Shift Shop FAQ

What is Shift Shop?

Welcome to my complete Shift Shop FAQ.

I have received several emails about Beachbody’s newest workout program, Shift Shop.  To make it easier to answer all the questions, I have decided to compile a Shift Shop FAQ with some of the most common questions.  Hopefully your question is answered below about Chris Downing’s newest Beachbody workout, Shift Shop.  However if it’s not, please feel free to reach out to me.

When is Shift Shop going to be available?

It’s available NOW!  Click to order…

Please note, the Challenge Pack includes everything you need, PLUS, access to Beachbody OnDemand, ability to stream the workouts, one-month of Shakeology, bonus workouts, and much more at a discounted price.

If I’m using Beachbody on Demand, how do I get the markers?

Simple, log into your account and click, “SHOP”. You’ll find the markers in your store.  If you do not have a FREE account, you can create and access it by clicking the link below:

What is included with Shift Shop?

The full Shift Shop workout videos, nutrition plan, and workout schedule are included.  The Shift Shop Challenge Pack also includes access to Beachbody OnDemand, one-month of Shakeology, free bonus workouts and gifts, and much more tools to help you see amazing results – all at a discounted price!

What is the meal plan like with Shift Shop?

The nutrition program uses Portion Fix to measure out your food. Based on your current weight, you’ll go into a category according to the Shift Shop plan. What’s different is your food list – it changes throughout the 3 weeks of the program. You might be allowed certain foods in week 1 that you’ll no longer be allowed to eat in week 3.

For example, in week 1 your yellow containers include quinoa, spaghetti squash, oatmeal, and more. In week 2, this list cuts down and you’re allowed the basics like baked potatoes and sweet potatoes as your starchy carbs. In week 3, you don’t get any yellow containers but you increase good fats and proteins and veggies are unlimited.

So you will use the Portion Fix containers for the size, but the nutrition plan for the program alters the foods that you’ll be eating in order to get yourself into that maximum fat burning mode.

Is Shift Shop geared towards fat loss or gaining muscle?

Shift Shop is geared for everybody!  It’s a great mix of cardio, agility, endurance, resistance, balance, core, etc.  The workout can be tailored to any specific goal based on your intensity level, modification and meal plan alterations.

Is Shift Shop hard?

It’s not hard, but it’s really what you tell yourself! If you think you’re afraid of the program, you’re going to be afraid of the program. If you go into each workout with a positive attitude and set intentions for what you want to get out of it, you will succeed.  Don;t worry, there is a full modifier to follow along with.  It is modifiable, it is totally doable, and trying this program is better than saying it’s too hard and not doing anything at all.

How long are Shift Shop workouts?

The workouts are different each week.

Week 1 has 25 minute workouts with Speed on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Strength on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and abs on Thursday and Saturday.

Week 2 is 35 minutes plus the extra 10 minute abs on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Week 3 is 45 minutes with the extra 10 minutes on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Don’t be deterred by the 45 minute workouts! They go so damn quick!

There is a rest day on Sundays with an optional Mobility stretching program on Sundays.

What other accessories do I need for Shift Shop?

First off, for shoes, I’d recommend cross trainers with great sole support.  As for everything else, you’ll need some weights, the markers, and a good mat or padded area when you have to hit the floor. You’ll be on the ground at times so you want to make sure you have a bit of a cushion.

Does Shift Shop need a lot of space?

You do need some space, but nothing too crazy – so if you live in a small house or tiny apartment, move some of the furniture aside and you’ll be fine.  You can put your markers closer together but you’ll need the living room or the garage to move around when you do cardio.

Is Shift Shop good for anyone?

Absolutely! Shift Shop is a great transition from any Beachboy program! You really are supposed to change it up every 90 days, whether it’s your nutrition or your workout routine, so your body will be worked in different ways which gets you different results.  So no matter what program you have done before Shift Shop, this will be a great shock to the system to break through any plateaus you may be experiencing.


Great, here are the Shift Shop packages you can order:

Please note, the Challenge Pack includes everything you need, PLUS, access to Beachbody OnDemand, ability to stream the workouts, one-month of Shakeology, bonus workouts, and much more at a discounted price.
