Team Beach Body Beginner Help Please
Hi. My name is Amanda. I was introduced to this site by a friend, which I was hoping to have as my coach but when I signed up they gave me a random person that I do not know and do not know how to change, but that is another story. I am not sure if this(Power 90) is a good place for me to begin so was hoping someone could help me figure out if this is where I should begin. Power 90 and Turbo Jam both caught my attention but don't know which is better or if I should go ahead and just begin with Turbo Fire like I originally started looking at. Also, with Christmas coming and I am a single mother of 3, money is a little tight so I can't really afford to start the Shakeology until after Christmas and money gets back right. Will this program work without it for a little while or should I hold off until I can get shakeology? I am sorry for the questions, I am a dummy and like I said I am new at this whole thing. I am desperate to look good by summer time so I need advice on where I should begin. If anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Hang in there! Yes, you can start without shakeology if that is what you need to do. Remember though that it is only $4.0 a day and it is a meal replacement, so if you are already spending $4.00 a day an any meal then you CAN maybe afford it. I do believe that shakeololgy on a daily basis and a workout everyday is the key to reaching your goal! You can do it! You reached out and that means everything, because there is tons of support here for you!! I too have the goal of looking good by Summer. I have lost 27 pounds in 90 days doing Slim in 6 and Shakeology and keeping my calorie count every day with my fitness pal, and drinking lots of water. You can probably start with any program and just work at it consistently to improve everyday. As long as you are moving it will work! Good Luck!! Never be sorry about questions!! Jen

Hi Amanda
Well I wouldnt just start with ANY program...depending on if you have ever worked out before. You wouldnt want to start with Insanity or P90X or Turbofire. Depending on how much you want to lose , where are your problem areas, how old are you, have you worked out before , etc etc. What kind of exercise do you like...all cardio, dancing, some with weights or bands toning//I have done mostly all the programs. I will send you a buddy request and can get some better specifics and can better recommend a program to you
I went 4 months doing programs without drinking Shakeology. Theres some other things you can add to your diet for now. I have now had it for a month and wouldnt want to live without it.

hey amanda. well decisions, decisions.to answer this question better it would be better to know your goals but for now... when deciding, first pick who you want to be your trainer, chalene johnson, tony horton, shaun t, or whoever. so chalene johnson or tony horton? who do you think would motivate you more? now the difference between turbo jams and turbo fire with chalene johnson would be that jams has more dance moves and turbofire has some dance moves but mostly a lot of other stuff and cardio. either one of those will burn a lot of calories and give you results. turbofire is more difficult then turbo jams. and when it comes to power 90 and tony horton thats a great start up program because p90x is a great next step after. itll sculpt your body well. to answer this question better i would also need to know your goals.

Order your fitness program HERE

and when it comes to shakeology. its great. if it wasnt for that i would have probably caved on this diet awhile ago and wouldnt have lost the 70 lbs ive lost so far. i love the taste. and it has tons and tons of benefits and good stuff in it. read about and order shakeology here. if your tight on money with the holidays coming up which i completely relate to you on. just start your program and order it when you can. its great and helps sooo much. but isnt needed for you to start reaching your goals.


hope this helps. i added you as a buddy. shoot me a ? whenever.
