Coach Tom Checking In!

Hi Team New Body!

I realize it’s been two weeks since you heard from me, sorry about that!  I was out of town for work again, not having room for my personal computer.  But I’m glad to be back and hope you’re all still doing great!  I do have to admit, traveling for me can be very tough on the workouts and nutrition.  It’s one area I struggle with for sure.  I just started Body Beast with a few people on our team, and that’s not exactly a program that lends itself to traveling.  There was a hotel gym, but I had to modify a lot.  Nutrition is always tough for me on the road as well, as I’m eating out for every meal.  But the good news is that I’m back and hitting things hard to start this week off!  How do you handle your fitness and nutrition when you’re on the road?

The success tip this week hits home after not having my best week ever: Success is not measured by how many times you fall down, it’s measured by how many times you get back up.  When you’re going after a goal, you’re going to fail.  It’s inevitable.  Have you ever had a setback in your fitness journey?  Ever miss a week?  Ever have too many cheat meals?  Of course these things happen!  But the people I know who have had the most success are those who acknowledge that they’ve come short but use that as an opportunity to learn and improve on things next time.  Don’t get discouraged if you have a setback or fail in some area, that’s ok and it’s actually a good thing!  It makes you stronger and more resilient because you can learn a ton from that situation.

If you want some extra motivation, check out the video I posted for this week’s Monday Motivation.  This week I have a couple posts lined up and in the works.  One of which is a review of T25’s Gamma Phase.  To me it feels like a much different phase than Alpha & Beta.  So you’ll get my thoughts on that.

Just a reminder, as we are about half-way through October, that Team Beachbody is offering some insane deals on P90X and P90X2 this month!  If you have been wanting to give either P90X or P90X2 a try, this is a great opportunity to save some money!  You really won’t find a better deal elsewhere.

I would love to hear from you this week!  Let me know how your workouts are going.  Let me know how your nutrition has been.  I’m here to support you and I always enjoy getting updates or questions from you all!

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and video, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Stumbleupon, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow Team New Body!
2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site,, or by logging in to to do your shopping (If you buy from the plain beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!
