After I left Vegas I spent a week in Colorado with my family. I had really started to learn more about fitness and nutrition as a Beachbody Coach and was really loving what I was learning. No more processed meals, was learning how to cook healthy food and how food really can be medicine. My mom had about 30 pounds that she could stand to lose and was on 3 different medications all for weight related issues. The more I learned and read, the more concerned I became for her health and I wanted her around longer.
I sent her an email asking her to give me simply TEN MINUTES of movement everyday. She told me she would start walking and with my Beachbody discount I bought her Ten Minute Trainer for her 60th birthday. Six months later she still hadn’t even taken the DVD out of the box, much less pressed play. I told her when I was there we were going to work out everyday and follow the routine. I also helped her come up with a nutrition plan and we made some changes to what she was eating.
We had to modify some of the exercises, like push ups, and we opted to stick to walking outside instead of the indoor cardio. We did the 6 or 7 days together and I wasn’t sure what to expect when I left. Thankfully she stuck to it and went from a size 14 to a size 2 or 4. She is off two of three of her meds and a lower doseage for another one. I’m SO proud of her and she is by far my favorite success story with Beachbody!
I remember when we first walked around the neighborhood and she was huffing and puffing after 10 minutes. Now she can easily walk 3 miles and has stuck to her routine! She’s inspiring those around her as well.
I LOVE being a Beachbody Coach, but it isn’t for everyone. So, lets figure out if it is for YOU!!
Are you currently using a Beachbody product like P90X, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs, Shakeology, etc?
Are you loving your results and talking to friends, family and strangers about what you are doing?
Have you already inspired someone else to try one of the workouts?
Do you enjoy helping others get the BEST results they can from the program?
Would you like to save 25% on all Beachbody products?
Could you use some extra money in your pocket?
If you answered YES to these questions then YOU are already PRACTICALLY a Coach!
I like this 25 minute video THE BEST for REALLY understanding how the opportunity works.
I would LOVE to TALK to you and answer any questions you have about Coaching, the benefits, how it works, and how it has changed my life!
I get a question a fair amount that I don’t have the answer to. I wish I had all the answers but I don’t. So I figured I would throw it out there and see what comes back.
Here’s the question I get over and over again:
“How can I get my neighbor, friend, mom, dad, spouse, brother, sister, etc to change their health, fitness routine, eating habits, etc. My husband eats ice cream for dinner, my friend wont even walk across the street, my dad is on 5 different medications for this that or the other weight related problem.” And on and on.
I can make silly videos of me doing jumping jacks, telling you to turn off of the computer and go press play, I can tell you what I am eating and take pictures of my chopped up veggies and give recipes, I can answer questions on sugar and workouts and protein. But I CAN’T make someone do something they are not willing to do for themselves. If I lived near you, believe me, I would be inviting you to workout with me, try the protein bar I just made and share a smoothie with you. But I don’t live near most of you.
All I know is what worked for me and my mom. It took her FIVE months to actually press play once I bought her Ten Minute Trainer. I think what did it for her was an email I sent to her. After I had done some research I realized how EASY it is to change your health for the better, how easy it can be to get off medications and I knew she could do it by making changes over time. I asked her to do me a favor. I asked her for 10 minutes of her day and during those 10 minutes she would do some sort of exercise. I told her I needed her around and healthy WAY LONGER than she was going to be if she didn’t make some changes. That was the click for her. She wrote me back that day and promised she would do at least 10 minutes a day.
Does your loved one know exactly how important they are to you? How much you care about their health? That you WANT them around? That their behavior IS affecting how the kids view food and exercise. That we CAN make a difference in the health of future generations. Life is worth living to the fullest and being fit and healthy allows someone to experience more in life than someone unhealthy. Do you believe that? Has it clicked for YOU? Do you know I care about your health and want you to feel the way I do everyday after a workout and clean eating? I haven’t connected with each of you, but know that there IS someone who cares, that wants you to succeed. Don’t believe me? Give me a call, or drop me a line.
Chalene Johnson, creator of Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire says “Fitness is a party – people have to be invited to it.” Invite someone you care about to workout with you. They may say no, over and over again. Someday, when the time is right for them it WILL click – they will decide that enough is enough and that they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Continue to work towards your goals, your results, the way you feel will shine through.
So, sorry for not having the answer on this one. I would love to hear more from you all on this subject. If you helped inspire someone to do more, eat better, etc. fill me in – what worked for you? I would love to be able to share it with everyone else!
If you have made the decision to be a Beachbody Coach I have a few tips for you!
1. Once you KNOW that you want to be a Coach get started as soon as possible! I hear too many times people want to wait until they have more time or until things “calm down” in life. Does this EVER happen? Do you ever get more time? There are HUGE benefits to getting started sooner rather than later.
~ You don’t have to commit a lot of time to your business right off the bat. But you can STILL make money just by telling people to go to your website to make their purchases.
~ YOUR Coach, and the Coaches he or she has signed will continue to build their business. You may wait a couple months to focus on Coaching and in that time NUMEROUS coaches can be added to your downline. You will benefit from these coaches and the work they do after you add your first two coaches. If you wait two months you’ll end up getting placed UNDER the coaches that join before you. Would you rather help them, or have them help YOU?
2. INTERVIEW Coaches! You get to CHOSE who you work with in this business. I found out about Coaching on the TeamBeachbody.com website after I had done 45 days of P90X. I started doing research and started talking to other coaches, finding out what they liked about it, how it worked, etc. I was really surprised that some coaches I asked about it never got back to me. I picked MY Coach, Caterina Passerelli because she quickly responded to my questions. She didn’t try to “Sell” me on Coaching, she told me her story, why she is a coach and I knew she was committed to Coaching.
~ Join with a coach who you TRUST, who you RESPECT, who you can see yourself LEARNING from. You will be in close contact with this person via emails and phone calls. Make sure they are at least AS committed to their business and will help you reach your goals.
If a Coach wont take the time to make you feel comfortable with your decision BEFORE you sign up do you think they will make you feel comfortable AFTER you sign up?

I decided to become an Independent Beachbody Coach about 45 days into my first round of P90X because I realized that MY results were inspiring people to get P90X and to get fitter- but plenty of people sign up to be a coach just for the awesome discount on all the fabulous Beachbody products. I finally decided to really do the math and see the difference and was very excited to share the numbers with you- ESPECIALLY if you are a SHAKEOLOGY user!
If you are a Shakeology user and not a COACH you may consider it after this email!
Shakeology for the general public is $119.95 and for a 12 month supply it would be $1439.40
If you were a Club member you save 10%, so $107.96 each month, for the year it would be $1295.52. Of course, Club Members do pay a fee for the meal plan options and the 10% off the rest of Beachbody products and that works out to be $155.48 for the year, add that on and your total for the year is $1451.00
Now Coaches also have a couple fees – your monthly fee of $14.95 for the website ($179.40 for the year) and a one time $39.99 fee (can be waived if you purchase a Shakeology starter kit). BUT Coaches save 25% off all Beachbody products and have the opportunity to MAKE MONEY – 25% commission on Beachbody products – Club Members and Free Members sure don’t get that perk! Coaches only pay $89.96 for a bag of Shakeology, or $1079.52 a year, plus the fees it comes to $1298.91 a year – that is a $140.49 SAVINGS even with the costs of being a coach! That’s like getting a bag of Shakeology for free and still have $50 to spend on whatever else you want!
The thing I hear the MOST about people worried about being a coach is that they don’t want to “SELL”. I know the feeling, I HATE selling!! But I never feel like I am selling the product – I love it so much and am so passionate about it that it just comes naturally to SHARE the product. So imagine this – you shake up your lunch at your desk one day and someone asks you what you are drinking – you explain, they try it, like it and want to buy it, send them to YOUR store and you can end up making money! And even if you JUST do it for the discount that is fine, the great thing about this business is it can be EXACTLY what YOU want it to be – from just a discount to a new career!
If you have any questions PLEASE let me know. Like ANYTHING with Beachbody there is a 30 day money back gaurantee. With Shakeology it is a bottom of the bag guarantee. You can try both with NO risk!
