15 minutes of fame

Some of you may know this...
Rick has a co-worker named Dale. He has been doing Beachbody stuff for years. He was one of the first guys to be a coach. He talks about it at work ALL THE TIME. He has half of the staff at UVRMC coming to his house and doing P90X workouts. He has his own pilots license and flies to LA from time to time to work out with "Tony".
So, we've slowly joined the band wagon.
We pretty much love to get our butt kicked on a daily basis by Tony and the gang.
Recently we ordered Shakeology which is the Beachbody version of protein drink.
They contacted Dale a few months ago about being in a commercial for Shakeology. He mentioned that he had some friends/coworkers who were doing the program. So, they asked Rick if he would familiarize himself with the product enough that he could be in the commercial, answering questions and stuff. Rick thought it was worth the effort--they might even score him some free product.
So, after some phone calls to arrange scheduling and such, the Beachbody crew showed up at our house this afternoon for the big shoot.

I had to send Cole outside to ride his bike for an hour so that he didn't interrupt the interview. He didn't complain too much. They filmed for about 30 minutes. I'm sure they'll edit down to about 12 seconds. Can't wait to see it. As they were setting up, Summer whispered to me, "Do you think she knows Tony Horton?" So, I asked her if she knew Tony and she whips out her phone and calls him. Seriously. So, we chatted with Tony for a while on speaker phone. And he said, "Do your best and...." "Forget the rest!" about 5 times. I don't know why I think this is funny, but I do.

All in all it was an interesting end to an otherwise regular day. To see more about the program you can click the Shakeology image or the P90X image on the right--that's Tony in the picture.

BTW, Rick is a Beachbody coach. if you want to know more about Beachbody, P90X or Shakeology, call Rick. You can become a coach yourself in no time!! Coaches get 20% off the products. Rick has some samples if you are wondering about this Shakeology stuff. You can also checkout some of the P90X workouts, too.

Holy camolee that is sooooo coooool! :) And I"m cracking up that he said so many times his "Do you best and forget the rest" quote. And Dan's been 100% p90x man for the past 13 weeks and will be so jealous when I have him check out your post! :)

That is so cool. I love Tony, even though he kicks my butt. . . .You guys get to do fun things! And Rick is a coach.

Tia told me Hollywood was at your house yesterday and I was hoping you'd post on it. Awesome. I hope Rick gets a big team together and can make up his own inspiring slogan. Isn't that funny how people get all famous and forget how to talk normal? Biully Blank's whole team (and him) kept saying "24/7" at the end of everything they said. I ffelt lucky I knew what the freak that was.

I was wondering what all your facebook posts were about. I don't think 'm hard core enough to try that workout, but maybe someday.
