Even though P90X and Insanity are primarily an American phenomenon at the moment, we by no means own the market on awesome transformations. Simon and a handful of other fanatics have been bringing it, teamRIPPED style, from across the pond in UK. And he’s got some AWESOME results to show for it!
What’s more, he is already “coaching” others on how to maximize their results with P90X and Beachbody workouts. Even though the teambeachbody coach network is not yet open in his country, and he has nothing financially to gain by promoting their workouts or products, he’s such a believer that he just can’t help himself! I can’t wait until coaching IS open in the UK, cuz Simon will already be off to a roaring start! Check out his results and story =
Simon’s Story =
In January 2011 I witnessed some horrific photos of myself. They were taken over the festive period. I had a fairly active youth participating in various sporting activities and going to the gym. I lost my way a bit but seeing those photos were real solid evidence that I had let things slip, BIG TIME! I then discovered a product called P90X and a company called Beachbody.
One round of P90X totally transformed not only my body, but my mind and my ethics around the way I workout. I’ve also witnessed ‘positive side effects’ in other areas of my general health and wellbeing. I’ve since become a graduate of Insanity and Asylum too. I know that using Beachbody products and nutrition can completely transform your life in a matter of months. Coach Wayne and Team Ripped have been fantastic in their support and I buy into their team ethics 100%. I’m from the UK so Wayne stands to make no commission from myself as I can’t buy the products directly through his sales links……but he helps me anyway with great advice and support. This is something that I emulate myself as I currently stand to make no commission out of endorsing Beachbody products. I’m waiting for the global expansion of Beachbody. I would love to become a coach upon their extended global reach, if and when that should happen. Until then, I’ll keep doing what I do. At first I was in this for myself and my family. I’ve since learned that it is so much more than that. It is my desire and even my responsibility to extend my fitness footprint as far and wide as possible, to as many people as possible.
We have a large group of people communicating on Facebook in the UK and using Beachbody workout programs. We BRING IT, UK style. Remember, the best type of workout you could do, is a workout you will do!
Simon has put together a great blog and website at www.theworkouts.com, so be sure you check that out as well!
Many thanks all. I'm truly overwhelmed with the support and this in unearthing a great number of people who are pushing play in the UK. Ian your recovery drink sounds about right. I use the Golds recovery formula as it is the nearest one ratio and ingredient wise available in the UK to the Beachbody recovery formula.
Great work Simon! Awesome results. I love your home gym set-up as well; looks like you have everything you need. keep bringing it!
Hopefully we'll get coaching set up over here soon. You'd make an amazing coach and will be a great representative of the UK for beachbody!
wow, great results simon, im also from the uk and currently 7 weeks in on my first round of p90x/insanity and already having good progress but want to make sure im getting things right, im eating good sources of whole food such as fruit, veg, tuna and lean chicken breast and pork loins and tracking all my foods on mfp, i am hitting all the aright targets, calores and 50/30/20 percentages for the fat shredding diet, a quick question simon is what do you use for recovery supplements? i use one scoop protein shake, 5g of l-glutamine and a banana, is this ok or should i do something different. thanks in advance for you time and again great results cheers ian

"I’m from the UK so Wayne stands to make no commission from myself as I can’t buy the products directly through his sales links……but he helps me anyway with great advice and support." This is an excellent point, Im UK based as well and Wayne has been extremely helpful, always quick to respond even though Im sure he must be sick repeating himself :)
