So What Is a Super Block?
By now you’ve probably heard of BODi Blocks — 4 new programs that start on the first Monday of every month.
Each Block features 5 workouts a week for 3 weeks, followed by an “UP Week” (which stands for “Unconditional Progress”) to reset and recover.
A Super Block is when our Super Trainers remake one of their most popular programs in the BODi Block format.
This is your chance to revisit your favorite programs — like 21 Day Fix or T25 — with new workouts, new playlists set to popular music, and an entirely new experience.
It’s all about giving you more of what you love, plus a little push to get you where you want to go.
Why are Blocks such a breakthrough?
They’re based on block periodization, a proven approach to exercise and recovery that challenges you without overtraining.
It’s all about helping you create consistency with your Health Esteem routine.
Your life is busy. Pretending you’re going to work out every day and never eat a cookie is silly.
So, we’re ditching the perfection mindset and bringing you new programs every month that you can actually stick to because they work with real life. Really.

Super Block May Spotlight: Barre Blend With Elise Joan
What Is the Barre Blend Super Block?
You’ve never done workouts quite like this. Elise has taken ballet barre and made it approachable for everyone, regardless of fitness level or previous experience. And there’s no at-home barre required!
It’s a 3-week program that will challenge you — body and mind — as you strengthen and tone your physique with barre moves and resistance training, and get your heart pounding with interval training.
Elise’s incredible moves, effective pacing, and inspiring teaching style will help you feel more confident and motivate you to express yourself in every workout.
What kinds of workouts can I expect?
You’re going to love the simplicity of the Barre Blend Super Block. It’s 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 3 weeks.
During this workout journey, you’ll do Elise’s specialized combination of strength and interval training, and barre workouts to target your entire body, especially your booty, legs, and core.
Elise’s workouts are full of mindset-strengthening inspiration as well. Every workout’s theme is based on a different affirmation, and during the workout, Elise will pose thought-inspiring questions to help you become physically and mentally stronger.
At the end of the 3 weeks, Elise will guide you through your UP week with Barre Blend Flow Motion (an active recovery resistance workout designed to boost muscular endurance) and Barre Blend Hustle & Flow (a workout focused on flexibility, range of motion, balance, and yoga flow).
You’ll also unlock 3 bonus rides with Elise that will challenge you, leaving you dripping in sweat and beaming with confidence.
How is this evolving from the original program?
It’s the same Barre Blend you know and love, now rethought for 2023 with an updated look and feel.
The Barre Blend Super Block is just like Elise’s original program but with a block periodization and Health Esteem twist.
These high-energy workouts are designed to be fast and effective, with two days of rest per week to allow your body time to recover and avoid burnout.
Do I need any equipment?
You’ll only need a few pieces of equipment for this Super Block, like lightweight dumbbells, resistance loops, and a sturdy chair or barre.
You can also bring a yoga mat to your workouts for a little extra cushion.
How do I know if the Barre Blend Super Block is right for me?
This is a program for anyone who wants to level up their limits and level up their body.
Super Trainer Elise Joan has made barre workouts accessible for all fitness levels and backgrounds with a combination of high-energy, low-impact ballet barre moves and strength and interval training that will invigorate your entire body.
You don’t need a background in ballet or any kind of dance to participate — just a desire to try new things, give your all, and continue your Health Esteem journey.

For Beginners Only Super Block
In the For Beginners Only Super Block, Lacee Green builds you up from your very first workout with expert cues and encouraging words to guide you safely and effectively through a range of exercises.
As you progress into Week 2, she introduces more intensity — but still at your pace — with precise coaching in every move. You’ll build off these first weeks by taking all the movements you’ve learned and combining them in Week 3.
FBO is for you if you need to learn exercise fundamentals and want to fast-track your progress, or if you’re getting back into fitness after a break.
21 Day Fix Super Block
It’s everything you love about 21 Day Fix with Autumn Calabrese — now in a Super Block! The workouts are similar to 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Real Time. The moves are new, but the structure repeats over 3 weeks so you know what to expect.
Autumn designed it so you’ll make progress each week as you gain confidence, push harder, increase your weights, and get stronger day by day.
FOCUS T25 Super Block
The FOCUS T25 Super Block is 3 weeks of cardio, lower- and upper-body weighted and bodyweight moves, and dynamic core work that all intentionally progress week by week as you get stronger.
The original FOCUS T25 pushed your limits in 3 cycles — Alpha, Beta, and Gamma — with 25 minutes of cardio and strength.
Shaun T now brings you the Delta edition, taking that efficient formula and injecting plenty of fresh, dynamic moves (you’ll notice an uptick in weightlifting) while motivating you to reach for your personal best.
Job 1 & Bike 1 Super Block
The Job 1 Super Block with Jennifer Jacobs is 3 weeks long, with 3 strength and 2 cardio workouts per week that are perfect for all fitness levels.
You’ll start with targeted strength training, get sweaty and energized with all-out HIIT days, challenge every muscle with dumbbells and resistance loops, and do heart-pounding bodyweight moves with minimal rest.
Finish every week with classic strength training and bodyweight intervals to help build muscle and endurance, and torch fat.
Jennifer’s high-energy Bike 1 Super Block is a spin on the Job 1 concept: 20 minutes of work, 5 rides each week for 3 weeks.
You’ll focus on endurance, strength, speed, and power using varying terrains and ride styles.
