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...

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. ...

Time to Modify

Time to Modify If you work out long enough then at some point you are going to have to deal with an injury.  Now it could be something as minor as a hamstring tweak or as major as a torn tendon or muscle, but regardless you have a choice to make once you are injured. You can decide to stop working out all together and...

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.

You Gotta Have Help!

You Gotta Have Help! This week I have to brag about how awesome my family is and how important it is to have a support system in order to succeed with whatever your goal is.

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...

Benefits of Being in Shape

Benefits of Being in Shape I live in the Huntsville Alabama area and as most people now know we were hit last Wednesday by a storm that produced multiple tornados.  I was one of the lucky ones as my home was not damaged and all I had was a few trees blown down and a lot of branches and tree limbs blown from my trees.  The people...

Why Do We Bonk?

All of a sudden, within the space of five minutes or so, you go from feeling pretty good to awful. Your arms and legs feel heavy and it becomes hard to catch your breath. You are forced to push...

Finished P90X, What Now?

Finished P90X, What Now? I finish up my P90X classes in a few weeks and the question I keep getting is “what do I do after P90X”? This is a very good question as it was one that I asked myself. When I completed P90X I was so pumped with my P90X results. I decided to go and do another round of it, but this time I wanted to get...
