Unfortunately, the marriage did not last very long for Calabrese as she later divorced from her husband on mutual terms.
After realizing that they’ve grown apart for a very long time, both sat down and had that hard talk, which led to the mutual decision of getting a divorce.
After five years, Calabrese and Guzman got a divorce.
Autumn Calabrese’s Husband Did Not Support Her
A multi-millionaire fitness expert at the moment was struggling to find support and motivation back in the days.
During the mid-2010s, while Calabrese was married to a restaurant manager husband, things were different for her.
She had already started her training business back then, but it all shut down when her husband got transferred to Dallas.
Autumn left her growing personal training business and moved to Dallas along with her then-six months old son Dominic.
During her days as a personal trainer, Autumn’s husband did not give her any support and told her to pursue her passion.
After the family left Los Angeles and settled to Dallas, Autumn began regretting her decision to move to Dallas every single day.
After five weeks, Autumn made her decision to leave Dallas with her young son and to move back to Los Angeles.
Her husband stayed behind and let her go in mutual understanding. After three months, her husband also flew back to Los Angeles and began living together.
By the time her spouse returned to Los Angeles, Calabrese had already hired a nanny to look after her son and began working on her growing business.
What caused Autumn Calabrese’s Divorce?
The question regarding what caused her husband to turn into an ex-husband always befuddles fans.
The best way to put this is – Calabrese and Guzman’s divorce reason was the difference in thinking.
While Autumn wanted to go full-time with her fitness journey, her husband never really showed any interest in helping her develop it into a business.
It caused Autumn to sit on her multi-million-dollar idea, just like that.
After divorce, it dawned upon Calabrese that it was time she starts and goes with her passion in full swing.
The fact that Kent did not object when Autumn wanted to leave Dallas shows that he wasn’t fully against Autumn’s will.
As mentioned earlier, Autumn and Kent just drifted apart slowly.
That said, divorce was something that both of them contributed to, and no one was solely responsible.
Moreover, the divorce between Autumn and Kent happened to be one of the best things ever; for both of them.
Autumn and Ex-Husband Kent After Divorce
After divorce, initially, Autumn and Kent went through some trouble but soon figured out how they could work things out.
Before getting divorced, both Calabrese and Guzman had decided to become dedicated co-parents.
Kent left to San Diego because of work for a couple of years, which created a lot of issues in proper co-parenting.
After looking for solutions, Autumn thought that the best thing would be to ask her ex-husband, a man she trusted very much to become her assistant.
This idea solved two problems. Their son Dominic did not have to be looked after by nannies, and Autumn also got a personal assistant whom she could trust completely.
At first, Kent thought that Autumn was talking crazy. But after thinking it through, Kent came around and decided to become her assistant.
Right now, the couple works seamlessly as both co-parents and as co-workers as well.
How Did Calabrese Start?
For Calabrese, it was all about creating a product that helped and benefitted people.
After divorce, she went full steam with her product and only after finishing it in 2012 did Calabrese went on to share it with people.
From one friend to their friend, Calabrese’s product got word-of-mouth advertisement.
Like that, her product went to Beachbody, and that’s how she started.
What was her product?
Calabrese called it “Change My Plate.” A simple yet very effective portion control program that solely focused on helping people control their portion size.
21 Day Fix Program
Two years after her successful product hit the market, Calabrese began formulating a fitness and nutrition program.
She called it 21 Day Fix.
Calabrese had formulated the program after successfully collaborating with Montel Williams, an actor, and producer.
Her Change My Plate concept fit perfectly with her new fitness program, which also became a reason why it took off.
