The All Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership

I am so excited to kick off the New Year with the Health Bet accountability group, but with the latest news about the ALL ACCESS on demand Challenge pack this New Year just got EVEN better! 


Just the other day I found an old hollywood video card and laughed!! It wasn't that long ago the VHS or DVD video store rentals was a usual weekend stop. Now Brian and I never have to leave home with Netflix or even movie apps streamed right to our television. 


Well, because times are changing for fitness as well.  It is still the same process to getting healthy and feeling your best.  You have to put in the work to get the results and there is no quick fix.  But, there are now more options than ever to have access to the tools that can help you achieve the look and feel that you want!  Team Beachbody came into my life 5 years ago with a program called P90X by Tony.  Have you heard of it?  It seriously kicked my BUTT and it totally changed my life.  Every morning I would go pop in my DVD  and workout before work.  I learned how to eat clean through my coach and our challenge group.  I found support in other women that were struggling to lose weight.  I was forever changed because of the relationships built in that 90 days, my coach, P90X, Clean Eating and Shakeology.  I know that the model of Team Beachbody Challenge groups work!  I know that it is MY secret sauce and while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea it truly did and still does work for me.
I am thankful that Beachbody is innovate and is constantly thinking about how they can provide the utmost support & accountability to their customers and coaches.  I love that Beachbody didn’t dig in their heels and resist the change in times but instead embraced that our world is moving more digital and they have created this incredible Beachbody On Demand platform and all the programs that it includes for us to get results.  

 The Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack Membership which provides total access to every program available on Beachbody ON Demand, plus future releases.  So that means that every single program Beachbody has ever created from P90X, Turbofire, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer to new ones like Cize, T25, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer and Chisel, Insanity Max 30, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, Core De Force and more are on a digital library you can access plus anything new that Beachbody releases you get INSTANT access at no additional charge for an entire 12 months.  That is incredible!!!!  Starting on December 27th you will be able to purchase either an annual membership or the Annual All Access Beachbody On Demand + Shakeology Challenge Pack.  This is an incredible opportunity for me to help you get even better results.

WHY is this so Awesome?
So I’m going to give you my personal opinion on the new feature. I love the All Access Challenge Pack because it gives you:
  • 1 Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included, plus future releases.
  • Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on home direct)
  • Portion Fix (includes 7 piece portion control container system, eating guide, large blue container and shaker cup)
  • Business Starter Kit Waived if you choose the coach enrollment option.
  • You get all of this for $199 for the entire year  (12 months) and there is no monthly fee.



The points I listed above is worth thousands of dollars and for 12 months you are getting access to everything that Beachbody has ever created plus anything new through the year.  That is awesome but the real reason I am excited is this.  You can purchase this pass and together we can choose to start with for example, 21 Day Fix.  You can complete 21 Days of the program, at the end of the 21 days we can have a discussion around what program you are going to do next.  What your goals are, what you have already accomplished and how we can help to tweak your plan to get you results.  Maybe after the 21 day fix you decide you want to add in more cardio.  We can  move over to T25 or  Core De Force as the next program.  Or let’s say you have an injury that is preventing you from completing the 21 Day Fix, we can switch programs and move over to the 3 week yoga retreat until you are feeling well enough to go back to your T25 workout.  The key here is options that help YOU achieve YOUR goals.  We can mix, match, tweak and change your plan so that you do not lose steam, you do not get bored and YOU get the results that you want.


Each fitness program through BOD has the calendar of workouts and what to do when.  Each program has a nutrition guide you can download, tracking sheets and you have me to help walk you through the program to make sure you are getting the results that you want.  This is not about just starting and completing 1 program, it is about moving through each stage of your journey and entering into a lifestyle of proper nutrition and fitness.
I love this option because it gives you flexibility and creativity.  But the most important part of this whole thing is the SUPPORT!  Sure, anyone can just buy a program but where you see most people getting results is when they have a community of support around them helping them to get results! That is where the magic truly happens!
I used to be that girl that went to the gym, that bought the membership on January 1st and VOWED that this year would be the year I would make a change. I truly did have good intentions, but by the end of January I would find myself making excuses, eating food that I thought was "healthy" and frustrated with my results.  It doesn’t matter how awesome the gym membership is.  If you don’t know what to do when you get there, it is going to be wasted time and money for you.
So this year is your year!  If you are like me and you need structure, support, guidance and accountability then Beachbody might be your magic ticket.  I didn’t like working out in public, I enjoy my own home space, and I like that I can workout when it works for me!
I am inviting you to #1 take advantage of the All Access Pass and make me your coach!  Let me help you set some new goals to achieve your healthy and fulfilling life.  Whether you want to be a part of my accountability and support groups or not I am here to help.


I am kicking off my next group called The New Year, New  You HealthBet Group on January 4th through the Beachbody Challenge Tracker App.  You will set realistic and achievable goals, log your workouts, your nutrition and Shakeology daily through our app based program and I will be there 24/7 to provide support, accountability, guidance, recipes and meal planning to make this a lasting lifestyle change.  Does this sound like something you would like to do?

Crockpot Butternut Squash Soup



Crockpot Butternut Squash Soup


I got a TON of butternut squash on sale and it keeps really well here in PA if I just put it in a box in the garage, but I needed a easy meal and 
soup just goes perfect with a cold Pittsburgh day! 

Add fresh apple for a twist on a classic restaurant favorite you can make your own kitchen with the help of the slow cooker. 

For extra ease, buy peeled and pre-cut squash—or DIY if you have time!


Ingredients:

2
lb butternut squash, peeled and cubed (about 6 cups)
1
large apple, peeled, chopped 
1/2
cup chopped onion 
1
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) (I used red pepper flakes to make it spicy)
1 1/4
cups low-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton) 
3/4 cup Almond Milk mixed with & 1/3 cup butter melted (healthier -heavy whipping cream)


  • Make It: 
  • Step #1 Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add all ingredients except whipping cream.
  • Step #2 Cover; cook on High heat setting 4 to 5 hours.
  • Step #3  Pour half of the squash mixture into blender. Cool 5 minutes. Cover; blend until smooth. Pour into 8-cup measuring cup or large heatproof bowl. Repeat with remaining squash mixture. Return squash mixture to slow cooker. Stir in whipping cream.
  • Step #4 Cover; cook on High heat setting about 5 minutes or until heated through.

Happy Anniversary as a Beachbody Coach

As I sit here today I can not imagine my life without this business! It's crazy to think over the last five years how my life has been blessed as a beachbody coach.


Never did I think that a P90X purchase before my wedding and dusting it off and finally finding motivation to do it in a challenge group would lead me to this!


I have been able to change my health, my finances, my freedom and surround myself with some of the most motivating people I have ever met!

Brian and I have been able to take vacations without using a credit card, pay off debt, and set BIG goals together for our future!

Money, vacations, debt payoff… all that set aside, becoming a Beachbody Coach has given me a true passion. A real outlook on my life, and where I want to go and what I want to be.
I have learned so much about myself and others over the last five years. I have created relationships with my coaches and my challengers alike that are relationships that I can keep with me forever.



I have some of the most amazing friends in this business, and my coaches: Team Evolve, they are my family. There’s more to this business than the glitz, the glam, the money… it’s about life lasting relationships, finding your true passion, having freedom, living your life by your design, and reaching to help others and meet NEW people every single day. I am blessed to have this opportunity and this life.

Thank you Beachbody for creating a business platform like no other. 
 In celebration of my 5 year anniversary I am looking to personal mentor 5 people in a small group setting to teach you everything I know for your success as well.
If you would like to be considered for one of these spots apply below or email me sstakeley@hotmail.com 

I would love to show you how this business can change your life too!

Five Travel Friendly Healthy Habits



Five Travel Friendly Healthy Habits

If you are one of those that travel for work, living out of a suitcase and dining out most days, then you understand how difficult it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  While it’s not impossible, it can be challenging. By implementing a few travel friendly healthy habits, you can easily maintain your healthy lifestyle when you travel without a lot of stress.

  • Start your day early and get your workout in first. It will give you the boost you need for a long day ahead. Most hotels have gyms with treadmills and weight machines, but there may not be enough equipment for everyone wishing to use it. No worries, you can work out in your hotel room with a few resistance bands. They pack easily into any suitcase and take up very little room. If you are a Beachbody member, take advantage of Beachbody On Demand, the members only streaming workouts library.  You can do any of them in the comfort of your hotel room by logging in with your laptop.

  • Make healthy food choices while dining out. Restaurants are jumping on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon and offering what they can for healthy options. There are usually dinner salads available or order grilled chicken rather than fried.  You can always ask to switch out the rice or potatoes for an extra serving of veggies and ask to have the veggies steamed rather than sautéed. This will save on calories and oils you don’t need.  If you can, opt for a salad for lunch too, you will at least be getting a good serving of greens for the day.  Most importantly, skip the cheeseburger and fries.  I have some REALLY awesome tips for dining out, here.

  • Pack a healthy soy free meal replacement. Let’s face it, travelling and eating restaurant food can really mess up your system. You can’t always be certain that you are getting the nutrients you need or you that will be, ahem, regular. A meal replacement like Shakeology will help combat that. It replenishes the nutrients you need and helps with any digestive issues that may creep up. Most flavors are available in single serve pouches making it easy to take along with you. It’s a smart alternative to a heavy calorie laden breakfast.  You can shake it up in a blender bottle, or ask a barista at the hotel coffee shop to make it extra yummy with their blender.

  • If you find yourself at the bar with colleagues opt to skip the alcohol. First, alcohol is just a bunch of empty calories with no nutritional benefit. Second, alcohol can make you say and do crazy things that lead to all sorts of office stories and no one wants to be THAT GUY.  lol  A glass of unsweetened tea or water with lemon will do just fine.  Here are some great MOCTAIL recipes

  • End your day with a bit of meditation. It will help clear your mind and foster a great night’s sleep. Just taking five minutes will help you unwind and destress after a busy hectic day of meetings and presentations.
  • No matter how busy your travel schedule is these simple travel friendly healthy habits will help you to keep up your healthy lifestyle.
    Message me at SStakeley@hotmail.com and lets’ chat!  I’d love to help you find the right program for your travel needs or answer any questions you may have about Shakeology or  Beachbody On Demand.
