What in the heck!!!!!! This Transformation Tuesday is EXTRA special to me because it is my ❤️ main squeeze!
He and I have been trying to figure out this whole “healthy lifestyle” thing for YEARS!!! I must admit, he’s much better at going “all in” with diet and I’m better at going “all in” with fitness. His issue is portion control and mine is saying goodbye to occasional treats. ?
Well, when he got invited to the super exclusive Beachbody Test Group in the beginning of January, it was a bigger blessing than both of us even knew at the time!!! He completed round 2 at the end of May, 2016, and has not only found his steady rhythm on the fitness side, he’s also been as diligent as I’ve seen anyone be with his diet! I’m in AWE of the control he’s had!!!!! The small 40 person online accountability group was his anchor ⚓️ and our food prep each week was his ?edge. He pushed through and stuck to it every single day.
He did have a week off between rounds. Each round of 22 Minute Hard Corps is 8 or 9 weeks, depending if you decide to do Hell Week. Transformation Tuesday is all about people being consistent and my hubby really fits the bill.
We’ve both found our SWEET SPOT in all of this because of Beachbody. It’s nutrition (daily superfoods) + fitness + support = SUCCESS —>Sounds cheesy but it stinking works!!! No more guessing games and fad diets for us! Praise JESUS 😉 We truly have found our placement and what is really
His stats are 31 lbs gone and 15.25 inches lost overall for this Transformation Tuesday!! Please comment if you or your hubby needs to get moving in your journey!!! We all need encouragement to JUST KEEP GOING!!!! It’s a journey. It doesn’t happen overnight, but as you can see, if you focus for about 5 months, a lot can change.

Finally, 22 Minute Hard Corps!
I finally get to do 22 Minute Hard Corps. I have been watching my husband just kill it the last 7 weeks while I have been having surgeries and been super sick… (thanks antibiotics!!!) I was approved by Beachbody Corporate to do the workouts ahead of the launch of this amazing program!! Yay! It is short, sweet and I love it! I definitely have to modify some of the moves, and am not doing every single set, but overall it is a HIIT style workout that pushes me past my limits! 22 Minute Hard Corps is very hardcore.
I think I am going to like it a lot, but it will definitely push me beyond normal. I am crazy about form, I like to do every move as perfect as possible. Tony Horton, the creator of 22 Minute Hard Corps, doesn’t want you to sacrifice form, but he pushes you hard and fast. Some of the moves that Matt, my husband is doing in the advanced workouts, are tough to keep up with. Matt is going to do a second round, just to get everything totally down and so that he can get through every workout perfectly. I struggle with all things push ups and pull ups. Those are going to be my trouble areas. Want to know how amazing this program is….Matt has already lost 19 lbs and over 9 inches….in just 7 weeks!! He is looking good! I can also see the energy he has now. He had been doing Body Beast and then started Hammer and Chisel right before being invited to do the test group. I haven’t seen him so excited about a program ever.
Here’s a little sample pack of what you have to expect.
I got done with my first full week and it was a challenge for this rebounding mom! 22 Minute Hard Corps is definitely a boot camp style workout. It is about twice as fast paced as my old circuit classes I would take at the YMCA. This is also a great program to change up with Turbofire. They are nothing alike, but really can compliment each other. Being a Turbofire and Chalene Johnson “lifer” (both are my first love because they changed my life) it is sometimes jump out of my comfort zone. 22 Minute Hard Corps is the perfect jump.
I am excited to be doing this program and I’m excited for others to join me! My husband has lost 18 lbs through 7 weeks and lost over 9 inches!! I’m excited how my body will respond…I already feel the changes happening!

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!!

22 Minute Hard Corps Test Group!
Beachbody Corporate has picked about 60 people out of all the coaches in the company to be in a test group for 22 Minute Hard Corps which releases in March of 2016. It is sort of like their own personal Challenge Group! Well, I am proud to say that my husband, Matt Rody, was asked to be apart of it!! Here is my husband announcing that he gets to be in the Test Group:
“Merry Christmas to me!! ?. Holy moly I can’t believe this just happened! Out of over 400,000 coaches and countless others that do the workouts…..I, me, muah, was somehow selected by Corporate Beachbody to be in a test group. Not just any test group and not with just any workout! We are talking the not yet released 22 Minute Hard Corps, made by Beachbody and the one and only, my favorite instructor ever, Tony Horton!!!!!
To say I am excited would be the understatement of my life! ?. I am so very humbled, but also giddy with exuberance and ready to share the process starting on January 4th for the next 8 weeks!! It is going to military style…I am nervous!! Well, wish me luck and who knows, maybe I’ll end up on an infomercial!! ?? #getsome“
Here is a preview of what you are going to be looking forward to!!
22 Minute Hard Corps is going to be amazing. The reason I love working with Beachbody is that Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon, the owners, really try to find new workouts that fit our crazy lifestyles. This workout does not require weights, which will be awesome for a lot of people. Matt is ready to “bring it” as Tony Horton always says. “22 Minute Hard Corps is your no-nonsense, boot-camp-butt-kicking fitness program. Legendary trainer Tony Horton has created this simple to follow program inspired by techniques used in the military. Each 22-minute workout is a total body drill designed to get you “boot camp fit” in 8 weeks.” Follow my husband Matt Rody on Facebook as he goes through the process! Get ready because 22 Minute Hard Corps is going to be amazing!

P90X3 has been an amazing change from any other workout I have ever done. Having a workout that is only 30 minutes a day is a gift beyond my imagination. This means if you want you can do a double some days, but having a half hour work out really allows you to have no excuse to not workout!! That is what it has done for me and will for you too!! Tony Horton is back to usual cornball antics and I love it!
