Hey Everyone

Welcome to 2014! Happy New Year to all of you. I hope you all behaved yourselves last night.

With a New Year, comes yet another chance to reflect on where you currently stand, and where you are headed. This is true, not only for our careers and our education, but our health and lifestyles as well.

It is no secret that this is a popular time of year for people to make resolutions to improve their overall health. Luckily for all of you, being a part of this team, and this company (Beachbody), we have a lot of resources at your disposal to not only set goals for yourself, but to get the motivation and support to get there.

Beyond being a Beachbody Coach, I want to remind all of you that I am also a personal trainer, who has helped men and women of all ages reach their goals time and time again. I enjoy helping people lead healthier lifestyles and give them the tools to reach their goals, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions/comments/concerns you may have.

This week's topics of interest:

1. Both the P90X3 and Focus T25 Challenge Packs are on sale during the month of January. Both are $180 (over $90 in savings). Links should be live tomorrow (January 2nd). E-mail me if you are interested in either one. Challenge Packs offer tremendous value, not to mention getting Shakeology into your diet to start the year off right!

2. Speaking of Shakeology. There are 3 supplements that I take, that if someone asks me my go-to supplements, these are the 3. Creatine, Whey Protein, and Shakeology. That is what I base my entire diet around. Shakeology is my "insurance plan" for those days when I may not have gotten all of my fruits and vegetable servings in, I know it is backing me up. Remember that Shakeology comes with a "Bottom of the bag guarantee," so even if you aren't a fan, or don't feel as though it made any difference in your life during your 30 servings, you can return it for a full refund! How many products back up their reputation like that? Do yourself a favour and give Shakeology a shot. Start the year off with just 1 bag. Give it an honest try for 30 days, with regular exercise, and let me know how you feel after you're done. Make sure to order on "Home Direct" to get free shipping, you can cancel at ANY time, no penalties.

3. I just finished my 2nd week of P90X3, you can check out my progress video here.

4. I have completed my complete in-depth written reviews for P90X3 Total Synergistics and P90X3 Agility X.

5. If any of you have been thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach and helping others, trust me when I tell you that NOW is the time to do it. This time of year, is of course, the busiest time of year for people to make and aim for goals that they set for themselves. As a Beachbody Coach, you have the opportunity to help others by providing them with solutions to problems faced by so many. Join our team and get plugged into my January 6th Coach Basics Training.

Hey Everybody

Welcome to the last week of August! I can't believe it has now been over a year since I ran my first Tough Mudder! Time sure does fly. I know I sound like a broken record, but time just keeps on ticking by, whether you decide to get active and eat healthy or not...

This week's topics of interest:

1. You have until Saturday to take advantage of Beachbody's August promotions. TurboFire and Body Beast Challenge Packs are on sale for $160, and Focus T25 Challenge Pack is on for $180. I have mentioned in the past, even though it may seem early, the holiday season is right around the corner, so this could be a great deal to pick some gifts up for family and/or friends!

2. I have actually received a lot of feedback after my "Why I Dislike the P90X "Certification"" blog last week. One of the main reasons, it appears, as to why people decide to take the P90X Certification is to help educate themselves on the program. If you are a Coach, it can be a great too knowing more about P90X so that you can share that information with your clients/teammates. If you are just a fitness aficionado, then it could help you understand the program better to maximize your results. Either way, I am starting P90X University. Over the next several weeks, I will be educating all of those who are interested, on the program and the science behind it. This is a free 'course' to take, but I will also have some donation buttons live on my website soon just in case any of you wish to throw a few bucks my way based on the amount of time I am putting into this!

Hey Everyone

Wow, I can't believe we are reaching the end of summer. For some of you, summer may already be over. Of course it isn't officially the end of summer for a few more weeks, but everyone knows that the unofficial end of summer is when the kids go back to school. 

Whether you have kids or not, the return to school is usually a time when people start getting back into a more consistent routine. Let's face it, summer tends to be a hectic time of year, as so many people take holidays or have different schedules. Not only that, but BBQs, get-togethers, campouts, picnics, parties, long weekends, etc. all add to either missing workouts and/or neglecting your diet. Be honest with me and yourself.

Not to fret, however, as I always find getting back into a consistent routine is great for my mind and body. My brain enjoys repetition, as does my body. It is comfortable. For some of you, you may not have exercised in a while now. Well, welcome back, now is the time to get your sh*t together and stop dragging your feet! Now is as good of time as any, to finish off the last few months of the year strong!

This week's topics of interest:

1. Here's a story I shared on my Facebook page the other day (in case you missed it):

I want to share a little story with all of you. I recently interviewed for a Personal Trainer position at a high-end fitness facility. To be honest, I was completely discouraged by their lack of interest in both my CSCS certification and my personal training experience (I have been training for a few years now part-time). Anyways, it was made perfectly clear to me that all they were looking for was a salesman to sell training packages.

One of their packages that really struck me was a 3-month, 3 day a week package for $2500....don't grab your calculator, I will do the math for you. That is around $55/1-hour session. That is on TOP of membership fees.

First of all, I cannot, in good conscience, work for a company like that.

Secondly, and I know it is tough to compare, but in 3-month's time, a person could purchase a P90X Challenge Pack (for example), all of the equipment they need, get free Coaching from me on their diet, and still have plenty of cash left over to replace all of their clothes that are now too large to fit them because of how much success they will have in 3-months time, when compared to paying $2500+...

End of rant...

2. A friendly reminder that P90X3 is coming this winter! I haven't heard any more details, but I hope you are all as excited as I am!

3. My Body Beast Transformation Video now has over 17k views! Another view/share/like to help keep my momentum going would be greatly appreciated.

4. The TurboFireBody Beast, and Focus T25 Challenge Packs are all on sale until the end of the month. Let me know if you have any questions about these programs.

5. Shakeology 10-Packs are still available and as popular as ever. Let me know if you're interested!

Hey Everybody

I hope all is well! I officially kicked off my World's Toughest Mudder training the other day, so as I type this I am feeling extremely stiff/sore/tired. The perfect sign that training is new and going well!

Lots to cover this week, so here goes:

1. Probably the biggest announcement of the week (at least in my opinion) has been the official (or unofficial) announcement that P90X3 will be coming this winter! I am proud to say that I was one of the very first people online (from what I can tell) who brought this news to all of you. I was so quick on the draw, in fact, that Beachbody had initially asked me to remove the teaser trailer from my YouTube channel. I am guessing because I was getting more hits than their official P90X3 splash page! Anyways, check out this link for all of the latest P90X3 news. Not a lot is known as of yet, but you know I will share any and all information with all of you as I hear anything!

2. Unbeknownst to me, Beachbody has extended the Focus T25 Challenge Pack promotion until the end of August. So, until August 31st, you can get the Focus T25 Challenge Pack for just $180!

3. Beachbody's August promotion is not just one, but two Challenge Packs on sale! You can get either the TurboFire or Body Beast (with Shakeology, not the supplements) Challenge Packs for just $160! Considering Shakeology retails for $130, you are getting a program for just $30. Not only that, but if any of you are considering becoming a Coach, then Beachbody will also waive your Coach sign up fee ($40 value) if you purchase a Challenge Pack.

4. Since I am heading back to World's Toughest Mudder, I am asking (like I did last year) for any sponsorships or personal donations to help cover the costs of my training, travel and gear for the event. I spend a lot of my free time to provide a service to all of you (Coaching) for little to no cost to you, so if you would be so gracious to help me out with my trip to WTM that would be great. Better yet, purchase a program, Shakeology, or Challenge Pack, as you get something in return and I get the commission to help pay for my trip to New Jersey!

5. My latest shipments of Vanilla and Chocolate Shakeology samples have arrived, so if you wish to request a sample, or purchase a 10-pack, now would be the time to do so. I have Vanilla, Chocolate, and Greenberry on hand, so the choice is yours! The 10-packs have been a huge hit for a number of reasons. Not only do you get a better 'feel' for the product, but by asking you to help me cover the costs (I do not profit on these at all), but you can also try out more than one flavour before purchasing.

Hey Everybody

Welcome to the last day of July! Not only are we well past the half-way point of the year, but we are also heading into month 8. Considering I am heading to World's Toughest Mudder on November 16th, I better get training ;-)

Speaking of which, I am still in my off week prior to jumping into my training, which starts this Sunday August 4th. I was originally planning on starting Monday, but I have a wedding to attend on the 16th, so my schedule just lines up better if I start Sunday. Not only that, but this week off is going well. So well, in fact, that I am already getting that itch to get back to training!

This week's topics of interest:

1. If you are reading this on Wednesday July 31st, then today is your LAST day to take advantage of Beachbody's Focus T25 Challenge Pack sale. You can pick up the Challenge Pack for an all-time low price of $180, which is over $90 in savings. Get it today before it goes back up to its original price of $220!

2. If you are still looking for an accountability group, make sure to stop by and join our Team Fitness for Life group. For those of you who are already in the group, but don't post regularly, make sure to jump in and join the conversation. It is incredibly motivating and inspiring to keep pressing play.

3. Just the other day I announced the launch of my on-location personal training options on my website. There are 2 options to choose from if you live in Southern Ontario. First, I have Standard Personal Training Services for individuals or groupsSecondly, if you are interested in "test driving" a Beachbody product, then I can come to your home or business and lead you through a Beachbody workout, helping correct you for form and ensure that you get the most out of your workout.

Hey Everybody

I can't believe how quickly July (and this year) are flying by! For those of you who don't know, I am still making my way through Focus T25 (and loving it!). I started the Beta Phase earlier this week. I plan on doing 4 weeks of the Beta phase before jumping into my World's Toughest Mudder training on Monday August 19th. I am still having some discomfort in my right elbow...

I am also taking some time to finish my basement. I am about 95% done the framing (hoping to be done by this weekend). The goal with my basement is to turn most of it into an awesome home gym! Keep an eye out for updates on my social media outlets over the next several weeks as that takes shape.

Here are the topics of discussion for this week:

1. There is just a week left to take advantage of the free shipping offer for Focus T25 as well as save over $90 on the Focus T25 Challenge Pack! The general reaction around this program is that it is exceeding people's expectations (myself included). If you don't believe me, go check out my YouTube Channel to see my reactions to the workouts.

2. My Shakeology 10-Packs have been a HUGE success so far. I have already had a number of you requesting these. Because of this, I am completely out of my vanilla samples and only have 3 chocolate samples left. (I still have Greenberry as well) Not to worry, I have more Chocolate and Vanilla sample packs arriving later this week/early next week. These 10-packs are great for those of you who wish to try out a couple different flavours, not to mention witnessing the effects of this amazing product over a 10 day span. Please remember, if you wish to purchase, make sure you fill out this form and pay $50USD through the PayPal link provided on that same page. I promise you I am not profiting from this, in fact I lose a bit on each sale, but I wish to provide this opportunity to all of you in hopes that you will appreciate the product as much as I do!

3. Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler Tweeted this the other day:

@CarlDaikeler: Can't tell you why yet but if you can clear your calendar for the day or a couple hours on Mon Aug 5th, it's gonna be exciting and worth it!

I will be following this and will of course keep you all updated with any news that I hear of. It sounds interesting, and I am a sucker for teasers like this! :P

4. You will notice on of my blogs (link below) is about Dan's health and fitness journey. I am always on the look out for success stories, so if you would like to be featured on my blog, make sure you e-mail me and we can discuss having you featured!

Hey Everybody

I trust you are all doing well and progressing towards your health/fitness goals. A bit of a crappy week for me as I have been dealing with a few aches/pains that I am trying to get rid of before I dive head-first into my World's Toughest Mudder training. I am taking some time off from my strength training, but I am still pressing play with Focus T25. I really am enjoying the program, as it is keeping me sane, allowing me to workout, yet it is mostly lower-body focused (at least for now) so that I can allow my right elbow to heal.

Just a head's up for those of you interested, I am still mulling over what my plans are going to be, but I am quite certain that I am going to shorten the Alpha Phase by 1 week and jump into the Beta Phase starting Monday, so keep an eye out for my video blogs as I start the Beta Phase!

This week's topics of interest:

1. I have had some tremendous interest for my Shakeology 10-Packs. These offer a terrific opportunity to try Shakeology (and more than one flavour if you're interested) for a longer duration than just 1 sample. I do ask that you pay $50 for these 10-packs, but I promise you that I am not profiting from these at all, just trying to re-coup my costs. The goal here is to allow all of you a chance to get a better feel for the product!

2. For those of you who haven't joined, make sure to check out our Facebook accountability/Challenge group Team Fitness for Life. This group is filled with amazing inspiring people who help motivate and encourage each other to stay active. Research has shown that most people thrive in a "group setting", and although we all choose to workout at home (on our own), this group offers a great chance for that camaraderie.

3. Just a quick reminder that the Focus T25 Challenge Pack is still on sale for $180 until the end of July. This is a savings of over $90! Keep in mind that you can cancel your Shakeology or change flavours at ANY time, penalty-free.

4. I received some of the photos from my Body Beast testimonial photo shoot I had while I was in Vegas. To see them, head on over to my Facebook Page.

My Fitness Journey (so far)...

I have been blogging and vlogging for a few years now, with many of you following me throughout, but I have also had a lot of you just recently stumble upon either my website, Facebook page, or Youtube Channel. A lot of people don't realize the fitness journey that I have been taking (thus far), so I figured I would give a refresher course as to where I am coming from, where I currently stand, and where I am currently heading!

I guess you could say that I have not been your traditional "Beachbody transformation success story", as I have never been one to need to lose a lot of weight. Growing up, I was always an active kid. Consistently, every summer I would play rep (competitive) soccer, and then in the winter I would play rep  (competitive) hockey. My diet wasn't the greatest growing up, but I was a naturally skinny kid (nicknamed "skin and bones" by my family) and was active all the time, so if anything, I struggled to keep my weight up.

Holidays January 2006

Holidays January 2006

My love and passion for soccer ended up taking me College, as I earned a scholarship to play NAIA Division 2 soccer. At College, I graduate in 3 years (2003-2006), earning my B.Sc. in Biochemistry: Pre-Medical. Playing Varsity soccer was not entirely successful, as I had to sit out my 2nd season with a debilitating back injury that ended up requiring surgery (December 2004). I worked hard to re-hab in the off-season, and returned for my 3rd, and final season, but soon after graduation, I started developing some pretty bad habits.

I never really worried about working out when I was younger, as playing sports naturally kept me active. Once I graduated and settled into a full-time job, my exercising definitely took a back seat, not to mention some bad eating and drinking habits. I ended up out of shape and not happy with my lifestyle.

P90XLogo_hi_res.jpg

My poor lifestyle choices even lead to some pretty bad bouts of depression and anxiety! That moment clicked, when I realized that I could not keep continuing on my current path, so one morning, like so many others, I saw the infomercial for P90X!

September 2009

September 2009

When I first started P90X, I was totally and completely baffled by how "out of shape" I actually was. I always assumed that I was in shape, and a decent athlete, so I really didn't think that a home workout program would be this challenging! I worked hard at the program and made it through a few rounds, but my diet was certainly lacking.  Although I was in pretty decent shape, and was playing in a men's league competitive soccer, I didn't look the way I wanted to, and knew that there was something else that I needed to change besides just working out. I needed to start focusing on my diet, as that was just as much of a contributing factor, of not more so than exercise alone!

September 2010

September 2010

The P90X workouts started getting easier, and I was definitely improving. I went from being able to barely eek out 5 chin-ups in one set to cranking out 8+ every set during a workout. I was feeling good about myself, but still not looking the greatest.

I was starting to realize the importance of fuelling m body though. I started to make the connection between nutrition to perform, look, and feel better rather than to just fill my gut. In the mean time, I was growing my Beachbody workout library. By the end of 2010, I was starting to collect Tony Horton's One on One Series, as well as use the P90X+ series. I also competed my first ever half marathon in October 2010!

In 2011 I did Shaun T's Insanity series followed by Insanity: The Asylum (see my final results video here).

Throughout 2011, I dabbled with various hybrids, also training for Warrior Dash (July 2011), and then my 2nd half marathon in October 2011.

In December 2011, after my son Evan was born, I stumbled upon the promotional video for the World's Toughest Mudder from just a few weeks prior. I immediately knew that this was what I wanted to do next year!

February 2012 (post-P90X2)

February 2012 (post-P90X2)

A week after my son was born, my copy of P90X2 arrived, and I jumped into that program right away. P90X2 quickly became one of my favourite programs from Beachbody, due to the immense amount of thought and science that they put into it. I knew that this (P90X2) would be a great tool for me to use in my training goals to reach the World's Toughest Mudder in 2012.

August 2012, just a few days prior to Tough Mudder Toronto

August 2012, just a few days prior to Tough Mudder Toronto

I signed up for Tough Mudder Toronto, to compete in August 2012, and immediately began training it. I also competed in my 2nd Warrior Dash in July 2012, as a sort of lead-up to Tough Mudder. In the back of my mind, I knew I wanted to qualify for the World's Toughest Mudder by finishing in the top 5% of the participants, so I trained hard throughout 2012 in order to qualify. 

My goal was achieved when I received word from Tough Mudder Headquarters that I did in fact qualify for the World's Toughest Mudder!

There was no time to rest after I returned from Tough Mudder Toronto, as I almost immediately jumped into training to 'bridge' my fitness between Tough Mudder Toronto to the World's Toughest Mudder which was taking place in November. 

December 2012, following World's Toughest Mudder

December 2012, following World's Toughest Mudder

My training went well, although there was a lot of endurance training, and I lost more weight than what I had anticipated. I went on to compete at the World's Toughest Mudder 2012 and came home ready for my new goals.

November was also the month that I began taking Shakeology.  I will be honest, I was pretty skeptical of Shakeology before I started it. I have always been a fan of Beachbody and their products, but I got so sick and tired of so many different Coaches literally trying to pour the stuff down my throat!

When I became a Beachbody Coach myself on October 1st 2012, I didn't even sign up for Shakeology at that time. But after a month, I realized that there was no point bad-mouthing the product unless I gave it a good, honest, 30-day sample. I haven't turned back since! 

Since I had lost quite a bit of weight during my WTM training, as well as at the event itself, the timing to start Beachbody's program Body Beast, along with using Shakeology as a nutritional aide, could not have been better! 

Thinking back to when I was younger, I have always been naturally skinny, so I was really looking forward to a program like Body Beast to see what kind of results (if any) I could get with it. I became a huge fan of the program right away, and, well...I think the results will do all of the talking!

After I completed Body Beast, I have played around with a few different modifications to the program, and have recently started my own strength training program, combined with Shaun T's latest program Focus T25!

I go back and look at how far I have come over these past few years. Not only have I changed my physical appearance a few times, but I have also changed mentally. I now see exercise as not only a way to 'treat' myself, but to also challenge myself and to compete! I enjoy feeling good, looking good, and challenging myself in new ways possible. I hope that I encourage and inspire all of you to go out and do the same!

Hey Everybody

Welcome to July! Wow, the year is already half over, time is flying by. I know I sound like a broken record, but most people don't realize that time keeps on passing you by whether you choose to improve yourself or not! Don't have enough time to exercise? Well, Beachbody has you covered now...

This week's topics:

1. Wow, the buzz surrounding Focus T25 is just unbelievable! The interest shown by not only many on my team, but also customers and Coaches throughout Beachbody Nation is incredible! My wife and I have been working our way through the program as well, and now that I am a week and a half in, I can honestly say that I believe Beachbody has created such a perfectly versatile program here!

For those of you who are already fit from Insanity or Asylum, this can be used as a great "maintenance" routine. For those with other goals (including myself) it works well as an add-on. I have been doing more of a traditional strength program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, with Focus T25 right alongside of it.

For those interested, you can find the Focus T25 Base kit and add-on Gamma Phase here.

Remember that the program is also paired with Shakeology, giving the perfect combination of exercise and nutrition in a Challenge Pack. From now until the end of July, the Challenge Pack is also on sale for $180 (over $70 savings).

2. For those interested in Shakeology, I have a few vanilla samples left if you wish to try, I will send you a sample for free. I also have a delivery of chocolate samples showing up later this week. I have sent out vanilla samples to many of you, for those of you waiting on a chocolate sample, I will let you know when I am sending them out. If you wish to try Shakeology, e-mail me back with your mailing address and flavour of choice. Keep in mind that I now also offer Shakeology 10-Packs which offer an opportunity to try a couple flavours, and get a better feel for the shakes before ordering an entire month's supply.

3. For those interested, I have created a photo album on my Facebook page showing all of the great people I have met through my short time as a Beachbody Coach!

4. Finally, I want to leave you with a message Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler posted on his Facebook on Tuesday:

Why don't Team Beachbody Coaches need to have any fear about inviting people to buy from or join or network?
2 reasons: 

(1) The products work. They live up to, and usually surpass the expectations for body transformation that customers have. No reason to fear rejection when you are representing to total package that really gets results. 

(2) Our mission is to "help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy fulfilling lives". While greed drives many MLM's, our drive is to help people. When you are not trying to "close a sale" but instead are trying to truly help someone improve their life, you have nothing to fear. And guess what? That's good business.

Sure, some people you talk to may not be ready to participate. That's okay. But as a coach, you should never feel anything but total pride in your efforts to help more people. Every day - HELP MORE PEOPLE!

And from the looks of results in the last week, you are definitely feeling the crazy momentum that happens when your intent lines up with that message! Keep it going!

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my blogs and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!

2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, tylerrobbinsfitness.com. It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions, writing my blogs, filming my videos, and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Everyone have a fantastic week!

Hey Everybody

WOW, what a week! This time last week, I was getting ready to head to the airport to fly to Vegas for Coach Summit. If you weren't following along, head on over to tylerrobbinsfitness.com and check out my Instagram feed there. I had such an awesome time, meeting some of the most amazing individuals, not only Beachbody 'celebs', but some other Coaches who I have only connected with online.

Here are some of the topics I am covering this week (lots to cover, I will try and make it quick):

1. Focus T25 is here! I am currently making my way through the program (I just finished Day 3), and I have to admit that it has been exceeding my expectations so far! Think of this program as a condensed (but still intense) version of both Insanity and Asylum combined! Beachbody is offering free shipping until the end of July!

2. Vanilla Shakeology is here! So many people have been requesting this. To be honest, there are far more people excited about this than I thought there would be! The announcement at Coach Summit came with a tremendous applause. I have samples, so if you would like to try it out, let me know! If you order before July 7th, there is free shipping on it as well!

3. Focus T25 is also available in a Challenge Pack! Not only is it available in a Challenge Pack, but it is on sale from now, until the end of July for just $180! Considering the program itself is $120, you are saving over $70 if you were to purchase both Focus T25 and Shakeology separately. Not only THAT, but Beachbody still has their promotion available where you can upgrade to Coach status for free ($40 value) with the purchase of any Challenge Pack!

4. With all of the hype surrounding Summit, I would like to remind you that the Les Mills Combat Challenge Pack is still on sale for the remainder of the month of June for just $140. Again, considering Shakeology retails for $130, you are saving a ton of money!

5. Many of you still haven't found your way over to our accountability group "Team Fitness for Life!" If you have a Facebook account, make your way over there and ask to join the group. There is a great group of like-minded individuals pushing play and staying accountable, motivating and helping each other out. It is a great way to stick with your diet and exercise plan.

6. The other day I announced my "Shakeology 10-Packs." For a faction of the cost of a full bag of Shakeology, I will send you 10 individual Shakeology samples so that you can try Shakeology out before you give a full month's bag a shot. Individual samples really are intended to see if you like the taste, whereas 10 samples will allow you to start to feel the benefits of Shakeology and what it can do for your body!

7. If you haven't seen this video yet, I would highly recommend you watch it...

8. I have one spot remaining on my Team Beachbody Cup team. If you are looking to become a Coach, this would be a fantastic opportunity to hit the ground running!
