Why I Decided to become a Team Beachbody Coach

I have many reasons for becoming a coach. The main one... I wanted to help people adopt a healthy lifestyle and experience the amazing changes that I had!

I have been providing free coaching since 2004 with Beachbody and am thoroughly enjoying the relationships and friends I have made along the way. Not to mention all of the success stories I have witnessed.

This video sums up my reasons and features many of my firneds and their success stories.

Enjoy and then Join me!


Pumpkin Pie Shakeology Recipe

From our Beachbody Newsletter this month! Get Shakeology Here!

Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Shakeology!

Pumpkin Pie ShakeologyPut a little Halloween cheer into your Shakeology this season. In addition to all the amazing Shakeology ingredients, you'll also get the nutritional benefits of pumpkin, which contains lutein, fiber, and alpha and beta carotene. Plus, the healthy polyphenols in cinnamon help regulate blood sugar levels. You'll get all the taste of pumpkin pie...without turning your butt into a pumpkin.

  • 1 cup rice, soy, almond, or low-fat milk (plain or vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, unsweetened
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • Ice (optional)

Combine all ingredients in blender and combine until smooth. You can substitute pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and nutmeg or add more pumpkin for a thicker shake. Makes 1 serving.

Who do you know and love?

Many of you know I started my fitness journey back in April 2003. Since that life-changing 90 day experience with Power 90 I have worked hard to inspire people to take charge of their own health and fitness. I do my best to workout every day and model healthy habits (most of the time). I also reach out to thousands every month through my fitness podcasts.

I am challenging YOU to inspire someone to do the same. A new decade is approaching. Imagine being around those you love who can take on 2010 with renewed energy, life, passion and health! Really... do it now... IMAGINE IT.

OK, now think of at least two people you know and love who could benefit from the life-changing workout programs and products Team Beachbody has.

  • Turn them onto the free tools, contests and support TeamBeachbody has.
  • Ask them to join you for the next 90 days.
  • Have them become a free community member
  • Add that person as a buddy
  • Invite them to log into WOWY (the online super gym)
  • Keep in touch DAILY just for 90 days and note how people change more than just physically!

There's a wide variety of workout program for any fitness personality. There's even a FREE one that can played on the computer - a 25 minute where Tony Horton and Brian (Brian weighs in at 400+ pounds) demonstrate how a person who has a lot of weight to lose can get things moving and start to change their life!

There's your challenge. Inspire two or more people to join you on your fitness journey. You can bet that 2010 will look very different!

It's so impressive how people are making themselves a priority. Please keep being billboards of health and fitness and share with someone you know and love.

Tag Me! Perry Tinsley’s Power Blast Podcast

“You’re It”

Yep, that simple little phrase from our childhood as we played a game galled tag. Most of the time you didn’t want to be “it” unless you had a crush on someone and wanted to try and tag them!

Tagging has taken on new meanings in the Social Media world and I love being Tagged so I’m it!

You see, back in April of 2007 I started a weekly video podcast, that, at the time seemed to have an endless array of topics. It was intended to share my experiences with P90X and Power 90 as well as poke fun at health and fitness.

Well, sustaining a weekly podcast became more and more of a challenge for one reason or another. Still, the feedback I was getting was quite overwhelming and I make a conscious effort each week to have one ready to go. Challenges always present themselves such as time, topic and tech glitches. Still... the feedback, the “fans!” I do it all for the “fans!” OK, that may be over the top.

Anyway, back to tagging. As I dig more and more into social media sites I have been able to share Power Blast Podcast with even more people. On Facebook I even created a... wait for it... YES... a FAN PAGE!! I get to tag myself once a week. I know. Not the idea. Still, I do have special guests n the show from time to time and plan on tagging others.

So, now the podcast can be found on the Power Blast Fitness web site, iTunes, YouTube and Facebook!

Tag me baby! You’re it!

Downsizing, Consolidating & Penny Pinching

I’ve been giving “downsizing,” “consolidating,” and “penny pinching” some thought lately. While many people have been recently forced into situations where this is necessary, I think I have been working at these the past few years. Saving money and time is huge! I started looking at those around me to find ideas. So far, I really like what many of us are doing!

When it comes to health and fitness, there is no compromise. None!

Gym memberships that rarely gets used saves big bucks. Plus, I found that I am in better shaped and condition than I ever got at a gym. Probably because I had a good plan and stayed consistent by working out at home with Beachbody DVDs.

Downsizing?? Well, since just about every Beachbody program requires so little space and equipment, it’s easy to have a home gym!

When it comes to eating, don’t give in to those bogus “meal deals” that fast food chains and restaurants lure us into with FREE meals or 2 for one! I mean... sure we save now, but at what cost later?? Really! Think about it! “We need to eat, so let’s eat garbage to save money.” Not a good way to behave.

One way I have seen many save on costs is using the BB Club or Coach discount (10-25%) on products. Those who have value the amazing feeling form that magical shake called Shakeology and given all that’s in there, it’s probably the most bang for the buck when it comes to the BB product catalog! :)

There are so many other perks too when it comes to this amazing company like the FREE tools, FREE online community of friends and FREE online gym and contests to win... yep... FREE MONEY!!

So, I think it’s amazing what all of us have discovered to downsize, consolidate, and penny pinch when it comes to our health and fitness. At least we have that part of our lives burning a little brighter!

Now we need to share with those we love so they can benefit!

One Year From Now - A Totally New Body

Often when I was in my 20s and 30s and getting fatter and fatter I had had visions of going away to a fat camp or fitness camp or some sort of retreat where I could live for a year and work hard to totally transform my body and my health. I often pictured the scene as people would barely recognize me and would ask lots of questions or statements like, "What's your secret?" "What Have you been doing" or "Man, you look awesome!"

Well, I never made it to that get away and years passed without any progress in the health arena. Guess what! I kept growing bigger and feeling weak, tired, lethargic, and crumpy. Yep. Me...Grumpy. I was edgy a lot of the time.

Well, as you know I discovered that infomercial that changed my life and didn't need to get away to change my body, health or life. Now I feel energized, happy and look pretty darn fit!

So, I was thinking. We are heading into a new decade. How can I help others with their own "getaway transformation camp" without leaving home?

Easy! Connect with me and let's formulate a plan for one year. I'll coach and motivate you for FREE!

We will break down the entire year into 3 month sections. I have a few tracks in mind. I know everyone has a different fitness personality, but I'll share one here.

Month 1-3 Power 90 / Turbo Jam
Month 4-6 Chalene Extreme
Month 7-9 P90X
Month 10-11 Insanity
Month 12 - Whatever you want. You'll be a whole new person!

Contact me on starting your one-year fitness journey. Also, save on shipping for any of the workout programs listed to save major bucks on shipping. Plus you'll be automatically connected to me for your coach!

You will succeed and the 2010 will be the start of an amazing decade!!
