I’m a Certified Personal Trainer and also a Beachbody Coach. I don’t make a huge deal out of being a Beachbody Coach, mainly because anyone can be a coach. In fact, the reason I became a Beachbody Coach in the first place, was to get a discount on their products.
Although I have a gym membership with Planet Fitness, I prefer to work out at home. When I go to the gym, it’s usually for something I can’t do here at home because I don’t have the equipment. But for the most part, I use my bench and weights in the comfort and privacy of my living room. It helps me to be more faithful (my one word for 2017) because I have no excuse not to work out.
The first Beachbody workout I did was Focus T25 with Shaun T. The second workout I did was P90X3 with Tony Horton. I bought it as soon as it was released. I knew the original P90X had been a very popular program, and wanted to give P90X3 a try, because it was only 30 minutes a day. I have limited time available, so I prefer shorter workouts when they will get me the results I want.
I was also interested in P90X3 because Tony Horton and I are the same age. Sometimes during Focus T25, I just wanted to yell at the screen when Shaun T was talking about the “old” people in his video who were in their late 30’s or early 40’s… saying if they could do it, I could do it… Here I am thinking, I’ve got 10+ years on these guys!!!! I thought with Tony Horton, I’d have no excuses because we’re the same age.
Today was cardio day, and while there is a Body Beast cardio, I decided to go outside the Body Beast program and do this routine from P90X3. Cardio with weights… actually a single weight. I had forgotten what a great workout this is! CVX combines resistance, variable speed intervals and endurance. It’s a great workout to get the heart pumping, burn off some major calories, and strengthen your core.
If you’re interested in any of the Beachbody workouts or other products, give me a holler. I can tell you they have honestly changed my life and allowed me to be consistent with my fitness program. Just leave me a comment below, and I’ll get back to you.
