Where is Beachbody going to take you? It helped Hope Solo earn a Gold!

I love how Beachbody covers the whole spectrum.  Not only does it cover fitness but also nutrition and now skin care as well!  It isn't a company focused solely on athletes as some assume when they hear about P90X, but on fighting the war on obesity and helping everyone!

Beachbody has programs for all levels.
Tony and the Kids, and Shaun T and the Kids for children.
Tai Cheng, Slim in 6, Power 90, Brazil Butt Lift, Body Gospel, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs, Rockin' Body, KSPY2, Total Body Solution, Yoga Booty Ballet for beginner/intermediate level workouts.

LES MILLS PUMP, 10 minute trainer, RevAbs, ChaLEAN Extreme for an intermediate/advanced workout.

P90X, P90X2, Insanity, Insanity Asylum, TurboFire, P90X One on On, the Body Beast for an advanced workout.

If you have tried many workouts and can't shed that stubborn belly roll or you can't get past a plateau, maybe you should look into the Ultimate Reset and recalibrate from the inside out. 21 days will have you down an average of 8 pounds with lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels and a whole new outlook on what you should be putting on the table for your family at each meal!

How about Shakeology?  We now have 4 flavors of the Healthiest Meal of the Day.  Beachbody doesn't throw this phrase around lightly.  A lot of research, travel and knowledge goes into the ingredients in Shakeology - take a look here at where the ingredients come from, and what the Doctors are saying.  Choose from Chocolate, Greenberry, Vegan Tropical Strawberry and Vegan Chocolate.  Find out a little more how Shakeology can work for you.

Beachbody has nutrition products ranging from vitamins to pre workout formulations, post workout formulations, muscle building products and slimming products.  What do you need help with?  I can help you find what can help you!

Plus our new skincare line Derm Exclusive.  I have been using this for a few months now and no longer use abrasive scrubs on my face and I cut out my under eye cream.  The set includes all of the tools I need, my skin is smoother, my fine wrinkles have decreased and I am wearing less makeup than I have in years!

Beachbody Club membership offers a full meal planning tools,VIP chats with trainers and more PLUS 10% off all of your products.

The support you receive while you work through your program with Beachbody is offered through online tools on the Beachbody site but most importantly through your coach.  As a coach I am a graduate of some of the Beachbody programs, I use the products and love them so I have signed on to represent Beachbody and help End the Trend of Obesity!  I get paid to get fit and to help others do the same. Learn a little more about who our coaches are.

You hear people talking about programs like P90X all the time.  How sore they are, how they couldn't finish it or about what amazing results they are achieving... which one are you going to be?

What holds you back?

Have you ever used the phrase,

"I can't do that, I am only a ____/ just a _____" (fill in the blank). 
How about,

"I am too busy, I don't have enough time". 
Or,

"I don't think I could do that, I have never tried before".






You are ONLY what you limit yourself to be.  Think back to when you were young and you wanted to be a doctor, a ballerina, an astronaut... Did you become one?  If you did congratulations, if not, what stopped you?  Did someone tell you that it wasn't possible?  Did you realize it was going to take too much work to get there?  Did you not think you could do it?

It might be too late to become a ballerina or an astronaut but it is not too late to change direction in life towards something that you have a passion for.  Set some goals, make a plan and take steps to get there... ANYTHING is POSSIBLE if you SET YOUR MIND to it!!! 

Too busy?  We all have the same number of hours in a day, it is just how you use them.  Sit down with a calendar and work out the things that are necessities like sleeping, eating, working, looking after and spending time with your children, etc.  Then calculate what is left... I'm betting it is more than you expected.  What do you want to do with that time?  Figure it out and schedule it in!  If you don't have a calendar then GET ONE!  Scheduling your days in the calendar may seem like a lot of work but it will actually end up saving you time and making sure you don't forget important events!  (side note: there ARE truly people that don't have enough hours in the day and are scheduled and efficient... if this is you think about prioritizing your "to do's" and cutting out what ISN'T important)

You can never succeed if never give it a chance.  Even more, you can try and fail but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try again.  Failure is part of learning.  It teaches us what NOT to do next time.  The definition of Insanity is "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."  Go out and learn something new, take the challenge and see what happens.  If you fall down, brush yourself off and try again!

So, what IS holding you back?  Have you looked in the mirror?  Whether it is fitness, nutrition, career, volunteer work, adventure, family, relationships, whatever, you need to realize that your opportunities are limitless.  Remember your dreams, make new dreams, make a plan of attack and then figure out how to get it accomplished!  You can be your biggest roadblock but you can also light your own fire to push forward... which will it be?


With every step you take, decision you make, or road block you set, you are a mentor.  Remember that when you limit yourself and equally when you push yourself a little bit harder.  Your child, your friend, you sister, your nephew... they are all watching and learning.  Show them what is important!

There is a P90X buzz in the air!

Wow!  Since Mitt Romney announced the name Paul Ryan there has been quite a buzz... and I am not talking just about whether it is good or bad choice for his presidential campaign.  There has been quite a buzz about what Paul Ryan does to stay in such great shape!  Have you missed the news?  At the end of my blog you will find MANY links to check out more about these stories!

P90X is a phenomenal program but it is definitely not for everyone. You might want to check out "Not Ready for P90X: where should I start" , or since that article Les Mills PUMP and Tai Cheng have been released!  Combine a great program with Shakeology and my support and you will be on track to better health and a fitter body!
