Transform :20 Program Details
Well, if you were actually reading above you know the workouts are 20 minutes. 20 minutes. Not 21, not 24, 20. When Shaun T says “let’s go,” you better be ready to MOVE. HA!
There are 3 Phases to the program:
Each phase gets harder. The moves more intricate. And the motivation, more impactful.
Each workout has a different name:
Burn though Cut (aka the Monday through Friday workouts) are intense.
You’ll be doing lots of fast feet movements up and down the step (think Speed 1.0/2.0 from T25 with a step), to lots of pushups, lots of burpees, and lots of abs.
To be honest, Week 1 was super rough for me! Not only because the step makes it even harder, I just wasn’t used to the non-stop, go go go, cardio anymore. That first workout will test your will to continue my friends — just keep going. You will get stronger.
Balance incorporates stretching, lighter cardio, and strength work.
It’s the perfect ending to the week. As of writing this blog, I am on Week 5, and my mindset has undergone a complete shift. I look forward to my workouts and I am loving it!
Each workout has 3 “Transformers.”
A Transformer is a move timed for a minute where you have to push yourself to complete as many reps as possible. You track these in the Transformation Trackers. They really do measure your improvements week-to-week.
My suggestion for the Transformers — if you are like me and have a hard time counting and moving fast (not puking), to record yourself doing the transformers so you can go back and count your reps following your workout.
And as of Week 6, I’ve lost 6 pounds!
Have I had some cocktails — YES. On those days where I indulge in a glass of wine, I follow (strictly) 2B Mindset. Lots of water, lots of veggies!
The Transformation Trackers
When you can track it, you can improve it, right?! Well, Shaun T uses that concept and provides us with a daily tracker that not only tracks your Transformers, but your food, and your mood. Because let’s face it, that is bound to change over the course of 6 weeks. HA!
I highly encourage you – TRACK TRACK TRACK!
Really sticking to the tracking process allows you to see your improvements over time and to gauge your level of commitment. It was really a stretch for me to do it, but I am glad I did. I have seen my numbers improve, and well, my mindset strengthen.
My Transform :20 Experience (Weeks 1–5)
At this point, you should know I will never lie to you about my reviews of our programs, so, here’s the honest truth.
That picture above? Yep, that’s how I was feeling the entire workout!
I absolutely, positively, with 100% conviction — HATED Day 1.
Hand to heart, 10 minutes into the workout I pondered shipping my step back to Beachbody and saying “thanks, but no thanks!” But at the end of Week 1, I understood what this program was about.
It’s about a transformation from the inside out.
And while at that moment, I didn’t yet realize how the program would impact me personally, I knew that my quitting would prevent others from experiencing massive and transformative personal breakthroughs. It was about more than the tough and fast moves, it was about the words, the positive affirmations, the positivity, the growth. I could see where Shaun T was going with this. He was going to push us to our breakthrough point. Ahhhh, got it!
Part of my apprehension on Day 1 was also due to the fact that I thought I was in much better shape. Remember the “fittest year of my life” thing. Yeaaaaa, not so much. This would require a different kind of fit. So, feeling slow and winded was a humbling experience and one that I would need to get used to as I pushed and got stronger every day. Day by day, I would get faster and stronger. Faster and stronger. That would be my goal.
But Day 2 was better and by Day 3 I was getting the hang of it.
And it was in Day 2 that I realized I had missed the whole “Transformer” thing in Day 1. Likely, because I was busy planning my exit from this group. HA!
By the end of Week 1, I had already lost 5 pounds and I was feeling fantastic. Who knew you could get results to fast with only 20 minutes a day! Drops the mic. This is going to rock people’s world!
Alright let’s all calm down — on Week 2 we headed to Las Vegas and I had Amazon ship me a step to our hotel. I know, I am extra AF. The first test of will-power was upon me. Was it easy? HELLLLLL NO! I had to workout while people were hanging at the bar. Not fun at all. But I made a commitment and so I pushed through.
Week 3 (the Climb phase) was my personal breakthrough week. It’s when I finally felt myself coming alive in this program. I was now looking forward to each workout, to the message, to the Transformers. Instead of having negative thoughts for 20 minutes, I found myself being my biggest cheerleader. Pushing myself to new heights. Week 4 I absolutely found myself in the ZONE.
And here I am, in Week 5 (the Conquer phase) being pushed even harder and staring down the barrel of finishing this amazing experience.
I am going to end here and circle back when I can show you my results and my overall complete experience and results. Hopefully, by reading this, you have felt inspired to embrace a new and different journey like I have.
Trust and believe — it will be worth every minute.
