Who You Surround Yourself with Will Ultimately Determine Where You End Up!

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with” – Jim Rohn This is one of my favorite quotes and comes from one of my favorite speakers.  I was reminded of it last weekend.  My wife Kelly and I hosted a group of our top Beachbody Coaches on our team, The Crew, in New Orleans.  Not only was it amazing to spend time with these ‘leaders in the making’, we were also blessed to have four top Coaches from other organizations join us as our special guests. Dave and Monica Ward flew out from their home in San Diego.  They shared amazing tips on how they went from lawyer and school teacher, respectively, to earning over a million dollars in their current business. We also had the privilege of learning from Mike and Kelley Ryan.  This amazing couple just a…

I Am Sick of Feeling Fat! Why is Weight Loss Confusing?

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I swear that was my mantra from elementary school age until my early 20’s! Have you ever felt that way?  You decide you are ready to take that next step. You truly have a burning desire to finally start taking action to live a healthier lifestyle, but you have NO IDEA where to start!  There has never been more information available about weight loss, fitness, health and nutrition.  But what is the right plan?  There are so many options: Low Fat Diet Atkins Diet Paleo Caveman Diet Cabbage, Lemonade, Cayenne Cleanses Dukan Diet MMA Training Bootcamps Gym Classes High Cardio Low Impact Cardio Cross Fit P90X The Biggest Loser Personal Trainers Long Distance Running Burst Training Sometimes having too many choices is as paralyzing as having no choice.   Every time we read one report, see news broadcasts, or hear from a friend about a program…

The Storm Before the Calm

by Kelly Songy Nelson Life is full of ebbs and flows. I find, and many of you may find, that my times for working out are a big ebb and flow area of my life.  Right now, in the heart of the summer, it may be tough to stick with your workout program or your nutrition plan.  I fell off the workout wagon about three weeks ago.  No real reason why – just one morning off turned into 3 weeks off (I’m very much a routine-driven person). This morning I took a moment to reflect on life without working out.  My husband, Coach Jimmy, is SUPER disciplined with his workouts – most days he gets in two workouts thanks to having workouts that we are able to do from home!  I admire his dedication and discipline so much and he’s been such a great motivator and inspiration for me.  He…

Good News – Diets and Workouts are a Waste of Your Time!

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson   Yep, you read that title correctly.  More and more studies have come out that say over half of the people who start diets or workouts quit.  Think about how many people made the New Year’s resolution to lose weight.  Maybe you are one of those people.  Well it’s only been 4 months since the first of the year, how many of those people are still on their weight loss plan?  I would bet my money that the majority of them have quit. The saddest part of this scenario is the wasted money and time that was invested initially.  Maybe you joined a gym, bought a program like P90X or INSANITY, or spent money on a food plan like Jenny Craig. You know what?  I have to interrupt this blog post.  I have too much to say about this to capture it via print.   This…

Simple Tips to Help Prevent Sympathy Weight Gain

Just because she is gaining weight, doesn’t mean you have to! By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I have noticed there are a ton of blogs, articles, and books for women on how to prevent too much weight gain during their pregnancy. Or how to lose the baby weight after they have given birth.  But what about the men?!?! It was a little over a year ago when I found myself in that exact position!  My wife and I were expecting our first child. Everything about pregnancy and all the things that come with it was totally new and foreign to me.  All I knew is that I wanted to be the good, supportive husband and make my wife’s experience as smooth as possible. I had heard funny stories of crazy cravings. (Who hasn’t heard a good pickles and ice cream pregnancy joke?) But they definitely came fast and furiously.  The…

When Opportunity Knocks Will You Be Ready

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I have always been one of the most avid sports fans I know. From a very young age, I loved the drama of a buzzer beater or a last second Hail Mary to win a game! Athletes were larger-than-life figures who allowed me to play out my sports fantasies in my front yard pretending to be Troy Aikman, Michael Jordan or Nolan Ryan. I have also always been fascinated with the story of the under dog. The player the ‘experts’ said didn’t quite have the size, speed or athleticism to play in the big leagues, yet overcame the odds to shine their brightest on the biggest stage.  The history of sports is covered with them. Names like Rudy, Doug Flutie, Spud Webb, Kurt Warner, and now the latest sensation… Jeremy Lin! For those of you who don’t get your daily dose of ESPN or Sports Center, Jeremy Lin has…
