Hey there!!! I have some exciting news and if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you saw that yesterday was a really exciting day!!! Like! Guys!! I can’t wait to share with you what is in store for 2017!!!
Team Beachbody launched a brand new option for customers and coaches called the All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack. It is crazy to think that streaming is THE NEW THING. And just a few years ago- streaming was really brand new, people still had DVD/VCR combos and everything was moving in a DVD fashion. I remember every weekend Dustin and I would rent a movie from redbox and then end up paying for an extra day or two because we would forget to take it back! Or decide to just keep it for an extra night to watch it again!! Those days are gone now!! With downloads and streaming- everything is turning digital. And this homebody is A OKAY with that!! You can pull up netflix or Amazon Prime or On Demand and you are good to go right from your couch. Times really have changed!
Are you wondering why in the world I am talking about this?!! Well, I have a point! I swear!!!! Fitness is CHANGING TOO!!!! It is still the same process to getting healthy and feeling your best. You have to put in the work to get the results and there is no quick fix. But, there are now more options than ever to have access to the tools that can help you achieve the look and feel that you want! Team Beachbody came into my life 9 years ago!! When I picked up p90x right after I had my first daughter so I could do something at home while she napped to help me lose the baby weight.!! Have you heard of that program? It seriously kicked my BUTT and it totally changed my life. Every afternoon during nap time or evening after we would put Lolah to bed- Dustin and I would go to the garage- pop in the DVD and workout in our little one car garage. I learned how to eat clean through the program guide and the online gym that Beachbody provides. I didn’t have a coach at that time!! But once I did find out about coaching and found that community- the whole process was even better!! I found support in other moms that were struggling to lose weight post pregnancy, juggle mom life and still find time for themselves. I was forever changed because of the relationships built P90X, Clean Eating and Shakeology. I know that the model of Team Beachbody Challenge groups work! I know that it is MY secret sauce and while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea it truly did and still does work for me and my family.
I am thankful that Beachbody is innovate and is constantly thinking about how they can provide the utmost support & accountability to their customers and coaches. I love that Beachbody didn’t dig in their heels and resist the change in times but instead embraced that our world is moving more digital and they have created this incredible Beachbody On Demand platform and all the programs that it includes for us to get results.
So yesterday the CEO of Team Beachbody Carl Daikeler announced a new option for anyone to take advantage of. The Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership which provides total access to every program available on Beachbody ON Demand, plus future releases. So that means that every single program Beachbody has ever created from P90X, Turbofire, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer to new ones like Cize, T25, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer and Chisel, Insanity Max30, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, Core De Force and more are on a digital library you can access plus anything new that Beachbody releases you get INSTANT access at no additional charge for an entire 12 months. That is incredible!!!! Starting on December 27th you will be able to purchase either an annual membership or the Annual All Access Beachbody On Demand + Shakeology Challenge Pack. This is an incredible opportunity for me to help you get even better results.
Why do I love the All Access Challenge Pack?!! Because it gives you:
1 Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included, plus future releases.
Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on home direct)
Portion Fix (includes 7 piece portion control container system, eating guide, large blue container and shaker cup)
Business Starter Kit Waived if you choose the coach enrollment option.
You get all of this for $199 for the entire year (12 months) and there is no monthly fee.
The points I listed above is worth over 6,000 dollars and for 12 months you are getting access to everything that Beachbody has ever created plus anything new through the year. That is awesome but the real reason I am excited is this. You can purchase this pass and together we can choose to start with for example, 21 Day Fix. You can complete 21 Days of the program, at the end of the 21 days we can have a discussion around what program you are going to do next. What your goals are, what you have already accomplished and how we can help to tweak your plan to get you results. Maybe after the 21 day fix you decide you want to add in more cardio. We can move over to T25 or Core De Force as the next program. Or let’s say you have an injury that is preventing you rom completing the 21 Day Fix, we can switch programs and move over to the 3 week yoga retreat until you are feeling well enough to go back to your T25 workout. The key here is options that help YOU achieve YOUR goals. We can mix, match, tweak and change your plan so that you do not lose steam, you do not get bored and YOU get the results that you want.
let’s learn to love ourself for who we are. okay?!
Each fitness program through BOD has the calendar of workouts and what to do when. Each program has a nutrition guide you can download, tracking sheets and you have me to help walk you through the program to make sure you are getting the results that you want. This is not about just starting and completing 1 program, it is about moving through each stage of your journey and entering into a lifestyle of proper nutrition and fitness.
I love this option because it gives you flexibility and creativity. But the most important part of this whole thing is the SUPPORT! Sure, anyone can just buy a program but where you see most people getting results is when they have a community of support around them helping them to get results! That is where the magic truly happens!
I used to be that girl that went to the gym, that bought the membership on January 1st and VOWED that this year would be the year I would make a change. I truly did have good intentions, but by the end of January I would find myself making excuses, eating pizza or burgers from a drive thru after my workouts and frustrated with my results. I would always just say that I deserved to eat whatever I wanted because I worked out- but that was not the case at all. It doesn’t matter how awesome the gym membership is. If you don’t know what to do when you get there, it is going to be wasted time and money for you.
So this year is your year! If you are like me and you need structure, support, guidance and accountability then Beachbody might be your magic ticket. I didn’t like working out in public, I enjoy my own home space, and I like that I can workout when it works for me and around my kids’ schedules.
I am inviting you to take advantage of the All Access Pass and make me your coach! Let me help you set some new goals to achieve your healthy and fulfilling life. Whether you want to be a part of my accountability and support groups or not I am here to help.
I am kicking off my next group called the NEW YEAR- NEW BOD Health Bet Challenge (get it 😉 hehe! Beachbody On Demand) on January 2nd through the Beachbody Challenge Tracker App. You will set realistic and achievable goals, log your workouts, your nutrition and Shakeology daily through our app based program and I will be there 24/7 to provide support, accountability, guidance, recipes and meal planning to make this a lasting lifestyle change.

I don’t know about you but I have been waiting very patiently for the launch of Team Beachbody’s newest home fitness program, CORE DE FORCE. It’s a mixed martial arts inspired total body transformation program. This program is created by former Les Mills instructors, Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews. They created a 30 program that requires ZERO equipment to really transform your entire body. There is a very simple to follow meal plan using the portion fix container system, plus the workouts are all 25-45 minutes in length. Anyone can do the program, regardless of your ability level. There is a great modifier in each workout.
I had the honor of being the first to get the entire program as a coach last week at the Team Beachbody Leadership event and I am currently finishing up my first week of the workouts and meal plan. You can check out my progress and see my meal plan on my blog here.
I am loving the program and I can’t believe that after 3 years of working out and eating clean that I can still get some killer muscle soreness! I think you are going to love it too. Plus it really is coming at the perfect time. We ALL need a little extra accountability over the holiday months!
So if you are interested in the program I have a few options for you!
#1 I highly recommend that you join me in my Core De Force Test Launch Group which will start on the 7th of November. In this group I will basically walk you through everything you need to know about the program. How to navigate the meal plan, I will give you recipes, tips, daily accountability and support so that you start and finish the program to get the results that you want. Does this sound like something you would like to do?
Here are the requirements:
1. I must be your Team Beachbody Coach. If you aren’t sure then click here: Join as a Team Beachbody Customer of Val Bozzo!!
2. To join the challenge group you must commit to the entire program for 30 days, the nutrition plan and 30 days of Shakeology. The best bang for your buck is to get the Challenge pack because it gives you all the tools you need, plus an extra DVD with an entire workout called the MMA Mashup, plus discounted price and shipping! It also gives you exclusive access into my personal 1:1 mentoring support group where you will have others and myself to keep you on track daily.
If you would like to sign up as a coach on my team then you can do so at this time and get your $40 coach sign up fee waived, get the challenge pack and then receive 25% off all additional purchases you order from Team Beachbody. You have the choice to actively pursue coaching at this time or in the future and take advantage of my team trainings or you can remain a loyal preferred customer as long as you would like. There is no commitment required and you can change or cancel at any time with no fees.
To sign up as a coach with Core De Force: Here is the coach sign up link.
All of these links will be LIVE by 2:00 pm PST which is 5:00 pm EST. So if you log in early and try to click the links and they do not work that means that the program hasn’t gone live yet!! So don’t panic you will be able to get your copy!
It will also be available to you within 24 hours in Beachbody On Demand. When you get a challenge pack you get access free for 30 days! So you can actually start downloading the nutrition guide, program manual and start planning your workouts before you receive your physical copy. So exciting right!
ONCE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE so that I can make sure that everything goes through ok and add you to the group and get you up and running.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all!
If you do not wish to participate in my support and accountability group and would just like to purchase the program separately you can do that on November 1st at 12:30 pm PST or earlier.
Here are your options:
If you would like more information on Core De Force and My Test Group here is a few places to get the details:
Week 1 was a SUCCESS!!!! And now we are on to week 2!!! I am still sore! My muscles are hurting, but in the best way because I know that I am working so hard! I am 100% committed to my workouts and my nutrition!! This week I get to add an extra fruit to each day! And when I can add food, it’s a good day!!
So far, I have zero complaints! I am really enjoying the kicking, punching, push ups, ab work (HOLY CRAPOLA- I thought I had strong abs… I might have been wrong after this!!) Of course I will post some videos below of some of the moves and also my meal plan for this week!! It’s short and sweet!! And I LOVE it all!!
THIS PROGRAM IS FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DO THE WORK! There is a MODIFIER who breaks down all of the moves, does them slower and there is no jumping or high impact! And yes, you will get great results modifying too!! Or for those of you who like to pretend you’re fighting off bad guys– go all out 😉 lol!! Because that’s what I do. Pretend I’m saving the world!
AND- my HUBBY is IN ON THIS 100%!!!! We took our before pics last week and we are rockin’ and rollin!! I’m proud of my dude!!! He is COMMITTED!!!!
Can I please take a minute to SCREAMMMM from the top of my lungs how VITAL eating the proper foods and portions is for your body, mind and results!!! If you are planning to do the workout, but not change your eating habits, then sorry to say– you’re not going to have much change! I used to be that girl who seriously would pop in the workout or go to the gym, but never pay attention to the meal plan that came with it.
I had many reasons WHY I didn’t do it. Here are a few:
It looked really hard.
Eat 5-6 times a day? no way.
I didn’t even know how to pronounce some of the foods! SO I just had a bad taste in my mouth…
I thought that since I was working out I could just eat whatever I wanted to eat.
I really just thought I could out workout a bad diet.
I THOUGHT I was eating healthy (WRONG. omg. WRONGGGG.)
Basicallly, when i finally just got to my breaking point because my stomach was hanging over my pants, I was pulling at my shirt NONSTOP so it wouldn’t saran wrap itself onto my stomach pudge, I was DISGUSTED when I looked at myself in the mirror, I didn’t want my hubby to see me naked, I basically just loathed what I saw in myself… I thought.. OKAY- well apparently working out alone isn’t doing CRAP… so i have to start making other changes.
FOOD is where the results or lack there of come from !!! SO LET’S WORK TOGETHER ON IT!!
Are you ready to join a challenge group with me?!! Are you ready for some RESULTS?!!
We are kicking off TWO CHALLENGE GROUPS THIS MONTH!! YES! TWO!!!!
November 7th and November 28th!!! Are you READY to join me and allow me to coach you to YOUR goals?!!!
FILL OUT THE APPLICATION BELOW AND LET’S GET YOU STARTED ON YOUR OWN TRANSFORMATION!
I have to say that I am pretty much OVER THE MOON EXCITED because I was able to get the BRAND NEW Core De Force Workout Program a WEEK EARLY!! It officially launches on November 1st!! But as one of the top coaches in the company, for the first time ever, Team Beachbody allowed an early release to us! Not too shabby, right?!! AND!! I got a signed copy of the program!! Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews totally went above and beyond to sign the program for us!! We also got to do 3 LIVE CORE DE FORCE workouts in Coronado last week!! That was so freakin’ awesome!!
Core De Force Live Workout with Joel and Jericho!
So what does this mean??!! Well- it means that I wrapped up P90X3 after month 2 🙁 I’m sad about not finishing the full 90 days!! BUT It is so important for me to do the launch programs to show you guys just how incredible each and every workout program is and let’s be real- I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one! I LOVE MMA style workouts and since this one was inspired by MMA moves- i’m all in!!
SO I started yesterday!!! Here is a preview of a mashup of day 1!! MMA SPEED!! I really loved it and I am definitely sore today after all of the moves!! It was barely 25 minutes and each round was only 3 minutes!! So it went really fast and I was for sure sweaty! If you want to learn more about this program- CLICK HERE!
Day 2 was today and DANG!! It was a lot of upper body work and I LOVED IT! Different variations of push ups and core work! YES PLEASE! Im honestly sore! Which is a good thing! And i’ve been on track with my meal plan too! Drinking water as I type this!
NOW! Let’s chat about the nutrition plan that comes with it! I swear- you cannot expect to feel your best, get great results or see changes if you don’t follow the nutrition plan! It is really easy to follow and not only is it all laid out for you in detail with your program kit, but if you join my challenge group with me as your coach then we customize the meal plan and focus on your triggers, what makes you want to just eat whatever and how we can work together at changing your mindset to understand that food doesn’t control you! You control it! And we get to trick our minds into thinking that the healthy meals taste like cheats 😉 Because I definitely love to take recipes and put a healthy spin on them while still tasting great!!!
What does the nutrition plan look like?!
Well! There are 4 Plans!! So have no fear! There is something for everyone!!
Step 1: We are going to figure out your calorie target!
What is your current weight then multiply that by 11 and that’s your starting point for calories.
You then take your calorie starting point and add 400 because that’s what you’re going to burn with each workout so that is reflecting your maintenance calories.
Then, take your maintenance calories and subtract 750 calories to give you a deficit and that’s your calorie target.
Then you’re going to figure out which category you will stick to based on that number!!
Let me add that you NEVER want to dip below 1200 calories! That will set your body into starvation mode! So the lowest bracket you will go is Plan A!
For me personally: I am in Plan A which means that I will eat:
3 servings of veggies a day
2 servings of fruit a day
4 servings of protein a day
2 servings of carbs per day
1 serving of healthy fat per day
1 serving of seeds/dressing per day
2 servings of oils/nut butters per day
NOW! Once you have this figured out you want to create a meal plan! The first few times I did that it was SO HARD for me! Like literally it caused me anxiety trying to plan out a weeks worth of meals!! But, it was because it was out of my comfort zone and I had never done it before! After a few times, it got easier and now it is part of my routine! And it saves me at least 8-10 hours in the kitchen each week because I prep the things that I can do on one day each week vs. making each meal individually each day!
Core De Force Meal Plan A
SAMPLE DAY OF EATING:
Breakfast: Plain Greek Yogurt with Berries (1 Red, 1 Purple)
Mid Afternoon Snack: Shakeology with 1 tsp of almond butter (1 Red, 1 tsp.)
Dinner: Grilled Chicken, Steamed Green Beans and a Baked Sweet Potato with cinnamon (1 Red, 1 Green, 1 Yellow)
Remember: Food is FUEL! You are supposed to keep your body filled with proper nutrients! it revs up metabolism, stops the cravings and makes you feel better!! Stay away from processed foods, sugars and too many carbs!! Try to stick with WHOLE FOODS! A great resource is the Whole 30 book! I am using it in my own modified way and I really love it!!
