Why should I log in to team beachbody?
This means if you do not already have a beachbody account and have me assigned as your coach you should go to www.teambeachbody.com/melaniemitro and create a free account. Then, when you are logged in as a team member your P90X workouts will sync with your account on teambeachbody.com unless auto sync in the settings is turned off.

So I am super excited about this app and as soon as I get my iPhone for Christmas this will be the first thing I download.
