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...

30 Day Clean Eating Cha...

I wanted to put together another  30 Day Clean Eating Challenge for our team since the last one was so successful.  If you’ve been struggling to stick with your nutrition plan, if you’ve fallen completely off the wagon, or just want some accountability to keep doing what you’re...

Ultimate Reset – ...

There are tons of cleanses and detoxes out there claiming to help you lose weight.  But how many of them have actually gone through a clinical study?  I sure haven’t heard of many.  That’s why I think it’s pretty cool that the New York College of Chiropractice...

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...

Shakeology Trial Pack

This is something totally new for me, but I’m excited to see how it goes.  One thing I’ve noticed when it comes to Shakeology is that people can be a little wary of spending $130 when they’re not really sure they like something.  There is always the 30 day money back...

Feeling Sick?

As you eat healthier and workout more, one huge benefit you’ll notice is that you get sick less.  Fewer colds, less indigestion, etc.  Your immune system is strengthened when you’re feeding your body what it needs and you’re better able to fight off things that might...

Shakeology Price Change...

sFor the last 4 years Shakeology has stayed constant as far as price goes.  The whey protein formulas, Original Chocolate and Greenberry, have been $119 for that long.  So inevitably there was going to be a Shakeology price change.  So I just want to make it clear as to what the change...

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...

Video: Supplements I Us...

I get questions about supplements quite a bit.  So I decided to shoot a video and show you exactly what I use for myself.  So check it out!

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...

Starting P90X?

Have you been trying to get healthy and lose some weight but it’s just not working?  I hate seeing people get frustrated when they start a program but don’t see the results they want, so I wanted to write up some tips to help you if you’re starting P90X. If you’re...

Listen To Your Body!

As I’ve learned more about how your body operates and how my body responds to different foods, workouts, etc I’ve found that your body can really tell you quite a bit if you’re listening.  I think naturally our bodies crave healthy, nutritious foods.  Your body wants...

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....

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! Sorry I missed last week’s check-in, I was out of town for work and had a super packed schedule so I didn’t get a chance to send it out.  But I’m back this week and not quite as busy!  Last week was my last recovery week and now I’ve started a...

P90X Round 1 Nutrition

I get nutrition questions all the time from people starting out on programs like P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire, etc.  And that’s totally understandable, because if you’re just starting out and trying to digest the P90X Nutrition guide it can be a little confusing.  What...

Chris Crushes P90/P90X

Chris is someone who I really respect and has had amazing results with Beachbody workout programs like Power 90 and P90X.  I think you’ll agree that he has one of the best transformations out there!  He is also a fellow Beachbody Coach and is helping other people get healthy and...

Tropical Shakeology Ava...

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  Beachbody’s way of celebrating is to release the newest flavor of Shakeology, so Tropical Shakeology is available now!  If you missed my post earlier this week about what makes the new flavor great, check out my article: Tropical Shakeology...

Tropical Shakeology Ing...

I’ve posted a few times about the release of Tropical Shakeology, which is now available.  I get questions around what the difference is from Chocolate and Greenberry, so I wanted to focus on the Tropical Shakeology Ingredients.  Tropical Shakeology is going to be a vegan formula,...

What Supplements do I n...

I often get questions around supplements.  Why should I use supplements?  What supplements do I need?  What supplements do you use?  All of those are very common questions.  And it’s very understandable because there are a ton of supplements out there and it can be pretty...

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...

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...

Sample Vegan Diet

I get tons of questions from people when I tell them or they find out that I follow a vegan diet.  A common question is around the specific foods I eat, and that’s what I want to address here.  I’m still working on another post that will be my review of my experience with...

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...

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...

90 Day Challenge

I’ve alluded to this in a couple posts recently, and I wanted to officially give you all the details on a 90 Day Challenge I want to start with our team.  I want to do this because I’ve been involved in challenges before and I absolutely love them!  It is incredibly...

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...

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...

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...

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...
