Let’s chat about one of the most amazing programs that Beachbody has ever made. And guess what? I was honored to be chosen as a Corporate Test Group participant for this new workout and it blew me away! Tony Horton, the trainer who created the P90X series has put together this program that is only 22 minutes a day. And yes- that is LEGIT- 22 minutes a day start to finish and you can get AMAZING RESULTS and have ME as YOUR coach. As a military spouse, this program spoke to me in so many ways! And having my husband return from a deployment the last 3 weeks of this test group and join me in the workouts– he too is IMPRESSED with the basic training style workouts. It definitely reminds him of his PT mornings on the base!

CAN YOU REALLY GET RESULTS IN 22 MINUTES A DAY????

YOU BET YOU CAN!! Check out my results this far and you tell me if you can get results with this program!

My best tips:
This is all about committing to this program- focusing on the workout- giving it your all and following the nutrition plan that comes with the program. It is one of the easiest meal plans to follow and probably the most important of all of these things is having support and accountability from your Team BEACHBODY Coach {ME} and the rest of the challengers in the online support group. The secret sauce of this whole health and fitness journey is this: knowing that you are not the only one out there struggling, having a bad day, or a slip up with your nutrition. We share the journey together and are surrounded by like minded people who are on the same mission as you. And knowing that you have supportive people who have ‘got your back’ with this is icing on the cake! We are getting “bootcamp fit” with 22 Minute Hard Corps.

Let’s talk excuses for a minute too. After almost 3 years as a full time beachbody coach I have seen and heard them all… and first are foremost- I have USED nearly every excuse in the book before I started my journey too. So I am right there with you. Excuses are not reasons why you shouldn’t go all in and change your life. They are just the negative committee gathered in the back of your mind trying to fight the positive thoughts of getting out there and making CHANGE happen.

I am a mom of 2- a military wife to a man who deploys a LOT- we do not live anywhere near family- and the list goes on. When I started my journey 3 years ago I was 15 pounds overweight- anxiety filled- depressed and just miserable in my own life. I was a stay at home mom and again- alone a lot with a military husband. And I realized the only person who could make me feel better was ME. So I chose my HARD. I could choose to stay miserable- which is hard. OR I could choose to start a new journey of health and fitness- which was going to be hard too..

SO- you can see which HARD I CHOSE! And now- it’s EASY! And happiness is A BLESSING that I CHOSE to pursue!


WHAT DID I EAT DURING THIS PROGRAM??!!

Let me show you a few of my fave meals!!!
REAL FOOD.
REAL RESULTS.

If you want to get lean and stronger then this is for you! No matter what your ability level is you can modify to make the program a success for you. You can do anything that you put your mind too.

WHAT IS 22 MINUTE HARD CORPS LIKE?

So it was created by Tony Horton who also is the creator of P90X, P90X2, P90X3, Power 90 and more. It is a mixture of eight routines that alternate between total body cardio & resistance 1 workout a day for 6 days a week. The workout is fast paced and there is little rest. The workouts are easy to pick up and learn. You are moving from exercise to exercise quickly to maximize time and results. And then the last week you have an optional HELL WEEK that is going to SHRED YOU even more! Seriously- coolest workout ever!

 

 

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

You will need dumbbells or a sandbag. You will also need a pull up bar OR resistance bands with a door attachment. The harder you work the faster that you will start to see results.

I know you might be thinking that you can’t do this workout, but you CAN. It is for everyone. Trust me- I have spent the last 8 weeks doing this program and I have had to modify some and the strength that I have gained- both mentally and physically are incredible.
The program is 8 weeks in length, 6 days a week, 1 workout a day for 22 minutes! You will also have 3 days a week where you add a short ab workout and it is what has given me some ripped abs!! I KNOW THAT YOU CAN DO THIS!

What Is P90?

I have to tell you– I am so stinkin’ excited about the soon to be released Beachbody Home Fitness Program– P90. The awesome man himself, Tony Horton has done it AGAIN!!  He has put together another incredible workout series to get you toned, ripped and ready to crush your fitness/weight loss goals! When I first heard about this workout I was crazy excited!  Have you ever done P90X???  It is hard!!!  Have you ever tried P90X and failed?!?!  YOU ARE NOT ALONE!  Do you want to do P90X but you don’t feel like you are at that fitness level just yet?  Do you want a stepping stone to build a base level of fitness so that you can tackle something like P90X?
Tony saw the need for a program that was the foundational skills to advancing to a more extreme workout and he created P90!  He created it for people just like you and me!  We want to be in the best shape of our lives, but we need to start at the beginning and build core strength, stability and have correct form so that we don’t get injured and end up back at the start again!  It’s about creating a safe and effective starting point for people to introduce fitness into their lives.  It’s also a great way for people to conquer their fears of strength training and working out.

Who would this program be perfect for?

  • Someone who does not want a hardcore workout, but wants to lose weight.
  • Someone who wants to get back some of the muscle tone you’ve lost over the years. 
  • Someone who wants to get out of bed in the morning without a backache!
  • If you are just someone who wants to get healthy and add exercise to your routine!

So what is this program all about?

It’s not high intensity, its not pounding your joints.  It’s literally simple cardio, simple workouts, 25 minutes a day for 90 days to totally and completely transform your body and your life. It’s more than just a workout, it comes with a simple nutrition guide that is going to help you clean up your daily food intake and focus on the right foods to fuel your body for health!  The moves are modified right from day one so that everyone can do the workouts. 

So when will it be available?

Well the expected release date is September 23rd, 2014 through a Team Beachbody coach which is ME!  I am going to be leaving next Wednesday for the Team Beachbody Leadership Retreat in Scottsdale, Arizona and I will be getting more information on the workouts, the program, the options, the pricing and of course we will be sampling the workouts while we are there so I can bring you all of the juicy details next week!  Make sure to stay plugged into my instagram and facebook pages for rolling pictures of the event!


Are you READY to CHANGE?
I believe that if you want to change your body, you want to start creating a healthy exercise routine then this is going to be the best way to do it.  Tony Horton is an amazing trainer with an entire team behind his workout philosophy that is tried, tested and true.  I know he presents amazing fitness programs because I have done P90X, P90X2 and P90X3 and there is nothing short of amazing results from them all!


I know for a fact that this is truly going to be a spectacular workout.  I mean, heck you have SERIOUSLY no excuse not to workout.  There is something out there for everyone!  Sometimes we just need a little motivation in order to make it happen!

How Can I Be Sure I Get Results?!


How Do I Make Sure I Am THE FIRST TO GET IT?!?!

I want to make sure that this doesn’t become another fitness program that you invest in that sits on your shelf and collects dust.  I want to make sure that when you get the program in the mail, you bust it out, you make a plan and you SUCCEED!  My job as a coach is to be your support system, to help you to decipher the meal plan, to put a list of foods in place, to start together on October 6th and to track our progress, stay accountable, stay motivated and encourage one another to get into the best shape of our lives.

So I am hosting an EXCLUSIVE TEST GROUP where you can get support from a top coach, you can be surrounded by other like minded people, you can enter to win $500 for your transformation and you can get results.


What is a test group?

It is a closed Facebook group where no one but the members of the group can see what is being posted. I will walk you through how to set realistic goals for yourself, how to meal plan, prep, how to set yourself up for success, then each day you log into the group for a post of the day, motivation, recipes and tips.  We will track progress through our online group and you will succeed!  Trust me, if you commit I will meet you half way!  I won’t let you give up! Are you ready to put all fears aside and go for it?  What’s the worst that can happen? You could lose a few pounds, kick the soda habit and have a ton more energy!  Not so bad, right!!!!  —–>  The TEST GROUP!!!
