My fav workout program is getting a baby sister!!! The 21 Day Fix is my soul mate program & taught me so much about nutrition & got me in the best shape of my life!! Part two gets released today!! I had amazing results in ONLY 21 Days and I LOVED IT!! I continue to eat this way because it gives me ENERGY and I feel amazing. I have Ulcerative Colitis and I need to be careful about what I eat — this program makes my tummy feel GOOD!! No pains and like I said — I have energy throughout my day!

MY 21 DAY FIX RESULTS:

The 21 Day Fix Extreme — It’s like the Fix but takes it up a notch or two!! I love a challenging workout and this, I have a feeling, will be challenging.
I cannot wait to start!!

*Thirty minute workouts (every workout includes weights, except for yoga)
*Simple, clean nutrition ((Autumn even shares her bikini comp prep meal planning)) — NO TREATS like wine and chocolate like in the 21 Day Fix. This program is more strict and WILL get you results. You can do anything for 21 days!!

 

Here is the scoop:

What are the workouts like?

The program comes with a total of SEVEN different workouts (you will also receive some bonus workouts too!!).

  • Upper Fix Extreme
  • Lower Fix Extreme
  • Pilates Fix Extreme
  • Yoga Fix Extreme
  • Cardio Fix Extreme
  • Plyo Fix Extreme
  • Dirty 30 Fix Extreme

Who is this program for??

This program is NOT for everyone! This program is not for those who haven’t worked out in a while, or who are new to fitness. I suggest if you are new to working out — try the 21 Day Fix first and THEN move on to this program.

However — if you have been working out and want and need a new, challenging workout program that will get you shredded in 21 days — this is it!! If you want ABS — this is it! If you have a few annoying lbs that won’t go away — this is your program!!

 

What equipment will I need? 

You will need a yoga mat (personal preference), also a light set of weights as as well as a heavier set (5 pounds and 8 pounds or 10 pounds). Some people prefer a fitness band instead of using weights.

Insanity Max 30 REVIEW

The holidays are just about OVER and everyone can now resume their regular schedules and routines! I don’t know about you — but I am a creature of habit and when my routines and schedules get changed, I feel a little uneasy! 😉 I am glad that this week will be back to normal and that I can finally have my routine back! The holidays were fun and I loved being able to see family and friends………..but I also love my own schedules! 😉

I am entering into week 3 of Insanity Max 30!! The first two weeks were a little difficult because 1. its a new program and I needed to adjust and 2.) the holiday temptations were EVERYWHERE!!! I did pretty well — I did have 2.5 glasses of vino on Christmas and did my best to stick to the eating plan. Let me tell you that it had a SERIOUS effect on my workout the following day!!! I was struggling!! I did it but it was rough. It just goes to show that diet and exercise go hand in hand!!!  I did eat clean and only had a few bites of hubby’s pie! I was pretty proud of myself haha!! Trust me — it could’ve been MUCH worse!! I just kept thinking — think about how you will feel tomorrow if you were to have an entire piece of pie! Also — I want to SEE results from this program and am DEDICATED to that and pie doesn’t necessarily fit into that mold! 😉

I have noticed that with each week, and with each workout — I get stronger!! It is such an awesome feeling!! I keep maxing out longer and longer and THAT in and of itself is progress to me — especially because I am NOT modifying!!! I will say — my stats have not changed one bit and I NOT letting that discourage me!!! My clothes are feeling looser and I am getting stronger with each workout and that is an AMAZING feeling!!

progress

 

SO — now that the Holidays are OVER and the routine is pretty much back (after NYE I’ll be SET!!) — I am bound and determined to have results from this program!!! I will be posting my 30 day results in 2 weeks!! EEEEEEEKKK!!! Scary – lol! Every day I push play, and follow the nutrition, have my Shakeology and get my sleep — I am one day closer to the finish line! This is a 60 day program and it promises serious results! Six more weeks — that is IT!!! I have a feeling that it will fly by. Each day — you need to DIG DEEP and PUSH yourself. When you feel like you can’t do anymore, do three! When you TELL yourself you can — you are halfway there!!!

mind over matter

 

NUTRITION is 80% of your results!! You cannot outrun your fork!! I am so glad that the holiday temptations are OVER and I have literally thrown away the extra cookies and cakes so that they won’t speak to me in times of weakness!! lol Clean eating will allow you to have HUGE results!!! Clean foods like fresh fruits and veggies, along with lean proteins and whole grains will work WITH your body, give you sustaining energy and help you lose pounds and inches naturally. No more spray butters, low-fat or fat-free anything!! No more soda or sugary drinks — eat CLEAN and your body, mind and energy levels will be fulfilled!!!!

Insanity MAX 30 is HERE!!

MAX 30

 

 

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! My Insanity Max30 arrived today and I AM SO EXCITED!!! I took some time to look over everything and to read the nutrition plan ANNNNNNND I even watched the first workout! I can’t wait!! It looks killer — but I AM READY!!! This program is for everyone who WANTS to bring their body to PEAK physical condition.YOU WILL GET RESULTS from this program — cardiovascular, strength, you will lose body fat and inches all while getting smaller and losing weight.

WHO IS MAX 30 ?

It is for everyone as there is a modifier! BUT — it will not be easy — but if you want results in 30 min/day — THIS is your thang!The modifier does not bring LESS intensity or LESS of a workout — it simply takes the impact out of the moves. You will STILL get a GREAT workout!! You cannot go wrong with this choice. Shaun T knows what he is doing and has created over 150 NEW moves for this workout!

 

max 30

 

 

Max30 is BOTH cardio AND strength training!!! I love, love, love, Insanity and LOVE how I feel when I am doing that program. Shaun T created THIS program because he wanted to make Insanity BETTER. This is that program.  I have YET to complete it because I feel like I am always awaiting a new program to start and in the meantime, I will piece together ones that I LOVE — for example, Insanity and Les Mills PUMP. ONE DAY – I WILL complete Insanity from start to finish! 😉

 

WHAT IS MAXING OUT??

This is when you are “sprinting” and PUSHING so hard through the moves — GOING HARD — and when you reach the point when you need a break. You take the break that you need and then jump back in! Shaun T even MAXES OUT! You will try to BEAT YOUR TIME the following week in that same workout so you are ONLY in competition with YOURSELF!! LOVE that!! ……….and I LOVE that each week you will get stronger!

 

WHAT IS THE NUTRITION PLAN LIKE?

Sooooo………this program is awesome because it focuses on portion control. What you put in your body, will show up on your body! EAT CLEAN! This program focuses on whole, clean foods so that your body is properly nourished and will give you ENERGY to sustain these workouts.

You have a few options as far as how much food you eat each day. The program follows a plan similar to that of the 21 Day Fix. So , I am allowed a certain number of proteins, fats and carbs each day.

The ONE thing I LOVE about this is that, it guides you to select the proper foods if you are starving during the day. So you start by selecting a fruit, then a carb, then a protein….

There is ALSO a “No Time To Cook” guide for all of us who are caught in the lurch and need to grab something quick ((WHICH WE SHOULD ALL BE PLANNING AHEAD for this to not happen, but it happens!)) that outlines what to grab that will best suit your body. There is also a guide to tell you how to eat when you are out to dinner, etc

0a486b1c9a620fd20dcb07372b312b83

FIVE DAYS/WEEK :: 30 MIN/DAY

Insanity Max 30 is the ONE workout that will allow you to ONLY be in competition with YOUrself! Each workout is only 30 minutes long.  Each day you need to keep a record of when you “max out” — or, when you need to stop and take a break. The idea is that as you progress through the 60 day program, you will see how much stronger and how much more physically fit you become because you will condition yourself to go longer and longer without needing to take a break.  The goal is to beat YOUR time from the previous week. The moves are BOTH cardio AND strength and you will only use your OWN BODYWEIGHT as your equipment! This program is five days/week, 30 minutes/day. Shaun T STRESSES the importance of the 2 rest days. They are important for your body to rest and recover. Rest and recovery is JUST as important to your workout as putting in the hard work through all of the sweat and maybe some tears! haha…

This program will CERTAINLY require you to DIG DEEP as Shaun T likes to say….and I LOVE that it will be a challenge and ONLY 30 minutes/day! As a busy mommy – I can’t really afford to spend MORE than that amount of time with each workout – so this will be perfect!

Here is a breakdown of the workouts within Max 30, broken down into Mont 1 & Month 2 for a total of 60 days:

((Low-Impact MODIFIER for all workouts!))

Month 1:
Cardio Challenge:
The 1st workout and you use it as your guide and your first “fit test”.
It is all cardio-based & comprised of —  4 1/2 minute interval/30 second rest.
Sweat Intervals:
Cardio-type intervals that will make you drip with sweat and it is formatted much like the intervals in “Cardio Challenge”.
Tabata Power:
Think  – Plyometrics & core work!  Great ab block in this one too!!
Friday Fight:
A killer workout to end the week!!
Bonus —> Pulse workout for Saturday ((optional)). It’s more of a pulse, balance, modifier type workout that focuses on core, balance and form.
MONTH 2
Workouts are still 30 minutes.
New workouts —>
Max Out Cardio & Max Out Sweat these include —  5 1/2 minutes of power moves and then you take a break!
Tabata Workout- Max out Strength and Max Out Power
45 seconds on 15 second rest for 6 rounds, plus a lil something “extra” at the end!
Friday Fight Round 2:
It’s just killer round 2. 🙂

BONUS workout available ONLY through a Beachbody Coach:

SWEAT FEST is the coach exclusive that you only get when you buy from a coach.  This  workout features old Insanity cast members and coaches. It is a FUN workout that can be thrown into this program for some fun and and to add on to any of the workouts!

Here is a video for you to see what it is all about! Shaun T is inviting you to MAX OUT!

 

Tracking calendars are also included for you to actually SEE how much you improve! I think this is such a great idea because even though you go maybe 8 minutes before “maxing out” – the prior week, you could have gone 5 minutes. It is so important for you to see your improvements and how much MORE you are accomplishing each week!

Nutrition Guide

Your nutrition is 70-80% of your results!!

This program also comes with a Nutrition Guide AND a Restaurant Guide! I know that there have been times when Challengers are not sure what to have while dining out and they want to stay on track. This program will help you to do that. Also, the nutrition guide follows an eating plan similar to that of the 21 Day Fix in terms of portion control (Deluxe Kit only) You can receive the same container system which makes things  SUPER easy to follow! Also — Shaun T guides you through instances when you feel extra hungry and you aren’t sure what to eat — you may need a carb, a protein or a fat. This guide will tell you what is best to eat for RESULTS! There is nothing worse than being starved and to be unsure what to eat because you still want to remain on track. It is IMPORTANT to EAT to see the results that you want – yet it is also important to eat the right foods.Portion control is used with this program and it is SUPER easy to follow!

Screen+Shot+2014-11-24+at+10.19.15+AM

The Deluxe Kit comes with 3 extra workouts and the portion controlled containers.

Lose Weight Now — The ONE Thing That Is Stopping You!

Do you want to know that #1 reason why people don’t achieve their fitness and weight loss goals??

 

reach goals

 

 

EXCUSES!!!

 

You’ve got ’em, we all do. Here are a few that I hear a lot:

“I don’t have the time”

“I have a family that won’t like it if I start cooking healthy.”

“……it’s expensive to eat healthy….”

“……it’s expensive to buy Shakeology…”

“I already have a routine and don’t like change”

 

The QUESTION is — Do you want to stay the same MORE than you want to CHANGE???

 

1378537_10152312726336436_71572707732291332_n

 

Your desire for change must be greater than your desire to stay the same in order for you create a catalyst for change.

What is your WHY? What would your reason be for starting to change, and starting to create a healthier lifestyle? Maybe it is so you can feel more confident. Maybe it’s because the doctor’s results weren’t positive and you need to get healthier. Here are just a FEW benefits or side effects of creating a healthy lifestyle:

*Weight loss

*Increased mood/reduction of depression

*Clothes fit better

*Feel more confident

*Sleep better

*Have more energy

*Increased health

*Reduce cholesterol, high blood pressure and chance of diabetes

*Increased metabolism

*Increased muscle tone

 

With all of these benefits, why WOULDN’T you want to make a change?? WHAT could be stopping you?? Even just giving yourself 30 minutes per day. A HALF HOUR of daily exercise coupled with healthy, clean eating can create dramatic results not only in your weight loss, but in your LIFE!! You don’t have to be perfect, you just need to be better than you were yesterday!!

DITCH the excuses!! YOU are worth MORE!! Your excuses will get you nowhere, but determining that you deserve a live worth living, will get you places!! If you want to start with one of my challenge groups, simply complete the application below! Let me help you get started on a new YOU!
