Turning A Fit Life Into A Paying Gig

Join Me! 
I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for 2 years now. I LOVE it. Why? I LOVE knowing that my business is a direct reflection of what I put into it. Period! No boss, no hours, no office politics…oh, and I get paid to workout & eat well. It motivates me like nothing else. I am SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL to have a business where my growth potential is unlimited but my overhead is minuscule and will never really increases.

I know direct sales, network marketing, MLM companies or whatever you call them get a bad rap, but I am 100% convinced that this is one of the most brilliant business models ever conceived IF you find a company, like Beachbody, with integrity and great products. Why?

- No product development
- No shipping, ordering, storing products, or returns
- Minimal overhead
- Success is direct reflection of how much you help others succeed
- Work from home
- Get choose WHO you work with
- You get OUT what you put IN
- CEO authority over how you run your business

When I became a Beachbody Coach, I did it for fun. I wanted to pay it forward to other women who where struggling & needed help. My passion for the business side of things flourished quickly & before I knew it, I had gone from a Stay At Home Mom to a Work At Home Mom. In the last two years, I’ve met some amazing people and had some amazing experiences that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I wouldn’t trade this business for anything. I love it. Really love it. No, I don’t always feel like doing it. Yes, I do it any way.

BUT listen! You cannot build a full time or six-figure income in two years by treating a business like a hobby. Why does no one ever talk about this? You CAN build a six-figure income in an insanely short amount of time working from home & doing something that you love if:

1. You are disciplined. Not just in your own fitness journey but in your business journey. You have to show up every day as the CEO and make the hard decisions, push yourself way out of your comfort zone, and be willing to fail.

2. You see the big picture & are patient. This business is about relationships. It’s about serving others, not building your income. It takes time for people to catch on to what you’re doing, to want to participate, to see that YOU are committed to this. It will happen if you are disciplined, but it takes time.

3. You are willing to commit 100%. If you’re not sure about this whole “coaching” thing, how do you expect others to be 100% sure about walking along side of you in their journey? I struggled with this at first big time. I was so nervous about being judged that I practically apologized for being a Coach before I said anything else! I’ve come a long way in that department. :)

These things come naturally to some people and not to others. It doesn’t matter what comes naturally to you. It ONLY matters that you are willing to work on developing the skills you need to succeed consistently, every day. I don’t have the fastest growing business in the world because I’ve got two toddlers at home, but it’s growing steadily & set to out earn my old attorney gig this year. Seriously? Seriously. I literally have to pinch myself some days – it seems to good to be true.

If any of the following describes you:

• Have the itch to start your own business
• Have a desire to work on your own fitness journey (no matter if you have 100 pounds to lose or are a fitness professional) & share it with others
• Are willing to carve out 45 minutes to an Hour every day to make your dream a reality so that you can live a life you design
• Are willing to be uncomfortable, disciplined, and consistent

I would like to personally invite you to join me tonight on a live webinar at 6:30 pst, 7:30 mst, 8:30 cst, 9:30 est. I will be sharing my coaching story in greater detail & explaining more about what Beachbody Coaching is all about. Plug in this URL address 5-10 minutes before the webinar and tune in with me (you can listen and watch, but don’t worry we can’t see you)! 

Find out more, no obligation, about what has been the biggest blessing, most fun venture, crazy amazing opportunity that has ever fallen into my lap!

What is Max Interval Training?

Max Interval Training

 

If you are considering completing one of the Beachbody fitness programs, there is a good chance that you will encounter the term max interval training or high intensity interval training (HIIT), as it is sometimes called.   And chances are you’ve heard of Insanity, the program that really put max interval training on the map!  Tabata workouts also incorporate this type of training.

 

Most exercise programs include some form of interval training. The program will require you to alternate between lower and higher intensity workouts or resting periods. For example, you might be asked to walk for a few minutes and then sprint for one, and then return to walking.

 

The difference with max interval training is that these actions would be reversed. You would sprint for several minutes and only rest for one. Most of the Beachbody max interval fitness programs are actually much more intense than that example.

 

Why Choose a High Intensity Interval Training Program?

 

These programs optimize your workout time. They require you to spend more time doing the higher intensity exercises and/or require more of these intervals. The end result is that you burn more calories than you would if you were doing lower intensity workouts for the same amount of time.

 

Max interval training is usually a favorite among people who want to really feel and see results from their workouts in a short period of time. This form of training is also great for people who want to improve their fitness, but do not have a lot of time to devote to exercising every day. Ace Fitness reports that high intensity exercise has also been linked to improved cardiovascular health.

 

Drawbacks of Max Interval Training

 

The obvious drawback of this type of fitness program is that it is challenging and requires dedication. To reduce the soreness that you will feel after doing one of these workouts, and to reduce the chance of injury, you should always stretch, warm up your muscles before beginning and do cool down stretches after each session.  You can also use Beachbody’s Results & Recovery  drink to help reduce soreness – it is specifically formulated to help you recover from tough workouts!

Tracking Your Weight Loss Progress Without Getting Discouraged

Tracking Weight Loss

When adopting healthy nutrition and exercise habits in an effort to lose weight, you want to see your hard work pay off almost immediately. You are putting in a lot of effort, and it can be discouraging to not see the results you want. The key is to know how to monitor your progress in a healthy and accurate way.

Tracking Your Choices

While it is not necessary to write down every single calorie you take in or burn off, food and exercise journals can be helpful. Make a note of when you are eating, what you are eating, and the portion sizes, and also keep track of your workouts.

These journals are not to cause you to criticize every little thing that you do. They are there to help you identify trends that could be helping or hurting your progress. These journals also hold you more accountable to yourself. You are going to be less likely to skip a workout or have a snack you don’t need, if these decisions are going to be recorded.

Give Yourself Time

One of the easiest ways to become discouraged is to weigh yourself every day; some people even weigh themselves multiple times each day. It takes time to change your body. You should wait a minimum of a week between weighing yourself. It is also important to note that your weight may be deceptive because you could be burning fat but building muscle mass as you tone your body.

Use Measurements To Track Your Progress

As alluded to above, the scale can be very misleading. The scale may not budge for 3 weeks, but chances are your measurements are changing. It’s important to know how to properly take your measurements so you can accurately track your progress as your body fat decreases and your muscle mass increases.

Assess Your Lifestyle

If you are working out, eating well, and still not seeing any change in your progress, you need to take a hard look at your lifestyle. Are you getting enough sleep? Drinking enough water? Are your stress levels high? All of these things affect your metabolism and ability to lose weight. It may be time to re-prioritize things so that you can take care of you.

Plateaus Happen

If you do not see the results that you want, this is still not a reason to become discouraged. It simply means that it is time to change your routine in some way. This is a time for you to look over your journals and look for a small, but significant improvement that can be made. A change as simple as extending your workouts by five minutes or eliminating something from your diet could be just the push you need to get over the plateau.
No matter what, remember that this journey is about progress not perfection. Stay positive and keep educating yourself. As long as you continue to make good changes in your life, you can’t fail!

Fitting Exercise into a Hectic Schedule

Fitting exercise into a a hectic scheduleIn the winter months when the temperatures are low people find plenty of excuses not to get the exercise they need (my hand is raised too!). It gets dark early and it’s just COLD outside.

One common complaint is that going to the gym is simply too much work. You have to set aside a huge block of time to go, work out, shower and drive home. The problem is, if you want to live a healthier life and have more energy, you need to find ways to fit in exercise.

The good new is, there are many easy ways that you can boost your activity levels throughout the day. You’ll feel better, lose weight, and sleep well!

Get Moving

Think of all of the opportunities you have to walk, but you do not. Instead of just letting your dog out into the yard, take him for a short walk around the neighborhood. If you are running errand, choose the parking spot that is farthest from the door. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Do 5-10 squats every time you use the restroom (I used to do this when I had a desk job!). Start looking for little ways to get in extra movement in your day and you’ll be surprised by how many openings you have!

Stretch and Flex at Work

Find some simple stretches that you can do at your desk at work, or any moments when you have a break. Stretching is just as beneficial and important as other types of exercise. Bend over to touch your toes for a few seconds, stretch your arms and shoulders, or do neck rolls.

You Do Not Need a Gym

A gym is awesome, but only if you A) have the time to get there, and B) know what the heck to do with all that equipment once you are there. There are many top-of-the line workouts that you can perform right in the comfort of your home. You can incorporate a 25 minute workout Focus T25  workout in the morning, when you get home from work or nearly any other time. These programs (and others like them) literally put some of the best personal trainers in your living room every single day for a fraction of what it would cost to hire someone with far less experience at the local gym.

Say goodbye to those excuses and hello to the new you!

Advantages of Having a Beachbody Coach

Advantages of having a Beachbidy CoachWhen people decide to do a Beachbody fitness program, one of the benefits that they enjoy is that they can workout in the privacy of their homes, with a top trainer, and easily fit exercising into their schedule. However, if you are using these materials as you work out, why do you need a coach?

Ensuring that You Have the Best Materials & The Best Price

There are dozens of amazing Beachbody programs to choose from so how do you decide? Choosing a program that is a great fit for your goals, current level, and preferences is key to your success. Your Coach will help you pick the program that is right for you so you don’t waste your time or money! She can also clue you in on the best deals on training materials. If it is possible to get a deal on Beachbody DVDs, she will be the one who can let you know about it.

Answering Your Questions

When doing any type of physical fitness routine, it is important for your safety that you are completing all of the exercises correctly. If you have any questions about the training or any particular routines, your coach can provide the guidance you need in order to get the best results. Additionally, you may have questions about which variation of the schedule to follow or questions about the nutrition guide. Those questions will get answered by your Coach.

Keeping You Motivated

When completing these fitness programs, it is essential to stay on track. The people who do not get the results that they wanted are often those who convince themselves that it will be okay to miss a days. Your Coach will plug you into an accountability group that will ensure you are staying on track daily so that you can reach your goals. When you do experience setbacks, your Coach will be there to show you how to get back on course.

Eating Healthy

To see the best long-term results from your fitness program, it is important to adopt healthier eating habits, as well. Many people find it difficult to follow the nutrition recommendations when completing these programs because it can be difficult to adjust and plan ahead. Your Coach can provide you with nutritional guidance to ensure that your body has the fuel it needs to succeed.
