CORE DE FORCE: everything you NEED to know about Beachbody's newest program

Beachbody's newest fitness/nutrition program is about to launch and I can't wait to share all the details with you! I haven't been this excited about a new program in a long time!  In this blog post I'll share my own personal review of Core De Force, as well as details on the workouts, eating plan, pricing and more!  I'll also let you know how you can do the program along with me in my virtual fitness group for support, accountability and fun!  

What is Core De Force?  
Core De Force is a 30 day program created by Super Trainers Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews.  It’s the ultimate program that combines simple portion control nutrition along with mixed martial arts (MMA)-inspired workouts that will knock melt off the belly fat, help slash inches off your waist, and carve total-body definition.   

Core De Force is packed with the best of MMA-inspired training.  In 3-minute “rounds” you’ll get Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai knee-elbow combinations, bodyweight training, and cardio spikes—all designed to help you lose the belly and shred body fat.  Just hit it hard for 3 minutes at a time and before you know it, you’ll be done!

Best of all, Core De Force is suitable for all fitness levels!  Each Core De Force workout includes a modifier who demonstrates the moves at a lower intensity.  Whether you're already intermediate/advanced or a fitness newbie, you can expect to get KNOCKOUT RESULTS in just 30 days - no equipment required!   

Who is Core De Force For?  
As I mentioned above, this program is great for people of all fitness levels.  Beginners will enjoy the "breakdown" that comes with each workout.  This is essentially a short move-by-move demonstration to help you get familiar with the punches, kicks, and combinations. Also, every workout includes a modifier who demonstrates the moves at a lower intensity.  BONUS:  you can also follow the “Modifier Track” (exclusively on Beachbody On Demand) in split-screen view so you can keep your eyes on the modifier while you build strength and get up to speed!

Those with an intermediate or advanced base level of fitness will enjoy the challenge these high-intensity workouts offer. Not only will they help blast away the fat and carve total body definition, but they’ll also help improve your cardiovascular endurance, speed, and strength. 

Core De Force is a great option for those who fall into 1 or more of the following categories:  
  • Want to lose belly fat and tighten up the midsection
  • Like kickboxing and/or MMA workouts
  • Want to see results fast
  • Need an affordable and effective program
  • Don't have time to get to the gym
  • Like high-energy workouts

What is the Eating Plan Like?  
This Eating Plan keeps things simple with grocery lists and recipes so figuring out what to eat is never a battle.  There is no counting calories with Core De Force.  Everything is based off of portion control so you can easily measure out the right amount of food that will fuel your body with the energy it needs.  
The eating plan is based off the same container system as the Portion Fix (21 Day Fix) but the nutrition strategy lets you eat more to help fire up your metabolism.  If you haven't used the Portion Fix eating system I can tell you that it's simple, effective and makes eating feel like less of a chore than counting calories.  I can't stress thus enough:  you need to master your nutrition or you will not see great results.  As your coach it's my goal to help you succeed so I will have plenty of sample meal plans and recipes to provide you with, so it will simplify things even more!

It's highly recommended that you use Shakeology to replace one meal per day.  Shakeology is a whole-food meal replacement that is a nutritional powerhouse.  One serving of Shakeology packs the nutritional equivalent of 5 servings of salad!  There are too many health benefits of Shakeology to get into, so let me simplify why I feel so strongly about: drink Shakeology if you want a meal that is convenient, tastes like dessert, and expedite your results.  If you want more information about Shakeology contact me here.   

What Workouts are Included and How Long Are They?  
The Workouts in Core De Force range from 27 - 47 minutes.  In the Core De Force Base Kit and Challenge Pack you'll get the following workouts:  
  • 4 MMA-inspired workouts, each with a step-by-step breakdown of all the moves 
  • 2 bodyweight resistance workouts

  • Core Kinetic
PLUS this FREE BONUS WORKOUT when you order from me:  MMA Mashup.  This workout combines all the best moves in one killer workout! From Boxing and Muay Thai combos to resistance and plyo burners, this challenging workout will leave you drenched—and wanting more! 
If you are looking to take you fitness to the next level you might consider adding on the deluxe upgrade: 
  • Agility Strength: Combine fast footwork drills with bodyweight resistance to help improve coordination and blast major calories.

Join My Virtual Fitness Group!
I take my job as a Beachbody Coach seriously and one of the best ways that I help my customers and coaches get results is with my Challenge Groups.  Challenge Groups are virtual fitness and nutrition accountability groups where I provide support and motivation to help keep you engaged.  As my customer you'll get some additional free bonuses such as ebooks, a Getting Started Right phone consultation,  and unlimited access to my own challenger education.  I don't want you buy a program from me just so it collects dust.  I want you to become the next success story and I will do all that I can to support you and keep you accountable.   

I'll be starting Core De Force on November 14 and I'd love for you to do it with me.  

Yes I know the holiday season is falling right smack dab in the middle of this but let me tell you that is not an excuse!  In fact, it's the biggest reason you should SAY YES!  There is never a perfect time to start.  The longer you wait to begin your fitness journey, the longer it will take and the harder it will be to get results.  How cool would it be for you to be down 5, 10+ pounds for the new year instead of having all that additional weight to get rid of?  

Together we will punch, kick and jump our way through the holidays as we fight for our goals!  

Are you ready to do this?  
Make sure you RSVP to my Core De Force event on Facebook where I will be sharing TONS of information about this program!

Healthy Slow Cooker Baked Apples

The cool weather of fall always makes me crave the warm, comforting sweet desserts like apple pie and apple crisp.  But, I have a few issues with these desserts like A) takes a lot of time and effort to make, B) they are high in fat and carbs, C) I end up eating WAY too much.  

A much easier and healthier alternative is to make baked apples.  This fuss-free slow cooker recipe gives you the same delicious flavor but it’s much healthier and is portioned into single servings.  It’s a low sugar, low fat, 21 DAY FIX APPROVED option that’s just sweet enough to satisfy your apple pie cravings.

Healthy Sweet Potato Puffs

These delicious little puffs (aka muffins) are simple to make and make a great recipe to add in to your weekly food prep.  I was looking to make something that would use up the sweet potatoes and broccoli that we had in the house, AND I was also on a mission to make something that my 3.5 year old would actually eat.  He does love sweet potatoes and broccoli, so combining them into these cute little puffs seemed like a good solution.  They were a hit - not only with him but for my husband and I as well.

This recipe made A LOT.  I initially made these for my son but there were so many leftover that the whole family was eating them through the week.  They held up well in the fridge for at least 4-5 days until they were gone.  If you don't like having food stay in the fridge for that long, or if you can't eat them all within that time frame, I suggest freezing some of the leftovers.


  • Approximately 2 cups of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes 
    • I baked the sweet potatoes but you may steam if preferred.  I used a total of 7 sweet potatoes of various sizes from small - medium.
  • 1 cup of steamed, chopped broccoli florets
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 3 tablespoons non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of Bragg's nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  Scoop mixture into mini muffin tins (I use parchment mini-muffin liners, if you don't use liners make sure you grease the pan).  Like I said, this makes a lot.  I filled the mini muffin tins and still had enough to make 8 regular muffin sized puffs. 
  3. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.  I left the regular sized muffins in for a total of 40 minutes.  
  4. Enjoy plain, or try with sour cream or ketchup!
