NEW 21 Day Fix EXTREME Review! New EXTREME Workouts by Autumn Calabrese


The 21 Day Fix is one of my favorite programs.  With is simple easy to follow portion control container meal plan system and 30 minute workouts, this program is really the knock out punch for those struggling with diet and exercise.  It completely simplifies it and teaches you the basics!

Now Autumn Calabrese has come out with new workouts and meal plan for even better results with the 21 Day Fix Extreme.  This program builds off the basics of the 21 Day Fix and takes it to the next level.  This combined with Shakology is the perfect trifecta for getting fit and healthy.  Combining no- nonsense portion control (yep, tightening the options of what can go in the containers for those who want to get serious) with heart rate pumping cardio, resistance training and explosive power moves- this program is a complete FUNCTIONAL fitness program that will tone and target every muscle in your body.  When you work more muscle groups at once... you burn more calories while getting stronger!


Here is a sneak peak of the new 21 Day Fix Extreme Workouts

 She is a celebrity fitness trainer and national-level bikini competitor. A rising star in the fitness community, she's made a name for herself by helping people lose weight and get fit through simple portion control and consistent exercise.  She created the original 21 Day Fix which is available now!

What will the new 21 Day Fix Extreme program contain? 
The 21 Day Fix EXTREME will be exactly that – extreme compared to the original program (which is no joke!). It will include total body workouts that mix steady state aerobics, resistance training, and explosive power moves for max results.


Will there be a Modifier in the 21 Day Fix EXTREME program?
There will be a modifier just like Kat was in the 21 Day Fix, but we do encourage you to start with the 21 Day Fix and move to the Extreme. These EXTREME workouts will be harder, include more weights, and the meal plan will take out the treats and wine…..but it’s just 3 weeks! :) There will be a cardio fix, pilates fix, Dirty 30 workout, and more resistance training along with plyo moves! People in the Test group have shared that these workouts are no joke. 

How long are the workouts?
All of the workouts will be 30 minutes just like the original 21 Day Fix.

Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins Recipe- 21 Day Fix Approved!


1 c Oat Flour (just grind your quick oats until it becomes a flour in your blender. It does not need to be really fine)

-In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, milk, vanilla, and peppermint extract.
-Stir in the maple syrup and Truvia. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated.

Notes: If you can’t find peppermint baking chips, chop up peppermint Andes mints or peppermint bark instead.

If you are on the fix, one muffin is one red, one yellow.
