Today’s Workout: CVX

cvxI’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.

My favorite workouts are Body Beast with Sagi Kalev, and PiYo with Chalene Johnson. But, one of the beautiful things about Beachbody is the variety of programs available.

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.

I do like the P90X workouts. In fact, I liked them so much I went on to become a certified P90X Live instructor. (I’m also a certified PiYo and Cize instructor.)

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.

Who Are You Listening To?

Douglas Adams Quote

Who do you listen to? Who do you go to when you need advice?

I think this is one of the biggest mistakes we make. Why is it that if we want advice on how to handle our money, we go to our broke relatives and friends?

If you want marriage advice, why go to someone who has been married and divorced 3 or 4 times?

If you want parenting advice, why go to someone with no children, or with children who have problems?

No, maybe you just want to know what these people did so that you don’t repeat their mistakes. That would be OK.

Most of the time, we ask unqualified people for advice. Click To Tweet

But most of the time, we seek out people who have no qualifications to give us advice and ask what they think we should do.

If you want to be successful, seek advice from successful people.

If you want financial help, seek advice from someone who is wealthy.

If you want to know how to run a business, seek advice from a successful business person.

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. ~Proverbs 13:20 Click To Tweet

The book of Proverbs puts it this way:

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.
~Proverbs 13:20

Don’t try to do it on your own. Mentors and advisors can help you reach your goal faster, by helping you avoid mistakes. Just make sure you are getting advice from the right source!
