Find Something You Like

The number one topic I get questions on or see people struggle with is motivation.  “How can I stay motivated to workout?”  “How do you stick with your plan so well?”  “I wish I was as motivated as you.”  These are all pretty common things I hear....

Tony Horton Fitness ...

I’m obviously a huge fan of Tony Horton.  I have completed P90X and P90X2 a number of times, and just about have my first round of P90X3 under my belt.  His workouts are great and just plain work.  I’ve noticed on his YouTube channel that he’s been posting quite a few...

October Beachbody Deals

Team Beachbody likes to keep things fresh and offer a new discounts every month.  I think it’s an awesome way to get people excited about certain programs and save a little cash when they order.  The October Beachbody Deals are strategic I think.  In case you missed it, P90X3 is...

It’s a Marathon N...

I see this time and time again, especially when people are new to a workout program.  Two things can be very detrimental to their motivation.  First, they want to see results right now.  Someone starts doing Insanity for a week and thinks they should have lost 10 lbs already.  If that...

Pete Rocks P90X!

I am really excited to show off one of Team New Body’s best transformations.  Pete decided to start P90X and quit smoking at the same time!  Talk about turning your health around!  It has been incredibly fun to chat with him as he’s gone through the program and to see him...

P90X Body Beast Hybrid ...

This past week I finally finished up my P90X Body Beast hybrid, so I wanted to share my results from the hybrid and also my thoughts on how it’s laid out.  I really had a lot of fun with this schedule and I think the programs complement each other pretty well, so it was a pretty...

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...

What You Need For P90X ...

When you’re just getting started out or thinking about doing P90X, you’re probably wondering what you need for P90X from an equipment standpoint.  Do you need a bunch of fancy stuff or is there a more basic setup?  Weights, pull-up bars, etc can add up quickly, so I wanted...

Working Out On The Road

One big obstacle that people can come up against is working out on the road and sticking to their nutrition while traveling.  It’s a lot easier when you’re at home on your normal schedule.  But when you’re out of your element does your fitness have to get thrown out...

Fat Shredder Diet

I’ve posted this meal plan before, but I wanted to post it here again.  It’s my 1900 calorie fat shredder diet.  When I first started my fitness journey I was doing Insanity.  My first month I worked out hard, but didn’t follow any nutrition plan.  That led to zero...

Biggest Loser Syndrome

What in the world is Biggest Loser Syndrome?  I know, sounds weird, right?  It will make sense, I promise.  This is something I’ve noticed pretty frequently as I’ve talked with people about getting in shape and with the new season of The Biggest Loser starting on Sunday,...

How Many Calories Do I ...

How many calories do I need?  This is a common question that I hear all the time.  That’s what I love about Beachbody workouts.  they actually give you a nutrition guide that tells you how many calories you need.  The nutrition plans that come with workouts like P90X are...

Noel’s P90X Trans...

Noel is a fellow coach and has a story that I’m sure some of you can relate to.  He was active in sports when he was younger, but through college and a busy family and work life, health and exercise just never seemed to make the top of the priority list.  He was very busy, getting...

Be Honest

One of my favorite motivational quotes has to be, “Don’t be upset with the results you didn’t get from the work you didn’t put in.”  Basically saying don’t expect great results if you’re not willing to put the work in.  I think this is an issue...

Terry Gets Ripped!

Terry is another fellow coach who has absolutely crushed P90X and P90X2.  He has one of the better transformations out there that I’ve seen and has really re-claimed his health.  He’s been very successful with P90X, P90X2 and Shakeology so I wanted to share his great results...

Jason Turns Things Arou...

Jason is probably like many lawyers out there, spending lots of time studying in law school and at the office working long days.  Add to that being a new dad and he just wasn’t taking time to make his health a priority.  After spending thousands on the gym with no results, Jason...

Chris’ P90X and P...

Chris, another fellow coach, has a story that many people can relate to.  He was doing P90X, but he wasn’t committing to the nutrition. He would “eat healthy” during the week, but would let things go on the weekend.  He wasn’t getting the results he wanted and it...

What To Do For Sore Mus...

For those of you just starting a workout program I’m guessing you’re dealing with muscle soreness and I’m guessing it’s pretty bad. I know I was extremely sore during my first week of both Insanity and P90X. With Insanity my legs were killing me and with P90X my...

Barry Burns the Goo

Today’s transformation comes from Barry.  He is a fellow coach and has really seen some awesome results.  When he moved, started a new job that required a lot of  traveling and stopped eating right or working out he quickly put on some weight.  He saw some pictures of himself...

Modifying Push-Ups and ...

Most people when they are just getting started out with P90X can’t do a ton of pull-ups or might not be able to do that many push-ups.  But that’s why you’re doing the program, right?  If you could do a ton of pull-ups and push-ups you probably wouldn’t be...

Workout Programs For At...

Functional fitness seems to be very popular in the fitness world today.  More and more people don’t just want to lose weight, they want to perform better in their every day life or a sport they’re involved with.  What they’re really looking for are workout programs for...

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....

Workout Programs That W...

When people are looking for the right workout program, they often want to lose weight.  So instead of doing resistance training, they look for a cardio based program.  While cardio can help, building lean muscle is really the key to shaping your body and losing weight.  When you build...

The Dr. Gets His Health...

John is a fellow coach and has an awesome story.  He’s a surgeon, and like many other people in the medical field, he spent a ton of time helping other people get better but didn’t take time for himself.  He had been letting his busy life get in the way as an excuse to not...

Weekly Check-In

Hey Team New Body! Wow this last week has gone fast!  But they always seem to fly by.  I’m not a week and a half into my next round, and so far I really like my P90X P90X2 Hybrid.  I always like to do programs by themselves and know many of you are the same way, so if...

Don’s No Excuse P...

Don is a fellow coach and has seen some amazing results with P90X!  Even though his first attempt didn’t go as planned he didn’t let that stop him.  He re-committed himself along with a group of other like-minded people and just crushed his first complete round of P90X!...

Next Round Goals

It’s been two weeks since I finished up P90X2, if you missed it, here are my P90X2 Results.  I was very happy with my results and really loved the program.  And if you’ve been keeping track, my plan for my next round is to do a P90X P90X2 Hybrid.  I was originally only...

Gaining Momentum

You hear about it from sports announcers all the time.  They talk about the team “with the momentum” having an advantage over the other team.  It’s not tangible, but it definitely gives them a leg up.  And I think that’s very true for those of us doing Beachbody...

P90X P90X2 Hybrid

With my first round of P90X2 nearly under my belt, I figured it was time to start planning ahead and figure out what I wanted my next round to look like.  So I decided to create my own P90X P90X2 hybrid schedule.  I was torn between doing another round of P90X2 or a full round of P90X,...

Darren Kills It!

I want to keep showing you all some real results from real people, and here is another success story that I think you’ll find motivating!  Darren is an active duty Marine (thank you for your service!) and had always struggled with his weight.  That is until he found P90X and...

P3 Training in P90X2

Clearly a lot of time and research has gone into making P90X2 an elite workout program.  One thing I’m particularly excited about is the P3 training in P90X2.  Dr. Marcus Elliot is the originator of P3 training, and if you check out their website, you can see that what he’s...

Benefits of Foam Rollin...

Thanks to P90X2, I have recently been introduced to foam rolling.  It’s something I had heard a little bit about, but never something I had really looked into or tried myself.  Honestly, it seemed a little odd to me at first, but I was hearing good things from others, and since...

Updated Transformation ...

I originally had created a transformation video about 6 months ago, so it was definitely time for an update.  This updated transformation video reviews my whole year with Beachbody.  It’s really fun to look back and see how far I’ve come in only a year.  I’ve spent...

P90X Insanity Hybrid

People often ask me if they should do P90X or Insanity, especially when they’re just starting out.  Depending on what your goals are and what you have available to you as far as space and equipment, P90X or Insanity might be a better fit.  But in my opinion, a P90X Insanity hybrid...

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...

Track Your Progress

If you read my posts you know I strongly encourage everyone to make goals, and write them down.  I think that’s very important to you seeing success.  If you don’t know what you want to accomplish, how will you ever know if you’re successful?  You won’t know,...

P90X2 – Week 1

When I tell people I’m doing P90X2, the most common question I get is, how is it different from P90X?  I can’t fully explain that yet, because I’m only 1 week into it, but I’ve done all of the Phase 1 workouts so I can give you my review of the Foundation phase at...

Enter the Beachbody Cha...

I’ve posted about this recently, but again, I wanted to officially give you all the details on the Beachbody Challenge.  This is something everyone should enter!  Why?  Because it’s FREE and you could win up to $100,000 just for working out!  There are also $500 daily...

My P90X2 Plan

I will be starting my P90X2 journey this coming Monday, which I am very excited about!  I have been waiting for this for a few months now, and the fact that I have the program but haven’t started yet it just about killing me!  For those of you starting this out with us in our...

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...

Les Mills Pump

Les Mills Pump is a new Beachbody workout program coming out sometime later this month which sounds like an awesome program!  This might be familiar to some of you, as there have been Body Pump workouts being offered at local gyms for quite some time.  And now, it will be offered...

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...

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...

Glycemic Index

You might be thinking, what the heck is a glycemic index?  Before I became very passionate about health and fitness, I would have had the same thought.  But don’t worry, I’ll try not to get too technical.  And to give you a good resource, check out...

Ditch the Scale!

You’ve been working hard for 2 weeks, but you still haven’t lost a pound, or worse, you’ve actually gained weight!  Does that sound familiar?  I see it all the time on the message boards.  People get discouraged or think that programs like P90X or Insanity don’t...

P90X vs. P90X2

So what’s the difference between P90X and P90X2?  Is P90X2 just longer and harder?  Or are there different types of workouts?  These are all very common questions that I hear, so I thought I’d have the man himself, Tony Horton, explain it for you: If you have questions...

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...
