Hey Team

Welcome to November! With the holiday season right around the corner, you basically have two choices right now. First, and the option I highly recommend AGAINST, is to "write off" the rest of the year, eat like a pig, and wait until the gyms fill up for the first week or two in January to finally get off your ass and get moving.

OR, you could put a plan into motion NOW to get fit, change your diet, and be well into your new lifestyle before 2014 even starts! Wouldn't it be great to see family over the holidays and everyone notice how much you've changed? I don't just mean losing weight, by the way. Sure, that is a nice side effect of healthy eating/exercise for some of you. Instead, think of how great you will feel! People walk differently, their postures improve, and they just overall feel much better in their own skin when they eat well and stay active. That is called confidence. Makes you feel like a million bucks. Luckily, we have solutions for everybody!

Lots to cover this week. Sorry if some of this is repetitive to some of you, but we have lots of new team members this week, so I want to make sure everyone is caught up with everything going on right now!

1. If you haven't already, make sure to check out our Facebook accountability group Team Fitness for Life. We have an amazing group of individuals keeping each other motivated/inspired to keep active and eating well.

2. Helpouts by Google launched yesterday (November 5th). I have already helped a man from Lebanon and another from California with some health and fitness questions. This is a remarkable opportunity for me, and I am really excited to see what sort of opportunities await!

3. My first ever 60-Day Coach training program got underway this past Monday. The group is already doing really well and showing great initiative. I just know that the 60 days' worth of training will benefit them all, not just with their businesses, but in other aspects in life too. I am already looking ahead to start the next group on Monday December 2nd. If you have ever thought about Beachbody Coaching and are possibly interested in signing up, please let me know so we can discuss. I am open to having video chats with anyone interested, so that you can have a one on one, face to face with me and get my honest opinion about the opportunity!

4. Don't forget, P90X3 launches on December 10th! If you order by December 15th, then you are guaranteed to have it by Christmas. Even better than that, you can join my P90X3 Challenge Group and progress through the program with a group of us. Even though we all like to workout in the privacy of our own homes, research has shown that a lot of people thrive in a group workout setting. Being a part of our Challenge Group on Facebook, gives you that group mentality, which can be incredibly encouraging and motivating!

5. I have sent quite a few free Shakeology samples out lately. If you are one of those people and would like to order, but are unsure of what flavour would be best for you, remember that there are more Shakeology options available, including a "Shakeology Taste Sampler." (Limit one per customer) You get 4 Shakeology samples - 2 chocolate, 1 green berry, 1 vanilla. It is a great way to pick your favourite before ordering a full 30-day supply.

6. On Mondays to Fridays, at 8pm, I am posting links on my Facebook page to some of my favourite and most popular blogs from the archive. Here are the posts from the past week:

Enjoy the Journey (Because you can!)
 
Meal Timing
 
Tyler's Book Club
 
Go Fast and Then Go Home
 
Is 'Junk Food' really cheaper than 'Healthy Food'?
 
Genetics Count

7. Blogs from this past week:

Illegal Downloads
 
Tony Horton's One on One Road Warrior Modifications
 
"Friends don't let friends skip leg day!"

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 great week!

Hey Everybody

The air is getting colder and we are well on our way through October. The holiday season is right around the corner, and that also means a new year is fast approaching. Lots of exciting things happening as we count down the remaining days of 2013.

This week's topics of interest:

1. I have just given my website a bit of a facelift. Nothing too major, just a few cosmetic changes here and there to freshen up the appearance a bit. Let me know what you think!

2. I have been invited to be one of the founding members of a new service from Google called "Google Helpouts." For those of you who know me will realize that this holds a lot of potential for me, especially considering how much I have enjoyed helping so many of you online these past few years. I will release more details about this endeavour as they are made available to me, so stay tuned!

3. Check out my latest class for P90X University - The Science of P90X: Heart Rate Zones and Intensity

4. Surprise, surprise, exercise is the key to a long, happy life!

5. Don't forget about Beachbody's October Promotions: P90X and P90X2 Challenge Packs are both $180 this month (over $90 savings!).

6. Also don't forget that there are new Shakeology purchasing options available!

Hey Everyone

Welcome to October! A new month always brings exciting new opportunities, and with just a few months left in the year, it is also time to start planning ahead to the New Year. Lots of new, exciting, but also some disappointing news from me today.

First off, let me get the disappointing news out of the way first. I am withdrawing from the World's Toughest Mudder. For those of you who have been following me will know, I have a heart condition known as "Atrial Flutter." To make a long story short, I have been cleared for exercise, but certain types of training seem to be causing my symptoms to flare up, and I really don't think I am physically able, nor is it safe, to continue on with my training and competing at such a rigorous event. This is disappointing for me, but at the same time, health always comes first, and I am focusing on getting the required treatment so that I can make plans to compete again in the future.

For those interested, I am currently planning out my next training blocks. I plan on doing a Body Beast/One on One Hybrid that will focus on a bit of mass gaining, but also strength improvements. There will also be some performance goals there as well since I am now back playing hockey.

Now on to the exciting pieces of info from the past week:

1. Beachbody has announced their October promotions. During the month of October, you can get P90X or P90X2 Challenge Packs for just $180. That saves you over $90! Even if you already own X and/or X2, this is a great opportunity to save some money and pick up a copy of the program for a friend/family member, and you could keep the Shakeology for yourself.

2. Beachbody now offers 2 new purchasing options for Shakeology. First, you can get a taste sampler, where you will receive a single servings of the following flavours - 2 chocolate, 1 vanilla, 1 greenberry. Keep in mind that these are limited to 1 per taste sampler per customer. For those of you who have been asking for it, you can now order chocolate/vanilla combo packs so that you can keep some variety with your healthiest meal of the day!

3. New P90X3 details!

4. I am going to be running a P90X3 Challenge Group to kick off the New Year! P90X3 is available for order on December 10th. If you order before December 15th, Beachbody guarantees that you will get it by Christmas. Take a few days off for the holiday season, and then join an already-growing group of us to start the program sometime between December 29th and January 11th!

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

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

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!

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!

Beachbody Coach Summit Day 1

Well, I arrived in Las Vegas late Wednesday night. After landing, getting my luggage, heading to the hotel,  checking in, and getting organized, I wasn't in bed until after 1:30am. That means that I was awake for around 24 consecutive hours on Wednesday. I was then up early Thursday morning, so after just 5 hours of sleep, I was off and running. 

I first headed to find my way around this MASSIVE hotel (MGM Grand). I eventually found the convention centre and was able to register. From there, I walked around checking out the sights and everything Beachbody. I stood in line and waited to pick up a copy of Focus T25. I then headed off to find the Marquee Ballroom for the morning meeting with Coach Wayne and the rest of Team Ripped.

It was awesome to see Sagi Kalev at the training session, but what was even more amazing was finally meeting Coach Wayne in person. CW is a great guy, very genuine and down to earth, eager to help others!

I had to leave the Coach training early to head to my Body Beast photo shoot and interview. There, I was fitted for some clothing, had my makeup done, and did some pushups and tricep dips to pump up a bit to prepare for my photos. I went through a wide range of poses both clothed and topless, looking mean and smiling. I had lots of compliments from the staff at how well my photos turned out! 

After the photo shoot I headed to a different room to do my interview. That was a bit of a nerve-racking experience, as I was in front of big, bright lighting, answering questions the best I could while Beachbody staffers watched from behind the camera. I definitely find speaking in front of my camera at home, producing my own Youtube videos to be a much more pleasant experience, hehe.  After my interview, I changed, grabbed some lunch, then headed back to the last bit of Coach training. 

Once the training was done, I headed to "Core", which is essentially the tradeshow setup by Beachbody, where products are for sale. There, I was able to get my tshirt autographed by Tony Horton, I had a few minutes to speak with Steve Edwards, and also saw Shaun T's Q&A. It really was a pretty cool experience to those 3 all in such close proximity. 

Later in the afternoon was Beachbody's first General Session. During this time, we were given a breakdown on Focus T25 from Shaun T himself. This also included news that Focus T25 will also have a "upgrade" package called "Gamma Phase", not to mention the inclusion of T25 in a Challenge Pack starting THIS Monday June 24th. 

After that, and to the HUGE response from the crowd (I honestly didn't realize that this was as big of a request as it is) Vanilla Shakeology was revealed. Not only that, but Vanilla Shakeology will be available for purchase tonight at midnight (June 20th) and will be available in Challenge Packs starting Monday June 24th, starting with Focus T25! 

Friday looks to be just as busy of a day, with training and workshops throughout the day. The big things I will be looking forward to, however, will be the Tony Horton workout at 7:15am, and day 2 of the General Session at 9am. Stay tuned for even more news tomorrow!
