About Me

No, that is not me in the background, its Tony Horton of P90X fame. I’m Scott and that is where I hope my meandering path leads me one day.

I live just outside Birmingham, Alabama with my wife and two kids (three and five). My wife is Coach Crystal of CoachCrystalFitness.com.  I started this blog to document my journey through P90X2 — to answer questions and provide insight of my struggles and successes.

However, knowing myself as I do, I expect this blog to meander.  And that is ok. While this blog is being written because I enjoy writing, I hope you enjoy reading it. I would love to hear from you.  Shoot me a line if you have a question, if you think I am an idiot, or if I made you think.   scott@coachcrystalfitness.com.

P.S. Yes, I know the path behind the title doesn’t meander.  But there are a lot of doors into which I may meander…Ha!

P.P.S. I completed P90X2, have since competed INSANITY (with Shaun T), and have become somewhat addicted to obstacle course racing…check out my blog for all these mini-journeys.

I am on the road to fitness, but it is a long, slow process.  (Heck, I didn’t get so out of shape quickly, now did I?)

    Hi, thanks for liking my blog! I like your style too. But I’m sure glad I’m not in it to lose weight because I really DO like a beer now and then! And no, I will never have abs like Crystal’s.

    Thanks for swinging by my blog, imreadytolose.com. I mention the name because if you follow my gravatar it’ll take you to my main blog about violets… might get a bit confusing. I look forward to following your journey through p90x2 and will have to swing by your wife’s site. Good luck! (to both of us) – well, as I’m sure you know, it doesn’t take luck, it takes perseverence and commitment! so – Good Success!!!

    Thanks for coming by my blog. I will check yours out. Good luck with P90X. I loved it when I “did” it. But I couldn’t fit it into my long term workouts…too many activities I did not want to give up. 🙂

  11. W.P. says:

    I’ve been meandering around the path towards a healthy lifestyle, too. I had a choice between P90X or Insanity, but since I didn’t have any equipment, I stuck with Insanity. May our journey be fruitful and fulfilling!

  12. Another award for ya … I just nominated you for the ABC Award! Pop over and pick it up!

    Thanks for reading and following. I sort of hope that if I know people besides my immediate family know what I’m doing it will challenge me and egg me on.
    Thanks again,
    Kenton Lewis

  17. I like your meanderings. In my personal journal, I call them my musings. Keep it up, though. I have been an hour and a half a day, five days a week, for the past three months. I’m liking the changes.

    Scott, I’m really impressed by your blog and willingness to share your story. My P90X disks are collecting dust (wife bought and used them for a bit). Guess its my turn to give Horton try. You’ve inspired me!


  19. Tag, you’re nominated!!!AGAIN!!!I have been following you along your journey and I’ve been inspired by so many of your posts. You are making great changes in your life and I know you’re going to continue to make even more. Congratulations! Here’s my link! http://yourtruthdiet.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/and-the-nominees-are/

    Hey, great blog you have going on. Best wishes in your fitness goals!

  21. Good for you, doing P90X2. I’ve been doing the original P90X for 3 years, and I’ve never been in such good shape (couldn’t ever do a “real” pull up before).

  22. My Sister and Brother-in-Law do P90X. I had never heard of it before but they say it works for them. I just run, watch my diet do some stretching and occasional weight training. I look forward to reading your blog and learning more about P90X.
