BEACHBODY ON DEMAND

FOR THE FOLLOWING FITNESS PROGRAMS:

P90X Go from regular to ripped in 90 days.

If you want to get in the best shape of your life, the P90X® Extreme Home Fitness system is the program for you. Tony Horton, your personal P90X trainer, uses the science of Muscle Confusion™ to constantly challenge your body with new moves and routines. So your results never plateau, and you get in better shape in less time.

P90X2 is no ordinary sequel.

The result of two years of R&D conducted by a team of the most qualified experts in fitness, this is training so cutting edge, so outrageously effective, you’ll be blown away by your visible results. AND your performance.

P90X® is based on Muscle Confusion™–to break through normal 30-day training plateaus so you get results fast. P90X2 ups the ante with a training technique developed by professional sports trainers for world class results: P.A.P., or Post-Activation Potentiation. Don’t try to remember the word, just remember that it works. Like crazy.

P90X3 GET RIPPED IN 30 MINUTES A DAY.

Feel like there isn’t enough time in your jam-packed schedule to work out?

Welcome to P90X3’s Muscle Acceleration system—your ultimate EXCUSE-BUSTER.

Trainer Tony Horton took everything he learned from P90X® and P90X2®—coupled it with new science that shows intense 30-minute workouts can get you in better shape faster—and slammed it all into overdrive.

The result? Short, targeted, intense workouts that take just 30 minutes—but leave you looking like you’ve been tearing it up in the gym all day, every day.

Insanity The hardest workout program ever put on DVD.

Are you ready for the ultimate challenge? You can transform your body in 60 days with this total body conditioning program. And you won’t need equipment or weights—just the desire to dig deep and push past your limits.

In INSANITY®, Shaun T uses a method called Max Interval Training. It’s not your typical interval workout. You’ll do cardio and plyometric drills with intervals of strength, power, resistance, and core training. It all happens in long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest so you can burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour.

TurboFire High-intensity kickboxing and interval training.

If you want to get amazing results—and have crazy fun doing it—then you’ll love TurboFire®, Chalene Johnson’s intense 90-day cardio program. TurboFire combines motivating music with athletic kickboxing moves that will awaken your inner athlete and help you burn up to 9x more fat and calories than with traditional cardio, so you can finally shed those extra pounds.

TurboFire is all about heart-pumping beats, the energy from the class, and the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Fire Drills. You’ll work out at your max for up to 1-minute intervals with short periods of rest to ignite your metabolism. As your body replenishes tired muscles with oxygen, it creates the AfterBurn Effect, which means you can keep burning calories for hours after your workout is over. Just 4 minutes of HIIT can be more effective than 30 to 45 minutes on a treadmill.

Brazil Butt Lift The Supermodels’ Secret to a Perfect Butt.

We’re not all lingerie and bikini supermodels. But who says we can’t learn their secrets to getting a firm, lifted butt? Leandro Carvalho, trainer to famous supermodels, combines Brazilian dance, cardio, and his own signature lower-body sculpting moves to help you make your booty your best feature.

Leandro’s proven TriAngle Training method works all three major muscles of the buttocks from multiple angles to lift your butt, reduce your hips and thighs, and tone those stubborn trouble zones.

10 Min Trainer No more excuses.

Does finding time to lose weight seem nearly impossible? Try 10-Minute Trainer. This program is designed with one thing in mind: better results in less time. Give superstar trainer Tony Horton just 10 minutes, he’ll give you the body you want.

In 10-Minute Trainer, Tony put his most effective moves into a series of power-packed total-body workouts. His breakthrough Super Stacking® Technique combines fat-burning cardio, body toning and sculpting, and ab moves, adding resistance bands for even faster results. In just 10 minutes of Tony’s Super Stacking you can burn as many calories as 30 minutes of jogging. With 10-Minute Trainer, you have no more excuses!

Why Beachbody?

beachbody vs others

I saw a fellow Beachbody Coach post this today and it really hit home!  I felt compelled to share it with my readers.  I started my fitness and health journey over a year ago.  I took the Insanity Challenge to change my life forever!  At that time I had no idea what Beachbody was!  I had heard about Insanity and P90X but never Shakeology, TurboFire or even coaching!  I just knew at that point in my life I need to get in shape and I had no idea where to start.  So when I decided to do Insanity it was perfect because it came with a schedule, it told me what workout to do each day and I had a community of support to keep me on track.  Just this morning as I was standing in the bathroom putting on my makeup a friend texted me and commented on how she was surprised that I was awake and did my workout.  I have been packing/moving and it would of been so easy to just take another day off from my workouts because I was overwhelmed or needed the rest.  But to be totally truthful, I actually feel pretty good today so that would have just been an excuse.  Instead, I knew that other people were counting on me to get out of bed, press play and check in on them to make sure they were up too!  So without even thinking twice I got up, put my clothes on and headed to the livingroom to do my workout!  I did my PiYo Drench and I must say I love that workout!  Chalene just motivates me to do more and be better!  I feel like superwoman when I workout with her!

So back to the reason why I posted this picture!  When I first started coaching and working out people thought I was crazy.  They thought it was another fad or phase I was going through.  But now that I am over a year into coaching and working out I feel even more compelled to share this with you!  As an Indpendent Beachbody Coach I am not here to just sell you Shakeology or a fitness program.  My job is to help you transform your life, to make eating healthy and exercising a regular part of your daily routine.  When I first signed up as a coach all I wanted to do was help 1 person transform their life, like I did to mine.  I wanted to start an Eat Clean Club and teach others the principles I learned through this challenge. I put my customers and friends first and poured my heart and soul into my customers and my first challenge group I learned the value of compassion!  I learned that when you care about others and truly do what’s best for them then the rest will follow!  Because of the time I invest each day I am successful.  People ask me all the time why my services are free!  I could charge an arm and a leg for my personal consultation, motivation and support but instead I don’t!  I honestly care about you just getting healthy and fit!  Sure I get a 25% commission from all Beachbody programs and Shakeology I sell but I am not going to recommend something that I don’t think you will or can stick with!  It’s about you finding your soulmate workout and LOVING it!  Exercise should feel rewarding and empowering and you should feel good when you are done!

I love that Beachbody offers this kind of support and that they developed the Beachbody Challenge groups!  What better way to stay on track other than to be surrounded by people who want the same things!  I love love love checking in everyday and seeing the progress my challengers are making!  I have gone through the same struggles that they have and it’s empowering to know that if I can do it with 5 kids, a boyfriend, family and busy life then you can too!

281

This support system is amazing and I love my Beachbody family!  Out of all the other fitness or weight loss programs I have seen this doesn’t even compare to the quality and sheer dedication that goes into it!  I am so proud to be a part of this organization and I hope that if you are reading this and are at a point in your life where you have hit rock bottom you will reach out to me for help and support!  I am here for you, I can help you in your journey and together we can be better and tackle anything life has to throw at us!  When you feel good about yourself you are a better mother, wife and friend!

The best part about all of this is that I truly stand behind Shakeology and their fitness programs!  Shakeology changed my life and you can’t put a price tag on happiness!  The energy, improved health and weight loss were worth it all!  To know that I am putting something that is whole and not processed into my body makes me feel amazing!  The results are the truth and I have the results and the results of many others to prove it!
So have a wonderful Friday and weekend!  If you are at a point in your life where you need support, I’m your girl!  Send me a message or sign up for a free account and I’d be glad to strategize and develop a plan to get you to the picture in your mind!  We can do it, together!!!!  You WILL SUCCEED!!!

P90X3 PiYo Challenge Update Week 3

Phew!! This week really kicked my butt. We are in the middle of moving and I’m trying really hard to stay consistent with my workouts. Meals haven’t been perfect but, I have pre-made salads and my Shakeology ready to go at a moments notice so that when hunger strikes I can fight back.

 

PiYo_Wk4_Day3_image

Tony crippled me on Friday with P90X3 Accelator so yesterday’s PiYo Sculpt was less than ALL IN. I haven’t been sticking with my 6am wakeup this week because we are working so late into the night training new coaches and packing up the house.

What I love about my meal plan is that I get a little treat in each day and I don’t feel deprived like I have in the past.

And while PiYo and P90X3 aren’t consistent with my intensity during 21 Day Fix and Insanity programs I have to say they are growing on me and PiYo JUST MIGHT be my absolute favorite workout. I’m seriously considering getting certified to teach it. Unlike my Insanity classes I think PiYo is more universal in appeal and easily modified to fit every fitness level without intimidating. And, the flexibility factor is amazing for anyone, beginner to advanced, young and old.

 

80 20 meal plan

I’m uber excited for Hardcore on the Floor this upcoming week and Drench is going to kill me 😉 I haven’t gone on my run yet today but I’m feeling like it’s going to be a dusk run to just let go of what this week has put me through mentally.

Aden’s birthday is on Saturday. It’s breaking my heart we didn’t get to do the birthday party we had planned for him. But, I’m trying to stay positive and know that everything will work out and he’ll know he’s loved and have fun no matter what we do (after a garage sale in the morning and cleaning our old house in the afternoon).

We have never gotten notice and moved within the same month before evvva so it’s grappling my mind to make sure everything is done and ready to go when it’s time to load the truck up on Friday. Keep us in your prayers!!!! ❤

Let me know what you like or don’t like about my meal plan! I loved this one from the week before so much I used it again! I’m a creature of habit and could eat the same thing day in and day out if I was pressed for ideas. My treat meal on Saturday was a Papa Napoli’s hot pastrami sandwich with mustard! OH em gee if I could only eat THOSE everyday! It was a real TREAT!!

Let me know how you love PiYo and if you want to grab your own copy and join our next accountability test group, complete my fitness questionnaire and get your challenge pack HERE, then make sure we are friends on Facebook HERE!!

PiYo P90X3 Week 2 Progress Update – 6 steps to get back on track

Week 2 of my P90X3/PiYo hybrid schedule is in the bag and I’m on to Week 3!!

I will admit I have been having a hard time getting those workouts in consistently. And my eating, well, it’s been a little 60/40. There are no workouts that will out exercise too many calories, carbs, sugars, etc.

It’s time for a little Coach Momma T TOUGH LOVE!

My own best advice I would give one of my challengers or clients:

6 STEPS TO GET BACK ON TRACK

1. Schedule your workouts in the a.m.morning workouts

2. Create a meal plan

21 day fix meal plan

3. Meal prep on Sundays

4. Throw away anything in the kitchen that might distract you from your goals

junk food

mealprepmonday

5. Stick post it’s or motivational pictures up in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom

motivation wall

fitspo board

6. Have a set goal you’re working towards

goals list

I truly feel that the hope of instant results is the reason that so many people fail. They are not willing to see it through.  We expect instant gratification and instant transformation.  It’s not going to happen. I mean it literally took me 1 round of Insanity (60days) to lose 15 lbs then it took me 60 days of T25, and 3 rounds of 21 Day Fix to get in the best shape of my life.  Honestly, it wasn’t an overnight deal.  I learned how to change my diet, to strip it down, to cut out foods that were causing me to hang onto weight and it took will power.  I remember all the things I held strong with, birthday cake, ice cream, donuts, cookies at Christmas, drinks at the bar!  It was a sacrifice because I wanted to change more than I wanted to remain the same. It’s the same with you!  How bad do you want it.  If you bought PiYo then stick with it!  You invested the money now give it 100% each and every day with the workouts and the nutrition plan and have a friendly contest with yourself to see if you can have a better transformation than the girl in the infomercial.  I’m going to be right there with YOU!! Anything that you put your whole heart into you are going to succeed at!  That’s the bottom line!!!!

Burn Fat Faster

Does this sound familiar?

You’re religiously running on the treadmill at the same pace for the same time, 5 days a week. You initially lose a little weight bit but then you start stalling.

What in THE HECK is going on here?

This is because your super smart body becomes so damn efficient at running {or whatever your chosen cardio regime}, it adjusts to the routine and starts to burn fewer calories.

cropped-diamond-jump.jpg

If you’ve ever hit a plateau in your fat loss goals, you’ll know what I mean. Frustrating? You bet. However, there are ways to make your workout more efficient, giving you better results, and, wait for it…more enjoyable!

It’s called high intensity interval training, or HIIT, and if you’ve ever gotten your ass kicked doing Insanity, you’ve experienced it.

Let’s first talk about why HIIT is so very awesome.

1. Metabolism-boosting

In addition to the superb late-effect calorie burn, HIIT also boosts your production of human growth hormone {HGH} by up to 450% for up to 24 hours after your workout. HGH is responsible for not only cranking up our inner furnace {metabolism}, but also lessens the aging process, making your body a sweet {and youthful} little fat-burning machine.

2. Stronger heart and lungs

Yes, you may FEEL like you’re gonna die whilst sprinting 100 yards over and over again, but this is short-lived. These short bursts help to condition your heart and lungs to be stronger, which means faster recovery and longer endurance for future ass-kickings.

3. Lose fat, not muscle

As opposed to steady continuous cardio, which has been linked to actual muscle loss, HIIT and weight training preserves and builds muscle mass. Just look at this side-by-side comparison of a typical marathon runner versus a {non-juicing} track athlete.

4. No equipment needed

This is a budget-conscious/road warrior/minimalist’s dream. If you have athletic shoes and space {indoors or out}, you can get your workout on. Anytime, anywhere.

5. Efficient

Less is actually more. To start reaping the benefits of HIIT, you need as little as 30 minutes 2-3 times per week, as opposed to endless hours logged on the treadmill. Yawn…

The beauty of HIIT is that you can create a workout that suits your lifestyle, likes, and environment. The following example can be done on a treadmill, on the street, on a trail, on a bike, on an elliptical, using a jump rope, rollerblading, kayaking, etc. The sky’s the limit.

I’ve modeled my personal HIIT routine after Dr. Mercola’s Peak 8 Fitness workout.

30 Minute MIX™ HIIT Routine insanity hiit workout

2 minute warm-up {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Sprint {or the equivalent, if not running} for 30 seconds {go balls to the wall – as hard and fast as your body will take you, ~70-85% of your max heart rate}

90 second recovery {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Repeat the 30 second intensity and 90 second recovery 14 times

2 minute rest {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Do this 2-3 times per week, in addition to strength training and watch the transformation* unfold.

If you’re in the beginning stages {or short on time}, start out with 20 minutes and slowly build to 30 minutes. I highly recommend using a heart rate monitor for timing and making sure you’re in the “zone” with your max heart rate. Here’s a handy tool to determine what that is. This is the heart rate monitor that I have. Not too fancy, but does the job.

And, if you’re ready to workout at home with real results you have to see what we are doing in T25 workouts.

Fortunately, with workouts like Insanity and TurboFire, HIIT has become way more mainstream, so you won’t look {too much} like a crazy person who is being chased by a bear if you opt to do this around your neighborhood. I’m not gonna lie, I do this in my little town and have received some strange looks from passers-by. Whatever.

* = Transformation will be less likely unless you’re eating a clean, balanced diet. Not sure where to begin? I can help with that.

Have you ever tried HIIT and if so, what was the reaction of onlookers to your regimen? I’d LOVE to hear! Please leave a comment. And, if you want to start your change on my team for real results leave your email HERE or friend me on FB at FB.com/tangojuliet7

Your diet isn’t working…

Your diet isn’t working. You are exercising, you are counting calories, you are pre-measuring your food but it just feels like it isn’t happening fast enough! You are tempted to listen to that advertisement you just saw and drop big dollars on pills that are promising fast fat loss! You are considering signing up for that costly spa treatment that promises to “melt fat” and get you “thin quick!” You may even pick up a jar of that expensive cream that promises to “rid your body of cellulite” Before you decide that your diet isn’t working and sign up for those expensive treatments take a look at these facts:

It is all MATH and this is a fact. It takes 3500 calories to lose one lb of fat. In order to lose 2 lbs a week you need to burn or deplete 7000 calories. 2 lbs a week may not seem like a lot but that is 104 lbs in a YEAR! WOW… when you lose more then 2 lbs a week you are tapping into water and muscle and it is not a long term solution…

Starvation and severe calorie restriction will not work. If you eat too little and too infrequently you will slow down your metabolism and train your body to STORE fat. It is best to spread out your meals into 5-6 mini meals to feed your body and rev your metabolism regularly. It is very dangerous to go under 1200 calories a day ever. Eating this little puts your body in starvation mode and teaches it to store fat.

Output must exceed input! If you eat more calories then you BURN you WILL GAIN weight… If calories in exceed calories out you will gain weight. PERIOD. YES you should be eating protein, healthy carbohydrates, and healthy fats but PORTIONS still matter. Too many calories of ANY type of food will cause you to gain weight.

LIES. If it sounds too good to be true then it IS too good to be true. The only way to LOSE FAT and to keep it off is to WORKOUT HARD and EAT CLEAN. Body wraps, cellulite reduction cream, gimmicky food restriction diets, juice fast, pills that promise things will all help you lose WATER WEIGHT and MUSCLE but will NOT help you lose fat….!

You have to SWEAT. I know what the magazines say. Long walks in the park, doing laundry and household chores, lifting your groceries are all exercise. I call BS. Unless you are working out with intensity and sweat you will not make changes to your body.

You have to do the work! Excuses or Solutions…YOU Decide

Are you ready to JUMP START your weight loss in a healthy, safe, long-term way? Then look HERE for women, HERE for men… all it takes is a good college try!!

Momma T is about to get in the 21 DAY FIX

The 21 day fix is here and I actually have my copy in my hand!!!!!  I felt like it was Christmas morning when I received my package!  I truly am beyond excited and stoked about this program.  I am absolutely loving P90X3 and I am getting great results but I am very curious about the portion sizes.  As a clean eater I really feel like I am eating the right types of foods but I always tend to over do it with the healthy foods!  So this is going to really help me to keep everything in check!  Also, the timing couldn’t be more perfect because we leave for our Beachbody Cruise in 36 days!!!

21 day fix

So I decided to put my P90X3 journey on a 21 day hold and commit to the next 21 days of this program and then I will come back and finish the last 30 days of X3 with my nutrition completely dialed in and ready to rock!

I spent Friday reading through the nutrition guide and understanding the plan.
Your container allowance per day is calculated based on your weight and the average of 400 calories burned per fix workout.  Then you are given a range you need to stay in!

For me, I am in the 1,200 to 1,499 calorie range! That gives me 3 green (veggies) 2 purple (fruits), 4 Red (protein) 2 Yellow (starchy carbs) 1 Blue (nuts, ect) 1 Orange (nuts and dressings) 2 spoons (nut butters, olive oil).  
21 day fix 2 days until

Then, each container is broken down in the manual with a list of foods that you can eat.  I love it because I can easily pick from each list and create a meal plan for the week.  I love that the foods are listed in order of importance. So the higher on the list the foods are the more nutritionally sound they are! Of course you should have a variety of foods from the lists to give you variety of nutrients for your body.

I have not been eating out of the containers, but I measure and pour onto my plate.  Surprisingly each time I do that I am amazed with how much food I am still eating.

You do get the option to drink milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut water, coconut milk and fruit juices but you have to sub out a yellow container and you are only allowed them 3x per week!  So it does make you re think your drink as well.  I tend to forgo the almond milk in my shake so that I can have the carb later in the day to keep my energy level up!  Also you can have a glass of wine but you give up a yellow container which is a carb for the day!  In my case, I would rather eat food than drink wine!  I get grumpy without food!  lol

How does Shakeology fit into this??  It is counted as a Red container which is a protein!  🙂  BONUS easy quick meal for me!

shakeology button

There are also treats allowed as well. They give you a list of treat ideas that replace a yellow container.

Recipes!  There are a list of seasoning mixes that you can whip up to prepare your food with!  There are container recipes for your veggies, protein and starchy carbs as well.  I love the recipes for your shakeology and the home made dressing recipes!!!

There is an awesome restaurant guide as well.  I like that they give you a list of restaurant foods and what containers that they will check off.  For example cheese and veggie pizza (1/4 of  12inch slice) is 2 yellow, 1 orange and 1 green!  In my opinion that would not be worth it to me!  I’m all about getting the most out of the foods that I eat!!!!  The one I would go with is lean meat tacos (soft corn) with cheese, lettuce, and salsa (2 tacos) is 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 green and 1 blue!
Now that is worth it and filling!

So now the hard part is figuring out how to keep track of all this and make it work for you!  Luckily we have made it easy for you!  On the Team Beachbody site there are tracking sheets that you can put your container allowance at the top and you can tally each meal of the day and check of what you have! This really gives you a visual to follow.

For me, I am the meal planner so I made myself a color coded excel spreadsheet where I plugged in exactly what I am going to eat for the week. Then along side of that I have my sheet of paper with my grocery list of things I need to pick up at the store.  This way when I am done with the meal plan I can print it off and stick it on the fridge, so I don’t forget what I am making.  Then, I shop so that I actually have the food I planned for! This makes my life so much easier.  No standing in front of the fridge each night wondering what to make!!!

Follow me for the next 21 DAYS and I’ll be posting all my workouts, meals, and progress!!

INCREDIBLE!!! If you would have told me in January that I would be in the list of the Top 500 BEACHBODY COACHES out of 130,000 COACHES…I would have told you that you might need medication!

It is so amazing that the work I do helping others is changing my own life, my path, my dreams, what I want, and who I want to become.

I’ll admit, I’ve had doubts. I’ve stopped and started. Life gets in the way. I sometimes take for granted the money I see adding up from residual sales and think I have so far to go to really “make it.”

But the reality is I work with a company that has my best interest at heart. I have the luxury of working with those I love dearly like Jeri Bagdons Sousa, Jayme Jones, Carrie Glenn, Pamela Blythe, Tom Sorenson, and Kristi L. Curtis. The focus of Beachbody is health and wellness oriented. They put all the science and research behind us to really offer something that will increase and improve your life span. And, I’m realizing… your bank account. Carl Daikeler & Jon Congdon were amazingly gracious when I met them in Las Vegas this year and set me on a path of total wholehearted belief in Beachbody and Ending the Trend of obesity!

problems v dreams

We have all been trained and lied to for years. There is no “golden years” when you bust your butt for 40-50 of them only to realize you still may have a passport you’ve never used, no legacy to leave your children, or dreams you’ve never reached.

I realized today I need to stop focusing so hard on what I haven’t done within this company to really enjoy what I HAVE DONE! My heart is so full in the lives I’ve seen changed. And today as I read my Elite Status report I was in shock and awe of how truly blessed I really am.

I started this with the intent of completing Insanity and getting my Shakeology paid for. Truth is… I did that within the first 60 days.
