Welcome Fellow Fitness enthusiasts!!!

Need some support and motivation? You have found a great group who can help keep you accountable to your fitness program!

Let us help you reach your personal fitness goals. There is no reason why you need to go at this alone! Together there is nothing that we cannot accomplish. "

We will help you succeed. We have done multiple rounds of P90X, P90X2 & Insanity and we know what works and what doesn't work. We know how to modify the program so that regardless of your limitations, you can finish the program!
We will push you beyond what you think you are capable of and when you emerge on the other side, you will be completely transformed.....

It doesn’t matter what size, shape or physical ability you may have, we will help you succeed by using this simple formula
Fitness + Nutrition + Support = Success.

No need to be shy about joining this group. We are just a bunch of ordinary people looking to reach our personal fitness goals by using P90X as a means to do it. Our group ranges from people who ordered P90X years ago and used it as a bookend, to those that just opened their Beachbody workout DVD's for the first time a few days ago. Whether it's your first time, second time trying, or you have completed a Beachbody fitness program and looking to do it something different - EVERYONE is welcome.

Now we understand that "Life Happens" and when it does sometimes we need support and motivation to continue on our fitness journeys. This group will offer support, motivation and information on how to get over those "Life Happens" bumps in the road. If you have any questions, concerns or just want to throw in your support to others - this group is for you!

Don't be worried if you start late, that just means that there is more of us that can help get through P90X. We will share success stories and who knows you may make a friend for life while getting into the best shape of your life!

The theme for this group is, "We will leave no team member behind."

"Your life today is the result of your attitudes and choices in the past. Your life tomorrow will be the result of your attitudes and the choices you make today."
- Author Unknown

Before we start there are some things you need to know (note this equipment is needed for P90X programs)

NECESSARY EQUIPMENT

Dumbbells - You can use good ole fashion regular dumbbells from Wal-Mart or you can go to the extreme and get yourself a set of Bowflex® SelectTech® 552 Dumbbells or Bowflex® SelectTech® 1090 Dumbbells. Some of us used and will use again the CAP Barbell 40-lb. Dumbbell set from Wal-Mart. Some have since moved up to the Bowflex® SelectTech® 552 and/or 1090 Dumbbells.

Resistance Bands - The resistance bands serve as great and affordable alternatives to weights and dumbbells. They allow for more flexibility and easier storage as well. WARNING: This is something that you do not want to go cheap on. Some of the group members purchased the cheap ones thinking they were saving money and they broke. If they break, you cannot do the workouts!

Chin-Up Bar - A good ole fashion chin-up/pull-up bar found at any Wal-Mart or Target store will do.

Push-up bars - You can use standard push-up bars that can be purchased at Wal-Mart or Target. You can go with the P90X Power Stands designed and used by celebrity fitness trainer Tony Horton or you can do the good ole fashioned pushups with your hands.

Optional Equipment

Yoga Mat - You can pick up a good ole fashioned Yoga mat from Wal-Mart or Target.

Heart Rate Monitor: Unfortunately you can't go cheap on these. Some members tried to go cheap to save money and ended up paying more in the long run. If you are going to invest in a heart rate monitor invest in a good one. You will greatly appreciate your decision in the end. We have the location of a great website where you can get a good heart rate monitor for a reasonable price. Unfortunately we are not allowed to post links to outside websites, so ask us and we will be glad to send you the information!

Nutrition

This is the most important part of any workout program, whether it be P90X®, INSANITY® Hip Hop Abs®, Slim In 6® etc. Following the recommended nutrition plan is crucial to the success of the program. Planning and preparation are key ingredients for success. This is not as hard as it seems.
One of the biggest and most confusing things we found is figuring out how many calories we needed to eat each day. Well you don't need to worry about that anymore! If you need assistance in figuring out your calories post your request on the thread and someone from the group can answer your questions.

Optional Nutritional Supplement

Shakeology®, The healthiest meal of the day. Want a simple way to transform your health? All it takes is one glass of Shakeology® a day. This ultra-premium nutritional health shake contains the world's most powerful superfoods. It's the perfect combination of antioxidants, phytonutrients, enzymes, prebiotics, protein and many rare ingredients – including adaptogens, camu-camu, and sacha inchi – giving you the essential nutrients you can't get from an ordinary diet. Replace one meal a day with Chocolate or Greenberry Shakeology to increase your energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, improve digestion and regularity, and transform your health.* and it's just 150 calories.

Whey Protein - You may find that you need to take a supplement like this to reach the necessary protein levels found in P90X's Fat Shredder Phase. Protein use is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles. You can purchase this through TeamBeachbody or get it at any GNC, Wal-Mart, even some supermarkets are carrying whey protein.

Casein Protein - As stated above, rapid protein use us desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times; including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. What does this mean to for you? You are burning calories while you sleep!

Now that you got the proper equipment and nutritional requirements out of the way. What next?

WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS!!!!

When you write a goal, use the SMART acronym to help you make sure that you are creating something that you will actually DO!
S = Specific "I want to lose weight," is not very specific. How about: "I am going to lose 25 pounds or 3 pants or dress sizes."
M = Measurable Anything that you can measure, you can accomplish! "I will network with more people and make better connections for my business." How would you measure "more"? Try something like this instead: "I will meet and follow-up with 2 new people at every networking event that I attend this year."
A = Attainable Is it possible to attain your goal? When you create your goals and write them down you should make sure that your goals are possible! Now, you have to be cautious though. Don't go too easy on yourself. Your goals should have some stretch to them so that you can grow!
R = Realistic "I will get into shape so I can jump over a tall building in a single bound" Uh...nope, not going to happen. There are certain laws of physics that still make it impossible for humans to jump over a tall building in a single bound. Make sure that the goals you created based on reality.
T = Time Limited Give yourself a deadline. In fact this has already been done for you by the folks that created P90X. It is 90 DAYS!!!!

TAKE A BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTO AND WRITE DOWN YOUR BEFORE AND AFTER MEASUREMENTS.

You will want to take a before photograph of yourself along with writing down your before measurements. At 30, 60 and 90 Days you will also take a photograph of yourself and take your measurements. Comparing the before and after photos will show you how much progress you are making.

TAKE THE FIT TEST

Take the fit test prior to Day 1. This will give you a foundation to judge your fitness level. Having this foundation will help you get through the workout programs.

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS DURING THE WORKOUTS

Use the P90X workout sheets to track how many reps you completed, how much weight you used and as you progress through the program, try to do more than you did the previous time. Writing it down will help you remember what you did and your notes you make will help you remember if the workout was too easy, too hard, or just right.

Below is a link to the workout sheets.

P90X workout sheets

TRACK YOUR NUTRITIONAL PROGRESS

Keeping a journal of what you eat and when you eat it will help you track your calories, protein, carbohydrates, fats etc. Using phone apps such as MYFITNESSPAL, or LIVESTRONG or TAP & TRACK Calorie Counter (Diets & Exercises) will be of great assistance to you. Most of the group use MYFITNESSPAL to track what they eat when they are away from my computer. All of these apps sync to their particular websites so you have a well documented list of what you ate and when you ate it. Keeping track of calories is critical to the success of your personal fitness goals. These apps are also useful when you are out at a restaurant and you need to know if the food you are ordering is within the limits of the guidelines set forth in the P90X program. You could seriously damage your progress by ordering something that is high in calories and fat.

SO YOUR READY TO WORKOUT....THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

The size, timing, and content of your pre- and post-exercise meals and snacks can play an important role in your energy levels during your workout, how well your body recovers and rebuilds after your workout, and whether the calories you eat will be used as fuel or stored as fat. There are numerous studies out there on whether or not it is good to eat before exercising. Depending on your particular goals and your body type will determine if you should eat before a workout or not.

During the fat shredder stage of P90X, you may need to supplement your water during the workout. Mixing a supplement that contains carbohydrates into your water will give you that added boost you may need to get through those tough workouts.

Some may experience lactic acid build-up in their muscles and stomach. Other supplements may be used to offset this if this occurs.

During workouts you may find that your heart rate is rising. Knowing what fitness zone you are working and depending on your goals will depend on what fitness zone you want to work out in.

SO YOUR DONE WORKING OUT....THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

One of the most important part of any exercise routine is the recovery period. Rest and recovery is an essential part of any workout routine. Your after exercise recovery routine has a big impact on your fitness gains and sports performance and allows you to train much more effectively. Recovery after exercise is essential to muscle and tissue repair and strength building.

Studies showed that carbohydrates and protein combined using a 4:1 ratio is best.

After you've finished a workout your body is warm and your muscles are tight because they've been contracting over and over. Stretching immediately after a workout is the best time to lengthen your muscles which, in turn, will reap you huge benefits on the recovery end. DON'T SKIP THE COOLDOWN PORTION OF THE WORKOUT!!!!!!!

As always we need to add the disclaimer. Consult your doctor before starting any new workout plan.

Now... Let's stop talking and let's start BRINGING IT!!!!!

Hello Satishchannar -

Welcome to the thread. Stick with this group and you will receive the support you need to get through your program. As I says in Kristin's opening post, we understand that "Life Happens" and we will help you through those times.

As you move through your program, I am sure that you will have specific questions. I know I did when I began the program over a year ago. If you have any questions along the way, please don't hesitate to post them and we will do our best to answer them for you.

I am glad that you decided to join this group. Bring IT!

John

Hello Team!

Are you all getting as excited as I am to begin P90X? I wanted to make sure that you are all getting prepared for the next round. You should be already preparing all the things you will need to begin P90X. That means you should be reading over the P90X nutrition plan, making sure you figured out what level you will be eating at and double check your math. During my first round I made the mistake of miscalculating my calorie count and ended up in the wrong level.

You will want to figure out what you will be eating during the first round. Make a schedule. WRITE IT DOWN! You don't want to be messing with your meal plan in the middle of the program. You don't see elite swimmers messing with their goggles or swim trunks in the middle of a race. If they started doing that their times would suffer. If you start messing with your meal plan it may confuse you and you will probably become frustrated and we don't want that to happen.

If you are a full club member of teambeachbody you can use the meal plan wizard under the "Eat Smart" tab. That will figure out your meal plan based on your calorie needs. It will also print out a shopping list for you so you know exactly what you need each week. If you are not using the meal plan wizard and are choosing to do it yourself, that is fine to, it will just take you a little bit longer to do. If you chose to do it on your own, you can simply just following the meal plan located in the nutrition booklet. Whatever you do make sure you write it down and commit to it prior to the start of the program!

If you decide there is something in the meal plan that you do not like, you can substitute it with something else. Just make sure that you substitute it with something that is the same. For example: 1 oz of salmon is NOT equal to 1 oz of chicken. In fact 1 oz of Salmon is equal to 1.5 ounces of chicken. If you are talking replacing 8 oz of salmon, that is a lot of chicken.... Knowing this type of stuff is crucial because if you substituted 1 oz of chicken for 1 oz of Salmon you would not be getting the same amount of protein in this particular example.

Some of you are going to be taking supplements like Shakeology, a recovery drink, whey or casein protein or any of the many amino acid supplements. If you are taking supplements make sure you have enough to get through the program. You don't want to run out in the middle of the program. If you are on a monthly delivery program, you should be good to go.

In preparation for my journey, I ordered my results and recovery formula"

I will leave you all with this final thought. Success happens when preparation meets opportunity. We have the opportunity to do another round of P90X with a great group of people. They are very motivating, supportive and like me serious about reaching their personal fitness goals. I see nothing but success in the near future!

Often times you will see me end my posts with, "keep the faith". That is because success is like an act of faith. You have to believe it in order for it to happen!

Keep the faith, keep pushing play and Bring IT!

Here is a little story to get you thinking about your personal fitness journey. As you read through the story, think about how you've prepared... Preparation is one of the keys to success!

Sleeping Through the Storm
By: Author Unknown

A young man applied for a job as a farmhand. When the farmer asked for his qualifications, he said, "I can sleep when the wind blows."

This puzzled the farmer. But he liked the young man, and hired him.

A few days later, the farmer and his wife were awakened in the night by a violent storm. They quickly began to check things out to see if all was secure. They found that the shutters of the farmhouse had been securely fastened. A good supply of logs had been set next to the fireplace.

The young man slept soundly.

The farmer and his wife then inspected their property. They found that the farm tools had been placed in the storage shed, safe from the elements.

The tractor had been moved into the garage. The barn was properly locked. Even the animals were calm. All was well.

The farmer then understood the meaning of the young man's words, "I can sleep when the wind blows."

Because the farmhand did his work loyally and faithfully when the skies were clear, he was prepared for the storm when it broke. So when the wind blew, he was not afraid. He could sleep in peace.

How does this story relate to our health, wellness and fitness? When you're prepared, you have nothing to fear. Preparation is the key to success in any fitness program. Preparing yourself so you have proper balance in mind, body and spirit will also help you be successful.

So ask yourself this question. Can you sleep when the wind blows through your life? I think you can if you have the proper mindset and prepared for what is coming..... Bring IT!

Hi Coach and Hi Group!

I am Nikki and I'm in need of a support system for my next try at P90X! I completed 30 days about a year ago, lost 17 pounds, and was feeling great. Then for some reason I stopped...not it's a year later and i've gained it all back, weighing the most i've ever weighed. I'm definitely ready to really do it this time and hold nothing back. (hoping my recent ankle injury doesn't effect anything...)

This holiday weekend i'll be catching up with friends, going to a family reunion, redoing my living room, and buying food to start P90X next week!!

This seems like a great group and i'm excited to work with you all.

Thanks for the info and great motivational quotes! (looking forward to the Facebook page)

~Nikki

P.s. 2 questions after reading through the information:
- What is the website for heart rate monitors?
- What is the main difference/uses between Whey Protein and Casein Protein?

Thank you!!

Nikki - Hi !!! So glad that you found this thread. You will find this group to be very supportive. We've all been through the ups and downs of weight management. I'm a firm believer that following the workout schedule + nutrition + SUPPORT = success! We'll get you there! I have lost 12 pounds since the beginning of this year....the vast majority of that weight loss was due to P90X2 that I just finished recently.

We'll post the HRM website and answers to your protein supplement questions ASAP.

Again - very glad to have you on board!

If you have a Facebook account, I would strongly encourage you to request to join our page. Search for "Elite Home Fitness" page. Request to join and we'll make sure to have you added. It is a private page - there are over 150+ of us. Wonderful support group - all kinds of people - all different fitness levels. I talk with this group daily and they inspire and motivate me to keep going!

We'll reply back soon to your questions - have a wonderful weekend.

Talk to you soon!

Hi,

I'm starting on Monday, my first time through. I'm 37 years old, 175lbs. I could probably stand to lose a few lbs, but mostly I'm just hoping to get in decent shape. If I finish 90 days on 175lbs but much fitter then I'll be more than happy. I'm doing the fit test in a little bit and will update my profile with the results. I'm thinking some support and accountability will definitely help me so do you mind if I join this group?

I have the equipment ready to start. I live in an old cottage in the UK, so I don't have anywhere I can do pullups without pushing my head through the ceiling, but I've got some good quality resistance bands and a door anchor all sorted already.

I've been reading the nutrition plan over and over, and calculated myself as a Level 2 nutrition level. I know I'm going to find the workouts hard, but I'm sure I'm going to find the nutrition side really hard. I've used MyNetDiary before to record Calories in, I'll carry on using it for this, but I know that for me sticking to the plan is going to be hard. I won't be eating junk, don't get me wrong, but it's going to be hard for me to get 2,400 of the right mix of calories in each day.

Anyway, I can't wait to start on Monday, I'm off to record some numbers from the fit test now.

RE: P90X - STARTING SEPTEMBER 2nd-15th!!! Get ready to BRING IT!

I'd like to join the group - looks like a good one. I fell short of a challenging athletic goal recently & I know it's because I wasn't in the shape I needed to be in. I believe that P90X is the program that will help me get into the pre-event base shape I need to be in to perform well the next time. I've had P90X for a few years, but haven't completed a full 90 days yet. My goal is to change that trend, Bring It and Finish! I'll record my current status tomorrow and will start my program on Monday, Sep 3rd. I'm anxious to start and can't wait to see the results.
