Insanity Workout Results in 3 Steps

Insanity - Get Fit

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson – Insanity Cast Member & Master Trainer 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…

Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World

Take time to Celebrate!!! A Recap of the 2013 Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World Trip by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson 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!

Focus T25 Shaun T Workout at Walt Disney World – An Opportunity Knocks Story

Shaun T

A story of being ready when opportunity knocks by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson   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…

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson 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…

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson 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.

This former fat college dropout wants to show you how to make a 6 Figure Income in your spare time while getting in shape!

You may think that headline is a bit dramatic but it is 100% true.  In my mid-20′s I found myself 100 pounds overweight, living back with my parents after dropping out of college.  Oh did I mention I was drowning in the stress of debt which added to my weight gain? Thankfully I was introduced to a community of supportive people that accepted me just as I was and taught me what life could truly be.  These amazing people were willing to help, but ultimately it was up to me to decide to take the first step, put some skin in the game and commit to getting started. You see knowing or hearing about a solution is one thing.  But it is the person that is willing to take that first step of faith that gets to experience the miracle!   My 100 pound weight loss didn’t come from just knowing…

How to pay your rent with Pushups!

I have been bubbling with anticipation and excitement for this announcement.  So I won’t beat around the bush.  Let me get straight to the point! First thing I need to you know is that this isn’t for everyone. I am constantly asked how I was able to go from 100 pounds overweight, a 3 time college dropout who was living at home with my parents and drowning in debt, to having the privilege of not only losing those 100 pounds and working from home, but being able to bring my wife home from her corporate job to work with me as we raise our awesome 2 year old son, Asher.  And how in the world did we create a comfortable 6 figure income in the process!? Well I am on a quest to find a few individuals who know they were made to do more with their life.  Those people…
