BOD – All Access

With 2017 right around the corner, Beachbody just released something that I think is a huge game changer.  They just made the Beachbody On Demand – All Access option available.  I’ve been using Beachbody on Demand (BOD) for over a year now and see some huge benefits to...

September Check-In

Hey Team! I know it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me, but I’m still here plugging away!  I was not intending to be so quiet over the last 5 months, but with a new day job and our first son being born life has been a little busy.  Those are both great...

March Check-In

Hi team! I know today is the last day of March, but I hope this month has treated you well!  I’ve been a bit quieter than normal, but that’s because our family grew by one this month!  We welcomed our baby boy to the world on March 17th and have been focusing on making sure...

Tom’s Hammer ...

Round 1 of Hammer & Chisel officially ended as of a few weeks ago and I wanted to update you all on my Hammer & Chisel results and give my thoughts on the program.  This is the first program I’ve done that has two trainers and I had the pleasure of participating in a...

February Check-In

Happy February Team! We’re roughly 2 months into the year, and this is when it can be really tough to stick with your plan. The workouts might seem less exciting and the nutrition plan might seem tough to stick to, but if you keep it up now and push through this is when you really...

Active Maternity –...

With just three weeks to go until my due date, I’ve been working out to Active Maternity – Trimester Three for about eight weeks now and wanted to post a review for all you future mamas out there! In case you missed my last review, I talked about the Trimester Two workouts...

Secret to Success

Whether it’s your fitness journey, your Coaching career, your day job, or many other areas of your life, it’s easy to see others be successful and wonder how they did it. Well it’s your lucky day because I’m going to fill you in on what their secret to success is....

January Check-In

Hi team! I hope your 2016 is off to a great start! This is right around the time where the struggle gets real to keep up with your New Year’s resolutions, so I thought it would be a good time to reach out. If you’re hanging in there, that’s awesome! You are well on the...

2 Week Hammer & Ch...

I’ve done both Body Beast and the 21 Day Fix, so I have good experience with both Sagi and Autumn as trainers, so when I heard that they were releasing a program together, I was super excited! I was probably like many guys who thought the 21 Day Fix wasn’t that hard and was...

2015 Review & Look...

2015 is nearly two weeks behind us and 2016 is in full swing! I thought I’d take some time to reflect on how 2015 went and where I want to be in 2016. I think reflection is always a good thing and the new year is the perfect time to analyze your goals, realize what’s working...

Active Maternity –...

Hi everyone! It’s Rochelle here (Tom’s wife) making an appearance on Team New Body! I’m super excited to be posting here today and to announce that starting this year, I’ll be joining Tom as a coach via our current team. As you may or may not know, Tom and I are...

Happy December team! How are you planning to end 2015?  Are you losing or are you building momentum?  I really hope it’s the latter.  The beginning of a new year is always a common time to refocus on your health, but there’s no need to wait until January.  I know my diet...

October Check-In

Hi team! I hope October has been going well for you! It’s been a busy time in our household and a lot of exciting things have been happening. Plus it’s been beautiful out with cooler temps and fall colors so I can’t complain about much 🙂 I’ve switched my...

21 Day Fix Review

I honestly never thought I would even do the 21 Day Fix.  I had been doing Body Beast for about a year and have always thought the 21 Day Fix was more geared towards women.  But Rochelle said she wanted to work out with me again, so I figured we’d give it a try.  The workouts are...

Monthly Check-In

Hi Team! It’s nearing the end of August, so I wanted to get my monthly check-in out to you all! I hope your summer has been a great one! As we head into fall, it seems like schedules always get busier. If you have kids, it means school, extra-cirriculars, sports etc are all starting...

July Check-In

Hey Team! I know it’s been too long since you’ve heard from me. Things have been pretty crazy on my end, but I’ve still been responding to messages and emails, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you need some help! I’ve also been bringing it with my workouts,...

21 Day Fix Challenge

As some of you know, I’ve spent the last year doing Body Beast, with some powerlifting thrown in.  It has been a ton of fun, I’ve made lots of good friends, and I’ve met a lot of my goals.  We even had a sweet powerlifting competition that brought out the best in...

Big 3 Competition

If you’ve been following the blog lately you probably know I’ve been doing Body Beast for quite a while and have even mixed in some powerlifting training as well.  It’s been a ton of fun for me, as it’s been a good switch in routine, and the powerlifting gives me...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! I hope your weeks are going great!  Can you believe we are almost 90 days into the new year?  If you started at the beginning of January, you could be finishing up a round of P90X right now.  It certainly can seem like a daunting task when you’re starting out, but...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team New Body! I hope your March is off to a great start!  We’re finally breaking into spring around here and I love it!  We’ll still get some cold days and some more snow, but we’re nearing the end.  At least the snow provides some extra exercise! I’m...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! Happy Thursday!  I hope you’ve been rocking February!  I know for me, this time of year is always tough.  Winter is getting long and I’m severely lacking in Vitamin D, but hopefully in a couple short months things will warm up and it will almost be time for...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Thursday Team New Body! We are officially 1 month into the new year!  This is often a time when those New Year’s Resolutions can seem like a thing of the past.  How have you been doing so far in 2015?  Are you still hanging in there or did your initial motivation wear off?...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! I realized it’s been a while since I’ve sent a check-in out to you, so my apologies for that!  Things have been pretty busy around here but I haven’t forgotten about our team!  There’s a lot of action going on in our Team Facebook Group, so don’t...

Beast Rules

I’ve been doing Body Beast for a good 6 months now and I’ve absolutely been loving it.  It’s a great program if you’re looking to focus on resistance training and want some serious motivation!  I’ve been loving my results and I have a huge group that...

New Year’s Resolu...

I feel like New Year’s resolutions can really get a bad rap.  Sure, many people set out with goals to get healthier, lose weight, start saving money, etc and they don’t achieve their goals.  But that’s life.  Not everyone is going to stay focused, but that...

Weekly Check-In

Merry Christmas team! Christmas has sure snuck up on me this year as it always seems to!  But I love this time of year.  We get to celebrate the birth of Jesus and spend time with family and friends.  It really doesn’t get better than that.  For many of my family members, it...

Health Benefits of Pets

This is not a typical post on my blog, but we just adopted a puppy and I thought it would be interesting to look into the health benefits of pets.  I’ve often heard that kids who grow up with pets are healthier and that people who own pets are healthier in general.  It makes...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! Happy Wednesday!  This week is is often times a pivotal week for people in their fitness journey around the holidays.  Thanksgiving food often spills over into the weekend, but come Monday morning there are two ways to go.  Do you let the food keep coming and slack off with...

Thanksgiving Check-In &...

Happy early Thanksgiving team! I just wanted to say thank you for being an awesome team to be a part of!  You continually motivate me and keep me focused on my health which I love, and hopefully our team provides a place for you to stay encouraged by seeing other people striving to get...

Check-In

Hi Team! Long time no check-in, right?  Sorry about that!  I’ve been crazy busy lately, so I haven’t been writing as much, but I’ve been trying to stay plugged in with our Facebook group.  If you’re curious about what I’ve been up to, this will give you an...

Weekly Check-In

Hey team! Happy Wednesday, I hope you are crushing this week so far!  Up north where I am, it seems like summer came to an abrupt halt and we’re on the fast track to winter.  With colder weather and it being pitch black out when I get up, it can certainly make it tough to feel...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! Can you believe September is already here?!?  I think it’s just crazy and it feels like this year is flying by.  I hope you enjoyed your Labor Day and had a chance to spend some time with friends or family. Now that I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for over...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! Happy Wednesday!  Sorry I’ve missed a couple check-ins, it’s been a pretty crazy month around here.  I hope you’re still plugging away and working towards your goals.  I’ve found that this time of year can be really difficult for a lot of people.  I...

Comparison

Ever find yourself wishing you looked like someone else?  That celebrity you see in a magazine, the people you see on TV or just someone else you look up to in general?  I think this topic can apply to many areas of our lives, but I feel like it’s really rampant when it comes to...

Chris Pratt Loses Weigh...

I’m kind of a big Parks and Rec fan, and if you’re familiar with the show you know Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer.   I love his character on the show and just find him hilarious. A while back we were at a movie and I saw a preview for Guardians of the Galaxy.  Now I can’t...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! Hard to believe that July is almost over, but it is!  Summer is moving right along quickly like it always seems to.  If you look back on this month, what are some things that you are proud that you accomplished and what are some things you’d like to improve...

Body Beast Sale

If you’ve followed my journey at all you know I’ve done a few rounds of Body Beast.  If you haven’t, you can check out my Body Beast Results and Body Beast Review.  If you like hybrids, check out my P90X/Body Beast Hybrid.  Needless to say, it’s by far one of...

3 Day Refresh Results

I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical when I first heard about the “3 Day Refresh results” other people were having.  I’ve never been big on doing cleanses and have actually never completed one, but I was hearing that people were losing 3-5 lbs and feeling great...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! Can’t believe we’re already at mid-week again!  Seems like it sneaks up on my every time.  So far my week has been laser focused, in large part due to the Year Of The Beast group I’m a part of.  The energy and motivation is crazy.  It’s a...

Fitbit Flex Review

These days there are countless devices to monitor your health, workouts, weight, etc.  Nike, Polar, Garmin, Fitbit, etc., the list really goes on and on.  I’ve had a heart rate monitor for a long time, but I’ve never had an activity tracker.  So when I was offered the...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! To all my friends in the US, I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!  I know that can certainly come with lots of parties with too much food and drink.  I definitely ate a bit more than normal, but it happens and it’s ok as long as you get back on track...

Year Of The Beast

I meant to post this earlier but got caught up with all the holiday fun over the weekend.  One thing that I am SUPER pumped about is a new group I just joined called Year Of The Beast, or YOTB as we refer to it. So what is it? It’s a group of dedicated guys and gals who are...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! I hope the last couple weeks have been going well for you!  It’s nice that summer is finally here, I know many of you are taking advantage of warmer weather to workout outside which is great.  We’ve been trying to get outside as much as we can on our bikes or just...

Summit Update Part 1

Every year Beachbody puts on their Coach Summit.  It’s a weekend to gather Coaches from around the nation to inspire them to keep doing their part to end the trend of obesity, build relationships and introduce new things coming from Team Beachbody!  Unfortunately I was not able to...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team! Now that we’re back from our 10 day excursion to Peru, I wanted to send another check-in to see how everyone is doing!  We had a blast on our trip and took advantage of the time to experience a new culture and unplug from the busyness of our daily lives.  It was a much...

Weekend Update

Hey team! You may have been wondering where the check-in was on Wednesday, but don’t fear, I was planning on a weekend update this time 🙂  I know for many people, including myself, weekends can be an incredibly tough time to stay on track with your fitness and nutrition plans....

Happy Memorial Day

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have served our country or have family members that have, and especially to those who have lost a loved on in the line of duty.  It’s an unbelievable gift to live in a country with as much freedom as we have, but I know that comes...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  It’s already the middle of May and it feels like summer is right around the corner.  It’s not quite warm enough to go to the beach, but it feels like that’s coming up soon!  I really like getting...

Non Scale Victories

Ever get frustrated by what the scale is saying?  I know I have.  You put in a lot of hard work, feel like you’re eating well, but the scale won’t budge.  I think that can be a fairly common occurrence, and unfortunately, it can be very discouraging and lead to people...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! I hope May is starting off well for you!  I might be a little biased since my birthday was on the 3rd, but I think May is the absolute best month of the year!  It’s finally warm enough to not wear a coat outside and we can get back into summer activities....
