UPDATE: Shift Shop Proving Grounds
Since I originally shared this blog there's been MORE added to the program. What?! Yes! Starting October 2018 you can test your limits and compete with Chris in the Shift Shop Proving Grounds.
What is the Shift Shop Proving Grounds?
Here's what you need to know... You'll start the program with a new Prep Week featuring 15-minute "Quick Shift" workouts to give you a sample of the exercises and eases you into the program. Then, you'll move onto two Proving Ground workouts that will help you score your starting performance!
Then, as you progress through the program you'll test yourself at the end of each week at the Proving Grounds. Put your abilities to the test with the goal of beating last week's performance!
Guys, I cannot express how excited I am about this program! Have you heard about Shift Shop?
I had the chance to meet Chris Downing, the creator of Shift Shop! This man has real-world experience in training sports teams and pro-athletes. Everything he put into this program comes as a result of what he’s seen proven to deliver the best results. Meeting Chris made me even more excited to do this workout!
What are Workouts Like?
Beachbody describes Shift Shop as a “3-week rapid rebuild.” (Check out the results below, can you believe most of them are from just 3 weeks?!) What Chris has created is a mix of cardio and strength training, with each week ramping up in length and intensity.
Week 1: Shorter 25-minute workouts 6-days a week to help you focus and get committed to the program.
Week 2: As your body begins to get use to the workouts, 10 minutes are added to each workout—35 minutes each!
Week 3: Just like the previous week, the length and intensity ramps up. Be ready for 45 minutes of high intensity fitness! It’ll be challenging, but week 1 and 2 will have prepared you for it!
Sundays are a rest day, but include an optional stretching program to help you recover.
What is the Shift Shop Meal Plan?
Have you ever used the Portion Fix containers by Beachbody, like the ones used in 21 Day Fix? Shift Shop uses these same color-coded measurement containers, but adds it’s own little twist. Each week, as your workouts change, your meal plan will also change.
Week 1 will feel similar to the meal plan you may have followed in other programs using Portion Fix containers, but with a more specific list of foods.
Week 2 will ask you to cut down on starchy carbs, revving up protein and veggies.
Week 3 takes it a step further and completely cuts out your yellow container (carbs), while increasing healthy fat and proteins with unlimited vegetables.
Shift Shop Results
Before Beachbody releases most new programs they reach out to a ton of Coaches to become part of an exclusive Test Group. Well, those Shift Shop Test Group results picture are rolling in, and let me tell you, they’re UNBELIEVABLE ! I remember being asked to be in the 21 day Fix Test Group and I literally made it my J.O.B. to get results and prove our products work. These Coaches did just that!
