SHAUN T’S NEWEST PROGRAM COMING IN 2019

“Conquer your mind…so you can TRANSFORM your life.”

It has been 3 years since we’ve had an entirely new workout program from Shaun T. We got to spend a week with him in SHAUN WEEK in June of ’17 but it’s now time to TRANSFORM our bodies and minds in 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week, for 6 weeks!

It’s only TWENTY MINUTES per day.
And you only need ONE piece of equipment.

Transform :20 Program Breakdown:

  • Trainer: Shaun T
  • Intensity: Intermediate/Advanced
  • Program Length: 6x/week, 6 weeks
  • Workout Length: 20 minutes
  • Equipment Needed: Step (I’ll talk about this below)
  • Best For: Burning fat, toning, abs, legs, booty, upper body
  • Release Date: VIP Early Access January 14, 2019, BOD April 1

What is Transform: 20?

Transform :20 is Shaun T’s (creator if Insanity!) newest program and he’s doing things a little differently this time.

It’s the perfect solution for busy people with just a 20 minute commitment!!

Each day will be a NEW workout — never repeating the same workout twice – 36 in all!

It’s not all about the physical transformation.

Yeah. This program is going to work your body — abs, legs, arms, booty — but it’s also about transforming the mind. On day 7 (your rest day) there will be a new weekly video to help sharpen your focus, visualize your goals, and push yourself!

Transform :20 Questions Answered

What’s the nutrition plan for Transform :20?

You have the option of following two different meal plans for this program:

  1. The Transform :20 Meal Plan
  2. Or 2B Mindset

Just like many other Beachbody programs, the Transform :20 plan uses the Portion Fix container system. It gives you a simple formula to use to figure out which bracket you fall into and container counts for each day — simple!

What equipment is needed?

These workouts are 100% bodyweight — no weights. And there’s only ONE piece of equipment you’ll need, and it’s what Beachbody is calling “The Step.” Yeah, like the step used in step aerobics back in the day. But it’s 0% like that. I promise!

the-step (1)

What are the workouts like?

I’m not going to lie, as I’ve read the reviews, the workouts are challenging — but they have to be! Remember, you’re only in it for 20 minutes, and it’s going to push you to your limit for that that entire 20 minutes. It’ll be hard, but nothing you can’t do, and the results will be totally worth it.

There are 3 Phases to the program: Commit, Climb, and Conquer. As you progress through each phase, the workouts get harder and the moves become more intricate.

There are 5 weekday workouts: Burn, Faster, Stronger, Powerful, and Cut. Each workout has a different focus. There will be lots of fast feet movements on the steps and plenty of pushups, burpees, and lots of ab work!

And finally one for the weekend: Balance. This consists of some lighter cardio and strength work, and lots of stretching.

When will Transform :20 be released?

This seems to be the new norm for our programs. It will launch in 2 phases:

  1. VIP Early Access: Starting December 4th the program will be on sale on TeamBeachbody.com, this means Challenge Packs, Completion Packs, Accessory Bundles, or Stand-Alone Digital VIP AccessEarly Access workouts for Transform :20 will be on Beachbody On Demand starting January 2019.
  2. Without Early Access: VIP Early Access begins January 14, 2019 all other BOD subscribers will gain access to the program starting April 1st, 2019.

80 Day Obsession

 

 

IMG_0122

The definition of Obsession is the state of being obsessed with something or an idea that continually preoccupies or intrudes a persons’ mind. The word “obsession” didn’t sit well with me at first because I have been in a place before where I was ‘obsessed’ with my health and trust me, it wasn’t ‘healthy’. It led to deprivation, undereating, and restriction which then led to overeating, cravings, hormonal, digestive, and thyroid problems.  BUT there IS a way to be obsessed with your health and fitness and not let it CONTROL you! That was the intention with this program! The creator, Autumn Calabrese (trainer for 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and Hammer & Chisel) stated that she wants people to see the importance of becoming obsessed with you taking care of YOU. She places a major emphasis not only on nutrition and exercise, but also on self care and sleep. The program incorporates how to be your best self! I could get on board with that!

80 Day Obsession consists of 80 NEW workouts – unlike most home workout videos, you can stream a new workout everyday throughout the program. It actually lasts 97 days with Sundays as your rest days. It has been described as a Total Body Workout with an emphasis on the core & glutes. It also contains a nutrition program that is paramount to anything I have ever seen for the price. You can customize it to your fitness goals and body’s needs. I have been playing with the nutrition plan over the last week and know that it will absolutely help you achieve your goals when you use it synergistically with the workouts.

The workouts focus on specific body parts: IMG_0123

And uses special workout equipment to go along with your weights & workout mat: IMG_0124

Those little loops look like they wouldn’t do much, but let me tell you they can make my legs, booty, and arm muscles scream! Here are some examples of the moves with the bands below:

The Nutrition program sounds challenging, but in reality it’s super simple! You know how you get to a point in your fitness journey that you’re like, “JUST TELL ME WHAT TO DO! Tell me what to eat and when to eat it and tell me what workouts to do.” Have you ever been there? This program answers that question for you!

The plan is programmed around the time you workout with a pre and post-workout block. You are told to choose from a list of foods within certain food groups and combine them at certain times during the day for maximum effectiveness. In the past, I have used the portion controlled containers, but this takes the guesswork out of when to eat what!

You calculate which plan you fall into based on a formula that uses your current weight and then you see which Plan you fall into. I currently fall into “Plan A” but I have a feeling I wil be bumping up to the next level soon – when you work your body out like this you need more fuel!

Here is a sample of what my day looks like:

IMG_0100

I have tons of options and this just gives you an idea of a few!

So, here we go! 80 days of becoming my best self!

Clean Week: An Intro to Health & Fitness

 

Screen Shot 2017-10-04 at 2.03.03 PM

This post goes out to all of you who follow me and my fitness journey but are not quite sure you want to commit to a full month of clean eating, 30 minute exercises, meal planning, and starting a new lifestyle!! I totally understand – it looks super overwhelming in the beginning, but I PROMISE it gets easier and I am by your side every step of the way!!  I absolutely love clean eating and I started my journey to improving my health after my youngest was born, almost 7 years ago!  I can say that I not only have lost weight by eating clean but I have totally transformed our families life with the way we are eating.  I am really excited to share with you a brand new tool to help you start understanding the basics of clean eating, introducing yourself to exercise with under 30 minutes a day just 4x a week and a sampler of Shakeology if you would like to give that a try!

The good news is Beachbody’s newest program, CLEAN WEEK, launched October 3rd and it lets you “try on” a healthy lifestyle for just 7 days, no strings attached!!! 

Clean Week is only one week long and will show you how easy it is to make healthy choices and give you the confidence to take the next step. The best part? You do not have to fully commit to an entire challenge pack. This option allows you to sample the program for a week, to help you test out the products and be a part of my support & accountability group so I can teach you how to plan and prep, keep you motivated and share some of my tips and tools with you!

Who is Clean Week for?

This is a great program for beginners and those who have tried a fitness program and failed or haven’t started because they’re afraid to fail. You know you need to make a change, but you’re not sure where to start – Clean Week is your answer! If you want to dip your toes into health and fitness without diving in, this is the perfect program for you!!

We are all afraid to start a new job, buy a new car, make the decision to have a family but all of those things come with risks.  Life is about taking risks and seeing where it will take you.  You have no idea what you are capable until you put your mind to it. You can’t be afraid to give something a try, what’s the worst thing that could happen?  You may have to take extra water breaks or push pause to give yourself some breathing room.  But what are the rewards at the end of the day?

You can look back and say, “I did that”! You can show people your new body, you can wear clothes you’ve been wanting to wear for a long time – your jeans will glide on!  You can pull out that bathing suit that has been hanging in the back of the closet!  The possibilities are endless!  When you feel good about your body, it will show in every aspect of your life!  Other people will see your beauty radiating from within and your positive body image will reflect on others.  You can help end the trend of obesity just by saying “yes” I want to face my fear of failure and prove myself wrong! There is no room for excuses!

How does Clean Week work?

The Support and Accountability

The best part of Clean Week is the support and accountability you get from my Challenge Group! In a closed Facebook group starting on October 9th, I will provide you with daily motivation, tips, tricks, and everything you need  to make it through the week successfully!!  I am actually going to be running this group for 14 days! The 9th we will start the plan and prep process and on the 16th will be day 1 of our workouts!  I am going to be adding you to my closed online accountability and support group to give you daily tips, motivation, accountability and more.

Can one week really make a difference?
