This is it! TeamChiseledBranches is launching it’s first few 2014 Challenge Groups! If you are reading this, then chances are good that you have already made the decision to maximize your time and effort spent on fitness by taking on a Beachbody program. We’ve all viewed numerous transformations online, or in some cases witnessed them in person – but now it’s time to make your own. Let me give you some more information on these challenge groups and outline the steps you need to take to join one so that you can turn your decision into a commitment!
1. Define your WHY!
When starting a challenge group, the first thing I have a new team member do is send me their WHY. This why is your ultimate motivation. Chances are that your WHY may run deeper than you think. Sure, you want to lose some weight, tone up, clean up your nutrition – but I want to know if you are doing all of those things in order to be able to hoist up your three year old again, to feel stunning on your wedding day, or to combat a health related issue. If you pin down this WHY – and share it with me – it will be a constant reminder of the big picture that is being built from all of the small changes you are making.
2. Join the Team!
If you have already done this, skip to step 3. If not, fill in this online form to make me your Team Beachbody Coach. This is completely free. Signing up entitles you to be a part of teamChiseledBranches so that we can help you on every step of your fitness journey.
3. Find the right workout program!
I’ve been posting articles on this site for a little over a year – and have went into detail about several of the Beachbody workout programs I love, so you may already have an idea of which one you should try. There is something for everyone! You can start with 10 minute trainer, Slim in 6, RevAbs, Power 90, Chalene Extreme, Turbo Fire – or go a little crazy with Insanity, The Asylum, P90X, or P90X2. Tight on time? Focus T25 or P90X3 might be the perfect fit, with 25 and 30 minute workouts, respectively.
Some people might already feel like it is all they can handle to take on a exercise program – believe me, I was there! However, for those of you who want to tackle all aspects of your fitness journey right out of the box – there is a way to SAVE MONEY by ordering a “Challenge Pack.” Challenge Packs bundles your workout program, your supplements, and a VIP team Beachbody club membership, and free shipping for a reduced rate. For example, through January 31, 2014, the P90X3 Challenge pack is on sale for $180. This includes:
- 16 extreme 30-minute workouts (value: $119.85)
- Your first 30-day supply of Shakeology – the superfood shake designed to give you energy, reduce your cravings, and accelerate your fitness results (value: 129.95)
- A free 30-day trial membership in the Team Beachbody Club, where you can go to find additional fitness and nutrition support you’ll need to complete your challenge (value: $12)
- Free standard shipping (value: $29.95)
- Plus, when you order through your coach, you’ll get a free bonus workout from Tony Horton 1-on-1 series. (value: $19.95)
Log-in to your teamBeachbody account and choose the Shop tab at the top. Then in the left hand menu you can choose “Challenge Packs” to see all those that are available.
4. Nutrition Tracking
Take the guess work out of nutrition by setting up an account with MyFitnessPal. Track what you eat. This will give us a starting point, and a way to see how much your macros need to be adjusted to compliment your goals. Link up with me on MFP by searching for my screen name: KimberlyB32 – this will allow you to see my nutrition journal and is a great way to hold yourself accountable. The level of results you get is in direct proportion to the effort you put into your nutrition. Learn as much as you can about nutrition, and listen to your body…unless of course it is telling you to eat donuts (don’t listen in that case;).
5. Take your before photos!
Document everything – measurements, body fat, and take photos from the front, back, and side. This will be a great way to show yourself how much your are changing, and to share your results with others later.
6. Plan to Connect!
