Getting Fit in 2014, Part 2

Part 1 of the plan to get fit in the new year was all about making a gradual adjustment toward eating healthy foods. It’s just one step at a time, eliminating the foods that you know are not doing you any favors.  This next part is about moving your body to the point of sweat. Yes, that is just another way to say “exercise”.

Remember back in school when you had to do P.E. class and you hated it? I remember that too. I was a math nerd, before nerd was even a word, and I hated gym class. Hated the uniforms, hated the calisthenics, hated being chosen last for a team to play whatever game we were about to play. Even in grade school there were kids who could play any sport with ease, and then there were those of us who were lousy at all of them.

Grade school was a long time ago for me, and probably for you too. We have learned since then that there are things we are good at, and hopefully we have learned to value those things about ourselves. I learned to put my math brain to work and built a nice career for myself. I learned to use my caring, coping, and problem-solving skills. But I was still not good at playing sports, and so for awhile I avoided exercise.

Now, here is the magic:  It does not matter that you can’t hit a softball with a bat, can’t make a basket even from 2 feet away, or can’t properly kick a soccer ball. You can still get fit without doing any of those things. You don’t have to go to a gym, either.

There are some awesome workouts from Beachbody now that are only 30 minutes long. Anyone can squeeze in a 30-minute workout, especially one that does not require driving to a gym! Click HERE to get a preview of P90X3 workouts!

Thirty minutes a day. Lots of modifications, so even if you think you can’t do a move, there is an easier way being modeled just for you. Yes, you can get fit – at home – with no gym membership – with no driving – in the sweats or shorts that you are most comfortable wearing. Just you and a DVD player. You CAN do it, the only questions is: Will you do it?

I am starting P90X3 myself on January 20th. Join me! You have a couple of weeks to get the program ordered so you will have it in time – Here’s the link to order the Base P90X3 Kit.. Let me know that you are IN and I will add you to my private Facebook page so we can all encourage each other. I’m looking forward to working out with you!

Tony Horton, Bringing It Again With P90X3

Once upon a time, I was lean and active. You could even say I was athletic, although I have no discernible physical talents.  The point is, I was strong and healthy, firing on all cylinders, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, clear-headed and sharp.

Then, maybe 10 years ago or so, all that nice clarity and brightness started to slide.  I ate chocolate-chip cookies for breakfast, nachos for lunch, and pizza at dinnertime.  I didn’t work out, and for some reason I was gaining weight. I didn’t eat all of that stuff every day, of course, but there was enough “low-nutrition” food in my life to cause problems. I was sluggish, didn’t sleep well, had headaches, and started feeling depressed.

Then I heard about workout programs that you could do at home, with  no gym  membership and little equipment. The name of the company that produced these programs was Beachbody.

The first Beachbody program that I bought was Power 90 Master Series (P90MS). At the time, I thought “Master” meant it was intended for older people, like those of us past 40. No, it turned out that it was for graduates of the original Power 90 who wanted more of a challenge. The P90MS workouts are tough!

I still have those P90MS DVD’s in my collection of Beachbody workout programs. My nephew started using them during the summer. So far he has lost more than 30 pounds and has graduated to the Extreme version called P90X.

The newest member of the Power 90 family is P90X3, released two days ago. The workouts are 30 minutes long rather than 60 or even 90 minutes like some of the P90X sessions. The shorter time makes it accessible even to those with hectic schedules. Most of us can’t drive to the gym and back in less than 30 minutes – so why spend the time behind the wheel when you could be finishing your workout instead?

Not to worry, you don’t have to have mastered P90X before tackling the P90x3 program. In fact, it’s the other way around. Once you have conquered P90X3, your next step forward would be P90X or P90X2.

I just ordered my copy of P90X3. Shipping is free right now, and if you order through a Coach (like me!) you also get a free bonus workout DVD called “On One Leg” and a free P90X3 hat ($24.95 value)! You also get free coaching when you sign up with a Coach so let’s get you started!
