Introducing the Master's Hammer and Chisel!

Exclusive test group!

I don't know about you, but I am FREAKING EXCITED about the release of Beachbody's newest program, The Master's Hammer and Chisel, on Dec 1st, 2015!!! Unless you've been living under a rock for the last year you've probably heard of a little program called the 21 Day Fix that has been completely changing people's lives (seriously, just google before and after's!) The creator of this program, Autumn Calabrese has teamed up with Body Beast creator, Sagi Kalev, to bring you an innovative resistance-training program to help you sculpt your body! 

Both of these trainers are well known for getting everyday people like you and I amazing results, right from the comfort of your own home.
Mrs. Virginia Master's Hammer and Chisel Results

Autumn and Sagi bring their experience as a professional bikini competitor and body builder to help you chip away fat and carve every muscle for a strong and visually stunning body in 60 days! (Ahhhh...who doesn't want that right?).  Having had the chance to complete 2 sneak preview workouts through Beachbody On Demand I can confidently say this program is going to be INCREDIBLE! 

I'm all about the details though. Tell me what I get and how it works! If you're like me, keep reading, and find out what you need to do to get your copy and join my exclusive Master's Hammer and Chisel test group starting on December 14th!





How does the program work?

  • The Workouts: This program is based on 3 phases of muscle sculpting -known as SSP Training (Stabilization, Strength and Power)- to help you rapidly build, chisel and refine your body in 60 days. The workouts are 30-40 minutes long, and I don't know about you, but as someone who works full time, does additional contractor work AND is a Beachbody Coach, those workouts fit pretty darn well in with my busy schedule! I have to get it done and get on out the door!
  • The Nutrition: Nutrition is the biggest determining factor in the success you see when you're working out and trying to see results. Yeah working out is important, but if you stuff your face with a burger king each night, no, you're not going to see abs! To maximize your results and help you see the fruits of your labor, this program comes with a straightforward portion-control nutrition plan, including portion control containers, that you can customize to meet your goals. So if you're looking to lean out, sculpt and maintain what you've got or build muscle, there are options for you.


What does the program include?

The Base Kit includes:
  • 60 day money back guarantee
  • 12 workouts on 6 DVD's- A comprehensive program from seasoned trainers and award-winning fitness competitors, Sagi Kalev and Autumn Calabrese 
  • 7 Portion control containers and a Shakeology shaker cup
  • The Master's Hammer & Chisel Program and Nutrition Guide- straightfoward, easy to follow and also includes recipe ideas and expert tips from Autumn and Sagi!
  • Quick start guide which lays out your blueprint for building the body you want
  • 60 Day Calendar
  • 2 FREE Bonus workouts! - 10 Minute Ab Hammer and 10 Minute Ab Chisel
  • Exclusive additional FREE workout - when you order through your team beachbody coach you also get the Master's Cardio! Short, but intense, this workout boosts aerobic capacity, power and muscular endurance- without impacting your lean-muscle gains.
  • 24/7 online support
The Deluxe kit includes:
  • Everything in the Base Kit
  • 4 additional bonus workouts
  • Extra set of portion control containers
  • 8lb medicine ball

Who is this program for?

First, let me clear this up. Weight lifting is for both Men AND Women! This program is for both Men AND Women! Now that we have that sorted.....

Ultimately this program is designed for someone who has a little experience with lifting weights such as graduates of the 21 day fix program, 21 day fix extreme, body beast, or P90X. If you've done a Beachbody workout program that requires weights in some way, shape or form, you'll be good. If you are comfortable with weights and have used them elsewhere, you'll be fine. However for those of you who need a little extra help, there is a modifier who demonstrates the moves at a lower intensity to help you out as you learn and get comfortable. There are also options to adapt certain exercises if you have limited equipment.





What equipment do I need?

  • Dumbbells- whatever a comfortable range is for you. For me right now that's between 5-25lb. For Men you'll need higher.
  • An exercise bench or stability ball (my personal preference is a bench but a stability ball is cheaper and perfectly fine to use, especially if you're on a budget and don't have this stuff already)
  • A pull up bar OR resistance bands with a door attachment 









Optional additional items

These items are not required to be able to do this program and see great results, but some may enhance your workout experience and take you're results to the next level! So, while not required, definitely recommended!
  • Workout mat
  • Towel
  • Workout gloves (weight lifting gloves or personally I use some yoga gloves from target because I get sweaty palms when I'm lifting!)
  • Team Beachbody Club Membership- allows you on demand streaming of the workouts from any mobile device and an internet connection (great for traveling)
  • Team Beachbody Performance Line- Maximize your results by adding the performance line to your program to support your energy, muscle-building and recovery. Instructions for incorporating these products into your nutrition regime are included in the Master's Hammer and Chisel Nutrition Guide
    • Energize (Pre-workout energy)
    • Hydrate (During workout hydration)
    • Recover (Post workout muscle recovery)
    • Recharge (Nighttime muscle recovery drink)
    • Creatine (Boost muscle strength and power, improve high intensity performance and enhance effects of resistance training)
    • Beachbody Performance Stack (includes ALL of these items together discounted)
