Ahhhh — running! I know, I’m sure most of y’all are thinking, “I hate running,” Like, a strong NO on that! Well, let me tell you, I used to feel the same way, but I grew to love it over the years. I started small with a short run, then a short race, and who knew I would build to 2 half marathons?! I was never that person!
30 Day Breakaway is a running program designed for those who already love it AND those who “think” they hate it, which is why it’s SO awesome!
I’m looking forward to helping more people rediscover running (or try it for the first time!) and fall in love with it just like I did!
UPDATE: I recently completed this program myself and LOVVVEEED it! I’m sharing more about my experience at the bottom of this blog — scroll down to read it now!
Something about running just makes me feel so free! Plus, I have found once you get consistent with it (like this program will help you do!) you will not only drop inches faster, you’ll feel better too!
And, no matter where you’re at now, by Day 30 you’ll be able to run a full 5K without second-guessing yourself!
You may have heard of, or even tried, a “Couch to 5K” running plan, but there’s something that sets 30 Day Breakaway apart — it combines running and resistance training!
See what it’s all about…
What is 30 Day Breakaway?
30 Day Breakaway is a unique 5K training program that incorporates resistance training (aka strength training) and running! And it’s the FIRST Beachbody program designed to be taken outside and away from the screen.
And this program is designed to be taken at your pace, so whether you already love running or totally hate it, it will work for YOU! For those of you that hate running, you will start slow and build a solid foundation. For those that already love running and workout regularly, you will simply take it up a notch in both areas!
Each day you’ll either run (or walk, or jog — remember, it’s at your pace), or you’ll do a resistance training workout, OR you’ll complete both! I know, it sounds like a lot, but don’t worry, even on days when you’re doing both resistance training and running, you’ll still only spend a max of 40 minutes each day — this program is designed to fit into your busy schedule!
And you’ve got TWO EXTRA calendar options:
- The Advanced Runners Calendar is designed for those of you that already love running and simply wish to up your game!
- The Time Crunch Calander is made for those that need to finish their workout in even less time — this lets you choose from either a run or lifting routine for the day!
What are the resistance training workouts like?
The resistance training workouts are exactly what you’ve come to expect from Beachbody — amazing, easy-to-follow workouts that are quick and effective! In each resistance workout, you’ll either focus on total-body exercises or dial-in on one specific area of the body.
These workouts and will help increase your endurance (essential for runners!), burn fat more quickly, sculpt muscle, and even help you run faster!
What can you expect on your run?
Like most 5K training plans, 30 Day Breakaway uses interval run training, which pushes you for short bursts of time. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be sprinting — you choose a level that works for you, that could mean a brisk walk, slow jog, or a steady run!
No matter where you’re at, you’ll listen to trainer Idalis Velazquez guide you through each run!
You can choose to take your run outdoors or stay inside and use a treadmill. And you’ve got the option to choose from audio OR video, so if you’re running indoors you can watch and follow along through gorgeous landscapes. (Have you see the pictures from this program? I’d LOVE to run there! Check them out below!)
There’s even a “Rainy Day Cardio” routine you can swap out for days when getting out for a run isn’t an option!

Equipment For 30 Day Breakaway
The first thing I recommend you invest in is a comfortable pair of running shoes — you really get what you pay for when it comes to a good pair of running shoes. And I’m telling you, the right pair of shoes will make such a huge difference in how you feel.
My favorite brand when it comes to running shoes is Brooks… they seriously feel like you’re running on a cushion! SO COMFORTABLE!
So, toss those worn-out sneakers and treat yourself to some new shoes!
What else will you need?
- A set of light, medium, & heavy dumbbells
- Beachbody Resistance Loops
- A foam roller
- Running shoes (yeah, I know I mentioned this, but it’s so important!)
The Meal Plan
If you’ve never been much of a runner, you might be surprised to see how many calories you’ll be burning with this program. And that’s why nutrition is SO important, if you’re accidentally under-eating your body won’t be fueled properly to push through and make it to the end feeling strong! But, of course, you don’t want to over-eat either.
So, choosing from one of the plans below will help keep you on track!
Option 1: Ultimate Portion Fix
This program uses convenient portion containers to help you build your meals and ensure you’re getting the right amount of each food group! Along with tips and tricks and loads of great information, it’s also 100% customizable for your goals! If you do better with guidelines and rules to follow to keep you on track, this program is right up your alley.
Option 2: 2B Mindset
2B Mindset is a different type of meal plan that doesn’t just teach you how to eat, but helps you change your relationship with food! If you struggle with emotional eating or want ultimate flexibility in your meal planning, this is the program for you.
But the great news is that access to BOTH of these nutrition plans will be included in 30 Day Breakaway Challenge Packs!
My 30 Day Breakaway Review
I absolutely loved this program for multiple reasons:
- It got me out of the house. Even when I didn’t feel like going out, and always felt so much better after that time outdoors.
- The program was actually FUN and so rewarding seeing your progress each run.
- The combo of running + strength training for runners was so unique and perfect!
I will absolutely be keeping running on my weekly plan, not just for all of the amazing health benefits, but because of how it made me feel! Give it a shot and I promise, you won’t regret it.
