What is the difference between 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME?
21 Day Fix EXTREME takes the proven fitness and nutrition approach of the original to the next level with cleaner eating and more challenging workouts. Fix EXTREME still uses simple boot camp style workouts for 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week, but at much higher intensity: most moves are weighted; breaks are shorter; there are more options to add intensity; and even the modified moves are more challenging. Fix EXTREME’s nutrition plan still uses simple portion control, but this time the eating is 100% clean: treats like wine or chocolate are no longer allowed; many less nutritious food options have been removed; there are new clean recipes; and Autumn’s personal “Countdown to Competition” plan, designed to get anyone in competition-level shape in just 21 days, is a new option. Both programs are based on easy-to-follow workout moves and simple portion control.
Who should buy the program?
21 Day Fix EXTREME is ideal for those with a dramatic short-term weight loss deadline–such as an upcoming vacation, photo shoot, or other big event. It’s an excellent next step for 21 Day Fix graduates ready for a new challenge or graduates of other extreme programs like P90X, Insanity, and FOCUS T25. FixEXTREME is also great for those who don’t have much weight to lose, but want to get shredded and see abs; those with a “no BS” attitude toward workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn’t want to count calories, weigh their food, or follow complicated recipes.
What do I need for the workouts?
You’ll need a set of light dumbbells (recommend: women – 3-5 pound, men – 8-10 pound), a set of heavy dumbbells (recommend: women – 8-15 pound, men – 15-25 pound) and a resistance band (15 pound). These are suggested weights, you may require more or less resistance.
How long is each workout?
What is the workout schedule?
1 workout a day, for 21 days.
What size workout space is needed?
6 square feet of space is recommended.
Will I be hungry?
You will be getting plenty of food in proper portions spread throughout the day if you follow the plan the way it is laid out for you. You should not be hungry.
What do I do if I get hungry?
I personally believe that this is not actual hunger, but thirst or a habit (nighttime eating). What works for me is having a glass of water, drinking a cup of herbal tea (no caffeine) that is tasty to you (I like White Tea Pomegranate from Trader Joe’s, or Herbal Passion Tazo Tea), or brushing my teeth!
How does Shakeology fit into the 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme Meal Plans?
