I am sure you know by now, I am a Beachbody Coach. You see my challenge group invites, the programs I am doing and my personal progress. But, have you ever wondered what exactly I do as a coach?
Before I signed up, I had NO CLUE what a Beachbody Coach did. If I am completely honest, I thought it was a pyramid and a get rich quick scam. I wanted nothing to do with it, mainly because I had no idea what it was all about.
One day back in November 2013, I saw a girl on Instagram post about the coaching opportunity. She mentioned that she had been coaching for about 5 months, was earning income and inspiring others and wanted to know if there was anyone who wanted to join her team. For some reason, I decided to leave my email in the comments and see what happened! She emailed me and later that day, I was an official Beachbody Coach. She made me feel comfortable, told me all about the team support, the training's and made me feel like she was really genuinely wanting to help me have the same success she did in the business. At this point, I had lost 50+ pounds and P90X was one of the programs that helped me lose weight. I went to school for Finance and Economics and wanted a way to do something with my passion for fitness and health without having to go back to school for a different degree. Beachbody gave me that opportunity. Also, I really wanted to help others get healthy. It changed my life and I really wanted to help others do the same! I will be honest though, I had low expectations for coaching. I knew it would be worth it because just by coaching, I would be saving over $20 a month on Shakeology due to the coach 25% discount. But more than that, I was hoping to just make an extra $50 or so to help out with my upcoming wedding and to just have some extra spending money. I had no idea where coaching would take me.
Flash forward a year and a half and I am now a Two Star Qualifying Beachbody Coach with my own team called Fearlessly Fit. My team has grown to over 70 coaches and is growing by the day. My team of coaches is like a family. I trust them with things I don't tell too many people. We support one another, give each other tips and advice, hold one another accountable and encourage one another. Most of them are complete strangers, yet I feel incredibly close to them. My team is a part of a much larger team with over 3,000 coaches. That team is just like Fearlessly Fit - supportive, motivating, encouraging...and like family. On top of all of that, I am now doubling the income I make at my full time corporate job. Never in a million years did I think that would be possible with Beachbody.
Beachbody has given me the ability to turn my passion for fitness and health into a business. It has given me the opportunity to pay it forward and inspire other women to get healthy and change their lives. Losing weight changed me. If I can help just ONE other person lose weight and feel as good as I do, it makes me feel like my journey was worth it and it gives me purpose. This is what I was meant to do.
I still work my full time job. I am a mom and a wife. I take care of the household, cook dinner, meal prep and still get in my workouts every morning at 4 AM. Coaching is something I have been able to do from my own living room in my spare time. So many people tell me they don't have time to be a coach. How much time does it take? That is what I always want to ask them! Coaching is different for everyone. Some coach for the discount, some coach as a hobby and others do this as a full time job. The is the beauty of being a business owner - you get to set your schedule. If you want to work and make this a full time job, you can do that. If you want to coach just enough to get your shakeology paid for, you can do that too!
My only regret is that I didn't sign up sooner. I wish I would have known about what this opportunity was REALLY about. I would have signed up a LONG time ago and would be a lot further along in my business. This is why I want to share this opportunity with you. I want to tell you about the ins and outs of coaching. How does a coach make money, how does a coach advance in rank, what are the different ranks, what are the perks, what is the team structure like, what kind of trainings are available and how you will get started.
I am hosting a 5 Day Coaching Preview starting on June 1st and going until June 5th. No strings attached, just a way for you to see what this coaching thing is about and see if it is something that would interest you. Maybe you find coaching is exactly what you want to do or maybe you find you want nothing to do with it. Either way - come join me! Bring your questions, your concerns and your hesitations and let's address them! Other coaches from my team will be joining too so you can get a couple different perspectives on coaching!
Hope to see you there!
