Dealing with Injuries W...

Dealing with an injury or set back when you are working out is hopefully something you won’t have to do. But over time, it is definitely a possibility. So many of us have old injuries that like to pop up when we start getting in shape and asking more of our bodies. I have dealt...

Fail to Succeed

Failure.  We all hate it!  We hate to fail.  We much prefer success.  But guess what?  You can’t have success unless you make yourself vulnerable to failure.  Do you want success with your P90X / Insanity MAX 30 / Body Beast transformation?  You have to be willing to push yourself...

Thank you teamRIPPED!

I just wanted to say Thank You to all of teamRIPPED for what you have made this team into. As I was looking at some old transformation stories this week, I was blown away by all the memories that came back. So many people dropping the excuses and going for ripped. Living radical and...

Wake Up Call

With it only be a couple weeks into the new year, you might think we don’t need this yet… but I am already feeling we do! We need a wake up call! Setting the right mindset can make all the difference as we start a program or fitness journey. You need to know what to expect....

Muscle Actions: Concent...

I still like seeing that old Planet Fitness commercial with a bodybuilder getting a tour of the gym. The employee asks the man what he does for a living. His response is, “I lift things up and put them down.” It’s his response for everything! Now lifting may seem that easy but...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year teamRIPPED! Are you ready for 2015?! I hope you are! The new year is a great time to reflect. Think about where you have been and where you are going. What do you want out of 2015? What are you going to do to make it happen? I want to keep this simple. We need to WRITE IT...

You do You: FOCUS

I have a feeling that this time of year is going to be challenging for a lot of people on teamRIPPED. If you have never done a holiday season living life with your new focus, get ready! I hope all of you have a support system around you. I hope you have people that are supporting you and...

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...

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...

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....

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...

Avoiding Temptation At ...

Over the last week or so I have asked you guys and gals what are some of your most challenging temptations. Overwhelmingly, it was “FOOD AT HOME” that seems to be the biggest temptation for most people. So I thought it would be useful to give you some of my tips on how I beat...

R U Losing Motivation??

This was one of my VERY first posts when I started teamRIPPED! And man, it still holds true today. Take a little trip back to the beginning… and get motivated! One thing I absolutely LOVE about the P90X workouts (and the other Beachbody workouts for that matter), is the little...

Are you running on E? Has a busy Fall got you down? Well it’s time to pick yourself up and shake it off. It’s about progress. Your dreams, your goals, all happen one day at a time. You can’t give up. Each day matters and each day can move you closer to your goals. Get...

A double transformation?!?! You bet! Both James and Josclyn send me in their transformations… and they are both awesome! I decided to combine them in a post to give you a double shot of motivation! Their stories and lives my be unrelated, but they both are perfect examples of what...

Is it getting a little cooler where you are? Are you pulling on more hoodies and warm clothes? Don’t be a victim of the FALL STALL! It seems like every year we have the same thing happen. People are super fired up to get ready for summer. It makes sense. You will often be wearing...

Healthy Weight Loss

Healthy weight loss is a great goal! There are so many plans and supplements out there that promise the world but are FAR from healthy. From the thousands of people I have helped lose weight, I can tell you that perspective is one of the keys to healthy weight loss. Healthy Weight...

Working Out and Staying...

There are so many things to keep track of in your new nutrition plan. Am I getting enough protein? Was that the best time for my Results and Recovery? How many grams of carbs is a cup of broccoli again? It is easy to overlook a few things. One thing that is simple and should never be...
