Beachbody REVIEW: 21 Day Fix Pilates Fix Extreme Workout Featuring Autumn Calabrese


If you have tried the original 21 Day Fix and loved it like I did, and are ready for the next level - 21 Day Fix Extreme is your answer. Same awesome format, same awesome instructor, just bumped up a level. The workouts are short -still around 30 minutes each, but they're extreme. The eating plan is simple, and the program comes complete with color coded food storage containers, nutrition guide, recipes, fitness info & more. This is the EXACT program that Autumn herself uses to get ready for a competition or photo shoot.

Autumn Calabrese, 2015

This is a 33 minute total body pilates routine. Autumn works out in a gym set with a group of background exercisers, one providing some easier modifications. You will need exercise tubing for all the exercises in this workout. Each exercise is performed for one minute each.


After a warm up, exercises include: supine band scissors, roll backs, the hundred holding the band, circle teaser, single leg extension & knee pull, crunches, v drops, v hold & side tap outs, v press outs, side lying leg raises, bird dogs, fire hydrant, donkey series, superman, swan, camel with front raise, and a cool down. 


I rate this a high intermediate routine. This is a core heavy routine that also hits the lower body. I love the use of the band to really up the intensity of the workout. Autumn provides great cuing and motivation. I received this DVD to review.

Fe Fit Week Two

Hilary Chung, 2015
The Fe Fit Week Two workouts are on disc two along with the Week Three workouts. Week 2 contains 3 workouts at about 30 minutes each. Hilary leads all of these routines in a cute barre studio with 3 backgrounders, one who shows some modifications. You will need light weights, a pilates ring (or small ball), & exercise tubing for some of the routines. Each of these routines contains a warm up and a cool down. 
Week Two Cardio Circuit: Exercises include burpees, elevator plank, crunches, hi knee run, plank hand taps, Mt climber, bike, standing knee pull, plyo plie, tri dips, V knee pulls, butt kicks, criss cross jacks, squat & abduct, double crunches, wide to narrow push ups, dip & kick, circle crunches, calf pedals, squat jacks, and a plank hold. This is a core cardio routine with some light toning mixed in.

Pilates ring work includes inner thigh squeeze adding crunches, upper body ring chest squeeze with crunches & roll ups, V twists with ring chest squeezes, supine leg drops & inner thigh squeeze. Band work includes: shoulder circles, rows, and abductions.

I rate these workouts solid intermediates, some have some high intermediate exercises mixed in. Hillary wastes no time but these routines are not rushed. I like Hillary as a lead; she provides great motivation and form pointers. Lots of unique exercises and combos. Love that they include standing & floor work. Great variety on the DVD and I cant wait to jump into week 2. I received this DVD to review.
