What is the 21 Day Fix??

21day fix collage

The 21 Day Fix is the newest fitness program on the market, scheduled to be released on February 3rd. It’s a totally unique concept in the fitness world for a few reasons – it’s exercise and nutrition COMBINED into one all inclusive program, you only workout for 30 minutes EACH DAY (!!) and you can see killer results in JUST 21 DAYS. This is virtually unheard of, especially since this is NOT a crash diet or an extreme starvation diet – it’s a sustainable, HEALTHY change and (big shocker!!): YOU CAN STILL HAVE DESSERT!

This rapid weight loss program gives you a nutrition guide with portion controlled containers, a workout program, plus the support and accountability of ME as your coach.

Yes, it’s true – now there is a program that makes losing weight so easy and simple to follow, you’ll never have to diet again! This is the 21 Day Fix, the newest breakthrough from Beachbody.

21 day Fix review

So what is the 21 Day Fix??

The 21 Day Fix program takes the guesswork out of weight loss. It’s a unique portion-control system combined with easy-to-follow 30 minute workouts that fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Trainer Autumn Calabrese shares her passion for food and fitness as she shows you how to make simple choices that add up to life-changing results.

I can’t even begin to share how stinking excited I am about this!! How many of us FEEL like we are doing everything we can but we just aren’t seeing any changes?? You’re going to the gym 3-5 times a week, you’re working hard than anyone there… you think you are eating healthy, but no results?? IT COULD BE SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS PORTION SIZES… And this program, the complete package, can help you pull it all together and finally see the results you are looking for!

As a top Team Beachbody coach, I got the chance to try this workout live during our annual Leadership conference in Dana Point, CA. I’m not going to beat around the bush… it was HARD. 30 minutes? Should be a piece of cake, right? But I was literally struggling to get through it (in a good way!) and I definitely felt it the next way. This isn’t an easy program… it’s designed to get results. Push through and there is NO WAY you won’t see a change in 21 days.

IMG_4572 IMG_4661

One truly awesome thing about the workout is the modifications. Every single workout has a modifier, so if you are just starting out on your fitness journey, that’s ok. A beginner CAN do these workouts. And if you are more advanced, you will follow the advanced instructor. Literally EVERYONE can benefit from these workouts. It is a positive and motivating workout and I will be ordering the MINUTE it is released.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the eating guide and I have to say, I have been BLOWN AWAY. It’s so simple, easy-to-follow and the way I feel since I have been following this plan is incredible. I have been eating pretty healthy for a while now, but having these guidelines has made a big difference in my bloating (!!) and in the way I feel. I’m really looking forward to having the actual containers to continue eating this way daily.

So how can you get your own copy of the 21 Day Fix?

For starters, go to my site and create a FREE account which makes ME your Beachbody coach. Then I will send you the details on the 21 Day Fix during the week of Jan 27th. I will be hosting an EXCLUSIVE test group for anyone who would like the support, guidance, motivation and accountability to start and complete the program.

If you want to be part of the test group, submit the application below to be considered for a spot in the group. The group will be only a SELECT group of individuals with are READY TO COMMIT to 21 days of focus and intensity. I will be right there with you to help you navigate the eating plan, to teach you how to plan your meals, to make it work for your life and most importantly, to keep you accountable.

The group is run through an online closed support group, which means no one but those participating in the group can see what is posted. I WILL NOT LET YOU FAIL! If you will invest in me, I will invest in you, your health, and your fitness. The only cost to you is the cost of the challenge pack which will include EVERYTHING you need to get started. It includes the 21 Day nutrition guide, the program manual, the workouts, the containers, Shakeology and a Shakeology Shaker cup, free shipping, a discounted price and ME as your coach for accountability, support, and guidance.

It took a HUGE wake up call for me to get started on a healthy lifestyle – cancer!! Having cancer made me realize I needed to change the way I was taking care of myself so I could be there to raise my kids… and this is something I want for ALL OF YOU. I want to help you TAKE CONTROL of your health so you can life a full healthy life with no regrets… so why not start now? Don’t wait for that wake up call… this is it! This is your chance to change your life. Why not now? Why not you? Be the next transformation!!

Who’s with me?!🙋🙋
Don’t wait until January to make your health a priority! Let’s get started!!

I am so excited to announce my 28 day “Merry Fitmas” fitness challenge group!

The holidays are fast approaching, which means it’s time to make some changes to your health and fitness. I am inviting you to join my event to learn more about my next group and how you can join me to get in the best shape of your life!

In the group, we will be using the 21 Day Fix to learn about healthy eating, moving our bodies and creating new habits. The first 7 days of the group is prep week (you don’t want to have to start your healthy habits during the week of Thanksgiving, right?!) where we will teach you how to shop for healthy food on a budget, learn how to plan time in your schedule to workout and meal prep and so much more. The last 21 days is when we start to put what we learned in prep week, into action! This is perfect timing for the holidays, as you’ll be feeling GREAT by Christmas!

You will be surrounded by other people who are working towards making healthy changes in their life, too. I can’t say enough about how much the group accountability helps as you go through this journey.

The group will be starting prep week on 11/23, but won’t start the actual eating/exercise plan until 11/30. Over the next few days I’ll be posting in this event to provide information and answer questions. If you have questions, never hesitate to post them in here or send me a message.

I only have TEN AVAILABLE SPOTS for new people in this group. If you’d like to reserve your spot today, comment below, join the facebook event or send me a message and we will go over the details!

What exactly IS Beachbody Coaching??

fitness business pic fitness is my business let's make it yours too amy allen star diamond beachbody coach mentorship opportunity work from home stay at home mom homeschool

Team determiNation is NOT just any team… these coaches have become my FAMILY!  

We work TOGETHER, we train together, and we grow from each others strengths!

I’m not a fitness expert or professional trainer but these program and products have helped me CHANGE MY LIFE!! And I am PASSIONATE about sharing them with others!  I help people…I CHANGE LIVES…like mine…like YOURS…

When you join our team… you join our FAMILY!

WHY BECOME A BEACHBODY COACH WITH team determiNation?

I truly think of our team as FAMILY!  We are among the fastest growing teams in Beachbody, adding more than 42 coaches last month alone.  The best part about this is we have developed an easy, duplicatable system that can get you similar results.  Coaches who have followed our system went from making nothing to earning $900, $1200, $1500 or even more in their first three months as a coach!  We have coaches QUITTING their full time jobs and using  income from Beachbody Coaching to replacing their full-time income in a little over a year.

As a Star Diamond Coach ranked in the top .01% of the Beachbody Network, I have grew my business from a hobby to a full time income in less than 3 years.  I now am able to continue to stay home and homeschool my 3 small children, stay healthy, and  earn extra income to do the things we want to do as a family but were limited to because of finances.  I get to socialize and help other people from the comfort of my own home.

Are you beginning to wonder what all of this Beachbody Coach buzz is all about?  Well, if so then this is the place to be.  Below I am going to outline what a beachbody coach is and why you might be the right fit to become part of team determiNation.

join team determination group pic family beachbody coaching

Team determiNation is a group of motivated individuals who provide support, motivation and encouragement to people on a daily basis to help them achieve the health and fitness goals.  I  provide free coaching advice and support to people who are enrolled as my customer or coach with a free Team Beachbody account.  As a coach, my job is to help you set realistic health and fitness goals.  Then, together we create an action plan.  I never focus on the big picture, instead we break it down into manageable smaller chunks.  We work to overcome things like emotional connections to food, traveling, meal planning, healthy snacks, and just plain motivation.  Everything that we need to be successful is right here.

Challenge groups are the best way to get to know customers and to help them on a daily basis.  A challenge group is all done through facebook.  Each participant purchases a Beachbody fitness program and commits to drinking Shakeology for at least one meal a day.  In return, I help you with meal planning, grocery shopping, planning and staying on track. The small group environment really works!

Now that my business is growing I also help my coaches that have joined my team to duplicate my success.  I do this through weekly mentoring calls, our coach closed facebook support group, and events all over the United States.  There is no greater feeling in the world than seeing your coaches succeed!!!

team determination beachbody coaching zoom call mentorship program

WHAT A BEACHBODY COACH ISN’T…

Being a Beachbody Coach ISN’T a Get Rich Quick Scheme. It is hard work and you get out the effort you put in. So if you aren’t willing to put in the time and effort you aren’t going to succeed. All my coaches can tell you I live by the MOTTO “Be Here in A YEAR”… that means give this business 100% for a year and you will be AMAZED! Are you ready to change your life and the lives of countless others? What are you waiting for?

 

BUT… What’s the COST?

  • There is a one time fee of $40 to become a Beachbody coach.  This is not a yearly or reoccurring fee.  You can also get that $40 fee waived if you sign up with a challenge pack or you or your spouse is active military then that fee is waived! (I can explain those options in more depth as well).
  • There is a monthly website fee of $15. Beachbody gives you three canned websites where you can do some minor personalization. One site is a Beachbody Coach site ,one is a  specialized Shakeology site (only available for sale through the Team Beachbody Coach network) and the third is your Ultimate Reset Site.  I have decided to create my own website and blog to share my experiences but it is not required.
  • To remain an active coach you need to have a Personal Volume (PV) of 50 points per month. For example, purchasing a month’s supply of Shakeology (at a 25% discount) is 90PV – boom,  you’re done. Truly, I agree that you need to use the product in order to be able to explain the benefits and share it with others. Plus, their supplements are actually really tasty 🙂

BENEFITS!!

  • You receive a 25% commission on anything somebody buys from Beachbody using one of your links. Somebody purchases a copy of P90X, you get a check for $29.96.
  • You can, if you choose to, create a team of coaches as well.  You can create a business based off of a team of people who are passionate about the same things that you are.  I tend to attract women who are passionate about health and fitness,specifically clean eating stay at home momma’s. But I also have some individuals who want to grow a business and create a full time income!  The saying you attract who you are is completely true!
  • You receive a 25% discount on all Beachbody products including merchandise. If you’re using supplements, just the discount savings alone on let’s say P90x Protein Bars and P90X recovery drink covers the $15 monthly website fee.
  • You get paid on a weekly basis, every Thursday morning!
  • No inventory to carry, Beachbody takes care of everything.
  • Access to an entire team of experts on health and fitness.
  • Access to marketing materials and guidance on how to build your business.

HOW DO YOU SUCCEED?

You succeed at being a Beachbody Coach by putting the needs of others first.  By reaching out to people and offering your support and guidance. To succeed you follow the structure of inviting people to a challenge group, enrolling them into the group, helping them succeed and then eventually people become coaches as well!  You succeed by leading by example, inspiring others to get into shape and by being motivated, driven and passionate about what you do!  Of course, you don’t have to know all the answers at first.  You just have to be motivated to get started!!!

WHO IS THE COMPANY BEHIND THE COACH BUISNESS OPPORTUNITY?

Beachbody is a successful 10-year-old, $250+ million corporation based in Southern California. They create and sell the nation’s most popular in-home fitness and weight-loss products—high-quality, well-manufactured DVD workout programs, gear, and nutritional supplements that have been proven to work. When you become a Beachbody Coach, you’re teaming up with a solid, stable company and a best-selling brand.

HOW DO I EARN MONEY?

You get paid weekly commissions when people buy Beachbody products and Team Beachbody Club memberships through your personal website. You can also earn cash bonuses based on your team’s sales.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO BEGIN?

It only costs $39.99 to start a Beachbody business. That includes your first month’s Business Services Fees and your Coach Business Kit, which comes with everything you need to begin earning income.  Or, what I recommend, you can choose to purchase a challenge pack in which you get a fitness program of your choice, 30 day supply of Shakeology, free shipping and  a 30 day trial of the club membership and the coach fee is waived!

DO I NEED TO BE A FITNESS EXPERT?

No, you don’t need to be a fitness or weight-loss expert to become a Beachbody Coach. You just need to be ready to commit to changing your life and inspiring others to do the same.  It is important to be a product of the product!

WHAT KINDS OF HELP AND SUPPORT WILL I RECEIVE?

Once you become a coach on team determiNation, you will be added to our closed facebook team page.  There you will receive updates, information, tips and tools to help you grow your business.  This is your place to check in each day and get answers to your questions.
You also will be given the option to be a part of my coach mentorship program.  This is a 28 day group that teaches you everything you need to know about running a challenge group – how to find people to invite AND how to run a successful challenge group.  You will be given all the tools that helped me to be successful so that you do not have to re-invent the wheel.

You will not have to figure it out on your own.  You do not run your first challenge group by yourself.  Instead you are an assistant coach in your first group.  I run the challenge but you get to invite 3-5 customers into the group!

WILL I HAVE TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS FOR RESALE?

Unlike marketing programs that require you to buy a lot of products in order to participate, the Coach Opportunity has no inventory requirements. If you do want to purchase products for your own use or resale, you’ll get them at a significant discount.

I encourage everyone to be a product of the product.  I truly believe that the best coaches are the ones that are actively working out and are drinking Shakeology.  It’s very hard to speak from experience and guide other people if you yourself have never tried it.

HOW DOES BEACHBODY PROMOTE ITS PRODUCTS?

Beachbody spends millions of dollars every week advertising our home fitness programs on the major TV stations and cable networks. (You’ve probably seen our famous infomercials for programs such as P90X, Turbo Jam, and Hip Hop Abs, as well as our magazine and Internet ads.) Millions of people already know about Beachbody, and every time we run an infomercial, we get thousands of new customers. We want those customers to shop through your store, so you get the commission on those sales!

HOW MUCH OF A DISCOUNT WILL I GET ON MY OWN BEACHBODY PRODUCTS?

As Beachbody Coach, you receive a 25% discount on all Beachbody products available in the Team Beachbody store.

You don’t have to start coaching alone!  It is my job to provide you with the tools to succeed!

Do you struggle with debt?

beachbody coaching opportunity money money from hoe homeschool mom part time

This isn’t a part of my life I like to talk about… but I remember the day I applied for food stamps. We were already receiving WIC checks. Matt and I were so young, living on one income while I finished school, and we had this sweet new baby to take care of…

Have you ever had the feeling of not being able to afford formula for your baby? If you haven’t, let me just say that it was a pretty low moment for us.

Back then, most of our arguments happened over money, debt and the fact that I didn’t always handle money the greatest.

To be honest, that’s an area I’m still working on.

When Matt would get promoted or when our income increased, we increased our lifestyle right along with it. The battle of never ending stress just kept coming and then it three years ago, my battle with cancer.

I knew things had to change. I didn’t know at the time what this disease meant for my family but I knew I had to fight to get better. I wanted be there to raise my kids. I wanted to be around to take care of my family.


I saw a friend posting about Shakeology. The price tag was STEEP. Was it in our budget? Definitely not… but I knew I needed to sacrifice somewhere to invest in my health. If you’ve never thought about dying, never thought you might not be there to watch your kids grow up… It’s scary. And somewhere inside I thought this was the answer.
I became a coach to save 25% off my monthly dose of super-foods… because every penny counts right? I’m not sure why as moms we always put ourselves last but this was ONE moment I couldn’t afford to do that.

Three years ago that ONE decision made a huge impact on not just improving my health but also on our family’s financial future.

This Thursday, I was able to walk into the bank, hand them a $13,000 dollar check and PAY OFF our van, all because I’ve helped other people through their own struggles.

I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be a six figure earner with Beachbody, let alone building up a savings account to help attack our debt.

Are we out of debt? Not yet. However I can see a light at the end of the tunnel doing something that I love. I see a future that is debt free all while Matt still remains the amazing provider that he is serving our country.

I almost didn’t share this post. I never want to come across as bragging but when I shared it privately with my team, I had an out pour of “You are going to share this, RIGHT?!?!” I prayed about my intentions even before sharing and I know in my heart it’s to show there is hope within struggles.

I hope if you are struggling in ANY area of your life, know that there IS always a solution somewhere.

I decided just SIX weeks ago to save my next SIX paychecks and whatever it would be would go towards our van. I was floored to see I have MORE than I needed to say goodbye to that debt forever!

What I get to do while still homeschooling our children is the bridge between living a comfortable life with some debt that 80% of Americans currently have and true freedom to realize it won’t always be that way. From one decision I made just 3 years ago… which was simply putting myself first so I could be the best wife, mother, teacher and mentor to others.

You don’t have to be in debt.

You CAN put yourself first.

It just starts with a decision that you are worth it.

If you are ready to make that decision, NOW is the perfect time…

Announcing the Spring into Summer Slimdown!

spring into summer slimdown beachbody challenge 21 day fix shakeology accountability free coach amy allen

The school year is almost over… SUMMER IS COMING…

Are you prepared?

Are you ready to break out the summer clothing?

Are you feeling good about having the energy you need to keep up with your kids all summer long?

If you answered NO, that’s ok!  YOU STILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME…  And I have a plan.

 

You are officially invited to SPRING CLEAN your diet and get ready for SUMMER!

Let me be perfectly honest here… I’m not talking about cleaning and organizing your house… you’ll have to look somewhere else for that type of advice!  I’m talking about taking a look in your PANTRY and your FRIDGE and acquiring the tools to have a healthy, happy and confident summer.

How does it work?  

Come join me as I help you learn how to change your life using the 21 Day Fix or the 21 Day Fix Extreme.

PiYo Combined with the 21 Day Fix for a total of 70 Pounds lost!!

This is ALL from multiple rounds of the 21 Day Fix! Crazy Impressive, right?

When you sign up for my challenge group you don’t just get a bag of Shakeology and a fitness program!  You will connect with other women in an closed online accountability group and you’ll have one on one support from me.

Before you even start the program, you’ll get an entire week of planning and prep with me so you’ll be ahead of the game before we even start.  I help you write goals, we do pics and measurements, and we talk about meal planning in depth.

During the group, each day you will log in, read the daily post, then post your stats to keep you focused on your journey!

Guess what?  You will WANT to quit… and that’s why I’m here!  I will help you stay focused and accountable so this program doesn’t become something else that sits on the shelf and never gets opened.  This time it will be different!

First, you are committed to replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the program.  Shakeology is not your typical protein shake – it’s meal replacement to keep you full, to give you natural energy, to curb cravings for sweets, and to keep you healthy! It’s what I drank daily during chemo to keep my energy up, keep me nourished, and keep me regular.

We all have GREAT intentions – especially during summer break – to eat healthy, cook and prepare only healthy meals each day but let’s be honest:  That’s not real life with kids.  When life happens, instead of stopping at Starbucks or another fast food option, you can grab a shaker cup, water and Shakeology!  Breakfast on the go minus the stuff that keeps you from reaching your goal.  It’s nutrition in a glass and it’s so easy!  Give me a summer of Shakeology and I will teach you how to plan your meals, make better choices and at the end of the group, you can decide if you want to continue.

For 30 days, you will be committed to working out, focusing on nutrition, and participating in our online accountability groups.  My coaching is FREE and comes with meal plans, my favorite recipes, and lots of motivation.

Homemade Fruit Rollups!

Part of my mother’s day present included lots of new plants – including 2 flats of strawberries.  It’s be a while until we start picking them, but I wanted to share this fun recipe for a healthy, sweet fruit treat that kids will love (and it’s also 21 Day Fix approved!!).

INGREDIENTS
5 cups fresh fruit
1/2-1 Tbsp honey (optional)

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 225.

2. Blend fruit and honey in blender until very smooth.

3. Pour mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets (I usually use 2) and spread until thin. You want it to be very even so it will cook evenly. Otherwise, you will have some dry parts and other burned parts!

4. Remove from oven when the rollups are not stick (about 2-3 hours). Let cool then slice and roll!

Homemade Organic Salsa

I’m about to let you in on a little secret… the world’s best salsa is actually homemade, organic, and way too easy.

I discovered this recipe from a friend about ten years ago.  (Wow, it makes me feel old to admit that.)  Matt and I had it at a party, and it was so good, we purchased a food processor for the express purpose of making this salsa.

It only has 5 ingredients and virtually no prep.  Prepared to have your mind and tastebuds blown.

Ingredients:

2 cans organic diced tomatoes (you could use fresh if you have them.  I’ve always made it this way, and you know what they say about an old dog)

3-4 organic green onions

1 bundle of organic cilantro

4-5 cloves of organic garlic (this is subjective.  Matt and I like a lot of garlic.  You could start with one and keep adding/tasting until you get to the garlic level you prefer).

1 organic jalapeno, seeded

Now here is where it gets amazing – because it’s just so easy.

 

Step 1 – Roughly chop the green veggies/peel the garlic and throw it all in the food processor.

Step 2 – Pulse for a few seconds until the veggies are all minced.

Step 3 – Add in the tomatoes.

Step 4 – Blend and taste.

You can keep adding garlic or jalapeno to get the taste you are looking for.  It does get tastier as it sits in the fridge, but that’s it!

How easy is that?  And the really cool part – it’s 100% 21 Day Fix approved – all natural, organic salsa that you can use to fill up a green container.  You can also use this salsa to make the dressing for my Taco Salad!

Next week, I’ll show you how to use your leftover salsa (if you have any!) to make some tasty guacamole!

Enjoy!

Is portion control just a gimmick?

I am an avid believe that learning appropriate portion sizes is so important when it comes to controlling our weight.

Many people believe portion control is a current fad and mostly unnecessary. For those who do attempt portion control, “eyeballing it” seems to be the preferred way to measure… and more often than not, our view of appropriate size portions is extremely unrealistic.

But is portion control just a gimmick? According to some researchers, NO! it’s not!

*A recent study from the University of New South Wales concluded that more than any other factor, the size of the serving is what determines how much we eat. Simply put, large servings make us eat more, even when we already know that this will happen…

I think most of us are aware that portion sizes in restaurants and even in our homes have increased considerably over the years. It seems from this study that even knowing this, we still consume the larger portions.

portion control funny meme apply gimmick 21 day fix challenge

If you have trouble with this and really want to apply this study on portion control in a restaurant, for example, don’t wait until they put the double-sized portion in front of you: tell them to cut it in half in the kitchen and box half of it to give you later when you are leaving.

As for applying it at home, plate the food in the kitchen in the appropriate portion for each individual, not serving family-style at the table. Do not make enough for leftovers, unless you are planning on having it for other meals, and in this case, package and store the food before sitting down to eat.

Another great option for implementing portion control is the 21 Day Fix.  On first glance, the containers look tiny (!!) and unlike they would be able to hold enough food to fill you up, but surprisingly, I have NEVER been hungry following the 21 Day Fix portion control meal plan.

If you want to try portion control at home and have someone hold you accountable to your goals…  I’m your girl!

Whether you want to:

  • lose weight
  • gain energy
  • commit to a healthier lifestyle

I can help you with all those things in my 21 Day Fix Challenge!

In the group, I’ll share 21 of my favorite crock pot meals, and you’ll get the results you are looking for or your money back, guaranteed.

Studies Show Accountability Partners Help You Achieve Greater Success!

hey you want to be my accountability partner amy allen challenge group 21 day fix benefits

What is the number one reason people order a program like P90X, Insanity, or the 21 Day Fix and never even open the box?

No accountability.

When customers order from an infomercial or website with no coach, no support, and no accountability, odds are pretty high that the box won’t even be opened… and if it is, chances are even lower that you’ll finish 1/3 of the program.

That’s where people like me come in! As your personal coach, I’m here to make sure you DO open that box, that you DO commit to the program, that you DO finish it and get the awesome results you are looking for.

Check out these benefits of accountability from The Art of Simple:

If your “accountability partner” has set the same goal as you, a little bit of friendly competition can go a long way. Last year, some friends of ours both decided they wanted to lose weight. They created their own Biggest Loser competition, and the one who lost the highest percentage of weight at the end of 8 weeks was declared the winner. Knowing they were competing for a prize (even just the prize of being able to say “I won!”) helped them both stay on track and achieve their individual goals.

2. ENCOURAGEMENT TO KEEP GOING

Sometimes we attach so much significance to achieving a goal that when we experience a setback — which is inevitable at some point along the way — we just throw our hands up in the air and decide that the goal isn’t worth pursuing after all. An outside party can encourage you during setbacks and plateaus or when you experience a lack of motivation, helping you look past the momentary failure to see the bigger goal.

3. AN HONEST LOOK

If an accountability partner is just patting you on the back or nodding their head when you make excuses, then they’re not really holding you accountable after all. An important part of being accountable to someone is giving them permission to be honest with you. They should be comfortable telling you when you’ve gotten off track or pointing out areas where you may want to focus more of your efforts.

4. IDEAS AND INSPIRATION

Sometimes, you may look for someone who is more of a mentor than an accountability partner. If they’ve walked the road before you and achieved the goal you’re striving for, they can share ideas, tips and experiences that will help you along the way.

… At the end of the day, just knowing that someone is going to ask you how you’re doing with a goal or resolution can be the extra bit of motivation you need to stay on track.

When you subtract the amount of hours you sleep, work, and commute, you probably don’t have more than one, maybe two hours per day to do what you would like to do, and that’s if you have the money and energy to do it!

I have been working as a coach for Beachbody for about 3 years now. I started when I was going through chemotherapy and drinking Shakeology really helped me during my treatments. It’s a quality product that I love and believe in. I never expected that this would be the start of a career for me, but having cancer was a wake up call for me.  I wanted to be around to take care of my kids, and having cancer made me realize that I needed to change the way I was eating, exercising, and taking care of my body.

I started running monthly challenge groups for my friends and family, to help them start exercising, eating clean, and taking care of themselves.  I wanted to pass on what I had learned to everyone that I knew.  I watched my friends start getting results, feeling better about their health and becoming more confident.  Aside from being a mom, it’s the most fulfilling job I’ve ever had.

By the end of my first year as a coach, I was making as much as I used to make at my full time job, before I stopped working to stay at home with my kids. By this summer, I had doubled that amount. I’m on track to be making a six figure income this year, working from home.  In my first year, I also ended up earning a free trip to Disneyworld with my family and then another one to Argentina.  In my second year, I earned a trip to Dana Point California and a cruise to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.

I started out working 1-2 hours per day and now I work 3-4 on a long day. The extra income we have has allowed us to become financially free on a military income and we are able to live without stress about money.
