The Body Coach’s 90 Day Plan: First Impressions

Body Coach 90 Day PlanSo, in a little bit of a self-induced panic, last week I signed up to Joe (@thebodycoach)’s 90 Day Plan. It arrived into my inbox mid-afternoon yesterday.

Having had a very quick read through (while using the free wifi in McDonalds lol) I thought I’d share a few of my initial thoughts and first impressions on what I’ve forced myself into.

I’m actually really impressed if I’m honest. Obviously I haven’t actually started yet so we’ll see what happens, but the detail that the plan goes into is astonishing. The pack for Cycle One alone is 100 pages long! In it Joe explains all sorts of problems with current diet culture, outlines some of the health and fitness buzzwords, explains full nutrition AND numerous different HIIT workouts (+loads more!) and I’m actually a tad overwhelmed!

(Can we just pause to say what we’ve all been thinking? ‘DAAYYMMMMN! Bonjour Monsieur!’)

The plan basically consists of a diet plan/recipes and workout schedule/ideas. Pretty simple stuff but boy oh boy is there a lot to do. It looks like tomorrow I’ll be spending the whole afternoon writing up a massive shopping list and exercise plan for myself (which I’m actually really excited about, and love doing!) I’m also going to have to give the paperwork another read because, as I say, 100 pages!!!

Meals seem pretty simple enough, carbs after workouts, reduced carbs before. Protein and fats are on top, carbs are a bit less useful, etc. One thing to point out is that its not a no carb diet like Atkins or any rubbish like that. I mean, people have died doing no carb. Died. I am not down for that.

I think the hardest thing for me will be the workouts. While 4/5 25 min sessions a week isn’t actually that big, because I’m now in Paris I don’t have a gym set up yet. This is super high on my list, but so is finding friends, so we’ll see. Until then it’s looking like I’ll be doing a few burpee sessions in the Luxembourg Gardens, with all the other crazy fit people doing mad things like skipping for hours, and a lot of Tai Chi.

I’m really pleased that I signed up for this plan, to be honest. I needed something to kick me into shape properly and not restrict me like all my previous attempts at being ‘healthy’. I’m really excited for what’s to come!

As always, I’ll keep you posted!

    Ooo, this sounds promising! I’m really looking forward to hearing what you think of it and whether you think it’s worth the money in the end etc. I’m really looking forward to going back to University in a few weeks so I can get joined up to the gym and start my healthy eating regime properly. It’s so hard to eat properly when I’m at home and being given sugary goodies every single day by my mum haha!

      Haha I know what you mean about struggling with healthy eating at home! Uni is so much better – espeically as you’re in charge of absolutely everything you buy and eat (:
      I’m really looking forward to sharing my progress! xx

    Oh, I wouldn’t have expected that much of a guide! Food plans are where I go wrong so that’d be super helpful :3

    Hmm this sounds like an interesting fitness plan. I run and do yoga every day but I have no clue about HIIT so I’ve been wanting to join a fitness programme for a while. I looked at the Kayla Itsines one but it had very mixed reviews. The problem I have at uni is that I can’t follow the diet plans because I’m catered for….damn! Hope it goes well x
