Dinner With Tony Horton

As I sat on my Southwest flight from Oakland to LA yesterday, I could only smile and think to myself– “I am doing the right thing with Team Pure Athlete!”

I will expand on that further in this post.

I was returning from an event called Sports Spectacular, a yearly event to raise money for Cedars-Sinai’s Medical Genetics Institute.  This world renowned research and multi-disciplinary outpatient center for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of all forms of hereditary disorders and birth defects affecting fetuses, newborns, children, adolescents and adults brings elite athletes and celebrities together for a great cause.

With David Beckham as the man of the hour, athlete after athlete got on stage to talk about how this organization has impacted their family.  From ex-Raider Todd Christensen talking about his son Teren having spina bifida, to former NBA clutch man Robert Horry telling the story of how his daughter was given 18 years of life because of the advances of this organization–it was a powerful evening.

Me, Tony Horton and my buddy Chris throwing up the X

While all this was going on, I had the pleasure of sitting next to someone who has changed my life over the past 5 years–Tony Horton!

I work out on my television every day with Tony H. and he has not only whipped me into shape with P90x and P90x2, but millions across the globe.

I was excited to say the least when he sat directly next me (thanks to some fine detail work by my buddy Chris) and we instantly started chatting.

We talked about everything from P90x2, to my upcoming nuptials, to who makes a better custom suit:  Vietnam or Italy.  We had an absolute blast sharing stories and talking hoops.

I could write 2,000 words about dinner alone, but what I really want to do is talk about the powerful and lasting impression Tony H. made on me and thousands in attendance.

What you see is what you get with Tony H.  Countless people, including professional athletes, lined up to express their gratitude for all he has done to change their lives.

I witnessed a 20 minute conversation between he and Teren Christensen, who is paralyzed from the waist down due to spina bifida, on how they can put a program together to help get him in shape and moving–bringing a tear to Teren’s eye.  Pretty powerful stuff.

It was truly remarkable not only to see the amount of people in this ballroom that Tony H. had influenced, but how he took time to individually talk to each one of them, hear their story and encourage them to keep pushing play.  His enthusiasm is contagious as adoring fans smiled from ear to ear while making an X for the camera.

You can see the passion in every word that comes out of his mouth and that he truly cares about every single person that has bought one of his P90x DVD sets.

So bringing it back to the the comment I made earlier, “I am doing the right thing with Team Pure Athlete!”

What is “that thing” I am referring to?

Helping people get healthy and fit.  Helping educate people on proper nutrition and the importance of exercise.  Motivating people to do things that they never thought possible.  Helping end the trend of obesity.  Helping re-install confidence and make a difference in people’s lives.

Although Pure Athlete Fitness is new to the Beachbody community, the amount of people it has helped and influenced in 4 months is pretty remarkable.  My goal is to get 1,000 people moving and grooving and making that life change–whether it be to lose weight, get fit or become elite–we are promoting health and fitness and a better way of life.

Although Tony Horton may never read this post, I want to thank him for taking the time to get to know me, to ask questions and to help reinforce that helping others is the most gratifying and rewarding profession there is.  Bring it!

Coach Tony- Checking In

Hey Team Pure Athlete,

I hope everyone is having a great week and seeing continued success with your Beachbody programs and Shakeology.

1)  I’ve created a group on Facebook to keep our team dialed in and to provide a forum to ask questions and seek motivation.  This is not a Challenge Group, just a closed group of those on Team Pure Athlete to stay connected.  I highly recommend that if you haven’t joined, that you request to be added:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/teampureathlete/

2)  I’ve just completed P90x2 and I can’t wait for some of you to finish your challenges and try this awesome program for your next round.  I sent in my before and afters and I am being considered to be featured on the infomercial!  Fingers crossed.  I’ve also just finished my transformation video to show how awesome these programs really are and the type of results you can get if you just follow the plan laid out:  

3)  If you’d like to know more about the Team Pure Athlete Challenge Groups, I’ve created a page exclusively with information on how to get involved.  Since many of you are already doing a program, it’s as easy as letting me know you want to take the challenge and I can add you.  Again, it’s a great way to have the support and accountability needed to complete your program  www.pureathletefitness.com/challenges

4)  Have you tried Shakeology?  Have you considered ordering but want to try it first?  If you are serious about purchasing Shakeology if you like the taste, I will be happy to send you a sample.  Most people think it’s too expensive to take every day.  It really comes down to value.

At only $4 per day for a meal replacement packed with 70+ vitamins and antioxidents, you won’t find a more valuable product on the market.  Add this to your programs and see how much faster you reach your goals.  Substitute your Starbucks or Jamba Juice and put the healthiest ingredients in the world into your body.  http://pureathletefitness.com/free-shakeology-sample

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow Pure Athlete Fitness!

2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, www.pureathletefitness.com, or by logging in to www.teambeachbody.com to do your shopping (If you buy from the plain Beach body site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!

What is this new PAP talked about in P90X2?

PAP stands for post-activation-potentiation. It came from Russian schools focused on athlete training. In a nut-shell, essentially, when doing a weighted resistance exercise prior to an explosive move, one can increase the amount of power produced by conditioned individuals. The last part is key.. you will need to be conditioned before this will work for you. So the 2 new PAP workouts are not even introduced until the 3rd phase of the program!
