How Doing INSANITY and P90X Workouts Landed Me in the Bahamas

beach workout

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson

There are many reasons people are flocking to do America’s #1 in-home workout programs INSANITY and P90X.  Most have something to do with shrinking their waistline, building muscle, improving self-esteem, and taking control of their overall health and wellbeing. Most don’t grab a set of DVDs with the thought that they would be sent on a tropical vacation where they would stay at a luxury resort for free! But that is exactly what happened for me and my wife!

This amazing blessing was actually our first vacation for just the two of us since our son was born.  (Thanks to Grandparents!)
Flying into Nassau was breath taking, and it was awesome that half the plane was filled with friends of ours who share our same passion for helping others.

I could write a whole book about our trip, but I will give you the highlights.

The Atlantis resort is gorgeous and HUGE!  We had our choice of multiple pools, water parks, and beaches right there on the property.  The first day was a lot of lying back in a beach chair with a fruity drink and enjoying the gorgeous weather. 

They also had these amazing water slides that went through a shark tank!  I was really impressed that there was something for everyone.  It was a place for kids and families to have fun, as well as nightclubs, casinos, and private pools just for the adults.

We also had dinner at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill, which was delicious!


You may be curious how a workout on a vacation is appealing.  Well it is when you start your morning on a gorgeous beach working out with world class trainers.  INSANITY creator Shaun T, Mr. P90X Tony Horton, and the genius ‘behind’ BRAZIL BUTT LIFT, Leandro Carvalho, all lead live morning workouts.  It was so amazing to feed off the energy of these guys as we sweated it out with a few hundred friends.


Every time I have the honor of attending an event hosted by Beachbody, I come away thoroughly impressed.  The first night we were treated to a huge buffet with live entertainment.

The training sessions were great!  We got to listen to Beachbody CEO, Carl Daikeler, and his wife, Isabel, talk about the new Ultimate Reset Cleanse.  (I have been selected to be in a test group for this, so much more info about it soon)

There was also a question and answer panel with Tony Horton, Shaun T, and Leandro Carvalho.  It was so entertaining hearing stories from these guys about the early days of their careers, and what they personally do to stay in tip top shape.

Then Beachbody outdid themselves with an amazing dinner and fireworks show on the beach to wrap up and amazing vacation!

You may be curious how that happens.  Well that goes back to when I made a decision to step out of my comfort zone and join a supportive group called Team Beachbody Coaches.  I made that decision as a broke, struggling actor who found himself drowning in debt and doing coffee demos at department stores just trying to make ends meet.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think making that decision and getting plugged into a simple proven system would allow me to do some of the things I have done.  Thanks to becoming a Beachbody Coach:
  • I have lost 100 pounds and kept it off!
  • I am able to love what I do as I help others improve their health!
  • I have been sent on free vacations to the Bahamas, South of France, Laguna Beach, and a week-long Caribbean cruise!
  • I have paid off numerous bills that used to keep me up at night!
  • I am able to be a Stay-at-Home Dad with my son!
  • I earn a six figure income while showing others how to do the same!
I’m sure you are totally satisfied with your current fitness level, you are taking awesome vacations with your family, and don’t need to earn any extra income on a part time basis.  But if you do know someone who has needs in those areas, we are looking for a few qualified leaders to work with.  We are currently setting up interviews.  If you or someone you know would like to lose weight, feel great, and decrease their debt helping others do the same CLICK HERE to send an email with your information.

I look forward to enjoying our next amazing vacation with you!

In this together—Coach Jimmy
