Invest 20 Seconds. It may just change your life!


by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson

This past weekend I had the privilege of being asked to emcee an event in Dallas for over 500 Beachbody Coaches.  If that wasn’t cool enough, the special guest was Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler.  If it wasn’t for Carl, INSANITY, P90X, and SHAKEOLOGY would have never existed!

As you can see from the picture above, this ‘Super Saturday Event’ was over 500 people strong!  As I looked out into the audience I was overwhelmed by all the different types of people I saw staring back at me.   Young and fit and full of energy.  Others who had found Beachbody in their 40’s and 50’s and have a pep in their step that makes them the envy of their contemporaries.  I was also blessed to see and speak with people just starting their weight loss journey who shared with me that they know they have a long road ahead of them, but this was the first time in their lives they actually had hope and were excited about their future!

Hearing all these awesome stories made me think.  I wish I could bottle all these stories and share them with you. I have no doubt that at least one of them would give you new hope and encouragement to step out and pursue the live you desperately want to live.

Then I was reminded of a movie that my wife MADE me sit down to watch.  It’s called We Bought A Zoo. (Guys, it’s actually not that bad of a movie …. and it does have Scarlett Johanssen in it!)  But there is a scene where Matt Damon’s character is talking to his son, and this line totally jumped off the screen at me:

“Sometimes all you need is 20 Seconds of Insane Courage”

So I reached out to my team – THE CREW – and challenged them to muster up their own 20 Seconds of Insane Courage to share why they love being a Beachbody Coach with THE CREW.

The results were amazing and I had to share with you!  

First up is Coby and Emma.   Coby is a musician who found himself in a pretty unhealthy dark situation, but has found new life & energy.  Emma is a 18 year old College Freshman who lost 80 pounds and doesn’t have to get a part time job on campus!
