There are many benefits to Team Beachbody Coaching. I am often asked WHY I became a Beachbody Coach. Initially, I joined simply to keep myself accountable. Before P90X3 my exercise was not consistent. I would make great plans and set out goals for getting more healthy, but then I would get a couple of weeks into my workouts and life would happen or I would use having small children as an excuse. Time and time again I would sabotage myself and at times even my husband because of my emotional issues with my body and being able to keep pressing play.
In January of 2014 my husband and I purchased P90X3 through our Beachbody Coach. She invited us to her on-line accountability group, which I really enjoyed. It was the first time in my life that I loved working out and the accountability the group brought was invaluable to me. I loved the changes I saw in my skin, my energy level and my overall body. I knew that if I did not keep plugged into the Beachbody community I would end up going back to my old ways. I made the decision after a conversation with my own Beachbody coach to become a Beachbody Coach as well. I initially signed up to keep myself accountable and to receive the coaching discount, but as I was added to the Bombshell and Phoenix Dynasty business building pages I became more intrigued and excited at not only what Beachbody could do for my health, but then also financially.
At about the fifth week of being a discount coach, I listened to a team call where a coach who had only been in the business right under two years was already making six figures. I had seen my up lines paycheck do nearly 2K per week which was impressive enough for me, but this coaches story connected with me on a level where I had the AHA moment. I thought if someone without a college degree, whose only job had ever been a waitress, and lived in a tiny Northwestern Idaho town could build a business of that magnitude in a couple of years I knew I could do it too. It was from that call that I started reading, watching and getting my hands onto anything I could to know more about Beachbody, to be a product of the product, and make this coaching gig a real job for me. I was excited because I love helping people and I realized I could do just that, while getting healthier myself and make a living at it. I knew it was not going to be a “get rich quick scheme,” but after hearing and seeing countless other newer Beachbody coaches stories of success I knew that God had given me an opportunity of a life-time.
In Beachbody they talk about creating Your WHY power, it is the motivation you need to keep going when you reach that 100th no or when it seems no one wants to join you in the fight against obesity. My WHY was two fold: I have a wonderful little boy who was born with a very rare bone and endocrine disorder called Albright’s Hereditary Osteodystrophy (to know more about my son’s story you can read parts of it here: Tristan Project. My son is currently in a research protocol for growth hormone in kids who test sufficient for growth hormone, but still their bodies do not grow or grow at such a slow rate. Without growth hormone my son would probably end up being under five feet tall. His protocol is losing it’s funding in the near future due to budget cuts and based on his dosage as of today each shot if we had to pay out of pocket is $60 a day. We cannot afford that and so growing a residual income for my son became a part of my why.
The other part of my reasoning for doing the business side of Beachbody coaching was to help our family climb out of debt faster and by doing that and making enough money to cover growth hormone shots it would give my husband the freedom to securely retire from the military without the worry of financial strain due to medical expenses.
Beachbody coaching is not about getting rich for me. Honestly I am not even looking at the money part yet, because I am so deep in love with helping people feel better about themselves. I pinch myself daily that I am a part of such a wonderful company and community of people who simply want to end obesity. If someone six months ago had told me I would become a Beachbody coach I probably would have first said “What is a Beachbody coach followed by I detest exercising so no way. Miracles happen everyday and I am proof of just that!”
