Midweek Motivation

It’s time yet again, to get pumped up! This is a look back at one of the very first Midweek Motivations. Are you making the most of every day? Every opportunity? You have the choice every day to move one step closer to you goal or one step further away. Keep pushing, keep...

Fitness is BEST in Comm...

Fitness is BEST in Community! There is no way around it! You can love working out. You can love nutrition and finding the best ways to fuel your body. You can LOVE looking at new gear and sweet toys… but it will all be missing something without community. That is probably why you...

Pick 1 Goal: Ripped or ...

I have a few articles that I’ve written over the past few years that I find myself referring people to over and over and over, because they address some of the most common questions I ever get.  One is the “just do it” article when people ask about how to stay...

X2 Crew – Chris

Chris C. has been absolutely crushing it for a while now, as he went from out of shape hard-gainer to a chiseled physique. In fact, he just signed up to compete in the upcoming Beast Classic physique competition in Las Vegas this June! This video is from Chris’s P90X2 results, when...

Time Management

What’s a day like in the life of Coach Wayne?  I’m a fitness rockstar, the face of teamRIPPED, 2-Time Top Coach, and Beachbody legend.  It’s a quasi-celebrity lifestyle, right??  (I hope you sense my sarcasm!!!) Well, I hate to disappoint you all, but NO!  I’m...

Picking your FIRST Prog...

Picking your first program is a little harder now than it was when I started LOL! Beachbody has so many choices and great programs that it has given people more to think about. Before we get into what the teamRIPPED Nation thinks and what I think, let’s look at some of the overall...

Terry’s P90X2 Res...

Terrance crushed P90X and had results unlike most I’ve seen.  He then joined our “X2 Crew” in 2012 brought that same intensity to P90X2.  He keeps getting more and more shredded!  I love to see this guys progress!  Congrats Terrance!  You rock man!  Be sure...

Midweek Motivation

Time for another VIDEO Midweek Motivation! Did you know that the BEST way to stay engaged and motivated is with teamRIPPED? LOL I’m sure that’s why you are here :-) But really, staying plugged in with teamRIPPED in Challenge Groups is HUGE! I run all our groups on Facebook now...

Confession Time

If you’ve been a part of any teamRIPPED Challenge Groups, you know that sometimes people feel the need to “confess” about certain things. It often goes something like this… “I really screwed up on my nutrition and ate a whole bag of chips.” “I...

When is the BEST time t...

Those of you who know much about my habits, know that I have always worked out first thing in the morning. I get up at 4:30 to 4:45, and start my workout about 5:30 every day.  This has benefits and drawbacks. I feel the benefits FAR outweigh the drawbacks. Strengths of the Morning...

61 and Ripped!!!

“LIFE IS GOOD”.  That’s what you hear Karl say every time he checks in.  And he really means it!  He’s a strong believer who is confident that he came across my path for a reason, and while the hard work has been all his, he’s found teamRIPPED and my input...

Midweek Motivation

I thought we needed to jump back on some of my favorites. Are you gearing up for summer? Don’t be a victim! Plan ahead and take charge! The small, incremental changes we do day in and day out are what compound into HUGE rewards and changes!       LOL!!! Thanks...

Keep Pushing: The Next ...

I got a great email a couple weeks ago from a teamRIPPEDer named Josh, asking me to blog about a certain situation that may happen to you. This was what I heard: “I believe that there are many of us who put in hard work with the nutrition, workouts, getting the supplementation,...

Easy Foods for Weight L...

Easy foods for weight loss can be found all around you. Most are pretty common, ordinary foods. You don’t have to have a HUGE budget or be a professional chef to cook for weight loss. Easy Foods for Weight Loss Truth be told, this title is a little misleading. You know what foods...

Ron Got Shred!!

Ron made a name for himself in our teamRIPPED “Misfit Challenge” group.  Ron’s transformation is one that simply blows me away.  He went all 90 days without a single cheat meal, with 100% dedication, he wore a weighted vest to workout in, and he dug deeper than just...

Midweek Motivation

How are your goals coming along? Are you still PLUGGED IN and staying committed? Make each day count!!! Be the teamRIPPED Nation!           ×Related Posts:No Related...

Les Mills PUMP Review

Les Mills Pump Review — Get ready for a rocking time! Les Mills Pump is a BLAST!  It’s been a while but I really love this workout. I wanted to re-post my review as Beachbody has some GREAT deals on Les Mills Pump Challenge Packs this month (And Les Mills Combat too).  This...

The teamRIPPED Highligh...

The teamRIPPED Highlight Reel is here! Right around the start of the new year, I asked for people to submit pics and footage of themselves and the work they have done with Beachbody and teamRIPPED. There was a lot of pics and footage to work through for the teamRIPPED Highlight Reel....

Miguel — WOW!

This is one of my favorite P90X transformation videos ever!  Miguel’s video will absolutely FLOOR you!  Once you watch it for yourself, you will see why!!  Miguel is a great guy, and a great member of our team.  He has since gone on to refine his results with Insanity, X2, and...

Midweek Motivation

We’ve been motivated by these people more times than we can count. So why not check out what they are doing to motivate on social media. Your Beachbody trainers!!! Tony Horton @tonyshorton    He’s been doing it for a while :-) ‘Merica Shaun T...

TR Suggestion Box ̵...

A couple weeks ago now I posted about the TR Suggestion Box. One thing I said I was going to use that suggestion box for was creating a post on some (hopefully quicker) Q & As. Keep those comments and questions coming. There have been some really great ideas and topics brought up and...

Don’t Get Ahead o...

Goals are really important to have. Forward vision is also really important. But don’t set your eyes too far off in the distance when you think about your fitness. When we focus too far ahead, we tend to lose sight of the things right in front of us. Those things that matter right...

True Talk from Brandon

This Hall of Fame video is different than most you are used to.  Rather than some killer music matched to photos and videos, this is Brandon telling his story …. a story MANY of you can probably relate to.  Brandon was not coached directly by me, but rather by a guy I coached who...

Midweek Motivation

You have a little over 100 days until summer officially begins. So what are you going to do about it? Summer bodies are made in the cold, winter months. Get after it NOW! START NOW! I am always only a comment or email away (coachwayne@teamripped.com). NEVER hesitate to reach out to me for...

Tuna and Mercury

Tuna and mercury? How much is too much? Is it hurting me, my progress, my fitness? This is actually the first post idea from the teamRIPPED Suggestion Box I posted. It came in from two guys. Ian H. and Matt O. Both asked roughly the same question: How concerned should we be about the...

Keeping Balance

I want to talk about BALANCE.  And no, I’m not talking about med ball push ups or weighted pistol squats!  I’m talking about balance in your life. As much as I like to focus on the workouts and nutrition (and I should since I’m your coach LOL), it’s important to...
