Thousands of people are seeing awesome Insanity Workout Results, but maybe you are one of those that have tried it and were disappointed because your after photo didn’t match those you saw on the Insanity infomercial.  Well never fear I am here to help!  It all starts with the decision to work with a Coach during your Insanity Workout journey.

Many people don’t even realize they have the option to work with a Coach when they purchase the Insanity Workout DVD set.  So they get the box and just pop in the first DVD without looking at the guide, the calendar, or the Elite Nutrition Guide that comes with it.  They go barreling into it with no plan and no understanding of how it works.  Then they claim that Insanity didn’t work for them.   That would be like throwing a bunch of ingredients into a bowl and throwing it into a cold oven, then complaining that cake tastes awful without ever looking at the recipe book for directions on what to do with the ingredients!   Do you think having a world class chef by your side to walk you thru all the steps would increase your chances of creating a delicious cake?   Of course it would!   The same is true when you work with an Insanity Workout Coach!

A Recap of the 2013 Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World Trip

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson


Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World

If you have stopped by my Facebook page recently, you probably saw quite a few fun and crazy pics from our recent trip to Walt Disney World.   Not everyone knows that I used to work at Walt Disney World, so I am always thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds.   It is always fun to act like a big kid running around all the parks, riding rides, and taking pictures with giant characters from my favorite movies!  The best part about this trip:  It was Free!  I earned it as a Team Beachbody Coach for encouraging others with their health and fitness goals.  Sounds too good to be true right?  I used to think the same thing!  But this is the 7th trip Beachbody has sent me on!

What made this trip stand out from other Disney trips I had been on before is that I got to experience the fun with my team, THE CREW.  Many of these people started as friends or clients who were working on their own health and fitness goals.  They realized despite being in the middle of their own journey there were people around them that needed help just getting started, so they upgraded to join THE CREW as a Team Beachbody Coach.

Walt Disney World

Even though there were intense morning workouts with Shaun T and Leandro Carvalho, and amazing training talks with Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler and world renown economist Paul Zane Pilzer, this trip was really about taking time to celebrate!

I don’t know about you, but there have been times in my life as I am working towards a goal I tend to only focus on my short comings.  For example:  Someone compliments you because you have lost 5 pounds and your reaction sounds something like this, “Yeah but I still have so far to go”  Or maybe you have started a new business venture and you are constantly comparing your results to someone else’s regardless of how much progress you’ve made.  It is so easy to beat ourselves up over the things we haven’t done.  Those things that never got marked off our to do list.  The extra cookie we snuck in when no one was looking.  I understand!  Even after my 100 pound weight loss I still struggled with focusing on the things I was unsatisfied with instead of celebrating the progress I had made.

During this Walt Disney World Beachbody Coach trip I wanted to make sure my team truly took the time to stop and celebrate the things they had achieved over the past year.  Many times the path we are on towards our goals still seems so long and drawn out in front of us.  But it is vital that from time to time we stop and turn around to remind ourselves of how far we have come.  It’s in these times of celebration that I find new confidence to keep pushing forward.  So take time today to review how far you have come.  Celebrate your accomplishments big and small!  They are a reminder that you are a successful person with many more successes in your future!

I hope you enjoy these pictures from our trip.  If you are in need of a supportive family to help you reach your goals I encourage you to email us at ClientCare@nelsongy.com.   You aren’t alone.  We are here to help!


In this thing together– Coach Jimmy

A story of being ready when opportunity knocks

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson

 Shaun T

This past week I was totally pampered at the Beachbody Coach Success Club Trip at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.  Beachbody, the company behind Insanity, P90X, TurboFire, and Brazil Butt Lift, rewarded its qualifying Coaches with a free trip to Orlando for training, fun, and of course …. world class workouts with Insanity workout creator, Shaun T. Looking over the schedule I was stoked to see THREE Shaun T Workouts on the docket.  Sunrise Insanity workouts in the middle of Epcot before the park opened … are you kidding me?  I was so stoked.   Then the excitement grew even more when those of us who were Elite Beachbody Coaches got a sneak peek of the new Shaun T workout program, FOCUS T25!  So not only was I going to get to workout with my buddy and fitness mentor, I was also going to get to experience some new Focus T25 moves.  I was ready to Power Jump to the moon!

I will ‘focus’ on my T25 review a little later this week.  This is more a tale of being ready when opportunity knocks.  For the last two months I have really been pushing myself in my workouts to prepare for the Beachbody Insanity Master Trainer auditions, the launch of the Insanity Certification, and the creation of D.I.G., our new Dallas Insanity Group.

I felt that in order to give my best to those who would be looking to me for leadership and guidance, I had to truly push myself to the brink.  If I was going to ask them to Dig Deeper, I had to remind myself what it felt like to feel like you can’t go on…to experience that critical moment where you decide if you are going to quit or break thru a barrier today.  Little did I know that those 6am sessions in my home gym by myself would pay very public dividends.

Focus T25

It was still dark outside as we all found our spots in front of the stage in the middle of Epcot.  As we danced around to the pre-show music trying to stay warm, the group of over 1000 Beachbody Coaches got very animated as Shaun T and his ‘Shantourage’ took the stage.  He told us all good morning, and before I knew what happened, he was asking the crowd who was the guy in the Insanity Workouts with the ‘Good Squats’?!  The next thing I knew, Shaun T was telling me to get on stage because I would be doing today’s Focus T25 Workout with him on stage.   Even though I had never done this workout, I was stoked to jump on stage and give it my best.  Many people might have been terrified in this situation, but I wasn’t!  Why?  Because I knew I was ready.  The past 2 months of training by myself when no one was around, no audience, with no immediate gratification was now about payoff when opportunity knocked.

Shaun T

As you can see from these pictures, I had a blast.  Now I won’t lie, there were moments when I wanted to take a break!  There were even a few times when I wasn’t sure I was gonna make it through to the end.  But in those moments, I would silently remind myself that this is no different than being at home at 6:00am.   The stage, the crowd, Shaun T himself right next to me …. at the end of the day didn’t matter because I was ready! As an Insanity Coach who has the experience of also being featured in the Insanity workout DVDs, I know first hand that working out with Shaun T in person is a lesson in learning what the phrase DIG DEEPER truly means!  I try to instill that experience into my Insanity Online Coach Group clients so they can break through their plateaus to see results they may not have thought possible. Your ‘Opportunity Knocks’ moment may not be fitness related.  You may not be called on stage by Shaun T to do a live Focus T25 or Insanity Workout.  But what it is in your life that you know the extra effort when no one is watching will ultimately pay huge dividends in the future?  Perhaps its going the extra mile at your job even though it may not initially mean a pay raise.  Is it going the extra mile with your family even in times when you feel they should be the ones helping you more?  I invite you to stop by my Facebook Page and let me know what you are doing to prepare so you can rock your on-stage moment when Opportunity Knocks!

How To Lead What images come to mind when you think of the word Leader?  It is a general leading troops into battle?  A football Coach rallying his team down with a passionate halftime speech?  Perhaps its a school teacher or CEO lecturing to eager minds ready to learn. Or since you are on this blog, maybe you picture someone like Shaun T, Tony Horton, or Chalene Johnson motivating a giant room full of sweaty peeps!  These images all have one thing in common:  A platform.  Many people think before they can lead someone else they need to be given some kind of platform or label.

Leadership does not require a label

I truly believe the reason we lack more leaders today is that most people don’t see themselves as leaders.  They are waiting for someone else to give them permission to lead.  Like they need their ‘Leadership Members’ card before they can lead or influence others.  Leadership does not require a label!  You do not need to achieve a certain level of experience or expertise before you are ‘worthy’ of leading!

Leadership = Adding Value

I was recently reminded when listening to an audio program by John C. Maxwell that can really be summed up by choosing to add value to someone else’s life on a daily basis.  I thought that was an awesome statement.  Why?  Because anyone can do it!  That means anyone – including you – can be a leader today if you choose to be.  Now it does take some effort.  It means choosing to live your day not only focused on yourself.  We all have ups and downs to our day.  Unexpected drama and issues have a way of rearing their ugly head at the worst times.  Its in those times we, as leaders, need to look beyond our own circumstances and know that there is someone out there who needs to hear from us! This is where leading by example truly comes into play.  Be the leader you wish others were for you right now today!

How to Lead made simple

There is a motto I live by that my team, THE CREW, is probably tired of hearing me say on our Monday night webinars.  But I truly believe in it:

We do not sell health and fitness.  We deliver HOPE to a world that desperately needs it!

That truly is leadership made simple.  I start everyday asking myself how I can give hope to someone that day that may be at the end of their rope.  That may sound pretty dramatic, but its actually very easy to do.  Never underestimate the power of a compliment or a kind word.  You may not think that its a very big deal.  Some of you may think that in order to add value to someone’s life you need to be able to write a substantial check or do something worthy of being on the 6 o’clock news.  But I have had people come back and tell me that a simple – “Fantastic Job” “You are looking awesome” “Keep up the good work” – was exactly what they needed to take action to change their lives dramatically!

So in Recap:

  • Anyone can be a leader
  • Start right where you are today
  • Find ways to add values to other’s lives daily
  • Deliver hope and encouragement to a world that needs it

Learning how to lead isn’t hard, but like anything else in life it takes deliberate focus and action!

Insanity Certification Chicago

Last week I had the privilege of attending the very first Insanity Certification at the Empower Fusion Convention in Chicago, IL. To be in a room full of ‘Insaniacs’ who were passionate about learning this format to teach at gyms and fit clubs around the world was a dream come true.  As an Insanity Cast Member, I always thought that this format would be great to teach in a group exercise setting.
Millions of people from all over the world have gotten amazing, ripped results from the In-Home Insanity Workout DVDs, but now you can take Insanity workout classes or even teach hottest fitness program around with the new Insanity Certification.

What is an Insanity Workout?

If you live under a rock or maybe don’t watch TV, then you are forgiven for not being familiar with the Insanity Workout DVDs.  Insanity is a 60 Day In-Home workout program that many deem the hardest workout ever put on DVD! Created by celebrity trainer Shaun T, Insanity will push you past your limits! It’s packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves. No equipment or weights needed. Just the will to get the hardest body you’ve ever had.
INSANITY Certification

For many people, the opportunity to get completely ripped results at home was just what they’d been looking for.  No crowded gyms. No lengthy commute.  No need to compare yourself to the fit perky person at the front of the class!

But for others, the need to be in a social class setting is vital in finding their fitness motivation.  Working out at home didn’t work for them.  It was too easy to sit on the couch and let their Insanity Workout DVDs become a fancy paperweight.  This Insanity instructor training is the perfect solution to those looking to teach or take an Insanity Workout class!

Insanity Certification

How do Insanity Workout Classes work?
The Insanity Workout Classes can be taught as both 30 or 50 minutes classes.  The 30 minute classes consists of a warm up, 2 blocks of 4 core Insanity moves, and a cool down.  Each of the 2 blocks repeat 3 times with a full 1 minute power move at the end of each block that will cause you to Dig Deeper just to finish!

We got to preview the 50 minute class during our Insanity Certification.  It starts with a traditional Insanity Warm Up followed by a brief stretch.  Then 3 full Insanity blocks repeated 3 times, each with its own finishing Power Move.  Then you move onto a brief but intense Ab section to help you obtain that ripped 6 pack you see on the infomercial.  Then the Insanity Workout Classes are wrapped up with a much needed cool down.

As an Insanity Workout veteran, I noticed that I worked much harder in the class setting with others around me than I did by myself in front of my TV.  That is the great thing about the launch of the Insanity Certification both for instructors and students, the opportunity for healthy competition within the class that ensures everyone will get the best workout possible.

How to get INSANITY Certified?

If you are a fitness instructor or just an Insanity Workout fan, imagine how awesome you’ll feel helping people reach their fitness goals using the most insane workout ever put together!

Good News!  Anyone can attend an Insanity Certification.  No previous experience is necessary!  New certifications are being scheduled all over the country right now.  So don’t wait because they will sell out!  

So Don’t Wait!  Get signed up for your Insanity Certification Today!

Don’t worry INSANITY isn’t all hardcore and serious

So how does the 1st Insanity Certification graduating class celebrate?   With a silly Insanity Harlem Shake …. of course!  Can you find me??? HINT: I’m in a blue tank top! Enjoy!  

Don’t Wait! Find an Insanity Certification Today!

If you are currently doing any Beachbody workout program, you have probably heard of Shakeology.   More and more amazing success stories are roll in every week!  I haven’t missed a day since it made its debut in 2009 which is funny because when it was first announced at our Team Beachbody Coach Summit, I totally didn’t understand what made Shakeology different from everything on the market nor the impact it would have on my life.

The Shakeology Price is Too High!

You may feel like I did when it first rolled out.  Sure it looked good!  And all those 70+ ingredients are impressive.  But $119 for a bag is ridiculous!  There is no way I can afford that. However I didn’t blink an eye when I would go into a supplement shop and walk out with 4-5 tubs of stuff that cost me $200-$300.  Not to mention the $4-$8 a day coffee shop/energy drink habit I had as well. Up to that point everything Beachbody had put out had completely changed my life.  So I was willing to take them up on their “Bottom of the Bag” guarantee and see if this fancy shake lived up to all the hype.

What is your Shakeology Review?

I already mentioned that I haven’t missed a day of Shakeology since 2009, so you can imagine that my Shakeology review is pretty positive.  Once I grasped that I was only paying $4 to replace a meal that I normally was spending $8-$12 it became a no-brainer, and it replaced all those different tubs of stuff I had been getting at the vitamin store!  But more so than what it did for me was the fact that it literally saved my Dad’s life.   You can see the 1 minute video Shakeology review I did here.

Shakeology Price is going up?!?!?

That was my reaction when I heard the news.  Even a loyal customer like myself was a little shocked initially.  But then it dawned on me that the average price of gas in 2009 was $1.78 and now its $3.76.  So while inflation was causing the price of everything else to go up, Beachbody was able to hold prices in check.   That is pretty impressive.  It’s especially since they have refused to compromise on ingredient quality, and have even improved the formulation to make it even better for you!

So here’s the facts about the Shakeology price shift. On April 1st, the price of the whey Shakeology flavors (Chocolate & Greenberry) are going from $119 to $129 retail ($89 to $97 Coach Price).  This will make them the same price of the vegan flavors.  If you are already enjoying the vegan Shakeology flavors there is no price change.

As I mentioned before, inflation is a part of life.   The options given to us by Beachbody were to either raise the price of regular Shakeology flavors or starting charging shipping on the Shakeology HD (Home Direct) orders.  I, for one, am very glad that they decided to continue to honor the free shipping for those of us on Shakeology auto ship HD!

So now the Shakeology price is the same across the board for all flavors both regular and vegan.  And we still get to enjoy free shipping for HD orders.  It makes sense to me since now the regular and vegan formulas are identical except for the protein. (Regular has whey isolate and Vegan uses brown rice protein).

Get your Shakeology Discount Here before the price goes Up!

So what’s the good news about the Shakeology Price Change?

 

Beachbody is not adjusting the price of the regular flavors until April 1st.  If you are on HD now… You are LOCKED IN to the CURRENT Shakeology price. That means you KEEP your $89.96 rate (Coaches get the best deal)  You still enjoy free shipping and are GRANDFATHERED in to hold that price for LIFE!  If you’re not…. on April 1st the price is going up.

So if you have been on the fence NOW is your chance to get LOCKED in for a special price. You can still opt out whenever you’d like, but who would want to when you can save $120 a year?

P90X Creator Tony Horton chimes in. This is Hilarious!

This is probably the funniest Shakeology Review I have ever seen.  Is it a little silly and goofy?  Yes!  But it does an amazing job of showing that unique quality and value of Shakeology.  This video really does a great job of explaining what sets Shakeology apart from other shakes.  Enjoy!

I sat down to write this post at 10am.   My intention was to knock this post out first thing, then make my way on to the other things on my to do list…. Oh, but I first I needed to jump on my Facbeook page to answer a question. And while I was on Facebook, I might as well check in on my Insanity Support Group and let them know what workout I did this morning…..  Oh look that is a funny picture on my newsfeed.  I have the best comment for that, it will only take a second. What was that ding?  Oh awesome there are 2 new people wanting to join The Crew as Beachbody Coaches. Man I really don’t like this song on Spotify … where is the thumbs down button. WOW… how is it already 11am?  I told the family I would be done with all my work by noon so we could have family lunch and shopping day.    Now I feel really stressed and pressured.  Where did all the great creative ideas I had for blog posts go…… crap.

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU???

It’s kind of laughable that I am wrestling with this today.  It was just a week ago I had a two day workshop with the amazing people from FranklinCovey.  I went into that workshop assuming we were just going to learn about time management, but really as the training unfolded it was obvious that the main point was that we all need to FOCUS.

It becomes much easier to focus when we identify what things truly need our attention, what can wait, and what can be handled by others.  (This may make you a bit uneasy if you are a self admitted control freak who needs their hands in everything.  Don’t feel bad I used to be one as well.  There is hope for you!)

BUSY, EXHAUSTED, WITH NO RESULTS

Obviously this is very common in the workforce.  That is why there are companies like FranklinCovey that come in and train entire organizations on ways to help them focus.  But I constantly see this issue when it comes to people’s health and fitness!  It is totally understandable!  There is so much info out there, it is easy to become paralyzed with diet/exercise overload.

Can I get an Amen?

Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Low Fat, Raw, Carb Cycling, Alkaline, Atkins, Cabbage Soup, Carb Lovers, Caveman, Dukan, Dr. Oz, South Beach, French Woman, Glycemic Index, Primal …. omigosh my head hurts from the results from a google search on diet.  The results are just as overwhelming if you were to search ‘best workout’ or ‘get fit’.

So how is it possible to Focus in the midst of all this noise?    That is a great question.

If you have been reading this blog for awhile you know that my 100 pound weight loss has come because I follow the 4 Pillars of Success:

Fitness + Nutrition +Support + Rewards = Real Long Term Results

For me that has been doing progressing through programs like Power 90, P90X, and Insanity (Fitness),  drinking my Shakeology every day (Nutrition), plugging into our Support Group, and entering the Beachbody Challenge where I was able to win $1000 for my results. That worked for me!  Does that mean that is the only solution out there?  Absolutely not! What I will encourage you to do is to PICK SOMETHING.  Then once you’ve picked something STICK TO IT! Really it is that simple.  Jumping week to week to a new program or fad diet is never going to get you anywhere.  Every time you shift directions you are having to restart your momentum all over again.   At the very least give your plan 6 weeks to see if it really works.   Be patient.  Don’t expect magical overnight results!   And don’t go at it alone.  Find a community to support you because you will have bad days that you want to quit, and that is where the support pillar is key. If you need any help picking a plan, or you just need someone in your corner cheering you along the way, I invite you to join my Facebook community.   I am in this thing with you! Focus and Go!!!!

Insanity Certification

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson

Have you heard the buzz, whispers, and excitement?  Yes, the rumors are true.  Insanity Workout Certification is on its way, which means a LIVE Insanity class is probably headed to a gym near you in the very near future!

I’ve been waiting for this since we shot Insanity in New York City back in 2009.  It truly is the perfect group exercise format because it is just you, music, the floor, and your effort measured in sweat.

Insanity Class coming to a Gym Near You!

Before the official launch of the first Insanity Certification, Beachbody held its first ever Master Trainer Camp.  This camp is an audition process for fitness professionals wanting to be able to teach the actual certification class to those wanting to be certified.  The camp was a 3 day marathon that included other formats like Turbo Kick (aka the live version of Chalene Johnson’s Turbo Jam),  Hip Hop Hustle, and PiYo (A Cirque Du Soleil bodyweight type workout with its roots based in Pilates and Yoga).   Our mornings would start at 6am with a workout focusing on achieving perfect form in each of the formats.  Then we would grab breakfast and settle into a lecture format where we covered topics like: What it means to be a great Presenter, Public Speaking Tips, Voice Coaching from celebrity vocal coach Roger Love, Promotions, Social Media/Instagram  training from Chalene Johnson, and yes… even makeup and style tips from Tiffany Lee Bymaster aka Coach Glitter!  That was just Monday and Tuesday!

Then Wednesday rolled around.  Also known as INSANITY Day!  We started the morning with a 6am Insanity workout lead by Master Trainer Angie Green.  It was really cool to see how they took the vibe of the Insanity DVDs and translated that to a live class.  The music for the Insanity Class was awesome.  There were clips of Shaun T saying motivational phrases peppered throughout the workout to let you know when it was time to go to the next exercise.

After the workout, we grabbed breakfast and found our seats in the lecture hall.  Then the man himself, Shaun T, joined us for an amazing presentation on the history of Insanity.  Where it came from.  What events in this childhood and past influenced moves, intensity, and phrases like ‘DIG DEEPER’.  It truly was amazing.  As an Insanity Cast Member, I thought I knew everything there was to know about the Insanity Workouts.  Boy, was I wrong!  Listening to Shaun share his story gave me a whole new appreciation for the workouts and his impact on my life.

Then it was time for the moment of truth.  A live Insanity Workout with Shaun T!  We were split into 2 groups of about 20 people each.  I was thankful that I was part of the first group.  I was chomping at the bit to get in that room.  I trained for months for this moment, and I knew I was ready.

The live Insanity Workout with Shaun T was ready to begin!

I was so excited when I walked into the audition room and saw that everyone’s favorite Insaniac, Tania, was there as well!  (You know her,  she’s the chick no one can keep up with on the videos!)   I found my spot behind Tania, the music started, and I immediately felt like I was back in NYC in 2009 filming the Insanity Workout Video Insanity Workout Video all over again!

I felt good, I was keeping up with everyone around me … then it happened.  If you’ve never worked out live with Shaun T, here’s a tip that is better than any Insanity Workout Review you will find online:  He’s not your typical instructor who stays at the front of the class.  I compare him to a tiger … or maybe a shark that weaves his way carefully through the crowd.  And just when you think you are safe he pounces and is right beside you challenging you to get your knees higher or your squats lower.   Well just when I was feeling pretty good about myself is when Shaun decided to pounce on yours truly.

We were in a low sumo squat position throwing punches.  I was right on pace with everyone around me when Shaun looked me dead in the eye and said, “Stop being Lazy!  Push!  Dig Deeper!”  I felt like someone just looked thru me right to my heart.  Why?  Because he was absolutely right.  The pace of those around me wasn’t my best, but I felt like I could save some energy by just matching their effort.  The problem with that is other’s best isn’t necessarily MY best!

shaun sittingshaun hug

Have you ever fallen victim to that?  Do you let those around you dictate your pace?  Or are you so busy comparing your results with others that you forget to congratulate yourself on a job well done?   I was humbly reminded of a very important lesson that day.  My struggle and competition shouldn’t come from anyone but me!  If we constantly compare our effort and results to those around us, then we cheat ourselves!  We either get sucked into doing less than our best because of the effort of others, or we don’t take the opportunity to celebrate the progress we have made because we are too busy measuring against the accomplishments of others.

You be the best you that YOU can be!

Well, I don’t know if I’m an INSANITY Master Trainer just yet.  But I should be getting the news very soon.  So be sure to check my Facebook page often for the big announcement.  Who knows I may be teaching an Insanity Certification near you very soon!

In the meantime Focus and Go …. and always DIG DEEPER!
