Sometimes life happens when you are truly least expecting it. Life happened for me on May 4th 2012 when I accepted the “Summer Slim Down Challenge” with my coach Nikki. Being 30 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, having an infant and an 18 month at home and going from a working woman to a stay at home mom was a huge transition for me. I really struggled with my body, confidence, identity and happiness. I truly wanted to be that happy mom you see on commercials and in parenting magazines but lets be honest I truly felt far from that. Nothing fit in my closet, my stomach was a cup of jello and I was doing what I thought was exercising regularly and eating right. Clearly I had no idea what the heck I was doing, because it wasn’t working! We didn’t have extra income to join a gym, get a personal trainer or take bootcamp classes so I had to figure it out on my own. I honestly felt like my hands were tied because we hardly had money each week to buy groceries. We went from a comfortable lifestyle with 2 incomes to 1 income being stretched and squeezed to the max. That can also add a little extra stress on the family dynamic too!

So joining the challenge group and making the decision to do Insanity was going to be my game changer. I just knew that I did not want to stay the same! I didn’t want to be that MOM that looked like a mom! I guess in my own mind I have this image of what I want to look and feel like and honestly I was far from it! So there starts my story as a challenger!!!!
Was it hard? YES! Changing your body is hard and lets face it we all want it to happen way faster than it actually does. So there were nights that I definitely stayed up shedding a few tears that my body was never going to change and that I was going to be stuck like this forever. But in reality that is not the case at all. It is just going to take consistency over time to bring about results and no matter what DON’T quit or give up!! So when I did eventually reach my goal weight it was SWEET because I knew that with the support of my challenge group, coach, the tips on clean eating, the accountability and the fitness programs that anybody could do it!!! I wanted to share that with others! It was NATURAL for me to share my favorite healthy recipes, my favorite snack ideas and tips!!! 🙂
I signed up to be a coach because I wanted to help other people feel the exact same way that I did. I wanted people to know that there was hope out there for them too! I wanted people to realize that no matter what they were not STUCK like this forever! I started with just helping 1 person transform their lives! I had no idea what social media marketing was and I never honestly had ever posted a SELFIE on Facebook before. Quite honestly I thought those people were crazy! I would only post about my kids and I never really used Facebook for anything other than watching what other people were doing!
But I signed up to coach to run groups and help people, but I was plugged into our team page and they had these weekly team calls which I decided to listen to! I heard people talking about success in their business, being at the top of the leader boards, of rank advancing, of earning income potential and my wheels started turning! It sparked something in me to say, “Why NOT ME?” I mean if they can do it, why can’t I?
So piece by piece and bit by bit I began setting small goals for myself, creating dream boards for my life and I started immediately! I picked up my very first personal development book, The Slight Edge by Jeff Olsen and my life was forever changed!
This business is truly about the small seemingly insignificant things that you repeatedly do (like take selfies) over time that compound to bring about success! So every day I chose to be as INTERESTING as possible on Facebook! Every day I would show up, tired, sick kids, lack of energy and do it anyways. I would share it all and my GOAL was to EMPOWER other people that followed me to know they could make a healthy lifestyle change too! GUESS what?! It worked! The compound effect took place and the more I talked to people the more they were inspired by my own dedication to my health and fitness and the more that they were encouraged and committed to joining along with me!!!
I didn’t have any networking skills and I had no idea about building a team. But I was passionate about helping people and I self taught myself the skills I needed to get the job done. I have grown a six figure income from my kitchen table working for any block of time I could steal away while it was nap time, before or after the kids got up! This business not only fit our lifestyle but it fit ME!!! I get a HIGH from seeing my customers have fitness results and now I get a HIGH from seeing my COACHES have success in the business too!
Over the past 4 years I have committed myself to my personal fitness goals but I am committed to helping each and every coach that joins my team to make this business FIT THEM!!! Beachbody is such a great platform, so no matter what your vision is for your future you can use Beachbody to make it come true.
Whether you are a stay at home mom, a full time working woman with a great job, a fitness instructor, a nutritionist, teacher, doctor or lawyer you can be a Beachbody coach! This business can literally keep you accountable to your health and fitness goals and it can create a seriously substantial income!! It’s up to you and you get to choose how little or how much you work which determines your bottom line!
You can be VERY successful with 1-2 hours per day and you can be a top 10 coach or more with a little more focused effort and consistency! The best part is that once you build this foundation in your business it is the gift that keeps on giving. You can at any point in time change your intensity, your efforts and you can continue to build a business that blesses you for the rest of your life.
I know it feels like its to good to be true and YES my husband was that GUY that said it was to good to be true~ But now he sees it! He knows what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it!!!
I want to teach you how to do it too!
So I’m kicking off the next week of what I am calling my “5 day sneak peak into what I do as a coach”. I’m running this closed Facebook group where only the members of the group can see what is being posted. I’m going to each day post a video that gives you information on:
1. How I got started.
2. What Coaching is all about and what do we actually do as a coach.
3. How to grow a network, get customers and use social media.
4. How do you make money as a coach and what is the potential and time commitment.
5. How to get started, what is the cost and what do I need to do first.
You will be able to ask questions, get answers and hear right from me how I built this business with zero experience!!!!
Are you interested?? Then hit me up by messaging me to get added to the facebook group! We will start on Monday the 18th.
