Dummies Pay for Shakeology

Dummies Pay for Shakeology

In the Beginning, there were Shakeology Misconceptions I was about to enjoy my daily Shakeology, but I’ve got to be real for a second. Four years ago when Shakeology came out, there were a lot of misconceptions about it. “It is just a protein powder, why is it so expensive?” Now, I think most smart people have done their research and seen that it is not just a protein powder, so that’s not an issue anymore since educated people have taken the time to do the research on this thing to find out why this is the most legit thing on the market. I mean, it’s got 70 ingredients! I won’t go into all that, though. I am not a nutritionists. What Still Irks Me What still irks me are the people that talk about, “I see the value. I see it is the best stuff on the market. But it is just so expensive…

You Have Value! Live Boldly!

You Have Value - Live Boldly

This video was recorded at Beachbody Coach Training at Beachbody Coach Summit 2014 in Las Vegas. It is My Seven Year Anniversary as a Beachbody Coach. I am an old dog in this fight and there were two things I was thinking of when Chalene was talking today. Number one, when she talked about the hill and the sprint, my career as a coach can be summed up into this. However, there were times I could see that was a benefit to me because I saw the sprinters going by me and I thought I must be doing something wrong. Has Anyone Ever Felt That Way as a Beachbody Coach? If you didn’t raise your hand – you’re a liar. You know you’ve been like, “oh, so and so made success club their first month.” “They were diamond in their first 30 days.” “That person is in the millionaires club…

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 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…

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…

2012 Year In Review

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I know it’s cliche to say, but seriously, I cannot believe another year has flown by!  And the thought of starting 2013 just sounds very futuristic to me.  As a kid I assumed by 2013 our world would resemble something from a Transformers cartoon. If you are a consistent reader of my blog, you know one of the mantras I repeat often is to celebrate your successes.  It is so easy to only focus on those things we haven’t achieved yet,  constantly looking to our left and right comparing ourselves to others successes.  But I want to challenge you to sit down, look at your calendar, and relive 2012 in your mind.  Remember where you were 365 days ago, and pat yourself on the back for the things you DID do this year. Like any good Coach, I need to follow my own advice and…

How to DIG DEEPER when doing the Shaun T INSANITY Workout?

What exactly does it mean to ‘DIG DEEPER’?  By Jimmy Hays Nelson If you own a television then you are probably familiar with the #1 ranked infomercial in the country: Shaun T’s INSANITY® Workout DVD Series. It claims that it “might be the hardest workout program ever put on DVD”. It also warns that you’d better be prepared to DIG DEEP. Cute phrase, but what exactly does it mean to DIG DEEPER? As a cast member in three of the INSANITY workouts (Core Cardio & Balance, Max Recovery, & Max Interval Circuit), I’m constantly asked what it is like to train with Shaun T. The concept of DIGGING DEEPER was new to me when I met him. Heck, I thought I was a pretty fit bad ass the day I went in for my INSANITY audition. I completed multiple rounds of P90X…how hard could this program be? Let’s just say within 5 minutes of the warm up,…

Help Wanted! Will You Answer the Call?

Help-Wanted-Sign

We have a Crisis On Our Hands!  Will you Help? by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Thank You  for taking a moment to learn about a very serious issue that I need your help with.  A few weeks ago USA Today ran an article claiming that by 2030, 50% of the U.S. population would be OBESE!  Take a moment and let that set in.  HALF!   Regardless of your own health and fitness level this is an epidemic that affects everyone!  These dramatic obesity levels can health care costs to skyrocket, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and most of all, it is killing those we love! Now that we have identified the problem.  What is the plan to solve it?  It seems like such a lost cause.  You may be asking yourself, “What I can I do alone that will make a dent in this issue?”   Alone.   Probably not much.   But…

We Are NOT Doing That Beachbody Coach Scam Thing!

By Kelly Songy Nelson If you’re a frequent visitor to Coach Jimmy’s Facebook page, you may have seen that we had a big announcement this week! We proudly and excitedly announced that I was officially a full time Beachbody coach! No more Corporate America for this gal! This has been a long awaited answered prayer for us and as I stopped to give thanks for this amazing blessing, I was taken back to the moment when our lives were changed by Beachbody… Jimmy and I had only been married maybe a year (maybe less) when a friend recommended Power 90 to him. Like most newlyweds, we were strapped for cash – I was working in Corporate America and Jimmy was acting and waiting tables, so spending money on some “as seen on TV” workout was not on my shopping list!! “But Kel,” Jimmy said, “if we don’t like it, we…

The College Dropout, No Experience Business Plan

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson “I would love to go do that, but I don’t have enough vacation days” Has this sentence ever crossed your lips?  It’s pretty common for most people.  I know it has come up in conversations with me and my wife many times in the early years of our marriage.  Vacations, medical emergencies, kids events, family gatherings all at the mercy of your corporate policy manual.  Frustrating right? Last week my wife, Kelly, and I took a trip with our son, Asher to visit my in-laws in New Orleans.  The purpose of the trip was two-fold.  #1 – My wife’s twin sister had a baby 5 weeks ago, so we wanted to see the new lil bundle of joy.  #2 – Kelly’s Dad would be in the hospital for a few days to have an operation and we wanted to be around to help.   Originally the…

The #1 Enemy to Your Health and Fitness Goals

Outdoor Summit Workout

by: Jimmy Hays Nelson  Last week I had the privilege of traveling to Los Angeles for the annual Team Beachbody Coach Summit.  It was a gathering of 3000 of the nearly 60,000 Team Beachbody Coaches from all over the country.  We get together to learn about new programs/products scheduled to come out in the next year, like the new P90X2! There are fantastic celebrations honoring people for their body transformations! But probably the biggest draw is the opportunity for people to workout with their favorite trainers like Tony Horton, Shaun T, and Chalene Johnson! A perfect example of this was Saturday morning when the streets in front of the Staples Center were blocked off for an enormous group workout with each Beachbody Celebrity Trainer taking a portion of the workout!  The energy, support, and excitement that morning was greater than any concert or sporting event I had ever attended.  People…
