Misconceptions of Becoming a Beachbody Coach

There are so many pre-conceived notions and here are just a few I’d like to clarify:

1. I’ll have to push products on family and friends.
No way! If that were the case, I never would’ve joined! The way I run my business and train my team to run theirs, it’s NOT about pushing products and hopefully you can see/feel that in my social media feed. We all have someone in our circle who’s doing this (pushing products and being annoying) and the thought of being THAT person makes us cringe. BELIEVE ME, this is not like that.. not on MY team anyway. I specifically train my team to inspire, help and lead by example …and that is not only what is so fulfilling about this but it WORKS to build a solid, thriving, legit business. I have 6-figure earners AND 7-figure earners (income per year) on my team to prove it 🙂

2. I would need a fitness following or know a lot of people to make this work.
Nope. We all start from ground zero with few people in our lives who are on a fitness journey like we are. You LEARN from the Coach you join, how to build a like-minded network after you join. Who ever you are and whatever you’ve been through – there are people who relate to YOU (more than they’ll relate to someone else). I didn’t even know how to use Facebook when I started my business! If you join me, you get start-up training, ongoing training from me personally and other top coaches. I focus on Social Media training a LOT. You have access to me one-to-one, my trainings and my training site. I teach my team how to use Facebook and other social media sites to BUILD a like-minded network and help those who WANT help.

3. I would need a lot of extra time and not be working full-time to fit this in.
No, most on my team (and myself included) started building this business as we were working full-time, demanding jobs. I won’t say that being a mom, working full-time and on top of all of that, building a business, is EASY.. but it’s most definitely do-able if you are committed and love helping people in fitness anyway. All of my coaches who are now my TOP Coaches, began this as they were working full-time .. and many are mom’s as well (which is the big, important job #1 😉 !)

4. I don’t want to drink Shakeology, therefore I probably couldn’t be successful.
Not true. You can be successful even if you don’t start your coaching business drinking Shakeology. BUT, for your own results and health (and for the health and results of those you’re helping), I’d highly recommend you look further into why so many of us are obsessed with it. When I first heard the price of Shakeology, I thought it was a typo! I thought CEO Carl Daikeler had lost his mind! I was comparing it to a PROTEIN SHAKE and at the time, I wasn’t even keen on drinking protein shakes. I was just uneducated and I hadn’t yet tried a recipe I was in LOVE with. For years now, I’ve been in LOVE with the results and the taste! Now I definitely believe Shakeology is priced extremely reasonably and so worth it. I’d cancel my cable & sell a pair of shoes every month if I had to. I’d drink it daily (and sometimes twice daily) even if I wasn’t a coach.

5. I think I need to be more fit so others will take me seriously.
Most of my top coaches have joined when they were just getting back into their fitness and THIS business helped them stay more accountable to that mission. But also realize, at the core of what causes us to be inspired by someone is watching them OVERCOME their own struggles/habits/fears – progress inspires. If you are struggling, great, you’ve got a HUGE opportunity to get to work on yourself and show PROGRESS. The RIGHT kind of people are not envious of that journey, they are inspired by it.. even if they are more fit; it’s inspiring to see such progress. Everyone WANTS progress even if they’re not ready to commit to the work yet. When they are ready to commit, they will come to you as that person they know, like and TRUST. In this business, you are not advertising your BODY, you are building relationships and connecting with people one-to-one. Success in this business will depend on who you ARE, not what you look like.

6. This is one of those pyramid things, where only those at the top make money.
Oh boy.. this one drives me NUTS and makes me CRINGE.. because it’s so not true and anyone who thinks this is completely lacking knowledge about how this compensation structure is designed and is saying that based on some past experience/knowledge of some OTHER business. But .. I have to admit, when I heard of this, my mind went there too. But luckily, I put my stubborn-ness aside and looked deeper. Yes, the structure of this is like a pyramid. So is ANY organizational structure of ANY company you will work for. But with this, the people at the bottom (unlike in a normal business structure) can make MORE than the people at the top and that happens all the time! Have you ever heard of an hourly employee making more than the Directors and Exec’s of a company – very doubtful. Yet, in this business, someone that is hundreds or even thousands of levels beneath me has the SAME opportunity I had coming into this. With this compensation structure, EACH COACH is at the top of their own pyramid. You are the boss; you put into it as little or as much as YOU want to get out of it.

Those are the top misconceptions and I felt compelled to clarify 🙂

Here’s a helpful interview with CEO Carl Daikeler that might give insight as well:

What’s your excuse??

What’s your excuse??

I already know all the excuses because I was the queen of them for years… It’s raining out, it’s too nice out, my workout clothes are dirty, I forgot my headphones at home, I don’t have time, I don’t want to get bulky, I’m too tired…blah blah blah. The real question to ask should be what’s your REASON?

My before picture is just after finishing my doctorate. I did not regularly exercise. I held baby weight after each pregnancy. I was constantly exhausted and used the excuse that chasing the children around was enough exercise. I came down with every cold and virus that could fester and spread on the grocery cart handle. I was miserable and avoided any pictures with my children – which now in hindsight is just plain sad for them and me. I went to bed miserable every night because I failed at what I had sworn that morning I would do – which was to make better food choices and get to the gym. It was an ugly vicious cycle and the effects of my misery did not go unnoticed by my family. 

Finally, one morning I woke up and said I am done talking about it -(I felt my back fat jiggle) and from that day on I started living it and being about it. There have been setbacks, struggles and tears but the truth is, once I started getting up and consistently working out in the mornings, it made me want to make better choices all through the day, including in the kitchen. My energy levels became increasingly better and I slept like a rock all night. My moods were much happier and instantly improved my family life and relationships. It would be a straight up lie if I said I wasn’t motivated to rock a bikini at my age but I also realized these kids in my life really were MY WHY and they needed and deserved a happy, healthy, active mom who could step up and be their healthy role model. When I found my reasons why, I simply lost all of my excuses.

My decision to coach keeps pushing me further, keeps me motivated and providing goals but it is very far from my reason why I continue to live this lifestyle.

So instead of looking for your excuse, are you able to dig deep and find YOUR reasons WHY? When you do find your why and your passion, your results will follow. Message me for help.11042942_947364438631658_7105274840541815394_n

I LOVE push-ups!!! You can, too!

Guess What? I LOVE push-ups!! I know it sounds goofy and I would have never said that a year ago. It is seriously an incredible move that challenges and tightens your entire body…sculpts arms, strengthens and tightens the core, shapes your butt and just BOOM!!! So I threw these babies in while I watched TV at night with the kids or when I was waiting for water to boil for dinner.

Try it…you can start out doing it on the wall and move to your knees as you get stronger and before you know it…up on your toes.

See, it’s not all or nothing. Little changes like this add up over time. Just promise me you won’t let your head sag. Big no-no. Look 3 inches or so in from of you so you can keep your spine in line….FORM is King 

Now go EMPOWER yourself with some push-ups today!yespushup

If you never try, you’ll never know

Totally putting myself out there!! The pic on the left is how I looked a month into my realization that something in my life had to change. Is there something that you want to do or try, but you’re too afraid? I tackled a couple of my fearsover the past few years. I was really scared to try coaching, but I did it! Changing habits is a little scary for me, too! Not only did I do it…but I grew to love how good I feel! YIKES! It certainly helps when you have people cheering for you and encouraging you! You just have to ask yourself, what’s the worst that can happen? Maybe you’ll fail. But maybe you won’t! I’m a ‘maybe-you-won’t-fail’ kinda gal.

If you are inspired to reach your goals send me a message. We can be on this journey together.

Today is a great day to make a new start

Goodbye love handles. Hello Sexy Abs!

Are you sick of muffin tops and love handles, or are you comfortable with the roll of flab that pops over the waistband of your jeans and ruins the sleek line of fitness clothes, clingy sweaters, and tailored shirts.

A lot of people think that they can get rid of this annoying bump with daily sit ups. While crunches do tone muscles this exercise alone will not get rid of love handles. Do you know why? Well it’s because love handles aren’t muscle. They’re fat, and to burn fat you need a healthy diet and a rigorous cardiovascular program.
A good overall plan for 30 to 45 minutes of cardio three to four times a week, strength training (including the exercises below) two to three times a week, and a day of rest every week so your body can rebuild muscle. Spice up your workouts with a variety of cardio approaches will be the most effective — don’t just stick to only the elliptical or just a few spinning classes. Getting stuck in a cardio routine can lead to a plateau. Instead, you want to keep challenging different muscle groups. My personal favorite high-intensity interval training to burn fat is TurboFire. You get results quicker instead of working at the same steady pace throughout your workout.
Your initial goals will be weight loss and trimming down the fat. Once you’ve done that — or at least made significant headway — you can start to tone the muscles underneath your love handles. As you burn fat and increase your metabolism through building muscle, that extra padding will eventually go away.

Ab Workout: Kiss Love Handles Goodbye

Make these five exercises part of your plan to tone waist and hips:
1. Bicycle Crunches: “This exercise will work your internal and external obliques as well as the rectus abdominis [the largest ab muscle],” Keigher says.
Lie on your back, knees bent.
Place hands behind your head without interlacing your fingers. Lift your head slightly.
Twist so that your left elbow goes toward your right knee while you extend your left leg.
Pull your leg back in and extend the other leg, twisting so that your right elbow goes toward your left knee.
Build up to 3 sets of 25 reps each.

2. Standing Trunk Twists
Stand with your feet about hip-width apart.
Keep hips and legs facing forward as you twist to the right, extending your left arm out (like a punch) to the right.
Twist in the opposite direction (left), extending your right arm out in a punch to the left.
Aim for 100 repetitions.

3. Lying Leg Twist
Lie on your back with your arms stretched out to the sides, hands flat on your mat.
Lift legs and bend knees so that your calves are parallel to the floor and your thighs form a 90-degree angle with your torso.
Lower both legs together to one side so that your outer right thigh touches the ground on the right side, maintaining the 90-degree angle.
Return them to center and then lower to the other side so that your outer left thigh touches the ground.
Build up to 3 sets of 25 reps each.

4. Side Planks: “This exercise strengthens your core, in the front and the back,” Nasser explains.
Lie down on your right side, leaning on your elbow.
Extend your legs out straight, with your feet stacked. The edge of your right foot should be on the floor.
Use your core to hold your body up in a straight line (you can modify it by putting your right knee down on the floor if you need support). Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, or longer if you can.
Lower yourself fully to the floor and switch sides.
For added challenge, lift the top leg and hold it up so that it is not touching the bottom leg.
Holding each side for about 30 seconds, do four or five reps, and increase as you get stronger.

5. Seated Russian Twists
Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat.
Hold your arms out in front of you, hands pressed together.
Lean back about 45 degrees. With a slow, controlled movement, twist to your left side. Return to center, and twist to your right. That’s one rep.
One full rep should take about 20 seconds. Take a breath and repeat. Start with four to five reps, adding more reps as you get stronger.
For an added challenge, lift your feet off the floor as you do this exercise.
If you eat a healthy, low fat diet and burn more calories than you take in, and enjoy a good mix of cardio and ab workout time, you’ll watch your love handles start to melt away within a few weeks.

Fitness tips to get the MOST out of your workouts

weight training

English: Exercise work zones (Fox and Haskell ...

English: Exercise work zones (Fox and Haskell formula between 20 and 70-year-old): red zone (VO2Max), anaerobic, aerobic, weight control and warming up.

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

1.     Get comfortable. Make sure that you have the right clothing and shoes to perform your exercise routine.

2.     Buy a heart rate monitor with a calorie counter to help motivate you and keep your heart rate at 80-85% of your maximum heart rate while working out.

3.     Set goals so that you can measure achievement and make a contract with yourself that is posted someplace you see daily. This will serve as a reminder to keep you on track.

4.     Schedule your daily workouts and stick to it.  This is non-negotiable! If you are asked to do something at your scheduled workout time, say, “Thanks for thinking of me, but I already have something scheduled then. Can we do it another time?” If there is no getting out of it, then find another time that day to workout.  Morning workouts are the easiest to stick to and make sure they are at least 30 minutes long.

5.     Have a support system of like-minded people that will motivate and encourage you. That’s why my challenge groups have been so successful.

6.     Mix up cardio and resistance training

7.     Ramp up the music. You will move faster and burn more calories.

8.     Make sure you are well hydrated before working out so you don’t get a muscle cramp.  If you don’t like to drink water before your workout make sure you get at least 80 ounces through the day.

9.     Eat a mix of protein and carbs for energy and record your nutritional intake in a log. I love myfitnesspal.com.

10.    Exercise needs to be a daily habit. No excuses.  Vary your workouts to keep your body guessing and keep your mind engaged. Find workouts that are fun for you to do and log them. Beachbody has a great system to keep track of these.

11.    Have some caffeine 40-45 minutes before working out.  I like energy and endurance because there is less than 200mg of caffeine in it. This can help stabilize your blood sugar, mobilize fat stores and heat up your metabolism.

12.    Find a way to reward yourself when you reach a goal. But, skip unhealthy rewards that may get you off track, such as junk food.

Don’t let summer binging wreck your hard work!

By: portions why Jillian Michaels.

Don’t let summer get togethers and picnics destroy your new diet and fitness goals. Here are a some tips to help keep you on track and you’ll feel better, too!

It’s Memorial Day weekend and summer is kicking off, even though we had snow in my neck of the woods yesterday. That means, summer foods, drinks, outfits – and challenges. Summer can throw people off their game plan because it seems fun to join in with the crowd, but it doesn’t have to.

Alright, so let’s break down the biggest issue — food. I’m not going to call names, but some of you are planning on hitting a barbecue on the weekends. Am I right? I can envision the usual spread. Burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, corn on the cob, potato salad, chips, cookies, chips, snack foods — the whole nine yards. Anyone thinking they’ll have a run in with an ice cream cone, icy, or a fruity, syrupy frozen drink too? Yeah, I thought so.

Let’s keep it simple. You can’t expect the world to be on the same page as you when it comes to your nutrition plan and goals. You also can’t expect to find a bounty of healthy, organic, and nutrient-packed foods at your friend’s cookout, your neighborhood block party, or along the beach boardwalk. You will need to plan what you’ll eat or what you’ll bring, and how you’ll respond to tempting situations before you face them.

You can bring healthy dishes to the cook out, snacks in your cooler for the beach and you can make smart decisions to skip the mayo-heavy potato salad. Preparation is the only way to know you’ll stay in control and won’t undo the good work you’ve started. Got it? It’s been said that “Discipline is about choosing between what you want now and what you want most!” This weekend, it’s all on you. What kind of summer will you have? One of regret and disappointment in yourself — or one that keeps you moving you towards your ultimate healthy goals? I know all of my rockstars will make the right decisions.

What fun summer plans do you have lined up? What’s your strategy to have a blast while staying on-track? Here are a few summery dishes to keep in mind this weekend.
