Motivating Others

Over the past couple years, I’ve posted a lot about motivation … because I know how important it is to stay motivated. I get a lot of motivation from the amazing transformations of others who have ROCKED it.  And that’s what the teamRIPPED Hall of Fame is all about...

Check Your Ego

“Don’t let your ego get in the way.” — Tony Horton When I used to workout in the gym, my ego was ALWAYS in the way.  I didn’t want to do an exercise I’d fail at (like pullups) or that would show my weaknesses (like anything having to do with...

Weekend Update

Man this week flew by! The one perk to keeping busy is that time really does move! I am excited for another weekend. I got quite a few emails this week with teamRIPPEDers sending in their 90 day results. That fires me up every time! Y’all are putting the work and earning the...

Do More

The reason “why” you start a Beachbody program is really important. I’ve talked about discovering your “why“ in the past, but as you get further and further along your journey with fitness, it can be beneficial to revisit the question, “Why is this important to...

Timothy gets RIPPED!

Timothy K. has been a blast to get to know and have on teamRIPPED! His story is so familiar to so many of us. We slowed down at some point in life and got to place where we didn’t like it anymore! But unlike so man people (well outside of teamRIPPED LOL), Timothy decided to do...

Doing What It Takes

Over the years on teamRIPPED I have heard almost every excuse in the book. Basically everyone knows by now that excuses don’t mean much to me. So in most cases, people have stopped giving me blatant excuses LOL and I’m okay with that! But I still get online see so many...

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...

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...
