IMPORTANT TIPS!

Nutrition: Be prepared by getting a solid nutrition plan in place prior to starting. You can do this week to week or even plan out your entire month. It plays a key role in the success of this program. If you want to see INSANE results you need to spend some time getting comfortable with your nutrition. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. Follow the nutrition guide that was provided with your workout routine! If you have questions just reach out I will answer any questions that you might have.

Take Your Before & After Photo's: Make sure you document where you currently are. You will flip out at the end of 60 days when you the results. If you do not do this you will be very angry at yourself at the end of this program!

I have heard it countless times from people that forgot this step! They beat themselves up because they have nothing to compare their progress to! It only takes a few minutes so just do it! There is nothing more motivating than looking at your before and after pics and seeing the transformation! IT IS PRICELESS!

* Take your Measurements
* Take your before & after pictures
* Take the fit test

Pre Workout: Ensure you have enough fuel to get the intensity during your workouts. A pre-workout meal an hour or so before your workout is very important. But make sure not to eat right before you workout. These routines are intense and you could end up loosing it if you workout to soon after eating.

Shakeology is a good way to fill up the tank before a good workout! Added bonus it taste awesome and its good for you!

Early Morning Workouts: If you workout first thing in the morning you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out. I know many of us have crazy schedules and do not have an hour+ to get a meal in then wait before we workout.

Post Workout: One of the most important part of any exercise routine is a proper recovery. I cannot stress how important it is to add a recovery drink immediately after your workout you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while recovering from your workouts. The P90X Recovery Drink is a very good product and I highly recommend it. Shakeology also a great post-workout meal!

You May Be Sore:
Keep in mind the first week is rough! Expect to be sore and tired. Do not give up your body will adapt very quickly and in no time you will start seeing results. You may want to do a few of the workouts prior to starting just to get your body & mind ready.

Accountability:
Lastly post your Accountability Daily. The message boards are a great way to meet others that are going through what you are going through and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Send me a buddy invite so I can reach out to you if you don't show for a few days!

I look forward to getting to know you and leaving it all on the floor! Walking away from this a leaner and healthier person!

TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS!

GOOD MORNING TEAM ENGAGE!

Just one more day and we kick off the Thanksgiving Turkey Trim-down Challenge! I am really pumped to get this group started. I have been coaching for a while now and I want to pass along a little information to you to give you the best chances of completing your challenge! Many groups start out very strong and the first few weeks people are heavily engaged but then you will start to see a few drop then a few more. It happens every round so I challenge you to stay committed and don't be that % that quits! Don't be a statistic and commit 100% to this challenge and finish it a new healthier person.

Team Engage Tips: How To Stay Committed
  • Set Realistic Goals & Expectations

    Setting a realistic goal is key to long term success. Many people tend to have generic goals that are not tangible or realistic. So spend about 30 minutes and really find your true goal. Do not make it about weight loss! Make it about fitting into a smaller pair of jeans or dress! Make it about being able to see your toes! Losing so many inches off your waist! By setting a realistic goal you can then have a realistic expectation and will not get frustrated as easy and want to quit!

    --
  • The Scale Is The Enemy

    Measure your weight at the beginning of your routine and at each phase beginning and then put the scale away! The scale is not a true indicator of your progress! You will be transferring fat for muscle during your challenge and sometimes the scale will not show you anything you want to see! Stick to the measurable things that are true indicators. How are you feeling, Is your waist smaller, Did you fit into a smaller pair of jeans! This will keep you in the game and focused on finishing!

    --
  • Bond With A Team

    Staying in communication with your team is KEY to success! The more you bond with your team mates the more accountable you will be to yourself! No one wants to see their team fail and do not want to be the person that drags a team down! By bonding with your team you make friends and these new friends help each other daily to stay on coarse! Most people underestimate the value of peer support groups! In my book it is one of the most important aspects on long term success!

    WE ARE A TEAM! WE WILL FINISH AS A TEAM!

    --
  • Stay Within Your Limits

    When we first start a routine we may be a little excited and tend to over do it! This can lead to big issues for you! If you are new to working out do not expect to be able to keep up with the cast members of your program! They are in shape and you are just now starting so keep that in mind! Do what you can do and do not stress about what you can't. You will soon gain ground on the areas where you struggle!

    --
  • Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

    It is hard for us to not compare ourselves with others at times! Remember that everyone has a different body type and their body may do things that your body can't. This is about YOU AND ONLY YOU! You are not in a competition here so do not worry that someone else can do more push-ups then you! It doesn't matter all you have to do is do your best and forget the rest!

    WE DON'T JUDGE HERE! SO STOP JUDGING YOURSELF!

    --
  • Don't Quit

    To many people quit! For whatever reason they give up and fade away! If you truly want to change your body and mindset you have to work and you have to work hard! This is not easy and you have to commit 100% in order to change your life! If you are tired of being sick & tired then stop making excuses and commit 100% to YOU! Make yourself the most important person for 1 hour a day and don't let anyone or anything take that hour from you! Believe in yourself and great things will happen! Surround yourself with people that believe in themselves and believe in you and greater things will happen! I am here to push you and keep you in as long as I can but at the end of the day it is up to you to make that change!


    LETS DO THIS TEAM!!

Hi Coach Scott -

I could definitely use the added support coming into the holidays. Since I connected with you last, I have finished two Asylum rounds and have continued doing my Insanity/P90X/ARX hybrid and daily Asylum Relief. However, my nutrition has been slowly slipping over the past year. I have managed to gain back about 10 of the 30 pounds I lost during our original Insanity round 1 ½ years ago. I do not want to enter the dark days of the New England winter already up 10 pounds so the next two months are key.

I'm just recovering from a bad stretch with Achilles tendonitis, which, ironically, I did not get from Insanity but rather from hiking around my son's college campus in cold, rainy weather. As a result, I'm having to be a little more cautious with my Insanity workouts but am still powering the P90X and ARX. I just received Aslyum II and will dabble with the Ab Shredder routine and the Off Day Stretch but don't foresee doing the entire program until after the New Year.

I have an added incentive to rediscover my post-Insanity "svelte self" because I'll be celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary in December and I have potential to be stronger, fitter, and lighter than I was on my wedding day ... definitely something to aspire to! emoticon

Hey everyone -- I'm in for phase 2. Doing the recovery week of Insanity now. Really not looking forward to the 2nd phase. It sounds like a killer. Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see 4 pounds gone by the end of this month!

Keep pushing play!!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I would like to join you also if you don’t mind….I am currently part of another “Engage” Team, and this would be perfect for me. I am on Month 2 Week 3 of Insanity. I will finish my first round on the 11th of November, I plan to give my body a small rest (running only) for a week and start another round of Insanity on the 19th of November. This will carry me through the New Year…woohooo

So far I have had amazing results with Insanity….well amazing to me as I didn’t expect such wonderful results in 66 days. I don’t have a six pack yet, but with consistency and the proper nutrition I am sure I’ll get there eventually.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Been doing Insanity for two weeks but miss the weights. I'm going to do the P90X/Insanity Hybrid program so I'll be here until January! Have to work out early morning as my schedule doesn't allow many afternoons or evenings. Very committed to this and looking forward to the challenge.

I'm in for phase 2. Today was my rest day. Tomorrow I am starting my 6th week of my Turbofire/P90X hybrid. In the next six weeks I am determined to make more progress then I did in the first six weeks. I am starting by staying away from the Halloween candy.
