New Years Challenge Groups Starting Soon

About to shed some of this holiday weight with X3. Anyone want to join me? This hat that I am wearing comes with your P90X3 DVD ONLY until December 31st. Some of the “X3 Crew” did not want to wait until the new year and have already started…and the posted calorie burns are mind blowing. I’m seeing 500+ calories burned from Jason Butler in a 30 minute X3 workouts. The start date of this Test Group is Monday January 6th so their is plenty of time.

Send me an e-mail to or add and message me on Facebook and let’s start working on your goals.

Not sure what program is best for you? Then let’s talk! I have clients losing weight just walking, and clients losing weight doing Crossfit. I don’t care if you like to hopscotch daisy’s because we will find a program for you. As always, I work personally with all my clients on nutrition specific to their goals (simple weight loss, fat loss, bodybuilding) and hold them accountable in my private Facebook Groups. This is the system that I am a product of a system that IS CHANGING LIVES.

P90X3 Robert X3 Results

P90X3 is Here! Accelerate Your Training!

Have you ever wished P90x was only 30 minutes? Especially the Yoga? Well P90X3 is the answer you have been waiting for. Let me be clear in that P90X3 is not a graduate program. In other words you can start fresh even if you have never completed P90X3. There are 16 total workouts with 4 different schedules of the program. Want to get fit? Shed Fat? Maybe Bulk Up? No problem…there is a plan for all those goals. From now until the end of December. All P90X3 orders from a coach will get an exclusive premium P90X3 Hat ($24.95 value) – December Only! 

Free Hat With Purchase!


I will host an online support group for my P90x3 Customers starting in January. Become one of the DEDICATED to get results like those in the Success Stories Tab, and based on what I am seeing our team members do in just 25 minutes a day with Focus T25, I believe the 30 minute results of P9X3 will be shocking! I will contact you upon your order about the P90X3 Challenge Group. Also feel free to e-mail me at for more information. I work with my customers on goal setting, accountability, nutrition and support throughout their fitness programs.

Praying for the Philippines (Super Typhoon Haiyan)

I married a beautiful woman born in the Philippines and had a chance to travel to Manila and later spend a week on the Island of Cebu in the Summer of 2011. Some of the most humble, hospitable, and happy people I have ever met in my life live in the Philippines.  Everywhere we went…people were smiling…no matter the circumstance.

I can’t imagine how Cebu is at the moment though I have seen some pictures come through the news feeds and through Facebook.   A slideshow of our trip to the Philippines is below. Many in this video are affected by the Typhoon. Lost roofs, broken windows, rain soaked belongings…so far as I know, our family members are safe, but they are not without losses. A majority of these images in this video below were taken on the Island of Cebu…a beautiful place.  Praying for the Philippines.

Hulk Status Achieved

It is always good to have a goal to work towards, and Halloween is a great excuse to get in shape for your costume.  All I needed for my costume was a mask, the official Body Beast Hoodie, and some Green Paint!  My two little Beasts are in training, but they will rock the green paint one day.  Happy Halloween!



Marcus B. – P90x Transformation

Need to give a shout-out to another Dedicated Republic team member for his impressive P90x Transformation. Marcus Billie, welcome to the 40 lb club!

Round 1 Start: 260 lbs
Round 1 End: 220 lbs

Marcus contacted me after he saw my P90x Transformation on YouTube. And I’m so glad he did, because I love talking to people who are driven and who know exactly what they want. Marcus wanted to drop 20 lbs in his first round of P90x…and he did it in only 6 weeks! This is not uncommon at all with P90x and most people tend to hit realistic weight loss goals in the first 2 months, but unfortunately many become content as they never expected to make it that far. I explained this phenomenon to Marcus and challenged him to set a new goal for the remaining 6 weeks of P90x, so what did he do? Marcus decided to drop 20 more pounds and the result is what you see below.

Some people just want it more than others…that is all I can say. Do you guys want to know what it’s like to start a 2nd round of P90x? All you have to do is look at the expression on his face in the after picture. It says “I got this!” No more guesswork on the diet as Marcus is already dialed in. He’ll move into the world of 10 reps and is already wide back will just keep getting wider.

The Beast will be unleashed by the end of his 2nd round…and everyone in his Challenge Group is rooting him on. DO WORK SON!!

Gina D. – T25 Transformation (Alpha and Beta)

“If I quit smoking I’ll gain weight…” is just another excuse that the LAZY use to describe the DEDICATED. I have to congratulate one of the Dedicated Republic team members, Gina D. on being 8 weeks smoke free! Not only did Gina quit smoking during her journey with Focus T25, she lost just over 10 lbs and over 14 inches along the way! Did I mention she completely transformed her body?! Check out her transformation below!


Focus T25 Transformation - Gina D
Gina had the support and accountability of my T25 Challenge Group. It’s amazing what can happen inside a Challenge Group. Early on Gina admitted she was trying to quit smoking and then we found out that other members of this group were trying to quit as well, and then other members of the group mentioned that they have recently quit. It’s amazing how the shared experience from others of various ages and backgrounds from around the United Sates and Canada can provide support in your journey. Everyone seems so different, they all have a common goal of self improvement. It takes discipline and consistency to produce results like Gina achieved. You can achieve so much more than weight loss, you can literally change your life!


“Included with thGinae T25 Challenge Pack, I started drinking Shakeology for breakfast everyday, and lunch on the weekends, generally, and really watched my calories. It was with the help of my coach, Robert Broussard, that I really got my nutrition in check. He helped me calculate my calorie goal/day and pit falls to watch out for in my diet. He also placed me in his Dedicated Republic Fall Challenge Group. It is here I met so many people on the same journey I am on, and they really kept me motivated. We checked in everyday and pushed each other and called each other out and supported each other. This group is really like another family to me, and I am forever grateful for the benefits of being in a challenge group. After 11 weeks, I had to delay a week due to a death in the family and traveling, I can say I am literally in the best shape of my life and feel amazing. I will continue to drink Shakeology everyday, mainly for me because I make them sweet and it satisfies my sweet tooth in a healthy way, I will always be running and part of a challenge group so I can continue to be influenced by others’ amazing journeys and be motivated to continue on mine, and I will start my next program as soon as it arrives, Focus T25 Gamma phase. I have never loved to workout, but my body desires it; my body desires to be healthy.” – Gina

Halloween Superheroes!

My family and I usually dress as a theme for Halloween.   We started this tradition 2 years ago when we dressed as characters from The Cat in the Hat.  Last year we dressed as characters from Thomas the Train, and this year we plan to dress as Superheroes, and I’m definitely trying to do my part!  I have been bulking for a few months and now I’m starting to my cut.  Now I just need to find some green body paint…

Leadership Conference

I had the pleasure to spend the weekend in Dana Point, California after being invited to Beachbody’s yearly leadership conference.  I am really excited about the coming year. There were a couple of huge announcements, including a new 21 day fitness program called 21 Day Fix coming out in February 2014, I had the pleasure to workout to one of the workouts with trainer Autumn Calabrese (seen below) and we also heard more details of P90X3 coming out in this December. I’m really pumped that Beachbody is moving towards 30 minute workouts as both P90X3 and the new 21 Day Fix involve 30 minute workouts.

I love working with a company that is so focused on nutrition and providing the best possible programs that produce REAL RESULTS.  The 21 Day Fix will take nutrition to another level.  This is a program designed to produce fast results.  Have a weddding coming up?  Vacation or cruise in the very near future and you delayed getting in shape for it?  Well I would encourage you to give 21 Day Fitness a try when it comes out next February…should get you in shape just in time for Spring Break!

Phillip M. – P90x Transformation

I would like to welcome Phillip M. to the 25 lb club! He lost 28 lbs in his first round of P90x. Phillip was a consistent member of his Challenge Group, posting his worksheets each day along with his crazy calorie burns on Kempo X!

I can’t help but look at this transformation and think of someone I know. The start weight, the end weight, the body type, all remind me of my first round of P90x. Which is pretty cool because Phillip will start his 2nd round on Monday and enter the world of 10 reps, where he will have what I call “10 rep problems” which include having to buy heavier weight. I really enjoyed 10 reps though…no more having to feel rushed because Tony and the others are doing 8 reps, and it just feels good to lift heavier weight!

Going into your 2nd round of P0x is a lot of fun because now know what to expect. No more surprises in Yoga, Warrior 3 starts to become obtainable (at least for me), ad it’s really cool to look back over your worksheets from day 1 to day 90 and see how far you have come, then you can just imagine would it would be like to see that kind of improvement AGAIN!

Well done Phillip! I look forward to see how you progress in your 2nd round!

Successful People Find a Way

I hear so many excuses from people talking about why they can’t make a change in their life. I just want to show everyone what in an inspiring person has been doing to achieve a fitness goal. Previous attempts at P90x and Body Beast have been unsuccessful do to previous injuries flaring up, so I asked this person, “What CAN you do?” The response I got, “I love riding my bike.”

You just need to be at a deficit in calories to lose weight, and riding a bike is one of many ways to burn calories. Nutrition is also key in reaching fitness goals, but so is consistency. Daily tracking in fitness and nutrition can ensure that weekly goals with weight loss are obtained, but you must track them. The image below was recently posted in one of my Support Groups to show everyone how one can lose weight from simply riding a bike around the neighborhood. If it sounds simple, it is because it is. Weight loss is just a numbers game. The image below shows the work of an individual who refuses to quit, who will not give up. Successful people find a way.
