BOD Spotlight #2- Streaming with Apple TV

The day has finally come where fitness fanatics can finally STREAM their Beachbody on Demand workouts with Apple TV!  This is a huge addition to already having the ability to stream BOD through Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast.   BOD Spotlight #2- Streaming with Apple TV   There are always a million and one tech questions that pop up whenever a new feature is released.  Here is the 411 on everything you need to know about streaming BOD with Apple TV!   Which models of Apple TV does Beachbody on Demand work with? NOT any of the old ones.  You do need the 4th generation (so the newest one) to be able to do it.  The new Apple TV is worth it, as it comes with a ton of new features like the ability to also stream Netflix, Hulu, HBO and anything you have in your itunes library!  (The 4th generation Apple Tv comes in a 32GB and a 64GB, both for under $200)    What if I have an older version of Apple TV, but I know how to use the ‘Airplay’ feature? Then you are still okay to stream your Beachbody on Demand workouts from your phone or computer through Airplay, just not on the ‘BOD App’ specifically!   How do I get my Beachbody on Demand on the Apple TV? Launch your Apple TV and go into the App Store.  Search: ‘Beachbody on Demand’ and you will see the app in the results.  Download.  You’ll next see a screen pop up with a URL and an activation code.

What is Beachbody Coaching?  The REAL Truth!

What is Beachbody Coaching? The REAL Truth!

Maybe you have heard of it, and maybe you haven’t, but Beachbody Coaching has been getting a TON of attention nation wide, even News coverage! So what is Beachbody Coaching and is it right for you?       This news story about being a Coach came out just a few days ago from Fox Houston.  They dig into what a Coaches work/personal life might look like, what type of person makes a good Coach, and answers some of the most asked questions like: “Do I have to be fit?”  or “How much can a Beachbody Coach make?” Best of all, the reports go over a key detail we tend to skip over sometimes.  That detail is the fact that MANY people become a Beachbody Coach just to hold themselves accountable to hit their OWN goals.  A Beachbody Coach enjoys a 25% discount on all the products, so it is the best way to get in shape at home for LESS! If you haven’t already watched the video I posted above, go back and do that now. It’s only 4 minutes and really does a better job than I do about summarizing Beachbody Coaching.  😉   A) A Beachbody Coach can be: – A person looking to skip the crowded gym and work out at home WHILE enjoying a 25% discount – A person looking to hit their own weight loss goals and be supported/held accountable along the way   B) However, a Beachbody Coach can also be: – A person who wants to share their OWN weight loss journey with others, and help support them with their goals....

6 Things You Need MORE Of Each Day!

6 Things You Need MORE Of Each Day!

Let’s get back to basics.  There are 6 things you need more of each day to strive for overall optimal health.     You already know what they are, but it’s all to easy for us to forget about them with our busy and hectic days.  The good news: you can start to make a change right now and start to see immediate results!  If you are constantly feeling fatigued, depressed, tired, cranky or having trouble concentrating, then you need to listen up!   1) Sleep When you were younger, you used to get a TON of sleep.  Why?  Your body was growing, you were running around the yard all day and you didn’t have adult responsibilities.  Somewhere along the line, you started to tell yourself a falsehood about how much sleep you need now that you are all grown up. Deadlines, long hours and stress are keeping us awake longer each night and it is taking a toll on our health. So how much sleep do you need as an adult?  You should always use the 8 hours as a great rule of thumb.  Stop telling yourself 6 hours is enough, it’s not. When you start depriving yourself of sleep night after night, you are left with a ‘sleep debt’ that needs to be repaid if you hope to function properly. If you have no time to catch the 8 hours your body deserves, then try and fit in a 20 to 30 minute nap mid day.  Napping is not for the lazy, it is for the healthy.  Just catching a few minutes of a sleep cycle will...
What Should I Have For Lunch?

What Should I Have For Lunch?

  Ah, Lunchtime.  The morning flies by and then, BAM, it’s time to take our lunch break.  If you are like most people these days, you are too busy to think about how to do lunch right and you end up settling for what is quick and easy.  The problem with quick and easy, is it USUALLY means unhealthy and void of any real nutrition.     But what if quick and easy COULD also mean healthy and nutritious?  So before you ask yourself ” What should I have for lunch? ” take a look at some of these ideas to maximize your meal!     Pre-cook The Weeks Lunch On Sunday Write down the 5 things you would LOVE to eat for lunch, and if possible, pre-cook them and freeze them for the upcoming week.  Yes it might take you 1 or 2 hours to do on your Sunday, but at least you have FULL control over your lunches for the next 5 days.  They will be super easy to grab in the morning and take with you!   Change It Up We tend to stray from our diet when we keep eating the same boring food!  Make sure you are changing it up from time to time so you are not getting sick of your fav healthy meals.  Swap out different colored veggies and fruits to keep you visually dialed into your lunch, as well as textures.  Mix up wraps, soups, salads, stews, sandwiches and shakes to keep it interesting!   Feel Full Longer Make sure your lunch is packing enough punch to get you through the...
