Chicken nuggets are notoriously one of the worst kids foods... and I will admit I am very guilty of letting Aubrey eat them! It is something she will actually eat, it is convient and inexpensive... but I did have mom guilt... So tah-dah Clean Chicken Nuggets... I can happily say these are "Aubrey Approved"

LES MILLS COMBAT PREVIEW

 

What makes LES MILLS COMBAT so exciting?

  •  LES MILLS COMBAT is the first home-based mixed martial arts–inspired workout program designed to get you a lean, chiseled body—in just 60 days!
  • Trainers Dan Cohen and Rachael Newsham are incredibly fun to work out with! As experts in a great number of martial arts disciplines, they will teach you, challenge you, inspire you, and keep you accountable in your quest to unleash your inner warrior—and build an outrageously strong, sexy body.
  • All of these fat-burning, strength-building martial arts sequences have been carefully choreographed to some of today’s most popular, energizing music—motivating you through the highs and lows of the workout, and driving you to achieve your absolute best results!

 How do you start the program? Do you have to be in great shape?

Erin Traill, Diamond Beachbody Coach, Les Mills Combat, warrior, mixed martial arts, transformation, before and afters, success story, weight loss, fit momLES MILLS COMBAT is designed to work for people of all fitness levels, and also can be used as an excellent complement to any other workout program. A 30-minute Basics DVD is included that provides instruction on how to perform each of the 6 martial arts disciplines used in the program. Additionally, the Stay With the Fight Fitness Guide includes three workout calendars, so you can tailor your program to your own individual needs.

Why is LES MILLS COMBAT so effective?

The secret to the program’s proven results is Fast Twitch Integration Training. LES MILLS COMBAT works your fast-twitch muscle fibers—the ones with the greatest capacity for change—like crazy. It’s a breakthrough fusion of the most dynamic moves from karate, tae kwon do, boxing, muay thai/kickboxing, capoeira, and jiu-jitsu, arranged in explosive, escalating patterns—all designed to help you burn massive amounts of calories, amp up your strength, and maximize your lean-muscle definition, fast.
 

Who should do this program?

    Erin Traill, Diamond Beachbody Coach, Les Mills Combat, warrior, mixed martial arts, transformation, before and afters, success story, weight loss, fit mom
  • Men and women who are inspired by mixed martial arts.
  • Those at a beginning fitness level looking to enjoy fun, energetic moves that ramp up their cardio, burn off their fat, and lean out their muscles.
  • Moderately athletic people who wish to take their bodies to the next level.
  • Extremely fit people who want to power beyond their limits, burn away their last few pounds, and get totally shredded in 60 days.
 

 

Challenge yourself with Combat Gloves... why??

  •  By forcing you to contract and engage all the muscles in your forearms, biceps, and triceps, you get more from each workout.
  • Improves focus on where your hands and arms are, so you can punch  harder, strike with more force, and build that lean, defined body even  faster.

Les Mills Pump

Erin Traill, Diamond beachbody coach, weight loss, transformation, weight loss success, success story, les mills pump, before and afters, bodypump, in home workout, fit mom

Worldwide phenomenon LES MILLS PUMP is here! It's the first-ever at-home version of BODYPUMP—the incredibly popular series of gym classes created by Les Mills International and taught in 80 countries across the globe.  I love this program - it is fun and challenging and I can see huge changes especially in my arms, shoulders and legs!


 What makes LES MILLS PUMP so exciting?

  • Beachbody® and Les Mills International teamed up specifically to bring to the world the best trainers, the best chart-topping music, and the best body-changing PUMP moves, so the same results can now be achieved at home that millions of people get in gyms every day. 
  • Done three times a week, this barbell-based rapid weight loss and accelerated strength-training program reshapes a person's entire body extremely fast! 

Why is LES MILLS PUMP so effective?

    Erin Traill, Diamond beachbody coach, weight loss, transformation, weight loss success, success story, les mills pump, before and afters, bodypump, in home workout, fit mom
  • It's all about THE REP EFFECT. Unlike traditional strength workouts, which feature heavy weights that bulk people up, this program features light-to- moderate weights used at a higher rate of repetition.
  • The constantly changing tempo, body position, and speed of THE REP EFFECT breaks down more fat reserves, targets more muscle fibers, and burns more calories than traditional weight training. 

What are the workouts like?

  • Muscles reach fatigue by performing 70-100 repetitions per body part. That's about 4 times more reps than one would typically perform in a standard gym workout.  

Do people really have to work out only 3 times a week? If they want, can they work out on other days too?

  • I encourage anyone to engage in non-resistance training workouts (such as cardio or cross-training) on days that they're not doing LES MILLS PUMP. 

Who should do this program?

  • People of all ages and fitness levels 
  • Men and women who want to lose weight and get fit
  • People who want leaner, stronger muscles
  • Those new to working out
  • Women who are afraid of getting bulky from lifting weights
  • Fans of BODYPUMP gym classes who like to work out at home
  • People who want to try something new
  • People who do other Beachbody programs, such as: P90X®, RevAbs®, TurboFire®, 10-Minute Trainer®, and INSANITY®  
  • Weightlifters who want to improve muscular endurance 

What's included in the LES MILLS PUMP kit?

Affording Shakeology on a Tight Mommy Budget

Erin Traill, diamond beachbody coach, Shakeology, budget, weight loss, support, finances, nutrition, fit mom, affording a healthy lifestyle


When I first started my journey at the end of March and my coach suggested Shakeology, I knew it was what I needed to help me reach my weight loss goals but I had no idea how I would ever afford it.... Like most mom's I keep my household on a tight budget and between diapers, formula, and all the snacks that a 4 year old loves - I found myself unsure how I was going to make this work, but I really wanted to add Shakeology, so I had to make it happen...

As many of you know, I started with a T25 challenge pack - which means it was the T25 program and a 30 day supply of Shakeology.... I signed up as a coach so I could get a discount if I decided to continue drinking the shakes (knocked about 30 dollars off the monthly cost!)

But with a new baby that needed formula, diapers, wipes, ect - how would I ever be able to add this to my budget too???

 

Well this is how...

    Erin Traill, diamond beachbody coach, Shakeology, budget, weight loss, support, finances, nutrition, fit mom, affording a healthy lifestyle
  • I started couponing, watching ads and buying off brand... I am a name brand kinda girl, but I learned through trial and error what I could buy off brand. I watched ads for sales and I cut coupons.
  • I stopped buying bottle water and paper products for daily use - yes I still use it for company, picnics or on the go.
  • I stopped drinking fancy fruit smoothies  - lets face it they are just full of sugar anyways!
  • I stopped eating out as often - as a busy mom, I would be running around and go to a drive thru, or cafĂ© for a quick meal (I still fight this urge, as I am not a fan of cooking haha)
  • I stopped buying snack foods and juices - it was hard for my preschooler at first, she was used to having her juice and salty snacks - but very quickly she adjusted and replaced them with healthy snacks!
  • I was able to cut out my daily vitamins!
  • Packing a lunch - when we would go to the zoo, park, amusement park, ect I would always buy lunch for myself and my 4 year old - well not only is that very pricey, but it is very unhealthy so I started packing lunches which was a great way to save money and calories!
  • I switched to a cheaper hair salon - I found sometimes you really are just paying for the name, love my new hair girl!
  • Bought an in-home pedicure set instead of paying for pricey pedicures - pedicures are pricey and kinda gross if you really think about it.. love my in home set, it even lasts longer!

Do I think it is worth it?

Of course! I believe Shakeology was the change-agent I needed to succeed and stick to the programs. It increases my energy (not easy with a baby), decreases my cravings (not an easy task either - as a former cereal and ice cream addict), it is SUPER CONVENIENT (could not be more convenient and easy!), and it fuels my body with antioxidants and super foods!

I do not miss a day!

So after 30 days of P90, you're leaner and more solid; after 60 days, you're seeing muscles you've never noticed before; and by Day 90 you can finally have that lean, strong body you could once only dream about.
