IntelliRoll Foam Roller Review

intelliroll-fullFirst off…. give me a week or so to get a video review up. I want to show you a few tricks that you can do with the IntelliRoll  that I cannot with my other foam rollers. Yes… I have more then one 😉 They all serve a purpose, but since I have literally fallen in love with the IntelliRoll over the weekend I wanted to get this review up since a bunch of you were asking.

I first saw the IntelliRoll in last months issue of Muscle & Fitness.  Great magazine by the way. You can literally have a new program every month and the year subscription costs like $25!! I was really interested in how it was shaped and since I foam roll quite often I wanted to give it a try.

So I pulled out the old credit card and ordered it on Wednesday afternoon and got it Saturday morning! My wife actually opened it and was like… “oh wow look at this thing!”

Firm or Flex?

  • When I was actually ordering I saw they had 2 types… the FIRM or FLEX and I was not sure which one to order. I Googled to see if I could find some reviews about each type, but there wasn’t much. In the end I gabbed the FIRM as you can see from the picture.
  • Why? Well basically I have been foam rolling for a long time and I know how to do it and I am more used to it.  The FIRM is well… pretty FIRM as for the FLEX I do not know, but it says it is a bit softer. If you are new to foam rolling or don’t like “PAIN” 😉 hehe I would say go for the FLEX
  • If you have never foam rolled before it can be intense. Sure there are times where I will sit on the floor and roll while watching tv which helps loosen you up, but when I really dig in, foam rolling can be a workout in itself, but man you loosen up for sure!

Neck Issues

  • My neck  is a mess! I had a herniated C5 about 5 years back and although I am pretty active with working out and doing Spartan Races, I spend a lot of time on the computer which is brutal on the neck! I am actually going to make the IntelliRoll part of my “5 minute breaks” I take during time on the computer to stretch and move around.
  • So you can plainly see the channel right in the middle that is for your neck and spine. I was a bit skeptical at first, just for the fact that I am SKEPTICAL in general.
  • Literally the first thing I did with this was line  my neck and roll myself back
    • FIRST thing…. take it slow. You can end up putting a lot of weight on this if you try to go fast. So just take it slow and roll/hold it. You ever try to put all your weight on your spine on a flat foam roller? Ouch!
    • As soon as I started rolling I heard some cracking! Now I am a CRACKER. Everything on me cracks. That is not the worst thing in the world if things crack somewhat naturally, but ballistically cracking like when you snap your next is really not the best… but yes I DO IT! Ugh I do that a lot. Not so good.
    • Anyways back to the intelli roll. It felt good rolling my spine up that. I gotta say it loosened me up and just kind of aligned me.  I spent a few minutes just rolling and holding up and down my spine, but like I said go slow and get a good feel for your positioning.
  • AWESOME: So the one thing I like to do a lot with my other rollers is just lie on it with the back of my neck and watch TV. Just slowly roll my neck side to side. I find with the channel and the curved sections it is actually a bit more comfortably and allows me to loosen it up a bit more. On my straight roller the flatness of it just starts to hurt the longer I am there. Hope that makes sense….

Normal Forward/Backward Rolling & Side To Side

Variety Is The Spice Of Life!

  • You can obviously tell there are many variations of use with intelli-roll and that is what really makes it different!
  • You can see in the picture my leg fits right in there and with the curve it kind of cups the leg which is good. You can’t really get that with a FLAT foam roller, but flat rollers do some awesome stuff too!
  • You can see the edges are flat…. maybe it could have been a bit wider on the edges to get more muscle on the flat surface, but it does allow you to really pin point a trigger point and work it out. You can see me leveraging the flat edge in the image below.

Arms, Legs, Neck, Forearms:

  • Sometimes people forget that foam rolling is not just for legs. You can hit it all with a foam roller. If you have never rolled out your triceps, biceps, or forearms then you have to give it a try!
  • The channel in the middle lets you work your triceps and forearms really nicely.
  • Like I said I will get a video review up, since I haven’t even had the chance to really dig into this roller.

Side Calf Release…. ah….

Focusing On A Trigger Point

  • Like I said above, the edge could be a bit wider, but where the curve meets the flat part, it gives more leverage then your typical flat roller so it lets me really dig into the side calf… I think its called the “peroneus longus” but that is a real pain point I have and rolling it is magically… yet painful 😉
  • You can see how I can leverage the side of my calf where the curve meets the flat part. With a regular flat roller is is pretty much impossible because you actually have to try and use the outer edge of the roller and there is no leverage and your calf slips off.




Yeah that’s my cats feet in the top right! LOL


So if I was in the market for a new Foam Roller then the IntelliRoll would be the one I would buy, since it really has multiple functions.  When I ordered they were having a sale “$49” plus FREE shipping. If you use the code FDC you can get an extra %10 off, so pretty sweet deal! I paid like $80 for my rumble roller which is great, but does not compare to the IntelliRoll.  Go ahead and CLICK HERE >>>> to check out the IR FIRM Roller and be sure to go the learn section and see the videos they have showing all the ways to use it. Pretty cool!

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. I will try to follow up and get that video up with me actually using it and showing you some tips!

Rickson Gracie – History, Training, & Diet


Over the years I have become a big fan of MMA, BJJ, and the UFC which really brought this all to the beast it is today. I was into it more many years ago, and something I would love to actually get involved with sometime in the future.

I had always heard the Gracie name so I looked into the family. I admired Ricksons’s outlook on life, working out and diet, so figured I would put that info out here.

Rickson Gracie was born in November 1958, Brazil. He is an 8th degree black and red Gracie Jiu Jitsu, a well known form of Jiu Jitsu created by the Gracie family and inherited by the Gracie family. It is a form of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu first developed by Helio and Carlos Gracie who are well known for their contribution into the modern BJJ. Rickson Gracie started his Jiu Jitsu training when he was very young. He started competing in the age of six and by 15 he was teaching it to other people. By the age of 20, Gracie won his first ever victory against the famed Rei Zulu, a 230 pound brawler from Brazil. This earned him international fame which made him become as the top most recognized freestyle fighter.

Gracie has now retired from professional Jiu Jitsu and MMA but he still contributed his experience and knowledge to young people who want to learn Jiu Jitsu. He gives away many seminars on Jiu Jitsu trying to live his father’s legacy. He believes that Jiu Jitsu is not a tool to fight, but it is a social tool that gives confidence to those who are physically weak and want to protect themselves. He teaches people Jiu Jitsu so they can defend themselves against any form of violence.

Throughout his career, Gracie has appeared in 11 fights and has won them all. He has also been a part of a very well known documentary by Robert Goodman. The documentary followed the life of Rickson and two other popular fighters who prepared for Tokyo’s Vale Tudo in 1995. Rickson Gracie has also taken cameo roles in Hollywood movies. His most noted appearance was in ‘The Incredible Hulk’ by Marvel where he played the instructor of Bruce Banner.

The Rickson Gracie Workout and Diet Routine

  • Rickson has always believed in two kinds of training: one he uses to maintain his physical form and one is to prepare him for his fights. When he is preparing for a fight, he increases the intensity of his workouts by two folds and extends his rest periods so he can recover fully and give his max performance.
  • Rickson Gracie rarely lift weights. He only lift weights when he is preparing for a fight. But most of his workout is based on a very intense full body routine. His workout is based on the popular MMA workout which not only teaches one to fight, but it also teaches one to balance his/her life through all aspects.

The key secret behind his training is his diet. Rickson doesn’t follow a diet where he has to restrict food or eat specific stuff. He only follows the rules of digestion so he can avoid fermentation, a process that can cause digestion to produce unwanted results and cause the body to release acidic reactions that destroys the nutrition.
He has set up a group of foods he consumes carefully. Here is what Rickson Gracie follows to keep himself maintained.

The Strict Rules of Gracie Diet

Food groups

  • Group 1 – Vegetables, fats and proteins (oils, nuts, meat, fish and vegetables)
  • Group 2 – Carbs (Carbohydrates) (pasta, rice, bread, grains)
  • Group 3 – Sweet fruits and fresh cheese. Sugars and artificial sweeteners
  • Group 4 – Acidic fruits like citrus and berries. Sour dairy products like yogurt
  • Group 5 – Sweet dairy products.

According to Gracie, you must be very careful when eating two things from a different pool of foods. He shows some examples below:

  • Anything from group 1 can be combined with group 2 and eaten together. You can only pick one thing from each group.
  • Group 3 can also be combined with Group 2, but you cannot eat foods from 3 groups together. So you cannot combine group 1 with 2 and 3.
  • Group 2 can never be combined with anything from the same group. But they can be combined with group 1 and 3.
  • Group 4 cannot combine with each other or any other group from the list. They must always be eaten without combination.
  • Group 5 can combine with any group from the list except Group 1.

Now for example, if you are eating a Banana, you can’t eat it with bread. So if you are eating a banana, you cannot eat bread at all.

So there you have it! Pretty interesting dude! I have actually seen a handful of MMA guys follow this diet pretty closely and they have had great results!

Hope you enjoyed. Leave a comment or a question below.

Basic FAQ For New Coaches

Have you recently joined the Beachbody Coaching Program? If you are new to the program, you probably have a lot of questions that need to be answered. This little FAQ was written to help new coaches understand how the system works when you press that signup button.

Anyone who joins the program starts it as an Inactive member. There is no need to panic; it is an automated system that will be updated later. However, if you purchased a starter kit during your signup process, then you appear as Active as soon as the system updates itself. The Beachbody system updates itself nearly every Wednesday night. This is a weekly check up to see if the coaches were able to sell at least 50 personal volume points (PV). The system detects all your points in the last 35 or so days. Each product is assigned PV points and you can look at them through the Coach’s office or on the Beachbody online store page when you are logged in as a member.

What are PVs?

  • Personal Volume points are points that represent the money you have to pay. Each point is equal to a dollar. So for example, if you are buying anything that is priced at $30, you will have spent 30 PVs. Similarly if someone you recommend buys through your account, you earn the PVs for the money they spend. Anything sold through your account or your links or banners through your website will bring you points. You can also buy yourself to add points and later on collect money from your friends or family who purchased the products.
  • Whenever you reach 50 PV during the start, the system will automatically update your status as Active. If you outperformed, you will also earn a coach status which is described in another article. Just keep in mind that the system updates only on Wednesday, so do not panic if you sold a lot and still see yourself as an inactive member.

What is being inactive means for you?

You are still a coach even with an inactive member status. But this also means that you are not performing well in the program. If you fail to sell a number of products or programs in a given time, your status will go inactive. Being inactive does not mean that you will be kicked out of the program or won’t be able to make any commission. Being inactive really actually means that you are not performing too well in convincing people to get a new lifestyle.

Inactivity isn’t important if you just hopped on the train to get 25% discount from all Beachbody products. But if you hope to make extra cash through the coaching system, then you absolutely have to worry about being inactive. The best way to boost your business is to start with smaller products from Beachbody which are really easy to sell. From there on you can bring people to other products such as the P90X.

How important is being Active?

  • Being active is very important if you hope to make extra money through obtaining higher ranks in the system. When you reach new ranks, only then you can make more money and become a diamond coach. There are many coach ranks within the system that benefit you a lot every time a team member sells something. For more information on ranks, read our article on Beachbody Coach ranks. Make sure that you remember to make at least 50 PV in 35 days when you gain a coach status. If you do not make that much, you will automatically be dropped from the emerald or diamond rank. This doesn’t kill your business but is still a drawback in the earnings. This is why it is suggested to keep a team of coaches rather than work alone in this business. After all the more people you have the easier it will be to make more PVs and stay in your rank.
  • Achieving higher ranks isn’t as tough as most people put it up. In fact becoming an emerald coach is easier than you think. Sometimes becoming an emerald coach takes no more than a few weeks. As soon as you start reaching new ranks you will see yourself making mounds of cash and your business will flourish. When you have made enough, you will be allowed to join the Customer Lead Program, which puts customers your way nearly every day. These customers come from the wild, but when they purchase from Beachbody, they are automatically assigned to you as potential returning customers. From there on you keep them updated and whenever they decide to buy again, you will earn rewards.

So becoming an emerald really puts you in the limelight as it makes you become eligible for the customer lead program. You also start earning team cycle bonus which keeps expanding with more people that join your team.

How to qualify for a Customer Lead Program?

There are certain things that should be met before you become eligible for the customer lead program:

  1. You must have at least Emerald Rank
  2. You must have a bio and a before/after picture of yourself on your profile page.
  3. You have to be a club member of Beachbody. This is to ensure that you have enough knowledge about all that Beachbody has to offer.

What happens to my team if my recruits are only there for the discount?

  • It is quite understandable that a lot of people are not interested in online marketing. That is why Beachbody has given them a great option to become a coach and still reap benefits. Once someone signs up to be a coach, he/she immediately starts availing 25% discounts on numerous products from Beachbody. If they wish, they can endorse products by Beachbody and make commission on sales.
  • Even during my first few months as a coach, I only joined to use discounts. After I achieved results from using numerous products from Beachbody, I was approached by many of my friends and family who showed interest in what I had done to achieve such a transformation. I managed to grab their attention naturally, pulling them towards Beachbody and realizing that it was quite easy to grab the attention of people when you could show them results. So even if your friend or family member joined in your team just to avail discounts, it may turn into your favor in the future when they realize that endorsing Beachbody products is a natural process as they move towards their transformation.

Is having your immediate family joining the program beneficial for you?

  • Yes! Having at least two immediate family members in your team can be quite beneficial for you and for them. If you allow your spouse or children to join your team, they will be the ones who will benefit the greatest from the hard work you pull. It works a bit like this; the first two people you add in your team become the core founding members of your coaching team. The people you or they add will become the part of your and their organization, giving you massive bonuses.

The first two people you add must become emerald coaches to avail benefits from your hard work. If they are at least emerald, they will cash on the team efforts that you helped construct. Even if they do not endorse or work for your team as you would expect them to, you are still at a benefit. As long as they help you build a team, you will gradually get bonuses. It definitely doesn’t put you in a bad spot for having someone who doesn’t work like you want them to. But if they do start taking interest, which comes naturally from using the products, you will have an opportunity to double your passive income.

What are the major benefits of having active family members in your coach team?

  1. If you add in two family members, you become emerald. Getting support from your family is easy. This makes becoming an emerald coach extremely easy.
  2. If your family members also become emerald, you are just a few steps away from being Diamond coach. From there on you can also help them get the diamond status to massively boost your team cash-ins.
  3. Having a family member as a coach on your team benefits you in a way because you can always send the sales you make to their account. This gives them points to remain active in the business. As long as they are active, you will keep making money from team cycles. So if you are getting at least 50 PVs each month easily, you should be sharing your sales with the family members to significantly boost your team effort and earnings.
  4. You can help your spouse or family member remain active and reach emerald rank. Once you have two emerald ranks under you, you and your family members will be given a chance to qualify for Customer Lead Program. You will keep getting the team bonuses plus a check every month to cash in for two accounts collecting members through the Customer Lead Program. Getting these two people to sign up for Customer Lead Program means that you will have an endless supply of customers to deal with each month.

What is the best way to endorse Beachbody products and programs?

  • Being a coach for Beachbody has made me realize that there really isn’t any effort needed as long as you put in effort to transform yourself. If you manage transform your body that changed your life forever, people around will you be curious and inspired. This all comes naturally and you can easily convince people to get a product or program that you yourself has tested and gained results from. You can also provide them helpful information and guidance to reach their own goals. From there on they will inspire their friends and family and the process goes on. The best bit is that as long as they are on your team, you keep getting benefits from your team efforts.

Beachbody coaching program is an extremely effective way of producing massive passive income. I have even seen people who have given up their regular jobs to pursue a career as a Beachbody coach. The entire business model is so natural that you can’t lose with it as long as you can inspire others. The best feeling of being a coach in the end is that you are holding yourself responsible for changing the lives of others. So you not only get cash in the end, but also the great feeling that you contributed in fixing up someone else’s life.

If you have already changed your life through the help of any Beachbody product or program, you should not hesitate to join the Beachbody coach program.

My Garage Gym

Have you ever wanted a gym in your own home, but thought it would cost you way too much money? You could spend $1,000’s or more on creating your home gym!

With 3 kids under 5, getting to the gym is not happening right now, so I needed to do something. The only space I have is the garage. Of course I do a lot of my Beachbody Workouts in the basement in front of the TV, but there is just something about have your own dedicated GYM Space!

So basically I wanted a few things in my home/garage gym…

  • I wanted a power rack to use for pull ups, squats, bench, shoulder presses etc…
  • I wanted padded floor with enough space to do yoga, Insanity, T25 etc…
  • I wanted a whiteboard and an are for my laptop/tv so I could follow along with workouts and/or watch something while on the treadmill.
  • I wanted a place where I could crank so music without waking up a child 😉

Power Rack

Padded Floor

  • I wanted a padded rubber floor to work on, not only for dropping weights, but for impact protection and being more comfortable. I almost grabbed these cheap ones at Home Depot, but as I was getting them the store manager told me he would give me 50% off the really good ones since they were just returned. I ended up dropping $100, but it is well worth it!

White Board, Music, Laptop ETC…

  • Having a whiteboard is cool… don’t ask me why, but it is 😉 It is nice to put up your WOD or whatever else tips or motivational quotes you want to get you going. As for the laptop, I will still being doing p90x3, insanity, focus T25 etc… so I need that to play them and of course for my WOD’s I want to crank some MUSIC!

Well there you have it! My garage gym is ready to go. I am sure I will be adding to it! Check out the video below. I love to hear comments so leave one below!

At Home Workouts

home workouts

Working Out At Home Is Easy

If you have done the gym memberships, the boot-camps, the “fill in workout here” and are finding that you just don’t have the time or the money then maybe an at home workout is just what the doctor ordered.

To be honest I did love going to the gym, to Crossfit, playing basketball etc… but when we had kids it got harder and harder. The time spent commuting there was better spent being with my family. That is not to say I will never go back to the gym or other outside activities, but for now home workouts are what works best for me.

Maybe you are intimidated by the gym or other boot-camp type classes. That is OK. Doing your workout at home gives you the freedom to go at your own pace, wear what you want, and not worry about what you think you look like doing some specific workout move.

If you think working out at home might be more up your alley then I am going to list a bunch of workouts I have done at home so  you can see exactly what you need and read my full reviews on them as well.

My Home Workout Reviews:

If you have any questions just leave a comment below.

Cardio & Weight Training In Your House?

  • The truth is you do not need a lot of equipment to get a great workout at home! Many exercise programs I review here only need about a 10 foot x 10 foot area and nothing else but your body.
  • Some will need weights, but you can buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells and train hard enough to make Arnold blush. 😉

Are These Workouts Only For Women?

  • What!!?? lol just kidding…
  • You are on a site that was created by a dad and does all his working out at home so in reality working out at home is for anyone men or women. Even my kids join in!
  • The truth is working out in your own house can be as simple as popping in a DVD or turning your garage into a gym like I did, but I used to just do most of these workouts right in the basement.

In the end it doesn’t really matter where you are working out as long as you are working out and changing your life for the better!


Beachbody Affiliate Program

So you have some internet marketing skills and you want to be a Beachbody Affiliate? Awesome. If you found this page then you know I might know a few things about affiliate marketing as well.

Basically Beachbody does not have a “typical affiliate program“, but what they do offer is much, much better.

Most affiliate programs will give you a commission of a product and that is it. Say you are selling “widgets”, your site is ranking great, you are making 2-3 sales a day. Nice right! Well you are making sales for the company you are an affiliate for. So after the sale that customer goes bye, bye and is now part of that company as a customer.

The great thing about Beachbody is you keep the customer and make %25 of whatever they buy and whatever they continue to buy.

Example of Beachbody Affiliates

  • Say you have a page on your site about P90X or Insanity. Somebody comes to the site and decides to buy the product. First off you make $30 from the sale and now you can see the customer in your Beachbody backend. All their information. You can email them even call them if you want. Now if they buy anything else in the future you get the commission! How awesome is that. On top of that, one of the best sellers is Shakeology which is a consumable so people buy it monthly. You also make $30 from that, so you can see if you build up Shakeology customers it can really add up. Also in most of the workouts they are always promoting Shakeology and other products as well so it truly is a win win.
  • So now instead of just getting a commission from a sale, you are getting a commission, a customer, and the ability to get future commissions from that customer.

Building a Team

  • So not only can you make commissions from the sale of Beachbody products, but you can also take advantage of the MLM “Mulit Level Marketing” aspect of the company. No Beachbody is not a Scam or some Pyramid scheme. Not at all. This aspect of the company allows you to build a team below you that will build itself and grow exponentially allowing you to make money from volume of your team. I go into more details here about how all that works
  • Do you see the power in this? Remember those customers that now belong to you? Well when they start using the products and seeing how awesome they are, they will want to tell others about them so you can see if they want to become a coach and build your team. So every customer is a potential coach that can grow the team.
  • FREE CUSTOMERS – When you become an Emerald rank, Beachbody gives you free customers. So far since March 2013 I have gotten 90 free customers. Pretty awesome. Basically Beachbody is spending over $100 million a year in advertising, infomercials etc… which you have probably seen. When somebody buys from TV those, the customers are handed off to coaches of the Emerald rank. You don’t get the commission, but you get them as a customer and if they purchase anything else the commission is yours. Pretty awesome… and… if you become emerald and make success clubs you will get Shakeology HD “Home Direct” leads which are people who have purchased shakeology and will get it every month and you will get a 25% commission from that! Awesome!

Change Your Affiliate Mindset

  • I have been in affiliate marketing for almost 8 years and wish I had started with something like this from the very start. I think about all the sales I have made and sure the money was good, but I lost all the potential for future growth by not keeping the customers. As of now after about 6 months of being a coach I have just over 350 customers in my system. That is 350 people I can email, call, and get in touch with to promote specials and other Beachbody opportunities.
  • My business and income is growing every month and it will continue to do so as long as I keep working at it. Change your 1 sale and gone mindset and give this a chance.

My Promise To You

  • Listen there is a reason why when you searched Beachbody Affiliate Program you found me. I have pretty good knowledge when it comes to this stuff and I want to be surrounded by like minded people that know about internet marketing as well. There is a lot of potential online and off for Beachbody sales so lets talk and make this happen! Use the contact form here or give me a ring at 973-981-4208 to talk. I can show you the best way to sign up and save a few $$ as well or you can click the link below to get started.

Different Levels of Beachbody Coaching

So basically in Beachbody there are 19 official rankings you can have. Every 7 days ranks and commissions are tallied up since weekly “active” status and rankings will determine the different bonuses.  Every Wednesday night at 12AM Eastern the system updates… I love Thursday mornings 😉 You can be “Active” or “Inactive” at any rank level. Basically active means you have at least 50 Personal Volume (PV) points within a bonus period (which is every 35 days). Every coach has 2 legs… A right leg and a left leg. The statuses and your bonus will be determined on what is happening in your different legs.

There are two legs for every coach including right and left leg. The status and bonus received by every coach is determined by what goes on in both the legs.

Upon joining the Beachbody coaching program, you become a coach. Becoming a coach allows you to earn 25% commission on the orders that are placed by the customers, while 15% commission is available on club member orders.

Moreover, you will also be able to earn 5 percent of weekly team cycle bonus amounts that are earned by the personally sponsored active Beachbody coaches under you.

Aside from the Emerald and Ruby status, there is also another status that you can become as a coach at Beachbody called Diamond. You can gain the diamond coach status if you have 6 added personally sponsored coaches (with an active status). The amount of money coaches with a diamond status earn is more than that of Emerald and Ruby. Diamond coaches make  between $22 to $25 in each team cycle bonus whereas the frequency of the cycles also widens for Diamond coaches (150 times a day). Moreover, as a Diamond coach, you will be able to earn 10 percent matching check bonus. There are different levels in Diamond coaches, from 1 star, 2 star, 3 star; all the way up to 15 star and more.

Listen if this all sounds confusing it is because it probably is to you. I know it was for me at first, but I got on numerous phone calls with my coach and he helped me figure it out. I want to help you figure it out. I am doing this business because it is working! Please CONTACT ME if you have any questions. My team is growing and learning everyday and I want you on the team!
