For all my peeps that love mixed martial arts like Judo, Muay Thai, and kickboxing, I am about to review one of the newest fitness programs recently released from Beachbody called Core De Force. Get ready to Fight for It.

core de force reviewWhat is Core de Force?

Core de Force is 30 days of mixed martial arts (MMA)-inspired workouts that slash inches off your waist, blast belly fat, and sculpt total-body definition—no equipment needed. This fitness program was created by Super Trainers Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews who have extensive fitness experience teaching a variety of workouts, from kickboxing to cardio, worldwide.

Core de Force comes with 8 workouts on 3 DVDs that alternate Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai combinations, cardio spikes, and bodyweight training to help you get a knockout body. It also comes with two bonus workouts (5 Min. Core on the Floor and Core Kinetics), and every workout includes a modifier who demonstrates the moves at a lower intensity, so anyone at any fitness level can get knockout results.

Core de Force is for you if:

  • You want to lose belly fat, tighten up your midsections, and give your body complete definition.
  • You love challenging cardio and strength-training workouts like INSANITY MAX:30, TurboFire, and P90X.
  • You are looking for MMA-inspired program.
  • You want to see results quickly.

[embedyt][/embedyt]What is so unique about Core De Force?

CORE DE FORCE mixes moves from boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai with bodyweight training and cardio conditioning, giving you the most effective MMA-inspired workouts to help shred belly fat and transform your body in as little as 30 days. Each move, whether it’s a jab, a kick, or an uppercut, works your core from every angle— this technique is called 360-Degree Core Training.

The workouts are broken into 3-minute “rounds.” Just hit it hard for 3 minutes at a time, punching and kicking away until the bell rings to stop! This program include the CORE DE FORCE Eating Plan, which shows you how to eat for knockout results with Signature Recipes, food lists to take to the grocery store, sample menus, and a revolutionary approach to eating more that fires up your fat-burning metabolism!

Are the Moves Hard?

These workouts are challenging, but even if you’ve never thrown a punch or a kick, you can still use CORE DE FORCE to get in shape. Every workout includes a modifier who demonstrates the moves at a lower intensity, so you can go at your pace until you’re ready to take things to the next level. Plus, every MMA-inspired workout includes a move-by-move breakdown to help you get familiar with the jabs, uppercuts, kicks, and combinations from the get-go.

I am the most uncoordinated person on the planet, and I will say that I struggled a little bit with the moves. It took me 5 tries until I finally got the combinations right, but even if I wasn’t getting everything right, I was panting furiously and sweating profusely. However, despite my two left feet (and fists), I felt pretty badass with my high kicks and hook punches.

Will I have trouble keeping up?

This was my first question when I started doing this program. I am not very experienced with boxing or kickboxing terminology and even though I watched the move breakdowns before doing the workout itself, I still had struggles. BUT, I could do it at my own pace. There is no music coordination with these moves, and the class is expected to go about the move combos at their own pace. I even noticed this with the modifier who was slower, but following her own pace. It was pretty damn nice.

How long are the workouts?

Most workouts are between 27–47 minutes.

Do I need any equipment to do this program?

Nope! Your body is all the equipment you need for this program.

What type of workouts are in Core De Force?

Core De Force comes with eight MMA-INSPIRED WORKOUTS ON three DVDS, including:

  • MMA Speed
    Upper body- and core-focused, this Boxing-influenced workout is short—but packs a serious punch. (6 rounds – 27 mins)
  • MMA Shred
    Kick things up a notch with Muay Thai-inspired elbows and kicks for a head-to-toe shred that helps lean you out fast. (9 rounds – 37 mins)
  • MMA Power
    Using explosive and defensive-style movements, this fast-paced, cardio-conditioning workout will help you carve a tight, lean body. (12 rounds – 47 mins)
  • MMA Plyo
    What happens when you combine Boxing, Muay Thai, and plyometrics into one workout? You get a total-body shred designed to knock out hundreds of calories and spike your fat burn into overdrive. (12 rounds – 47 mins)
  • Power Sculpt
    A total-body burner that uses explosive power and interval training to help sculpt lean muscle and build next-level endurance. (9 rounds – 37 mins)
  • Dynamic Strength
    Low on impact but high on intensity, this no-equipment, bodyweight throwdown helps carve impressive definition. (12 rounds – 47 mins)
  • Active Recovery
    Recharge for the week ahead with this rest day workout that focuses on form and technique to fight muscle stiffness and soreness. (21 mins)
  • CORE DE FORCE Relief
    The quickest stretch ever. Do this 5-minute stretch before bed to help relieve tight and tired muscles—and keep you at the top of your game. (5 mins)

  1. I have a friend who was looking on how to lose belly fat, tighten up his midsections and he has been trying different products and know I know this is just the best time for me to tell him about this great products. I personally love it and enjoy it effects.
    thank you.

  2. What an awesome website! I never realized how much MMA could help reduce unwanted weight and trim a person down. I always assumed…..oops, that MMA was for people that wanted to beat each other up for sport. LOL This website is an awesome place to gain knowledge and information on martial arts training and guidance.

    Thank you so much.

  3. Hi Amanda,
    This looks like a great challenge! I’m not a fan of the violence of MMA or boxing, but I do appreciate the incredible personal challenge of it, the science of it and the sheer will and determination it takes to succeed. Earlier this year, I began doing some basic boxing-style training and was astounded at the results. I’ve become almost addicted to it.
    So I suppose I’m offering, for anyone who stops by, that you don’t have to get in a ring and fight someone to enjoy and appreciate the benefits of a workout like this. I can imagine the energy and confidence this style of workout must create!
    Your site looks fantastic. Great job. Keep up the great work and keep on swinging!
    Best wishes,

  4. Wow the before and after photos are amazing. Really good review, great post.
