They say it takes 30 days to break a habit. But what if you could break away from the same old routine and accomplish so much more in that amount of time? In just 30 days, you can:
- Discover the joy of running
- Build a strong and lean physique
- Use that strength and stamina to take on a different kind of goal: completing a 5K
For the first time ever, Beachbody is bringing you a fitness program that’s designed to be taken outside! 30 Day Breakaway is your chance to get back to the basics, cut through the everyday noise, and do what your body was born to do — run. With Super Trainer and track-and-field athlete Idalis Velazquez in your ear and by your side, you’ll get leaner, stronger and 5K-ready in just 30 days. It’s just you and Idalis as she leads you through fast and effective resistance workouts followed by interval run training that pushes you for short bursts at a level that’s right for you, whether that’s a brisk walk, slow jog, or steady run. And come Day 30, you’ll be amazed at how much you’ve improved as you complete a 5K! This is a one-on-one experience designed to remove all distractions, with the option to choose from either video or audio, have you leave your living room, and tune in to Idalis as she helps you connect to your inner runner. So you can finally break away from everything that’s holding you back and help you get more fit, faster and stronger — and ready to finish a 5K — in just 30 days.
What Is 30 Day Breakaway?
30 Day Breakaway is a running and resistance-training challenge made for rapid results. Your goal? Complete a 5K on day 30. You’ll lift to build lean muscle and then head out for runs with Idalis in your ear as she guides you every step of the way. This dynamic combo of running and resistance training will help you incinerate fat as you build strength, endurance, speed, and total-body power. Raining or snowing outside? No problem. Just follow Idalis from your treadmill as she runs through beautiful landscapes, or substitute any run with the Rainy Day Cardio workout for a killer calorie burn in under 20 minutes. These training sessions with a renowned track star won’t just get you a slimmer, more athletic body. By the end, you’ll be able to say you ran a 5K — and have the results to prove it.
Who Is 30 Day Breakaway For?
30 Day Breakaway is for anyone who needs guidance in building a running foundation, someone who wants to run their first 5K, or experienced runners who want to improve and get the most out of their runs. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for a running program paired with resistance training for the ultimate fat-burn. And it’s a great option if you want to get outside for a change.
What Kind of Workouts are Included in 30 Day Breakaway?
You’ll be doing a mix of running and resistance training 6 days a week, 20–45 minutes a day. The 30 Day Breakaway Calendar is geared toward new runners who want to get comfortable with consistent runs and eventually complete a 5K. You’ll start with three walks or runs a week and progressively build up to five, all while lifting on certain days to help build lean muscle that will help power your runs. You can also follow two other digital calendar options:
- The Advanced Runners Calendar is for people who love to run already or want to step up their commitment by pairing runs with a lifting routine 5 days a week for all 30 days.
- The Time Crunch Calendar is for people on a tight schedule. It lets you choose either a run or lifting routine for the day and finish your workout within 30 minutes.
The weightlifting sessions will either target certain areas or work your entire body.
Then comes your chance to break away and take it outside — grab your phone and listen to Idalis’ cues on the Beachbody On Demand app as you work up a sweat. You’ll do different types of running (or walking) workouts using your rate of perceived exertion (RPE) — from moderate, steady-state efforts to speedwork — to help your body adapt and progress quickly. On days when you can’t take your runs outside, you can do the Rainy Day Cardio routine instead.
At the end of 30 days, you’re ready for 5K Day — this is your chance to prove your progress by completing a 5K race in your community. Or you can simply run the 5K total distance on your own in your neighborhood and record the time.
Either way, you won’t shy away from calling yourself a runner after you see how far you’ve come in only 30 days — you’ll even get a 30 Day Breakaway race medal for all your hard work if you submit your results.†
What Equipment Do I Need for 30 Day Breakaway Workouts?
To make the most of the days you’ll be resistance training (and to help relieve tired muscles when you’re not), you’ll need:
- A set of light, medium, and heavy dumbbells
- Beachbody Resistance Loops
- A foam roller
You’ll also need a good pair of running shoes to get your runs started on the right foot.
What Nutrition Do I Need?
For true body-shaping results, you have to commit to breaking away from bad habits in the kitchen, too. That means setting a solid foundation for your day with the help of Shakeology. You won’t just get premium proteins and essential vitamins and minerals; each scoop has antioxidants, pre- and probiotics, phytonutrients, digestive enzymes, fiber, and adaptogens. Shakeology packs all these premium ingredients into a tasty superfood shake to help you eat better, feel better, live better, and feel ready to take on the day — and run — ahead.
For nutrition advice to help you reach your goals, the Beachbody Guide to Nutrition is a great place to start. But to really take charge of your nutrition during 30 Day Breakaway and beyond, 2B Mindset and Ultimate Portion Fix are your go-to, long-term options. Both nutrition programs come free when you purchase a Challenge Pack and each offers a unique approach to weight loss that lets you eat the foods you love while helping you tackle emotional roadblocks that can keep you from breakthrough results. 2B Mindset lets you eat larger volumes of the right foods to help keep you satisfied, while Ultimate Portion Fix takes the guesswork out of eating with color-coded containers that measure out perfectly portioned meals. You’ll also get 7-day sample meal plans no matter which program you decide to follow. And to help you stay accountable and on track, you’ll also get access to the Nutrition+membership, which includes The Mindset Membership and The Monthly Fix. This expanded membership gives you access to nutrition experts Autumn and Ilana, support from a community, delicious new recipes, meal plans, and the latest tools to help you succeed and keep your new habits going.
Idalis is also a big believer in Beachbody Performance Energize and Recover. She’s always looking to absolutely crush her weight training, get the most out of every run, and make sure her muscles are well taken care of after those intense sessions. The powerful trio of beta-alanine, quercetin, and caffeine in Energize has been shown to help boost energy and endurance, which are essential to optimizing your runs. And the 20 grams of critical protein in Recover, with BCAAs and pomegranate extract, help support your body’s recovery.
Are the Workouts Also Available in Spanish?
Yes! Idalis recorded all the video and audio workouts in English and Spanish, so you can choose the language you’re most comfortable with. You’ll find both options on Beachbody On Demand.
Who Is Idalis Velazquez?
Idalis is a NASM-certified personal trainer and creator of Beachbody’s Spanish-language program, Mes de Más. She’s been a dedicated athlete since her days in Puerto Rico, where she ranked nationally as a track-and-field star for 10 years. Now Idalis is going back to her running roots to show what’s possible when you tap into your own inner runner. In the 30 Day Breakaway, she’ll be running some of the most beautiful landscapes to inspire you to do the same — to go out for a run and break away from all the noise — and get transformative results in just 30 days.
