We’re so close to the New Year! Jan. 1, 2017 is just 2 weeks away, and that means New Year’s resolutions abound. Do you know what the top 10 New Year’s resolutions were last year? As you probably can guess, getting fit and losing weight topped the list (as it usually does). Lots of people will be joining gyms and start eating healthy with enthusiasm and high hopes for the transformations they will see in the coming year.
Here are some of the typical top 10 resolutions (lists vary depending on who did the polling):
Learn Something New
More Family Time
Enjoy Life More
Why are these resolutions always so popular? Well, it’s because people believe accomplishing these things will make them happier.
I admit, I don’t really make formal resolutions, but I do have a tendency to try to establish healthier habits with each New Year. I’m sure that has everything to do with the overindulgence of the holidays. I eat all the good stuff when it’s there (like cookies, mashed potatoes, oven-baked mac & cheese, etc., etc., etc.), and once January rolls around, I always find I’ve bloated up. So I jump on the fitness bandwagon.
Usually I burn out after a couple of months and any thoughts of “transforming” go out the window. Why is that? We set these goals for ourselves every year, and despite best intentions, most of us fail at them every single year.
What if I told you I now know the secret to keeping those resolutions and reaching your goals? Would you come with me and transform yourself alongside me?
I know how you can stick to losing weight, exercising more, spending less, and enjoy life more. It’s simple, really. All you need is to identify the real reason you want to do these things, and then find support in creating and maintaining your new habits from someone who will remind you why you set these goals in the first place.
That’s exactly what a Challenge Group is! As your coach, I’ll help you dig into why you have set these goals for yourself, and I’ll be there to give you the kick in the pants you need to stick to them. Say, you want to lose weight. Great. Lots of people want to lose weight. But why to you want to lose weight? What’s your WHY?
I have a lot of why’s. I want to be the best mom, wife, friend, and daughter I can be, for as long as possible. When I exercise and eat better, I feel better, and it is easier to do better. When I do better, I can show my daughters how to be the good in the world. When my body is healthier, I can do more with my family and friends and make more memories with them.
So, let’s find your why so you can stay motivated and determined enough to reach your goals in 2017. Make this your year to transform into who you want to be. Your goals may be smaller or bigger than mine (ultimately I’d like to lose roughly 25lbs of fat, keep increasing strength, and lower my blood pressure without resorting to medication). Whatever your goals are, they’re yours and I want to help you get there with my Get Fit, Get Happy 2017 Challenge Group!
When does the Challenge Group start and what does it entail?
My Get Fit, Get Happy 2017 group starts on Jan. 2. Workout programs begin on Jan. 9 and we finish our group on Feb. 5. The group will be hosted on Beachbody’s My Challenge Tracker app, and everything we post will only be visible to other members of the group. I’m keeping this group off of Facebook so none of us have the temptation to get lost in the scroll hole that is the Facebook Newsfeed when we’re supposed to be checking into the Challenge Group (that newsfeed is my nemesis!). The week leading up to Jan. 9 is our prep week. During this week I will ask you to set your goals and take before pictures and measurements (you can share these with the group or keep them to yourself). We’ll also dive into meal planning/prepping so we’re ready to go when we start our programs on Jan. 9. The first week is spent on planning so that you are mentally prepared to jump into your program and get the results you want. After planning week, I’ll post daily tips, motivation, support, recipes, and sample meal plans & templates. This will be a safe, supportive, friendly environment where we will share our ups and downs. You will be expected to post in the group everyday and tell us how your day went (your post can be whatever you like, sweaty selfies, pictures of your food, text saying “today was ____”, etc.). When you have finished your program, you will post your results in any way you feel comfortable (you don’t have to reveal any numbers whatsoever if you don’t want to!), and you have the choice to continue on in my groups, or stop. Simple!
Who is the Challenge Group for?
I’m looking for 15-20 people who are not already working with a Beachbody Coach. If you have a coach, please reach out to him/her because I’m sure they’ll have a New Year group to help you reach your goals! If you do NOT have a coach, please fill out the form here and I will contact you! If you want immediate access to the tools on the Team Beachbody site, you can create your FREE account here and I will contact you to help you figure out what program is for you.
What are the requirements?
For this group, you are required to purchase a Challenge Pack. Beachbody asserts that Fitness + Nutrition + Support = SUCCESS. A Challenge Pack and my group offer you all 3 of these things. With a Challenge Pack and this group, you’ll have:
- A fitness program designed to give you results through effective workouts and a healthy eating plan.
- Nutritional support with a 30-day supply of Shakeology*. Shakeology is so much more than a protein drink or a nutritional supplement. It is a nutritional shake that gives you a daily dose of dense nutrition and can be used as a meal replacement or a snack (I add peanut butter and a banana and have it for breakfast everyday. So fast and easy!). I am convinced it is the reason I’m only eating 1 or 2 small cookies a day this holiday season, rather than 4 or 5!
- A 30-day trial of the Premium Club Membership, which gives you access to Beachbody On Demand (includes 25+ FULL fitness programs, sneak peak workouts from premium programs, healthy cooking shows, and more).
- Support from me and your fellow challengers.
- A money-back guarantee. If you don’t achieve the results you want from your program, you will receive a full refund (even if your bag of Shakeology is totally empty!).
**The price of your Challenge Pack varies depending on the program you choose. Current prices are $140-$275, which are a savings of $50-$80 if you were to buy each item in the Pack individually.**
Anyone who signs up before the end of 2016 will receive a FREE Giveaway from me! I have a Beachbody Core Comfort Mat, a couple of Fixate Cookbooks, a couple of Create 365 The Mini Happy Planner Fitness Edition, and a few other goodies. Order your Challenge Pack and tell me you want one of my goodies before the ball drops in New York City and I’ll tell you what choices you have.
BONUS! THE HEALTH BET IS BACK!
If you track your workouts and log your Shakeology in the My Challenge Tracker app for 4 weeks from Jan. 9-Feb. 5, you will win money! The pot is a minimum of $2 million, and all you have to do to get your share is log 3 workouts per week and 5 Shakeology drinks with photo per week. It’s a simple way to get paid back some real CA$H for tracking your healthy habits. Read more here.
What if I think a minimum of $140 is too much money?
How much would you spend on a gym membership, and how much more do you have to pay for personal attention? With Beachbody fitness programs, you only pay for the program once and then it’s yours to keep, there is a minimum of equipment to buy, you can do the workouts in the comfort of your home, and you get personal attention from your coach as well as the support of your fellow challengers. You’ll save time you would have spent driving to a gym, waiting for the equipment you want to be free, and driving back from the gym. You won’t have to shower in any locker rooms or carry your gym shoes around with you. If you decide you aren’t satisfied with your program, you can send it back for a full refund (and I’ll even help you do it!). I’d say $140 is a pretty good deal for everything you get with a Challenge Pack!
And if you want a 25% discount ongoing, you can sign up as a coach just for the discount and you don’t have to ever sell anything or run any groups unless you want to!
How do I sign up?
You have a couple of options. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or go here and enter your information in the form and I will get back to you within 24 hours, or you can go to my Team Beachbody Coach site if you want to go ahead and purchase your Challenge Pack and I will contact you within 24 hours to get you set up with My Challenge Tracker.
