JUST ANNOUNCED: TRANSFORM :20 From Shaun T
OMG… who else is a Shaun T fan? Who else is a fan of SHORT workouts? This program taps into Shaun T’s second biggest strength (right there behind behind an AMAZING trainer) of motivating people through changing the way they look at things. MINDSET IS KEY! Let’s cover some of what we know about Transform :20 already, then if you’re curious about upcoming announcements and test groups make sure you drop your information below so we can keep you updated.
“We got work to do” – Shaun T
TRANSFORM :20 PROGRAM BASICS
- Six weeks
- Six days a week
- 20 minutes a day
- No weights, your own bodyweight and a step is used
- There is a modifier
- Shot in “real time”
If you’ve done Insanity Max 30, you know it’s tough… but the calorie burn will be about the same. How’s THAT for intense? However, even though it’s going to be a new level of INTENSE this program removes ALL excuses. Shaun T’s mission in creating this was to remove the mental barriers people have in committing to a workout. Lack of time? No worries. It’s just 20 minutes. Can’t do high intensity? No power jumps, no diamond jacks, no tuck jumps – No problem. With this program, Shaun T took away things people could complain about. And yes, you CAN do it. There is a modifier, and she doesn’t use the step.
This is a six-week program that will be available to stream on Beachbody on Demand (not on DVD). It’s a six-days-a-week workout program, with a recap on Sundays. If it is similar to past Beachbody releases like 80 Day Obsession, you’ll get the entire upcoming week’s worth of workouts released on Sunday evenings. With Transform :20, you’ll also get to know the cast as the program progresses. There is a reality show that features the cast. You see what they eat, how they get along, how their mindset transforms. You will develop your OWN success story as well. Each day, there is a CHALLENGE. The program doesn’t require weights, but you will need a STEP. You are stepping up, RISING UP. The step is a metaphor for LIFE, people. You’ll learn a lot about yourself as you go through this program! We know that Shaun T is a master motivator in this area (check out his book T Is for Transformation: Unleash the 7 Superpowers to Help You Dig Deeper, Feel Stronger & Live Your Best Life)
Equipment Needed for Transform :20
For this program, Shaun T will be using a STEPPER/riser. However, there will be a modifier that does NOT use it – so you can still do the program if you don’t have one. It will be available to purchase along with the program, or by itself. However, this is not a step aerobics program. Your heart rate will soar, but the focus is on the LEGS – maximizing the time you have.
Transform :20 Challenge Packs
Transform :20 will be AVAILABLE DECEMBER 4th! Act quickly, the steps are expected to sell out. Those that upgrade their enrollment to Coach/VIP Customer status will also be eligible for the Trainer-hosted Test Group that starts in January,. Here are the challenge packs that will be available:
My Transform :20 Results
I was honored to be part of the initial Pilot Test Group of Transform :20 with Shaun T. Along with a select group of other coaches, I was the first to give the entire Transform :20 workout and nutrition program a test run. While on the program, I lost 7 pounds and two inches in my waist. I increased my cardio conditioning and endurance and feel stronger as well, especially in my legs because of the burn I got from using the step. I got the same calorie burn in 20 minutes that I’d typically get in a 30-40 minute workout. After my six weeks, I definitely felt lighter and leaner.
Transform :20 Nutrition and Meal Plans
The details on the nutrition haven’t been announced yet, but if you are a Beachbody on Demand subscriber check out the Insanity Max 30 Program Details and Nutrition Plan. My best guess is they will be similar, since both are Shaun T programs with a similar duration and calorie burn. Plus, what I love about that Nutrition Plan is that it includes restaurant resources and options – great for real-life situations! Sign up for a FREE Beachbody on Demand Trial
Transform :20 is a Good Fit for You IF:
- Are motivated to change your fitness level through mindset. Shaun T will guide you through mental barriers that are holding you back.
- You struggle to get in long workouts each day – at just 20 minutes each workout, there will be NO excuses!
- You are at beginner/intermediate through advanced fitness levels. This program is truly as easy or as difficult as you make it. You can slow down the moves to fit your ability level, and keep in mind that the modifier does NOT use a step.
- You don’t want to buy weights or expensive equipment. The only piece of equipment you need is the step. Your bodyweight does the rest!
- You hate moves like burpees and anything too extreme
- Wants to get in GREAT SHAPE!

My OWN Transform :20 Week One Impressions
I was selected to participate in the Pilot Test Group just for coaches for Transform :20. I wasn’t sure what to expect, the workouts are only 20 minutes long, so I wasn’t sure if that would be enough for me. I was blown away with the intensity. After the first five minutes, I was out of breath, ready for a break. Sadly, no break… just 20 minutes of muscle-building and shredding. What I really like is getting a full workout in a short period of time. As a busy mom, I don’t have a lot of extra time to spend, so this is a great solution.
Three Phases of Transform :20
Every two weeks, you’ll enter a new phase of Transform :20. The first phase is called COMMIT. During this phase, you’ll create new habits and routines, get used to the movements and truly commit to the process.
Phase two is called CLIMB. Great word, considering it’s a step workout, right? The step is such a great representation of what you’ll be doing in this phase… challenging yourself to reach higher heights, set new goals, keep moving upward.
The final phase, called CONQUER, is where your mental resolve really kicks in and allows you to physically master this program as well.
Transform :20 Workout Themes
Each workout has a different name:
Burn though Cut (the Monday through Friday workouts) are intense. You’ll be doing lots of fast-feet movements on the step (think Speed 1.0/2.0 from T25, only with a step), lots of push-ups, lots of burpees, and lots of ab work.
The Balance workout incorporates stretching, lighter cardio, and strength work. It’s the perfect ending to the week, stretching your muscles and improving flexibility.
What are Transformers?
During each 20-minute workout, there are three ‘transformer’ challenges. They each last about a minute, and in that time you’ll challenge yourself to hit as many movements, steps, or motions as you can. Week by week, you’ll see your numbers increase, improving over time. The Transformers are a great way to watch your own progress, and compare yourself to the only one that matters in this… you.
Wait, What… Weights?
It was just announced to the Transform :20 Pilot Test Group participants that we may get some WEIGHTS workouts too, along with a hybrid workout tracking calendar. How cool is that? I don’t think it’s anything we have to keep secret, because Shaun T posted about it publicly on his Instagram Page. More details to come soon!
Don’t Want to Wait?
We don’t either! We know that Transform :20 doesn’t come out for a LOOOONG time (at least it seems that way). But, you can still get RIPPED with Shaun T in the meantime! We have groups starting every 2-3 weeks to help you lose weight, shred fat, and keep your head in the game. A few programs to consider NOW:
- Insanity Max 30
- Focus T25
- Shaun Week on Beachbody on Demand
- Or, try LIIFT 4 from Joel Freeman (great for short workouts, only 4 days a week! — Join our LIIFT 4 Sneak Peek Group on Facebook)

Transform :20 Q&A:
Q: “What kind of workout is it? Can I do it if my knee is troublesome?”
A: It’s a cardio workout, and it’s definitely strenuous. BUT! Like most Beachbody workouts, you can modify. You don’t have to use the step, there are RISERS on the step to make it more difficult. But, above all – listen to your own body!
Apply for the FIRST Transform :20 Challenge Group!
Reach out to me at [email protected] if you’d like to join a group before the release of Transform :20. I can get you started on a hybrid program or another Shaun T workout program as well as a nutrition plan suited to your own needs.

Transform :20 Before and After Pictures and Stories:
Kim writes, “I’m a stay-at-home mom of two. I loved these workouts because 20 minutes a day allowed me to get back to a lifestyle where my entire day wasn’t centered around my workout. It allowed me to schedule more activities for my daughter and I to do while my son was at school. I loved doing the workouts live at 12:30pm because it was right during lunchtime. Most days I finished my workout before my daughter had finished her lunch. This meant that nap time was back to being me time rather than my workout time and that was such a game changer for my life and my business. The results I get from Shaun T programs are always insane. My legs never lean out in any other program the way they do with Shaun’s. My nutrition was on point 90% of the time. I followed the container system but applied what I had learned from 80 Day Obsession and timed nutrition. I drank shakeology daily and used energize before every workout.”
Kim L writes, “I started Transform 20, 8 weeks postpartum and finished with a 3 month old!
I am a mom of a threenager and 3 month boys, wife, coach, LIVE instructor, and full time teacher.
I lost 22.5 inches and 13 pounds and I am back in my Pre pregnancy clothing!!!
Best part is that I ADDED more peanut butter to my diet to get this bod!”
