    I just started the first day of phase 2 and it's really a great workout, so I wanted to give it 5 stars. I'm impressed at the strength gains.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Thought they should get another star

    I just wanted to add another star. I really loved Cardio and Booty in week two, and it's definitely picking up the pace. I also found out it's structured in three phases, so the first three weeks are intro and strength building for phase two, and phase two should add more advanced moves with plyometrics and weights, and phase three sounded like a more intense version of that. It sounded like she would include some moves I bet come from 21 Day Fix Extreme, and that was a fun workout.

    I would probably give this a five-star review, but I don't love everything about the company's culture.

    80 Day Obsession

    So far I'm pretty into 80 Day Obsession and lost 2-3 lbs since I started.

    How it works: The program works where you're essentially targeting the same muscles each day of the week, but Autumn changes up the workouts slightly each time, so it's nice not watching the same video every week. The moves you do each week will be pretty similar but in a different order and using more reps or heavier weight. So far I'm pretty okay with that because week one I was still learning all the moves (not used to bands, so wasn't the fastest changing them week one, but am better now). I am curious to see if in week three we'll do some more new moves but since a lot are new to me anyway, I'd be okay with increasing weights/rep a bit.

    About the Bands: The band you want is really going to depend on your size. The 12-inch bands, which seem to be the standard on Amazon, were not great for me (I think they use 9-inch). 12-inch bands on me might as well not even be there, so that felt like a waste. I just ordered some 10-inch bands that I hope will work better for these workouts (9's are really hard to find I guess, unless on the Beachbody site).

    So far it's kind of a love-hate with bands. I've never used them and they rip my hair out of my legs, but also I am targeting new muscles than I did in other workouts, so I'm interested in seeing it work (I've been able to kind of get the 12s to work, but it's requiring a frustrating amount of focus).

    Pace: Slower than typical Beachbody workouts but also a bit longer on some days. Total Body and Booty seem casual and week one was definitely introductory compared to week two. The Cardio days are more fast-paced as usual, but a lot of Autumn's other videos from 21 Day Fix might have been more my preferred pace, and I find myself thinking I might start skipping some of the days to just go back to 21 Day Fix moves.

    Video: No music in the classes might throw you off. I don't really mind it being gone, either play your own music or focus on the moves. Otherwise, the quality is great and I like how informal the classes occasionally feel; sometimes they all get in a circle with the camera POV in the middle of the circle, which seems unique as far as classes go and kind of makes it feel like you're there.

    Diet: I'll be honest and say I've never followed a single Beachbody workout exactly how they want, but you should get results following a basic healthy Mediterranean diet and doing this as well. If you don't already eat healthy you may want to look into it. You'll need to refuel like after any workout though, so I just drink a protein drink and have a clementine like immediately after the workout and then a light lunch a little later. I typically start the day with a dairy-free chia pudding. Pretty much just don't do this and continue eating pizza and eat the healthy food surrounding your workout window. Just google "is Shakeology a scam" (it's probably good for you, but for what it is, there are less expensive alternatives).

    Conclusion: I think it's a solid program, and being familiar with years of Beachbody workouts, I'm pretty good at ignoring some of their nonsense (they like you to primarily buy their overpriced branded stuff but you don't need to). Also, I think 21 Day Fix (I did four rounds and got ripped) might be the better of the workouts in terms of results, but not sold yet since week one was introductory and I'm definitely liking week two more so far.

    Give it a try and don't be afraid to use heavier weight if you can handle it. Also, watch a band workout to get a good idea of what you'll need; if you're a bit larger the 12-inch bands might be good, but I need like the 9 to 10-inch bands in order to actually feel the resistance.

    My absolute favorite!

    I was very nervous and apprehensive about starting this program. The time nutrition seemed a little scary, and I am terrible at finishing programs that are longer than 3 weeks! But one month in and I cannot wait to keep going. First of all, I need a program that is more weights-based than cardio, because I hate cardio. There is cardio in this program but it is more focused on weights and sculpting.

    Secondly, and my favorite part, these were filmed live in late 2017. Which means that they are doing exactly what you are doing and struggling with the same things you are struggling with. They do a weekly video of the cast talking about how their week is going, and it is just so refreshing to see so much honesty in a workout program. The same goes for Autumn. You see so much more of her personality during these workouts. Instead of walking around most of the time, she is like 95% down there doing exactly what you are doing. You also see her have to lighten her weights and struggle with her own issues. The laughing and personal feeling of this program is what makes me so excited to keep going!

    And last, the timed nutrition. I have actually been able to follow this nutrition plan more than any other. I guess I needed someone to tell me exactly what to eat and when to eat it. It does require meal prepping and planning, which is something I was terrible out. But the plan is forcing me to things I have never done before, and it makes me feel more confident in my ability to stick with this for another two months!

    P.S. As far as the "80" different workouts. Yes, through every phase the moves are the same, but the way the workout is structured is different every day (with the exception of Cardio). However, the cast is showing up every day that you so it feels different every time!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Beware

    You are told by the coaches that “there are 80 different workouts." So far, this is a lie. We finished the first week and when I went to preview the second week, each day has the same moves, you simply increase reps. I feel like I was misled by my coach. The timed nutrition is difficult to follow, unless you don’t work. I am very upset at how misleading this program is.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I love 80 Day Obsession! I find it very freeing to do this at home whenever I want. I have the complete opposite opinion on this compared to Miss Sarcasm. In fact, there are 80 different workout videos. You don't watch the same "tape" over and over. The point of having to do the same move is to make you stronger with higher weights. Learning different move every day would mean that you don't excel in this move and you don't progress.

      Also, I do not have a coach (except for Autumn on my screen.) In fact, there is no need for more coaching but there is one essential thing which is positivity.

      Well, I guess that's all. Have a good time everyone!

      Yeah, the timed nutrition can be difficult at times but it is not impossible. I am an RN in an inpatient surgical unit. I work 12-hour shifts 3-4 times a week, and I make it work. I love this program. Each video is different and the pattern which you follow changes, as well as the number of reps.

      The timed nutrition can be difficult. I work where I have to take the train every day. I have found that I can make it work. Yes, you have to plan but that's the point. We all make bad decisions when we didn't plan ahead. I'm out of the house 12 hours a day during the week and have two small children. It's doable if you plan.
