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…

Celebrate! A recap of the 2013 Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World Trip

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! What…

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…

How to Lead from the Middle of the Pack

How To Lead

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson 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…

Focus Image

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. 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…

If I Don’t Get Started, Then I Won’t Be Able to Fail… Right?

if don't start then won't fail

by Jimmy Hays Nelson Tell me if this scenario sounds familiar: For some time now you have had this nagging little voice in your head.  It comes and goes, but each time the voice gets a little louder and a little more urgent. “Maybe if you changed your eating patterns, you would have more energy. If you had more energy, maybe your performance at work would be better and get you that raise!’ “The doctor said if something doesn’t change, prescription medication is your only chance of living a ‘normal’ life” “You had so much confidence in high school when you were playing sports.  Where did that swagger go?  Maybe if you exercised we could regain that invincibility!” So you find yourself looking around for answers.  Maybe you ask your friends what they do. You Google search ‘Celebrity Diet’. You actually sit and watch the whole P90X infomercial wondering if…

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…

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…

The New Jan Brady

By Kelly Songy Nelson For those who don’t know me, I’m a cheesy family sitcom fan – The Brady Bunch, Full House, Dick Van Dyke…all my favorites!!!  And it’s funny how sometimes the lessons in those shows can bleed into real life! As I was reflecting on 2013, an episode of The Brady Bunch popped into my head… Jan was unhappy with who she was – she was the middle child and thought she wasn’t good enough or pretty enough or popular enough.  In this particular episode, she made a drastic change with a quick fix – a wig.  She stepped out at a school function as “the new Jan Brady” and the reaction she received was not the one she expected.  Her new look didn’t make her smarter or prettier or more popular or a better person. It actually caused a lot of pain because it was just a…
