Feeling good, my why and a good deal
**Scroll down for info on the All-Access Beachbody On Demand info!
I have a career-job, that I love. But after my Mom passed, I started taking care of me in a different way. Gone were the days of wanting to workout and exercise to just be skinny. Something shifted.
I'd get up every morning, after having put out my workout clothes + shoes + sports bra + socks and I'd mindlessly put a DVD in the player and exercise around for 25-30 minutes at a time. Every morning I'd watch the sun come up and I slowly... healed.
*Note: If ever I forgot to put my workout clothes out, I considered that an excuse to go back to bed. Seriously.
So, I got up every morning to heal. It definitely wasn't because I wanted to work out.
For the first time in my life, I just wanted to take care of me. I wanted to get stronger. And, I figured that if I could get stronger physically, then maybe I'd get stronger emotionally, too.
During those 25 minutes spent with Shaun T doing T25, I wasn't crying. I wasn't grieving. I was healing. I was concentrating and I was focusing. I was getting lost in sweat and movement. And even today, I consider exercise to be my therapy.
Fast-forward to today. It's 3 years later and I'm stronger than I've ever been. I actually eat vegetables more than once a day and I enjoy them. I have more energy and I live by the 80/20 rule. I do what I should do 80% of the time and then my forward momentum isn't ruined the other 20% of the time. Like on Christmas when I consumed about 9 cookies.
I've managed to keep off the "last 10 lbs" and I've changed my relationship with food. There is no guilt associated with food. There is only mindfulness. Who has time to beat yourself up for decisions you've made? Not this lady. Through all of this, I have been honored to run monthly accountability groups for the past year and a half. In these groups I get to motivate, encourage and offer a forum for women (and men) to make lifestyle changes.
My next group starts on January 9th and I would LOVE to have you. Just leave a message, or email me. You can even check it out here.
Anywho, there is some BIG NEWS in the world of Beachbody and I'm writing this post for all of those interested in the new ALL ACCESS BEACHBODY ON DEMAND offers.
Q: What is Beachbody On Demand?
A: Well, it's basically Netflix for workout programs. Up until the 27th of December, you would buy a program on DVD (or as a digital unlock) and it would appear on your Beachbody On Demand (BOD) subscription. NOW? You can become a member or upgrade your membership to get every program ever made by Beachbody and any program that will come out in 2017.
One time fee. Access to $6000 worth of programs. All streamable from your phone, computer, smart TV, apple TV and roku.
This is huge.
Q. Do you use BOD? Or, are you trying to get me to buy something I don't use?
A. I haven't used my DVDs in at least a year. I ONLY use BOD. I stream BOD to my apple TV. In Ohio, when we're at our house there, I use it on our Roku. I also have BOD on my phone and iPad when I travel. I kind of love it.
I take it to the gym with me.
Q. How much was BOD? Am I really getting a deal?
A. BOD was and is free for 30 for the first 30 days. Before you would pay a quarterly fee of $39 for a total of about $160 per year.
Now, BOD is $99 a year and you get access to everything. EVERYONE should be upgrading or joining.
Workout at home. Have access to everything.
Q. What else do I get when I do this?
A. You also get access to the eating programs, workout schedules and all helpful PDFs that go with the programs.
Q. Is BOD compatible with my apple watch?
A. Totally. You can even watch how many calories you're burning and your heart rate on your computer or TV screen as you're working out. (So cool.)
Q. How do I do get access to everything?
A. Easy. Figure out who you are below:
I am a new customer:
Option 1 - Get a one-year membership and all-access to Beachbody On Demand (every program that Beachbody has ever made, or will make in 2017) + a shakeology supply for 30 days (your choice of flavor) + the Portion Fix containers (7-piece color coded containers that helped me figure out how to eat right) for $199.00
Option 2 - Get a one-year membership and all-access to Beachbody on Demand for $99.95.
I am a quarterly BOD member:
You can enroll in all-access BOD super easily at a reduced price just by visiting www.AllAccessBOD.com. Your cost will be $61.08 and it will be back-dated to the date of your last quarterly payment. That means, no more quarterly costs! And, you can renew a year later for $99, if you so choose. (Congrats, you just went from paying about $160 a year to $99 and you will now have access to EVERYTHING in the Beachbody library, including any newly released programs in 2017.)
I am an annual / semi-annual BOD member without All-Access:
No worries, your current BOD membership will be refunded pro-rata for the unused months of your current subscription, and then you'll be enrolled in the All-Access membership. You'll pay just $99.95 for the year and have year-long access to all current programs and any newly released programs in 2017.
I don't fit any of these categories:
Email or message me and we'll figure it out! kyleeATtwopretzels.com. (Just change that "AT" to @.)
Q: What programs are included in this whole thing?
A: ALL of them! The 21 Day Fix, The 21 Day Fix Extreme, Body Beast, Country Heat, Core de Force (MY NEW FAVORITE), 22-Minute Hard Corps, PiYo, 3-Week Yoga Retreat, Insanity, Insanity Max 30, T25, Hammer & Chisel... even Beachbody exlusive workouts. The list goes on and on. It's more than $6000 worth of workout programs.
Q: What else is on Beachbody On Demand?
A. The Fixate cooking channel, plus all of the program guides and workout calendars and even some hybrid workout calendars are available as PDFs - super easy to print off. You can even chose workouts by trainer and by body part that you're targeting.
I specifically like the "Challenge De Jour." Each week, Beachbody curates a week-long collection of workouts for you to do for the week.
Q. Do All-Access members get a 10% discount on Team Beachbody purchases?
A. Yep! That means when you're an All Access Beachbody member you will henceforth receive 10% off of shakeology and all Beachbody stuff!
Q. How soon is content available after purchasing the All-Access membership?
A. It should be available within 24-48 hours of purchasing.
Q. How soon is content available after upgrading to the All-Access membership?
A. All-Access content should be available within 5 business days of upgrading.
Q. When does this offer expire?
A. February 28, 2017.
