Shakeology Price Increase

Fri, 03/22/2013 - 09:51
The retail price of Chocolate and Greenberry Shakeology is going up $10.00 on April 1, 2013. If you sign up for Chocolate or Greenberry on Home Direct before April 1st, you are guaranteed to lock in the original $119.95 (plus s&h and applicable tax) price for life, so long as you do not cancel your original Chocolate or Greenberry Shakeology Home Direct order billed to your current credit card. You can cancel at any time by calling Customer Service to avoid future charges. Offer applies to Greenberry and Chocolate flavors only, and expressly excludes any other future Shakeology flavors, including any and all vegan formulas. Offer is non-transferable. Offer has no cash redemption value.

Free shipping only available by signing up for Home Direct, the monthly autoship program, and only available in the US excluding AK, HI, and US territories. With Home Direct, you'll automatically receive this item every 30 days, shipped directly to your door and billed to your credit card.

Why the increase? The costs of gas and shipping have skyrocketed. And the costs of whey and other key ingredients keep creeping upward. Beachbody didn't budge for years on the cost of Shakeology, but at the risk of charging for home direct or using cheaper ingredients, they are increasing the price.

So, lock in now while you can on Home Direct for the current price ($119.95) for life!

If you are a Beachbody club member you get 10% off every purchase and if you are a coach, 20% off! You can always sign up for a free account and decide later as well.

That's right, they have improved on the formula! Several reviewers have said the new flavor is better than the original! :)

P90X2 is now available for Pre-order! Pre-order now or be left out!

Thu, 09/01/2011 - 12:00
The wait is over! P90X2 is now available for pre-order! P90X MC2 promises to be the most intense, effective, and rewarding workouts ever. But please note that there are only a LIMITED NUMBER of copies available before the Holidays. The initial copies are going to sell quickly. So if you are planning to start the new year with P90X2 and want it before Christmas, you'd better order now!

A lot of people will want to do this at the beginning of 2012 for the New Year. If you don't pre-order, there is no guarantee that you will be able to get it for 2012. The initial copies of P90X2 are going to sell out faster than lightning, so make sure to pre-order yours today!

Think about what you want for Christmas. By the time you start thinking about it in November, it may be too late and the inventory will be sold out.

Since it's not out for 4 months, you can start other programs, P90, P90X, etc. to get in shape for when your copy of P90X2 arrives.

When you pre-order P90X2 from me, you'll also get:
  • Two FREE bonus workout DVDs. That's two more extreme workouts with Tony you can use to get in tip-top shape.
  • FREE shipping and handling when you pre-order. (up to a $40 value)
  • An automatic sweepstakes entry to win exclusive P90X prizes. And the earlier you place your order, the more chances you'll have to win.
  • A shot to be featured in a future P90X2 infomercial!
When you're ready, stop by my Beachbody Web site at http://www.beachbodycoach.com/FitCorner and follow the P90X2 banner on the right. Or contact me directly and I'll walk you through the process-plus, answer any questions you might have. A P90X2 FAQ is also available on Fit Corner Network. For Tony's view read P90X2 is not P90X harder. It's P90X different.




What does the CEO have to say?

P90X is the most famous workout in the history of fitness. P90X is everywhere. And now, we have P90X2. "This is going to be the hottest workout for the Holidays.", says Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody.

"This is a completely new fitness program that is going to blow you away."

Let's get ready to bring it!


P90X2 is not P90X harder. It's P90X different.

Thu, 09/01/2011 - 06:51
Tony Horton has been discussing P90X2 and the following is a summary of what he said during a P90X2 Breakfast call.

Tony says that “P90X2 is not P90X harder. It’s P90X different.” P90X has been out for around 7 years now. They took a year before creating P90X to do research. They didn’t even think that P90X would sell! It was different than everything else out there. And they are at 3.5 million sold now. After feedback over the last 7 years from coaches and customers of P90X, the next level is not a cardio DVD, but interval workouts.

“Indoor training for the outside world.”

You’ll be able to run faster, jump higher, and improve your knee and hip joints. 

Like anything new, and especially extreme, it will initially be harder when starting. The only way to improve is by doing something close to impossible, in fact, Tony says that there is a push-up that is called The Impossible. “You do not get better by doing things that are easy.” But don’t let that scare you away, just like P90X, there is a modified version of every exercise. There is one person in every workout that is doing the modified version. It’s also designed for people that travel in that regard.

Progress Update

Wed, 08/24/2011 - 06:58
I am on week 6 of P90X. I am only working out on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (weight lifting days) as my Achilles Tendon is still picky about Plyo, Yoga, and Kenpo. Once this round of P90X is completed and I have regained my strength (4 months off due to injury), I'll add in the other activities. That, or P90X2 if it's released by the time I start the second round!

Achilles Tendon Injury

Thu, 05/19/2011 - 06:55
I injured my Achilles Tendon. I don't know which P90X workout did it, but Friday morning (3 weeks ago now) it was hard to walk on when I woke up. It didn't rupture, more like tiny micro tears. It was healing fairly well during the last few weeks  until I tried pushing off on my foot without thinking (it's difficult to keep your foot flexed constantly). I re-injured it about a week ago (which was incredibly painful) and had to get an immobile boot.

What have I learned?

Do not push yourself when you are in your thirties as if you were twenty. I do not have the connective muscle tissues of a twenty year old. Also, do not stop your work outs, modify them. I will not lie, it IS frustrating when you cannot stick to your regular workout schedule, but anything is better than nothing.

My modified schedule (from a fellow Beachbody coach):
  1. Chest shoulders triceps
  2. Back and biceps
  3. Ab ripper
  4. Chest and back
  5. Shoulders and arms
  6. Ab ripper
There may be some cross over on supporting muscles, but it should be minimum.

I am also building a deck and fence (with my immobile boot) so I have been skipping some workouts as I work on that project.

Keep pushing play everyone! And don't beat yourself up when you can't do a workout, skip a workout, or miss it due to other obligations, just get right back into it the next time.

Hate Yoga? 6 Reasons Yoga's Great for Guys

Tue, 05/10/2011 - 06:40
I am not a fan of Yoga. It's hard! I'm not that flexible and some of the positions you have to hold takes a lot of strength. P90X's Yoga is not for the faint of heart; it'll burn calories, strengthen you, and make you more flexible. When you first start, you are cursing at Tony as he breezes through without any problems. You really have to stick with it.

In his book Bring It!, Tony calls Yoga, "The Fountain of Youth". I believe him on that point, I feel invigorated after doing Yoga. He also says after the age of 35 you lose 1% of flexibility per year. By the time you are 65 you are 30% less flexible and are more prone to injury. He recommends at least 15 minutes of Yoga every day.

Beachbody and Pyramid Schemes

Fri, 04/22/2011 - 06:17
For some reason, I get the question Is Beachbody a Pyramid Scheme asked quite a bit. First of all, no, it's not a pyramid scheme and second, most people do not understand the workings of a pyramid scheme.

What is a Pyramid Scheme?

"People are often misinformed about network marketing and get the business model confused with illegal pyramid schemes.  To give a short summary, a pyramid scheme is similar to a Ponzi scheme.  Pyramid schemes are to the network marketing industry as Ponzi schemes are to the Investment industry.  Both look like a legitimate business opportunity and look like they are based on the business model, but they promise high returns with no work involved except for getting other people into the scheme and paying those above them with the money taken in by new investors.  Why they always ultimately fail it that as the scheme grows, new investors are required to put more money in.  Once the bubble bursts, the scheme falls apart and everyone gets burned." - Coach Jim Wyatt.

People PyramidWhat does this mean? New recruits are paying money into a business, but often do not receive any type product. The primary source of income, for example in Ponzi schemes, is from new investors. They must constantly bring in new investors in order to continue paying the old investors. Beachbody’s costs are not paid to the coach who recruits you. They are paid directly to Beachbody. Something else, a lot of those schemes require you to have inventory (most are likely to end up in the trash). Beachbody does not have such a requirement. Purchases are directed through their site or their resellers. There is no inventory kept on hand by the coaches.

P90X in Bruno Mars The Lazy Song

Wed, 04/20/2011 - 06:09
Bruno Mars mentioned P90X in his song, The Lazy Song. The official video is below. It's pretty funny and the song is clean except for that one line:

"Tomorrow I'll wake up, do some P90X. Find a really nice girl, have some really nice sex. And she's gonna scream out. This is great."

It's neat to see P90X being mentioned in more and more places.

I'm a bit behind the times it seems as this was released in Feburary 2011.
