The time has come! Have you heard of the legendary Corbet’s Couloir? Check out the video below, but don’t let it scare you. You don’t have to do it! However, get ready to achieve complete bliss while churning up powder with every turn in the greatest ski mountain in the US. Welcome to the Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the Grand Tetons! Yes, you earned it!

It’s a little known fact that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is as great a place for learning to ski as it is for cruising, long intermediate groomers. Beginner and intermediate trails make up 50% of the terrain, meaning that the non-advanced/expert terrain acreage (1250 acres) is larger than many ski resorts’ total terrain. Yes, they’re known for the Aerial Tram and expert terrain, but that’s only half the story, with the Bridger Gondola and Apres Vous Quad accessing the mellow side of the mountain. You can find tons of local information at their website JacksonHole.com.

We’ll begin our days with Ted’s yoga class and/or an exercise class taught by Tony Horton, creator of P90X, then head to the mountain for a day of cutting tracks and exploring Jackson Hole! We will meet for some lunch and share stories of the morning. Then create more amazing memories in the afternoon!

Our hotel is a ski in/ski out hotels are located right at the base of the mountain. The hotel has been gracious enough to extend a big discount to our group. You have three lodging options to choose from: The Teton Mountain Lodge & SpaHotel Terra Jackson Hole, and The Inn at Jackson Hole. If all rooms are booked, you can still join our group and lodge anywhere else in Jackson with our “locals” option. Upon registration we will book your room at your chosen hotel based on availability.

All levels of skiers and yogis are welcome.

Welcome back to the 11 Laws of Nutrition, folks. Last time we discussed variety, the idea that we need to change up what we eat to suit our nutritional needs. Today, I’d like to discuss the exact opposite: When not to change things. In a word, consistency.

As is the case with consistency in exercise, consistency in nutrition means that positive change will occur when you do things right and do them regularly. Stopping and starting all the time will kill the momentum you need to succeed. You must find ways to stay in the game.

When it comes to food, quality needs to be the consistent factor. Keep the fruits and vegetables, the whole grains and the lean proteins coming. Every meal should support your goals and your overall lifestyle. The less you cheat on your diet, the less you suffer. A healthy breakfast doesn’t entitle you to a crappy lunch. Ate a healthy lunch? That doesn’t mean fluffernutters on white bread with a side of Fritos will make a good dinner.

The foods you eat directly affect your workouts. For example, B complex vitamins directly affect the way your body turns carbs, protein and fat into energy. If you skimp on them, your ability to blast workouts suffers. Electrolytes, like potassium, influence your fluid balance. Without them, you increase your chances of cramping up mid-Plyo X. Antioxidants like vitamins A, C, E and zinc help to repair the breakdown (or oxidation) our body experiences during rigorous exercise, not to mention during the general stresses of life. Without them, your body lurches out of balance and you become more susceptible to diseases like cancer.

Some of you may want to take the Jetsons route and get all your vitamins and minerals via a multivitamin in hopes that it’ll make up for all the junk you plan to eat for the rest of the day. I’m here to tell ya, supplementation is a beautiful thing, but unless it’s paired with a healthy eating plan, it doesn’t work. The garbage you find in the Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup, trans fat, processed sodium, corrosive additives and preservatives, and a host of other toxins. These things tear your insides apart, feed cancer cells and mess with your heart. That horse pill you took with breakfast might go to repairing some of the damage that junk causes, but it’s certainly not going to aid you beyond that. In other words, supplementation plus crappy diet is a zero-sum game at best.

Of course, I’m not asking you to turn into a dietary Dalai Lama. Every now and then, it’s OK to eat a little somethin’-somethin’ that satisfies your sweet or savory cravings. Sometimes, I’ll have a couple of dark-chocolate-covered almonds. Or if I’m having a big bowl of fresh berries, I might lubricate things with a spoonful of coconut ice cream. But these indulgences are the exception to the rule, and most of the time, the rule is consistency.

A reasonably healthy diet, done consistently, provides far better results than the occasional week spent eating like a saint. A lifestyle that includes primarily fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, good fats and lean proteins guarantees results.

Improvement and change occur when you do things often, whether it’s related to exercise, eating or everyday life. Consistency is the foundation of success.

From time to time I will post customer feedback on Tony Horton Kitchen. Here is one from Scott:

Quick update. Received my order this morning and started with garden vegetable stew.

Normally, I don’t write these types of letters but I coul

dn’t be more impressed. It was phenomenal and the portion size was perfect (I’m 6-4, 185).

After 15 straight months of shakeology dinners, it feels incredible to have real food back in my life. The variety is perfect, and I don’t have to put any thought into wondering if it’s good and/or healthy.

In two words, friggin’ awesome.

Because of my job, I’m a bit skeptical about things in general. This is just so incredible.

Between p90x, p90x2, shakeology and now THK, my life has changed so much for the better. Tony Horton over-delivers on everything he puts his name on. He doesn’t sugar-coat and explains the sacrifices/challenges you need to make to get results.

Just amazing.

To me, peace of mind over quality and the convenience of THK is worth the investment (I just can’t cook, it’s a disaster every time).

Hope this feedback helps.

Keep up the great work and sincere thanks.

Scott

A lot of folks are still struggling with two things – their health and financial situation. The health care crisis and the economy are huge issues in this country right now. When I started training folks in my 20s I thought it was necessary to pack people’s houses with equipment and drive 75 miles a day all over LA to train them one at a time. There’s an easier way to make money and help more people.

When I first started training people in the 80s I wasn’t certified. I never thought of myself as a trainer back then. More of a struggling actor who helped people get fit. I enjoyed reading everything I could on exercise science and nutrition but never took a test. Didn’t think I needed to. Clients got fit and not hurt, end of story. Not till I started working with Beachbody did I realize that certification was important.

If you’re in a situation right now where you feel like you want to make a difference in this world while making a living doing something you love then you might want to look into becoming P90X certified. As a P90X certified trainer you have the ability to solve the two things this country suffers from the most – Health Care and the Economy.

 

As a P90X certified trainer you have the knowledge and the credentials to build a business that is designed to help people get healthy. At first some folks post fliers and pass out business cards to invite people to train in their garage, a local school or park. Others see the real potential in this business opportunity and open P90X gyms. No more high maintenance treadmills, elliptical machines and hack squat machines – just an open space, some bands, dumbbells and pull-up bars.

You can point fingers and make excuses or you can begin to think outside of the box, move away from the traditional gym model and find a new way to find solutions for you, your family and the people in your community. This opportunity is just waiting for people who want to be part of solving two major crises in this country. If you’d like to take full advantage of P90X certification then go towww.P90XCertification.com NOW.
