There’s no denying it, friends. We’re in the THICK of the holidays. The cookies are out. The egg nog is flowing. There is fudge and candy canes and gingerbread at every turn.
I don’t know about you, but I’m READY FOR THE NEW YEAR.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m just as ready for Christmas with my family. I’m ready to slow down, enjoy the holiday through the eyes of my boys and just RELAXING with them. But let’s face it. The winter holidays are fraught with temptation landmines. They are everywhere. Hence my desire to start the new year. With a fresh focus on nutrition – and there is nothing better (for me) to help with motivation, than a new program. Enter The Master’s Hammer & Chisel.
I can hear you now, “Missy, you love EVERY new program.”
Honestly? I DO.
I love them all for different reasons – mostly because I know they will help SOMEONE reach their goals. Someone who might think working out isn’t for them, or someone who needs a new challenge.
But this time? This time, I’m excited FOR MYSELF.
The Master’s Hammer and Chisel contains 12 different workouts and all of them run about 30 or 40 minutes each. They take proven techniques from Sagi Kalev and Autumn Calabrese and build you a 60 day program tailored to YOUR GOALS.
The nutrition is simple and flexible, too. Included is an easy-to-follow and completely customizable nutrition plan (that’s what I mean when I say YOUR GOALS), along with 7 portion-control containers that show you how to eat the right amount of food in the proper proportions.
These are the SAME containers used in the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme. I can tell you they have been a GAME CHANGER for me and my clients. I have seen more of my friends bust through plateaus and learn how to fuel their bodies the right way, thanks to just 7 color-coded containers. Unbelievable.
This new program combines the expertise and proven training techniques of two seasoned trainers who’ve spent decades acquiring the tools, skills, and experience needed to transform your body into a masterpiece.
And they have quite the resumes. Take a look:
- Co-creator Sagi Kalev was crowned Mr. Israel–twice–and is a Master Professional Personal Trainer, IFBB Pro, member of the IFBB Propta Hall of Fame, Certified Nutrition Specialist, and Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist. Seriously. The dude knows his stuff. Plus, he’s the mastermind behind Body Beast.
- Co-creator Autumn Calabrese is a celebrity trainer, best-selling author, and working mom who has held certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and the American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), and has competed at the national level in various bikini competitions. Not to mention, she’s the woman who brought you the genius that is The 21 Day Fix family of products.
The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is built on the three phases of SSP Training—Stabilization, Strength, and Power. Other programs only focus on one or two phases, which might give you decent results. But The Master’s Hammer and Chisel program incorporates all three methods to help you chip away fat and carve every muscle for a strong, visually stunning body in 60 days.
Is this a mash-up of Body Beast & 21 Day Fix Extreme?
Yes and no. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel allowed Sagi and Autumn to combine their own effective body-sculpting techniques into this comprehensive resistance-training program. So in that sense, they are similar. But there are differences:
- Body Beast is a bodybuilding program that focuses on muscular hypertrophy. The Master’s Hammer and Chisel includes aspects of bodybuilding, but also focuses on improving endurance, power, agility, strength, balance, and range of motion.
- 21 Day Fix EXTREME is a shorter, goal-specific program, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is a full 60-day program with slightly longer workouts. 21 Day Fix EXTREME focuses on getting you shredded in the shortest time possible, while The Master’s Hammer and Chisel also helps you improve other aspects of your fitness – muscular endurance, power, strength, and agility.
Sagi and Autumn have made eating for your goals simple. That’s why they included their easy-to-follow and completely customizable nutrition plan, along with those handy 7 portion control containers.
The flexible nutrition plan allows you to achieve one of 3 goals:
- lean out
- sculpt and maintain
- build muscle
Since Sagi and Autumn recognize that everyone has different fitness goals, their easy-to follow nutrition system lets you customize your eating plan to reach them. So whether you want to carve a lean, toned body, sculpt and maintain what you’ve got, or build more muscle, you’ll eat the right portions to get the body YOU want.
The Nutrition Plan Quiz to recalculate your calories to help you reach your goals, and like the calorie breakdowns in 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, the ones in The Master’s Hammer and Chisel also include the number of color-coded, portion-control containers your bracket requires each day to meet your goals.

I’ve completed Body Beast, 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme. I can tell you, Sagi and Autumn know what they’re doing. They’ve helped transform my body and kept me in great shape. I’ve had two boys and I’m in better shape now than I ever was before I had kids. Trust me. These workouts WORK.
While I haven’t officially started The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, I am like a kid with a Christmas present, and I couldn’t wait to bust it open. So I’ve been “trying out” the workouts for the past couple of weeks and I AM IMPRESSED. I’m honestly so looking forward to this program, because I know it’s going to challenge and change me.
Don’t be afraid to lift weights! A lot of women get nervous about lifting weights. They’re afraid they’re going to bulk up and look manly. Let me tell you, it would take A LOT of lifting to get that way. For women, we just don’t have enough testosterone in our bodies to bulk like guys do. We build long, lean, fat-burning muscle. Believe it. Building muscle is THE BEST thing you can do if you want to lose fat.
I want to start!! What kit do I need?
You definitely have options when it comes to The Masters Hammer and Chisel.

Why do I suggest the Challenge Pack? Because it’s the whole package. You get fitness. You get nutrition. And you get me as a coach and all of the accountability and support that entails.
