Emerald Team Beachbody coach providing motivation, encouragement, and information to help you reach your health and fitness goals.
As an Emerald Team Beachbody coach my goal is to provide people with the support and motivation that they need to adhere to their fitness and nutrition programs. I have a wealth of practical and academic training in these areas. I focus on at home Beachbody programs like P90X, Insanity, Asylum, TurboFire, Les Mills Combat, etc. I have done all these programs and achieved great results. I also include many integrated training and HIIT programs that can be done at home with minimal equipment. My goal is to help others achieve great results through sharing my knowledge and experience. Motivation and accountability are also a key areas of focus because that is the element that many people need most. I maintain a very active community of folks through Facebook groups and message boards. I feel getting involved in an online community greatly increases consistency and results.

Sometimes I'm guilty of skipping a workout and claim its because I am so busy at work. Well I'm not going to let that happen anymore...neither should you.
I started a Facebook challenge group based on planking. I ran across this image that highlights why. Please feel free to join us https://www.facebook.com/groups/toms.plank/

My wife and I tried the new Chocolate Shakeology formula and LOVED it. Now you get all the health, fitness, and weight loss benefits in a shake that tastes like a milkshake. Giddy up!! Let me know if you want more information on it and/or a sample.
We want everyone to feel the benefits of Shakeology! We hope this free gift serves as a warm welcome to the Shakeology community and encouragement to get in shape for the new year!
Saw this on Twitter (@TomAbner) and thought I'd share it here. Its a benefit of Shakeology that you may not have considered. One that I found was that it nearly eliminated my allergies. My theory for the allergies is that it cause a general reduction in inflammation. http://youtu.be/CchI9IV3b_g
Need some Monday Motivation? Have you ever tried to squeeze into clothes that no longer fit you? Don't let that happen.
Its Monday and if you're like me you may be dragging a little bit. Push through and CRUSH the day folks. Progress requires action!
This is so true!! Even the folks that workout religiously often say they struggle with nutrition. Its the hardest part. I credit Shakeology for eliminating my cravings.
It's sad, but true. So drink Shakeology 1st thing in the morning and it will help you eat right all day long!
If you're going to do it...do it all the way. Crank up the intensity in your workouts!!
The new Shakeology formula is GREAT. Let me know if you'd like to give it a try.
