Core de force review (update may 2018) 14 things you need to know gas in oil pan


The glossy cover(s) that show a man and a woman striking combative action poses on the front seems to indicate that this is a product geared toward those who seek action and who are also not afraid to “fight” for the body types displayed by the couple on the cover. This would be a customer’s probable first impression when he or she first lays eyes on Beachbody’s Core De Force Base Kit DVD workout program. The kit is presented as a complete program which offers a set of mixed martial arts (MMA) based workouts, an eating plan, and a workout calendar.

Even some of the descriptions of the package indicate the martial arts theme that is being projected. When you reach the shopping page for the kit on Amazon, it describes the Core De Force program as “your 30-day countdown to a knockout body.” It’s the ultimate mixed martial arts-inspired workout that will knock out the belly fat, help slash inches off your waist, and carve total-body definition—no equipment required.” This last part is an essential point in an attempt to differentiate the program from other total body workout programs that exist on the market.

Core De Force is still relatively new on the workout program market, having made its debut just last year in 2016 (launched in November). The particular emphasis on this exercise program is to base it on various MMA styles, which makes a lot of sense considering the massive popularity of MMA across the country at the moment.

First off is Jericho Matthews holds degrees in psychology, physical education, and kinesiology. She is also certified in personal training by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). [1] A former Reebok sponsored fitness model, she has also traveled extensively over the past decade learning and training fitness instructors across the globe.

The other half of the duo is Joel Freeman who has been active in the fitness business for over 15 years and is a Beachbody celebrity instructor. He is a former Marketing Director for Gold’s Gym ® and an International Certified Fitness Trainer. They both have teamed together to create Core De Force and have worked hard to market the product since its launch last year. Videos about the program can be found on the Beachbody YouTube site. [2]

There are no definitive studies on MMA-style workouts and their effect on overall body fitness and weight loss estimates either. However, we can extrapolate from other studies and reviews done on similar martial arts and boxing-style workouts to demonstrate what could be some potential benefits of the style of conditioning in the Core De Force program.

In an article written in Harvard Health, it describes the various health benefits from fitness boxing. First, it can be a great aerobic exercise. Going through an intense boxing routine can elevate one’s heart rate which can result in several benefits including:

Noticeable improvement on specific brain functions, for instance, engaging in sparring or “shadow boxing” has been shown in studies to that “trying to hit a target with your hands improves eye-hand coordination and can make you feel more alert and attentive.” [4]

For instance, one researcher indicated that better balance resulting from practicing boxing might help “if you encounter a crack in the sidewalk, you may be more successful protecting yourself, because your strength and reaction time may have improved.” [4]

In a study conducted on the effectiveness of specifically kickboxing style workout regimes, the results of the study seemed to indicate that kickboxing training “induced several benefits for aerobic and anaerobic performances, muscle power, speed and agility, and flexibility.” [5]

As for weight loss, there have been studies that have examined the results of a boxing style workout and how effective is it to reducing weight. For instance, “boxing in a ring for an hour can burn as many as 1,035 calories (for a 190-pound man).” [6]

The Beachbody’s Core De Force program website takes great pains to advertise the results of their program by highlighting the before and after photos of several of the clients who used Core De Force. For instance, one client profiled lost 4.5 lbs and 4 inches off her waist at the 30-day mark.

So we have indicated earlier that boxing style workouts can contribute to weight loss if done correctly. Short, high impact routines can produce a cardio effect which can burn calories in a short time span. Core De Force is probably no different than any other similar programs in this regard.

As previously described, the Core De Force Base Kit program consists of 10 MMA-inspired workouts. There is also a 30-day workout routine calendar which you can preview here. Also, there is the Eating Plan which we mentioned. There is a calculation on the first page of the Eating Plan which supposedly allows you to identify your “Calorie Target.” Once you have this, you can find the right meal plan.

As you can see the typical menu is heavy on proteins and vegetables, but very light on the carbohydrates (basic hybrid theory of burning fat more and glucose less, change the fuel makes that happen), This is a diet designed to maximize the energy available for muscle growth while trying to reduce fat. [8]

There are no pending lawsuits against the Core De Force Base Kit program. However, Beachbody, LLC has had a government action taken against it. According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, a summary of the recent settlement or court action is described below:

“Beachbody has agreed to change its website and sales practices to protect consumers better. The Santa Monica-based company, which claims over 23 million customers, also will pay $3.6 million in penalties and restitution as part of a final court judgment… The Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office learned that Beachbody was charging its customers’ credit cards on an automatic, recurring basis for renewals of products and services, without their express prior consent as required by law… [Also] Prosecutors also alleged Beachbody made health-related and other claims about its products that were false, misleading, and not backed by scientific evidence. [11]

The majority of customers purchase Core De Force, and other Beachbody programs, from the company or from resellers or coaches. Beachbody is an MLM or multi-level marketing company and thus more coaches means more sales and a pyramid payment system to recruiting coaches. Core De Force Alternatives
