male or female) looking for a balanced plan that involves strength training, cardio, Pilates and yoga.
I am so excited about this program and how it can help others reach their goals that I will be starting a 21 Day Fix challenge group March 14th 2016. The best part about doing the 21 Day Fix program right now is that it is currently $70 off through the end of February. I can offer this great program to others for a really low price (much less than I paid). I will be posting additional information about the challenge group and requirements on my See Mom Lift facebook page. If you are positive you want to join I highly recommend buying your challenge pack this month, February 2016 while it is on sale. Contact me for more information or use the link at the bottom of this page.
Below is a video that describes the program in greater detail.
