21 Day Fix Extreme - coming February 2nd!

Do you LOVE the 21 Day Fix as much as we do?!  Awesome news!  Autumn Calabrese's brand new program - The 21 Day Fix EXTREME is coming February 2nd!


The extreme program will have all new, super intense workouts for anyone that needs a kick start to finally shred those last pounds, new containers for max results, and will feature a completely CLEAN meal plan which we totally love.

Each workout will also use a resistance band so if you're looking to tone up (without bulking up!) this program will be awesome.

The original 21 Day Fix is available now.  We absolutely love it because it has a 50% focus on healthy, clean eating & portion control & 50% focus on exercise ... all 30 minute, at-home workouts.  With the nutrition plan, there is no weighing, no counting calories, carbs or points ... if it fits in the containers, you can eat it!  And there is even room in the plan for the occasionally wine treat ;)

If you are having trouble coming up with recipes, we have been doing the program for quite some time now so have started to compile some our favorite, simple, go-to recipes & wanted to share them with you all!  If you join one of our challenge groups, you will get even more recipes, along with a full meal plan, one on one support & accountability.  If you're interested in joining a challenge, please follow us on Facebook.

Or if you just need extra support with your 21 Day Fix program, sign up to have us as your totally FREE COACH and get access to our private client club where we share more recipes, online support and fitness tips.

Clean Blueberry Oat Morning Muffins

From our skinny table to yours...

We LOVE having a quick go-to breakfast ready and waiting for us, as we are certainly not morning people ;)!  We thought we would test out our baking skills this morning and give 'clean' muffins a try! Holy yum were these muffins delish!  We have never been the BEST bakers so we really thought we would have to give this more than one try... but nope, we nailed it!!   Best part is they don't even taste like you're eating health food!

 
These are super easy to make.  We started by making our own 'oat flour' by pulsing the oats in the food processor until fine.  We then started adding in more ingredients to the oat flour.... bananas, applesauce, coconut oil, greek yogurt, vanilla extract, eggs and baking powder. 
 
Next step is to add lots of fresh blueberries to your batter!  Scoop out the batter into a greased muffin tin and bake until crispy brown! 
 


These super healthy clean muffins are also grain free!  No need to feel guilty after this breakfast :)  Enjoy!

21 Day Challenge ... are you IN?!

Are you ready to get back on track, create healthy habits in 2015, and see MAX results without starving yourself or spending hours in the gym?!

If so, it's time to invest in a NEW YOU this year & join our 21 Day Challenge Group starting January 26th!

* Due to high demand, we will be hosting one challenge group each month and would love to include you.  We keep the groups small to offer one-on-one support so please reserve a spot ASAP if you would like to join as it will fill up.  FYI: We will CLOSE the group to new challengers on January 18th! *


What's included in the 21 Day Challenge?

You will receive everything you need to succeed.  After chatting with us about your health & fitness goals, we will help you select the best workout program for YOU.  You will receive a workout program, nutrition plan, full access to us and daily accountability & support through our private Facebook group with other 21 Day challengers.  The best part?!  All workouts are done in the privacy of your own home, on your own schedule, without going to the gym ;)

Why 21 Days?

While this is a 21 Day Challenge, the goal is truly to create a LIFESTYLE change.  It takes 21 Days to make or break a habit.  The first 21 Days will be the hardest ... but if you can commit to give us 21 days (and we will be there to support you every step of the way!) we will teach you what building a healthy, balanced life is all about.  The 21 Day Challenge will teach you how to eat without depriving yourself, how to workout in proper form & provide you with healthy habits needed to live a fit, healthy life for good.

You will also gain lifetime access to our on-going private client group for ongoing support to ensure your success continues.


The 21 Day Challenge will focus on creating healthy eating & exercise habits so you will continue to see progress long after the challenge ... and we will still be there to support you through our private client group.

OK, 'I'm In!' ... now what?!

We will only be accepting TEN challengers as we want to ensure we have time to give everyone the individualized support they need to ensure success.  

BONUS!  The winner of the 21 Day Challenge will receive a healthy gift from us to celebrate their amazing results.  The winner is determined by the highest percentage of body weight lost.

21 DAY CHALLENGE = Nutrition + Fitness Workouts + Accountability
