Core de Force is a new mixed martial arts-based workout released by the team at Beachbody. Find out everything you need to know about Core de Force today in our review.
What is Core de Force?
Core de Force is a new Beachbody workout coming in December 2016. The sales page for Core de Force just launched online – and we have early details about what the program is and how it will work.
Core de Force is described as “Your 30-Day Countdown to a Knockout Body”. It was created by trainers Joel and Jericho.
The workout requires no equipment and focuses largely on refining your core. The workouts are inspired by mixed martial arts (MMA), described by Joel and Jericho as “the most high-octane sport in the world”.
What Type of Workouts Are Available?
So what kinds of exercises will you actually be performing in Core de Force? How does the program kick your body into shape? Core de Force will trim down your body in 30 days, helping you reshape your body with boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai workouts “from every angle”, explains the sales page. Some of the key features of the program include:
- MMA-style workouts
- Bodyweight training that sculpts your overall definition
- Explosive cardio interval workouts to maximize calorie burning
- Boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai workouts that engage your core
In an introductory video for the program, participants are seen punching, kicking, and kneeing the air while performing other MMA style workouts. These moves are mixed with lunges, jumps, squats, and other exercises.
Core de Force actually uses intense, three minute rounds, “just like a real boxing match”. If you can go at high intensity for 3 minutes before taking a break, then this might be the workout program for you.
“You don’t stop fighting until you hear the bell. Leave it all in the ring.”
No equipment is needed at all. All workouts rely on your own bodyweight.
The program lasts for 30 days, including 30 to 45 minute workouts 3 to 5 days a week.
What Kinds of Results Can You Expect While Following Core de Force?
Core de Force is a brand new program that is launching in December 2016. However, Beachbody has already tested the program on a group of early participants. The results of those workouts are posted on the Core de Force website. Obviously, these results are not typical. However, they are the real results of people who followed the Core de Force program.
- Tanya A., age 52, lost 24 pounds and 8 inches off her waist after completing 3 rounds of Core de Force
- Ben S., age 37, also completed 3 rounds and lost 10 pounds and 3 inches off his waist
- Marsha J, age 43 completed 3 rounds and lost 20 pounds and 7 inches off her waist
- Roger P, age 38 lost 18.5 pounds and 4 inches off his waist
- April I., age 38, completed 2 rounds of Core de Force and lost 2.5 inches off her waist and 9 pounds
- Kenny C., age 36, lost 8 pounds and 2 inches off his waist while following the program
Obviously, every workout program has test subjects they point to as evidence that the program works. These are the six people mentioned on the Core de Force sales page – so there’s obviously going to be some bias. We’ll have to wait until December 2016 to see the results “real people” get while following the program.

Should You Sign Up for Core De Force?
You’ve seen MMA before. You’ve watched it on TV. Maybe you’ve even tried a few moves around the house. Or maybe you’ve signed up for kickboxing or Muay Thai classes in the past.
Whatever the situation may be, combat sports are obviously very good for core and body strength. They’re also some of the best cardio training you can do. Core de Force is an MMA-style workout that involves rapidly punching, kicking, and attacking the air around you. It’s a series of high-intensity workouts that take place over 3 minute rounds and work the entire body – with a special emphasis on your core.
Whether you enjoy MMA or you’re totally new to the sport, Core De Force is a Beachbody workout program that you can perform at home with no equipment. You can sign up at Beachbody.com to be alerted once Core De Force is officially released in December 2016.
