Let's Make a Difference

Last year I was overweight and unhealthy, but I turned my life around and now I want to pay it forward. So I've decided to become a Beachbody Coach.

Why Beachbody?

It's simple. Insanity was the program that changed my life. In the year since then I've done a lot of research and tried different programs from various companies. Ultimately I've found that Beachbody has the best overall, well rounded solution to becoming healthy, changing your life, and staying there.

What does a coach do?

As a coach I will help you reach your health and fitness goals. We're here to help you figure out what tools and programs will help you reach your goals. When you do start a program we help you track your progress and stay motivated so that by the end you are a new person. After you finish a Challenge Pack we help you enter the Challenge Contest so you can get that free t-shirt you worked so hard for and a chance to win some money.

I've done a lot of research. I have learned about healthy diets, different exercise techniques and biohacking your body to meet your goals. So, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

What now?

I want to make a difference in other people lives and for now this is the best way that I know how. If you or someone you know would like help reaching your goals or if you have any specific questions please reach out to me by email at chris[at]cthayes[dot]com.

Here's a special St. Patricks day receipe. Sheperd's Pie is one of my favorite dishes and this Paleo version looks absolutely delicous. Now to just convince Mrs. Hayes to make it.

Personalized Health

As I've been talking to people about various aspects to health I've come to realize that health is a very personalized topic. Each person has their own background which influences how they perceive health. Past experiences and family situations often provide motivation for becoming or staying healthy. My dad was obese and died because of it. That has been a big source of motivation for me over the past year as I have been changing my life around.

Everyone has a different definition for what it means to be healthy. For a lot of people it's just being a certain weight. Some people just know they need moderate exercise a few times a week. Even a few push past being healthy and focus on performance. Sadly for a lot of people it hasn't become a priority, yet. I beg you, please make your health a priority, it can literally save your life and positively impact those around you.

When health finally does become a priority, everyone's path to health is different. I mentioned in my previous post that Insanity and a low carb diet was the main thing I used to lose a bunch of weight. While I think that's a great place to start for most people it might not be best for everyone. Optimizing a diet for each person is even more individualized. Perhaps you have a dairy or wheat sensitivity causing inflammation that you don't even know about. Maybe your gut bacteria is all out of whack and making you feel tired and sluggish. Or perhaps built up heavy metals in your body and you need to detox them out. The list goes on and on. The point is that everyone is different and you should experiment to see what is best for you.
