You may be wondering, why I am choosing to buy into Beachbody, now? At the end of the day, I love fitness and health but lately the health part of that has been slacking. I am looking for a program that will hold me accountable to my diet and fitness goals. I am not looking to try and lose weight, I just want to tone up so that as I enter half marathon season this fall, I am in the best shape possible to achieve my sub-2 half.
For 4 years now, Brian and I have had access to the Insanity fitness program by Beachbody. But never explored their further offerings. To be honest, I fast forwarded through their ads whenever I did one of the workouts. I assumed Shaun T was his own brand. But that wasn’t the case. In fact, he is part of a whole family of trainers.
When we got Insanity, Brian was looking for a way to stay active without having to go to a gym. It was the summer of 2013 and he had just finished his final year of college baseball. Now officially NARP (non-athletic regular person) status he wasn’t looking to get a gym membership in Buffalo, yet. This is where Insanity comes into play. Now, I have never actually been through the full schedule, when Brian did it I was still playing basketball. But his results were great.
Throughout that summer, Brian completed the whole system on his apartment building’s rooftop. Since then, we have incorporated it into our fitness routines regularly. Probably once a week (sometimes more, sometimes less). We have even done it at the beach on vacation!
As I started researching the full offerings of Beachbody everything from the fitness DVDs to the shakes, I knew what I really wanted to try was the On Demand service. At the end of the day, I do not need any more DVDs laying around and the On Demand platform can be taken with you on the go. You can play it anywhere there is a wi-fi connection.
Signing up for BOD (Beachbody On Demand is just as easy). I signed up originally with the All-Access Kickstart Challenge Pack because it gave me a year subscription to BOD (what I really wanted) and allowed me to try the greatest amount of the product including a month of Shakeology; as well as, the 3-Day Refresh.
Then I started researching the Beachbody coaching model. I thought, what a great way for me to help share my passion for fitness and health while getting healthy myself. I know one of the biggest things for me is staying accountable and sticking with a program. If I can build a team where doing my workouts others don’t want to miss theirs, together we can achieve our goals.
If you are interested in joining my team, having me as a coach (or if you would prefer Brian as your coach), or you have questions about Beachbody, send me at email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s achieve our goals together.
