So while I have been managed to stay consistent "staying in shape", as your support coach and hopefully friend, I still long to be better and express my, with Tammy my wife our desire to help you.

Coaches Corner - 10/6/15

What is your Challenge & Energize review

Focus T25 - challenging each other
We have 3 others joining us in our Focus T25 challenge for the next few months. How are you doing? We would enjoy being accountable to even more of you. Tammy and I often use the Energy and Endurance product before our workouts (usually only 1 scoop which is a 1/2 dose). Recently I tried the new Energize at a full dose which for this product is 1 scoop. See my review below for information. Also Tuesday, Tammy shared her heart about what it means to face a challenge. I wanted to repost it here and encourage you to ask yourself what challenge are you facing? Will you come out better for it in the other end? (T25 Review)

Words from my wife...Stop Wallowing (Tammy's post
We are on day 2 of our Autumn T25 challenge but I am undertaking another challenge this season as well. For me fitness is the easy part. I love to workout, the tougher the better. I'm kind of intense that way. I can see and feel the effects mentally and physically. However, the greater challenge is my day to day attitude toward home and family. We are in a rough season that has been pressing, discombobulating and just plain hard. It has torn me down and I want to be built back up. I want to be "good" when someone asks how I am. I want to rise above my emotions and experience a free life again not the oppression I have been under. I am making it my Autumn challenge to stop wallowing in the difficulties. To focus on the the little good things that happen everyday and pray when they don't. So I ask you, what's your challenge? Is it your health? I can help, send me a message. Is it home? Is it family? Is it something else? Then let's journey together. I will hold you up in prayer.

Energize review

(Note Additional Drink Information found here - Drinks: Recovery, Protein and Shakeology)

The short review, is this one is probably not for me. I had tried it before, at 1/2 scoop and it was fair. I tried a full scoop today and experienced the tingling from the Beta Alanine that is expected. This reaction is normal as stated in the "Watch this video" link about the science of the product. I may try a reduced dosage again, but I did not like the feeling. Beta Alanine is a great endurance substance and the supplement is state of the art, but it may not be for me at this time and for the Focus T25 routine. Many may not mind the tingle, but for me I will be returning to 1 scoop of the Energy & Endurance for the pre-workout drink. With either product it is key yo start your workout within 5-10 minutes for us, or we feel a bit anxious (Tammy and I do not have caffeine in our normal diet.) Below is information about Energize.

What is the science behind the Energize formula?
Watch this video on Energize.

What can cause a tingling sensation while using Energize?
Beta Alanine, an amino acid naturally occurring in the body, elevates levels of the protein carnosine.

Is the tingling sensation normal?
Yes. The effect will subside with the onset of exercise and with continued, regular use.

Was tingling taken into account when calculating the dosage?
Yes. The Energize dosage of 800mg is shown to be the most effective while keeping tingling to a minimum.

What is difference between the Energize and E&E formulas?
E&E was developed in 2010; Energize is the best energy formula according to current scientific consensus.

Why is Energize not fortified with Vitamins C & E (antioxidants)?
Concentrated levels of antioxidant vitamins like C & E impede adaptation if taken near a workout.

Why is adaptation to exercise important?
New exercise causes changes important to the progress of muscles, bones, and the cardiovascular system.

What causes the bright yellow color in Energize and Hydrate?
The ingredient quercetin (a natural phytonutrient present in fruits & vegetables) causes the yellow color.

What does the yellow color indicate?
Yellow indicates high purity & potency in quercetin; Beachbody uses the highest quality in the industry.

Is the beet sugar in Energize GMO-free?
PCR analysis testing by the supplier for the presence of GMO DNA showed no measurable GMO DNA.

Will Energize replace E&E? Will E&E be discontinued?
There are no current plans to discontinue E&E.

My part in your Success

Tammy and I are in Week 5 of P90X3 and today was Triometrics. One of the nice things I like about P90X3 is that I often do not remember what to expect. Even with Tony Horton giving his usually breaks as he chats between moves, it gave him a good sweat by the end.

Before a workout I often think of you. Some of you are succeeding and I really encourage you to send me a message about what you have accomplished. It would be of great encouragement to me. Yet some of you may have continued to put it off and to put it bluntly have fallen short of what you know you want for yourself. I really wish I had the perfect words to get you going again. I know all too well that it is not about me and you have to be ready for the change. While I do want to do all that I can for you, I am asking you to take the step and reach out.

I have been excited to see all the nutritional help Tammy (my wife) has been able to give to others through her Facebook page and encourage you to "friend" her and tell her Jay sent you. Our Facebook accounts are here: Jay and Tammy.

So I am asking for a Call to Action. If you are continuing to Reverse the Trend and have had positive changes in your life I want to hear about it. If you are still hesitating, you need to step out and contact me about how we can get you going. Lastly, if you are going strong or are ready to make a new commitment, here are this month's Team Beachbody specials below.

21 Day Fix Extreme is now available! Check out all of the February Specials in this video and choose the right one for you!

Is it worth the effort?

Pomegranates are an intriguing fruit. I probably have only had them six times in my life and yes it was always a struggle. Then I saw this video of a farmer cutting one open
Opening a Pomegranate (1:26 minute Video)

I thought, "I've been doing it all wrong, I'm ready to do this!" So since we had a pomegranate from our CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture), I set out to harvest the pomegranate fruit.

Well, the steps are shown below, it was a lot of work.

Harvesting the seeds
Run seeds through blender and mesh
It is full of vitamins and a whole food. but ...

I wanted to quit many times but I stuck through and I succeeded...I got pomegranate juice (less than a cup). Was it worth it for me? I'd have to say no. Will I do it again? probably not. (Side note: I saw additional methods that "whack" the pomegranate after opening it... yes I was ready to whack it at the end.)

Yet, the whole experience reminded me of how many people who buy a Beachbody fitness program might feel.
 They, for some time have been intrigued with fitness, but have struggled with getting it to work. Then they saw an ad of one of the Beachbody products (P90, P90X, Insanity, T25, PiYo, 21-day Fix or possible Brazil Butt lift.) The add made it look easy. So program was purchased. Unfortunately, many people do not see it through to the end. While I saw the pomegranate through to the end,  it wasn't worth it to me, I am convinced of and found that those like myself that commit to any of the Beachbody programs, all the way to the end, find it a worthwhile investment.

Have and follow a plan

This week our Focus T25 routine had Total Body Circuit ,twice, which is the hardest for me in the Alpha series. I would not have chose to do this routine twice in one week. And that is why I need a program to follow. As tough as I like to think I am, when it is up to me, I (while not always) would choose an easier way. How about you? Do you have a plan, a trainer that pushes you? How do you go beyond what you think you are able?

Here is a video (Happy Healthy Holidays!) about how to make a plan for the Holidays. So are you giving your fitness plan the best you can? Is it working? Give me your testimony, so that I can send it to the many others that would be encouraged with your efforts.
