Creating Habits

We all have habits, whether good or bad.  Some people are more habitual than others, but to an extent most people have a general routine, a set of activities they do every day, or will have a common reaction to different situations.  Take a minute to think about your day today.  Which...

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...

Rochelle’s ChaLEA...

When I started thinking about doing ChaLEAN Extreme this winter, I was a gym member struggling to make time during the week to get to the gym for a good workout. I had been fairly consistent, mostly doing cardio, but NEVER weights. It’s easy for women to be intimidated of weights at...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

Calorie Tracking Resour...

I know I say it a lot, but I really believe tracking what you eat every day is crucial to getting great results.  When I read the message boards and see that people are frustrated with not seeing good results, often times they are not tracking their calories.  Sometimes they mention...

Asylum Review

After completing Insanity and then P90X, I was eager to jump at the chance to be one of the first people to tackle Asylum.  My coach actually put together a competition with another team to see who would get the best results from this 30 day program.  Asylum focuses on sports...

Healthy Snack Options

Snacking is important, but can often be the culprit for ruining people’s diets.  It’s the time between meals when you get hungry and those salty and sweet foods look so tempting.  It’s easy to grab a bag of chips to “just have a few” when that turns into...

Be Prepared

It seems a lot easier to stick to any workout program or nutrition plan when you’re on your regular schedule, but often times workouts don’t happen or any sort of nutrition plan goes out the window when a special event happens.  And it can take 2-3 days to make up for one bad...

Your “Why”

Finding the motivation to stick with the workouts and nutrition plans can be tough at times.  I am definitely not immune to this.  There are days when you get tired, you’re busy, or you just don’t feel like working out.  Or maybe some of the moves in particular workouts are...

Who is Beachbody?

Most people I talk to have heard about P90X or maybe Insanity, but most times they haven’t heard of Beachbody, the company that makes the workout videos along with workout equipment and supplements like protein powder, multi-vitamins, and Shakeology.  Carl Daikler is the awesome...

SMART Goals

One thing I’m passionate is setting and reaching goals, especially when it comes to fitness and your health.  I think many people like to start off with a goal too, but having often times their goals are not specific enough or aren’t really measurable.  I really believe...
