E19: John Hays (Fitness Inside & Out)


John Hays is a Health & Fitness Coach, Photographer, and WordPress Expert helping people look good in every way possible. 
John Hays is a health & fitness coach utilizing products such as P90X, Insanity, T25 and other at home workout programs combined with daily dense nutrition with Shakeology and clean meal plans, along with mentoring people in focused daily support and accountability fitness challenge groups to help them see lasting impactful changes in their health & fitness. John is also a freelance photographer and web developer when desired projects come along. 
In early 2006 John’s mother passed away from complications during surgery removing a sarcoma cancer tumor after having battled with it for 2 years. During that time John gained weight from stress, and ended up going to a gym every day, losing 45lbs in about 2 months. John hit a plateau, however, and his cousin Jimmy Hays Nelson told him about Beachbody and P90X, how muscle confusion broke through plateaus, and the amazing results he (Jimmy) had seen losing 100lbs, so John signed up as a coach to get P90X and save 25%. He started using P90X and immediately saw more toning, higher energy, and fell in love with all the Beachbody fitness programs. 
In late 2008 John’s father passed away from sudden heart failure because of stress and not taking care of his fitness and nutrition. At that time John had been regularly using the Beachbody fitness programs and drinking Shakeology, the meal replacement health shake and feeling healthier every day. After his father’s death, John went to a cardiologist who performed multiple exams on his heart, ending in the diagnosis that as long as he continued doing what he was doing, he would beat his family’s genetics. 
After a period of grieving, in February 2010 John decided to devote the rest of his life to helping get the word out to people that there are healthier options out there that can still include good, tasty food and fun activities. He became more active as a Team Beachbody Coach, and has been coaching people ever since. 
In July 2011 John made a sudden decision to move to New York City to audition for the Hip Hop Abs Infomercial Test Group. He successfully made the test group and for the next 3 months he worked out with Shaun T live each morning, and was provided with focused nutrition each day. John lost 36lbs, 49% body fat and 5.5″ off his waist. It was an unbelievable experience that not only helped him get in the best shape of his life, but also helped him learn how to be an even better health & fitness coach. John can currently be seen in the Hip Hop Abs infomercial on television across the country. 
John has seen amazing transformations in the people he has helped, and he believes his parents are proud of the mission he’s put himself on. He hopes you find insightful, inspiring information and tasty healthy recipes on his website, and that he is able to help make your life better in some way! 
John has been a Team Beachbody Coach since April 2008, and is currently a Lifetime 3 Star Diamond Coach. 
John was recognized in 2010 as one of Beachbody’s Top 10 most effective coaches utilizing social media to grow their business. 
John was in the Hip Hop Abs Infomercial Test Group in 2011 losing 36lbs & 49% body fat, and is featured in the Hip Hop Abs Infomercial. 
John was a December 2012 Beachbody $500 Transformation Winner. 
John’s photography was selected for inclusion in the Schmap New York Guide Seventh Edition. 
John is a A Real Change Certified WordPress Expert.

Muscles & More

Andrea grew deeply passionate about the health and fitness industry.With her modeling career demanding aN EXTREMLY conscientious health and body fitness awareness. Andrea became captivated by the fitness and health world, and thus began her career as a fitness model, at the age of 26, after spotting a fitness magazine in the check-out isle of her local grocery store. She looked up at her boyfriend at the time and said the following words “I’m going to be on the cover of this magazine!” Just two months later, she was!

With a strong passion for working out and the fitness lifestyle Andrea quickly realized that she wanted to begin creating a dynamic brand behind herself. Dropping her fake name, Andrea moved forward into the fitness model industry, where she became the “eye candy” to get the men to purchase the magazines. Soon after, magazine covers followed!

During this same time, Andrea’s health began to fail, due her high protein diet, and on going battle with bulimia for almost two years, which had now, began to take its toll.

Health & Wellness

The sudden change in her health, forced Andrea to look at her nutritional lifestyle and health once again, wherein she discovered the life changing powers of juicing, fasting and raw living foods! Andrea began to soak up information about this lifestyle and immediately made the change.

During that same year, Andrea decided it was time to follow her newfound interest in raw living foods, Andrea flew herself out to New York, to meet the author of a popular raw foods book, only to learn that the author of the book was not responsible for the advice that had been given, but rather, that it was the author’s colon hydro therapist who had the “real” knowledge.

This was the event that changed Andrea’s life forever! Little did she know it at the time, it was to become the driving force that would motivate Andrea onto a more influential path, after realizing that she would have to directly nurture herself with living foods, juices and intermediate fasting. This was a change Andrea had to make for herself and could not rely on another person to do that for her.

Inspired by the mere thought that she could change her health on a cellular level and Andrea underwent an intense self-induced journey into healing her body, healthily, and naturally.

A Raw Beginning

Andrea began a 40 day juice fast to detoxify her body, followed by a seven day water fast, she quickly realized the health benefits of raw foods and juicing, and began to immerse herself into the Raw Vegan lifestyle and world. Her raw journey had just began!

Following her new found path, she attended the California Academy of Healing Arts, where she studied holistic healing and was certified in reflexology. Andrea followed this by working closely under a Shaman, for a year to learn more about detoxification both through body and spirit.

Andrea soon realized that both men and women suffered from eating disorders that often had a mental component to them. Andrea began concentrating her efforts on spreading her experience and knowledge, and became a powerful raw vegan and health guru.
