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...

Still With Us?

Do you ever fall off the bandwagon with your workouts or nutrition?  It’s mid way through March right now and I know many people have lost their drive they had at the beginning of 2013.  You might have been totally pumped up and ready to go at the beginning of the year, looking to...

Do You Need A Coach?

I know it’s a common question, “Do I need a Beachbody Coach?”  And with most questions, it’s not always super straight forward.  If you’re an incredibly self-motivated go-getter, then no, you might not need a Beachbody Coach.  But what’ I’ve...

Bobby Gets Ripped

Bobby is another fellow Coach who has had absolutely phenomenal results.  I feel like I say it a lot, but he’s had some of the best results as far as losing body fat that I’ve seen.  His video tells more about his Asylum transformation, he really saw some big changes in just...

Brian Gets Shredded

Brian is a fellow coach and really has an inspiring story.  After being medically disqualified to fly aircraft in the military he started gaining weight steadily in his new civilian work.  He was eating out all the time and always making excuses for why he couldn’t work out....

Losing Motivation to Wo...

It’s almost the end of January, so I thought this was a timely post.  New Year’s resolutions are 30 days old now, and for many people who have resolved to get in better shape, they are losing motivation to workout.  It sounded nice at the beginning of the year and they had...

Weekly Check-In

Because I know some people’s spam filters pick up my weekly check-in, I’ve decided to also post it to our website just to make sure everyone gets it!  So with that said, here is my check-in for this week! Hey Team New Body! Happy Wednesday once again!  I hope all of your...

Gimmicks

We’ve all seen the infomercials for things like the shake weight, ab toning bands, etc.  They all promise that if you just use them for 6 minutes a day you’ll get ripped like the people on the screen.  They’ll even show you the scientific research showing you how if...

Is Shakeology too Expen...

When it comes to Shakeology there are typically two kinds of people. People are either skeptical and think it’s too expensive or they’ve given it a try and know that it’s worth the money.  Now obviously there are exceptions to this, but I find this to be true in most...

Your Attitude Matters!

How do you react when things are tough or don’t go your way?  When people question what you’re doing does it fuel you or discourage you?  Do you assume you’re going to reach your goals or do you not really think you’ll ever get there?  Why am I asking all those...

Why I’m a Team Be...

I get questions from time to time from friends and family about why I’m a Team Beachbody coach.  They might think I’m a little crazy about my workouts and nutrition (which might be true!), but they don’t fully understand the coaching aspect all the time.  So I wanted...

P90X2 Equipment

If you’ve been following the development of P90X2 or have any of the Tony Horton 1-on-1 workouts from Volume 3, you’ve probably noticed that there is going to be some extra equipment used in P90X2.  But if the extra equipment isn’t in your budget or you don’t have...

Bulking Pt. 2 (for wome...

I find that women often have the exact opposite concern than the guys do when it comes to bulking up.  I’ve heard it a ton, and you might even be thinking it yourself, “I don’t want to lift weights because I don’t want to look like a man.”  Often times...

Bulking Up Pt. 1 (for g...

I know there are lots of guys out there who are looking to bulk up and often find it frustrating trying to add muscle mass.  And there are some people who think you can’t do it with P90X or other Beachbody workouts.  So I figured I would write about how you can add lean muscle...

Getting Enough Zzzzzz&#...

I’m writing this post to myself just as much as everyone else out there.  I am definitely guilty of not getting as much sleep as I should.  But it’s incredibly important to get your sleep because your body needs rest!  Especially if you’re doing an intense workout...

New Beachbody Challenge

Want to get paid for working out?  The new Beachbody Challenge is a great way to do just that and can serve as motivation for the workouts!  It’s basically a competition to reward the people who really commit to living a healthier lifestyle and achieve great results.  The top...

6-pack Abs

I think we’ve all seen plenty of infomercials for products promising to give you the 6-pack that you’ve always wanted.  Usually all you have to do is put this big strap around your stomach and in no time you’ll look like the people on the screen.  They even show you...

Which Version of P90X?

When you’re just starting P90X, you might be wondering which version of P90X to do.  The program outlines 3 different versions and schedules that you can follow: Classic, Lean, and Doubles.  So which should you choose?  In my opinion, 95% of the time, people should be following...

Protein Basics

When doing intense workouts like P90X or Insanity, it is extremely important to make sure you’re fueling your body with enough protein so that your muscles can repair and grow.  But it can be confusing as to how much protein you really need and where you should get it from.  I see...

Hate Making Lunch?

I feel like this is an issue that almost all working adults can relate to.  Who doesn’t hate making lunch?  You’re busy enough with your work, family life, kids activities, sports, etc. that it can seem like a big burden to make your own lunch either the night before or in...

Getting Started

When you’ve decided to make a change and get back in shape, lose some weight, or build some muscle, I think a difficult thing can be knowing where to get started.  What equipment do you need?  What should you be eating?  How often should you eat?  What supplements should you...

Presidential Active Lif...

I just got some news from Beachbody today that’s pretty exciting!  Starting today officially, Beachbody has been recognized as an advocate for the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA)!  You may be wondering exactly what that is, so I went to the PALA website,...

Team New Body on Facebo...

Having a motivating and encouraging team can play a huge factor in keeping up with your workouts and nutrition, so I thought it was about time for Team New Body to get on Facebook!  I created our very own Facebook page so that it’s easier for you all to post questions and bounce...

Dealing with Injuries

Getting injured is never fun, but it does happen from time to time.  It’s incredibly important to not skip the warm-up and stretch to each workout to each workout, and during the workout you need to attempt to keep good form even when you’re super tired.  Doing those two...

4th of July weekend

First off, I just wanted to say happy 4th of July to all the Americans on our team!  I personally love the 4th of July because I always get to spend it with extended family which is a blast.  But one incredibly tough thing is trying to stick to a diet or nutrition plan when...

P90X vs. The Gym

    After many years of working out at the gym and now having experience with Beachbody workouts like P90X and Insanity, I thought it would be good to let you know why I prefer P90X to working out at the gym.  As a disclaimer, I am by no means saying you can’t get in...

P90X2

In case you haven’t heard about it yet, P90X2 has already been filmed and is scheduled to be released this fall.  There aren’t a ton of details out about it yet, but it’s going to be 14 discs total with all new workouts.  I know Tony and the other creators have been...

Summit Updates

There were so many great things to come out of the Coach Summit conference this year that I wanted to break down the news into a couple of posts.  There are some really great opportunities coming and some are already here, so I wanted to make sure you were all aware of them! The first...

Black Bean, Avocado, Ch...

I wanted to begin to add some recipes for some common meals that I eat that I think are not only very healthy, but really tasty too!  So here is my recipe for black bean, avocado, chicken salad: Ingredients: -2 cups of baby spinach -1/4 cup of black beans -1/2 cubed avocado -6 oz. of...

Round 2 Hybrid

So now that I’ve completed Insanity, P90X, and Asylum as stand alone programs, I’ve decided that for my next round I want to incorporate what I see as the best workouts from each program to make my Round 2 Hybrid.  I think all of the programs are great, but they all have...

Best Time to Workout

A common question that I hear a lot is around when you should workout.  Should you workout in the morning?  Should you workout at night?  Should you workout on an empty stomach or after a meal?  These are all really good questions, and I really don’t think there is any hard and...

Intro to Beachbody Coac...

When I got started working out with Beachbody programs, I didn’t even know what a coach was.  I really didn’t even know who Beachbody was.  I knew about P90X, then saw an infomercial for Insanity and decided to start with that to get in shape.  I really had no concept of...
