Beachbody Ultimate Reset: Complete Week 1 Review

Beachbody Ultimate Reset Week 1 | The Graues


If you’ve been “off track” with your health and fitness in the last 30 days you know it’s an awful feeling. Tired. Grumpy. Stressed. Overweight…BLAH.

There comes a point where you hit your I’ve had enough point.

That’s where I was a week or so before I started the Beachbody Ultimate Reset. My “I’ve had enough” moment came standing on the scale at my pre-op doctor’s visit when I saw the number 191 pounds. My first thought was to estimate the weight of my shoes and clothing, and then I double checked that my phone, keys and wallet weren’t in my pockets.

They were not.

But as I type this review of my week 1 experience I’m feeling much better. More relaxed, excited to begin exercising again and I’m waking up BEFORE my alarm.

Oh and I’m down 10 lbs. after the first seven days* dropping from 189 pounds to 179 pounds, which is freakin’ amazing.

But the reason I write this blog isn’t to talk about ME. It’s to help YOU.

Perhaps you’re reading this because you’re feeling now like I felt a short time ago. You have questions about the Ultimate Reset. You’re wondering if it’s something you can finish.  You’re curious if you could experience results similar to those you’ve seen, heard about or even read about on this page before.

You want to know what to expect, what the supplement regimen is like, what the food is like. And you want to know if it’s worth the investment of your time and money.

It absolutely is…but let’s dive in.


Beachbody Ultimate Reset Review | The Graues


What is the nutrition focus on week 1, the Reclaim phase?

The week 1 meal plan is a standard, healthy balanced plan that includes nuts, veggies (lots of greens), fresh fruit, healthy fats and oils, salmon, chicken, some grains and a few portions of dairy. But there is NO added, processed sugar, no caffeine, no red meat, pastas or alcohol.

The goal of week 1 is to begin the transition from a “pre-Ultimate Reset diet.” A diet that in many cases is high in UNhealthy fats, processed salts, calories, alcohol, starches and sugar and preservatives just to name a few. It’s a diet that over the last four decades has contributed to an obesity epidemic here in the USA, and abroad.

Just know that the food is great and it’s a meal plan can you could comfortable repeat moving forward and feel 100% satisfied with.

Beachbody on Demand: Top 10 Questions

Guess what’s EXPLODING?

Streaming Beachbody workouts through Beachbody on Demand.

Beachbody has been the leader in at home fitness for more than a decade and now Team Beachbody Club Members will not only be able to access TONS of great streaming Beachbody titles in their entirely at home, but also on the ROAD.

Do you workout at the gym, in your hotel room or in the hotel gym?

Heck, do you want to workout outside next to your pool?

Where ever you want to workout using Beachbody’s top, most popular fitness programs, including their latest releases…you can.

In this video (and in the Q and A points below) I wanted to take time to give YOU a Beachbody on Demand tour and update of all the content that is now streaming via Beachbody on Demand.

Check it out:

Can you see why we are PUMPED?

We also wanted to help explain the different sections you will find across the different ways to access Beachbody on Demand; be it through your iPhone app, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire stick, Chromecast or via your web browser.


What is Beachbody on Demand Premium Content?

Premium Content you see depends on the application on which you are using Beachbody on Demand. It’s a little confusing currently…but stick with me. 🙂

GENERALLY, it will consist of top rated, newer programs that are NOT available in full in the Member Library.  BUUUUUT, if you have purchased one of the listed programs (P90, CIZE, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, Country Heat, Body Beast) you will have FULL ACCESS to the streaming version of the program on any device you are accessing Beachbody on Demand.

BUT, ALL premium Team Beachbody Club Members will still be able to SAMPLE one of the workouts from the premium content list when they log in to their Team Beachbody Customer Account. Even if you have NOT purchased the program.

The plan is to roll out Beachbody on Demand “digital unlocks” for many programs featured as premium content. As I describe below, a Digitial Unlock is a digital only version of a workout program that you’ll retain access to so long as you continue as a Premium Team Beachbody Club Member. See below for more details on availability for the current digital unlocks.


What is the Beachbody on Demand Member Library?

All Premium Team Beachbody Club Members have unlimited access to stream a HUGE selection of Beachbody fitness programs. The fitness programs available to stream under the Member Library section currently include: Continue Reading →

SHOUTout time…one of my favorite things to do!

This past Sunday we put the finishing touches on another 30-day New Coach Camp…and Katy E. was SHINING BRIGHT throughout!

Katy recently completed her first round of 22 Minute Hard Corps while incorporating Shakeology…and she got AWESOME results.

She is now making a HUGE impact by hosting her OWN…and her FIRST, Beachbody Challenge Group while paying it forward in a big…BIG…BIIIIIIIG way by leading EIGHTEEN people!! 18!

Katy wears MANY hats…wife, mom to a 1 year old son, PE teacher and now Beachbody Coach (…and others for sure).

If you have SUMMER GOALS…and you know Katy, I recommend you connect with her about how you can join her team and/or enroll in her upcoming group that begins on Monday July 11th.

Please extend a BIG congrats on her awesome results AND more importantly for taking the step to PAY it forward for so many.


Diamond Rank Advancement – Brenda E.

Diamond Coach Beachbody

It’s a big day for Brenda E. and the awesome team SHE is growing and leading as she advanced to a DIAMOND Team Beachbody Coach.

I will always remember that my cousin Christine introduced me to Brenda and her husband Mark, and that they went on to join our team on my birthday a few years ago, and what a gift they have been to me. 🙂

During that time I’ve been grateful to learn from and be inspired by Brenda and watch how she manages to WORK at her dream and vision while prioritizing first being a wife and full time, present mom to 3 active teenage boys…who also commutes 90 miles round trip working full time outside of the home.

She’s open, honest and transparent about her journey….because she understands the value of that accountability for herself and the hope she gives others. She’s eager to learn and lead others. She’s a hard worker and someone of high integrity that I look forward to chatting with each week.

I couldn’t be happier for her to hit this milestone and we PAUSE to celebrate it while keeping our eye on the next one, too. 🙂
