The Body Beast workout routine is designed to pack on up to 10 pounds of muscle mass in 90 days. Sagi also developed an in-depth bodybuilding nutrition plan that provides lots of quick, simple-to-prepare, delicious meals that will help pack on the muscle—fast. Caleb did it!

Body Beast TransformationCaleb was so scrawny, his friends used to call him “string bean.” But then he activated BEAST MODE and gained 13 lbs. of solid muscle mass with Body Beast®. He entered his results and won $1,000 in the Beachbody Challenge™!

Ladies, it’s not just for the men. I discovered weight training a long time ago and LOVED the results! My body totally changed. My muscles didn’t bulk up (as some women may believe), but they were firmer, more defined, and I was stronger. My abs were flatter than they had ever been. You know I loved that! Even now, I try to choose fitness programs that incorporate weight training into the routines because I know how well it works. Check out Shanda’s results!

I chose Body Beast because I wanted to lose weight, but I also wanted to have some muscle definition. I was able to achieve both. Body Beast got me in the best shape of my life!”

Body Beast workouts are perfect for men and women who want to get back in shape by using the fantastic benefits of weight training, want to lose their gut without doing crazy cardio, or like the idea of building a physique they can be proud of. This one is definitely going in my fitness library!

My Weight Loss Cleanse 3 Day Refresh Review

This is my weight loss cleanse 3 Day Refresh story. I have to be honest. Lately I’ve strayed from my usual healthy habits.

My family came for a week long visit and we all ate out too much and had too many sweets. Sweets are my downfall! I didn’t want to lose all of the progress I had made in the last year. I couldn’t let those 15 pounds creep back on. I had to do something! Enter the 3 Day Refresh by Beachbody.

The 3 Day Refresh is a totally healthy cleanse which is designed to break those bad eating habits while cleansing and detoxifying your system. As a bonus, you can lose 1 to 5 lbs. or more.

This is not a fast or juice cleanse. If that were the case, I never would have tried it. I have to eat! This is a safe, healthy weight loss cleanse, 3 day plan that includes REAL FOOD – fruits, veggies, and healthy fats. So, of course I had to try it. I made a video blog of each day of my cleanse. Check out my results!

3 Day Refresh – Day 1

Cleanse – Day 2 Update

Day 3 Final Results

I was so proud of myself for sticking to the program. I wasn’t hungry at all and I had plenty of energy to do my workouts. By the third day I felt lighter and I had so much energy. To top it off, I lost 2.5 lbs. Yes!

Fitness Workouts: Before You Begin

Fitness TipsOk. So you got your fitness workouts. Great! That’s your first step and it’s a BIG ONE! Congratulations! Now it’s time to put it in the DVD player and push play.

Wait! Before you do that, check out these helpful tips:

    READ. Before you do anything, read the fitness and nutrition guides. You have them for a reason. You’ll need to plan your shopping list, take your measurements and weight, and probably perform a fitness test — all before you start Day 1 of the program.

    Schedule a workout time. Know when you will definitely be able to do it each day. Some people exercise first thing in the morning so the day’s distractions will not interfere, others prefer afternoon or evening because they find it hard to get moving early In the day (that would be me). Figure out what’s best for you.

    DO the workout at the scheduled time and STICK TO IT! It takes about 21 days to develop a new habit. If you miss a day due to illness or some other reason beyond your control, it’s ok. Get right back in there the next day. You’re in this for the long haul and consistency is key.

    Wear good shoes. One type of shoe is not good for all workouts. For example, Tony Horton suggests a court shoe for P90X3 because of the side to side jumping.

    Think about your workout space. What type of surface/floor do you need to work on? Do you need a mat? Probably. If you have bad knees like I do, I suggest doing all of your jumping on a mat that’s about an inch thick. It reduces the impact on your feet and knees when you jump. It really helped me.

    Take it easy. The first time you do a workout don’t try to keep up with the trainers, no matter how competitive you are. You’ve never done these moves before or maybe you have, but not in this particular way or intensity level. You’ll have soreness over the next few days anyway. Don’t push so hard that it locks up your muscles so badly that you quit working out. You can’t do that. You just started!

I hope these tips help you get off to a good start with your new fitness workout. There are more to come!
