I’d like to try that…

If you’ve read my prior posts you know that while once a skeptic I am now 100% a Shakeology advocate. It delivered on it’s promises of being nutritious (and delicious), and more importantly it CRUSHED my craving for garbage food. To know that it is doing that while not only giving my body the recommended nutrition it needs but arming me with probitoics, phytonutrients and exotic superfoods that boost my health even more moved me from thinking about Shakeology as pricey to seeing it as an incredible value. Clever little video short talking about it here:

Shakeology Value

Shakeology Value

Don’t misunderstand; I realize that it’s quite a commitment to make when you first add Shakeology to your regiment. I also know that it DELIVERS. My results have been incredible, and I’m on my way to size 34 pants and shorts from a size 42. Did I mention that’s after 73 days? I’m not there yet, but am quite confident that I will make it to size 32 before the year’s end. For me, that’s better than high school.Ok, enough testimonial. How would you like to try a single serving pack on me? I have a limited supply of single serve packs I can send out as samples, but if you leave a comment or email me I would be happy to introduce you to what made a dramatic change for me. Take your second chance on fitness and hit the reset button. What do you wish you had started a year ago to be benefiting from now? What could you start today that would move you to your goals a year from now? Take the first step!

How Are Your Workouts Working Out?

 

Whether you get excited when you begin a new workout routine, or if  you dread what you might be in for it is critical to remember why you are engaging in the training of your body. If you want to maximize the results you can achieve from your workout, follow a couple of simple steps to get the results you want:

  1. Consistency –  Remember, nothing happens overnight. Your investment in training your body to learn and practice the workout (even when you’re crazy sore) will get you past that initial soreness in the first two weeks and help you acclimate to the demands of the workout on your body. It will get better 🙂
  2. Participation –  If need be, slow the pace down and at least keep yourself active for the entirety of your workout. Better to do push-ups from your knees than not at all. If a particular exercise is too demanding, at least run/jog/walk in place to keep your heart rate up until an exercise you can participate in comes on. Again, in time you will be able to do more and more. Just stay with it, and don’t give up!
  3. Balance –  Working out gives you the opportunity to be good to the outside of your body. If you are to get the full benefit from your workout you must balance this with eating right and being good to the inside of your body. Don’t sabotage yourself! Shakeology gives you a huge advantage in this regard, and be sure to familiarize yourself with the eating guide provided in your workout.

How Necessary is Nutrition?

When I first planned to lose weight, I figured I would simply apply the formula I knew would work. I would simply ensure that I burned more calories than I took in. The problem with that is I gave no attention to where the calories I received would be coming from, and worse yet my body would not necessarily feel “full” because it was not receiving the nutrients it craved. The led to some really bad cycles, and wondering how I could make so little progress in weight loss. I used workouts as an excuse to treat myself to whatever I wanted to eat. It did not take long to discover that I was easily able to “undo” whatever benefits I benefits I would get from my workouts.

When I joined my first challenge group, I learned that 70% – 80% of my visible results would be directly related to my nutrition. What was the question again? How important is nutrition? About 3 to 4 times as important as your workout. The good news is that if you have coupled Shakeology together with your workout program, you are poised for tremendous success in your fitness goals!

What’s a Challenge Group?

Simply put, a challenge group is a support group that helps participants not only achieve fitness goals, but increase knowledge and awareness of exactly what is involved in being truly fit. It is designed to expose you to a lifestyle that enables you to maintain the results you get. It is run by a lead coach or a group of coaches who are looking to invest in you to help you get the results you want.

Check out this video

Participants in challenge groups have purchased challenge packs or have in their possession a TBB workout system and Shakeology. The concept is simple; you give your body the nutrients it needs through Shakeology which helps you stay true to an eating plan that gives you the results you are looking for. Combine that with one of the powerful workouts from Team Beach Body, and you have a trifecta of resources at your disposal for fitness success.

So where does the group come in? The support of the group truly galvanizes individuals together to give accountability, encouragement, and tips to one another for the purpose of strengthening resolve and commitment levels when the going gets tough. You will make friends and come to appreciate that there are others who have struggled with weight loss and fitness just like you.

While there is plenty of serious time in the group, there is also a lot of fun! Wacky Wednesdays, Flex Fridays, and random challenges within the group help remind you that you are doing this challenge to enhance your physical well-being, and possibly to even take your life back.

Interested in joining a challenge group? Shoot me a message or an email and we can talk through your motivations for wanting to be part of the group. We are looking for people who have a strong commitment level to the success they seek. If we are in agreement that you are ready for a challenge group, we can discuss what options would best serve you reaching your goals.
