Have you ever wondered what it’s really like to be a Beachbody Coach?
A Beachbody Coach is the same thing as an affiliate. Basically, you’re an independent rep of the Beachbody programs and product line.
Seven years ago I was introduced to Team Beachbody from a friend and fellow instructor at the gym. I had attended fitness trainings with Mindy Lawhorne and, on June 1, 2009, signed up as a Coach on her team.
I did not really know what I was getting into but loved Mindy and loved the community of other fitness professionals that were jumping on board. There wasn’t much to lose so I thought “why not?”
A few months before, in March, I had gone cold turkey vegetarian. I was on the hunt for a solid meal replacement that was not full of junk. Shakeology was released right when I became a coach and I was stoked for the Coach discount!
Over the first year my little fit fam community of Coaches and clients grew and I found my way into a full blown career in fitness. It’s been beautiful having total control over my schedule. Making some of THE coolest friends in the process.
In 2008 I was a stay at home mom who turned into a group fitness junkie. The next year I morphed into a trainer slash fitness instructor. By 2012 I was making plans to open my own gym. What a CRAZY ride! My Team Beachbody fam has been the backbone to my success.
As a stay at home mom I was motivated to take control of my health. As I did, others noticed and asked for my help, I chose to help, and continued to grow in my own personal development. As I learned more about health, fitness, and business I would share the lessons and my failures. Signing up as a Beachbody affiliate was a no brainer. That’s what Coaching was ALL ABOUT!
I started earning a little extra money with my affiliate account, paying for groceries, and eventually took over my car payment. Soon I was paying half of the utility bills. It’s been nice taking a chunk of the monthly bills off of my husbands plate. I feel like I’m contributing more to my family, friends, and community now. If it was not for my Team Beachbody affiliation I’m not sure I would have had what it takes to open my own gym.
The people I’ve met, the friendships I’ve developed, and the support to dream big has been priceless. This month we celebrate seven years as a TEAM. I love my Fired Up Fit FAMILY! No regrets!!!
