Let’s be honest, I hate politics I always have.  I think that the 4-year presidential process is in fact the definition of insanity, (Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results).  However, I am fairly impressed that a candidate has been so public about his use of P90X on capital hill.  The positive message that this spreads echos what I personally having been saying for years in closed circles and now for months more publicly myself.

The bottom like is P90X worked for him.  The question though, is would it work for YOU?  That’s where I am here to help and make sure that all of you that know me don’t just run out, buy it online, do it for 2 weeks and quit because “It’s too hard”.  What I want people to remember is P90X is ONE program that Team Beachbody offers to people.  Yes I am a Team Beachbody Coach AND I am also P90X Certified.  That means I can help make sure that P90X is the right program for you.  It may or may not be, but my goal is to make sure people SUCCEED with the program they do chose.

Ryan’s P90X message is great, and I hope it gets people off the couch and thinking that if HE has time to find the hour a day…..then there is NO Excuses from anyone else.  I don’t know how busy a politician is, but what I do know is they travel….a lot.  So those people who think you cannot do it traveling, Ryan and I in fact are proof of that!  Don’t be fooled, P90X is HARD!  It takes work and commitment to get through the first 90 days and beyond.  It’s not something you just start doing without some guidance and help either.

So what is my point in this short note about P90X?  Simply that the message in the news about health and fitness is a welcome one.  At the same time please reach out to me if you are getting the itch yourself to do something.  I want to help make sure that P90X is the program for you, and maybe you need something less intense.  Lastly, what they have not mentioned is the workout alone will not do it.  You can do P90X for hours a day, but if you still eat junk…..it’s not going to get you to where you want to be.

Food for thought, many of you know I have been here talking about it for a while.  So Contact Me if you get the itch I can help make sure you are successful.  In fact I have gone from P90X to Body Beast as my change-up for the next 90 days, so remember there is more than one program that may work for you.  Yes, I may not like politics, but I am obsessed with fitness and leading a healthier life and helping others do the same.

Many people who have been following me know that my only other hobby besides work is Health and Fitness.  About a month ago I started reaching out through Twitter and a new blog site, Virtual Fitness, to help others get fit if they wanted to change-up their routines.  The interesting thing I have found is that many people in the VMware community and IT space can relate to my story.  Many of us travel for a living, we eat out all the time, and generally we are just not healthy.  A few years ago I decided to turn all that around using P90X, and recently P90X2.  I decided I wanted to share and help others in our industry do the same because I know how hard it can be.  So I decided to become with is known as a Team Beachbody Coach.

The response has been great so far!  We have one group of folks from literally around the world, Tim Gleed is in Australia, working together to do Virtual Fitness.  We are already looking to get additional groups together, and there is even talk of some vFitness activities for VMworld with Wade Holmes and a few others.  I did want to thank all those that have been jumping in from around the Virtualization community and the world.  It has made me feel like I am making a difference in people’s live’s above and beyond the technical expertise I bring to the community.  It is really cool to be able to take my own hobby and passion and bring it to others.  I can also say these folks have kept me motivated to do my own workouts!

If there is anyone else out there that is interested in joining any of our challenge groups, please ping me on twitter or read more about the rules of a challenge here.  Most of the posts in our little FaceBook group have been really funny as well.  Guys seem to have a rough day of coding or dealing with work and have just been taking it out on some workouts.  I think many would be surprised to see the current folks challenging themselves from the community.  Some are pretty well-known in the blogosphere and Twitter space.  All I know is it’s pretty cool to hear these guys talk about how they are continuing to get better each week.

In all my current work I know it is crazy to think that I have time to maintain yet another blog site or venture.  However, in just over a week my wife will be leaving her job to do what she loves.  She will be focussing full time on her new business called Julie Ann’s Quilting & More.  Now one can deduce that website is also another one that I happen to manage and run for her.  That my friends is NOT the new site I am speaking of.  I am referring to yet ANOTHER new one that I am launching called Virtual Fitness.

The reason my wife starting her business is important, because it has taking me to a place where I realize what one of my real passions happens to be.  Her’s is sewing and creating things from nothing and now she gets to do nothing but that.  I love what I do for VMware and that will never change.  Next to my good friend Duncan Epping I have the coolest job in the company working for the Center of Excellence.  My passion outside of work however has become health and fitness.  Specifically the Beachbody programs of P90X and P90X2 most recently.  Beachbody offers a unique opportunity for people to become “coaches” to help others meet their fitness goals.  I decided a few weeks ago that some of my off time will be spent doing just that.  I wrote an initial article about it but now it is taking shape.

This new site will be dedicated to helping people I have connected with reach their fitness goals.  I have seen already on Twitter many conversations about people wanting to get fit.  In this new site you will find my story, some really bad before photos as well as current photos.  I already have about five ideas for blog articles about how I managed to keep the program going even while traveling.  What I would invite readers of my technology blog to do is visit the new site.  It’s lean and mean which simple content that will continue to grow each night over the next few weeks.  If you already have a Beachbody coach you can always request to be changed to me if you know me.  If you do not have a coach you can join my team with a free login then decide for yourself if you want to become a healthier you.

I’m very excited to move into this new little venture, of course it will not replace my day job, this is just my passion outside of work and I want to share it with as many people that I can who want to join the fun.  You only live one life, so you need to not forget to do the things you love.

If you bought the P90X workout or some other Beachbody program or nutritional product through Beachbody, than you already have a Beachbody Coach assigned to you and may not even know it. As a Beachbody customer you are automatically assigned to a Beachbody Coach when you resgister.  It is your right as a customer to switch to a different Beachbody Coach if you decide you would like to. Your assigned Coach may have never reached out to you, or maybe they’re not returning your emails or phone calls. Regardless of the reason, Beachbody allows customers to switch to a different Coach pretty easily.

To change your Beachbody Coach, simply send an email to Beachbody at customerservice@TeamBeachbody.com and let them know that you would like to switch Coaches.  Give them your full name and your account log-in name so they can pull your information up. Also, give them the name of the Coach you would like to switch to and their User ID. That’s it! In a few days you will be switched over to your new Coach.

Alternatively, you could call the Beachbody Coach Relations Department at 1-800-240-0913 and they can make the switch over the phone. I think most people find emailing Beachbody easier since when calling you may be put on hold until someone is available to talk with you (it really depends on the call volume).

Of course, if you would like to have me as your Coach 🙂 than when calling or emailing Beachbody give them the following information for me: Chris Colotti, User ID-145042 or CColotti. I would truly be honored to be your Coach and will do what it takes to help you reach your health and fitness goals!

Lastly, if you didn’t buy P90X, Insanity, or other Beachbody program or nutritional product through Beachbody’s website than you still can sign up for a free account and have me as your Coach. Simply click on the following link to create an account with me as your coach–> Free Beachbody Account.  If you would like to become a coach yourself you can also do so By Clicking Here.

If you would like to purchase any Beachbody Products it would be great if you could do it through my online store, even if you are not going to sign-up for a free account.

Today I decided to try to spread the word about the programs that changed my outlook on health and fitness.  It started with P90X and has now moved on to P90X2.  What I can say is both of these changed my life for the good and I am excited to try to spread the word as a coach.  If anyone is currently doing and Beachbody workouts I would love to be your coach.  I am just starting out, but I think this is a cool new opportunity.  Not like I need anything else to do these days, but I believe in these workouts.

For many that know me they are aware that the turning point in my life was the year I proposed to my wife.  I was pushing 220 lbs, I was on medication for Asthma, acid reflux disease, eating out too much, and generally not feeling well.  I started just by changing my diet and getting my arms around portion control.  That alone helped me drop to 195 pounds with a little added physical work.  Then I found P90X and I was at first skeptical.  I for one did not use the diet program I followed my own food intake using other methods.  However the workouts killed me!  They kicked my butt more than anything else.  The hardest thing to do is to motivate yourself, but Tony Horton does a great job even on DVD.

I spent almost two years on this program and have maintained a healthy and happy 165 lbs to date.  I feel great, I enjoy life and doing new things that involve physical activity like biking and indoor rock climbing.  I would never have been able to do this before and I am in better shape today on my 38th birthday than I was at 18.  My latest challenge is taking on P90X2 and trying to take it to the next level.  The “Functional Fitness” this program offers is just awesome.  I have never had so much core work since my old high school wrestling days.

So on this 38th anniversary of my birth I also jump into trying to help others and giving back the gift of fitness.  I love the P90X programs and I hope others will too.  I invite those new to them or those even already doing them to add me as a coach, and let’s both take advantage of the support and benefits.
