Leah S.’s Wedding Prep; Ultimate Reset Transformation and Review

How many of you think you are eating healthy and getting the correct amount of nutrients in your body each day? I would say most of us either have a sense of what is healthy or have actually spent time researching it! Well before I did the Ultimate Reset I thought I knew what to eat and how much as well, WELL I was wrong- I learnt more about food in the 21 days of the reset then I really ever knew! Pretty Amazing!!! Do you need a TUNE UP?

Meet Leah S. “On January 7th I started my fitness journey–but I was serious this time. I tried a couple of times before and fell off every time. I started insanity, joined a Beachbody group, and finally started listening to all the shakeology freaks (chocolate vegan is my soulmate)!! I finished 60 days straight, only missing 2 days. I lost 10 lbs. this put me at 156.8 down from 166.8, the most I’ve ever weighed!!!  That was college weight! I then started the reset, thinking it would jump start weight loss and get me motivated for wedding weight!! It made me change my ENTIRE outlook on food! I now CRAVE tomatoes, cucumbers, couscous, and quinoa (plus much more)! I lost 7 lbs on the reset, putting me at 149.8 lbs!! I haven’t seen this since freshman year of college!!! I feel amazing, think about food differently, have everyone asking ME of all people how to do it, and I just smile and say, “Beachbody”…I made myself a priority and it paid off!! This is no longer wedding preparation…this is my body, my temple, lets see what all it can accomplish!!!”

What is it?

INSANITY® is a 60-day cardio- based total-body conditioning program that’s the most intense workout ever put on

DVD. Fitness expert Shaun T drew on his collegiate track and field training, plus his subsequent years of experience as an elite trainer, to create a program that takes total-body conditioning to an extreme level.

Just as P90X is the height of resistance training, INSANITY is the pinnacle of cardio training.

 

Why is it effective?

Interval training allows you to beat the “stress adaptation response,” which is what happens when your body gets used to exercising at one level of exertion and stops improving. An interval workout includes a set where you perform at your maximum, followed by one of lower intensity, with the cycle repeated to achieve a cumulative effect.

INSANITY uses MAX Interval Training, which replaces your moderate- intensity exercise with maximum-intensity exercise, and your short intervals of intensity with short periods of rest. Adding high-intensity exercise, during which your heart rate increases to 80 percent or more of its maximum capacity, forces your body to use fast-twitch muscle fibers not normally engaged in cardio exercise. These fast-twitch fibers continue burning extra fuel even during lower-intensity exercise.

INSANITY’s high-intensity activity is likely to have you working out at over 85 percent of your maximum capacity, instead of the lower rate recommended in other programs. As a result, you’ll experience faster increases in fitness and more efficient burning of carbohydrates and fat—as much as 1,000 calories per hour.

What can it do for you?

INSANITY pushes you beyond what you thought was possible with explosive cardio and plyometric drills and nonstop intervals of strength, power, and resistance. Additional ab and core training techniques will help you transform your body in just 60 days.

Traci A’s Beachbody Transformation: Mommy got her body back

Meet Traci A.!!! A mommy who like myself needed and wanted her body back!!! Well it looks like she was VERY DEDICATED!!! She reached her goals =) Are you ready to reach yours?

Up until this past year when I packed on 52 pounds of pregnancy pudge, never in my life have I been overweight, or out of shape. Actually, I was that 6-foot tall athlete who had a killer body and cocky attitude; truly believing that I did not need a workout program to keep me fit because I was genetically gifted.

But once I ballooned to 200 lbs. while prego with my first kid-o, I realized that if I didn’t seek out help to lose the baby weight, I’d end up just like all the other women in my family who got bigger and bigger with each and every kid they had. And there was no way l was going to use their lame excuse of, “I’m a mom, so it’s okay that I’m out of shape.” So I bought INSANITY shortly after giving birth and my abs became visible within three of starting the program!

Almost instantly, the fat started melting away, and I was getting stronger and more ripped than ever. And in 30 short days, I had my abs back—MY PRE-PREGNANCY ABS! I’ve never experienced such fast results before from exercise; not only was I shocked, so were my friends, family, and even South Carolina’s WACH Fox News—who did a story on my incredibly quick post-pregnancy bounce back.

While there were many skeptics who swore up and down that I was lying and had used old pictures for my “AFTER” results, their cruel words didn’t faze me one bit because I knew the truth: I put in the work, I got the results. Now that I’ve completed INSANITY, I’ve since moved on to Brazil Butt Lift so I can sculpt a sexy bum-bum to match my awesome abs!!

Today, I’m a Beachbody Coach and am addicted to helping others reclaim their lives –and that’s why I am going to get my INSANITY certification this summer.

Melissa D.’s Beachbody Transformation

Meet Melissa!!! This is one amazing Woman!!

“Every New Year’s, I would say my New Year’s Resolution was to lose weight. But I never followed through—until this past year. I was a new mother. I was totally overweight. I had no energy, no confidence, and no self-esteem. I had headaches every day. So what would I do? Turn to food.

I was literally eating myself into an early grave. Until I made my New Year’s Resolution last year and followed it by starting P90X. I loved that P90X is a routine, sets a schedule so you have something daily to look forward to. It changes daily and it’s fun. Also, the meal plan and recipes kept my eating on track.

And when I started adding Shakeology, I gained a ton of energy, could sleep better, and felt like I could focus better. Don’t get me wrong, there were tons of days when I felt like giving up, but being in a Challenge Group helped me keep up—those people were there to support me, give me courage and inspiration.

And this time it worked. Thanks to P90X and Shakeology as well as TurboJam and TurboFire, I kept my Resolution. I lost well over 100 lbs. I have more energy, more confidence, I haven’t used pills for my headaches, my body doesn’t hurt anymore, my blood pressure and cholesterol are the best they’ve ever been— and I can run and play with my son without pain!”

You can do it to!! You are NEXT!! Starting March 4th, ask me how! No goal, big or small is worth WAITING!!![button link=”http://www.teambeachbody.com/connect/beachbody-challenge?referringRepId=207453″] JOIN THE CHALLENGE[/button]

Tara G.’s AMAZING Beachbody Transformation!!!

Tara achieved this stunning transformation in a little over a year with the help of P90X®Insanity®, and Insanity The Asylum. Now she can keep up with her Marine Corps husband, and she won $500 in the Beachbody Challenge. Enter your results for a chance to win:http://bit.ly/ChaLNG

“I chose P90X because it was the most intense program Beachbody offered—and I was looking to take no prisoners. My results were great, so I moved on to Insanity. Shaun T is amazing and has a no excuse work ethic that I love! He doesn’t baby you. It’s ‘Get fit or get out!’ You gotta love that. I love it so much, I entered The ASYLUM, and that’s my favorite program so far. I’ve lost 78 lbs. to date. I’m lean and toned, but the best news is that I can keep up with my Marine Corps husband—and that makes me really happy!

What is better to burn fat, Weights or Cardio? The Answer is here…

So many clients come to be and say, “I don’t want to lift because I am afraid I am going to bulk up!” Well yes that is a concern for many, but if you follow a program the way it should be followed- MUSCLE BURNS FAT and you will slim down and lean out!

One of my Favorite Transformations- Lindsay Matway

The Answer from Livestrong.com

When it comes to burning off fat, weights have an edge over cardio.

There’s a common misperception that resistance training can’t work your cardiovascular system, but ask anyone who’s ever performed a 20-rep set of squats if his heart rate is elevated. It will be.

Technically speaking, anything that elevates your heart rate is “cardio.” Traditional steady-state cardio (think running a 5K, using the elliptical machine, or doing step aerobics) can be beneficial in terms of fat loss — at least for a while. But your body adapts to any stress placed on it. Over time, the work required to, say, run a 5K will decrease as your fitness improves. Diminishing returns kicks in. What once took 20 minutes to burn X number of calories will take 30 minutes, and then 40 minutes and so on.

With weights, on the other hand, you can stave off this effect by varying your exercises to keep your body guessing. You can change things up by adding resistance, decreasing rest time, increasing the number of reps you do or changing the order of your exercises. All of these things prevent your body from hitting a plateau, boosting your ability to burn fat.

Lifting weights also increases your lean muscle mass, which further increases metabolism at rest. That means you’ll be burning more calories throughout the day

 

One of my favorite programs is Chalean Extreme, It is a weights program and DEFINITELY WORKS! “Get ready to burn fat, boost your metabolism, and get LEAN with ChaLEAN Extreme®, my new, clinically proven fat loss system that uses cardio and resistance training in a brand-new way to get you better results in less time. Now you can burn up to 60% of your body fat in just 3 months and see visible results every 30 days—GUARANTEED!”

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?Before I started I was a sedentary, insecure shell of who I am now. I got married at 21, got pregnant immediately and due to medication, was unable to lose the weight that I’d gained. I suffered from depression and anxiety. I HATED going in to my closet and would just cry after trying on outfit after outfit. WIth a very strict diet I lost a little weight right before I got pregnant with my 2nd daughter, but had a very inactive,junk-food filled pregnancy. After the birth of her, I was a 170lb, 24 yr old. I didn’t want to go out to social functions because no matter what the weather, I was going to have to figure out what body slimmer, or girdle, or sweater I was going to to wear to make my body look “OK”. I got to the point where I thought I was too worthless to exercise. I was so ashamed of myself. I wanted to go out, and be active, and live life like a young woman in her 20’s with two beautiful daughters and an amazing husband should, but was too disgusted to even try.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?What inspired me to begin was a picture taken of me at a family dinner. I didn’t even recognize myself. That was not me. I am fun. I am not tired. I am excited about life, and active. That was NOT who I saw in the picture. My mom saw how upset I was and said, “you have to try this workout. It’s called TurboJam.” She turned on the dvd and I watched this tiny energetic blonde woman, dancing and kickboxing along side other beautiful bodied, energetic women. “Those are all models that signed up for some casting call and got in the dvd.” I said. Then I watched more and the energy was pulling me in. I listened to the testimonials of the REAL WOMEN doing TJ and realized, “they are NOT models. They are MOMS, they are people that are working their butts off to be like they are!” I took the dvd home and worked out to it that night, 4/12/2008. As I punched and kicked and pumped away with a smile on my face, my husband looked at me and said, “this is the thing that’s going to change your life”
Why did you choose the particular program?I chose TurboJam, because of the amazing energy of Chalene Johnson. She is an incredible motivator and so fun to work out with! The women in the dvd’s are REAL. They have weight struggles, they have kids, and they have amazing bodies and outlooks on life. I had NEVER stuck with a workout program or been excited to do a workout day after day. But, TJ changed my life. It changed my attitude. It’s such a fun, dancey, party workout that I couldn’t help but love it and I sweat like I’d never sweat before! TJ also had so many different workouts to choose from. I started out doing just the 20 minute and AbJam for the first month and still lost 10-15 lbs. Then I revved it up with CP3 and the Live workouts and shed even more weight. It is such an amazing program with tons of variety. Over the years, while maintaining my weight I have had great success with Chalean Extreme and am currently killing it with TurboFIre! Talk about sweating! These programs are amazing and I can’t get enough!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?The results! TurboJam and the other Chalene Johnson programs WORK. I lost 40 lbs doing TurboJam and eating a healthy diet. I’ve kept the weight off for 4 years through TJ, TurboFire and Chalean Extreme. That is stunning to me! I couldn’t have done it without such an amazing program and fantastic motivator. I felt like I was IN the class with those people. I felt like I knew them, and it made me want to class. It made me push harder than I ever thought I could. It made me sweat and burn and dig deep and that’s what gets results! I am a different person than I was 4 years ago because of these awesome programs.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge?The greatest challenges I’ve faced all have to do with motherhood. I got pregnant with my 3rd daughter just 5 months after reaching my goal. With my other pregnancies I ate terribly and was completely inactive. Not this time! My third pregnancy was amazing. With my dr’s consent I continued TurboJam and stayed active thanks to the confidence and energy I had gained from the months of training I had just completed. I gained a healthy ammount of weight and was able to burn it off after I gave birth to my daughter. I lost the weight doing TurbJam and TurboFire and have kept it off. Any time you have a family you have to prioritize your fitness. If you don’t MAKE time for it, you will never FIND time for it. I work out every night after my kids go to bed. It’s my time for ME. I am better wife and mother because of it. I constantly set new goals and fire through them, but maintaing and staying in shape once I reached my goal weight was a challenge that I’m SO proud to have conquered.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of?OH my! My results were fantastic. I went from 168lbs to 127 from April 2008-Sept2008 and have maintained since then. The weight loss was a miracle for me. I had begun to think I was going to be out of shape and unhealthy for the rest of my life. I dropped my dress size from 14-4! It still shocks me and I still have a hard time buying small shirts even after all of this time. I have toned arms and legs and my stomach is better than I could have hoped! Probably my favorite result though, is my change in attitude and who I am. I LOVE FITNESS NOW. I’m not scared of it. I tell others about the Beachbody programs and have inspired MANY of my friends and family to get in shape and try Beachbody workouts. I recently became a Beachbody coach and am so excited to officially get my friends involved in Beachbody! That’s something I never would have done before. I’m so much more outgoing that I was before. I am no longer intimidated by in shape people. I am one of them. It feels amazing!

15 Tips to help you stay on track to Reach YOUR MOMENT

Take your training to the next level – whether that means upping your game by signing up for an extreme challenge or just getting off the couch and into your workout shoes for the first time. I’ll be here to guide and support you along your journey by providing expert diet and fitness plans, inspirational videos, informative tips and much more to help you Train for Your Moment.

 

Eat less, exercise more.That’s the simple solution to anyone’s weight loss questions. But if it was that easy, more people would be in great shape. Turns out, some of your other behaviors play a big role in fat loss. Try these 15 tips—including several surprises—to fire up your metabolism speed up your lean body transformation.

1. Have a Plan

The old saying goes: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Have a realistic goal and set specific targets for your week to reach that goal, says Emma-Leigh Synnott, M.B.B.S, an exercise, nutrition, and metabolism specialist. However, make sure that you don’t end up being too strict with yourself. Life is about more than your diet. So be sure to find that balance between reaching your goal, and enjoying the moment too.

2. Sleep More

Sleep does more than help your body recover from a long day — it actually helps you fight fat. In fact, researchers at the University of Chicago reported that sleeping less than 7 to 8 hours can increase your appetite (forcing you to overeat), slow your metabolism (causing you to burn fewer calories) and make the body retain more abdominal fat. Need another reason to sleep more? Lack of shut-eye is also associated with bad workouts. Do yourself a favor and get some rest. Your body will thank you.

 

3. Eat Less More Often

Eating 5-6 small meals a day will speed up your metabolism and teach you how to eat in portion. Studies have said several things but when you eat smaller meals throughout the day (clean, raw, and healthy), you will rev your metabolism up and it will help you lose weight!

4. Know How Much You Are Eating

Part one of the energy equation is to simply restrict your fuel intake. But unfortunately, most people do very badly with this. Research has shown that most people grossly underestimate how much they are eating, sometimes by up to 50 percent! There are a number of ways you can track what you are eating, such as using MyPlate through livestrong.com or Myfitnesspal,com, but whatever system you use the key is consistency and accuracy.

5. Move More (LOTS more!)

This is, essentially, the second half of the equation – the calories-out side.Unfortunately, most people struggle with this process. In today’s society we are largely sedentary: We travel in cars, we work in front of computers all day and we relax in front of the television. Add incidental exercise (like talking the stairs or tapping your foot) in addition to formal activity (such as playing sports, lifting weights, running, a Beachbody Program) to see the greatest benefits

6. Remove Liquid Calories

You want the truth: 65 percent of Americans drink beverages that are heavy in calories. Not only are these drinks less likely to keep you full, thus leaving you hungry, they are oftentimes loaded with sugar. Yes this means your crystal light, juices, alcohol, pop, sweetened tea, and anything with artificial sweeteners in it!

7. Plan a Cheat Meal

This will help your body see that you are not depriving it from what it is use to and you can splurge, will losing weight!- it is ONE MEAL, not a WHOLE DAY!

8. Make Yourself Accountable

Surround yourself with tools to help you with your journey. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Join my support group or Challenge group! Let people know your goals and ask for their support in helping you achieving them. The more supported you are, the better.

9. Practice Carb Swapping

Carb swapping is is one of the easiest (and fastest) ways to jump-start weight loss. Replace foods like pasta, rice and bread with fruits and vegetables. The fruits and vegetables have fewer calories and carbohydrates than their processed counterparts. That means you can eat more total food without adding weight.

 

10. Eat More Fat

Did you know that the Institute of Medicine recommends that a diet be made up of 25 to 35 percent fat? Turns out, high-fat foods like nuts, avocados and healthy oils can help you lose fat faster than other diet approaches. Just make sure you figure out how much fat you need in your diet to prevent yourself from overeating. And, as always, avoid the trans fats. They’re still not healthy.

11. Eat More Protein

Protein helps you maintain lean body mass (muscle, not fat), and increase the thermic effect of your diet. That is, protein requires more energy for your body to process than carbohydrates or fat. This can subtly contribute to the calories-out side of the energy equation. As a bonus, eating protein keeps you fuller longer, and researchers have shown that it can reduce how much you eat per day by hundreds of calories.

12. DRINK MORE WATER: Become a Heavy Drinker

No we’re not talking about alcohol. While there’s nothing magical about water, the process of consuming lots of liquid can trick you into feeling less hungry. What’s more, when you’re dehydrated you burn 2 percent fewer calories per day, says University of Utah researchers. So if you struggle to control your appetite, drink up before your meal. Then drink some more. You’ll be more likely to fight off fat. You should be drinking 50% of your weight in ounces!

13. Drink Shakeology

Your diet should primarily consist of whole-food sources like meats, veggies, fruits and nuts. However, research published in the Journal of Nutrition found those who consume whey-protein shakes lost almost twice as much fat as those who didn’t have the shakes. Magic? Hardly. The protein in shakeology isn’t any more effective than protein found in solid meals. However, most people don’t get enough protein in their diets, and the shakeology is a convenient way to meet your body’s needs.

Read more: HERE

14. Be Patient and Give Yourself Time

You didn’t gain weight overnight, so you will not take it off overnight either. Give yourself time and know that the weight will come off if you stick to your plan.

15. COMMIT to a program

Sticking to a program will give yourself the best results, whether that is getting involved into a support group or a challenge group. COMMIT and write down your goals that you want to reach- share them with me and I will help you succeed. nminton24@gmail.com

6 Diet Killers…. Why are you not losing weight????

Wondering why all your efforts to drop the LBS are just not happening? Here are 6 BIG reasons!

1) You don’t measure EVERY ITEM you will be eating (eyeballing is never good)
2) You don’t drink enough water. (Make it your MINIMUM to get in at least 100oz)
3) You are eating too much fruit! (limit to 1 a day if you need it)
4) You are eating too much Dairy (yeah yeah, “but greek yogurt is GOOD for you, right?” Kill the dairy and you will immediately see changes)
5) Condiment KING! Lay off the “sauce”. Sodium, calories, sugars are typically loaded in these puppies)
6) Skipping meals cause you are not hungry! I know- sounds crazy- but you aren’t hungry! Well, you are eating to fuel your body for optimal function, not for filling the brain with yummy food you want or crave. Eating frequently helps keep the fire burning. Know your daily caloric intake and divide your meals up to at least 5 times a day. So if you are eating 1500 calories a day, make each meal around 300 calories to keep it easier on your brain. =)- Christine Dwyer

 

DO you do any or all of these??? Try to eliminate one a day and see the results you get in just one week! I would love to know how this helps you hit your goals!!! Comment below what your results are like in just one week after eliminating these all!

Kelly L.’s Beachbody Transformation – ChaLEAN Extreme and Shakeology

 

“Ok friends! It’s been 90 days and I have my results from the challenge group I participated in. I ate clean, drank shakeology every day, and worked out 6 days a week. I know the picture isn’t of my front, but I think this gives the best idea of my transformation. I used to be a yo-yo dieter. I never ever ate healthy. In high school, dinner was whatever my mom brought home from Mickey D’s, Wendys, or Burger King. I got plenty of exercise, because I never sat around, so I was relatively thin. In college, I continued my active lifestyle but continued to eat terribly. I consistently stayed at a size 10 or 12. Fast forward to 2003 and I got my first job. I was exhausted when I got home from work. I would sit on the couch, watch tv, and eat an entire box of cereal or crackers for dinner. I had a gym membership but I never went. Once I was home, I was home! I tried it all over the years. Weight watchers, NutriSystem, fad diets, starving myself and guess what – nothing worked. Then I got married and had two babies. My weight had somehow crept the whole way up to 214. At 5’7″, that was just too much. I was at an all time low. My husband even said something to me about it. Talk about embarassing Well, that was the kick in the butt that I needed. I started eating clean, drinking shakeology and working out 6 days a week. In the first month alone, I lost 19 pounds! By the end of the second month of my challenge, I was down 35.9 pounds! When I finished the 90 day challenge, I was down 43 pounds and 5 pant sizes! I’m no where near where I want to be, so I am giving P90X a go this time. I’m really nervous about it but excited at the same time.”- Kelly L

What is Les Mills Combat and How will it work for YOU!?

 

 

 

Why is LES MILLS COMBAT so effective? 

The secret is Fast Twitch Integration Training—a blend of the most dynamic moves from karate, tae kwon do, boxing, muay thai/kickboxing, capoeira, and jiu-jitsu combined in explosive, escalating patterns. This works your fast-twitch muscle fibers—they’re the ones with the greatest capacity for change—like crazy! You’ll be burning massive amounts of calories during your workouts and continue burning calories even after your workouts, so you’ll amp up strength and maximize lean muscle definition.

What can training with LES MILLS COMBAT do for you? 

• Build lean muscle mass, increase endurance, condition—and incinerate fat—all at the same time

• Develop the coordination, agility, and muscle speed of a mixed martial arts warrior

• Maximize calorie burn during and after your workout

• Improve posture, core strength, and stability

• Build self-confidence, strength, and power

What is LES MILLS COMBAT? 

LES MILLS COMBAT is an explosive mixed martial arts–inspired body transformation program that will help rip, shred, and lean you out for unparalleled results. Blending dynamic martial arts–inspired training with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), LES MILLS COMBAT pushes your body far beyond where it’s ever been before. You’ll punch, kick, and strike your way to the biggest adrenaline rush—and your best body ever—in just 60 days!

Beachbody® and Les Mills International have teamed up once again to bring you a high-octane workout program based on the immensely popular BODYCOMBAT® gym classes taught in 80 countries around the world, with expert trainers, chart-topping music—and muscle-shredding results. Now for the first time, LES MILLS COMBAT is available for home use.

The Les Mills International Pro Trainers 

Your LES MILLS COMBAT workouts are led by two mixed martial arts (MMA) experts, Dan Cohen and Rachael Newsham. Dan has black belts in kickboxing and Lau Gar Chinese boxing and won the 1996 British Masters kickboxing competition. Rachael is a master trainer with exclusive education from a Wing Chun Kung Fu school, as well as muay thai training in Thailand.

 

What makes LES MILLS COMBAT unique? 

This mixed martial arts–inspired body transformation system delivers real results—fast. Moves from 6 different disciplines were carefully selected for the physical response demand they place on the body as they blast your fast-twitch muscle fibers. This type of training is one of the most effective ways to help stimulate rapid body composition changes. But you don’t have to be a mixed martial arts expert to have the lean and athletic body of one! LES MILLS COMBAT brings you the benefits of a proven global program that will help get you lean and ripped like no other workout on the market. All you need to do is keep it real . . . and stay with the fight!

Rachel L’s BEACHBODY P90X Transfarmation

 

Racheal L.
Racheal lost 50 lbs and 4″ off her waist!

I’m a Shakeology junkie! I have it everyday, NO matter what! I actually perfer my shake over food . . . It keeps my eating clean, I don’t have cravings for sweets, my energy is thru the roof, it keeps my mood positive, I can’t say enough about how much Shakeology does for me!

What Racheal L. won:
$1,000
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? *I was always small in high school, that’s what everyone says right? I would look at pictures of the person I use to be and make excuses of why I couldn’t be that girl anymore. I had kids, I was busy, I couldn’t workout like I use to.Well, this was getting me no where and no matter what excuses I made for myself, it didn’t make me like the girl I saw in the mirror anymore then the day before. I felt uncomfortable in every thing I wore, and I hated going shopping. What had happen to the girl that LOVED shopping? What happen to my love for eating good, healthy food? Over the years I slowly had put on weight and was just tired of not feeling good.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? *Working out and eating healthy has always been something I care about, it just wasn’t always at the top of my priority list.Two years ago my mother passed away at the age of 56, and it was at that moment that I decided to change my life, and my families. I realized I had let myself become someone I didn’t know.I decided NO more excuses, and I owed it to myself and my husband and kids to be around for them. Not only did I want to feel healthy, I wanted to get my confidence back. I didn’t feel good physically which of course was my reason for not working out. My health and my families health became my number one priority! I decided if we felt good, we could enjoy life everyday together with no excuses.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? *My greatest challenge was just STARTING! I would say ok, this week I’m gonna start. I think it was such a challenge to just start because I was afraid of failing. If I didn’t try I couldn’t fail. I was letting everything else in my life come before my health. Beachbody helped me with staying accountable! I didn’t have to be afraid because I wasn’t the only one who had these struggles. We all have personal struggles in our life and once I saw that other people struggled to, but made it to the other side, my competitive nature kicked in and that was all I needed! I have never looked back, and everyday I continue to set goals for myeslf and do whatever I can to reach them!
Why did you choose this particular program? *I have done several Beachbody workouts over the past two years, but Insanity is what pushed me to the next level in my journey! I chose it because I LOVE Shaun T.’s attitude, he doesn’t give up on you and DOES not except you giving up on yourself. He knows how TOUGH his workouts are, and he knows that not everyone can do every single move throughout the entire workout, but as long as you are giving your best, he motivates you to DIG DEEP!!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? *I LOVE that Insanity pushes you no matter what level you are at. Shaun T. never promises it will be easy, and he encourages you to hate him, to be mad at him, but promises you will love the results! He is right and his workouts deliver.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? *The achievement I’m most proud of is I feel GREAT everyday! Feeling good and living life to its fullest was my biggest GOAL, and I can say I have reached it! My health was and continues to be my biggest motivator. I love life, and now have so much energy to enjoy it! I have motivated my friends and family to take care of themselves, and realize they deserve it! I’m really proud and honored to motivate anyone I can!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? *My life is wonderful! I get up everyday excited and ready to take on everything life throws my way! Our health is a gift and we should not take it for granted. I have learned to look at food as fuel for my workouts, not something to reward myself with. My rewards come from feeling good about myself, and doing whatever I can to help others feel good too!!

Stephanie S. Daily Beachbody WInner

I love to see success stories like these because people don’t think it is possible to reach goals when you use a “low impact” or shorter workout, or weights “bulk you up.” Stephanie Shows you that you can drop weight and tone with any program as long as you stay consistent!

 

“Back fat. Flabby arms. Cellulite on my legs. I hated my appearance and was far from where I wanted to be. To make matters worse, I was taking steroids for an autoimmune disease and had no energy at all. Then, one day, I saw a picture of how in-shape I was in high school. That’s when I knew something had to change.

I contacted a friend who was a Beachbody Coach. Since I’m all about the quick fix, I chose the six-week program, Slim in 6®. I lost 17 pounds! I also loved working out to the motivational music of LES MILLS PUMP. Another HUGE part of my success is Shakeology®. It gives me more energy and I will never stop using it.

Now I’m so much happier with my body. I’ve lost weight, gained muscle, and am finally able to wear a bikini again. Best of all, I’ve changed my way of thinking. Working out is now part of my day—not a chore!”

Liz B. Daily Beachbody Challenge Daily $500 Winner

 

Meet Liz B! She won the $500 as the Beachbody Challenge Daily Winner!!!

 

“Going through the motions. That’s how I would describe my life. I wasn’t happy with the way I looked and how my clothes fit. I only wished I had the motivation to do something about it. I wanted to be happy and healthy for my family, but I needed to find a structured program to reach my fitness goals.

One night while I was pedaling away on the elliptical machine, the TurboFire® infomercial came on television. Right off the bat I was intrigued. Dance-like moves. Upbeat music. The energy pouring out of the screen was incredible. Soon, I was doing the workouts every day, and actually missing it if I skipped even one day!

Now I’m in the best shape of my life and never looking back. I’ve lost 15 pounds and 10 inches over my entire body. When I started this program I was a size 8/10 and am now a size 4/6! I actually have abs now, and sculpted arms, too. But the best gift TurboFire has given me is confidence. I’ve achieved more this year than I have in my whole life. TurboFire not only transformed me physically, but mentally I am 110% stronger.”

You can change your life, too. Take The Beachbody Challenge™, for the ultimate motivation to get fit! Select any Beachbody® program and once you complete it, share your results for your chance to win cash and prizes.

What Stephanie M. won:
$1,000
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?I started struggling with my weight in my 20’s, and after two pregnancies it spiraled out of control. I was ashamed of how I looked, but too tired to do anything about it. I went back to work full time after the birth of my second son in 2008, and was the heaviest I’ve ever been – at 227 lbs on a 5’7 frame. My youngest son did not sleep well through the night, so I was functioning on only 2-3 hours of sleep while working 45 hours a week. I was exhausted, emotionally and physically. I was depressed and too tired to care, but deep down I did care. A lot. I turned to food to help me cope, and before I knew it I was binging on cookies and cake to help numb the pain.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?I was sitting on my kitchen floor at 2am eating a cupcake, as I had just gotten the baby to sleep again. That was my reward to myself. I ate it in 2 bites, and as I stared at the empty wrapper, I started to cry. What was I doing to myself? My kids deserved a healthy mom. Why would I want to deprive them of that? I couldn’t even chase after my oldest son in the back yard. I knew then that I needed to change, for them and for me.
Why did you choose the particular program?Muscle burns fat! When I heard that phrase from the program, I was intrigued. I was always scared to lift weights, because I didn’t want to bulk up. I liked Chalene’s philosophy, and with sucess from Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire, I knew I couldn’t go wrong.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?The sense of empowerment that I feel every time I lift those weights. I love how Chalene takes the time to teach you the proper form. Form is key and makes all the difference!
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge?I was losing weight and feeling great, then this past February my family received news that would forever change our lives. My 2 year old nephew was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer. I felt that same pain coming back, and the numbness was trying to set in. I didn’t want to exercise or eat right. I kept thinking “why should I? What does it matter?” We went to see him the night he was diagnosed. He was sitting up in bed with the brightest smile, pushing his truck. My heart was breaking and tears were streaming down my face, but he was able to smile and be happy.Given a survival rate of 25%, St. Jude’s accepted him with open arms. He is in his 7 month of treatment there, and after the successful removal of the tumor, all of his scans have come back clear! My nephew is facing a challenge that no one should ever have to face. He helped me gain my perspective & find my inner strength again.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of?At 31 years old, I am in the best shape of my life. Thanks to Chalean Extreme, I have lost inches all over! My muscles are toned and sculpted in a way I never thought possible. I am lifting weights that I never thought possible! This program has changed me both physically and mentally. The sense of empowerment I feel when I lift weights is almost undescribable. Chalean Extreme not only changed my body, it changed my life!

Lost 200 lbs. and 22 pant sizes!

“Losing 200 lbs in 13 months is not an easy task, but I did it and it has to be one of the most amazing feelings I have ever felt before! . . . Shakeology is my secret weapon!”

What Richard N. won:
$100,000 + a trip to Las Vegas!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?From as far back as I can remember, I have been obese. I always saw it as something that just was part of me, but I always hated it. I was lazy – I didn’t really know how or want to put forth any effort to change that. As a kid, my mother would find wrappers from whole packages of lunchmeat or hot dogs under my bed that I had hidden after late night eating. In my early 20’s, my schedule as a Restaurant Manager never allowed me to eat during the day, so when I came home at night I would combine all three meals in to one. If I couldn’t sleep or was bored late at night, I would eat. I always hated myself for my weight, but found myself compensating by always being the first to make a joke about my weight in fear that someone else might. I became comfortable always being the “fat guy” in the family… or anywhere for that matter.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?The first realization that I needed to do something was when I was put on blood pressure medicine at age 25. The doctor also told me that I needed to lose 30lbs in 30 days. I thought that was impossible to do. And after the 30 days, I had not lost anything. I was wearing 56” pants, 5X shirts & had to go to the scrap yard to weigh myself b/c I was over 400lbs. I couldn’t even reach to clip my own toe nails – my wife had to do that for me. I also didn’t think that my wife & I would be able to have kids b/c of my size. My coach is also my insurance agent so when I’d come by his office, he’d encourage me to make a change. He’d been doing Beachbody programs for 3 years. We became friends and he took me to Columbus, OH to a Beachbody meeting & I met Tommy Mygrant and Craig Holiday. They both encouraged me that I could do this and get the results I wanted. I had never really had that support before. I was excited to see if I could do this!
Why did you choose the particular program?I started with Power90 because by now, I had heard & met so many success stories. I remember that first day sitting on my couch looking at the disc, thinking, “I am going to do this today”. So I did and BARELY made it through. But I felt accomplished and called Jeff who said, “Great! Now continue to do it every day for the next thirty days.” So after 30 days I’d lost 45lbs. By the end of 90 days I’d lost over 70lbs. I gradually progressed to P90X which was a whole other world. While I couldn’t do everything or finish the workouts & HAD to modify alot, I thrived on the challenges in P90X – and still do!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?I loved that in every P90X workout, there were modifications that I could do. Tony’s personality also made the workouts much more enjoyable. I could see results right away, and after finishing 90 days, it was clear that this was a program that actually worked! And it wasn’t just about the workouts; there were so many tools like the fitness guide & meal plans that helped me along the way. I loved Tony’s phrase, “do your best and forget the rest”, and that is now my motto for everything I do.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge?I would say the greatest challenge was just sticking with the program and not giving up. There were so many days that I just thought, “can I really do this?”. My wife was very supportive, but most of my own family wasn’t, and that added more stress on top of an already challenging situation. Scheduling was a big challenge b/c not only was I working full time 3rd shift, I was also having to take care of my dying mother-in-law. Twelve hour days at the cancer center for treatments took a lot out of me. I overcame it all by sticking with my original decision that I HAD to make a change – period.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of?I HIT THE 200LB WEIGHT LOSS MARK THIS MONTH!!! I am healthy for the first time in my life! Losing 200 lbs in 13 months is not an easy task, but I did it and it has to be one of the most amazing feelings I have ever felt before! I’m off all meds now! I now have definition in my arms that I have never had before. I can do push-ups, pull-ups, and everything I never thought I could before! I’m now doing P90X & INSANITY hybrids. I easily completed the Warrior Dash this month as well – a 5k with 12 obstacles solely from doing Beachbody programs. I now have lots of folks asking ME for fitness advice – imagine that! I’ve constantly got friends from high school who are amazed at my results. Remember when I said that my wife & I could not have a baby due to my weight? Well, I am proud to say that due to my weight loss, my wife is now 2 ½ months pregnant! What an achievement from using my Beachbody program!

Are you ready to challenge your team? Do we even have to ask?

 

Where can I pre-order COMBAT?

 

Right here!

 

So what does “pre-order” actually mean?

 

 Between October 1st and October 31st, customers can ONLY pre-order COMBAT from a Team Beachbody Coach or at TeamBeachbody.com. That means YOU get first dibs at selling (and buying) this new program, and YOUR customers will get it first when it become available in December.

 

Are there extra incentives to offer my customers?

 

Of course! Not only will they get it first, but when they buy from you, they’ll also get FREE shipping (when it ships) and an exclusive LES MILLS COMBAT bonus workout—created specifically for the Coach Network. Exclusive sales window. Free shipping. Bonus DVD. It’s all good.

 

Will I have sales tools available for pre-order?

 

Absolutely. Stop by the “Product Tool Kits” page in your back office and search for LES MILLS COMBAT. We’ll be adding banners, Talking Points, an eCard, shareable video and more.

 

Who will love COMBAT?

 

Everyone. COMBAT is perfect for anyone who’s inspired by mixed martial arts—even if they’re beginners. It’s a fun workout, full of energetic moves that will get cardio going, burn off fat and lean out muscles. And who doesn’t want that? Seriously.  It’s also great for those who are pretty athletic, but are looking to take it to the next level. And of course, if they’re already seriously fit, they’ll power beyond their limits and get ridiculously shredded in just 60 days. And that’s just great for your business.

 

What’s the next move?

 

As you know, early inventory is limited and could sell out faster than you can even say COMBAT. Again, make sure to pre-order yours between October 1 – October 31st to get FREE shipping AND a FREE bonus workout—COMBAT 30: LIVE. It’s a unique opportunity to join the Les Mills COMBAT trainers for a muscle-scorching COMBAT class—shot live in the UK.

 

Can my customers pre-order COMBAT Challenge Packs?

 

During pre-order, ONLY the DVD program will be available for purchase. Stay tuned for an update on when Challenge Packs will be made available.

 

So… Pre-order COMBAT today. Get your team excited. And start a challenge group, unlike any other!

Why do YOU workout?!?

This question is a simple one, but has many responses and opinions…. When you are working out you: keep your head up, stay aligned in the feet and hips, tuck the ribs, bend the knees, BREATH. But I have been thinking about this question lately because I am currently unable to workout: “Why do you workout?” is a loaded one. Often, people begin workout routines because they want to lose weight, or they feel guilty for eating a high calorie meal, or they have an upcoming event that they want to lose weight for, or they simply have an ongoing goal to look better. But the benefits of exercise run so much deeper than these reasons.

 

Working out gives me energy, puts my in a better mood, and makes my body feel fresh! I feel there is a mental connection to being physically active. Through exercise, I have gotten stronger, more confident in my physical capabilities, more serious about my muscle and skeletal health, and I look toward a future of flexibility and strength in my older age. With going to the Chiropractor this has really made me see how working out with proper form makes your whole body work they way it was designed! If your alignment is off, then you are off. I used to agonize over a missed workout, because I thought that taking a day or two off for some rest meant I was lazy. Now I realize that rest is extremely important and valuable to both our physical and mental states. Your relationship with exercise, just like your relationship with food, is an important place to explore your relationship with yourself. Your muscles grow when they are at rest, so TAKE YOUR REST DAYS SERIOUSLY!

I treat working out in like a sports team practicing, because each week I build on my skills and challenge myself a little more. And even if I take a break or don’t do as many reps as my last workout, I push harder the next time until I master it. And that’s what working out means to me: To challenge my body, my mind, and my confidence. It’s all about how YOU make the workout control you… you can CONQUER ANYTHING you PUT YOUR MIND TO! A Healthy you is a HAPPY you!

Nikki’s Beachbody Challenges: FITNESS + NUTRITION + SUPPORT = SUCCESS

 

It’s all about what you are ready to COMMIT to! I have been doing Beachbody for 9 months now and LOVE IT, I have completed P90X, Insanity, and now onto P90X2.  Before I started Beachbody I was going to the gym- had a personal trainer, I tried EVERY Diet out there- whether it was a Diet pill, starving myself, or bingeing.  NOTHING WORKED FOR ME! I got to the point I was disgusted with my body, It was 18 months after I had my son, second child, and I was FED UP! I got so depressed that is was interfering with my marriage, my family, and me being a good mother! I knew I needed CHANGE! So, My coach Kati had talked to me previously and I finally said I AM IN! Within the First Month we started a Summer Slim Down Challenge which helped me stay accountable and on track, if I needed help with nutrition they were there! I have never thought there would be as much SUPPORT from a group of strangers than THIS TEAM! The motivation is INSANE!!! This is where my Journey started and I want to Pay it Forward and Help those out there that need help staying accountable, getting motivated, and having the support. YOU are WORTH IT! It is YOUR Life and YOU DESERVE THE BEST!!!

 

I’m  forming a Challenge group based on the Beachbody Challenge.   Here’s the deal . . . it’s simple!

FITNESS + NUTRITION + SUPPORT = SUCCESS

The commitment is 90 days of a Beachbody® workout program , Shakeology®, and the Challenge Group accountability page. You commit to the Beachbody workout program of your choice , Shakeology once a day, and a Challenge Group spot for accountability and support. We all work together and help each other WIN!

This is a proven and simple formula, and those who commit are much more likely to finish and GET THE ABSOLUTE BEST RESULTS!

—You do everything at home, on your time and your schedule. No in-person meetings or group workouts. (unless you come to fit club!!)
—Group interaction is all done on Facebook, so you can post along with the team each day.

So if you are SERIOUS about taking the Challenge MESSAGE ME NOW, so we can get you into the group and all of the commitments sorted out!!! I will help you the through the WHOLE Process!

I will give you the LEAD- YOU HAVE TO RUN WITH IT!
