Beachbody Challenges: Transforming Lives, One Woman at a Time!

14 Feb

Loving others includes loving yourself!

I don’t know about you, but I started the New Year off with a bang. Most people tend to get excited about taking on a new goal: weight loss, spending more time with family, reducing debt; it’s part of the spirit of a new season.

This January, I decided to start fitness challenge groups! What better way to get Beachbody workouts combined with group momentum and excitement to get healthy, than a good old-fashioned challenge?

Christina’s Beachbody Challenge Details

Who: Anyone who wanted to sign up!

What: A challenge to take back your life in 30 days! Exercise & Nutrition!

Where: Online accountability through Beachbody site and Facebook, checking-in and communicating daily!

When: Started January 2012

Why: There are lots of people on a Mission – being a coach allows me to encourage those missions on a deeper level. I’m so encouraged by each of these participants, it’s hard to choose just 3. I had to have you meet them! Here are some of their stories.

FEATURED PARTICIPANTS

Cheryl G. Beachbody Challenge

Cheryl G.

Hi! I’m Cheryl a 37 year old, stay at home mother to 3 kids (a 4-year-old and 6-year-old twins.) No C-sections for me! “I know Christina through a local mom’s group and our daughters are in Kindergarten together.”

Her Goal – Lose a few pounds and stay motivated to exercise consistently.

Biggest Struggle: “Exercising! My reason? It’s hard to find the time to do it.” I hear her on this! Being a mom can be demanding and fitting a workout into your schedule tends to take a back seat.

Favorite Beachbody Workout: I love Insanity! I like the quick pace and the variety of the workouts by Shaun T.

Mom Wisdom: “Schedule your workout! I do mine first thing in the morning, because I know as the day goes on, I probably will find some excuse not to do it.”

Join our team & get healthy!

Jocelyn C. Beachbody Challenge

Jocelyn C.

A 25 year old work-a-holic, who has 2 high stress jobs, works anywhere between 50-70 hours per week. Jocelyn has every excuse to be tired!  I met Jocelyn about 2 years ago when my sister Shell and Jocelyn graduated from the Oakland Police academy together.

Biggest Struggle: She refers to herself as being a picky eater who loves fruits and veggies, loves to exercise and goes to the gym. You might question WHY she’s in one of my challenge groups. While she eats well and exercises, her mid-section is admittedly her toughest area to keep in shape. Jocelyn tells me, “Oh boy, some days it just feels like a losing battle.”

Favorite Tools: “I love Chocolate Shakeology!! It has increased my energy levels 100%. I use to drink (2) cups of coffee before I left the house, 1 on my way into work, and have a few cups after getting there. By lunch, I’d switch to diet soda and would have 2 a day!” As her coach, I’m proud to say as of January 13 (her start date on Shakeology) she has stopped drinking pop and coffee. Go Jocelyn!

Words of Wisdom: Jocelyn says she is pushed by the group challenge to have accountability with others.  “This year is about being accountable to myself… It has never mattered to me. It’s always been how I feel inside and out when I look in the mirror.”

Be part of my accountability and success!

Kiersten M. Beachbody Challenge

Kiersten M.

Meet Kiersten! A 29 years old mother of 2 – and a double c-section survivor! She holds a full-time desk job where she sits a majority of her day.  I met Kiersten through her sister’s referral and am so excited she is on my challenge team!

Her Goal – Lose weight and gain some extra energy to keep up with her kids.

Biggest Struggle: Portion control and finding the time to exercise everyday!

Beachbody Favorite:  So far she rants about Shakeology and TurboFire! “I’m in LOVE!”

Inspiration for Others: “Set your goals and stop making excuses. Chose a work out that you enjoy that way you wont dread doing it everyday.”

We would love for you to join us – It’s FREE!

C-Section Survivors: Turn Flab into Fabulous Abs

3 Feb

Greetings fellow mamas out there!  I know what you’re thinking right now. You’re dreaming about bikini-ready washboard abs that you once called your stomach.  Are you screaming at the computer, “I want my abs back!”?  I hear you and I know exactly how you feel!

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO ON C-Section to 6-Pack

This isn’t just about c-sections ladies; I’m talking to any woman who has gone through a pregnancy. Bellies tend to look a lot like deflated balloons that got in a fight and lost! Never fear, your 6-pack is near!

Who Am I?

My name is Christina Volk; I’m a Fitness Coach, Independent Beachbody Coach, a proud mommy of 2 girls, and a wife to an amazing husband.  I have a B.S. degree in Exercise Science, which is great, but unless I apply it to my own life and share my knowledge with others, it truly does me no good. Lots of people promise results, but who better to take your hand and walk with you through this journey than someone who has actually done it? I’ve had the flab, the gut, the mommy pudge (you can see below!) and now I have my 6-pack, the best abs I’ve ever had. Now, I’m returning the favor and helping moms just like you achieve their healthy lifestyle goals.

[before & after]

 I’m talking to you moms!

Got Questions?

We all do! Here are some common ones I get I all the time from my clients. 

Q: I barely eat anything all day. Why can’t I lose weight?

A: That’s the problem, you need to eat and do so quite frequently. It’s called “Grazing”. The concept is to eat small healthy meals/snack every 2-3 hours which will train the body to burn more calories and create a BOOMING metabolism. Not eating causes your body to go into a starvation response which will actually cause the metabolism to slow and store the calories. 

Q: Won’t lifting heavy weights make me look like a guy?

A: MYTH. A woman’s body lacks the testosterone that a man has therefore we cannot build muscle mass like they can.  Muscle burns fat. The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn. In addition a female will have a smaller size and still be able to weigh more than another woman because muscle is much more dense. Like the saying goes “Lift like a guy, look like a Godess.”

Q: Is there something I can eat that is quick and good for me?

A: If you have a blender, ice, water, 5 minutes, and Shakeology the answer is ABSOLUTELY and it tastes great!  Shakeology is a complete meal replacement shake. It supplies the body with vitamins, nutrients, digestive enzymens, probiotics, is low in sugar and 150 calories (chocolate).

Where Do You Start?

Sign me up for a 6-pack you say? Great! I’d love to help. There is no monetary commitment, but there is a commitment on your part.  A commitment to get fit and healthy again. Want to contact me?

P90x2: Are you ready to bring it AGAIN?

1 Sep

Tony Horton is back in your living room for round 2! The highly anticipated and eagerly awaited follow-up program to the best-selling home fitness program P90x is finally here…P90x2.

P90x2 is a 90 day cutting edge fitness program that takes the methods of muscle confusion to a new level. P90x2 is not a cardio program as much as it will focus on strength, balance, mobility and explosive power. It has been developed by a world-class team of fitness experts to demonstrate the most modern thinking in sports science. This thinking is what makes P90x2 unique. It combines functional training, strength training, plyometrics and Post-Activation Potentiation (P.A.P) all into one program.

P90x2 is broken down into 3 phases; Foundation, Strength, Performance.   Base program consists of 12 intense workouts

  • Plyocide
  • X2 Recovery + Mobility
  • X2 Total Body
  • X2 Yoga
  • X2 Balance + Power
  • Chest + Back + Shoulders
  • X2 Shoulders + Arms
  • Base + Back
  • PAP Lower
  • PAP Upper
  • X2 Ab Ripper
  • X2 Core
  • Vsculpt *
  • X2 Chest + Shoulder + tri *

(*denotes advanced workouts included in the Deluxe, Ultimate, or Advanced kits)

How do you know if P90x2 is right for you?

P90x2 is ideal for Power 90 and P90x graduates. It’s also appropriate for grads of other “extreme” Beachbody programs like Insanity, Insanity the Asylum, TurboFire, and Chalean Extreme. In addition to the grads, P90x2 is a great training tool for athletes looking to improve performance or former athletes wanting to get back in the game (maybe not literally in a game, but look and feel like you still got it).

If you are ready to bring it…AGAIN then you will be happy to read that you can pre-order your copy of P90x2 from a coach starting September 1, 2011!

Pre-orders are being accepted Sept.1-5, 2011 only through a coach or teambeachbody.com. Coaches and their customers will have first dibs at pre-ordering. If you do not already have an account on teambeachbody.com you need to create one.  Click this link to create an account and I will be your assigned coach. If you already have an account then you are all set!

Order your copy of P90x2 from your coach (or me if you don’t have a coach) and you will also receive 2 free DVD workouts as well as free shipping and handling. THAT’S not all…you will be entered into a drawing to win weekly prizes and a chance to have Mr. Tony Horton deliver your copy of P90x2 personally! Understand that pre-ordering during September 1-5 will be the only way to assure arrival of product by December 25, 2011. Orders placed after this date will most likely not arrive until after the new year.

I wanna win!

23 Feb

The 30 day challenged link to this post changed 2011 for me. Now she has turned it into a contest and I love a challenge. Register for this 30 day program and help yourself be better and help me win a 1 hour phone call with Chalene!

I will definitely explain more later.  Briefly this program helped me recognize what I wanted, what I wanted most and how to get it.  But it also help me understand what is important to me.  I am thankful everyday since I completed this program that I have learned to balance priorities vs. goals.
