Did you hear? Beachbody International is Happening!!
I wasn’t sure when this day would come but it’s quickly approaching!!! The Beachbody nutrition, fitness and Coaching opportunity is going international! I have NO idea where we are headed yet, all that we have been told by corporate is that we are going to be opening in a new market later this year and I am PUMPED. If you want to be the first to know when we hear where we are headed, be sure to fill out the form on this page!
So what does this mean?
I get a lot of requests from people outside of Canada and the U.S. who want to join our Coaching team and there is not much I can do.
I even get people who have been doing Beachbody Programs for years, they have been getting amazing results and even helping other people through their own weight loss journey’s, but they cannot take the next step and Coach because of where they live. Soon this will change for some of you. We will enter one new market this year and in my opinion this means that we will continue expanding into even more markets soon. I am so excited to make TEAM SHINE a worldwide team. Three years ago I made it my mission to help empower as many people as I can, to take action on their health and fitness and get focused on living their best life built on a foundation of health and fitness.
Since then, my amazing team has achieved Premier and ranked #207 out of 450,00 coaches. We are a team who shines our light often and bright to help others find what we have found. There is nothing like getting paid to get and STAY healthy and fit as we invite others along the ride with us. I cannot wait to continue this journey with even more wonderful people from around the globe!

All Access Pass
Hey Fit Friends!
It’s 6 weeks into 2017 and I’m curious…how are YOU doing with your goals? Do you feel like you may need a fresh start in February? Me, too!!! Our family was sick for most of January. But sick or not, if you are anything like the “old” me, this is about the time I would start to fall off the wagon. I would begin falling back into my late night snacking habits or forget my vision of what I was really setting out to do. Here’s what’s so GREAT about this year, we don’t have to go back to our old ways. There’s a new way of thinking and it is not the “quick fix” mentality. It’s a long-term mindset.
Let me explain more….
You know how I emailed last month about the NEW Annual All Access Pack? It’s basically Beachbody’s “Netflix” of Fitness deal and it’s been a game changer for so many on our team. I am seeing results of 8 lbs LOST for a busy working mom of 3, 16 lbs and 22 inches off for one focused woman – all in ONE month. Yep, changes are happening all over the place and if you have not jumped on this wagon, the time is NOW. So this Netflix deal is the Beachbody On Demand Exclusive ALL ACCESS Pass. For only $199, you get access to over $6000 worth of programs, nutrition guides, and extra deluxe workouts. In addition, you get access to the 3 NEW programs that Beachbody is coming out with this year!!! I don’t know what they are yet, but I know they will be GOOD!! This price is ONLY good through the end of February. My guess is that it will go up SIGNIFICANTLY in price in March if they keep it going, which it should because it’s an amazing deal!
Here is the link to take advantage the All Access Pass. CLICK ME!!!
Need a quick recap of the All Access Pass? Here is the scoop:
* Let me break it down for you….so for a FULL YEAR you get unlimited access to hundreds of workout programs — like P90X3, Insanity, 21 Day Fix, Core de Force, Body Beast — you name it!! Every single workout that Beachbody has ever made plus any new programs that come out this year! I would have KILLED for this when I signed up. You would have immediate access to LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE WORKOUT that I have used to lose weight, tone up, and stay in shape over the past 4 years!
ALL of our workouts stream LIVE from your computer, phone, tablet or smart t.v. Not only that, but you can count on being a part of my online fitness groups for the next year so you get the support and accountability to keep you committed! Did you know that 70% of people without a coach end up quitting? That is not what I want for you.
SAY what????? It’s cheaper than most gym memberships and you get to workout at home….no fighting for equipment, driving to the gym, waiting for classes. Just push play and you’re done!
Here’s what you get with the All Access Pass:
-A FULL YEAR’S ACCESS to all Beachbody programs ever created and to come out in 2017
-One month supply of the famous nutrient dense Shakeology (we all know you can’t out train a bad diet, get one meal a day you don’t have to plan)
-7 piece Portion Fix Color Coded Containers and Shakeology shaker
All of the above (yes, you get ALL 3 items) for only $199 through the end of this month only!
I would so love to help you get to your goals! That’s my PASSION! I am here as your coach to HELP you, guide you every step and encourage you! I would love to add YOU to my monthly online challenge groups to give you the support and daily accountability that most of us so desperately need!

Weighted Sumo Squats for the Win!
Day 8 // Done. Weighted Sumo Squats. Love the feeling of this move because of the turned-out-toe position. Talk about an inner thigh reconstructor! Operation Get Fit is more of a: Get my booty off the back of my thighs! ? 21 Day Fix Extreme is no joke!
Working our legs burns a ton of calories because they are such large muscles. Just don’t mind me if you see me hobbling around town..they don’t call it an Extreme workout for nothing !
I’m feeling good but still not exactly where I thought I’d be on day 8. You know that feeling of progress that feels so good? Yeah, well I’m still in the “feeling completely out of shape” stage! The cool thing is, I’ve been here before. I know that if I just fall in love with the process, my results will come. Cheers to all us girls that push past our limits and keep our eyes on the prize!
If you want to know more about the containers, watch the last video on this blog post!! Autumn, the creator of 21 Day Fix Extreme, talks about the containers. Great video to watch. Click Here for video!
So, go do some weighted sumo squats and let me know how you feel. Please contact me if you have any questions!

22 Minute Hard Corps Update
22 Minute Hard Corps is now into week 4 for my husband Matt! I am going to have him tell you all about it!
“Wow….all I can say is WOW!!! 22 Minute Hard Corps has to be the best workout program I have ever done. I have done Body Beast, P90X, Insanity, T25, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, P90X2 and P90X3. I have done half of Hammer and Chisel, got interrupted when I was rudely invited to do this test group, by corporate Beachbody!! So here I am. Already through an entire three weeks and I cannot believe how much my body has changed!
I am already down 13lbs and down over 7.5 inches…..most of the loss is in my waist and chest…my two hardest areas to tone. I have never had good definition in my abs and they are on there way to be the best I’ve ever had…..and it’s only been three weeks!! This is an eight week program! It is difficult though. There are awesome modifications, so no worries there, but it is fast pace. Tony Horton, the man, really takes this workout program to an entirely new level!! He makes 22 Minute Hard Corps the extreme. If you are already in shape….this will challenge you.
I would say I started this program in decent shape, or so I thought. As soon as I began, I knew I was going to have to dig deeper than ever before. I thought I could jump right through 22 minutes! I mean common….it is only 22 minutes!! Nope, it is awesome. Here is a little example of one of the moves. I could probably do 3 or 4 of these at the beginning, now I can do over 20!!
This last week, my wife had to go through a 3rd surgery, the 3rd in the last 3 months! It has been a challenging time. The thing I always forget is that when you are doing a full body, cardio, circuit style training, you not only gain muscle, but you gain so much energy! Energy has just gone out the roof. I have had so much fun playing with my kids at night…we will rough house for up to 3 hours after dinner! I used to be gassed after an hour! 22 Minute Hard Corps is really changing my life. I am feeling so amazing!
I also did have a slight setback…but I didn’t let that get in my way.
22 Minute Hard Corps Nutrition
This is the part that I needed a lot of work on. Prior to 22 Minute Hard Corps I had been trying to bulk. At the beginning of 2015 I was doing Body Beast. I am a tall 6’7″ man. Getting meat on my bones has not been easy, getting fat is. I can gain weight quickly. I decided to really work on it all of 2015. I did one full round of Body Beast, then almost all the way through a second round. After that I began doing a lot of circuit training with heavier weights. This meant one main thing. Food and lots of it! Definitely mostly healthy but definitely not perfect. I was averaging between 3500-4500 calories a day.
With 22 Minute Hard Corps I have lowered my calorie count to around 2400-2500 per day. I am having a ratio of 1:1 protein to my weight, higher fat and middle of the road carbohydrates. I have Shakeology (learn more about it here) once a day, sometimes twice depending on how busy I am. I really do mix macros and 21 Day Fix food containers. It is a perfect balance. The nutrition is so very important to me. I am having only natural sugars through some fresh fruit and occasional dry fruit. I am not drinking alcohol right now. There comes a point when you just want to see what your body is capable of and how it will react. I am trying to eat six meals a day. I try to keep my yellow containers to no later than 4:00PM.
This is also the part that I have to have the most discipline with. Late night snacking has always been an issue for me. Through this time I will only have Recharge (learn more about it here), an amazing Beachbody supplement or a Vegan protein shake. I do have whey protein as well, but very minimally. I use both Vega and Orgain protein powders. I tend to stay away from animal products because I am having a decent amount of meat. I always try to have greens with my meat, the fiber will help with digestion. I also have a staple kale dish I have almost everyday. I am continually tweaking it.
22 Minute Hard Corps Continues
I can’t wait for Stacy to join me. I know she would be doing far better than me at this point. Her crazy physical craziness, (you can read about it here, and here) have really taken a tole on her and I can’t wait for her to be back at it! I need my partner keeping me focused! I have one of the workouts down fully. I can do every move all the way through and am now cutting out some of the rest times….don’t worry, their not very long! I still modify pull ups and chin ups, since I still can only do a few. It is fun to see the progression! It is amazing to be in a challenge group, where everyone posts and we are all a team, focused on getting results!
I am also taking emails! If you are interested at all in doing 22 Minute Hard Corps, it will be available in March, I would love to get you in a group, so that I can notify you of it’s release as soon as it comes out! So comment on this post or better yet email us at [email protected] and put in the subject line “GETSOME”! That is the official hashtag of this program! Stacy and I look forward to going through this process with you!!

Gluten-Free Lunch Ideas!
Holla back ya’ll, you better believe I have delicious gluten-free lunch ideas ready to go! I always try to balance out my salads with a few different ingredients. I love adding fruit. Lunch is served. 2 ?‘s 1/2 ? and 1 ? This is chopped romaine, chopped celery, grapes and hemp seeds. Not excited about the celery but I’ll deal with it!.
Put the other half ? in my superfood shake (Shakeology), that counted for a ❤(protein). When you don’t have any meat prepped, this is what you get. Couldn’t do the 21 Day Fix without my shakes!
