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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
