I usually start off my weekly check-in with a little bit about how things are going for me. This week I am flipping the script and putting some team members in the spotlight who were graciously willing to share their success story with the rest of the team. It has been an awesome journey not only for those mentioned below, but for all of the other team members that have been part of the team.
A P90X grad, I met up with Joel through WOWY on the TeamBeachbody.com site and he was really excited to get going. After just a few conversations with Joel, I knew that he was going be a great fit with our team and he did not disappoint. He was such a great motivational and comical addition to our group! Here is a look at what he was able to accomplish in his 90 days! Awesome job Joel!

Quote: “The keys to a successful program and lifestyle are fitness, nutrition, and support. Chris excels in all three with sound advice and motivation.”
This was his first venture into P90X. He was an animal, some days putting in 2-3 workouts! By the end of his 90 day journey, Chris’ experience with our team lead him decide to become a coach himself. I am glad to have him not only a part of the team in general, but also a part of the coaching team!

When I first approached Ernie about the challenge group he was intrigued, but not sure what was involved. Once I explained to him the concept and how to get started, he was all in and excelled. Ernie looks like a new man and from recent conversations with him, he FEELS like a new man as well.

Quote: “I haven’t had heartburn or had to chew an antacid once in the past 90 days…I think the diet change & maybe Shakeology had the biggest impact on this. I had been going through a 150-count bottle of antacid tablets about once per week for the past 20 years. This change is HUGE for me.”
You might not know this about Sandy, but she is actually my mother! I have seen her perform the P90X program for about 1 ½ years, until about she injured her shoulder and required surgery. She worked hard to get her shoulder strength to its previous level. I’d say she has done that and even more. Way to go Mom!!!
Robert is married to Sandy from above. I have had the pleasure to work out with him on numerous occasions when they come to visit. He has also been doing P90X off and on for the past couple of year and is getting primed to start P90X2 later this month.

Bonus Ab Routine
Over the past couple of weeks I had been playing around with some extra Ab work…I am kind of obsessed I think. I found a routine that, while I can’t take credit for coming up with, I wanted to share with the team.
Here is the intro to the article:
“While I love the ab routines that are part of the P90X and P90X2 programs, I am always looking for some ways to mix things up a bit in the Ab department. We all know that if were to stick with lifting the same weights in the gym every time, our bodies would hardly change. This is due to it adapting to that stimuli, hence the need for “muscle confusion”.”

Let’s help others and pay it forward!
How many of you have/know someone that you think would benefit from being a part of this group? We all probably know SOMEONE that may be struggling with health and fitness. If you think you know someone, even if it is just one person, let me know and let’s get them plugged in. A little friendly competition is always beneficial to those involved.
Got a question?
I also wanted to make sure that everyone on my team is aware that I am here for YOU! If you have ANY questions related to health and fitness, don’t hesitate to contact me directly either on Facebook or via email (email@example.com). I am always willing to provide feedback and suggestions on ways that you can get the results that you are after.
And 2 favors that I ask:
1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them. Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc. It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!
2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, www.yourfitnesspath.com, or by logging in to www.teambeachbody.com to do your shopping (If you buy from the plain beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out.
Thank you! I really appreciate it!
Keep bringing it and inspiring others to do the same gang!!
