The Right Way vs. The Wrong Way

Follow Me on PinterestPin It

What’s the most part of getting the best results in the shortest period of time?  Getting a good start!  You have to know how to start so that you don’t find yourself behind the pack.  That’s what I want for all of you who are part of teamINTERNALLYFit and attempting to begin your journey to a healthy, fit body!

I created several categories that cover a variety of topics, such as Coach Greene’s Tips.  This category has my Youtube videos which give you details on what I eat and how I shop for healthy foods at local stores (not healthfood stores).  I also included a shopping list that you can click on the printer friendly version at the bottom of the page and take it with you to the store.  Also, I’ve included my Top 10 Must Haves for Health and Weight Loss.  There is a lot of good info  for those who are new to the workouts, new to teamINTERNALLYfit, or just needing to figure out where to start in order to get their fitness on track for reaching their maximum potential.  It’s easy to buy a workout program, but then what?  That’s why I’ve created so many different categories to help you get started right on your nutrition, your workouts and your new body.  So bookmark teamINTERNALLYfit  and refer to it when you need some direction!  I hope it will help both the newbies and the veterans who need a little boost.

Here’s how YOU can get started the right way ….


If you are reading this, CONGRATULATIONS! You have decided to take control of your health and fitness, and you are ready to get MAX results! I have learned a lot about how to get MAX results, I’m living proof of what MAX results look like, and I’ve helped many others to get MAX results of their own using many of Beachbody’s workout programs.

So, where should you begin?

1.) Choose a workout program and get a Coach!

You may have already done this. If so, great! Move on to step 2.  If not, be sure you make me your coach.  It’s free, doesn’t cost you a dime, and entitles you to be part of teamINTERNALLYfit so that we can help you every step of the way on your journey to reach your fitness goals. Do that by clicking the “Join Our Team” tab.

You may be trying to decide which program is for you. There is something for everyone. You can start with something like 10 minute trainer or Slim in 6. You can go for an extreme workout like P90X or Insanity. You can go for an absolutely INSANE workout program like P90X2 or Asylum. Or you can do something in between like Pump, Power 90, Chalean Extreme, or Turbo Fire. Look in the “programs” tab at the top of this website to learn all about the different options you have. And read these two articles as well = Something for Everyone and Why Workout At Home.

However, for those of you who like to get all your ducks in a row from the start, there is a way to SAVE MONEY by ordering a bundle that includes your fitness program, your supplements, and a VIP club membership, along with free shipping on everything, for a much reduced rate.  That is called a “Challenge Pack” — Read more about how to order your own Challenge Pack in the article Beachbody Challenge.

2.) Get the right equipment!

If you choose a workout program like Insanity or Turbo Fire, you won’t need anything except a way to play the DVD’s and something to wipe up all the sweat. With a workout program that involves resistance training (like P90X, Power 90, and Chalean Extreme), you’ll need some dumbbells or resistance bands. I personally prefer dumbbells, but I will use bands occasionally when I travel or just want to do something different. You’ll need an assortment of sizes since the exercises vary so much. On some exercises you can lift a lot of weight, and on others you’ll need very light weight. You can get an assortment of individual dumbbells or you can get a single set of adjustable dumbbells like those made by Bowflex or Powerblocks. For P90X you’ll need also need a pullup bar (or again you can use the bands to substitute). There are also lots of other nice pieces of equipment you might want to add (not necessary but nice to have), which you can look at by CLICKING HERE and it will take you to my beachbody page.  Just click on SHOP and then GEAR and EQUIPMENT.   My favs are the Chin Up Max and Power Stands.

3.) Write Everything Down!

I thought it was silly to take Day 1 pictures that I figured only my wife would ever see. Little did I know how much my body would change, and luckily I had those Day 1 pics as proof.  They were great motivation and being able to see my body transform every 30 days was incredible.  I’m glad I took those pics now!  Be sure you take good pictures, document your progress with photos, and take measurements along the way. Read this articles for tips = Measuring Body Fat

4.) Learn everything you can about nutrition.

The level of results you get is in DIRECT PROPORTION to the effort you put into the nutrition. So many people neglect this area.  But not us! Part of why I got such great results was that I paid such close attention to my nutrition. I was fanatical about it.  And while it may seem tedious to study up on it, it’s every bit as valuable as the workouts to giving you the transformation you are after. I’ve written TONS and TONS about nutrition, and I’ve cataloged the most important of those articles into a single resource, the Nutrition Tab on at the top of this page include: Healthy Eating Tips, My Diet and Recipes.  Take the time, read these, and give yourself the best chance at success! I can guarantee that if you’ll follow the nutrition approach I teach here, your results will be off the charts!


It’s so important to be part of a team when taking this journey. A team will help hold you accountable. A team will keep you motivated. You will become more passionate about your journey as you share it with others. That’s one of the best things about teamINTERNALLYfit — we provide each other with the support, encouragement, and kick in the rear that we all need sometimes. Read more about how to really PLUG in with these articles = Motivation? , Motivational Tips for Exercise and INTERESTED VS. COMMITTED.   These are just a few of the hundreds of articles I’ve posted.  And be sure to visit my facebook and twitter page: teaminternallyfit to engage with others.

6.) Understand, It’s not suppose to be easy!!

These workouts are HARD! Eating right is HARD! Breaking old habits is HARD! You won’t like it at first. You’ll be sore. You’ll be tired. You’ll feel like crap some days. Suck it up and push play! That’s the key! We all go through the same thing. Successful people push through and keep going. Quitters quit. You have to make the commitment that no matter how you feel, you will keep showing up and keep pushing yourself to improve! These articles shed the light on what you will go through and how to have your mind right = Looking for the Quick Fix, Struggling and FEAR 

7.) Set big, realistic goals and be the next big success story!!

I kept pushing myself every day, and got awesome results. If you’ll do the same, there is no reason you won’t do the same. Your road may look different than mine, but if you are taking steps every day to get yourself closer to your goal, I can guarantee that you will get there! People ask me when I started seeing results, or they get worried if they have ups and downs in their weight loss along the way. I’ve written about both of those topics = Great Results and Losing Weight and Keeping it Off.

But put all the doubts and fears aside, and set your goals BIG! Then have a single-minded focus on getting to those goals! Be Fanatical!
