Weekend Update

Another week closer to your goals! Great work this week! I hope you are patting yourself on the back right now! You should always feel proud when you put in the work. That is what counts. Showing up, pushing play, and eating to your nutrition plan. My house has been under attack…...

Way to go Steve F!

It’s always so cool for me to see the people that win the TBB Challenge for the daily prizes, weekly, monthly, and beyond! I love reading their stories. Everyone has a different WHY and it is so cool to see what drives people to make life changing decisions. Just this week I saw...

What is happenin’ teamRIPPED!? Are you ready to be motivated? I threw out the request for the RIPPED XIV Challenge to show off a bit. They could post their pics and show everyone what hard work does. I am so thankful for the example that RIPPED XIV is. If you aren’t in a...

SPOILED!

I have been loving getting to go through some of my older posts! I hope y’all have enjoyed it too. There are some GEMS buried in teamRIPPED! This is still one of my favorites. Look out gang, cuz Coach Wayne is about to go off!!! Granted, I could take the politically correct...

The Winter Bulk

Bulking. Adding muscle. Packing on good weight. At some point in your fitness journey, most people want to add some muscle. You can definitely add muscle and strength while you are cutting body fat, but that really only works for those people that are starting out and relatively...

Weekend Update

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, In the lane, snow is glistening? LOL If you could only hear me sing ;-) Are you getting in the Christmas spirit?! I know I am! I love the season of Advent. Looking forward to the coming of Christ. Who wouldn’t be excited!? Keep pushing towards...

Griffin Gets Shredded!

Everyone starts at a different place. What bugs me is when I see people bashing other people’s results cuz they maybe started in better shape than other people. How stupid is that?! It takes hard work for everyone to get shredded! So don’t try to do this with Griffin! He put...

Fitness Integrity

Being a person of integrity is a big thing for me. I want my kids to have integrity. I want my employees to have it too. The people I choose to spent time with and call friends have to have it. It’s crucial! Integrity is so important because it really shows people who you are. You...

Dairy??

So what’s my take on “DAIRY”?? This is an oldie but a goodie! For those of you who have followed my diets, you’ll notice I never drink milk, and I hardly ever have cheese.  I do, however, use whey protein every day (which is a protein that comes from milk), and I...

Weekend Update

How fast are your weeks going? Mine are flying by! This week we got to see the release of Insanity MAX: 30! I’m pretty excited to get my copy. It really looks like the perfect program to get people going with some hardcore workouts without needing any gear. I really like the...

Davene’s Story!

Davene has an inspirational story that I think MANY of you can relate to.  Her video is a little different than what you are used to seeing.  It’s both her results, and her story, intertwined.  If you feel discouraged or don’t know if you’ve got what it takes to really...

Midweek Motivation

For this week’s Motivation, I thought we should look at the new MAX 30 workouts and some sweet graphics I saw online! These get me pumped up to try Insanity MAX 30! Oh man! I can’t wait to put this in some hybrids!!! You can check out Insanity MAX:30 under PROGRAMS, Challenge...

Insanity MAX 30

Insanity MAX: 30 is here! Are you ready to MAX OUT?!? Insanity Max 30 is Shaun T’s all new 60 day program. The idea behind Max 30 is to go all out for 30 minutes a day, without equipment, and until you have to Max Out. Once you Max Out, you record your time, recover, and finish....

Rep Ranges for Excerise...

When I started with P90X, I just did what Tony told me. And that is what you should do. I would max out on reps of push ups and pull ups and stick to 8-12 for the dumbbell exercises. Tony knows what he is doing and it was perfect for building a lot of strength, muscle, and shredding fat....

Finding Extra Protein

When you start to track your nutrition seriously, it can be hard to your macros perfectly. A lot times you can use foods that are primarily one macro nutrient and just adjust portion sizes. But when you are running Fat Shredder, it usually tough to hit your protein budget. Sometimes you...

Hey teamRIPPED! I just wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! I will keep this short so you can get back to your family and friends. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I am so thankful for all of you and what teamRIPPED has become. You are a real community of friends that I feel...

Thanksgiving teamRIPPED...

I love to get to post this each year around this time… why? Cuz it doesn’t change! Holidays are always hard when you are starting out and trying to create and reinforce new habits. I remember the first time I posted this all the grief I got about encouraging people to stick...

Don’t Over Think ...

We love to go all in on teamRIPPED! That is what has made this team great. We have had more daily, monthly, and quarterly winners of the BB Challenge than any other team in all of TBB!!! So there is no doubt that we drop the excuses and we BRING IT! That’s what I did, and that is...

Weekend Update

Each one of us has 24 hours a day. Most of us spend 8-10 hours at work… Maybe up to 1 or 2 eating… 7-9 sleeping… those are all good things! We should work hard, eat to fuel our bodies and just enjoy food, and we definitely need good rest. But you want to know what I...

Transformations Paying ...

One of the greatest things that has happened through teamRIPPED is the decision of various members of TR deciding to pay it forward. It makes me so proud and happy to see others passing their passion on to new people. I hope everyone finds a place to belong with teamRIPPED, but there is...

Midweek Motivation

This week’s Midweek Motivation is a bit of a HATER Edition. If you pursuing change and fitness is very different than those around you, don’t be surprised if some step up to try to bring you down. This can really come up over the Holidays if you are sticking to your plan and...

Condiments and Fat Loss

Condiments can really improve a meal. You know this if it is the 16th time this month you’ve had 10 oz. of chicken breast and 2 cups of broccoli for dinner. Sometimes your meals need a little help, but what condiments can you use that won’t be detrimental to your diet or...
