    Habit Formers Basics

    Effective 12/31/2012 with Trisch Richardson

    Everyone needs help now and again to reach their wellness/fitness goals. Habit Formers is a way to be accountable and help you reach your weekly workout goals to get you the results you want. We want to celebrate accomplishment and support challenges or setbacks. When you join Habit Formers you are making a commitment to yourself. You commit to giving your all to three (3) T-Tapp workouts each week. Three workouts is a minimum not a maximum. You can certainly post any workouts above and beyond those 3 to show accountability and progress, but when I calculate Habit Former statistics, I will count a maximum of 3 workouts per person per week. Non T-Tapp workouts will not count toward the 3 weekly workouts.

    For Track A, when you get either 3 short workouts or 12 moves posted per week, you will earn half (1/2) of a Habit Former reward point. If you do any more mini workouts or more than 12 moves, you may post them, but only 3 mini workouts or 12 moves will count toward your earned reward point. And as with Track 1 and 2 workouts, if you complete your goals for all 4 weeks in a given month, you will earn a bonus of (1) point.

    Habit Formers has three tracks based on your needs and goals:

    Track A - Adrenal/Health Challenged track
    Track One - BWO+/More track

    Track Two - Total Workout track


    What counts as a workout?

    Track A workouts include:

    *3 "mini" workouts per week: Any of the short workouts from MORE or MORE 2 (Chair, Step, Broom) (they can be a variety or the same one), MORE 3 Chair and/or SunRay TappCore 2, and/or TappCore walking segment, and/or Broom 2, and/or any of the four segments of the Debulk Sequences Barre workout (between the water breaks). First Step Barre Warm-Up and Senior Fit Floor Warm-Up count as well.

    *12 moves from any workout. The 12 moves can be dispersed throughout the week as you are able. If you can do 3 moves one day, but only 1 on the next, it all can accumulate. You must do 12 moves to earn credit, and Primary Back Stretch (PBS) counts, as does Organs in Place if done with either Half Frogs or Elevators (not just OIP alone).


    Track One workouts include:

    All Chapter 4 moves from Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes

    How do I Join or Rejoin?

    Drop me an email at trisch@beyouthfulnfit.com telling me your full name, forum handle, city, state and what track you are pursuing.


    How do I Report My Workouts?

    Each week, I will start a thread for posting completed workouts - only workouts should be posted on this thread. Other threads will be started for posing questions or for support. You must post your workouts on the reporting thread by 11:59 PM (EST) the Wednesday following the close of the week (which ends on Sunday). I will calculate statistics on Thursday and will not go back and look for posts made after Wednesday. Posts and edits made after 11:59 PM (EST)will be disregarded. As the Habit Former Leader, I will begin each week's posting thread and will not accept workouts posted on participant-started threads.

    Please post your workouts as you accomplish them, not ahead of time. Plans change and we want to keep the reporting thread accurate.

    Workouts submitted to me (Trisch) by email will be rejected; no exceptions. Please post your workouts on the forum.


    How do I Change my Track?

    You may change your track up to once per month by emailing Trisch at trisch@beyouthfulnfit.com

    If you recently joined Habit Formers, you may not change your Track for the first 30 days. If you started with Track 2 and find it's too much for you, e-mail me as I do make exceptions!


    I'm on Track 2. If I do BWO+ one day and SATI the next, does that count?

    While all T-Tapp efforts are applauded, to get "credit" for a Track 2 workout, both workouts must be done on the same day.


    I'm on Track 1 and completed a Track 2 workout. Does that count?

    Yes. However, if you are signed up for Track 1 and complete Track 2 for 4 weeks in a row, I will automatically change you to Track 2.


    How Long am I a Habit Former?

    You are a Habit Former as long as you continue to post your workouts. If you fail to post workouts for a period of 12 or more weeks, I will remove you from the active roster. If you have an emergency or health issue arise that will keep you from posting for more than 4 weeks, please e-mail me. Please note that even if you don't complete the required amount of workouts/moves but you post what you do, that still keeps you active.

        Sorry! I'm new and I think I crashed the habit formers by mistake. I haven't received the DVD's yet so I'm working on the three exercises from the book DVD and some youtube videos- clearly not to the same intensity as T tappers on the habit forming forum!
        Loving my mini workouts though. Absolutely loving them and can't wait to get my DVD's.

          Not a problem, Marie! Did you e-mail me at trisch (at) beyouthfulnfit (dot) com? I've been out of commission for a few weeks since my husband's surgery but am catching up. If you e-mailed me and I don't respond within the next few days, you can remind me!

          If you are doing at least 12 moves per week, then you qualify for Track A.

            Good question! I think it will be Track 1, unless you do both walking workouts, then it would be Track 2. I'll need to update the list!

              It is technically still a Track 2 workout, but you can count it towards Track 1.

            I don't want to be confusing in how I post. When I do FSFF I'm posting which workouts I do, "FSFF 1, 4, 5, 6". But sometimes I do the first 30 minutes and then record it as "FSFF first half."

            Do you have a preference in how we post these?

              AlisaJDrury holy cow, no, FSFF is Track 2! But if you do 15-30 minutes of it, then it counts as Track 1. Although I think PBS is almost 15 minutes, lol. Basically the PBS segment and enough to get you to 20-30 minutes for Track 1. At least that's my understanding.

            Hello Trisch:
            I was looking at the options for Track 1 and Track 2. I noticed that both tracks list class w/trainer. Would that mean that the videos, such as the ones in defeating diastasis and the fascia first from your class would count? I haven't been listing them and wondered if they are considered a class. Thanks for clarifying. Lily

              I'm not Trisch but typically they would count, unless they're really short.

              Goodness! Sorry I missed this, Lily! And thanks for commenting, Lisa!

              For Defeating Diastasis, I would count those for Track A, especially if all you are doing is the Defeating Diastasis course and not really doing workouts.

              For the videos in any of my classes (Beautiful YOU or Beautiful Basics), you can count the shorter ones as Track 1 (The Core Focus and Bonus Focus videos). The call would definitely be Track 2! But if you are Track 1 you can certainly count it, and you can split it up, too and it still counts. Even splitting it into thirds would count.

              I need to update this page!

            Holiday #1
            Holiday #2 (Thinking about buying this one)

              LOL! ME TOO! I am waaayyyy behind!

              Teresa's Favorite Fascia Stretch--LOVE that, too! That is a Track 1 workout.

              Holiday workouts #1, #2 and #3 all Track 1, but I haven't seen them. I called the office to talk about #3 because I wasn't sure what moves/muscle activation was like. So listen to your body on that one!

              And if you have #3 and want to tell me what moves are in it, that may help me make a better decision, but we'll call it Track 1 for now!

                Holiday Workout #3 has full PBS, plies, reach aways, lawn mowers, hip twists (not sure what to call those), balance sequence with lunge-torso-twists and thread the needle. Fascia stretching and kick outs with knee lifts throughout.

                As far as how challenging it is, I'd equate it with TBT Standing.
