Do you have questions about Beachbody’s new program, Core de Force? If so, I have answers!
What is Core de Force?
Core de Force is 30 days of zero-equipment, core-defining workouts inspired by one of the most intense sports in the world—Mixed Martial Arts. You’ll use moves from boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai combinations, bodyweight training, and cardio spikes—all designed to help you lose the belly and shred body fat. It’s a program that uses bodyweight training to sculpt your muscles, and interval training for intense cardio burn.
Do know why the word “core” is in the title? Because every single move is designed to work your midsection. You know, our trouble spot! Trainers Jericho McMatthews and Joel Freeman teach moves using constant core rotational movement to target belly fat, strengthen your abs and reshape your body.
Core de Force is also lots of fun and you are guaranteed to feel like a badass kicking and punching in your living room. Just check out this preview below!
How are the workouts designed?
Each workout has a series of three minute rounds, just like a real boxing match. In each round you will do combinations of punches and kicks, followed by a “spike.” The spikes are high intensity moves to literally spike your heart rate and burn a ton of calories. You will constantly be reminded to push yourself so you can “earn your break.”
You don’t stop moving until you hear the bell.

Is Core de Force for beginners?
Yes, IF you approach the workout with a fighter’s mentality. It will be challenging, but that’s OK. You need to challenge yourself to change yourself. What’s nice about Core de Force is that there is a modifier who will show lower impact versions of all the moves. But not low intensity!
“We have an incredible modifier, Jessica, and she’s doing lower intensity options and versions of all the moves in the program. And what’s really cool is on Beachbody on Demand you have a split screen view option so you can follow her the entire time. So anyone just starting off on their fitness journey or if you’re coming back from a recovery or coming back from having a baby, she gives you so many different options it’s incredible.” – Jericho McMatthews
