WHAT’S INCLUDED*?

Those who have purchased the My Best Body Training Program (gym) know the great depth of information and resources I pack into my guides – these lists barely skim the surface.

I put a ton of thought into my pricing. My goal is to share my workouts and personal training knowledge with as many people as possible, and in a way that allows you to keep what you purchase for future reference (i.e. eBook PDF). 

Think about this:

  • The average cost of a personal training session = $50/session
  • The average gym membership = $40/month
  • The average cost of a fitness app subscription = $20/month

For a one-time payment of $89.99 USD (until Oct. 30), you receive lifetime access to:

MY BEST BODY – HOME TRAINING PROGRAM (PDF)

  • 13 weeks of fun, safe and effective workouts that deliver proven results
  • Instructional photos demonstrating each exercise
  • Helpful overviews of each of the three program phases (Stabilization & Base Training, Strength Training, and Power Training) to help you get the most out of every workout
  • Weekly #mybrandofbeautiful pep talks from me – because fitness is about being strong on the inside, too!
  • Tips and tricks to improve your form and avoid injury
  • Weekly workout calendars to help you plan ahead and stay on track
  • Beginner and advanced options for many exercises/workouts – making this the perfect program for you, no matter where you’re starting!

MY BEST BODY – HOME RESOURCE GUIDE (BONUS PDF)

  • Full-Body Rehabilitation Sequence to follow on rest day and to use throughout the week as you wish as well as an overview on the benefits of stretching and foam rolling 
  • MBB Athlete Personal Record worksheet to help you keep track of your assessments and challenges
  • Warm-up guidance, including a list of dynamic stretches to work into your warm-up routine 
  • A chapter dedicated to form for common exercises like push-ups, hip hinges and bracing/hollow body
  • Heart rate & heart rate monitoring information, as well as what to expect when using a fitness tracker during My Best Body – Home 
  • Term glossary to help you understand common exercise terminology 
  • Exercise library providing step-by-step text instructions for each exercise in the program 

So, you get the picture … this is a GREAT deal. 

*Note that these are subject to change; HOWEVER, NOTHING LISTED ABOVE WILL BE CUT! I might just decide to add more. 🙂 


REQUIRED EQUIPMENT 

You will need a small amount of equipment to complete My Best Body – Home. In many cases, the weight options are interchangeable (e.g. You can do a skullcrusher with a barbell or dumbbells). 

When an exercise is described as “weighted,” feel free to choose whichever option you’d like. If a word in an exercise name is in parentheses, like “(banded),” it is optional. 

  • Dumbbells*: I recommend having a few sets to choose from, because the weight you lift varies from exercise to exercise.
  • Exercise mat
  • Exercise/stability ball: You should be able to sit on the ball with feet flat on the floor and knees comfortably making 90-degree angles.
  • Mini resistance bands: At least two – one with light resistance and one with heavy resistance.
  • Sturdy box, workout bench or jump box
  • Barbell*: I highly recommend investing in an adjustable barbell. In many cases, you can substitute dumbbells for a barbell, but there are some instances in which a barbell will be preferable. 
  • Kettlebell*
  • Jump rope
  • Interval timer: I use the free GymBoss interval timer app. 

*”Weighted” alternative

Over the last six months, the My Best Body Training Program has evolved from a simple fitness program into a transformational experience for both the body and mind. It has become so much more than I could have ever hoped, and I know you will benefit from this program as much as my trial participants have on the inside AND out.

From the beginning, my priorities have remained the same:

  1. To make a fun, challenging, effective AND accessible gym-based program
  2. To create a quality experience that gives you the tools to train for a variety of different goals – not just strength endurance, hypertrophy or fat loss 

As a massive THANK YOU! for all the love this past year as I brought this program to life, the My Best Body Training Program is just $50 from 12/5/16 –  1/15/17, when it will bump to regular pricing of $60.

NOTE: I am working on a discounted bundled package. If this becomes an option, it will be announced on 12/5.

I put a lot of thought into my pricing and believe these prices are very fair for what all you receive – the tools and knowledge to train and eat for your goals for 13 weeks and beyond. I have poured my heart into this program and know you will love it as much as I do!

#MBBtrial – Week 1/Phase 1 – Stabilization & Strength Endurance

I hope you’ve grabbed your free copy of my 3-week trial run of my upcoming program, My Best Body! If not, sign up here.

In the first week of the trial, you can expect your balance and coordination to be put to the test.

Before we get into MBB week 2/phase 2 (hypertrophy), It’s important to build muscular endurance and overall stabilization in your muscles, joints and ligaments. Your muscles need a solid foundation before they can grow. Without this solid foundation, you might experience injury. So this week, you will notice your internal stabilizers working in every workout as you lift weights in unstable situations (on one leg, seated on an exercise ball, etc.). In the full program, there are three weeks dedicated to this phase.

Don’t feel silly for trying something new and potentially out of your comfort zone. Take it slow. Practice a rep without weight at first to get a feel for it. Stay focused on the task at hand. Make every rep count.

I encourage all #MBBathletes to lift mindfully. If you aren’t seeing results from weight training, part of the reason could be that you are not engaging your muscles correctly. It’s not enough to just go through the motions. You need to make that mind-muscle connection! Visualize your muscles contracting and lengthening. Squeeze those muscles hard as you contract them, and take the eccentric portion of each rep (as you fight gravity or the weight), nice and slow.

You will notice I added (X:X:X) next to several exercises. I describe what this means in several places in the guide. For many exercises in MBB, I set specific tempos for your reps that often place a greater emphasis on the eccentric (fighting the force of the weight) phase. Sometimes the eccentric phase comes first in an exercise (like squats, push-ups and tricep dips), and other times it comes last (bicep curls). X:X:X will always be set up in this format: concentric / isometric / eccentric. This might sound overwhelming, but once you get started and think about what you’re doing, it’ll feel natural!

You will also notice there is no cardio in week 1 / phase 1, and that there are three rest days. This is intentional – to allow your muscles proper recovery time, to ensure your calories are going toward your muscles and not being burned off by cardio (I promise we will get to that later in the program!) and to prepare your body for the intensity of phases 2 and 3. I do recommend stretching, yoga and/or leisurely walks on these rest days to get up and moving.

I’ll be sharing videos, tips and tricks throughout the #MBBtrial period on my Instagram (a group started on Monday, Oct. 17 together – but you can really start it at any time!). Head on over to my page to learn ways to maximize the benefits of these workouts.

I hope you all are enjoying #MBBtrial and that it is getting you excited for the full program, which will be available for sale in November. I’m pouring my heart and soul into this project, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
