We all have different goals…some of you want to lean out, while others might want to sculpt and maintain what they’ve got or even build more muscle. No matter what your vision is for your ultimate physique, you can get there with The Master’s Hammer and Chisel.
You don’t have time to hit the weights for an hour or two to build an incredible body. But what if I told you it’s not about the time you spend in the gym—it’s all in how you train. Trainers Sagi Kalev and Autumn Calabrese are seasoned trainers and professional fitness competitors. They know how to build bodies that are a work of art—fast—so you don’t have to spend your entire life in the gym. And now, they’ve compiled their best, most efficient methods into one program that will help you sculpt a strong, defined body in only 60 days. It’s called The Master’s Hammer and Chisel™.
Forget about mindless curls and bench presses. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is an innovative resistance training system that incorporates the three phases of muscle sculpting—known as SSP Training. In workouts that are only 30–40 minutes long, you’ll focus on Stabilization, Strength, and Power to relentlessly chip away fat and carve every muscle. The result? A body you can be proud of. A masterpiece.
And if you get The Master’s Hammer and Chisel through me, I can hook you up with a FREE workout DVD called The Master’s Cardio—it’s packed with Sagi and Autumn’s favorite fat-scorching cardio moves to help you shred fat and reveal awesome muscle definition.

The 3 Day Refresh program is a nice, clean jumpstart to getting back on track if you’ve been mostly on your butt, been on vacation, been eating badly for a while and need to get back into gear. If you are already eating healthy, are working out often, this program may not be for you. But it’s definitely for someone who feels like they’ve been chomping down on too much bad food and their stomach just needs a break:
3 Day Refresh + Shakeology Challenge pack: http://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BCP3D160?referringRepId=38957
The exercise for people who either hate cardio, love dancing, or both. I absolutely love this workout and it’s currently rivaling Les Mills Combat for my fav Beachbody workout program ever. It’s a great and fun way to get moving regardless of how fit you currently are and what your fitness goals happen to be.
Cize + Shakeology challenge pack: http://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BCPCZ160?referringRepId=38957
And for a VERY VERY limited time only (I understand that the discount only goes until August 12th):
Imagine a workout plan that comes with an easy to use, intuitive way to eat that doesn’t count calories, doesn’t worry about macros, and doesn’t deprive you of your favorite foods. Chocolate is allowed! I especially love this plan because it teaches all about portion control over deprivation, starvation, and restrictive eating habits which are unsustainable, difficult to maintain in the long term, and ultimately Do Not Work.
The 21 Day Fix comes with color coded containers for different foods and portion sizes, instructions on how to use, and workouts plus a workout schedule for you to use.
Honestly, even once this deal ends I will still recommend this challenge pack as a serious bargain for people looking to manage their fitness goals and lifestyle.
21 Day Fix + Shakeology challenge pack: http://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BCP21D160?referringRepId=38957
Each fitness challenge pack comes with the following:
- A month’s supply of the Shakeology flavor of your choice (I recommend vegan chocolate, especially with either PB2 or peanut butter!)
- Entry into the August challenge group which I run in a private group on Facebook! Workout with others like yourself and get both the motivation and accountability you’re looking for
- FREE trial to club membership in Team Beachbody, which gives you unlimited streaming workouts on demand for your computer, tablet, phone, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, you name it! The regular cost is all of $2 per week. Better than Netflix. 😉
- FREE fitness coaching from me! I am certified in personal nutrition, P90X, and INSANITY, have my own story to tell, and love helping out others with their fitness goals.
- 30 day money back guarantee! Seriously, if you try this for 30 days and decide it all sucks, Beachbody will give you your money back.
I spent the entire weekend in bed with the stomach bug from hell after missing out on a LOT of sleep in the past week. Did I workout? Hells no! I rested, drank fluids, and spent time watching Buffy and Veronica Mars marathons. My kitties were incredibly upset at my absence and I owe them a kitty cuddle movie night, but I badly needed the rest. No workouts for me!
Whether or not you should workout when you’re sick depending on a few things:
- What the illness is and its symptoms
- How severe the illness is
- The type of workout you’re looking to do
Here’s the problem: the same system that helps your body to fight off a cold or a bug is the same system aids in recovery during and after a workout. To tax it would be the same thing as overtraining and would produce the same results. It would also potentially prolong the illness and make it even worse.
If you’re fighting allergies and/or sinus issues, I’ve found that getting the blood circulating helps to clear the passageways and boost the immune system. The key is to listen to your body and not overdo it. I used to spend all winter with sinus and ear infections until I began working out regularly, now I hardly get them at all. I now average getting sick only 1-2 times per year as opposed to several times, especially during the winter. So exercising can be a preventive measure as well provided you are NOT overtraining and are taking care of yourself, getting plenty of rest, etc.
However, if you have a genuine bug with a fever, vomiting, upset stomach, GI issues, etc., you are far better off taking a rest day or two and going easy on yourself. I had a temperature of 101 and the bathroom became a frequent companion, which meant no, no, no workouts. None. I burned all of 1500 calories on Saturday by lying down all day and I had to suck it. So must you!
I am personally the sort of individual that once I get run down for any reason for a few days: lack of sleep, stress, etc I can pretty much expect that if I don’t nip it in the bud soon, my immune system will be compromised and my chance of illness is heightened. So get your zzz’s, take a rest day every so often–even if it’s an active rest day that involves walking or yoga–and remember that rest and recovery is just as important as working out.
I’ll leave you all with this handy image of a list of when NOT to workout, when it is okay, and what forms are good:
Here are the fitness challenge groups I have going on RIGHT NOW:

As you can see, I have a little something for everyone. I even have a purely nutritional fitness challenge group which focuses on drinking Shakeology to get your daily dose of dense nutrition and clean eating, so if you don’t know where to start I recommend joining me there.
The steps to join one of these challenge groups is as follows:
- Buy one of the programs from me through the links in this blog post

Once I see you’ve done both, I will add you to my private fitness challenge group on Facebook where you and others will help to motivate each other and keep each other on track!
Great news! Two of the fastest workout programs–one is 25 minutes long and the other is 10–are both on sale in their fitness challenge packs!
Shaun T is the same trainer who brought you Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, and Insanity: the Asylum. This is essentially a better version of the Insanity program in MUCH less time!
25 MINUTES. 5 DAYS A WEEK. 100% RESULTS.
The only thing standing between you and the results you
want is TIME.
Shaun T experimented for the last year to design a program that delivers the same kind of results you’d expect from an hour-long program, in under 30 minutes. He’s pulled out the rest to give you everything you need, nothing you don’t.
The result is FOCUS T25—and the name implies the intent: If you focus your intensity for 25 minutes, and you do it 5 days a week, you WILL get results.
Tony Horton is the trainer behind Power 90, P90X, P90X2, P90X3, and soon to be released P90. This is P90 or Power 90 in 10 minutes.
NO MORE EXCUSES.
Does finding time to lose weight seem nearly impossible? Try 10-Minute Trainer®. This program is designed with one thing in mind: better results in less time. Give superstar trainer Tony Horton just 10 minutes, he’ll give you the body you want.
In 10-Minute Trainer, Tony put his most effective moves into a series of power-packed total-body workouts. His breakthrough Super Stacking™ Technique combines fat-burning cardio, body toning and sculpting, and ab moves, adding resistance bands for even faster results. In just 10 minutes of Tony’s Super Stacking you can burn as many calories as 30 minutes of jogging. With 10-Minute Trainer, you have no more excuses!
There are also two additional programs on sale:
Hands down, one of my favorite Beachbody workout programs. If you’re a fan of dance cardio but also want some strength training this will be great for you!
