Bobby Gets Ripped

Bobby is another fellow Coach who has had absolutely phenomenal results.  I feel like I say it a lot, but he’s had some of the best results as far as losing body fat that I’ve seen.  His video tells more about his Asylum transformation, he really saw some big changes in just...

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! Hard to believe it’s already Wednesday again!  This week I’ve started the last half of my Strength phase of P90X2, which means I’m incorporating some new workouts which is really fun!  I did V-Sculpt on Monday and am definitely still feeling it....

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...

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...

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...

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...

Supplements I use

I often get questions around supplements, so I figured I would just write an article about the supplements I use that I think are very effective.  There are a couple things to consider when thinking about supplements.  The first is the question of if you really need them or not.  To...

Obesity in America

We’ve all heard that America is an obese nation, but do you really know how bad it is or what obesity can really lead to and how much it’s costing America??  The trend is shocking and the implications are very frightening.  This has been a huge motivation for me to be a...

My P90X Results

So far, P90X is my favorite program because it’s got great cardio and great lifting routines all in one program.  Plus the diet guide is very robust and super helpful!  These are my (almost) 90 day results.  I had to cut it 2 weeks short because I’m involved in the...

My P90X Review

In my opinion, out of all the programs that Beachbody puts out there, P90X is the best all-around program.  I really love P90X!!  I’m just about to finish my first round and it has helped me lost my last 10 lbs. to get to my goal weight of 190 lbs.  I already lost 17 lbs. doing...

Secret to Success

What’s the secret to success?  What will allow you to really see the results you are looking for?  Well I can’t take credit for this, but I think Albert E.N. Gray has some extremely insightful words that apply to getting in shape as much as they did to the life insurance...
