WHO: Who is the 21 Day Fix Extreme for? Anyone! This program is a more intense version of the original with a slightly stricter nutrition plan (no cheats allowed, no wine, no eating out). This program is based on basic principles of balance and clean eating. It can easily be adapted for people with dietary restrictions like vegetarians, vegans, GF, paleo and primal lifestyles! In fact, I shared all about how I make the 21 Day Fix work for me as a paleo eater here! The workouts are short but intense, just 30 minutes, and utilize a lot of weight lifting to burn calories and build muscle. Because of this, you might not see as quick of a drop on the scale as the original but you might VISIBLY see more changes in your body or in the way your clothes fit. This program is especially awesome for busy people or people who don't love spending hours a day working out. If you are new to fitness, I suggest starting with the original 21 Day Fix and then "graduating" to this one. It will be a great back-to-back plan!
WHAT: The 21 Day Fix Extreme is second program put out by trainer Autumn Calabrese. It builds on the foundations he laid out in the original 21 Day Fix but takes it up to a new level of dedication. The colored container and full guide to the nutrition program is included along with the DVD's with all the workouts. It is available as just the program alone or in a Challenge Pack. The latter is what you need to join my monthly online Challenge Groups where you get free coaching, support, accountability, and help as you go through the program with a group of us together!

What is the Difference Between the 21 Day Fix and the 21 Day Fix Extreme?
Great question! Both programs are bootcamp-style with 30 minute workouts 7 days a week. Both programs come with the color coded containers, nutrition plan, and Shakeology shaker cup. Both programs are only 21 days long.
The differences are that the original program is appropriate for all fitness levels including beginners. The Extreme is more difficult for beginners and is really better for intermediate level and above. In the original program there is a mix of moves using weights and not using weights. In the extreme most workouts and moves are using weights or a resistance band. As far as the nutrition plan goes, in the original 21 Day Fix you are allowed some cheats like wine and options for eating out. In the 21 Day Fix Extreme, those options have been removed. You eat completely clean for 21 days! There is also an additional "Countdown to Competition" version of the meal plan which is basically paleo and removes sugars and carbs completely from your daily diet for even more dramatic results.
