Not Another Monday…

Do you know how many people are living in the same house they were living in 5 years ago?

Do you know how many people are working at the same job, in the same position they were working 5 years ago?

Do you know how many people are still dedicated to their goal of improving their health and fitness plan they started 5 years ago?

Do you know how many people who buy a Beachbody workout program actually complete them from start to finish?  I don’t either, but it’s not many…like less than 10%.

I did.  No coach.  No Shakeology.  No Challenge Group.

Just a set of DVDs, a workout calendar and a new set of weights.  September – December 2012 and I had AMAZING RESULTS!

Previously, I had starved myself skinny and created a habit of running extra miles to burn any extra carbs or drinks I consumed over the weekend, but I was still flabby after losing almost 50# in 2010.

I was SO OVER counting Weight Watchers Points.
I was SO OVER counting calories with My Fitness Pal

I was SO OVER the vicious cycle of starving myself during the week and eating whatever I wanted on the weekend, just to end up at the same spot every Monday.

Until I found Beachbody:

  • At-home Workouts
  • Nutrition including Shakeology (don’t knock it until you try it)
  • The accountability of Challenge Groups

I became a DVD junkie.  In a good way.  But I was one of the few that actually COMPLETED each program I purchased, submitted my results, and at least earned a free t-shirt (and several hundred bucks in cash and prizes for winning a few things).

And then came ON DEMAND…and for less than $100 A  YEAR I get every new workout, ALL the new programs, and take on EVERY new challenge including recently:

Shaun Week (who made me cry along with my sweat)

Shift Shop (where I lost over 10# in under a month)

Hard Labor (which has nothing to do with giving birth)

And instead of having to spend $60-$120 for EACH new program, I get them automatically as part of my annual subscription and I actually SAVE money and still get results.

You see my personality lends itself to needing a challenge…needing a schedule…needing the group support. And with Beachbody, I have all of that.

All you need is a coach.  And a plan.  You don’t even need a Monday.  But I can I help!

Submit your information below and I will be in contact in the next 24 hours to help you get set up with a workout, a meal plan, and small group support (including ME!).

Lets do this together!

Resolutions Into Results Support & Accountability Group

Alright it is the first of February and I have to ask you a question.  Are you making progress towards reaching your New Years Resolutions?  Are you turning your Resolutions Into Results??  Be honest!!!  Have you actually taken action steps to make the goals a reality?  If you are like most people the answer is NO.  Or maybe you were off to a really great start and you had vacations (like me) or you had to travel and you missed a workout or two or maybe you had a birthday party and ate lots of great food and are still beating yourself up over it?

No matter what excuse that you have for slowing down or stopping the change the bottom line is that you are not making your resolutions matter!  You either don’t have someone to hold you accountable, you don’t know where to start, or you just aren’t really that motivated to change.  I have heard it all, trust me…. I have been coaching for over 3 years so nothing I mean NOTHING surprises me!

But, what I do know that the mind is a powerful tool and whatever you put your mind to, you can absolutely hands down DO!

When I took those before pictures of myself I simply bawled my eyes out and then vowed no one would EVERRR see the pictures again.  I immediately decided that I would never ever look that way again!  I wanted to change WAY more than I wanted to stay the SAME!  The desire was strong!!  The one thing that I refused to do was give up!  I mean seriously, what is the alternative?  I wasn’t about to stay the same. Change was my only option.

I had the desire and the drive to make the change.  My body clearly had a different story!! It was sore, it was tired, it was out of shape and I mean WAY out of SHAPE!  But, what turned into 1 push up, turned into 5 and then 15 and then all on my toes and no modifications.  What started as 1 lb lost, creeped to 2, then 5, 10 and all the way up to almost 50 lbs.  It didn’t happen over night.  It happened because I truly wanted to make a lasting lifestyle change and I embraced the hard.  I embraced the good with the bad and I just did the best that I could!  It worked!

I seriously wanted to shout it from the rooftops that clean eating, Shakeology and Beachbody fitness programs work!  I didn’t have to workout in front of people, and I could literally workout when it worked best for me.  Plus I loved having a calendar that comes with each program that tells me exactly what to do on each day!  It’s a no brainer, I don’t have to try to figure out what is going to get me the best results.  It’s done for me.

So now here is my thought!  It’s time for me to help YOU turn your RESOLUTIONS INTO RESULTS just like I did 7+ years ago.

  • I am going to teach you how to meal plan & prep
  • Give you tools to help you make clean eating a lifestyle change vs. a crash diet.
  • I am going to help you with snack ideas and recipes that are easy to make.
  • I am going to give you daily motivation and accountability.
  • 24/7 access to our online support and accountability group.
  • A fitness program that meets your needs.
  • Portion controlled container system that will teach you correct portion size
  • I will cover topics like handling temptations, late night snacking, emotional eating, traveling and more.

Does this sound like something you would like to do?

If the answer is yes then join me for the start of our plan and prep for our next group!!

The requirements are:

  • I must be your assigned coach through Team Beachbody.
  • You must commit to replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the group (4 weeks)
  • You must commit to starting and finishing a Beachbody fitness program which we will decide on together.
  • You must be willing to check into the support and accountability group daily.

To get started, fill out the form below and I will contact you ASAP!

The All Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership

Team Beachbody launched a brand new option for its customers and coaches called the All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack.  It is crazy to think about life just 5 years ago.  Streaming was really brand new, people still had DVD/VCR combos and everything was moving in a DVD fashion.  You still went to the Red Box or or Blockbuster to rent a movie.  On a regular basis, Paul & I would head over to Blockbuster and browse the rows of videos to find the one we were going to watch that night.  Those days are gone, literally you never even have to leave your house.  You can pull up Netflix or Amazon Prime or On Demand and you are good to go right from your couch.  Times really have changed in just a few short years.

So why am I telling you this?  Well, because times are changing for fitness as well.  It is still the same process to getting healthy and feeling your best.  You have to put in the work to get the results and there is no quick fix.  But, there are now more options than ever to have access to the tools that can help you achieve the look and feel that you want!  Team Beachbody came into my life 4 years ago.  Every morning I would go to the basement pop in my DVD and workout in our spare bedroom in the basement before work.

I learned how to eat clean through my coach and our challenge group.  I found support in other women that were struggling to lose weight, tone up, juggle work life, and still find time for themselves.  I was forever changed because of the relationships built in that 90 days, my coach, the workouts, Clean Eating and Shakeology.  I know that the model of Team Beachbody Challenge groups work!  I know that it is MY secret sauce and while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea it truly did and still does work for me and my family.

I am thankful that Beachbody is innovate and is constantly thinking about how they can provide the utmost support & accountability to their customers and coaches.  I love that Beachbody didn’t dig in their heels and resist the change in times but instead embraced that our world is moving more digital and they have created this incredible Beachbody On Demand platform and all the programs that it includes for us to get results.

So the CEO of Team Beachbody Carl Daikeler announced a new option for anyone to take advantage of.  The Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership which provides total access to every program available on Beachbody ON Demand, plus future releases.  So that means that every single program Beachbody has ever created from P90X, Turbofire, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer to new ones like Cize, T25, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer and Chisel, Insanity Max30, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, Core De Force and more are on a digital library you can access plus anything new that Beachbody releases you get INSTANT access at no additional charge for an entire 12 months.

That is incredible!!!!  Starting on December 27th you will be able to purchase either an annual membership or the Annual All Access Beachbody On Demand + Shakeology Challenge Pack.  This is an incredible opportunity for me to help you get even better results.

WHY is this so Awesome?

So I’m going to give you my personal opinion on the new feature. I love the All Access Challenge Pack because it gives you:

  • 1 Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included, plus future releases.
  • Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on home direct)
  • Portion Fix (includes 7 piece portion control container system, eating guide, large blue container and shaker cup)
  • Business Starter Kit Waived if you choose the coach enrollment option.
  • You get all of this for $199 for the entire year  (12 months) and there is no monthly fee.

BOD, Beachbody On Demand, All Access Challenge Pack, Melanie Mitro

The points I listed above is worth thousands of dollars and for 12 months you are getting access to everything that Beachbody has ever created plus anything new through the year.  That is awesome but the real reason I am excited is this.  You can purchase this pass and together we can choose to start with for example, 21 Day Fix.  You can complete 21 Days of the program, at the end of the 21 days we can have a discussion around what program you are going to do next.  What your goals are, what you have already accomplished and how we can help to tweak your plan to get you results.  Maybe after the 21 day fix you decide you want to add in more cardio.  We can  move over to T25 or  Core De Force as the next program.  Or let’s say you have an injury that is preventing you from completing the 21 Day Fix, we can switch programs and move over to the 3 week yoga retreat until you are feeling well enough to go back to your T25 workout.  The key here is options that help YOU achieve YOUR goals.  We can mix, match, tweak and change your plan so that you do not lose steam, you do not get bored and YOU get the results that you want.

Each fitness program through BOD has the calendar of workouts and what to do when.  Each program has a nutrition guide you can download, tracking sheets and you have me to help walk you through the program to make sure you are getting the results that you want.  This is not about just starting and completing one program, it is about moving through each stage of your journey and entering into a lifestyle of proper nutrition and fitness.

I love this option because it gives you flexibility and creativity.  But the most important part of this whole thing is the SUPPORT!  Sure, anyone can just buy a program but where you see most people getting results is when they have a community of support around them helping them to get results! That is where the magic truly happens!

I used to be that girl that went to the gym, that bought the membership on January 1st and VOWED that this year would be the year I would make a change. I truly did have good intentions, but by the end of January I would find myself making excuses, eating ice cream after my workouts and frustrated with my results.  It doesn’t matter how awesome the gym membership is.  If you don’t know what to do when you get there, it is going to be wasted time and money for you.

So this year is your year!  If you are like me and you need structure, support, guidance and accountability then Beachbody might be your magic ticket.

I am inviting you to #1 take advantage of the All Access Pass and make me your coach!  Let me help you set some new goals to achieve your healthy and fulfilling life.  Whether you want to be a part of my accountability and support groups or not I am here to help.

I am kicking off my next group called the Winter Weight Loss Challenge through the Beachbody Challenge Tracker App.  You will set realistic and achievable goals, log your workouts, your nutrition and Shakeology daily through our app based program and I will be there 24/7 to provide support, accountability, guidance, recipes and meal planning to make this a lasting lifestyle change.
