It’s time to get OBSESSED!!
What’s cool about this program is there are actually 80 separate workouts. You actually get to see the program in real-time, and watch the bodies of the cast change as the workouts progress — including Autumn’s. It’s set to be released on January 15th, 2018 as a series of LIVE workouts on Beachbody on Demand.
The 80 Day Obsession WorkoutsWhat’s completely new and unique about this program is that it is filmed in REAL TIME. Meaning you get 80 workouts, day-by-day, and follow along with the cast as they transform their own bodies. Workouts are great for weight loss while toning your core and shaping your booty. The workouts are intense… but they’re SUPPOSED to be. They’re for anyone committed to seeing REAL CHANGE in 80 days. Unlike the 21 Day Fix, the workouts are longer. They range from about 45 minutes to an hour in length…. all designed to get you in the BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE. Who doesn’t want that? You’ll get a total body workout, but some days focus entirely on your butt, your legs, upper body. Cardio is also part of the mix- to maximize fat burn.
Workouts for the week will be released on Saturday nights, great for those early-morning exercisers ready to hit it hard Sunday morning. Once the workouts are released, they will stay up on Beachbody on Demand permanently. 80 Day Obsession follows a 13-week format, with six workouts each week and a rest day. So, the entire series of 80 workouts is spread out over 91 days.
What is Beachbody on Demand? Beachbody on Demand is an online streaming service for Beachbody workouts. Think of it like the Netflix of Fitness. You will need BOD for 80 Day Obsession, as the workout program will not be released on DVD. In addition to streaming workouts, BOD gives you access to the nutrition program for all the programs, the Fixate cooking show and other great resources and workout exclusives like:
Who is a Good Fit for 80 Day Obsession?This program is for those who already have at least an entry-level base of fitness. If you’ve not yet gone through the 21 Day Fix program, I’d recommend doing that first. If you are gearing up to 80 Day Obsession, I’d recommend doing at least one round of 21 Day Fix followed by 21 Day Fix Extreme. However, if you’re in a time crunch one round should be sufficient to get you familiar with Autumn’s style, the container system and clean eating, while building that minimum level of fitness required to do 80 Day Obsession. It’s great for you IF:
80 Day Obsession Menu Plan
With 80 Day Obsession, the Portion Fix System containers are used, but this program utilizes a timed macronutrient program. It tells you what to eat WHEN – taking the guesswork out. Like the 21 Day Fix, you’ll do a quick calorie calculation to find out which bracket you fall into. However, with 80 Day Obsession you’ll be eating the proper macronutrients to fuel your body what it needs at just the right time. You’ll get a pre-workout and post-workout meal. For example, for breakfast your bracket may say you need one green, one red and one blue. This truly will maximize getting the right nutrients into your system to optimize performance and muscle growth and recovery. BONUS – you also get a “refeed” day. That’s when the nutrition plan gets a bump up starchy carbs, fruits… all to add to those glycogen stores. You’ll do it on a leg day, and the first one happens at 6 weeks. Then, “refeed” days happen every few weeks after that.
80 Day Obsession SupplementsTo boost your workout performance, Autumn recommends using Beachbody Performance Energize 15-30 minutes before your workout. Because your muscles will be sore, it’s recommended that you use Beachbody Performance Recover after your workout as well as Beachbody Performance Recharge at night 30 minutes before you go to bed to speed muscle recovery. If you want to try them, they come in a Beachbody Performance Sampler pack.
About 80 Day Obsession From Autumn Calabrese:
How did the idea of 80 Day Obsession come about?
The Beachbody CEO, Carl Dialer has a whiteboard FULL of workout program ideas. One of them was an “Ass and Abs” program. He approached Autumn Calabrese about the idea of that and Country Heat about the same time. However, the technology wasn’t there to do a real-time workout yet on the platform, so Country Heat came first.
What is timed nutrition?
Timed nutrition has nothing to do with intermittent fasting, contrary to what some of you might think. It’s basically Autumn just answering some of the questions she’s received over the years on the best containers to eat at what times of the day. For example, what should you eat before your workout. The best things to eat AFTER. When should I be done with my yellows? All timed nutrition meals is that Autumn is suggesting the best macronutrients to eat when. You still get to decide what goes into your containers and when.
What about the pre-workout meal? It’s supposed to be eating an hour and a half to two hours before I work out. What if I’m an early-riser and need to work out right away?
The tough love answer is that you should still eat before you work out – it’s called OBSESSION for a reason. However, you can sub out Meal One for your pre-workout meal and do it 20 minutes before your workout instead of an hour and a half or two. If you still can’t adhere to that, you simply start your timed nutrition after you’re done with your workout.
What does the name OBSESSION mean?
80 Day Obsession is all about COMMITTING to YOURSELF. The word obsession has nothing to do with obsessing about the number on the scale, it has nothing to do with obsessing over how you look, or obsessing over calories. It’s about having a certain level of obsession over yourself and your self-care… and being OK with that. That’s what being obsessed is about.The focus of 80 Day Obsession is 3-fold.
1. Build the glutes. Yes, we all want a great looking back side but its just as important to have a strong butt. That’s right, glutes are a big muscle that do a lot of work. We spend a lot of our day sitting on our butts, we need to get those muscles firing and functioning properly.
2. Reduce total body fat, especially in the stubborn belly area
3. Emphasize the right kind of core work to get flat but defined abdominals. It’s no secret that I’ve wanted to build my butt and I’ve been working on it for awhile now. This program proves that with the right combination of exercises and timed nutrition – shaped, firm glutes that look good and function even better doesn’t have to be restricted to the genetically gifted. The booty is made of muscle and just like any other muscle in the body, it can be built and sculpted.
The focus of 80 Day Obsession is exciting, but what I’m even more excited about is the way I get to deliver it to you over the course of 13 weeks. This isn’t 7 workouts on repeat. Every workout is unique in some way so I keep your body (and your mind) guessing and you never get bored. It’s how I would train you if you were a personal client meeting me in the gym every day.
I’m confident you guys are going to love this macro-nutrition program because it takes all the guess work out. I literally tell you exactly how to eat AND when to eat and we use the familiar container system from 21 Day Fix to make sure you’re getting the right portion and combination of each food group when your body needs it most.
While abs and booty may be a primary vanity objective, this program is designed for your body to function optimally, to be lean, but shockingly strong. Yes, a great looking body is nice, but a great looking body that works well, moves well and feels great is truly a gift!
One last thing… I went with the word “obsession” because to achieve the kind of results this program delivers in just under three months takes a specific type of focus. You could say we’re becoming obsessed with the process, obsessed with the details that help move us forward, obsessed with self-care and obsessed with making physical, mental and even nutritional gains
Equipment Needed for 80 Day Obsession
For 80 Day Obsession, you’ll need weights, resistance loops and sliders. Most of you have free weights already. The resistance loops will be available on TeamBeachbody.com in December 14th so you can get them before the program launches.
It was JUST ANNOUNCED last week that ALL COACHES on our team will have the opportunity to participate in a special COACH-ONLY test group with Autumn Calabrese herself. The group will take place on Facebook in a closed group. If you plan on doing the 80 Day Obsession program in January, you can use this opportunity to enroll as a coach and have your initial enrollment fee WAIVED. Plus, this also gets you into the EXCLUSIVE COACH TEST GROUP! Message me and I will get you all the details or comment below.
FYI: There are no obligations to “work” as a coach at all. You can simply enroll as a coach in name only to receive the coach discount and entry to the Group. I would love to talk to you about this if you have questions...feel free to connect with me on facebook or comment below.
What comes to mind when you think of a 'small business?' Maybe images of the local mom and pop shop or a restaurant that is unique to your community? Perhaps you think about hardworking men and women who had the guts to start a business from scratch in spite of the pressure and competition of the larger box stores. You might not want to admit it but even those moms on facebook doing the MLM route... those are their businesses. They count, too 😘Many of us like to support local small businesses so here's somethings for you to consider.
How about me?
I started my BeachBody journey 2 1/2 years ago so I could get healthy and make enough money to cover the cost of my monthly Shakeology order. After a while, that became a reality and I fell in LOVE with the community around me and all of those people who began their own journeys.
I am a small business...
Actually, it doesn't get much smaller than me and the size of my staff (ME) definitely does not equal the output of my effort. I am the definition of a small business. I provide a valuable service and in addition to all the hours I put into my business during the week, I am also on-call 24/7 for my coaches and team. I contribute to the local economy and do my best to help those who work with me earn as much as they can. An investment in me is really an investment into the lives of many others. When I first started this business I'm not sure I would have been bold enough to write this, but I am proud of what I do and the implications it has for others.
Who is ready to do something GOOD for yourself? Something that will affect every part of your life to make it more enjoyable? That's what happens when you choose to take control of your health - everyone and everything in your life benefits from it. Fill your cup first, so you can pour into others! This is real. This works and can help you.
I dont know if you are like me, but I did a lot of research and "watching" before deciding to do this. Not only do I have a great deal for anyone that wants to jump in and get started with me this weekend, you get a gift with purchase to sweeten the deal!!!
What a great way to end 2017 strong and get started right in 2018! Maybe you overheard your S.O wanting to do something like this. Maybe a loved one, family member or friend needs this. Whatever it is, I hope you think of me. I love what I'm doing and I want to grow this business as big as I can because I feel like I have so much to offer. I want to thank all of you for your support of me and my business. Thank you for trusting me, believing in me and walking along side me in this journey. I know you have heard it before and I hope you believe when people say it is a HUGE deal when you are supporting your friends and small businesses.
I know the Lamm's are super grateful.
Enjoy your Saturday.

I've been keeping a little secret and can finally spill it.
So, if you have been reading my blog..you know i have been on the STRUGGLE BUS all year. And that the last 4 months have been the worst of it. Well, I can now share I am 1 of the 55 coaches selected to participate in the official coach test program for the 2B Mindset program that will be launching next year!
It was pretty amazing to me that after i have shared my struggles that this opportunity came to me.
We’re working with a small group of coaches alongside the creator (Ilana Muhlstein, R.D.N.) of this incredible nutritional program for the next 2 month before it officially launches in 2018!
Yesterday we had our first meeting/training and I can tell you that this program is seriously going to change my life. It’s EXACTLY what I have been missing in regards to my nutrition, and ESPECIALLY my mindset and I’m so so so excited for the impact it’s going to have on so many people.
Last month at the leadership conference it was announced that a nutritionist & dietician had partnered with Beachbody to create a program that would change the lives of everyone who did it. And it includes ZERO workouts. It’s called the 2B Mindset. I remember watching this video and just crying because i have struggled my whole life with food. I love working out...that isnt really my issue. It my relationship with food. And this program is focused on that! I even struggle with the 21 day fix containers...and i know they work. I have experienced that they work..and still i struggle.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL - because as of TODAY, Its the official day 1 of this test group for the 2B Mindset.
I am one of about 50 coaches total who has the chance to work 1:1 with @ilanamuhlsteinrd.
I’m excited to do something different - to change my mindset about food and nutrition and to hopefully soon help YOU do the same ❤️
While I can’t spill the beans about the program in its entirety, I will say - this is gonna be a life changer!!
Anyone that knows me at all, knows that this has been one of the hardest years of my life. There have been some days that my goal for myself is to just function. As a coach, this is not what i am supposed to do... let alone actually tell anyone that this is where i am at. And there have been many days over this year that i have felt like a fraud. But one thing i am...is honest and I try to be transparent. So, on that note...here we go.
Im writing this today for anyone who's ever GAINED weight during an extremely difficult time in their life. It might feel like you are alone, but you need to know, You are NOT alone!
Last fall, I experienced the most heartbreaking situation. I couldn't shut down because i am a mom and a coach, but from November - March, I was in survival mode. Somedays all I could do was get out of bed, get dressed and take care of my kids. Of course, the first thing out the window was the good habits of taking care of myself. But, I couldn't let go completely because...I am a coach. I packed on 10lbs due to the very confusing and dark time I was going through. I couldn't get myself to work out or eat well. And everyday, i would get up and think, "I need to get back in the game!" but, I just felt like such a failure, I couldn't get my act together. And the thing that hurt the most was that I KNEW what i needed to do. I KNEW the food to eat, i KNEW the plans to follow by heart. I just felt so weak. It's CRAZY what EMOTIONAL STRESS can do to the body.
It has been 11 months and today when i weighed, i was exactly 15lbs heavier than i was last year at this time.
And I have had enough.
I feel gross.
I feel weak.
I am emotionally and physically tired.
I got off that scale and had that feeling I had when I originally started this journey 2 years ago! I HAVE to start taking care of myself. I am a better person when I am taking care of myself. And I KNOW THIS! Even though life is sometimes out of control...my health is something I can control. And when life happens, we cant let it derail us. And i feel like that is what has happened to me. Don't get me wrong, the past 11 months haven't all been bad. I still get up every day and try, but not the way someone who is SERIOUS about changing there lifestyle does. I have had some good days sprinkled in there, but not many. On a positive note, I am grateful. I am grateful that even though i haven't had any movement really this past year...I didn't fully give up. And i totally would have before Beachbody. I would have given up completely..on everything.
Thankfully, I am daily weathering this life storm, and today I'm in a much better place. I tell my challengers all the time that the only way we fail is if we QUIT. And that has been getting me through every day this last year. Most days i have messed up or failed in some aspect, but I wont give up... And again, today is my Day 1.
As personal and scary as this was to share, I hope it helps ONE person know that there is grace and hope. You can make it through, you'll be OK. Just don't ever forget to take care of yourself! I am so grateful that I was not alone this year. That even though i felt like i was failing..DAILY...i still tried. I still showed up.
So, if you are ready to walk this journey with someone that knows GRACE and persistence...come with me. Im looking for women who want join me in completely transforming their bodies. Its not always easy, but it is so much better when we are doing it together. My next group starts November 5th and I am ready to go. We have 8 weeks left of this year and ALOT can happen in 8 weeks. (Aren't you interested to see what you can do in 8 weeks??? I am ❤️ )
There ya have it. Yep, I am a coach...a coach that isn't perfect. But a coach that will never give up...on myself or you.
First of all, I apologize that I have not been very active on here. It is definitely not from a lack of words in my head...its just that I am not very good at getting them out. I have had few cool things happen in the last few weeks..and so, I will do better at sharing them.
Today is the first that I am still pinching myself about <3
Today is a $17,742.00 milestone.
I gathered my family and we sat around the computer as i pushed submit. We did it all together because it is something we all have had a part in. We just paid off the last remnants of a $17,000+ credit card debt. Hitting that submit button, we have erased a substantial amount of emotional stress and financial weight. In that moment, we lifted a burden from our family that has hung around for years, reminding us that life has a way of sneaking up on you even when you are an excellent planner. In that click of a button, thanks MOSTLY to the work I do with BeachBody, the results of my labor speak loud and clear :-)
When Curt went back to college, we started getting into debt. It was out of control and we were only able to ever pay the minimum owed. Trying to live on a teacher salary and retail job just doesn't cut it. I am a fairly frugal person and my family lives within its means so it was frustrating when we would make a little progress but then have an unexpected emergency (thanks, life!) occur and before we knew it, we would owe more. $17,000.00 is not a small amount of change and it added stress and pressure and it always felt like it was hanging over our heads while never dwindling enough to inspire any real amount of hope. We were always just treading water.
So, when I heard about beachbody and that you could get healthy and earn an income, I had a hard time believing it. One of those "to good to be true" type of things. (Im sure some of you have thought the same thing, believe me, I get it.) It's been 26 months since I started making payments on our debt with my beachbody earnings. Some months I was able to pay off more than others but the one consistent factor in all of this is that I was able to pay more than the MINIMUM every single month.
Listen. I'm not writing this to try and sound like some infomercial or to just "sell a product." And i am not saying I only used my earnings to pay this credit card off. We don't have a summer home on the lake or a boat and we don't vacation in Europe for months at a time. My newest car is 10 years old! ;-) I am saying that for this family, who couldn't afford more than the minimum payments on our cards...to have paid that off in 26 months...thats amazing! Paying off this debt because of the hard work and energy I put into my business is something I want to tell everyone!
Because this is real life.
Not some story I heard from my cousin's barber's boyfriend's accountant. This is my story and it's real. We were in debt and now because I took that leap of faith and worked hard for 2 years, that debt is gone. That credit card debt that was drowning me...is gone. This really works and I hope it can encourage anyone who is on the fence about whether this is worth the time, dedication, and effort. This company can change your life...inside, outside, your families lives. I want that for you!
This is my story and it's just beginning. Next stop...STUDENT LOANS! Woo hoo!!!
Just a reminder that *Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Each Coach's income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill.
