9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

9misconceptions 9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

Becoming a coach with Beachbody has seriously been THE best decision I have ever made in my life!! It has not only impacted me professionally (I have built a six figure business in less than 3 years), but also on a personal level. The income is not even why I do this! I started this just as a hobby because I hated my job and was unfulfilled. I would be happy if I made $100 a month, heck $0 and I would still do it! But, seriously I have become more confident, learned so much about myself, improved my relationships, my finances, and met THE absolute BEST friends along the way!

I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t make this decision, something I didn’t think I had the time for that scared the poop out of me. Well, actually I can but I do not want to even think about that because it is scary. I have no regrets! Well, if I had one it would be that I did not start sooner! I put it off for 3 months because I was scared and felt I didn’t have the time. I was working 80+ hours a week as the Director of Residence Life at a college, doing my master’s degree, and volunteering at church. All while trying to find time to sleep, poop, and eat, you know normal human things icon smile 9 Common Misconceptions about Beachbody Coaching

I have NO DOUBT that being a coach is my PURPOSE in life. It is my passion and I LOVE helping others and encouraging them to grow their own business as well. When I talk to others about my experience as a coach and about the business itself, people who don’t understand can be very skeptical about it. I totally understand because a lot of people are misinformed. So I thought I would write up a blog post about the biggest misconceptions about being a coach with Beachbody that I hear along with my answers to those misconceptions.

1. I don’t have the money to be a Beachbody Coach.

Okay for reals!?! SAY WHAT?!?! This is an opportunity for you to MAKE money, not spend it! As your sponsor, my first goal is to help you cover the cost of your own products which is SUPER SIMPLE to do. You just have to help 3 people a month and I will help you do that! Then we will build up from there. I was able to earn back what I paid to start within the first month, but I was a SLOW STARTER. I am now helping my new coaches earn back what they paid within their first week or two! I have no doubt I can help you do the same. This opportunity has seriously changed my life financially: I am earning a six figure income and I have almost NO DEBT left whatsoever (just a few thousand bucks which will be paid off within the next month). If money is a concern for you, then I am sorry to say this but you are too broke to NOT do this.

 

2. I’m not a sales person.

GROSS! Me neither!! They are icky and pushy and not cool! Do you feel you are being a sales person when you tell your best friend about your favorite nail salon or restaurant? UM NO! It is perfectly natural to share something you love and feel passionate about. That is all this business is about! You are SHARING your love of the products and your experiences. You are NOT selling. I told my sponsor when I signed up the same thing and that I didn’t care if I made money. But, because I truly care about helping others and share my passions it all just clicked. I teach everyone on the team to do the same in a very non-salesy not icky way. You do earn at least 25% commission when anyone you share with purchases from your website. All I literally do is share my story and the stories of others and people just come to me asking me how to join, that easy.

3. I’m not a fitness expert.

Great! Because I’m not either. I did lose 60 lbs back in 2009, but I did not go to school for nutrition or fitness. My master’s degree is actually in higher education. You do not have to be an expert. All you need to be successful is the desire to help others. You don’t have to be a personal trainer or nutritionist. In fact, most of us are not. As a coach, I am an accountability partner, friend, and fellow warrior on the road to getting healthier. The fitness professional stuff is left to the creators of the Beachbody products and everything people need is provided in the DVDs and guides.

4. I don’t have enough time to be a coach.

Really? Do you not have 30 minutes throughout the day that you don’t have anything to do? Even if it’s 10 minutes here and there? How much time do you spend scrolling Facebook? Or watching TV? Beachbody is not a get rich quick scheme, but it does not require a lot of time. I started this when I was working 80+ hours a week, on top of doing my master’s degree and volunteering. Many of the coaches on this team also started their journey while working full-time and have later been able to quit their full-time jobs because their income with Beachbody exceeded their full-time salary. But, that was done in part-time hours. I literally only work 20 hours a week and earn a six figure income. NO WAY IN HELL I regret finding the time do this when I was working 80+ hours and I know you won’t either.

5. I’m not fit!

That is actually an advantage for you! And it doesn’t matter anyway. When I went to my first Beachbody event, I was terrified that I would look like a busted can of biscuits compared to all of the super fit people. But, I was completely wrong! Majority of coaches are not super ripped. MANY coaches are just beginning their journey. People love to follow people who are struggling through the same things or who have gone through it before. Because YOU GET IT. You have an advantage because people will see your results and come to you and ask you what you’re doing! My coach Steph started with the 21 Day Fix and within her first 30 days of the business she had at least 5-10 people a week reaching out to her asking her how they could get started with what she was doing.

6. Beachbody is one of those pyramid schemes!

This is actually the biggest misconception that I come across. Everyone complains about pyramid schemes, except for the few who actually know what they are. A pyramid scheme is actually an illegal business model that requires people to pay money to join and there is no actual product. Beachbody is a network marketing company, which is a business model that has been in existence for many decades. And just because you start first doesn’t mean you will earn all the money. You could start this and surpass me and make more money than I do. We all work as a team and help each other and the structure is really like a railroad track because you earn based on what the ENTIRE team is doing.

7. I need prior business experience!

I was definitely unqualified then, haha. This is a business and to see results you must be committed, but all we do is just share our experience more than anything else. Beachbody spends millions of dollars each year on advertising and the products are a household name. People may not know what Beachbody is, but as soon as I ask them, “you know the people who make P90X and Insanity?” they immediately know what I am talking about. You also don’t have to handle any of the products, returns, or processing because it is all done for you. So no stock piling products in your garage. Ain’t no one got time for that! I had no experience running a business when I started this and it didn’t stop me from earning a six figure income. I know it won’t stop you either.

8. Only the people that started first make any money!

This is something I mentioned earlier, but there is no limit on your earnings. The person that started before you may not even work their business, make nothing, while you could earn $50,000. You are not limited to what anyone who starts before you is earning. The only person directly related to your income is YOU. I did not get in early and I held myself back for a while. Like I said, I was a slow starter. Yet I am still earning a six  figure income.

9. But my friend tried network marketing and failed.

Most people know someone who started a network marketing company and then quit. Guess what? Quitting is not how you succeed! If you just give it one year with consistent effort (30 minutes a day, literally) you WILL see results. If I would have quit when I wasn’t seeing results, I would not be where I am today. Success doesn’t happen over night. The ones who stick it out earn an incredible income. So just learn from those around you who are successful and follow their example. There are many examples of successful coaches on my team that you can emulate, as well as myself. This is something you will have to work for and you can’t sign up and do nothing and expect money to come. But, if you sign up with the right mentor who has an established and proven system that will make a huge difference. I have helped people from other network marketing companies who “failed” at that business and have seen success quickly with my help. I work diligently on their training, mentorship, and professional development. You may be shocked at your potential when these things are available to you. It has changed my life.

 

I hope this eases some of your worries and misconceptions about coaching with Beachbody and gives you more insight on what the company does. Do you have other questions about coaching that I did not cover here? Just submit an application here and I will be in touch with you!

I am SOOO FLIPPING excited today ya’ll!!! The moment we have all been waiting for (well at least me haha) is finally here! The 21 Day Fix Extreme is officially available through me as your coach!!!

It is time to take your results to the next level!! It’s time to take it to the max and get those abs and muscle definition you have been longing for. You may be reading this and thinking that you don’t necessarily want to be ripped, but you do want to get to your next fitness level. In that case, this is absolutely perfect for you, too! I would say that if you have 10-20 pounds to lose and you’re at the end of your weight loss journey with a base level of fitness already, this program is the PERFECT fit for you!

The program combines strength training with constant cardio and power moves to bring your body 6 days of intense change! Since nutrition is 80% of your results, you will be eating only clean foods. With the Extreme you can’t have treats like you can in the original 21 Day Fix. You are 100% clean and dialed in to nutrition with the portion control containers that make things so simple.

But, don’t fret! If you are still a beginner or don’t want to give up those treats I still want to help you! I will be offering a support group for a special group of 10 women with a beginner option and an extreme option. So if you go for the beginner, the workouts won’t be as intense and you still get treats in moderation.

Here are some results from one of the girls who did the test group!

2.  21 Day Fix graduates or people who have completed programs like P90X, Insanity Max30, T25, Turbofire, etc.

3.  People who do not have a lot of weight to lose that are dedicated, committed to following the nutrition plan and have a no BS attitude.  There are no excuses, if you want the results its time to dig a little deeper and get them!

4.  People who don’t want to count calories or macros (F all that nonsense haha). It’s based on a SIMPLE and EASY to follow portion controlled container system that gives you a very specific list of foods and ways to prep and prepare your meals.

The BEST part is that you are not on this journey alone.  I am here with you the entire way and will reserve your spot in my private online support and accountability group. My goal is to make sure you get the absolute best results possible! I will be there to provide accountability, tips, recipes, and we will cheer each other on the whole way and help each other stay focused when life gets in the way! Accountability has TOTALLY been the secret sauce to AMAZING results for me!

And seriously this is an example of a meal you can eat! Yes those are healthy buffalo wings!

21dayfixextreme21reasons 21 Day Fix Extreme is Here: Get In Now and In My Support Group to Complete It!!

Why am I doing the 21 day fix?
Because I have struggled with over eating and binge eating on and off the last year and a half. A lot of it has had to do with emotions and doing way too restrictive dieting. But, I have also failed to plan and have gotten lazy and not cooked often. And failing to plan is the best way to come across failure. I have some weight I’d like to lose since I have not been consistent with my eating.

Also, I am going on a trip I earned (thank you Beachbody!)to Cancun in 2 months and I want to looking flipping AMAZE and feel confident in my clothes and bikini!  I know that I need to start getting ready now because it is going to take longer than one month to get in my best shape. And the warm weather will be coming before we know it!

Strive for Progress Not Perfection

progress Strive for Progress Not Perfection
As I mentioned the other day on Facebook, I had  an off week last week with my eating. I had some left over snacks from a girls night at my apartment that I wouldn’t normally keep here. I had a snack attack several nights this week & missed my workout yesterday. But, it’s all about progress not perfection.But instead of beating myself up, I focused on how far I’ve come & the healing God is giving me. If this would’ve been me just a few months ago, I would’ve been on my bathroom floor crying & probably with a spoon & a jar of cookie butter (it’s like crack, don’t buy it). Again, progress not perfection!

But this week I instead accepted the fact that I was human & celebrated the fact that it was only half a jar of peanut butter I consumed (that’s a lot I know, but I’m just being real). And I got right back to eating healthy on a Saturday out of all days! Strive for progress not perfection! 

Normally I would’ve been like, “yeah I will wait till Monday it’s the weekend,” because I knew I had a lot planned with friends & stuff going on at church. But I instead made healthy choices being out the entire weekend. I feel almost back to normal!

I say all this to say that I’m not where I want to be (my abs have gone in to hiding after this week lol), but I sure as hell ain’t where I used to be! I’m not in fetal position with sweets, I’m sipping my Shakeology enjoying the sunshine instead. 

So strive for progress, not perfection peeps! No more beating yourself up because I care about you!

How to Overcome Binge Eating

overcome binge eating How to Overcome Binge Eating

Today I wanted to write about something that I also struggle with in hopes that it’ll help others. Ever since losing 60 lbs a few years ago & keeping it off, I have struggled with binge eating. I will decide to go on these crazy restrictive diets & then when I am done & can have “real food” again, I tend to get out of control.

Most recently I was doing probably the most restrictive diet I have ever done in my life & it caused me to end up binging pretty bad at Christmas. I literally just wrote ya’ll a post Monday about how to stay healthy, but I didn’t follow it myself. Sweets are totally my weakness so I overindulged on several cookies & lots of Sangria. But for once, I am not going to beat myself up & am going to take this as a learning lesson. I have decided no more crazy restrictive diets, I will just eat healthy & allow myself small treats in moderation so that I don’t feel the need to overindulge.

So because of all this I was doing some research on how to overcome binge eating so I wanted to share it with ya’ll, too.

  1. Mange your stress. Find alternate ways to handle stress such as exercising, meditating, or other relaxation practices.
  2. Eat 3 meals a day plus healthy snacks. Be sure that you’re eating every 2-3 hours & consuming healthy foods. Think lots of whole grains, lean proteins, veggies, & fruits.
  3. Avoid temptation. Remove all the junk food from your house so it’s not there to tempt you.
  4. Stop dieting. Avoid banning certain foods & focus on just having things in moderation when you are craving something “unhealthy.”
  5. Exercise. It will help boost your mood & the positive emotions can put a stop to binge eating.
  6. Fight boredom. Distract yourself from eating by taking a walk, calling a friend, or reading a book.
  7. Get enough sleep. Make sure you’re getting 7-8 hours a night.
  8. Listen to your body. Learn to distinguish physical hunger & emotional hunger. Drink a glass of water & if you’re still hungry 15 minutes later, than you’re truly hungry.
  9. Keep a food diary. Track what you’re eating. You’ll be less likely to eat too much if you know you have to write it down.
  10. Get support. Use your family & friends to lean on. Join a support group.

I know the one that stood out to me most was “stop dieting” because that’s basically the only one that I’m struggling with now. I also know that having a huge support system around me helps so much! I never had this before I became a coach. I would love to help you get the amazing accountability & support that I get on a daily basis. Head over here to come join us!

Your Mind Controls Everything

Your Mind Controls Everything Your Mind Controls Everything

 

Am I a coach? Yes! Do I love eating healthy & working out? Duh! Am I motivated to most days? For the most part, sometimes I still feel like my old 200 lb self though! Today was NOT one of those days though where i felt motivated, just being real. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, wanted to keep sleeping, was beating myself up for everything imaginable. Seriously, your mind controls everything.

But you know what? I’m SO thankful for Jesus to get me through anything, for my accountability partner, & to be a part of the online groups that I’m leading because they help keep me on track! And guess what else? None of these people I knew before, my accountability partner I didn’t know, yet they’re the most amazing group of people ever! People are losing the amount of weight I’ve lost (60 lbs) in just MONTHS, whereas it took me a little over a year because I didn’t have accountability or support. Your mind controls everything.

I took some extra time feeding my mind with positivity because we determine what thoughts come in to our minds & stay. Like Pastor Steven says, make a decision what you let in & out of your life so you don’t let certain thought patterns control your mind. I’m so thankful for my group & my Jesus today!! Your mind controls everything, feed it something positive.

In today’s video I wanted to address just how your mind controls everything. I actually made this video for my group, but wanted to share it with y’all as well icon smile Your Mind Controls Everything
