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...

My Year in Review

A year ago, I was in the worst shape of my life.  I wasn’t working out consistently and my diet was poor.  I had just stepped on a scale to see the highest number I had ever seen, 217 lbs.  I knew I wasn’t in great shape, but I didn’t know that I was at my heaviest...

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...

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...

Switching Coaches

When you sign up for a teambeachbody.com account, unless you’re signing up through a coach you already know, you’re going to be assigned randomly to a coach.  But I hear all too often that someone’s coach has never reached out to them or tried to help them in any way,...

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...

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...

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...
