Autoimmunity and fitness with Focus T25

While looking for a specific youtube video I made recently, I came across this one from October 30, 2013 filmed during Focus T25 Speed 3.0. In this video, I was struggling because I had not had anything to eat prior to working out. While I have worked out first thing in the morning for years, since developing Sjogren’s Syndrome, this has become problematic. I feel weak and nauseous during my workouts. I just realized that at some point, I started working out again on an empty stomach and was fine. I felt great, in fact. I had awesome P90X3 and 21 Day Fix workouts! I am now back to struggling and didn’t make the connection to not eating before a workout! I think this happened because I started waking up later and therefore, didn’t have time for my morning Shakeology to digest and workout before having to start school with the boys. I think when I am in an autoimmune flare, I need to have some fuel before my workout. I’m looking forward to my workouts next week to see if it makes a big difference with my current struggles.

Focus T25 Before/After Pics!

If you have any doubt about Shaun T’s latest program, Focus T25, you absolutely must read Tania Baron’s blog post at Shaun T’s blog. After being nicknamed “The Machine”taniaF25
from being in the Insanity videos, Tania doubted she’d ever have that Machine body after a pregnancy and c-section. Focus T25 changed that for her in just 10weeks! YES! Just one round!

If you’re wonder what I’m talking about, read my previous blog posts about Focus T25!

One of our Beachbody slogans is Fitness – Nutrition – Support. The fitness is provided on DVDs from some of the very best celebrity trainers such as Shaun T with his latest workout, Focus T25. Support is provided by me!  I am here to help motivate and guide people with the programs. Nutrition is provided by the well thought out nutrition guides. When people join others traveling the same journey, they are more successful. If you want to join others as we travel the road to better fitness and nutrition, fill out the form below so you can get started today!

If you’re just starting your fitness/weight loss journey, Tania is the modifier in T25! She makes this workout no impact. I have had several people start out following Tania and by their second round of Focus T25, are now joining the rest of the crew more and more! This program grows with you! Even after doing Insanity, P90X, Asylum, I found T25 challenging. And I was shocked that after working out 25min/day, I could still go back to an Asylum workout or Insanity workout and perform very well! What were my changes that I loved the most? It has to be my LEGS! I finally got the definition in my thighs – slimmer, less bulky – that I had wanted! And of course, anything Shaun T does works your core! The core needs constant attention and it gets it in Focus  T25!

If you’re ready to change your life – you’re in luck – Focus T25 Challenge Pack (Focus T25 plus one month of Shakeology, the healthiest meal of the day) is on sale for one more week!

Here are two clips from peeps who have done Focus T25!

Focus T25 Success Story – You too can win $500!

Meet Rick! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for February 22nd! I was inspired to post his story because I identified with sleeping poorly, anxiety and low energy. That all  changed for me when I started my health and fitness journey with P90X. Focus T25 is accessible to everyone with Tania as the modifier. As Rick stated, it’s easy to press play everyday but the challenge for most is changing poor eating habits! Let me help you get FOCUSED with my online Focus T25 virtual support group! You can write your own success story and possibly win $500 for sharing your story and motivating others! Fill out my form at the bottom of this page, so I can contact you!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?

Rofl, not so hot, I wanted to look better but I love, LOVE good food. I have to say, what a gigantic change. I slept poorly, I had anxiety, I didn’t like myself a whole lot, just all around bleh…..

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?

A picture with my wife in my Mess Dress Tuxedo for a military event, I swear I looked like a Shar Pei in a Tux!! Wrinkly bloated face, and when I smiled my eyes disappeared. I couldn’t believe the way I looked and there was no way i was going to pass a physical or meet the requirements for my next military physical readiness test. For lack of a better way yo put it, I had lost my pride and professionalism, it was like I no longer cared and I needed to fix that!

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?

Learning to eat, hands down. Doing the workouts are tough but easy to commit to, but eating right, and pre-planning to eat during the week was rough out the gates. I have since got a clue, and its easy to pack a lunch for the next day, and the more I learn the more fun and interesting it becomes to figure out healthy ways to put together meals I like the taste and consistency of.

Why did you choose this particular program?

You infomercial worked?? lol Honestly I was traveling for work and feeling sorry for myself about that tux picture, and a T25 commercial was on and I just made up my mind to do it. The workout lengths seemed perfect and I didn’t want to jump into something like P90X and kill myself. I can assure now that I am ready and charging to get started on P90X3!!!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?

Workout time, and honestly Shaun T is the man! The production quality of the videos really does make you feel like he is there, and I liked the variety. Even during Alpha and Beta the variety is there and things switch up as I moved from modified to full on!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?

WOW! I am done from 232 to 206, that is 26 pounds!!! I am down 6 inches around my wasit! I have to wear belts with everything to keep my pants up, and I totally plan to pitch most of my clothes and never go back to a XL shirt or 36-38 pants! I am proud that I did it, I have been told it is hard to commit and I have, 100% for the last 60 days, and it has been worth the fight against ever craving, the tired days, and the plain old ugh days. I DID IT!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?

I was having anxiety issue that were being treated with medication, I had blood pressure that was slowly creeping up, and I had constant pain in my joints, knees, shoulders, back…..being unhealthy and out of shape was getting ready to wipe me out permanently. I recently went to my Doctor for a routine physical, and I am OFF ALL MEDS, my body feels great, I sleep amazing, my energy is up, and my ability to cope with the BS of every day life is improved 100%!!! I feel great I am starting to believe I look great and I am proud of being ME!

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?

I used Shakeology to fill gaps when I missed meals or snacks, but not consistently enough to determine if it actually helped or not. I did notice that it is effective in cutting back cravings, so when I had cravings I would go knock back a glass of shakeology to fight the urge.

Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc…)

BP down, 135/89 to 115/80, off Anxiety Meds, no more pain in knees joints back…

What tips or tools did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental?

The beachbody Gym, and my polar H7 Heart Rate monitor. These tools enable me to track and see progress even when the mirror and scale where being stubborn and trying to convince me otherwise. I highly encourage everyone to use tools to track and view progress, its motivating on those days when you look in the mirror and want to throw in the towel.

Tips from Shaun T on starting Focus T25

 

There has never been a better time than now to get fit. Exercise science has taken us to working out just 25min/day to achieve the same results that used to take an hour! Sign up for my challenge group today, by filling out the form below!

Why should I do Focus T25 if I’ve done Insanity/P90X/Asylum?

I have gotten the question, “What do you think of Focus T25 since you’re a

P90X/Insanity/Asylum1/Asylum2 graduate?”

 

I am finding Focus T25 every bit as challenging. I am focusing on form and compound movements in Focus T25. I also wear my BodyBugg when I workout. During an Insanity workout, I spent about half the Max workouts in the vigorous workout zone (greater than 6calories/min burned) whereas in Focus T25, I spend nearly all of the 25min in the vigorous workout zone!!! That is what Steve Edwards means by Focus T25 is “efficient.”

Steve Edwards is the man in the know so check out his full blog entry, here,  for all the science behind Focus T25!

 

“You have room to improve at Insanity, P90X, et al.

Whether we think so or not, most of us (probably all of us) still have room to improve at whatever our favorite workout program or activity happens to be. A round of T25 will help this, even if it serves as an “active recovery” or “transition phase” on your calendar.

The reason is proprioception, discussed in the last post. By slowing down your movements and working on form you will re-program your brain and this will lead to both changes in hormone production and, more importantly for you at this point, an improved nervous system that will better handle the rigors of the next graduate program you do.”

Results for my Focus T25 online fitness groups have been amazing. This is the FINAL week of the Focus T25 Challenge Pack sale!
