The 21 Day Fix Workout Program

Below is the 21 Day Fix workout schedule:

workouts schedule

The 21 Day Fix program comes with 2 DVDs which hold a total of 6 workouts. Each of these workouts is designed to ensure that you experience massive calorie burn in a 30 minute session. The workouts are all unique, and they focus on different aspects of your body for maximum fitness benefits.

One of the best features of 21 Day Fix is the modifier, who takes into account your fitness level and your injury status (a modifier is an onscreen instructor who performs a low intensity version of each workout). This ensures that you are comfortable and safe throughout your routines.

dvdDuring the first 2 weeks of the program you will be taking part in one workout per day, however, during the last week of the program you have the opportunity to take part in a doubles workout (1 workout in the morning and 1 workout in the evening).

Description of the workouts:

  1. Total Body Cardio Fix: Elevates your heart rate and improves your metabolism, resulting in lasting weight loss advantages.
  2. Upper Fix: Targets your back, chest, shoulders, abs, and arms, for a sculpted upper body.
  3. Lower Fix: Targets your thighs, butt, and calves.
  4. Pilates Fix: Sculpts your torso and tones your butt, hips, and thighs, through core strength exercises.
  5. Cardio Fix: Heightens your cardio exercise for improved cardio performance.
  6. Yoga Fix: Increases flexibility and tones your muscles.

Each of these workouts has been carefully crafted to give you a stimulating and enjoyable workout experience.

21 Day Fix Eating Plan

Unlike most nutritional programs which put you on a strict diet, 21 Day Fix uses a portion control system to ensure optimized health benefits. This precise portion control system uses a color coded system of containers for food and a Shakeology shaker cup for drinks.

color coded containersSay goodbye to counting and measuring calories! With the 21 Day Fix eating plan you can eat as much food as can fit into the container while still losing weight.

  1. Green container for vegetables
  2. Purple container for fruits
  3. Red container for proteins
  4. Yellow container  for carbs
  5. Blue container for healthy fats and cheeses
  6. 2 Orange containers for seeds and dressings
  7. Shakeology cup for drinks

Meal Plan Tips and Tricks

  1. The 21 Day Fix eating plan will show you how to determine your caloric intake (target calories), so that you know how many color coded containers you will be using on a daily basis. Use this simple calculation to find out your target calories:

target calories

%MINIFYHTML7e937786e68a7e1ee0983a021367510b4%

  1. Once you know your target calories, you can determine the precise number of containers and teaspoons (nut butter, oils, seed butter) allocated to you on a daily basis. As you can see from the table below, you will fall into one of 4 target calorie groups:

intake-needs

  1. If your target calories are below 1200, then you will be in the 1200-1499 group. If your target calories are above 2300, then you will be in the 2100-2300 group.
  2. The simplicity of this program is amazing. You don’t have to count the calories of your food, instead, just fill up the containers with the corresponding food group.

P.S. There is a food list that comes with the program which outlines the most nutritious food in each food group. Use this to make your meal planning easier.

  1. The portion control system in 21 Day Fix is not restrictive; allowing you to comfortably develop a healthy lifestyle that you can maintain after the program is done.
  2. Meal planning is very flexible, and you can consume your containers in the manner of your choice throughout the day. However, it is advised for you to consume 6 small meals (2 hours apart) or 3 large meals and 2-3 snacks each day.
  3. When it comes to drinks, you can consume soy milk, coconut milk, coconut water, almond milk, and fruit juice 3 times a week. However, each of these drinks is equivalent to a yellow container.
  4. Coffee and tea is allowed in the program, and drinking loads of water is advised.
  5. If you feel hungry during the day add an extra green container, as it is unlikely that you will overindulge in veggies.

    Hi I’m thinking of ordering this I’ve gained 40lbs in the last year. Recently quit smoking, started smoking again three weeks again.. I hope this can help me! Does this really work?

    I completed the 21 day fix and lost 16lbs and even better I got my abs back 🙂 🙂

    The only problem we experienced with the 21 day fix was that it was too much food for one person, but we downsized the portions and got great results!

    Going for another run in two weeks time!!!!

    I have been doing the 21 DF and the fix it recipe book has helped me a lot. I want to be able to just cook dinner and not think about the diet. This cookbook gives delicious recipes that I can incorporate into my dinner and lunch repertoire and its just dinner. It’s great!

    With more than 120 pounds to lose, I am wondering if this would work for me. Very low energy levels. Exercising 7 days a week sounds very difficult but if there is truly a “modifier” then just maybe. I am just afraid I will get frustrated and quit if I am unable to keep up. Suggestions?

    Reply

      I just received my 21 DF in the mail today. I did the Cardio Fix exercise on Beachbody On Demand and there was a modifier. I believe all of the BB programs have a modifier in every routine, but I could be wrong. Every program I have done has had a modifier. Since you say you have 120 pounds to lose, you will likely do more rounds of the program to reach your end goal, but you will get better every time! You can do it!

      Hey Angie – there are modifiers I believe. Plus you sort’ve just do it at your own level. I know a couple people who are doing it right now (I’m utilizing the containers but doing a different program)… plus with any Beachbody program you *should* get a free coach who’s supposed to help / guide you through the program. Find a good one online or you’ll also be assigned one randomly 🙂

      I’m a coach… but I”m just leaving this as honest feedback! <3 Best of luck!

      Weight loss comes down to calories consumed – calories burned. I went from almost 300 pounds and now i’m down in the 170s and I didn’t exercise until I was in the 170s. Cut out alcohol and sugary drinks (including fruit juices) and that will get you started in the right direction. The hardest part is not giving into your cravings when you are at home watching TV or bored. You can do it just have faith in yourself.

      The workouts have someone doing the modified versions. I am not in shape…but working towards getting there. I enjoy the workouts and I do modify some of them.

      Angie, I started the 21 day fix in November of 2015, 100 pounds overweight, and followed Kat (the modifier) and just did what I could. You start where you are, and dont worry about what anyone else is doing. I have lost about 45 pounds so far, and will continue on my journey. Start where you are, dont worry about anyone else. YOU are worth the effort….consistency is the key, both for the exercise and the eating plan 🙂

      Angie, I started the 21 day fix 5 days ago with the urging of my daughter who started it 3 weeks ago. I am a 57 year old grandma who works full time and have developed the “middle age spread’ I’m probably 20 lbs. Overweight. My daughter is a busy mom who’s a jewelry store manager who puts in a lot of hours per week. She is on the go with her 6 year old too. She is about 100 lbs. overweight. She said she finally hit a brick wall and thought that’s it, I’m not going to be here for my son or family if I don’t do something. So she started and in the first 3 weeks she lost 12 lbs.and 6 inches. I’m so proud of her.you can do it Angie. I don’t do very well but I’m trying I’ve had 2 whiplashes and have a bad lower back. I do the modified ones. My daughter says it was very hard for her and is getting better. She’s determined. We are in a facebook group that really encourage each other. I hope you give it a try Angie! At first it bothered me seeing fit people on the videos but Autumn is great! Please consider it. Ifeels you decide you want to try it i can have you contact my coach, he’s great!

    I am 60 years old and have 100 lbs to lose so it is ok to use this for several months at a time? After reading these reviews I am excited to buy it. I am so tired of being overweight.

      The thing with this “diet” is that it easily teaches a healthy whole foods lifestyle. After you’re finished the 21 days, you’ll have a pretty basic understanding of what you should be eating daily- if you change things up, for instance, if you add more fruits and veg than required by the diet, you get more bulk without much more calories. It’s not going to make a huge difference. Just be careful with the oils as they have the most calories.

      Exactly! you need to move to the next upper level. Don’t forget to drink a lot of water to keep a good milk supply. The 21 day fix eating plan will benefit your baby too because it’s one of the most healthiest diets in the market.

    good morning, I have started this program and I love how easy it is and that you have total control as to what you are eating. my question is, can I use any protein shake with fruit to substitute a meal? wishing everyone the best journey.

    Reply
    1. Holly D. Moore (Post author)

      Yes absolutely! You can use a protein shake, it counts as a red container, then use a purple container to mesure your fruit portion.
      Good luck.

    Can you aim for a lower calorie intake than your target calories indicatet? Will this harm you, or cause problems to your body or cause the diet not to work right? I have this plan already.

    Thanks

      Hi
      What is your target calories? Anyway i would say that it is not recommended to go with a lower level, why? because when you start doing your exercises and stick with them (and not cheating!) you can eat that much and still have a calorie deficit.
      Good luck.

    I’m just researching the 21 day fix, reading up on the program and don’t understand (as of yet) the portions with containers
    Please elaborate? As containers hold 2oz to 8oz
    Does this mean i’m allowed to eat the number assosicated with each container, (3 containers of veggies, 2 fruit, 1 protein etc)…
    Thanks

      Hi jane
      For example if you are in the first bracket of 1200-1499, you will need to eat each day: 3 containers of veggies, 2 fruits, 4 proteins, 2 carbs, 1 fats, 1 seeds/dressings and two teaspoons of nut butter, oils or seed butter.
      Hope that helps

    How often can you do the 21 day plan? What do you do after the 21 days?

    Reply
    1. Holly D. Moore (Post author)

      The program comes with a maintenance guide if you are planning to keep off the weight you lost and not wishing to lose more, but if you still have pounds to lose then you should do as many rounds as possible until you get to your desired weight. The 21 day fix teaches healthy eating with simple exercices for everyone, that’s why it is safe to use as long as you wish.
      Best Regards.

      You can use kidney beans, there are some chili recipes that are approved by the 21 day fix. Just do a quick search on pinterest.

      In the Eating Plan, look under the yellow container, the fourth one down says Beans (kidney, black, garbanzo, white, lima, etc.)

    I am 58 years old, out of shape and look terrible. I just ordered this system. The calorie counter says for me to have 1146 calories, so I would eat based on 1200 calories? That seems like way too much food – is it going to make me gain weight instead of lose? 18 months ago I was a healthy 124 pounds but am now 136 after a cancer surgery. I want my body back!

    1. Holly D. Moore (Post author)

      Hi Judy
      You are on the lowest level so it’s really impossible for you to go under that. One particular thing that i always say to my readers is that the workouts will cause a massive calorie burn, that’s why you will need to eat well according to your caloric level.
      Good luck

      You can still do the 21 day fix without problem when you are a vegetarian. The eating plan book comes with a guide that recommends using many varieties of beans (cooked or drained), quinoa or lentils as protein (Red), there is a few other examples in the book.

    I am excited to try this program… I just have a couple questions. I eat a 2 egg omelet a couple times a week. Do I measure the eggs in the protein portion cup before cooking (out of shell) or after cooking? Also, I eat dry cereal (original cheerios or grapenuts) a couple times a week, do those qualify as healthy carbs, or which container would I use to measure a serving?

    Reply
    1. Holly D. Moore (Post author)

      Hi
      Good question here! Always measure your foods after they’ve been cooked. Dry cereals count as carbs, so you need to forgo a yellow containers.
      Hope that helps.

      Hi Jenny,

      Two eggs equal one red, you don’t have to measure it in the red container. In the Eating Plan under the red container it shows eggs 2 equals one red.
