Got Accountability?

I can think of two reasons why so may people like to workout in groups, or why so many people like having a workout buddy.  The first reason is that these people are looking for someone push them in their results, and the 2nd reason is that they are also looking for someone to be held accountable to.

But what are you going to do when you cannot find a workout buddy?

Enter the The Beachbody Challenge Group. The Challenge Group is a secret Facebook group of people going through the same program with the same start and end day. It is a place where the Challengers can post daily accountability, but it is also a place where the Challenger can get the support of a coach as well as the other challengers. It is very motivating to see an entire group of people change right before your eyes. The changes that take place motivate you to push yourself harder, which gives you better results, which inspires the other challengers to get better results.

I completed two rounds of P90x, but in my 2nd round I got into a Challenge Group led by a coach. I posted daily accountability as well as my worksheets (WHAT!?!?)…yeah…I posted worksheets. It is one thing to say you worked out, it is another thing entirely to post a picture of your worksheet.

If you want your results to go to the next level then commit to one of my Challenge Groups.   The only cost to enter the group is the food you will be eating for breakfast…that’s it. Once I have this commitment I am after your SUCCESS STORY. We start working on your nutrition down to the calorie targets, macros, and meal planning based on your specific goals (simple weight loss, toning up, shredding up, bulking up). Then we pick a workout program like P90x, Body Beast, Chalean Extreme (or some unique hybrid) that works for you and your schedule and the equipment you have available or that you can obtain. You workout on your own time and then make daily posts to your Challenge Group.  This is a system that works. It is how I got my results. It is impossible to fail at your goals if you make the commitment.

In addition to this service, I make sure all of my Challengers are motivated, and on track to complete their respective programs, but also entered into the The Beachbody Challenge where they will get a program completion shirt (that cannot be purchased). Entering the Beachbody Challenge also gives my clients a chance to win some money and have their story featured on Beachbody’s website.

I will remove all of your excuses for reaching your goals. I will help you change your life.

Body Beast Transformation – Aaron C.

For everyone that does not believe that a 20 lb gain is possible in 90 days, let me introduce you to Aaron C.  Day, after day, after day I have seen Aaron post his Body Beast worksheets to his Facebook Challenge Group, and week after week after week, Aaron’s weekly accountability pictures kept showing the results of his hard work.

There’s nothing magical here.  There is no secret.  You just do 6 simple things per day.  Workout, and eat 5 times.  Do this and your incremental improvements will compound over time.  Whether you are bulking up, or simply losing weight.  You will not go hungry.  You will not eat weird foods.  I will ask you to eat a balanced diet which WILL INCLUDE carbs.  Carbs are good for you..just ask Aaron, as 50% of all his calories over the last 90 days came from carbs on a 3000+ calorie diet.

I have just decided that if you want something bad enough you will find a way to get it.  I talk to many people who just make excuses for why they do not have results…why they are quitting, or why they will not start, why they did not get out of bed, why they did not go to bed earlier…or why they cannot do in one year, what Aaron just did in 90 days.  These same people will try to label the ones who are making efforts…

No Regrets!

About this time last year I was watching a lot of P90x success story videos on You Tube trying to convince myself that I could do it.  Like many of you reading this I had tried and failed the program.  I decided after a long You Tube viewing session that there are just too many success stories out there that prove that the Beachbody solution works.  I have just crossed my one year Anniversary since making the decision to change my life.  DECIDE, COMMIT, and you will SUCCEED.

Body Beast Modification

While doing the Bulk Back Workout tonight I modified the Reverse Grip Bent Over Rows with the T-bar row with low row attachment handle. (170 lbs). Just another way to modify Body Beast if you have barbells. I love this movement. I used to do a lot of T-bar rows in high school and college.  Weighing in at 192 lbs tonight.

Accountability

Merry Christmas!!  I don’t know about you guys, but is anyone else getting tired of seeing the “Elf on a Shelf” pictures floating around facebook and the internet?  I think it’s time for that little dude to BEAST UP!  That way he might be more effective in his duties of keeping my kids straight!

Tour of my weight room (with buying advice)

weight_roomI could not have completed Body Beast without my Beast Cave!  I started collecting weights when I was 16 years old making minimum wage at a sandwich shop.  Back then I had my weights in my Parent’s basement, and I wanted to upgrade that weight room, but was told no.  Which I am very thankful for since, as started telling myself that if I ever got to the point in life to own a house I would have a basement and a dedicated weight room.  In fact it was one of my very few requirements for getting a house, along with making my wife happy of course.   This video just let’s you step into my man cave for a bit and you’ll here how I went about furnishing my weight room.
