I Found Myself Glued Again!

Seven years ago I found myself glued to the TV set watching this infomercial about how I might someday become healthy and fit. Well, we know how that story turned out. I saw a Beachbody video today and that got me thinking about their marketing of amazing products.

I was thinking at how Beachbody infomercials draw you in and make you feel like they are being aired just for YOU! The elements in each broadcast hit on so many levels that I know many identify with; whether it's weight loss, getting fit, living a better life, or just being healthy and happy.

The biggest plus, is that their products deliver on their promise. And then some! You see, not only will a person see results when they follow the programs or use the products, but those results tend to have a positive impact on those around you whether you know it or not. I love that fact and that's why I try to share the love of health and fitness whenever I can.

Back to the video I saw. If you check out the one they did on Shakeology you'll see why I was glued. As I watched, I felt compelled to want to know more and how I can get in on all the benefits from that product. For me, I'm happy to say, I already am.

So, what was the infomercial or advertisement impacted your life? Would love to hear how your life changed and who else it impacted!

Here's the video link. Please share with anyone who could benefit.

What do I have to prove with Shaun T's Insanity?

I Have to admit it. Since getting a teaser of what this Insanity workout is all about this past March I was not amped up about its release. So, as the year progressed and we got a teaser preview and all the hyp building around it, I still was not excited. I was afraid. I know this workout is not for everyone and will be VERY DEMANDING for anyone who gives it their best. I also know it takes a certain mindset to push through it. There are no modifications. All or nothing with this one.

So, I have the option of just watching from the sidelines while my friends tear themselves apart with this program. I mean, what do I have to provc? I'm in the best shape of my life. I'm 45 years old and heck, I'm not trying to make the Olympic team or the NFL for that matters.

Guess what. I bought it anyway. Call it impulse- In the moment- Gotta have the latest and greatest. Call it whatever. I bought it...within 30 minutes of it being announced!!

Once I clicked the "buy" button. I paced the house waiting and waiting for that darn UPS truck to get here. Everyone else was getting theirs! Where's mine??

It arrived. You know what I did. Nothing. I panicked. Yes I opened it and looked at the impressive packaging. That's it. Maybe I'll try a few of the workouts. Maybe I'll give it a shot next month.

Well, I heard an infomercial was done about Insanity. Someone posted it on YouTube. I watched all there segments last night.

Guess what! I'm starting today. I have everything to prove and it's all me baby! I'm going to see what I'm made of. 60 days... Make it Insane!

Who's with me? Will it be you? Please join me in proving it to ourselves. We can do it!

If you're fit and committed. Get Insanity here! There's even a Deluxe package here with extra workouts and Recovery Drink!

Shaun Ts Insanity - Hazardous to Your Health ?

Well, the the highly anticipated Shaun T workout called Insanity should be announce in Mid July assuming all planets have aligned. So, I have been gearing up for this mind-blowing workout series. Because I get the Tony Horton One - on - One DVDs that arrive at my mailbox once a month (subscription is only a 1¢ in the month of July), Beachbody throws in bonus DVDs from time to time. Last time we got a free Insanity workout! So, PT has been doing that one once or twice a week while doing the One on Ones.

After literally getting smacked upside the head this morning by Shaun T. it occurred to me that this video series could be dangerous to your health if certain precautions aren't taken. You see, you are going to need a lot of towels and rather absorbent clothing. As I worked out all I notices were pools of sweat collecting on the floor. Pretty rough on the footwork. Good thing I have hardwood flooring and grippy shoes!

So, while this upcoming series is going to no doubt whip me into better shape, I can see the dangers that lie ahead.

Care to live dangerously with me?? Let's get Insane!
