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...

22 Minute Hard Corps

Tony is at it again with a pretty cool new workout!  If you follow him at all, you know he does a lot of work with our military and visits different bases around the world quite often.  The workouts he puts our military through are intense, and he wanted to bring that to all of us!  So...

How Many Calories Does ...

I see the question on message boards, in Facebook groups and elsewhere – “How many calories does Hammer & Chisel burn?”  It’s a great question, because how many calories your workout burns can make a difference in your nutrition plan.  If you’re...

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...

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...

Order Hammer & Chi...

Today is the day!  Sagi & Autumn’s new program, The Master’s Hammer & Chisel is officially released!  I am pumped to take a shot at this workout because I’ve really enjoyed Body Beast and the 21 Day Fix.  So I’m excited to see how they work together to...

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...

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...

CIZE is Here!

I know many of you Shaun T fans have been waiting a while for this.  Well today is the day, CIZE is now available!  For those of you who don’t know, CIZE is a workout program that’s centered around getting you moving through dance.  You learn dance moves from Shaun T and...

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...

Insanity Max 30 Initial...

For the last 9 months I’ve mainly been focusing on putting on muscle and getting stronger.  That means I haven’t exactly done a ton of cardio.  But now that I’m focused on losing a bit of fat I need to cut the calories back a bit and add in more cardio.  That’s...

How Many Calories Does ...

I realized that my article, How Many Calories Does P90X3 Burn?, is getting pretty popular, so that must mean people are looking for that kind of info.  I know it helps me to know how many calories other people burn in certain workouts so that I can compare the numbers that I see.  Plus,...

21 Day Fix Extreme

For you 21 Day Fix Fans, Autumn has done it again and stepped it up a notch.  She just released the 21 Day Fix Extreme today and has a lot of people excited about that.  Her goal with this program is to help people take their fitness to the next level.  The cool part is that she also...

Beachbody On Demand

This has been a long time in the making and people have been asking about this for years!  When will we be able to stream Beachbody workouts??  Well the answer is VERY SOON!  Beachbody On Demand is very close to being a reality.  This is going to be a huge win for people who travel a...

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...

Order Insanity Max 30

The day is finally here!  I’ve seen test group results and the previews looks awesome.  All you Shaun T fans can finally get your hands on his new program and order Insanity Max 30. I love how this program is designed, and think these are some reasons why many people will order...

Order P90!

P90 is here!  If you’ve been waiting for a refresh of the original Power 90, then the wait is over.  This is going to be an amazing program for those of you not quite ready to tackle an extreme program like P90X or Insanity, but will provide enough challenge to help you get...

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...

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...

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...

How Many Calories Does ...

I get this question from people on our team and see it on message boards all the time, “How many calories does P90X3 burn?“.  This comes up a lot when people start looking at their nutrition and need to know how their workouts affect the number of calories they need to eat....

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...

PiYo Workout Program!

Attention all Chalene Johnson fans!!!  Her PiYo workout program is going to be released in less than one week!  I for one am pumped that she’s releasing this workout.  I know she’s been doing PiYo for a long time, but she finally made a program for you to do at home. I...

Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team! I hope this week is treating you well!  It feels like many people on our team are really hitting their stride which is fun to see!  I love that our team motivates and supports each other.  If you feel like you’re missing out a bit, don’t forget to...

Spot Training

Do you have a “trouble area”?  A particular part of your body that seems like it just won’t or can’t burn fat?  Most people that I talk to have an area like this.  For some people it’s their lower belly, their hips, their legs.  For me it’s...

P90X-X2-X3 Hybrid

I am a huge fan of hybrid workouts.  If you’re unfamiliar with what a hybrid is, check out this post: Creating a Hybrid.  I think it’s a great way to combine some of your favorite workouts into an entirely new workout that might challenge you in a different way.  I’ve...

Track Your Progress

One of my favorite Tony Horton quotes, “How do you know what to do, if you don’t know what you did?”  He says it in both P90X & P90X3.  He’s talking about tracking your progress.  At the time he’s encouraging you to write down the weight you used, or...

My P90X3 Results &...

Rochelle and I just recently finished up the first 90 days of P90X3, so I wanted to share our P90X3 results and give you my thoughts on the entire program.  I’ve been writing reviews along the way, which get a little more detailed about all the individual workouts.  So you can...

Breaking Plateaus

Hitting a plateau is a very common thing when it comes to a weightloss journey.  For a while you’re doing great, losing lbs and inches and you feel like momentum is on your side.  Then all of a sudden it just stops.  And you can’t really figure out why because you...

Find Something You Like

The number one topic I get questions on or see people struggle with is motivation.  “How can I stay motivated to workout?”  “How do you stick with your plan so well?”  “I wish I was as motivated as you.”  These are all pretty common things I hear....

Summer Slimdown Challen...

With basically 60 days left until Summer, Team Beachbody is doing what it can to help you get ready.  Recently Team Beachbody has been offering different deals every month, and this month is no different.  I think it’s a pretty cool thing they do, and I’m pretty excited...

P90X3 Phase 3 Review

Now that we have less than two weeks left of P90X3 Phase 3 I figured I’d write up my thoughts on this phase, similar like I did for my P90X3 Phase 1 Review and P90X3 Phase 2 Review.  This last month has gone by really fast, but it’s been a ton of fun!  If you’ve been...

Minimalist Shoes

One trend that I’ve seen become pretty popular is barefoot training, or people wearing shoes that are as close to barefoot as you can get.  A lot of people argue that we were meant to run/walk in just our bare feet, so putting shoes on that alter that movement is counterproductive...

Tony Horton Fitness ...

I’m obviously a huge fan of Tony Horton.  I have completed P90X and P90X2 a number of times, and just about have my first round of P90X3 under my belt.  His workouts are great and just plain work.  I’ve noticed on his YouTube channel that he’s been posting quite a few...

Beachbody Discounts in ...

Beachbody’s mission is to help people live healthier and more fulfilling lives, and to help people reach that goal, they have world-class products.  One thing that inevitably can be a barrier for people is the cost of the products.  But thankfully they do run specials every month...

P90X3 Phase 2 Review

We’ve just finished up the 3rd week of P90X3 Phase 2 and I can’t believe this 90 days if flying by so fast!  It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that I wrote my P90X3 Phase 1 Review. We took a short trip to warmer weather over President’s Day, but only ended up...

Age Is Just a Number

Tony says it all the time in P90X3.  One of his favorite lines is, “aging is for idiots.”  He is a great example of how you can look and act young no matter what your age, as he’s in his mid 50’s and has no problem keeping up with the 20 and 30 year olds in the...

Order 21 Day Fix

Ever struggle with portion control?  I know I do and it’s probably one of the biggest food struggles that people have.  Overeating is incredibly prevalent, especially in the US.  Think about going out to eat.  Most meals could feed at least 2 people.  So it’s no wonder...

P90X3 Phase 1 Review

Rochelle and I are about 3/4 the way through Phase 1 of P90X3, so I wanted to write up a bit of a review on how the workouts are going so far.  In case you missed it, we are doing the workouts together!  It’s our first time actually doing an entire workout program together, so...

21 Day Fix Intro

There’s a new Beachbody trainer, Autumn Calabrese, on the scene and there’s a lot of buzz around her new program.  It’s called the 21 Day Fix and the test group had a lot of success.  As the name implies, it’s a 21 day program, so it goes quick.  The workouts...

Top 5 Advantages to Hav...

In three years of doing Beachody workout programs, I’ve always done them by myself.  I had my programs – Insanity, P90X, Body Beast, etc. and Rochelle had her programs – ChaLEAN Extreme and TurboFire.  We would workout at different times and each do our own thing....

New Year’s Resolu...

You can probably guess that the most common new year’s resolution is to lose weight and get in shape.  If you’re a regular at any gym, I’m sure you’re not looking forward to the mass of people that have decided January is a good time to start working out....
