The Shift Shop Is Coming Summer 2017

I am so freaking excited that Beachbody has officially announced its newest fitness program called Shift Shop by Chris Downing.  I got to work out with him in Punta Cana in April and it was so hard, but so good!

He has created a 3 week rapid results program to help you rebuild your body and reinvent your life.  It doesn’t matter where you came from.  Or where you’ve been.  You can always reinvent yourself.  When you have someone like Chris Downing to train you, someone who genuinely cares about you and your goals then the sky is the limit.

He seriously is the male version of Chalene Johnson from a motivational standpoint.  He makes you feel like you can do anything you put your mind too which is definitely the TRUTH!  It’s about believing in yourself, not letting your past define you because you are not going that way.  Look forward, chin up, lets change your body, your mind and your health for good.

What is the Shift Shop Workout?

  • It is a 3 week rapid rebuild program.
  • It is for anyone who wants to ramp up their fitness fast.
  • It goes from basic 25 minute workouts to advanced 45 minute routines, all while honoring your nutrition for optimal results.
  • It’s great for all fitness levels.  If you have a lot of weight to lose, shift shop will be your on-ramp to fitness.  If you have spent time away from your regular routine, Chris will lead you through a fitness tune-up.
  • The workouts are 25-45 minutes a day, 6 days a week for 3 weeks.
  • There is a workout modifier in every workout.
  • It is available on July 12th 2017 so make sure you get on my list so that you stay up to date on the latest release information.

Who Is Chris Downing?

Chris is a NASM certified personal trainer with one goal in sight.  To help you accelerate the change you have always wanted.  As the creator of the Shift Shop fitness program, Chris’ engaging, motivation based approach lets you grow stronger both physically and mentally.  It is so much more than helping you get fit and lose weight.  It’s about shifting your body and mind to a place that allows you to reinvent yourself.

Chris takes the most results-driving training methods-effective for everyone from pro and amateur athletes to the everyday gym-goer and tailors them to help you achieve significant total-body transformation.  This includes shorter workouts with exercise intervals that help you burn fat and reshape your physique at lighting speed.

Get In The Shift Shop Launch Accountability & Support Group!

I  will also be hosting the very first accountability and support group for the Shift Shop Workout Program in Summer 2017.  The program launches mid-July which means we will kick off our Shift Shop Accountability Group shortly after that. We will walk you through meal planning, food prep, mindset, modifications, daily accountability and support.  If you want to be on the list to get our personal mentoring and support in rocking your results make sure you let me know you’re interested by filling in your contact information below to get involved.

My Favorite Things

If you’re interested in improving your personal well being this year, you deserve more than just chocolate…and if not, you deserve to treat yourself!

I put together this list of my must-haves that you can use to shop for yourself (wink, wink), or use to inspire a gift for a special woman in your life.

These are some of my favorite things:

For your Hair:

Second Day by Unite. I get it at my hair salon, but you should be able to find it in the cosmetics department of your pharmacy, or of course online. I use this after I wash and dry my hair to give it a smoother, silkier finish and reduce the fly aways. It blends right into my hair and is never sticky or stiff. Great for gals with thick hair that has a mind of its own. My hair is super thick and it takes a long time to wash and dry and style, so I try to go a day in between washes or sometimes even two if I can get away with it.

 

For your Kitchen:

OXO Good Grips GreenSaver Produce Keeper:  Who else gets excited about kitchen gadgets? This is coming from a gal who used to screw up Mac & Cheese!
As much as I eat veggies🍅🍆🌽🌶🍄, some of them always go bad so I’ve invested in 2 large, 1 medium, and 1 small of these.  Pay for themselves in just a few months!

 

For your Workout:

Beachbody Performance Energize:  I used to LOVE my pre-workout powder until I found this, and now I can’t live without it.  I take Energize before every workout to help me sharpen my focus, push harder, and last longer—because every ounce of extra energy means better results. Energize contains key ingredients scientifically shown to buffer lactic acid buildup and delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue, improve performance, and help you push with maximum intensity.  Plus it’s NSF certified, which means it’s safe for professional athletes AND Beachbody Performance Named Official Sports Nutrition Supplement of the IRONMAN North American Series.  If it’s good enough for the Ironmans (and Women) of the world, it’s good enough for me!

Beachbody Is Going International!!!!

Video Testimony: Using Shakeology Daily = No More Pills and No more Pain

My Brother-In-Law has (or had GERD.  According to PubMed Health, GERD (Acid Reflux) is “condition in which the stomach contents (food or liquid) leak backwards from the stomach into the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms.

Listen to his story on how he not only stopped having to take his medicine, but he is feeling GREAT, and no more stomach pains!

I LOVE hearing stories like this.  If you have any stomach/digestion issued and would like to see if Shakeology can help you, I can put you in touch with Andy to be your coach, or just order through his website here:
