When I first signed up to be a Beachbody coach, I never thought that I would experience a mental shift as quickly as I have. Not only have I physically changed thanks to the amazing accountability but I have also mentally changed.
Becoming a Beachbody Coach is about so much more than sales and hitting sales goals. In fact, that is probably the last thing anyone on my team will tell you. Becoming a Beachbody coach is about helping others, helping yourself, and becoming a better overall person. Let me explain.
Becoming a Better Person
Growing up, I used to read a ton. I was proud to be on the leaderboard for reading 25 books each summer at the library. I was proud to be so involved with everything I did. But at some point, not sure if it was college or during my adjustment period in life, I stopped making time for me. Stopped looking for ways to improve me not just physically but mentally.
I looked for excuses to not pick up a book. I never made the commitment. Thanks to Beachbody’s team of amazing managers and coaches, they reminded me that you have to love yourself if you are going to love anyone else.
So each day, I have made a commitment to read at least 25 of personal development book. Right now that is in the form of books my CTO gave me on team development and where teams struggle. I finished the book, UnFairly Labelled as well. This was something I had been procrastinating reading for work in just 4 days because of my commitment.
How can you help others if you don’t have self-love? For so long, I have been questioning things in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great life and I truly love it; however, I have found that I am bored in my job, unhappy with the current direction of my career, and could see that it was bringing me down physically.
I was okay with turning off the alarm in the morning and skipping my workouts. This led to me being okay with saying it is okay to eat ice cream every night. I was okay with making excuses for myself and letting them run my life vs. taking accountability over it.
In the past 2 months, my mindset has totally shifted. I have gotten up at 4:30 or 4 am every day this week. What, who am I? I am committed to my workouts and that includes training for my half marathons in October and my programs that are allowing my body to totally be changed. Not only am I working out hard but I am also committed to a healthy eating plan that does not count calories. Finally, I am committed to celebrating the non-scale victories with things other than food.
In 2 months, I am down over 10 pounds, my bloat is gone and I am feeling so much more confident. I have met amazing women in my coaching team and I am happier than I have been in a long time.
Now comes the fun part. I have always loved coaching whether it was the 8th-grade basketball team that I coached when I was a Senior in High School or my Nichols basketball team now. I love seeing people improve and reach their goals. The best part about coaching for me is when you see the light go on in someone’s head and you know they really get it. My second favorite part is when you see the look on their faces that they have fallen in love with what you are talking about.
As a Beachbody Coach, my role is to help people find that passion and self-love when it comes to their health and fitness. Similarly to my basketball coaching, it is my job to show up every day and share my passion. My individual goal is to help women. Brian and my goal regarding our business together is to help couples find happiness through healthy activities.
I would not be able to do this without the support of Brian. He is my rock. I am so glad to have a supportive partner who also cares just as much about his health and wellness as I do.
So many people are skeptical about Beachbody. They think it is just a scam. And you know what, some Beachbody coaches are just in it to make money. You want to make sure you are tied into a team that is about self-love. This team will be focused on helping you reach your goals. Not one that just cares about making a profit.
My team is designed to foster a culture of accountability. We have over 300 coaches in our network to help you reach your goals. If you want to start feeling better about yourself whether it is physically or mentally, I promise that shift can happen and it can happen faster than you think with the right team. I want to help you to reach your goals. I would love for you to share them with me, please leave me a comment or send me a private message.
I set a goal of helping 100 women by June 2018, will you be one of them?
Whether you are interested in becoming a Beachbody coach or just want an accountability partner for just yourself or you and your spouse, I would love to talk to you. Leave me a comment or send me an email. I promise, when you find that feeling of being happy with yourself, you will not want to let it go.
Together, we can make Fitness Breezy.
