Life in the Fast Lane

Life in the Fast Lane A few weeks ago I wrote an article about how to help take you from the couch to fit in nice easy slow steady steps.  The reason for that was that it seemed that I had a lot of customers “overwhelmed” by all the  changes coming to them at once so I broke it down to help them make progress and stay on...

The WHY!

The WHY! Why are you working out? Why are you here on the GooBurner’s team page reading this? Why are you pushing play? Why are you studying P90X, Insanity, Pump, and watching YouTube videos to decide if you even WANT to push play? You can do all the research and planning you want, but if you haven’t asked...

Saving Money

Saving Money We are all on a budget.  Some of us have tighter budgets than others.  But we all have to think before we spend, whether it be on fitness, food, or anything else. After spending 2 years (yes, I started P90X way back in March of 2010) eating right and exercising, I’ve learned a few things about getting...

The Answer

The Answer I get asked all the time about how to stay motivated. Starting P90X / Insanity / Power 90 / etc. is not hard! Staying with it is what’s hard! So many people start strong but fade fast.  Either they cave in to the diet and don’t see results, or they get tired and start to skip workouts, or they let...

Re-Dedicate

Re-Dedicate Sooner or later it happens to everyone.  You are in a great groove, working out, eating healthy, and then something in your life changes and knocks you out of that groove. It can be your job all of a sudden requires you to travel, your kids’ schedules change as they get older and more involved with after...

Surprise! You Are Accountable

Surprise!  You Are Accountable I recently set up a Fall Challenge for the GooBurners team as I wanted to get people motivated again and for us to all share in the experience as a small dedicated team.  Nothing brings people together like struggling together on the same task as you encourage, motivate, and help each other achieve the...

Quit Your Crying

Quit Your Crying We all fall into ruts.  I have had great success with P90X and have even gone so far as to teach it to others as the one “leading” the workouts.  However after achieving a certain level of fitness I started to explore other areas such as the One on Ones and Insanity to keep pushing myself and my...

Keep Your Core Tight?

Keep Your Core Tight? You hear it over and over again from both Tony Horton and Shaun T.  Keep your core tight, but what does that really mean? Let’s face it when you first start out doing the exercises you are trying to learn the moves, trying to do them with intensity, trying not to bonk or burn yourself out, and trying to...

You Gotta Stretch

You Gotta Stretch I’ll admit it I fell into the trap of “I’ve been doing P90X for awhile and I know what I’m doing” so that I felt I could just do some workouts and not others. It all started about four or five weeks ago when I started to travel again for work and I was having to work extra hard on my nutrition. ...

Other Activities

Other Activities We all enjoy the Beachbody workouts whether it is P90X, Insanity, One-on-One, Turbo Fire, or any of the other amazing workouts, but when it is summer time and is just so darn nice outside you have to do “other activities” to get your exercise. Don’t get me wrong I still do the Beachbody workouts year...

You Are Stronger Than You Think

You Are Stronger Than You Think I have learned a lot about myself as I continue on this fitness journey and one of the things that continues to amaze me is how far you can push yourself.  You know that feeling that you are done, cannot do one more repetition, and then from somewhere deep inside you somehow do that one more...
