Multi-Program Challenge Group Guide


Get content you can customize and share with your Multi-Program Challenge Groups.

        Getting Started

  1. Create a Challenge Group in the My Challenge Tracker Coach Portal, and invite your participants to download the My Challenge Tracker App. Alternatively, you can set up a private Facebook® group.
  2. Post Week 0 topics to your group's feed.

        Challenge Group Best Practices

  • Use My Challenge Tracker. My Challenge Tracker was designed to help you run your Challenge Groups and get your customers the best results possible. Using the app, your participants can track their workouts, Shakeology, weight, measurements and progress photos, while interacting with one another in a closed forum. Simultaneously, with the Coach Portal, you can gain insights into your participants’ daily activities to help keep everyone accountable.
  • Kick off with a group meeting and set expectations. Whether in person, via Zoom or over the phone, holding an initial group meeting is a great way to set clear expectations that can define a rewarding experience for your participants. It also creates a team culture where participants can feel a sense of belonging and gain encouragement from others. Walk them through the My Challenge Tracker app, showing them how to track their activity and engage within the group. Tell them what they need to do to be successful (i.e., check in daily, drink Shakeology, set realistic short-term and long-term goals, etc.). Share how you and others in the group will support them along the way.
  • Share the Team Beachbody meal prep guides. These guides are tailored to different calorie needs and make meal prep simple, providing grocery lists and step-by-step instructions for planning breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks — one week at a time.
  • Lead by example with our #1 Vital Behavior, be proof the products work. Track your activity and share your experiences daily, so your participants can replicate actions that will help them succeed.
  • Connect and check in with participants constantly. Hold a weekly zoom call for your challengers to ask questions and share successes and challenges to increase group engagement and morale. Additionally, if you notice someone hasn’t been logging their activity, reach out to them individually to make sure everything is okay and encourage them to get back on track. They’ll be more likely to stick with the challenge if they know someone is holding them accountable.
  • Surprise your participants; throw down a challenge. Whether it’s a day where everyone completes 10 push-ups, shares their favorite meal photo and recipe, or does the most squats in a minute, small prizes or contests can help keep your participants engaged and motivated.
  • Recognize, Recognize, Recognize! Another Coach vital behavior, it’s key to recognize the positive changes and healthier lifestyle choices people make, no matter how small. Recognition keeps challengers engaged and motivated. Consider designating a day of the week to highlight someone’s success, or, better yet, do it daily.
  • Encourage participants to submit their results to the Beachbody Challenge contest. Everyone loves free stuff. Make sure your participants enter the contest once they complete their challenge to get rewarded with a free completion prize, and a chance to win some cash.
  • Continue with the momentum even after your Challenge Group ends. Check out these tips for effectively wrapping up your Challenge Groups and getting your participants to join your next challenge – or transition to become a Coach.

Day 2
Getting Started / Beachbody On Demand

If you haven't received your program and are wondering what the workouts look like OR what you're going to eat for the next few weeks, check out Beachbody On Demand. Here you can stream all your workouts and access your program materials, including the nutrition plan and workout calendar—all in one place.

Excuses like missing a workout, not following the nutrition guide, etc. no longer apply because you can most always access the program as you go without having to drag along a box of DVDs and printed material. Even if you don't have an internet connection, you can download workouts and content to your phone with the iPhone app and reference them at any time.

Day 3
Getting Started / Nutrition

What you eat accounts for 80% of your results, so it's key to stick with your program's meal guide.

Take a look at it and then spend some time today throwing out all the unhealthy food and beverages from your refrigerator and pantry. The truth is, if the "treat" isn't around when your cravings hit, you CAN'T eat it. And chances are, your urges will pass long before you drive all the way to the store.

What foods will you throw away today?

image
Day 4
Getting Started / Nutrition

Hopefully you already tossed all the junk from your home. Now for the fun part—shopping for healthy food! Here's a shopping tip I give all my new challengers: stock your cart with at least 30% veggies! That way you'll have enough for generous veggie portions at every meal.

image
Day 5
Shakeology

Part of what makes Shakeology special is the globally harvested ingredients that go into each bag. Shakeology’s co-creator, Darin Olien, actually goes all around the world finding the best sources for the superfood ingredients in Shakeology, like maca and sacha inchi.

Check out this video from his Peruvian adventure to get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition: https://youtu.be/YwNqCHtKmP4

Beachbody Performance

I can tell you from firsthand experience that Beachbody Performance Energize and Recover help me get the most out of my workouts. But you probably have some questions about what makes these supplements different from everything else on the market. Well, one of the things that sets them apart is that they were designed by Harvard-trained scientists using cutting-edge ingredients, and are backed by exercise physiology and performance nutrition research.

If you want to learn more about the science behind these supplements, watch these videos:

Day 6
Getting Started / Motivation

What are your goals for this challenge?

Setting goals is crucial to achieving results, and can provide you with focus, motivation, and a means of measuring your progress.

If you haven't set them already, you can use these tips below to get started.

image
Day 7
Getting Started

Tomorrow's the big day—the first official start of your challenge! If you haven't already, make sure you take your "before" photos, weight, and measurements. That way you'll be able to see how much progress you're making as you complete the program. I know it can be hard to document things about yourself that you want to change, but trust me…do it now and you'll be so thankful later when you see just how far you've come!

Not to mention, tracking your "before" and "after" info is the only way you can enter the Beachbody Challenge Contest to get a free gift and potentially win some cash.

image

Week 1


Day 1
Getting Started / Motivation

Make today awesome—it's the first day of your challenge! Share how your first workout went. Don't worry if the workouts seem difficult—it usually takes a few run-throughs to get used to the moves.

PS: Don't forget to enjoy your Shakeology or Beachbody Performance supplements today!

Day 2
Success Story

Talk about motivation! Breonna was disappointed with how she looked and was tired of not doing anything about it. By completing several Beachbody fitness programs, drinking Shakeology, and eating clean, she lost 67 POUNDS and gained the confidence to pursue a modeling career!*

"I was extremely proud when I arrived at a photo shoot and the photographer asked me if I had a trainer! I said, 'No, I just use the diet plans that come with Beachbody programs and I stick to my workouts!'"

*Breonna B. is an independent Beachbody Coach. Results achieved in 11 months using a combination of Shakeology, Slim in 6, Brazil Butt Lift, and P90X. Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition.

image
Success Story

After tearing her ACL playing competitive volleyball and losing her mother to terminal cancer, Emily became depressed and stopped caring for herself. However, once she had her second child, she decided something needed to change and turned to Beachbody fitness programs and Beachbody Performance to help her get fit for her daughters. Now she's down 67 POUNDS!*

"I can't believe the difference Beachbody has made. I'm no longer the mom that parks her kids in front of the TV all day. We're always on-the-go and I can play with them without getting tired!"

*Emily E. is an independent Beachbody Coach. Results achieved in 10 months using a combination of Shakeology, Beachbody Performance, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix EXTREME, and INSANITY MAX:30. Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition.

image
Day 3
Fitness / Nutrition

I LOVE that you all are committed to crushing it every day! Here are 3 tips to help you make the most of your hard work:

  1. Get plenty of sleep—at least 7 to 8 hours. Catching those z's is super-important to help your body recover and build muscle.
  2. Make sure you're consuming Shakeology or Beachbody Performance supplements.
  3. Drink plenty of fluid! It's crucial to your performance during a workout. Staying hydrated ensures you maintain your body's fluid balance. Why's that important? Just a little loss of fluid through sweat can significantly impair your power and performance.

image
Day 4
Beachbody On Demand

I've said it before, with Beachbody On Demand you can take your program on-the-go, so you have no excuses. But what does that really mean for you? Let's break down a few scenarios:

  1. You're on a business trip and realize your hotel room doesn't have a DVD player. Do you miss a workout? No! You can stream it right from your laptop in your hotel room.
  2. While on the way with the kids to grandma and grandpa's for the weekend, you realize you left your nutrition guide at home. Do you turn around and go back for it? Or worse yet, forgo your nutrition for a few days and binge on everything in sight? Heck, no! You know you can access your nutrition guide from your tablet.
  3. One weekend you stay at a campsite where there's no internet access. Do you let your fitness take a backseat for the next few days? NO. You already downloaded your workouts to your phone with the iPhone app, so you can access them at any time.

I think I've made my point. And Beachbody On Demand isn't just convenient for traveling. It's useful every day! For instance, while waiting to pick up my son from school, I glance at my workout calendar from my phone to see what I have scheduled for the day. That way, when I get home I'm mentally prepped for my workout.

Have you streamed Beachbody On Demand outside your home? Please share!

image
Day 5
Shakeology

Real talk: Did you know Shakeology can help *ahem* move things along? That's because it is formulated with prebiotics, probiotics, fiber and digestive enzymes that help support nutrient absorption and regularity.*

*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

image
Beachbody Performance

Get that "tingly" feeling after taking Energize? Don't worry—it's totally normal. That's the beta-alanine getting to work—a signal it’s appeared and elevated in your blood circulation. The tingling feeling will generally subside within the hour as beta-alanine meets its metabolic fate towards increasing muscle carnosine levels—your muscle’s potent acid buffering agent.

image
Day 6
Fitness

Anyone feeling sore or hungry? If so, that's GOOD! It means your program is working. Because you're pushing your body in new ways, you're breaking down the muscle so it can rebuild stronger.

This also helps explain why you're hungry, even if you've been following your nutrition plan to the T. When your body is in breakdown mode, it starts craving more nutrients. It's all just part of the process to getting stronger and fitter!

image
Day 7
Check-In

Big props to everyone—Week 1 is in the books! Now that you have 7 days of your program under your belt, what's one thing you want to do better next week?

image

Week 2


Day 1
Motivation

Remember, every expert started their journey as a beginner. Don't be discouraged if things are tough right now—keep at it and you will see progress!

image
Day 2
Fitness

Did you know some people actually GAIN weight before they start losing it? If you notice the scale has been creeping up, several things could be happening:

  1. You're building muscle faster than you're dropping fat. This will also curb in a few weeks.
  2. You're not eating enough. Make sure you read your nutrition guide—it has all the information you need to make smart choices in the kitchen.
  3. Excess stress could be the culprit. Putting your body under too much stress by under-eating and performing a lot of high-intensity exercise that you're not used to could actually impede your results.

Don't give up! In a couple of weeks, these issues tend to resolve themselves. But if you're still having problems, I encourage you to post your questions and I'll do my best to get you answers.

image
Day 3
Success Story

Nina was an exhausted parent who wanted to transform her health and body to set a better example for her kids. She took the plunge with Beachbody fitness programs and Beachbody Performance supplements—and lost 35 pounds!*

"Now I have the energy to keep up with my kids, but my proudest achievement is that I'm a much better role model for them!"

*Nina O. is an independent Beachbody Coach. Results achieved in 1 year using a combination of Shakeology, Beachbody Performance, FOCUS T25, 21 Day Fix, PiYo, and 3-Day Refresh. Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition.

image
Day 4
Fitness

FORM TIP: If your program has weights, make sure you keep your hands in line with your forearms when lifting. Avoid bending your hands back at your wrists. This will help you prevent muscle strain and injury!

image
Day 5
Shakeology

You know what they say…it's easier to stick with it than to start over! I want you to focus on being consistent with your nutrition this week. And one of the easiest ways to do that is by drinking your Shakeology every day!

How do you stay on point with your nutrition? Do you keep Shakeology in the car? Do you prep your meals for the week? Share your tips for being consistent in the comments!

image
Beachbody Performance

When I'm really sore after a tough workout, it's harder for me to stick to my workout schedule—which makes it even harder to make any progress. Sound familiar? If you're finding it hard to stay consistent because you're feeling really beat, try drinking your Beachbody Performance Recover within 30 minutes of your workout. In addition to 20 grams of protein and a blend of BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids), it also includes pomegranate juice that can help reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) from intense workouts.* It's totally helped me stay consistent helping speed my muscle recovery…let us know how it works for you!*

*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

image
Day 6
Motivation

It's so much easier to reach your goals when you know others are on the same journey. You're almost done with Week 2, everyone! Tag someone from the group and give them some motivation for the day!

image
Day 7
Motivation

Who needs the scale? There are better ways to track your progress during your challenge—like how your clothes fit, if the moves feel easier, or through your measurements! For the next [insert number] days, I want you to focus on tracking your measurements WEEKLY. Not only will this help you see meaningful change (like inches lost or muscle gained), but it will help you figure out if you need to adjust your calorie intake.

image

Week 3


Day 1
Check-In

Congrats! You made it to Week 3. How are you feeling? If you ever have any questions, feel free to send them my way and together we will find a solution that works for you.

image
Day 2
Daily Sunshine / Nutrition

I don't know about you, but I find it easy to overeat at mealtime. What can I say, I just LOVE food! But to avoid feeling stuffed, I portion out my meal, eat it, and then wait 20–30 minutes for my brain to tell my body it's full. This trick usually works for me and helps keep my nutrition on track. Do you have any tips to avoid overeating?

Speaking of nutrition, are there any parents out there who can relate to this? Throughout our journey, you’ve been developing healthier habits, and I hope you’ve been sharing them with your family. Helping your kids develop healthier habits now will certainly help them in the long run. However, I know how difficult it can be to get kids to eat right. That’s why I love Daily Sunshine. With its full serving of fruits and veggies, 10 grams of protein, and healthy fats, it’s a healthy snack my kids actually love!

image
Day 3
Success Story

Melanie entered Beachbody's Year-End Resolution contest in 2015 and lost more than 20 pounds in just 2 months!*

"It blows my mind that so much can change with consistency, intentional nutrition, 30-minute workouts, and accountability from like-minded individuals! My co-workers, family members, and friends have noticed a significant improvement in my energy level, physique, and positive outlook on life!"

*Melanie F. is an independent Beachbody Coach. Results achieved in 2 months using a combination of Shakeology, 21 Day Fix, and INSANITY MAX:30. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition.

image
Day 4
Fitness

I'm so impressed with everyone's work ethic! Keep pushing—I promise you won't regret it later. If you're still finding it hard to get through the workouts, try these tips to conquer the next one:

  1. Mentally prepare.
  2. Find a workout buddy (even if it's your spouse or neighbor).
  3. Get into a routine and make it a priority.
  4. Remember why you started.
  5. Use the 3 P's: Positive images, Power words, and Present focus

Day 5
Shakeology

Replace your cup o' joe with a delicious Café Latte Shakeology recipe that'll give you your morning coffee flavor fix. 😉

Flaxseed Banana Café Latte Shakeology
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop Café Latte Shakeology
¼ large banana, cut into chunks
1 Tbsp. flaxseed
1 cup ice

Beachbody Performance

No matter what level of athlete you are, timing your pre-workout nutrition is important if you want to maximize the work you're about to do. If you need to eat before a workout, do so at least 2 hours before exercising to give your body time to digest. And be sure to take your Beachbody Performance Energize 30 minutes before sweating it out—that gives it plenty of time to kick in!

image
Day 6
Fitness

Here's one reason to catch more z's—to help you get results! Not only is it important to lock in those 8 hours to help your body recover from your workouts, but according to research, taking a protein supplement before bed coupled with a good night's rest can actually help with muscle growth when you’ve been exercising vigorously: https://tbbcoa.ch/1Vei4UU

image
Day 7
Motivation

Like I've said before, stress releases cortisol, which can make it harder to lose fat from your midsection. Unfortunately, the negative effects of stress don't stop there. Increased cortisol can effect recovery and encourage muscle breakdown—NOT COOL. That's why it's important to step back and take a deep breath every once in a while.

image

Week 4


Day 1
Beachbody On Demand / Fitness

We've entered Week 4! WHAT?!

Whatever program you're completing, I encourage you to follow it to a T. All of Beachbody's programs are proven, but you really need to follow the program's guidelines (i.e., workout schedule and eating guide) to get the best results. That's not to say you can't complement your program with some extra physical activity. There may be times when you feel energized and want to add another workout to your routine. On other days, you may just want to relax with some extra stretching and meditation exercises. It's for times like these I'm thrilled to be a Beachbody On Demand member. From yoga to cardio to strength and resistance-training, Beachbody On Demand gives you access to hundreds of workouts ready to stream when you need them.

image
Day 2
Nutrition

Forget that old food pyramid you grew up with. This is what your plate should look like!

image
Day 3
Shakeology

This story is straight-up inspiring. Because of her weight, Sherry felt like she wasn't focusing on what was important: making happy memories with her family. However, since completing several Beachbody fitness programs and supplementing her healthy eating program with Shakeology, she's lost 40 pounds and is loving life right now!

"I wake up with a passionate fire for life! I feel like I can accomplish anything that comes my way and can live happily no matter what size I am. I've completed a Tough Mudder race, a Color 5K, and I even became an INSANITY Instructor!"

image
Beachbody Performance

Carrie struggled with body issues her entire life and decided something needed to change. She turned to Beachbody fitness programs and Beachbody Performance to help her develop a healthy and sustainable routine. Now she loves working out—and has lost 90 pounds!

"I always thought of exercise as a way to lose weight, but now I see it as a vital behavior. It's a way of life and it's fun! There's a sense of accomplishment in finishing a Beachbody program."

image
Day 4
Fitness / Nutrition

Ever wonder what you should eat if you like to work out in the AM?

Your body can resynthesize muscle glycogen stores (an energy source) within a day with adequate carbohydrates from your diet. But if you need a little fuel in the morning, try eating a banana or small bowl of oatmeal. Those options will give you the energy you need to power through your morning sweat session without weighing you down.

image
Day 5
Shakeology

Any birthdays out there? Celebrate with this sweet and healthy treat.

Red Velvet Birthday Cake Shakeology
⅔ cup water
⅓ cup unsweetened beet juice
1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology
¼ cup reduced-fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp. raw honey

Calories: 213

image
Beachbody Performance

Ever wondered why Beachbody Performance Recover contains not one, but three different kinds of proteins? Your body digests the whey, pea, and casein proteins found in your Recover drink at different rates to provide a rapid and sustained supply of nutrients that increase post-workout muscle protein synthesis (the process required to improve muscle rebuilding and adaptation alongside your training program).*

Have you noticed the difference since using Recover? Share your experience with the group!

Day 6
Fitness

Remember, the road to getting healthy and fit is a journey. It won't always be easy. There will come a day when you lack the motivation to hit the play button. If that feeling persists, you might be experiencing burnout.

Don't worry—it doesn't have to last forever. Check out these helpful tips to fight burnout and help you get back on track: https://tbbcoa.ch/27Ju1qz

image
Day 7
Check-In

Congrats on completing your first MONTH of your challenge! You're nearly a third of the way there!

I recommend taking your weight, measurements, and Month 1 photos today. That way you can see how far you've come over the last few weeks. If you want, you can also share your progress with the group!

image

Week 5


Day 1
Check-In / Motivation

Revisit the goals you set prior to starting this challenge. Are you on track to accomplishing them? If not, focus on what you can do differently to nail them this month. Try writing them down and putting them on your fridge or desk to keep them visible, so they'll be less likely to fall off your radar!

image
Day 2
Nutrition

Have you tried using mason jars for meal prep? I love them to store my salads for the week because they keep the ingredients fresh if you layer them properly. And when you're ready to eat, all you have to do is shake 'em up!

Here are a few tips for creating the perfect mason jar salad:

  1. Pour dressing in the bottom. That way your veggies stay crunchy and fresh.
  2. Layer heartier ingredients like carrots or beans after the dressing.
  3. Pack your greens on top.
image
Day 3
Nutrition

I absolutely LOVE cereal and I have a feeling some of you do too. Unfortunately, some cereals—even "healthy" ones—contain a ton of hidden sugars. So make sure you read the labels and choose ones with low-sugar content (5 grams or less), plenty of whole grains, and few to no extra preservatives. And if you really need to add a sweet kick to your morning bowl, just add some fruit!

image
Day 4
Motivation

Don't feel like hitting the play button today? Instead of focusing on losing weight or getting "ripped," try focusing on how a good workout will increase your quality of life. The work you put in today can improve your mood and help you become stronger and more confident. And that might be just the push you need to do something outside your comfort zone!

image
Day 5
Shakeology

Today during my morning commute, I tuned in to the "Inside Shakeology" podcast series on iTunes. I totally recommend it if you want the inside scoop on this superfood supplement shake! Check out the first podcast, "Discover the Shakeology Difference," where creator Darin Olien explains why Shakeology is more than just your run-of-the-mill protein shake.

Day 6
Motivation

We all unwind in different ways (confession: my favorite way is with/by [insert guilty pleasure], but have you ever tried meditation? Taking a few minutes out of your day to relax and reflect on your thoughts can do wonders for your mind, body, and stress levels. Here are a few things to keep in mind when learning how to meditate:

  1. Maintain a straight spine while sitting cross-legged in a chair or on the floor.
  2. Focus on your breathing—in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  3. Focus on something that makes you happy!

And don't worry if you get distracted—focus is like a muscle and meditation will help strengthen it!

image
Day 7
Motivation

I know it's tempting, but try not to compare your progress to anyone else's. Everyone is unique with different strengths and weaknesses. Remember that genetics can also be a factor. That doesn't mean you won't get results—you just have to trust your program and stick with it.

image

Week 6


Day 1
Check-In

Can you believe we've entered the 6th week in our challenge? Is anyone seeing any great results? Please share—we'd love to see them!

image
Day 2
Daily Sunshine / Nutrition

Have you heard the saying, "You are what you eat?" Well, it's true. Think of your body as a machine and the foods you put into it as fuel. If you feed your machine high-quality foods, it will run smoothly and efficiently. Feed it junk, and your machine will be sluggish!

This applies to kids too, which is why I’m thrilled to give my family Daily Sunshine. With its balanced 3-in-1 formula that includes a full serving of fruits and veggies, 10 grams of protein, and healthy fats—it’s a great alternative to some of the other snacks out there. But the best part? It’s DELICIOUS so my kids actually ask for it and if I’m being honest, I’ve been known to sneak some myself when I’m craving something sweet.

You'll have access to videos, delicious recipes, and grocery lists—everything you need to reach your nutrition goals without feeling deprived.

Shakeology

It's been almost two months since you whipped out the blender and started sipping Shakeology. By now, you should be experiencing more positive changes.

How has Shakeology helped improve your health and fitness?

Beachbody Performance

Who knew such a small fruit could make waves in the fitness community? Pomegranate extract (like the kind found in your Beachbody Performance Recover) has been gaining lots of attention lately from researchers for its effects on helping reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness and speeding muscle strength recovery, especially after intense workouts!*

Day 5
Nutrition

We're nearly halfway there! Amazing, right? Think for a moment about when you started and if you want, share some of the lifestyle changes you've made since then. Were there some foods/beverages you gave up? Is following the program as hard as you thought? Are there some delicious foods you're eating that you never thought you would?

Day 6
Shakeology

Day 7
Nutrition

We all have those moments where we fall off the healthy-eating wagon and just, well, pig out. But one thing that's definitely helped me stay on track is meal prepping! I choose [insert day of the week] and I make a big batch of grilled veggies and roasted chicken breasts [or insert the foods you prep]. That way it's always on hand in case I don't have time to cook during the week!

What about you guys? What's your favorite food to make in bulk?

Quick tip: Steaming veggies is much healthier than boiling them. When you boil veggies, many of their nutrients leach into the water. And the longer they're boiled, the less nutritious they can become.

What are your favorite steamed veggies?

Day 3
Nutrition

Who says healthy has to be boring? There are plenty of ways to spice up veggies, proteins, and even fruit to keep things fun and flavorful. Here are a few of my super-easy, go-to recipes:

  1. Chopped carrots, cucumbers, and red bell peppers tossed in rice wine vinegar and sesame seeds.
  2. Canned tuna mixed with celery, olive oil, Dijon mustard, tarragon, and hot sauce.
  3. Bananas, papaya, and pineapple with fresh-squeezed lime juice and lime zest, topped with shredded coconut.

What are your favorite ways to flavor your foods?

Day 4
Fitness

Find push-ups challenging? I do, but I know they are one of the best exercises to sculpt my shoulders, arms, chest, and back. However, to ensure you maximize your results with push-ups—and to avoid injury—it's key to have the proper form. Here are a few tips to nail the perfect push-up:

  1. Make sure your hands are slightly wider than shoulder width.
  2. Maintain a tight core.
  3. Keep your back flat and do not let your back or hips sag!

I have a confession…sometimes my only motivation for working out is knowing that a chocolaty, creamy Beachbody Performance Recover shake is waiting for me at the finish line! I mean, yeah, it boosts recovery and helps to reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness, but it also tastes SO good.* Anyone else as addicted to Recover as me?

Success Story

Working from home was a bummer for Amanda. She felt isolated and turned to food for comfort. However, once she combined Beachbody fitness programs with Beachbody Performance supplements, she became fitter and healthier than she had ever been in her entire life!

"Now that I know what I can achieve, my goals are constantly changing. I don't put limits on what I can do. My family is blown away by my results—they want to hop on the bandwagon with me!"

Day 4
Fitness

Hey, no one's perfect. Chances are your workout schedule won't be either. If you miss a day (or two), don't sweat it. Just jump back in when you can. Life gets in the way sometimes—and that's totally okay!

Day 5
Shakeology

Confession: I have trouble getting all my veggies in during the day. So recently, I gave the Power Greens Shakeology Boost a shot. It has a full serving of green veggies in just one scoop—but you would never know if you tasted it! It blends really well into my shakes, so I get all the benefits without that "green" taste.

There are other Boosts too—one to help digestion and one to help your energy and focus. Message me for more info or if you have any questions.

Beachbody Performance

I used to pound popular sports drinks I found at my local grocery store when I first started working out. BAD IDEA. They were so full of sugar that I ended up feeling bloated right in the middle of a workout. That's why I'm glad Beachbody created Beachbody Performance Hydrate. It has no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or colors, and it's better than water at keeping me hydrated during longer workouts.* Want to try some? Message me.

Daily Sunshine / Nutrition

Anyone else a big late-night snacker? I found this article the other day—it has great advice for staving off those PM cravings! https://tbbcoa.ch/1XoinfZ

And when you or your kids are craving something sweet—whether AM or PM—I highly recommend giving Daily Sunshine a try. In case you needed more proof, here’s a perfect example of how Daily Sunshine stacks up to a leading kids snack. Just look at the protein and carb differences. And since Daily Sunshine is so simple to make (literally, all you need to do is mix it with 8 oz. of water), you can take it on the go, making it just as convenient as one of these bars. Have you compared Daily Sunshine to other snacks? I’d love to see what you found.

Did you know that Shakeology actually SAVES you money? At just over $4 a day, you can have a cool, tall glass of the good stuff for less than a latte.

Have you noticed yourself spending less money on food these last 2 months?

Beachbody Performance

A lot of supplements out there contain tons of artificial crap or "fillers." That's why I'm really happy that Beachbody focused on using healthier ingredients for their line of Beachbody Performance supplements. With ingredients like beta-alanine, cherry extract, and green tea, I can take my workouts to the next level without having to worry about sketchy ingredients.

If you've done other Beachbody workouts before, how do your results compare this time around using Beachbody Performance?

Eating clean and hitting your workouts these last few weeks are important to seeing your best results. The last thing you want is to be so sore from exercise that you skip a day or two of working out. If you're feeling super-tight, especially in your legs, I recommend foam-rolling. Here a few tips to keep in mind when breaking out the roller:

  1. Don't try to foam-roll EVERY muscle. Look for places in your body that are restricting movement.
  2. Roll slowly—it's not about speed.
  3. When you find "hot spots," stay on them.

Day 7
Motivation / Nutrition

Setting goals and committing to them 100% is key if you want to improve your health and fitness. But we all have moments of weakness—like going overboard with food at a family get-together.

One of the things that helps me is preparing for "what-if" situations. Before my week begins, I'll ask myself if there are any challenges that might interfere with my daily goals. For example, if I know I'm going out for a friend's birthday, I'll make sure I prioritize my workout and eat really clean in the days leading up to that. That way, if I indulge a little, it won't sabotage my results.

How do you prepare for the unexpected?

A lot of you have been asking this lately: is it possible to eat too much fruit?

As always, moderation is key no matter what you eat. But if you need some science to reassure you that an extra apple a day won't derail your progress, one study found that you would "have to eat vast quantities of fruits every day in order to ingest metabolically adverse amounts of dietary fructose."
