Are you looking to get in the best shape of your life?

Do you want coach that is responsive?

You are in the right place! My name is Andrew and I am a Coach! I am here to help you get through a program and reach your goals. I started from nothing, just like many of you. Although I had somewhat of a background in running, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started Insanity. As you can see from my before and after pictures, I had great success with the program! I lost some weight, toned up, and finally got that 6-pack I've always wanted! emoticon

Since I finished Insanity, I've done Asylum 1 and 2. I was going to start some P90X, because I've done the workouts with friends and I love them, but my arm has bothered me lately so I need to avoid the weights for a bit and let it heal.

I am here to help, post here daily with your accountability, or as often as you can, so we can all support each other and get in shape!

A few tips

Pre-workout
Before you workout you want your body to be prepared. Don't eat anything that will make you feel sluggish during your workout. I usually have a banana or a small shakeology shake about 1.5hrs before. I also use E&E (energy and endurance), to give me a boost for the workout. I have noticed a big difference when I take E&E from when I don't, so I really like to take it.

During the Workout
What if you get super tired and need break during the workout? Take one. Can't do some of the exercises? Modify. You will notice that as you get further into the program you will be able to get through more and more of the workouts without extra breaks. You will also get more coordinated at the moves and be able to do those crazy ones that you laughed about during the first week because they were too hard. I surprised myself many times during my first round of insanity

Post Workout
Some sort of recovery drink after a hard workout is best. I like the P90X Results and Recovery because it makes a big difference in the recovery of your muscles, plus it tastes really good. You can try this, or low-fat chocolate milk, or even just eat something healthy, but make sure it's in that first 0-60minutes post workout, because it'll make a big difference in your recovery.

Nutrition
Nutrition is the biggest challenge for most people. Track what you eat and you'll see the results you are looking for. This is going to be at least 80% of your results. You can do Insanity, eat bad food, and see almost no results. Nutrition is vital to achieve your goals!

Motivation
Some sort of accountability group is going to benefit you the most. This thread is probably going to be what helps you the most through your journey. You aren't alone! You have all of us here to support and motivate you emoticon

Cardio Recovery done! I was so tired today, it was good to have a recovery workout.

I hope I have more energy tomorrow, I'll probably do Max Interval Circuit. Round 2 starts Jan 1st for me, so filling in a few workouts until then. Keep pushing play everyone!

Today was Plyometric Cardio Circuit! Originally I had planned on MAX interval circuit, but I was short on time. January 1st I am starting Insanity round 2! Let's do this!
