What Is Beachbody?
First, a brief history lesson: Co-founders Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon started Beachbody in 1998 with big dreams and one mission: To help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy, fulfilling lives.
With a comprehensive approach that combines fitness, nutrition, and support, they created a complete solution for people who want to transform their lives, physically and mentally.
Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, or just learn more about nutrition and exercise, Beachbody has programs, products, and content to help you accomplish those goals.

The Beachbody Ecosystem
It’s important to remember that everything in the Beachbody ecosystem works together in a strategic, cohesive way.

You also get access to exclusive content like FIXATE, a cooking show featuring 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother, Bobby — Autumn and her chef brother show you how to make healthy meals.
All you need is an Internet connection and you can take all this great content wherever you go.
Here’s a sample of the variety of programs available:
Job 1 is a 20-minutes-a-day, 5-days-a-week training program that helps you prioritize your health and fitness habits.
You’ll hit multiple muscle groups every single day for a total-body sweat.
Jennifer knows the best jobs keep you challenged, so each strength workout features a different structure to help you make progress and build strength without adding bulk.
You’ll also have one day of endurance cardio and one day of HIIT to help build your stamina, improve your energy, and dial-in the fat burn.
Barre Blend is a low-impact, total-body workout program from our very own barre expert, professional dancer, and 3 Week Yoga Retreat co-creator Elise Joan.
Elise created the perfect fusion of ballet barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training, designed to help you burn fat and create a lean, toned physique.
The workouts are 30–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 60 days. Elise leads you through each workout in real-time, which makes you feel like you’re in a high-end barre studio with a super-supportive community.
We re-shot 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme and added bonus material: The first week is a fresh take on the original workouts to get you warmed up, and each week after that includes some new moves to keep you on your toes!
In Week 3 of 21 Day Fix, there’s an additional (optional) workout each day. You’ll also get a 10-minute bonus ab workout.
Each day of 21 Day Fix is a different type of half-hour workout featuring Autumn and some cast members from the original 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME series as well as new ones.
Super Trainer Amoila Cesar has trained pro athletes to get in the best shape of their lives.
With 645, you’ll be training 6 days per week, 45 minutes a day, doing functional resistance training, calorie-blasting cardio, and restorative mobility workouts that target your entire body and leave you feeling invigorated and energized — not defeated or spent.
Autumn designed this program as three phases that increase in intensity and exercise difficulty, 5 days a week, three weeks at a time.
9 Week Control Freak is five days of exercise per week: three DCT-T workouts (Density, Complexes, and Tabata Training), one day of Total Body Tone, and one day of Tabata Cardio and Core.
In just 18 to 30 minutes, you can trigger more muscle growth, incinerate more calories, and burn more fat than many people do in an hour at the gym.
Every morning, she’ll lead you through a 20- to 30-minute workout that can help you rev up your metabolism and burn fat all day.
There are 100 unique workouts in total, and each one is designed to help you transform your body.
The moves are based on classic lifting techniques that let you isolate, stabilize, and focus each rep on the muscle group you’re working.
There are no gimmicky moves, no overly complicated routines, and no opportunity for boredom because you’ll do all 32 workouts of the program in Joel and the cast, never doing the same workout twice.
Shaun T is back with a program that combines dance and fitness — it’s easy to follow and accessible to all dance and fitness levels.
With his unmatched energy and motivating style, Shaun guarantees this will be the greatest 30-35 minutes of your day.
LET’S GET UP! helps you live your best life. It’s a celebration of self-confidence, body positivity, inner strength, and joy that delivers a physical AND mental transformation.
You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, pre- and probiotics, fiber, adaptogens, vitamins, and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology.
Shakeology works to benefit your overall health, helping to support healthy energy and support digestive health.*
This powerful superfood nutrition shake can also help start to clean up your diet by curbing junk food cravings and satisfying hunger.*
On its own, Shakeology does not replace a meal, but it can be a part of a balanced meal when combined with other healthy foods like fruits, nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocados, or various milks.
Drink a morning shake with a healthy breakfast that has a mix of carbs, protein, and fat and you’ll be setting yourself up for success for the rest of the day.
(Note: We don’t recommend Shakeology for kids. But we got your back, parents: Check out the Daily Sunshine section further down…)
This nutrition program can help you lose weight — happily — without feeling deprived or hungry, without exercising, without counting calories, or cutting out whole food groups.
The 2B Mindset addresses the number one issue with weight loss and weight management — food.
Exercise is critical for living a healthy, functional life, but as they say, abs are made in the kitchen — and that’s the problem the 2B Mindset solves.
Portion Fix is not a diet. It’s a lifestyle; an approach to eating that makes sense.
There’s no counting calories, no deprivation, no starvation…and no food is off-limits! You just have to learn to eat them in the proper portions.
And, there’s a great confidence that comes knowing you will get the results you expect when you follow the program with Autumn Calabrese.
To help you make the most of your workouts, there’s the Beachbody Performance (BBP) supplement line.
Energize is available in Lemon, Fruit Punch, and Mixed Berry flavors.
Hydrate When you sweat, you lose more than just water, you also lose minerals called electrolytes. Hydrate replenishes your body by providing an ideal balance of electrolytes and sugars.*
Recover has phytonutrients shown to reduce inflammation caused by exercise. That means less soreness and faster muscle recovery so you can get back to working out again as soon as possible.*
Creatine helps delay fatigue, boost muscle growth, and accelerate recovery, both between sets and workouts.*
Beachbody BEVVY is our tea supplement line that supports healthy weight loss and helps curb cravings.*
BEVVY can help support you on your weight loss journey and help you stay focused on your long-term nutrition goals. It comes in a convenient powdered formula, not a teabag, so you can quickly and easily mix it in warm or cold water.
There’s also Focused Energy BEVVY — a delicious, 30-calorie, pomegranate berry-flavored supplement that can help increase energy, improve mental clarity and focus, and curb cravings with regular use.*
It’s made with plant-based ingredients from two of our most popular products: Focused Energy Boost and Beachbody BEVVY.
Our collagen supplement is a high-quality collagen peptide powder that’s been shown to help increase skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and support healthy nails.*
All you need is one small scoop a day and you’re on your way to gorgeous skin and nails in as little as 30 days!*
Some collagen powders recommend up to a 20-gram serving, but Collagen Boost helps deliver results in a 2.5-gram serving of premium collagen peptides.*
FIRST THING and LAST THING are two innovative supplements composed of key, clinically tested ingredients that work in harmony to help promote overall well-being.
Your day begins with FIRST THING, a nootropic health shot blending 17 key ingredients to help sharpen focus, defend against stress, support your immune system, and provide the mental clarity and vitality to rise above whatever is holding you back.*
Drift off to sleep with LAST THING, a blend of 9 premium ingredients that helps give your body what it needs to release the day, quiet your mind, and guide you into a deeper, more restorative sleep, so you can wake up refreshed and ready to face a new day.*
Beachbody has easy and effective ways to customize your shake to your specific health and lifestyle needs: Shakeology Boosts. There are three boosts to choose from and they each do something a little different for your body:
Focused Energy is an effective pick-me-up that contains ginseng and natural caffeine from guarana and green tea to support mental clarity, alertness, and focus.*
Power Greens contains veggies like cucumber, kale, and spinach to deliver a full serving of vegetables in each scoop.
Digestive Health is a powerful boost that helps support regularity with a unique blend of soluble and insoluble fiber.*
While Shakeology was created for adults, we’ve got your kids covered, too: Daily Sunshine is a healthy (and tasty!) shake formulated for kids and their unique dietary needs.
It can be a struggle to get kids to eat right, so our goal was to create a healthy and easy snack that you feel good about giving them. (Add water + shake it up = done.)
It comes in two kid-approved flavors — Chocolate and Strawberry Banana — and provides the building blocks of nutrition that kids need every day: an organic fruit and veggie blend, protein, and healthy fats.
Daily Sunshine is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and it contains NO artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
The BEACHBAR is a crunchy, chewy, and delicious snack bar that is a good source of protein and just 150 calories. BEACHBARs come in three flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Chocolate Almond Crunch, and Mint Chocolate Chip.
Both flavors are made with nut pieces and nut butters, protein crisps, and topped with a ribbon of chocolate. They are gluten-free, have zero grams trans fats, and contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
At 150 calories per bar, you get 10 grams of protein, four grams of fiber, and six grams of sugar. Our vegan flavor, Chocolate Almond Crunch, contains nine grams of pea protein, four grams of fiber, and six grams of sugar.
